Recreate Retro and Romance
Glorious era of music that Kishore Kumar and his contemporary music directors like R. D. Burman have created, still lingers in young and old hearts alike. This unique music reality show literally pays homage to the great singer and his indelible presence in Indian Cinema. The mystery and enigma of Kishore da’s music has always given us pleasure and will continue to do so.
Leena Chandavarkar and general public remembering Kishore Da.
This episode of K for Kishore saluted Kishore as well as the most beautiful of all emotions ‘Love’. Numerous hearts beat listening to the tunes of kishore da’s romantic songs, each finding something that suits his/her life or his/her mood. The rainbow of Kishore da’s music fills unique colors to each and everyone.
Babul Supriyo singing Tum Hi Tho Laaye Jo Jeevan Mein Mere
Babul Supriyo, after going through the ordeal of signing two shows with two different channels finally managed to land on the sets of K for Kishore, as promised by Sony entertainment Channel. The beautiful ex-hostess of another music show ‘Antakshari’ (she used to compare the show with Anu Kapoor) Rajeshwari Sachdeva seems to compliment Supriyo. The easy going manner of the singer and the beauty gels very well indeed.
Unlike other reality shows, this show starts with general public expressing their love for the legendary singer. As you wait for the curtains to be drawn up, you hear Babul Supriyo echoing the stage. This episode began with Supriyo like a true disciple of Kishore Kumar singing “Tumse Kehnewali…”. The star guest for this week as expected was one of the talented beauties of Indian silver screen, Asha Parekh. Supriyo tries to impress her with the “Pyar Deewana Hota Hai”. With the regular judges Sudesh Bhonsle, Bappi Lahri and Amit Kumar, the show came alive to the fullest.
Vinod Seshari singing Chehera Hai Yaa Chand Khila Hai
The first contestant, or rather as the show addresses the participants like the followers of the great singer actor, Jhoomru in this episode was Vinod Seshadri. Imagining himself to be on a beach admiring the beauty of a young girl, Vinod sings “Chehra hai yaa chand khila hai” from the movie “Saagar”. Among various mixed comments, his voice praised, miss of rhythm condemned, Vinod was advised to try harder and come up with an improved performance in the next show, with a total score of 19.
Sameer Memon singing Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si
Vinod was followed by Sameer Memon, a true disciple of Kishore da and a strong music believer, and a true romantic, created magic with the sensuous number “Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si” (strangely the background dancer reminded that of “Pyar Hua Iqraar Hua”). His wife tried to add up to the magic by coming to the stage, and the trick worked as Sameer got a better deal than Vinod. He was praised for his true following of Kishore da’s romanticism. He scored 21.
Apurva singing O Mere Dil Ke Chain
The third Jhumroo was Apurva, with a relatively younger voice, filled the air with sensuous charm with “O Mere Dil Ke Chain”, picturized on a sexy Tanuja and a most romantic Rajesh Khanna. He was commented to have missed the mood and to practice more. He scored a total of 19. Here Amit Kumar remembered an incident that gave the message, to never stop learning and accepting and understanding mistakes and not to repeat them ever again. Kishore da was not only a great singer but an humble person by nature and the way he used to carry himself in the shootings and recordings was simply amazing.
Pramod Rampal – Raat Kali Ek Khaa
Pramod Rampal, though looked a lot nervous, came with one or Kishore da’s magical numbers, “Raat Kali Ek Khwab Mein Ayee” from the movie ‘Buddha Mil Gaya’. Though, he tried to impress Asha Parekh with “Yeh Naina, Yeh Kajal, Yeh Zulfen”, which was very very melodious, but he was unable to secure a good score for himself and ended up with just an 18.
Arnab Chakrawarti – Kitne Bhi Tu
The Fifth Jhumroo, Arnab Charkrabarti, sang a hummable and danceable number “Sanam Teri Kasam”. He too was advised to practice more and managed a mere 20 from the strict judges. He made mistakes in pitch, rhythm and missed the total mood of the song, the more important factor being Kishore da’s lively spirit.
Harsh Vyas – Chahiye Thoda Pyar
The last singer for this episode was Harsh Vyas, tried to strike to targets with one aim. He sang a Bappi Lahiri composition “Pyar Chahiye Thoda Pyar Chahiye”. His effort seemed to touch the judges but only ended up with 19.
With the announcement of the amazing prizes of album contract with Saregama and LG mobile phones, the show continues with yet another episode on Saturday 29th Dec, 2007 with the rest of the 6 Jhumroos. Curtains fell down with Lata-Kishore number, the alluring “Accha Toh Hum Chalte Hai”. This also meant, there will be a tomorrow, with some more singers and some more Kishore da and his unforgettable music.
