The song, Le chalo, was released by GigDad Music in April 2012.
This song was originally composed by Kishore Kumar for the movie Suhana Geet (1959) and has been recreated in a hilarious way by Amit Kumar. He has rendered the song in the different singing styles and expressions of his father.
Song – Le chalo
The song Le chalo has been fantastically penned by Leena Chandavarkar Ganguly, Kishore Kumar’s wife. The tune is set by Kishore Kumar and recreated for our benefit by Amit Kumar.
The man introduces the song as the one his father had composed for a movie in the 1950s and sings it is a funny way.
Video – Le chalo
The cinematography is by Guru Dhanoa.
The video opens with Amit Kumar beginning the song in front of a mike. The next shot has 2 video-collages. On the left, Amit Kumar is singing and on the right there is an old clipping of Kishore Kumar performing a song from one of his movies. 2 striking things about the song are that Amit Kumar uses vocal gymnastics to sing the way his father did and has taken inspiration from several of his father’s songs.
The song has been sung by Amit Kumar for himself.
This song depicts the journey from Mumbai to Khandwa. Kishore Kumar is originally from Khandwa. The original song had a folk tune and Amit Kumar has enhanced it to make it funny. I love the way Amit Kumar has imitated his father. 🙂 The song and the artists are good. The video is watchable for the same.
