The best version of this song.
elveen kumar on June 04, 2010
kishore kumar has this sensational charm in his voice that makes you wana
hear his song everytime it is played. so amazing
HJKHLI on June 06, 2010
clearly it is visible that rafi superseded kishore in all respects

this is one song which i sang for my beloved seema when she was leaving
yaanai on July 12, 2010
who is this actor? Thanks, - gg
yaanai on July 12, 2010
Yes, I thought so tgoo, but then felt couldn't possibly be so because he is
so young in this. I had seen him many years ago with Madhubala in Barsat Ki
Raat? Amazing indeed and thanks!
ProfessorNimal on July 23, 2010
Can someone tell me who the actor is here. I think the actress is Nirupa
Roy. Thanks
Mahagedara2 on July 23, 2010
@ProfessorNimal - Actor is Bharat Bhushan.
Your user name looks like a SrI Lankan name. If That is so, Bharat Bhushan was the main actor in Angulimala.
Thank you.
TIRYAKOUN on July 31, 2010
Good job. Each version is amazing. Shukriya.
Abhijit Dubashi on August 22, 2010
People, stop comparing! Rafi seems to sing it in a more sophisticated way
because Shashi Kapoor is an educated city guy. Kishore seems to sing it in
a more free and rustic manner to match Bharat Bhushan's character in the
movie. Rafi & KK weren't supposed to sing it exactly like each other,
because the characters/personality of the actors in the movie aren't the
Abhijit Dubashi on August 22, 2010
Besides, just because one singer appears to sing it better than the other
doesn't mean they are better. Some songs are suited to specific singers.
indiguj on August 25, 2010

frankly Kishores voice is a ringing freshness and not a straineous lengthy sometimes annoying ragas . Apart from that he was a great actor,comedian,character actor,lyricist,writters,music !!! endless achievements. Such personalities are rare.
Chetan Bhavsar on September 30, 2010
Well..Kishoreda Vession is the Best..what a great song
from 1960's.
zac315jutt on October 11, 2010
one thing u all must agree with is that Rafi's voice is more melodious than
Kishore's... n while rating a singer... melody is what ought to be counted
the most... so in all fairness... Rafi was better...!!!!
meghnamalhotra on October 22, 2010
kishore is jst superb ,his deep voice touches the soul,u oll must agry wid dis.
Sanam xo on January 10, 2011
It is the most beautiful song ever <3 Thxx... =)
Sanam xo on January 10, 2011
@Mahagedara2 =) Srry but are u from india?
saracen7 on January 13, 2011
rafi ? average?
I think you need your hearing tested mate
ash99 on February 02, 2011
kishore and rafi were in a different league..i like kishore's voice more.
It's only a matter of opinion and perception. There's no way of comparing
those legends though
MsHellofun on February 12, 2011
kishore is a genius , i luv both rafi and kishore but in this song kishore
is fantastic whatever the mood, no one can ever sing like kishore
pistachioguy on March 09, 2011
Wow! Glad to see and read so many Kishore fans abandon their usual shyness
and hesitance, and speak up loudly and decisively in Kishore's favor - well
done brothers and sisters! Overall, and in the song in particular, Kishore
was just on another level both in terms of voice quality and musical
Soubhik Ghosh on March 10, 2011
A song that reminds us the sweetest moment of our life

ruby neelam on April 02, 2011
best song of kishore kumar.
Ravi Terkar on April 24, 2011
This song sung by Kishore and Rafi separately, People are saying 'Aradhna'
is Kishore’s turning point as a singer, I have conducted some
per that people compared Rafi and Kishore from this song...most of the
people like ‘Kishore' da's’ voice.
lahore2vancouver on May 03, 2011
@raviterkar DEAR, Yodelling was not Rafi,s game .I been soooo
confused my Whole life which was the better .I met ManyInd0- pak singer
Particularly A. Nayyer From ...lollywood ... Manay Daey from Bollywood
.Used sdame line for Kishorda " Assi Ghambhir awaz indo pak mein Dobarra
nahee aye ghee " I think Rafi has an edge over all male singers That he has
been using " Murqies' so nicely like Lata ji in his song ..Aruna laila in
Pak used to Do ! ...
pistachioguy on May 07, 2011
To suggest that Kishore was only about "yodeling" and nothing more
demonstrates a complete lack of musical knowledge. The basic difference
between Kishore and Rafi was that Kishore had a purer tone and better voice
quality. Rafi may have been technically trained with harkats and aakars,
but that only made his singing sound needlessly complicated. What Rafi
would say in 10 notes, Kishore would say better in 3.
wtc175 on May 09, 2011
@pistachioguy WHAAT? Rafi's voice by all accounts was 'purer' than
Kishore's ever was. In musical terms Rafi's voice is nearer a 'sine'
waveform whereas Kishore's is more 'jagged tooth' (can't remember precise
term at this moment). The 'sine' is the smoother of the two. As for 'better
voice'...this is comment is purely subjective ie depends on the person
listening to it.
pistachioguy on May 09, 2011
Just checked- nowhere is it mentioned that the human voice is in "sine
wave" form- in fact, the human voice is regarded as an aggregate and
composite of several waves due to overtones and natural harmonics- nothing
in fact is in pure sine wave - not amplitude, nor frequency- in fact,
numerical analysis of voice synthesis is fraught with error- here's a
worthwhile citation- "Sine-wave speech is an intelligible synthetic
acoustic signal composed of three or four time-varying sinusoids" Remez, '81
pistachioguy on May 09, 2011
Let me reiterate, since Indians have a habit of throwing about sloppy
knowledge in place of true scholarship - pulse analysis details the various
periodic wave formations; they are 1)sine, 2) square, 3)triangle, and 4)
sawtooth waves (not "jagged tooth") due to compression and rarefaction.
Sine exists only in the absence of harmonics eg tuning fork - speech
contains overtones and harmonics. Volume, Frequency,and Timber distinguish
voice. In fact sawtooth timber includes every integer harmonic.
pistachioguy on May 09, 2011
@wtc175 - the only reason I am disinclined to say more on this topic is
because it is evident you obviously know music, and good music at that.
Your preference for musical acts as detailed in the Youtube comment history
section is most interesting and intriguing - Camel, Tangerine Dream, Gerry
and the Pacemakers, all bands I haven't listened to in ages - however they
are most certainly worthy musical acts that only people with sound musical
discrimination even know about or can comment upon.
wtc175 on May 10, 2011
@pistachioguy Not humbug . Scientific. Viewed through an oscilloscope you
can see the difference between a 'smooth voice' and a 'rough' voice. I am
not saying one is better or more pleasing than the other - but one can be
analysed as being 'purer' than the other. which is why Kishore's voice has
an 'edge' -ie grating whereas Rafi's is 'purer' . ADSR waveform dictates
how sound behaves ie 'Attack Decay Sustain Release' This is an OBJECTIVE
not SUBJECTIVE analysis. Thanks for your comments.
wtc175 on May 10, 2011
@pistachioguy Thanks again. In fact I am a musician/composer and good
friends with Chris Franke (ex Tangerine Dream and Hollywood film composer)
.If you are inclined to - have a listen to my own releases. Google 'Ashok
Prema'. I will shortly be uploading a project I did with Mangal Singh 20
years ago - modern versions fo Rafi classics.
wtc175 on May 10, 2011
@pistachioguy Heh Heh...isn't Google marvellous??? Nice to know that our
discussion has encouraged you to investigate soundforms. You probably now
know more theory than I do. :-)
wtc175 on May 10, 2011
@pistachioguy Depends on my mood...but I think I prefer Kishore's version
more than Rafi's here - but there is a 'sad version of this song by Rafi
(piano start) - the music being completely different to the happy Rafi
version. Check it out..wonderful!
pistachioguy on May 10, 2011
@wtc175 - I remember the sad version, and just listened to it - the trouble
with Rafi is, very few composers knew how to write proper music for him,
except Naushad - the peak of Rafi is achieved in Baiju Bawra (Man Tadpat
and Duniya Ke Rakhwale), along with songs like Khoya, Khoya Chanda and
Chaudhvi ka Chand, where his soft upper register is well exploited. Most of
the time Rafi end up sounding like a yell or shout. Very jarring. Kishore
may have lacked technique, but was much more musical.
pistachioguy on May 10, 2011
@pistachioguy - In plain fact, the smoothest and softest voice ought
properly to belong to Manna Dey, who for all practical purposes was light
years ahead of Rafi or anybody else - songs like Bhay Bhanjana and Sur na
Saje from Basant Bahar are impossible to sing with quite the degree of
finess Manna da brought to bear on them. Technically he was superior to
everyone else in voice quality, technique, and range. Others like Talat and
Hemant had their moments - but Kishore sets a very high bar.
pistachioguy on May 10, 2011
@pistachioguy - In fact, Kishore (as with Mukesh's "Dil Jalta Hai") began
by imitating KL Saigal note for note, in 'Marne ki Duaen" - and most
everyone will agree Saigal is unbeatable in terms of sheer range, voice
culture, and timber. The fact that Kishore could (and did, when the
occasion demanded it) sing Saigal note-perfect, itself demonstrates the
startling technical command behind his deceptively facile and simple vocal
style. Kishore believed in minimal but effective meends, unlike Rafi.
khadgawatmohit on May 28, 2011
it is a great song forever. old will be always gold.
tomdick0705harry on June 07, 2011
Rafi Saheb's version is 1000 times better than this...No doubt he is gr8,
but Rafi Saheb is immortal...
U2PusudiMan on June 09, 2011
lovly song
shanthawee on July 02, 2011
Pls listen to Rafi’s sad version and compare. You will feel the difference.
Especially the intro .
archana singh on July 03, 2011
i hear both versions ,kishor da sing very nice and excellent ,but rafi
voice is sweet than all singers ,some people feel discrimination or they
dont feel sweetness ,god gift us rafi voice ,voice doesnt follow any
religious ,i like kishor da and rafi ji both are good singers
shanthawee on July 03, 2011
There are three versions. Two versions were sung by Rafi, Happy and sad. I
was referring to the sad one, which starts with an intro “ Mere Nazarme tho
Sirfu Thum ho” , where Shashi Kapor sings while playing piano. Rafi’s intro
is superb.
