The Great Late Mohammad Rafi was a melody king. Whenever I hear his voice I always become fresh from any boredom situation. He had such power in his voice that it could expose out the inner core of hearty emotions of every person who tried to get lost in his peculiar melody. Even now it is as refreshing as it could get. He had voice as melodious as an incarnation of god. He cannot be compared to any singer of anytime, such melodious was his era. He was truly a blessing for his parents. He deserves everlasting dignity. Read More »
I am a huge fan of Rafi Saahab. When i was around 10 in the year 1993, the first song that I heard of his voice was ‘Yahoo!! Chahe Koi Mujhe Junglee Kahe. At that time I did not knew who was Rafi, then I heard another gem of his and that was ‘Aaj Mausam Bada Beimaan Hai Bada‘. Read More »
संगीतकी दुनियाके तानसेनो तथा कानसेनो…… सदाबहार रफीसहब के सम्मानमे मेरी भावनाओंका गुलदस्ता पेश करता हूँ …..ऐ मोहम्मद रफ़ी तेरी रुखसतपर आंसू निकल पड़े थे …तेरी खामोशी दिल चीर गयी थी ….लेकिन यह सोचकर ऊपरवालेसे न कोई गिला किया था न कोई शिकवा,.के.शायद उसे भी तेरी याद सताती होगी ….उसकी संगीत सभा तेरेबिन अधूरी होगी ..यही सोचकर हम आंसू पी गए थे……ऐ रफ़ी तेरे मुहब्बत भरे,प्यारभरे अनगिनत नगमोने वो सुकून दिया जो जन्नत में भी नसीब नहीं होगा Read More »
Allah e Allah kar pyaare bhai Allah e Allah sang the fakir who kept appearing in the movie Pavitra Paapi, a film marked by the appearance of the father-son duo of the great Balraj Sahni and the debutant Parikshit Sahni. Every time there was a crucial scene in the film it would end with the fakir walking by singing to himself, oblivious of the worldly happenings.
Was this by any chance, the portrayal of the fakir who used to walk the streets of Kotla Sultan Singh as the young Pheeko would follow him all over the village almost till the border, marveling the voice of the mendicant as he sang Khedande din char ek malk, khedande din char. It may have been, it may not have been. But whenever I think of the song from the film Pavitra Paapi , the image of this young boy running after the fakir comes to my mind. Read More »

Many singers past, present and even future (I can vouch this with certainty) cannot match the singing prowess of Mohammad Rafi Saab, when it comes to playback singing. He is certainly the ultimate to meet the total expectations of the various parameters of playback singing, be it voice, range, feel, depth, nuances, diction, clarity, emotions, mood or what have you!
Many music directors have exploited and taken full advantage of his extremely unreachable heights of his singing qualities and Rafi Saab in turn, has delivered more than what any music director would have expected. Such were his singing abilities and qualities. Read More »

A slim, almost impoverished looking young man, albeit with a twinkle in his eye and a charming smile, wooed his lesser known heroine in a low-budget film. The film would go on to be sent to various film festivals, become known as the first film in which Bhupendra sang a solo, but most people would not remember it as the first film in which the winner of a major talent hunt would be playing the hero.
Jatin Khanna, now rechristened as Rajesh Khanna wooed Chand Usmani, who would later go on to play either sister to heroes in B grade films or maybe the mujre wali in B- grade films. But the song that was chosen for this occasion was hauntingly beautiful. The hero urges the lady to stay on, by singing “ aur kuchh der thaher aur kuchh der na ja….”. The song was rendered flawlessly. Read More »
