Zindagi ek safar hai suhaana – Kishore Kumar

http://youtu.be/CIj7GoMZP0k

Binaca Geetmala finals on 29th december 1971 was a wednesday. Wednesday was the most important day for a Hindi movies music lover those days, because it was the day of Binaca geetmala. And this was no ordinary wednesday. It was the last wednesday of the year. Which meant that the most popular songs of the year would be played in the one hour long programme.

Bincca Geeta Mala started at 8.00 p.m with
Tumko bhi to aisa hi kuchh (Aap aaye bahaar aayi) at the 16th position, we had Maine tere liye hi saat rang ke sapne chune (Anand) in the 15th position, Jeewan ki bagiya mahkegi(Tere Mere Sapne) at number 14, He re Kanhaiyya kisko kahega tu maiyya(Chhoti Bahu) at number 13, Chhupke se dil de de nahin to shor mach jaayegaa (Maryaada) at number 12, Twinkle twinkle little star (Purab Aur Paschhim) at number 11, Piya tu ab to aaja(Caravan) at number 10, Mujhe thand lag rahi hai mujhse door tu na jaa (Main Sundar Hoon) at number 9, Hai na bolo bolo (Andaaz) at number 8, Zindagi kaisi hai paheli haay(Anand) at number 7, Chal chal chal mere saathi (Hathi Mere Saathi) at number 6, Rama Rama ghazab huyi gawaa re (Naya Zamaana) at number 5, Guni jano bhakt jano(Aansoo aur muskaan) at number 4, Ye jo muhabbat hai ye unka hai kaam (Kati Patang) at number 3, and Accha to hum chalte hain(Aan milo sajna) at number 2.

What a bouquet of fantastic songs. The programme culminated by playing the bugle that was reserved to be played for the most popular song of the year. And which was the most popular song of the year. Unsurprisingly, it was the song which was picturised on a motorbike riding Rajesh Khanna, with a admiring Hema Malini as the pillion rider, driving as recklessly as one can drive, singing in the magical voice of Kishore Kumar.

Here is this song from “Andaaz”(1971) which was crowned the most popular song of Binaca geetmala on this day in 1971. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar, (with some words by Asha Bhonsle), lyrics are by Hasrat Jaipuri and music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Today, most artists forming the musical team of this song are no longer with us, but this song lives on. Indeed, what a fantastic song it is.

Did one notice that the first three songs had the voices of Kishore Kumar in them and that they were all picturised on Super StarRajesh Khanna. It was no coincidence, of course. Kishore Kumar and Rajesh Khanna were the lords of all they surveyed in 1971.

On 29th December 1971 happened to be Rajesh Khanna’s birthday. So Rajesh Khanna, the then reigning superstar, was celebrating his 29th birthday on that wednesday while Binaca geetmala annual programme was toasting his success by playing his songs as the most popular songs of the year.

Super Star Rajesh Khanna was celebrating his 29th birthday then.
