TRIBUTE TO SHANKAR JAIKISHAN–19…..ALWAYS A DIFFERENT S-J.

MANY a times we take up many jobs, may be difficult, but our energy and mastermindedness, help us to prove our temperamental versality……..sorry, the line belongs to Shankar Jaikishan, (may i call them the duo of 1949), when they pulled the chain of HINDI FILM MUSIC IN THEIR FAVOUR……Yes, it is a matter of laughter for me to conceive that composing film music is so easy……Nay, it is a tricky business, if one wants to play longer by putting their soul in their compositions, that match with the contemporary era for full survival. GOD GIVEN GIFT, THE DUO WERE AT THEIR BEST FOR FULL TWO DECADES….AND HAD THE JAI SURVIVED, IT IS NOT A JOKE THAT THEY STRETCHED TWO DECADES FURTHER SETTING NEW TRENDS. for here one cannot indulge in the whims of one’s own temperament and inclination, which may be possible for a classical singer to spend several years mastering 30 to 40 RAAGS and making a career of them. for FILMS IS A COMMERCIAL WORLD AND IS  NEVER POSSIBLE FOR A MUSIC COMPOSER TO STAND EASY (putting hands at back) after developing 40 different tunes, unable to portend how many will succeed. HERE THE S-J HAD MASTERY (in the opinion of one young music director of their times) IN DECLARING WHICH SONG OF THEIRS WILL BE MORE POPULAR THAN THE OTHER FROM THEIR OWN CREATIONS (THE SONGS HAD TO BE SET ACCORDING TO ACTORS AND ACTRESSES IN DIFFERENT FILMS)……….IT IS A THOROUGH FACT THAT WHEN S-J WERE GIVEN THE ASSIGNMENT, SOME OF THE SCEPTICS WONDERED AT THE COMPETENCE OF THE YOUNGSTERS TO HANDLE A THEME WHICH ACCORDING TO THEM CUD BE HANDLED ONLY BY NAUSHAD OR ANIL BISWAS………BUT THE DUO TOOK UP THE CHALLENGE WITH A BOISTEROUS ”BRAHMACHARI”, A WESTERNISED ”AN EVENING IN PARIS”, A FOLKISH ”TEESRI KASAM”. A BREEZY ”BARSAT”, A CLASSICAL ”BASANT BAHAR”, A SERIOUS ”DIL EK MANDIR”, A SOULFUL ”DIL APNA AUR PREET PARAI”, A DECOITY ”JIS DESH MEIN GANGA BEHTI HAI”, A PAUPER’S PARADISE ”UJALA”, A SIMPLETON’S ”SHRI 420”, SUFFERING WOMAN ”PATITA”, A SAD ”AAH”, A COMEDIAN ‘PROFESSOR”, A JUMPING JOCKY ‘JUNGLEE”, LOVE TRIAGLE ”SANGAM”, A DESPARATE LOVER ”JHUK GAYA AASMAN”, ”SASURAL”, ”HAMRAHI”, ”ASLI NAQLI”, ”JAB PYAR KISI SE HOTA HAI”, MULTI STARRER ”MERA NAAM JOKER”,…….. IN THEIR STRIDE AS A PART OF A DAY’S WORK AND WHETHER THEY COMPOSED FOR RAJKAPOOR, DILIP KUMAR, RAJENDRA KUMAR(A JUBILEE KUMAR BECOZ OF THEIR MUSIC), SHAMMI KAPOOR—-(CUD U IMAGINE NAUSHAD OR MADAN MOHAN COMPOSING FOR HIM?).  ….THIS DIVERSITY AND VERSATILITY PROVIDED SHANKAR JAIKISHAN THRU SEVERAL YEARS OF CHANGING FASHIONS AND COMPETITION (which was evident in thier song in ”MUD MUD KE NA DEKH.(SHRI 420) AND IN ANARI ”NINETEEN FIFTY SIX, NINETEEN FIFTY SEVEN……..”follow the interlude wordings and AS IN ”TEEN KANISTER PEET PEET KAR GALA PHAD KAR CHILLANA, YAAR MERE MAT BURA MAAN, YEH GAANA HAI NA BAJANA HAI…….” IN LOVE MARRIAGE.'(several years trend till today)…………TO CONTINUE……..gshroti@in.com……….’.
