# Mohd.Rafi

29 years from now(31st July 1980) golden voice of Mohd. Rafi became silent for forever,much has been said and written about this great soul in these 29 years so i will be not writing anything about him but posting here a picture of my two favorite singers together.This is the best picture of these two singers together which i have seen ever.Do you agree with me!

Hi Zaheer,

Good to be the first to post my comment. This is really a rare picture of 2 a classical maestro and one a musical maestro.

Both were great persons and had a great mutual respect for each other. It is a pity RD rebelled against the industry and did not favour Rafi...

There is still no one around who can walk in their footsteps....

मुझे याद आता है किशोर जब नये-नये इन्ड्स्ट्री में आये थे (बतौर नायक) तो कुछ गीतों में रफ़ी ने उनके लिये पार्श्व गायन किया था.

ये दोनों महानतम गायक थे, कोई शक नहीं. बढ़िया फ़ोटो, बढ़िया पोस्ट.

the song which suits to the photo

" bane chae dusman jamana hamara
salamat rahe dostana humara"

sung by this legends only...

Comic World said...

Old Man Mozz: Yes,both are legends and no one being less than each other.
R.D.Burman gained popularity with Rafi only(Teesri Manzil,Yaadon Ki Barat etc) but later preferred Kishore more during Kishore's peak period but Rafi bounced back with great hits like 'Amar Akbar Anthony,Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahi' before death snatched him away.
Anyway,now nobody is even near to shadow of both legends.

Comic World said...

Kuldeep: Yeah,Kuldeep two legends and both my best favorite along with Mukesh.
By the way very befitting caption for the photo as Kishore Kumar held a very high respect for Mohd.Rafi and on Rafi funeral he was such grief stricken as his best friend or brother has passed.

Comic World said...

Qasim: Indeed,Qasim,indeed.

Comic World said...

Vetal Shikhar: रफ़ी ने किशोर के लिए 'रागिनी(1957),शरारत(1958) और 'प्यार दीवाना'(1972) के लिए अपनी आवाज़ दी थी जो की अपने-आप में बहुत बड़ी बात थी क्यूंकि उस समय किशोर भी स्थापित गायक के रूप में नाम प्राप्त कर चुके थे,बावजूद इसके 'ओ.पी.नय्यर(रागिनी),
शंकर-जयकिशन(शरारत) और लाला सत्तार'(प्यार दीवाना) ने धुन के हिसाब से फिट बैठने वाली आवाज़(रफ़ी) को वरीयता दी.

वेताल शिखर said...

क्या? १९७२ में? ये तो कमाल की जानकारी दी उस्ताद. यार, ये फ़िल्मों पर और क्यों नहीं लिखते? खजाना समेटे बैठे हो.

Comic World said...

वेताल शिखर: धन्यवाद्,फिल्मों पर 1995 में लिखना शुरू किया था,उस समय की कई फिल्म पत्रिकाओं में लेख छपने का सौभाग्य प्राप्त हो चूका है,बाद में करियर तराशने की जद्दोजहद में कलम का साथ कुछ समय के लिए छुट गया था,अब फिर से कलम सँभालने की कोशिश करना चाह रहा हूँ,देखिये कितना संतुलन बना पता हूँ.

Hi Zaheer..

Great picture dear!!!

This indeed is the best picture of these two legends together.

Dono mere favorite singers hain.

Apart from these two my favorite are "Yeshudas" who is a great singer and "jagjit Singh" jin ka gazals mai koi mukabla nahi hai.

Rafi sung for the first time for KK in Raagini(1958), song was Man Mora Baawra.Maze ki baat hai Ragini ke Producer the Ashok Kumar, aur jab Kishore ko pata chala Nayyar unka ek geet Rafi se gawanewale hain to Kishore shikayat le kar jaa pahunche Bade Bhaiya Ashok Ke Paas. Magar Nayyar bhi zid par add gaye ki ye gaana koi gaayega to Rafi hi Gaayenge! Hua bhi yehi, kishore ko apni galti samajh mein aa gayi. Baad mein Shararat (1959)ke liye gaaye geet - Ajab Hai dastaan Hai Teri Aye Zindagi ko aawaz dene se pehle Rafi ne khud Kishore se contact kiya, Kishore said nobody but only you can sing the song, Rafi accepted Re.1 as his fee for the song.
Later Rafi also sung for KK in Pyar Diwana (1972) - Apni Aadat Hai Sabko Salaam Karna, picturized on KK & Mumtaz.

Comic World said...

Toonfactory: Yes,'Man Mora Baawra..' penned by 'Janisar Akhtar'(father of 'Javed Akhtar') was indeed the first song where Kishore lip synched over voice of Mohd.Rafi,and this was because O.P.Nayyar,who was known as quite eccentric when it comes to his music,refused to make any change in his choice.
O.P.Nayyar is lone music composer of Hindi film industry who never took Lata Mangeshkar for any of his composition and despite of it he touched those heights of success where only very few composer has reached.
Later,next year again Mohd.Rafi lend his voice to Kishore for the song 'Ajab hai Daastan teri..', filmed in two parts in the movie, penned by SJ favorite 'Shailendra'.

The mention of Rafi Saheb brings back a flood of nostalgic memories. His presence was everywhere while I was growing up in India - in the movies, on the radio, tv, magazines and so forth. I especially liked his team-up with Shammi Kapoor. I still hum some of my favorite tunes such as: (1) Likkhe jo khat tujhe. (2) Ehsaan mere dil pe tumhara hai doston. And my all time favorite - (3) Hum tumse juda ho ke, mar jayenge ro ro ke.

As they say "those were the days ..."
