Amit Kumar

Amit Kumar Ganguly is an Indian playback singer, actor, music composer.  He has sung many Bollywood and regional film songs since the 1970s, including 170 Hindi compositions by R.D. Burman, and was actively singing in Indian films from 1970 to 1994. After Burman’s death in 1994, citing a lack of quality music composition, Kumar withdrew from playback singing and concentrated on live orchestra shows.

In 1990, the song “Sanam Mere Sanam” of Hum is notable. Baaghi: A Rebel for Love had a smash hit in the song “Kaisa Lagta Hai”. From the film Ghayal, the song “Pyaar tum mujhase” was popular. In this decade, Kumar had notable songs in films such as SailaabPolice PublicAaj Ka Arjun100 DaysAwwal NumberChaalBaaz, Khel, VishwatmaHoneymoonAaj Ka Goonda RaajGurudevBade Miyan Chote Miyan and Judaai and also had hit songs in the films which flopped at the box office, such as Jawani ZindabadAfsana Pyar KaIndrajeetSangdil SanamJaagrutiDeewana Mujhsa Nahin and Suryavanshi.

Kumar enjoyed a special work relationship, in addition to R.D. Burman and Bappi Lahiri, with the music duo Anand-Milind, who heavily promoted Kumar in the early 1990s. Their collaborations include Baaghi: A Rebel for LoveMera Pati Sirf Mera HainMaha-SangramSwargAnjaane RishteyTalaashiSangdil SanamYaad Rakhegi DuniyaWoh Phir AayegiAaj Ka GundarajSanamAdharm, and Rakhwala. Anand-Milind were one of the few new-age music composers of that period who regularly recorded with Kumar, making him the voice for Salman Khan and Aamir Khan in several films. Kumar’s duets “Nazrein Milin” and “Tip Tip Baarish” with Asha Bhosle in Afsana Pyar Ka were hit songs. His duets such as “Palkon Ke Tale” and “Mujhko Yeh Zindagi Lagti Hai” in Sailaab were hits too. Kumar gained the reputation of being a singer who belted out hit songs irrespective of the film being a commercial success or critically panned. Kumar also worked with Ram Laxman and songs such as the Lata-Amit Kumar duets “Main Jis Din Bhoola Doon” from Police Public in 1990 and “Le Le Dil” from 100 days in 1991 became popular. In 1990, Asha-Amit duets such as “Aur Suno Kya Haal” and “Baj Uthe Gunghroo” from Chor Pe Mor and Asha-Amit duets such as “Main Khule Aam Khedun” and “Main Na Jhoot” from Indrajeet in 1991 became popular. In 1992, the Lata-Amit Kumar duet “Adhi Raat Ko” from Parampara, composed by Shiv-Hari and Asha-Amit duets such as “Rimjhim Rimjhim Barse” and “Jo Aap Aye” from Jhooti Shaan were huge hits. Amit delivered more even in 1993, with Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. The songs “Deewana Dil Deewana” and “Sachhi Yeh Kahani Hai” became famous.

Amit Kumar also collaborated with another fresh talent from the 1990s, Jatin Lalit, who had Amit Kumar croon numbers in several films such as Paandav (1995), Silsila Hai Pyar KaKabhi Haan Kabhi Naa and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…. He even worked with Ilaiyaraaja for the song “Yeh Gulabi Shaam Ka Nasha”, a duet with Asha from the film Mera Farz (1988). In 1996, his duet with Asha Bhosle in the film Sapoot – “Kajal Kajal Teri Ankhon Ka”, composed by Anu Malik became popular.
