Bhupinder Singh is known for melodies like Dil Dhoondta Hai, Naam Gum Jaayega, Ek Akela Is Shaher Mein, Beeti Na Beetai Raina, Huzoor Is Kadar bhi na Itra ke Chaliye, Kisi Nazar Ko Tera Intezar Aaj Bhi Hai, Baadalon Se Kaat Ke among others.
Dil dhoondhta hai phir wohi, fursat ke raat clamor; baithe rahe tasavvur-e-jaana kiye huye
(Yet again the heart’s attempting to recuperate those relaxed days and evenings/Simply sitting, thinking and longing for the darling)
One of Gulzar’s most important love tunes owes an incredible arrangement to Mirza Ghalib, whose couplet shapes the primary line of the melody. Gulzar supplanted the word ‘Jee’ with ‘Dil’ and extended the couplet with melodious aptitude, while Madan Mohan created it in the honeyed Raag Keervani.
Inside this close ideal blend of verse and tune was Bhupinder Singh’s marginally slow, drowsy voice that moves only two or three seconds behind the idea. It was a novel articulation, not the caring one had heard from male playback vocalists of the time.
Dr Deepak Namjoshi, chief, Criticare Asia Medical clinic, said, “His condition deteriorated on Monday morning and we needed to put him on a ventilator. He got a heart failure and kicked the bucket at 7.45 pm.”
Brought into the world in Amritsar, Singh experienced childhood in Delhi’s West Patel Nagar.
He started his vocation with All India Radio, Delhi, and Doordarshan. It was at a social gathering in Delhi that Madan Mohan heard Singh and requested that he take a shot in the realm of film music. He offered Singh his most memorable reprieve with Mohammad Rafi, Nourishment Dey and Talat Mahmood in ‘Haqeeqat’. The melody was ‘Hoke majboor mujhe’, which tracked down very some consideration.
He followed it with others, for example, Do diwane shahar mein, Naam gum jayega, Karoge yaad to, Meethe bol bole, Kisi nazar ko tera intezaar aaj bhi, and Ek akela is shehar mein, Kisi ko mukammal, among others.
