Zindagi Ek Safar - Kishore Kumar (1989) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Biographical / Documentary)
31 Dec,2009 | Movies To See Before You Die / Documentary

For lovers of Indian Cinema and its melodious film music from the Golden Era, here comes the much awaited rare piece of creative work, recently released in the DVD format. It is the one and only video documentary made in 1989, on the happening life of the most versatile musical phenomenon called Kishore Kumar. Directed by Sandip Ray (son of the renowned film-maker, Satyajit Ray), the movie talks about Kishore Da’s lesser known childhood, his energetic career as an actor and his incomparable contribution as a singer along with famous clips of his uncountable melodious songs which are still cherished by hindi film music lovers living all over the world.

Intelligently compiled by Sandip, the movie not only showcases the brighter side of Kishore Da’s persona but also talks about the grey shades of his identity, which were sadly publicised in the media as an eccentric behavior towards insanity. Ironically, Kishore da himself talks about it with Lata Mangeshkar in an interview featured in the documentary. Exploring different phases in the life and career of Kishore Da, as an actor, producer, director, singer, composer and lyricist, the movie smartly makes us familiar with the real truth behind many famous myths about him.
 
However, the only missing point in the movie according to me was to avoid the era in which there was a healthy competition seen between Mohd. Rafi and Kishore Da. The narration completely skips this particular part of his career, when R. D. Burman was rising towards the peak and along with him few other music directors also started preferring Kishore Da to sing for their films. Apart from this it’s a brilliant piece of documentation in which so many famous personalities are brought together to talk about their favorite singer and actor ranging from the veteran Dada Muni (Ashok Kumar), Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan to the voice of the current generation, Shaan.
 
A must watch for all who love Kishore Kumar and his multitalented career of an immensely creative personality. (The DVD has been released by Moser Baer Home Video and should be easily available at all leading stores.)
 
Directed by Sandip Ray
Starring : Kishore Kumar and most of the Indian Film Industry's stalwarts.

where can i get this dvd now???? i had check the moserbaer web site, but it is not available now. can u advice me on this matter as i am a die hard fan of kishore kumar.

Bobby Sing

Hi Sanjith,

Sorry to hear that. But In this case I suppose the only way left is to ask your local vendors to search a copy from any of their dealers. Someone may have it in his stock lying in the godown. 

And I really hope you get to watch it soon.

Cheers!

sanjith raja

So the mosear baer will not release the dvd or vcd any more?????

Bobby Sing

I cant say but the non-availability of the Documentary may be due to two reasons :

1. On the positive side, May be their whole lot is sold out and they would soon be coming with the new lot in the market.

2. And on the negative side their right for the movie may have got expired.

Whereas I seriously hope that its the first case with Moserbaer and the DVD is soon available in the market for all Kishore Kumar Fans.

So lets be hopeful......Cheers!
