(A musical tribute to Joy Mukherjee on his 2nd death anniversary)

By Biman Baruah

Banda Parwar Tham Lo Jigar

Mohammed Rafi was the magical voice of actor Joy Mukherjee from LOVE IN SHIMLA (1960) to LOVE IN BOMBAY (2013). In the 100 years of Indian Cinema, it was a very exceptional case that release of film almost after 40 years from its completion. Normally, there is delay in completion of a film, but in this case the delay was in release. In 1971, Joy Mukherjee produced and directed LOVE IN BOMBAY at the huge budget of Rs. 30 to 35 lacs which was completed in 1973-74, but due to some unavoidable reasons he was not able to release the film in two-three attempts.

Mohd Rafi and Guru Dutt

Eminent director, actor and producer Guru Dutt had a great relationship with legendary singer great Mohammad Rafi Sahab. Just because the relationship lasted for 14 years till the sad death of Guru Dutt in 1964, Rafisahab did not get an opportunity to contribute in more than 100 songs for Guru Dutt. But majority of the songs were masterpieces which adorn the golden music of the 1950s and 1960s. (more…)

By Mr. B.Koshy

His voice is incomparable thus every song became significant having asked to select one favorite song by my friend; I thought to do so would be disgraceful to the noble soul.

Therefore, I walked a little farther for those who love him and for those who couldn’t take delight in the nectar of his voice. (more…)
