Oh! What a thrill to hear Sadiq, Dilip and Rucha sing Kishore Kumar

By Manju Mittal

On July 1, 2017, not even a cold chilly weather stopped Kishore da fans to attend a music night organised by SNSR Productions and presented by Pro Accounting Business Solutions with Sydney’s popular band ”˜Jazba’ at Redgum Function Centre, Wentworthville. The youngest of the Ganguly brothers, Kishore Kumar was born as Abhas Kumar Ganguly to a wealthy Bengali family in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh. ”˜Khandwa’ that’s where I was born too; it feels great this is the same birth place of legend singer Kishore Kumar.

Kishore Kumar is a legend and is an inspiration to all. His songs are timeless and are still being sung by his generation and will continue to amaze the generations to come.   Whether chewing a pan to get the right impact in ”˜Khaike pan banarswala’ or singing ”˜Bindu re Bindu’, ”˜Ek chatur naar’ or even yodelling in ”˜Zindgi ek safar hai suhana’, Kishore Kumar was always the best.

Voice of India Monika Geetmala’s broadcaster, singer and writer Shailja Chandra talked about Kishore da’s singing, a brief history of Kishore Kumar how he entered to the world of cinema, she then welcomed Avijit Sarkar and the concert began unfolding with the lighting of the lamp by Pratibha from Pro Accounting Business.

The musical journey began with a super hit song of 70s ”˜O mere dil ke chain’ and ”˜Hume tumse pyar kitna’ by Sadiq.  Dilip Bhave captured audience with ”˜Main aaya hu’ and ”˜Zindgi ke safar mein’. Sadiq and Rucha enthralled the audience with popular song ”˜O sathi chal’ and ”˜Panna ki tamana hai’.  Some nostalgic numbers of the legendary singer set an exciting passionate romantic mood for the evening.  Numerous songs from Kishore da  were included such as ”˜Ek rasta hai zindgi’, ”˜Meri soni meri’, ”˜O manjhi re’, ”˜Zindgi ka safar’ and many more.

Sydney’s talented set of musicians were in full flow and swing as singers like Sadiq Rehmani, Dilip Bhave and Rucha Lange sang with one hit song after another much to delight of the audience. Another highlight of the show was medley by all three singers. The magic of the trio’s musical brilliance kept not only the audience entertained but the musicians of Jazba band got into mood as well.

The event management was fantastic with the entire coordination of the evening more than perfect. Stage set up was colourful with beautiful lighting effects and the sound system just perfect.

It was a night of soulful Kishore Kumar numbers and nostalgia as melodies of Kishore da songs were brought back to life. The famous number ”˜Chalte chalte mere yeh geet yaad rakhna kabhi alvida na kehna’ unleashed his ethereal presence through his evergreen tunes in our hearts. Thanks to Sydney we will never say Alvida to Kishore Kumar!
