I thought i should write something new than my stupid poetry!
Here is my first post!
-Hidden Poet-Copy Cat-Gifted Singer-
I heard Jannat song "Zara Se"..great song...no one can not notice it. Its sung by Kay Kay written by Sayeed Qadri and music director being Pritam.
Well pritam...infamously known as copy cat has made his presence felt to us. How did i miss kay kay? and who is this sayeed quadri? his language is quite familiar to me..so i decided to do some googleing (:) is there anything call grammatical neologism? just like Bangalored!)
Chod aye hum..of Machis good song though but i did not like it..but i missed this great singer by that time..i have never heard that song completely..some how the music was not appealing (i have not yet started complimenting pritam!) but i should congratulate vishal bharadwaj for great music like that of Satya (kallu mama), omkara (o sathi re! what a song!) and U, me aur Hum (title song..quite (:) nice)...
I like RockFord movie but not Yaaron song..again music was not catchy! well Shankar Ehsaan Loy...masters need not masterpieces everytime. :) helping my ego...well Dil Chahta Hein, Taare Zameen Par were few of masterpieces by them..
O hum dum was okay because i like the tamil version better..no comments on Rehman!
many flop songs..many i did not like..then came Tu Hi Meri Shab hai..I did not miss Kay Kay here but I missed Sayeed Qadri..well..this film was in bbc news for wrong reasons...Abu Salem having problems with that movie being based on him..what people missed for the first was how pritam improvised the song Sacral Nirvana by Oliver Shanti and gave people the voice they missed (people like me)..
well now again
then life in a metro..alvida and Oh meri jaan good ones..i did not miss it..but then he improvised oh meri jaan chorus and gave us the catchy interval chorus of Zara se..
but what i really feel bad is we identify singers at first or second go..but it took me quite a long time to get good song writer sayeed qadri..his first film what Dhat Tere ki(1983)..well i never heard it..but behold Asha bhonsle was one of the singers..He started his second life from Jism..and entry level got him a Zee Cine award for best lyricist..i some how feel that Mahesh Bhatt gave him a break (pooja bhat was the producer and it was written by Mahesh Bhatt, Saxena was the director)..so this poet has future...
well the combo of Kaykay-Pritam-Sayeed rocks!!! i look forward to this combo again...yup when u want good things..u gotta lose others..so..pritam inevitably comes with his copies..but yup..his improvisation is his own..
