SHOW – 1 – 2016/07/03 SONG 1 – 10:40 AM Bhajan... 01-Sundar Gopalam CD MISC-20160703 Track#01 6:20 DIVINE CHANTS OF KRISHNA-2004; Devaki Pandit Play the Song 1 for 4 minutes Kishore is on a much deserved vacation to visit family in California. Hi Kishore...sab thhik hai. So I will be your host on this, “An Indian Morning”, for the next two Sundays. When Kishore asked me to take over for these two weeks, I said sure because how hard could it be. 4 ya 6 ya 8 gaane aur chhutti. As it turns out this was not easy at all. How do I choose a song, a movie, a genre, a theme…how do I put together something entertaining and informative like Kishore does. Where do I begin? For example...meri samasyaa... According to a source, 9418 Hindi movies were produced between 1931 and 2010. In that time, some of India’s most prolific singers have sung...let’s see… Asha Bhosle>7000 Lata Mangeshkar>5000 Mohammed Rafi>4000 Kishore Kumar>2648 Geeta Dutt>1480 Manna Dey>1392 Shamshad Begum>1287 Mukesh>900 Talat Mahmood>450 Hemant Kumar>275 That’s almost 20,000 songs by just 4 singers. Phir kahte hain Geeta Dutt nay 1500 gaane gaaye hain, Manna Dey nay 1392, Mukesh nay 900 say upar. In what I, as an old timer consider the golden age of Indian filmi music, there are over 30,000 songs to choose from. Then there have been so many other singers, Sonu Nigam, Udit Narayan, Kavita Krishnamurthy etc. How do I choose? So I stole an idea, like many Hindi films steal ideas… Though fun fact: The theme of reincarnation is a very popular theme in Hindi movies. But did you know that the idea of reincarnation as in the 1958 movie, Madhumati inspired the Hollywood movie, “The Reincarnation of Peter Proud” which in turn inspired the Bollywood film “Karz” which in turn influenced the Hollywood movie, “Chances Are”. Or that the 1975 film, “Chhotti Si Baat” is believed to have inspired the Hollywood movie “Hitch” which turned around to inspire the Hindi film “Partner”...full circle!! Thoda meinay chooraya... Anyways... Haan to so, Hindi film songs have been present in Hindi cinema right from the first sound film, Alam Ara in 1931 which had 7 songs. 5-7 songs are average today. But in 1931 the film, Shirheen Farhad had 42 song sequences strung together in the manner of an opera and later, Indra Sabha had as many as 69 song sequences. This is the idea I stole, to make a movie jahan bolo kum, gaane jyaade. I love it! So our story begins, we don’t know where...it could be in Switzerland, it could be in New York. It could be in Ottawa, and why not Ottawa...after all Mayor Jim Watson on his last trip to India signed a deal to have a Bollywood movie shot in Ottawa. Screen pur movie ka naam aata hai. An Indian Morning presents A Rakesh Misra totally copied production of Jawani Ke Gaano Mein Kahani With english subtitles: A story of the young Told in songs already sung wah!!
