Here is the latest Interview from HR...

On a success roll

Rajiv Vijayakar speaks with Himesh Reshammiya who has taken the Indi pop scene and film music by storm with his voice and music.

He's sensation incarnate. "The process of becoming a rock star has already begun!" declares Himesh Reshammiya. The smile may be too low-voltage for the term, but the attitude is just right, and that's what has worked big-time in his videos as well. A frayed baseball cap, a cheek adornment that can be best described as a stubble-meets-beard, a trademark jacket without which the man does not step outside his suburban duplex, and a melancholy, wistful, pain-laden expression that is studiously maintained even on celebratory occasions like his music launches or award speeches – like with his music, Himesh Reshammiya has tailored even the rock star leitmotif to a homeland that is more known for kheer than caviar.

Himesh today can afford to be magnanimous to past critics and present detractors who term him a huge bubble that will burst soon, and to those who ridicule his voice and singing abilities, calling him a lucky man in the right place filling a void in which contemporaries and music sales are floundering so badly.

"Rehman lavishly complimented Aashiq Banaya Aapne and called it the most rocking album of 2005. And T-Series tells me that Aap Ka Surroor, my first album as a composer-singer, is the biggest seller ever in Indian non-film music," crows the composer. "For over six months, I have also topped the film charts with Aashiq Banaya Aapne, Aksar and now Tom Dick And Harry. I can only thank the Almighty and my fans for this, apart from my writer Sameer and T-Series."

Move over Karunya and Sandeep, here is the new Indian Idol. At a time when music sales in physical format (as in CDs and cassettes) are plunging by the day, Himesh albums sell like hot cakes across the nation, bridging the gap, as only a few composers like Shankar Jaikishan, Laxmikant Pyarelal and R D Burman (incidentally Himesh's idols) have accomplished before, between the small-town and rural masses and the pub-hopping metro youth. And what is truly unprecedented besides his complete takeover of the charts is that this son of musician and small-time music director Vipin Reshammiya and the protg of actor Salman Khan has done it in two capacities – as music director and singer.

"My voice is taiyyar and classically trained," says Himesh. "When they wrote me off for my nasal rendition in the high octave in the title-tracks of Aashiq.. . and Aap Ka Surroor, I showed my range by doing Jhoom jhoom (Tom Dick And Harry) and my latest hit Aashiqui hai meri (36, China Town) in the middle octave and Chhed de pyar ki baat in my album in the lowest one, which were not at all nasal.'

He scoffs at the overkill theory (over 20 tracks as singer within six months when other music directors sing just a few songs every year) and says, "I must be doing something right if almost every song I have sung has become a hit. Successful albums do not just benefit me but the entire industry. In the past, the music of Kya Dil Ne Kahaa, Chura Liya Hai Tumne and Yeh Hai Jalwa did well even when the films bombed. That is because when I take up a film I only concentrate on doing my best!"

The Gods are raining fame and fortune on him in a mega-dose: how does he react to that? Is he cocksure he knows the public pulse, insecure of whether he may fall soon, or doubly motivated?

The music maker ponders for a few seconds and replies, "The only thing I am sure about the public is that they want something new every few weeks, not every few years as it was earlier. You are only as good as your last release, and so I intend to keep bringing changes fast – before I lose my audience. At the same time, I cannot afford to think of my recent successes when I am making music, but must keep doing my best. Music is one field where the more you work the better you are – the great music makers of yesterday did their best work in their busiest phase."

He adds, "I have made it a practice to compose two to three good melodies every day. That sounds impossible but it happens on most days and I can only thank divine intervention for that."

He presents a footnote: "But what I will always maintain, irrespective of whether I am experimenting with different sound, styles or packaging is the solid core of Indian melody. All my hits have had the base of Indian raags regardless of their beats, which is why every kind of listener has liked them. The melody must be strong and must dominate over the orchestration."

How confident is he of sustaining, which is where most sensations fizzle out? "I have always opened my cards slowly," he declares. "I composed my first melody as a kid. I produced TV serials from my own stories (like Andaz) wherein I tested my tunes on the masses as their title-songs. Then Salman bhai gave me the break he had promised with one song in Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya. Branded as a traditional melodist in my first few films, I showed my youthful shade with Mohabbat hai mirchi (Chura Liyaa Hai Tumne), gave raag-based melodies in Tere Naam (the biggest-selling film soundtrack in the last five years), a Sufi-rock blend in Aashiq Banaya Aapne and the Banaras gharana style in Banaras – A Mystic Love Story. There are so many cards to go!" For Himesh, success has never been a gamble. It's about having the right tricks up the sleeve.

Meet Kabul's favourite bahu

Shreevatsa Nevatia

Kabul, May 8, 2006

Every evening at 8.30 life in much of the Afghan capital is suspended for half an hour. Children take a break from homework, their parents and grandparents from the daily grind as Kabul follows the trials and tribulations of its favourite daughter-in-law, Tulsi Mihir Virani.

It would be an understatement to say that Kyonki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi is a rage in Afghanistan. Tolo TV, a local Afghani channel, has bought the rights and telecasts a dubbed version of the Ekta Kapoor production daily.

Abdul, a local doctor, says, "You will hardly find anyone going out of their houses at that time. Everyone here -- from children to women to the aged -- knows who Tulsi and Mihir are."

And Abdul does not seem to be off the mark. Twenty five people, who were questioned in an impromptu survey, claimed to religiously follow the ups and downs of the Virani khaandan. Local observer Noor Rahman Rahmani explains this trend: "The kind of things that the serial shows is very similar to what goes on in our homes. Mother and daughter-in-laws quarrelling with each other, it is a daily occurrence here."

At a recent wedding Rahmani attended the music was turned off and the food put away at 8:30 pm so that guests could find the nearest television and get their daily dose of their favourite family saga.

And Kyunki is not the only 'K' product that has become popular in these parts. With cable TV entering many a home, people here have access to channels such as Zee TV and Star Plus. Most families are hooked on to shows such as Kasauti Zindagi Ki, Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki and Kaavyanjali.

There are more reasons for any Indian to feel at home in Kabul. The latest Himesh Reshammiya chartbusters are used as ring-tones. Every third song played on local radio stations is a Bollywood number. Most cinemas here only offer Hindi flicks to their customers and even Afghani channels broadcast at least two to three Bollywood films a day.,0035.htm

woow tats gr8 ...himeshji a fave even in Kabul...ClapClapClap
