As a Kishore Kumar fan what are your reactions to this piece of trivia?
I found this article to be extremely useful for me. Thanks!…
Hi All,Kishore da fans,
I am one of the crazy fan of both Mohd Rafi Sahab and Kishore da.Both are great singers,Lengendry Singers.Why all will go for comparison between the two,that is leading to a quarrel between the two lengendry fans.I should say we should enjoy the music,the songs they both sung.
In there hay days both were very good friends,there was no any competition between them,in fact they sung so many songs together.Rafi saab sung quite more songs(around 26,000) songs,than Kishore da,that is bcz of Kisore da was in lime light for some time.
I should never try to compare the two singers,as they have there own unique style etc.
Enjoy the songs..
Dear Music lovers,
YES LET US NOT COMPARE BOTH THESE LEGENDS WHO ARE NOT WITH US BUT ALL FANS N LOVERS HAVE THE GREAT HITS OF RAFI SAB AND KISHOREDA.
FOR HEAVENS SAKE IT IS LIKE COMPARING DON BRADMAN WITH SACHIN BOTH ARE LEGENDS IN CRICKET,
IN MAHABHARAT WHO IS GREATER KARAN OR ARJUN?.
LIKE WISE WE CAN GO ON GO ON ………….TILL INFINITY.
KINDLY USE PROPER LANGUAGE BAPAN AS KISHORE DA IN HIS LIFETIME HAS NEVER USED SUCH FOUL AND BAD LANGUAGE. WHY ARE U GETTING FRUSTRATED?
ACCORDING TO THE MUSIC LOVERS CIRCLE BOTH RAFI SAB AND KISHOREDA WHO WERE BEST FRIENDS AND LOVED BY ALL.
R.D Burman did the accurate comparison of the two great singers years back.
He said in a malayalam weekly (If not mistaken he was in Kerala for a visit at that time)that When ever i am hearing Rafi I think of Evan Lendel’s play, it is according to the rules, he sings within the rules, but Kishore is like Mc’Enro he knows how to play for the public for that,he adds tricks . He also added that new singers are no where near them but they pretends that they are like Kishore and Rafi.
Why we are shouting over two great singers.They are above all comparisons.
I didn’t know that there is so much hate between Rafi fans and Kishore fans in India today.Why is this in Gods Name????
Both Singers are dead..now…
Try to live in peace with each other please.
I happen to chance this blog while surfing. I find the abusive language by some of the contributors (mostly die hard fans of KK) disgusting.
A fact and two questions
Both Mohammad Rafi & Kishore Kumar came into the film industry in the later forties. If Kishore Kumar is made to be out to be the greatest, the best and what have you, then
1) where was Kishore from then to 1969, except for songs for films in which he acted and stray numbers for Dev Anand (and possibly for some other actors) here and there?
2) why Shankar Jaikishan & O P Nayyar used Mohammad Rafi as playback for Kishore in Shararat and Raagini respectively ?
As for me, I think we are fortunate that Hindi film music has been blessed by so many gifted artistes – composers, lyricists and singers – that we should rejoice.
For some of the contributors – is my English language acceptable or does it not measure up to your expectations ?
Kishore Kumar is best.
I guess this would be a on-going debate on who was the best. I am an ardant fan of Rafi and KK. I consider them great playback singers in their own right.
Rafi had a well trained soft voice where as KK had a very masculine voice. Both were gifted playback singers .look at how Rafi used to blend his voice for Johnny walker, Devanand…and Kisore kumar for Rajesh Khanna, Sanjeev kumar , Amitabh.
At the end of the day both were great singers of the golden era of hindi music followed by the likes of Hemant Kumar, Manna dey and Muesh.
Sometimes competition can kill the norturing of new artistes …but thats inevitable!.
Like God, Great Kishore Da could not expressed in Words. Everybody is a Hero in his own, but Unlike anbody, Kishore Da …( i dont know, what he was…). If somebody is blessed with such a fantastic talents, then for me he can only be a great saint..Mahatama.
Kishore Da Tum Bahut Yaad Aate Ho..Plz come back..
Let us not compare any-one … why do we need to?
No one has forced you to .. What is compelling you to do so?
Those who do compare these greats (Rafi saheb & Kishore da) are not true lovers of music but just want to be known as one.
Just keep quiet.
If you HAVE to compare keep your comments with yourself.
All singers of the yesterdars were unique in their own respect. Perhaps comparing any one personality with one another is an insult to both. I am a die heart Rafi fan, but I avoid comparision with any of his counterparts, whether Kishore, Manna Dey, Talat, Mukesh, etc. This being a website dedicated to Kishore Kumar, I will try to talk more about Kishore.
Personally I have always enjoyed Kishore whether as a comedain or an actor or composer or a singer. Kishore was a multi dimentional legend completely unique in his own respect.
I think that people like Bapan are either fanatic Bengali or have no knowledge and appreciation of music. Kishore Kumar certainly was a great singer, and one color of the rainbow of singers as K.L.Saigal, Mukesh, Talat, Manna Dey and Rafi. A true music lover shall love everyone of them as everyone provided a different flavour. K.L.Saigal was the inspiration,technically Manna Dey was on top, KK had a great voice, Talat was best for his style of Ghazals, Mukesh (people still love his songs) was different and Rafi had unparalleled versatility and range.
KK’s success lies in introduction of light songs with changing times and over-exposure of Rafi. I love his songs too, but I agree with Manna Dey when he says that Rafi & Lata were a cut above the rest and when Lata says in her album ‘Shradhanjali’ that such great singers do not come again and again (for Rafi).
Anyone who abuses (or hates) any great singer has no respect for music.
i dont like the idea of srk making a film about the great kishore kumar. kishore is great because of the mystery he is. i dont want anybody to impersonate him especially srk as he is a star, and any film that a star makes, fans will only watch because of the star, they are not interested in what the film is about. and that will be disrespectful to kishore. i dont think any actor can suit the character of kishore, maybe amit kumar can but i dont know what he’s like. srk just want to make money by copying kishore, but he will be the worst actor if he does. he should just stick to his karan johar waste of time love stories.
SINGER WOHI HAI, JO AISA GAYE KI LAGE KI US GAANE PAR FILMAYE ACTOR NE GAAYA HAI, AISA VARIATION (VESATILITY) KISHORE DA KI AWAZ MEIN HAI.
KOI BATAYE MUJHE KI “HALF TICKET” MEIN LADKE AUR LADKI KI AWAZ MEIN (SONG- AAKE SIDHI LAGI JAISE DIL PAR KATARIYA) , MALE PART KISNE GAAYA HAI, KISHORE DA NE YA PRAN NE.
TO BAKI HIT HEROES KE STYLE OR TONE MEIN GAYEN TO KOI BADI NAHIN. (RAJESH KHANNA, AMITABH, DEV ANAND…..)
Bhaiaya mere ! To banao na FILM. Humey bhi kishore da ki film ka badi besabri se intezzar hai. Agar ho sakey to unki unreleased films kahin se milsakti hai.
Ya phir “DHOBI DOCTOR”, “MEHLON KE KHWAB”, “DHAKE KI MALAMAL” ki VCD.
KOI TO BATAYE, YAAR
Is this sad saga still going on!! What is it with everyone trying to argue whos’s better than the other? How sad this is?? I’m getting sick & tired of this Rafi-Kishore saga! Why can’t everyone just respect that these two names were two of the greatest male singers.
I’ve read alot of comments on here putting Rafi down, don’t these ignoriant people know that Kishore was himself an admirer of Rafi, along with Mukesh and Manna dey. Kishore would sing Rafi numbers as a tribute on stage.
To these so called Kishore fans with limited brain cells who put such ignoriant comments, what would Kishore (YOUR GURU) say about these people if he was alive to read such comments! He would be ASHAMED TO CALL THESE PEOPLE HIS FANS! The same would go for so called Rafi fans who put down Kishore in the same way! JUST END ALL THIS!
For me I just love these two singers, I have thousands of tracks by them and counting.
There is only ONE GREAT BEING & THATS GOD ALMIGHTY!
comparing kk and rafi is like comparing the north and south poles. they were both greats, but when it comes to who’s legend i idolise the most, it is kk. his voice is still fresh today – such depth and range. his voice still sends shivers down my spine on just what a blessed talent he was blessed with. for me, kk was born to inspire, but no will ever equal his reach. truly, kk still lives in our ears.
KishoreKumar????? What to say about this name? Tell me anything, which Kishore Kumar has not done; with his own excellence? I have fairly good collection of Kishoreda’s songs. If you hear his each and every song, you will realize that this man is such a perfectionist; as if he singing his own story.
Aur kya bataaoun main Kishireda ke bare mein? KishoreKumar is a school where you learn how to love someone, how to express your feelings, how to be a good and honest human being, how to be naughty and make the atmosphere very happy with your innocent jokes and expressions. To me, Kishore is a GURU, jinki ungli pakad ke sari zindagi has ke guzaari jaa sakti hai!!! Aur saath mein Panchamda, Gulzaar, Ashaji, Lataji and mere pyare Amitda bhi to hai. To safar to aur bhi suhana ho gayaa hai. Zindagi se koi gilaa hai hi nahin!!
While leaving this work, I will miss all of these gems!!!!
Thats what I can say about my Kishoreda.
Jug jug jiyo Kishoreda!! Aapka jadu badhta hi jaye!!!
As a fan I realise that film based upon Kishorda will be a great memorandom to all of us. This work will be done very carefully.
It will be a best tribute to late Shri Kishorda. We the music lovers are thankful to Late Shri S D Burman sahab, Shri Anil Vishwas saheb, Shri Khemchand Prakash sahab, C Ramchandji, Shri Salil Choudharyji and offcource Young Shri Dev Anandji. Noushad had done injustice to Kishorda. I will anxiously wait for this film.
in an indian movie with a hero and a freind (like amitab and amjad khan) or (shashi kapoor and shatroG) or (rajesh and asrani) kishore kumar always sang for the hero and M.rafi sahab sang for friend of the hero, , dont you think that explaines alot ? rafi sahab’s fans …………….if you always remember this , you should never compare the 2. …….END.

Kishoreda is God.he is the greatest and most versatile artist having millions of fans all over the world.
I pay my tribute to Kishore Kumar on his 19th death anniversary.
how r u.
I am a huge Kishore Da and Rafi saab fan, and am a new visitor to this site.
They are legends of indian film music, both have different style of singing.
When I listen to Kishore da songs I feel he is number one singer, and when i listen to
rafi saab songs i feel the same for him.(no. 1)
but i am very disappointed to read the language of KK fans and Rafi fans against one another.
How can a person malign any of these two legendary singers.
My advice to all rafi fans is to listen Kishore da songs and KK fans to listen rafi saab songs.
after that u will not be able to write anything bad for these two.
We are blessed with the voices of Rafi, Kishore , Lata and Asha among others.
We should enjoy their songs and not fight with each other.
Kishoreda is the all-time greatest singer & versatile genius in the world.He is the best.
So, you are trying to drag me in your dishonest claims now. Read my post carefully before making any allegations…I won’t allot more than these two sentences to you this time round. You don’t deserve even these two lines.
Do u Know why SD used KK in Abhimaan?please look to film story where a female singer win the male singer KK,IF SD Put Mohd Rafi to sing in this case the male singer never be loser from Female singer,KK has one rupee less than Lata!!!! said by KK himself.
Offourse KK is good singer If I agree or not but much greater than all singer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Bapan please read what wrote by KK fan Pankaj Mohan the true when KK changed his name and become muslim for a girl,As u said it is not true.
Dear Administrator why u delete what is true and don’t delete what is nwrong?
