Rafi sab aap jisa singer naa hi pahele paida hua naa hi paida hua,aapka ki is amrut bhari aawaz salamat rahe sada aur aap hi pahala aur aakhri samrat hai is sanget bhari duniya 5 a.m.
- Rubberneck - Victim. Rafi,mannadey,lata,talat,all became famouse because of shankerjaikishan,rafi! I have born inat hyderabad a holy place where the genious shanker shankerjaikishan has spent his early life playing tabla in the local temples, his associates, gurus also i know,one ustad dawood, the famous tablist,and other yester year hero chandra shekharji.
It was during the ending ofI developed great interest in music ,after continuously listening the ryhthemic light classically based songs of shankerjaikishan, and byi formed a group of music, all my friends,we frequently used to sing bhajans, and all devotional and musical compositions of shankerjaikishan,I used to play dholki,and my friend hormonium,and onother friend ghungroo,our cmbination ofmusic and singing was so impressive and famouse that we were asked to repeat such songs even six times in big theatres lke ravindra bharati, because all these songs were of shankerjaikishan compositions,like sur na saje, bhai bhanjana,duniya na bhae mujhe, all from basanth bahaar, murali bairan bhayee from new delhi, radhike tu ne,from beti bete, aye bahaar banke lubhaker chale gaye, from raaj huth, aj woh na aaye balama savan beetha jaye, from sanjh aur savera, like this, weakly 5 days at temples, and 2 days at home in our music room.
In seventees we came to bombay, met shankerji at home at noriman point and also at office at mahalakshmi, famouse cine building,spoke to shankerji,presented few songs, who was very kind enough to take us in his fiat car to recording studio, introduced sri mannadeyji and shardaji,we also met jaikishanji at gaylords, and chandra shekharji, at andheri,now only those memeories are giving me solace, and health,Till my last breath we can not forget the legends and their music, not only me but it is trend in hyderabad, in most of the functions only shankerjaikishan songs are played.
J Thanks. I think Its shanker jaikishan who made Rafi as verstile Singer. As for Other Music Directors of that Eara, had limited range.
And other most popular public liking Songs with S. Shanker jaikishan movies were sold as Hot cake…. Roshan, madanmohan etc. Sj is the greatest. After 50 years today also they are rulling by their music. If one is familiar with Shake A Tail - Various - Flaunt It 2016 Films songs down the years since and noting the variety of songs Kahan Gayelava Shyam Salone - Shankar Family ૐ Friends* - Shankar Family ૐ Friends Mohd Rafi saab sung for the great SJ clearly reflects their variety and versatility.
Other composers may find difficult to reach their talent. I went on twitter and yahoo and all that I missed all these years, I was updated. In early I was outside Gobind Mahal at Marine Drive, just to get glimse of Jaikishan but unfortunately could not see him.
On Binaca Geetmala I used to keep track of their songs for years. Todays music directors are lucky as they can be seen everywhere on the tv programmes, we really miss SJ.
I really enjoyed going thru all the comments. God Bless all. I am one of the greatest fans of SJ. Shankar in one of the interviews quoted about S. The space is too short for expressing my feelings. SJ ,undoubtedly the greatest of all the duos gave Rafi some of his best.
How long did Jaikishen live after ? He died in and perhaps had the opportunity to compose only for few films like Tumse Achcha kaun hai,Andaz ,Mera Naam Joker ,and Patanga which were all released in the early 70s.
And in all these filsm except Mera Naam Joker they gave Rafi his due. However, after they also experimented successfully with Kishore Kumar. In fact, Raj Kapoor mentioned in one of his interviews on the TV that he gave up hero roles because Jaikishen,Mukesh and Shailendra had all passed away and no one can replace them.
SJ were also greatly responsible for giving Lata her own recognition. But it seems that towards the end their relation had strained and Kahan Gayelava Shyam Salone - Shankar Family ૐ Friends* - Shankar Family ૐ Friends stopped using Lata.
It should be noted that Jaikishen died in Ravine - Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (SACD, Album) early 40s in the year only after which people seriously started recognising LPs music.
But the fact remains that LP compromised on the quality of their tunes and never really came anywhere close to SJ. In fact it is ridiculous to even think of comparing LP with the magic wizards SJ.
The 70s saw the end of the golden era with deaths of S. D Burman,Jaikishen and Madan Mohan. Also Naushad could not recreate the magic of the 60s. O P Nayyaranother big name in 50s and 60s became helpless without Asha and his composotions were never again the same. Shankar -Jaikishen were the divinely inspired musicians. They were the victims of politics in the Bolliwood music industry.
It is said that Lata Mangeshkar had demanded an unfair share from the royalty of their musical compositions. Without SJ Rajendra Kumar would never have become successful.
But he also became selfish and forgot his benefactors and signed a contract with R. Dharmender had also gone back on his words when he did not keep his word to Shankar that he would sign him for his film Bicchu directed by Sai Paranjape.
To cap it all Raj Kapoor deserted the great musicians when he invited Laxmikant Pyarelal to score music for Bobby. A number of such behind-the-curtain evenspolitics in the bollywood affected. They will continue to inspire minds of posterity through their immortal compositions. Unde the guidance he sang in different voices for Rajendra kumarShammi Kapoor, Dilip kumar,and others. SJ were one pair of Music directors who knew their job and were judicious in using the singers.
This perhaps is the reason how their music sounded fresh. That was the reason for churning out gems after gems. I think personal opinion must not be made a rule. Both the songs are great and it will lead to a conflict between the fans of two legends.
No one can ignore a fact that Rafi Sb has sung about songs Although his ardent fans claim it to be Mukesh ji on other hand has sung songs. The uniqueness Dont You Want To Stay? - Bill Withers - Making Music these legends never made them competitors and they both remained admirers of each other and great friends too besides being the humble human beings.
Kahan Gayelava Shyam Salone - Shankar Family ૐ Friends* - Shankar Family ૐ Friends present lot of singers have alot to learn from them as singers and humans. SJ no doubt were out of this world. No one can replace them. With the help of media and sponsored publicity present day composers can make big claims but I challange if any one can touch the following gems of SJ all in different voices.
Jane Kahan gaye woh din. Yad na Jaye beeto dino ki. Tu Pyar ka sagar hai. Ruk Ja raat thehar ja o Chanda. Zindagi ik safar hai suhana. Unhe tu bhool ja aye dil.
Parde mein rehne do. Rula kar chal diye ik din. There is absolutely no doubt that the other three produced gems during this period, but in my view S-J were no less. What is astonishing is that even from to aroundRafi still sang slightly more than Mukesh for S-J I have done some research and came to an interesting conclusion. Lata and Mukesh ofcourse received great songs from S-J during this time too and after. Talat has beautiful songs with the duo during this period including many of my favourites from Daag, Aas, Patita, Shikast etc.
Where would you rank S-J in the period of ? SJ and Rafi combo ke baare mein to jitna kaha jaye kum hi hai. In fact what I feel words are not enough to describe the pristine purity of their numerous creations. SJ and Rafi combined well in the film Suraj. He showed the audience that Rafi could adapt to the dialogue delivery style of De Anand and sang very melodious songs under SJ all of which were super hits.
In Response to the question of Mr. Narayan, Rafi had sung even 5 times the songs of SJ if compared with Mukesh. The number does not matter. What matters more is that SJ had used Rafi for every type of song that can be composed for bollywood films including bhajans, semi-classical songs, rock and roll songs, folk songs, Kahan Gayelava Shyam Salone - Shankar Family ૐ Friends* - Shankar Family ૐ Friends.
The list can go. Articles after articles can be written on the outstanding relationship of SJ with Rafi. Shankar Jaikishan had used the westernised Im Gonna Love You Too - 13th Floor Elevators - Through The Rhythm of Rafi more than other composers in bollywood films, yet when the relationship of Rafi with renowned composers is discussed the names of Naushad, Roshan, OP Nayyar, Madanmohan gets predominance which is unfair for Shankar Jaikishan.
A very informative article that spells out the relationship between Mohammed Rafi and Shankar Jaikishan. However, I would like to mention one wonderful music compositin of the romantic mood of Shankar Jaikishan and sung by Mohammed Rafi Rafi in an outstnding manner. Vivek Mehta : Very true, great song, great rendition, see how rafi saaheb almost cries and pleads to the gods.
Rickshawala mein Rickshawala sung for Mehmood in the film Choti bahen sung by Rafi Saheb composed by SJ in an altogether differnet mood is one of the popular song during 50s. Not to forget immortal song ,purely classicalwhich I firmly believe could not and cannot be sung in the same style by any other singer other than probably manna deyas rafi Beres Hammond / Horace Andy - Call On The Father / Every Tongue Shall Tell under sj ,from Basant Bahar.
All Rights Reserved. Rafi Saab, is indeed the best singer of all times. Today, 39 years after his death, he lives on eternally. His songs today are just as popular as they were during his lifetime. Souvik Chatterji. Anonymous says:. December 19, at am.
