I grew up in 90s listening to some fantastic romantic bollywood songs and there was one person who dominated bollywood music scene was kumar sanu.
He sung for films like aashiquee saajan,dewana,1942 a love story,sadak,pardes,raja hindustani and many more. He won five filmfare awards in a row between 1991/96 which is a record.He was given bollywood star of the decade award in 2000.He features in seven of top ten best selling bollywood music albums of all time.

Are there any kumar sanu fans on this site?This thread is to discuss his song and genera chit chat about bollywood music.
 
Absolutely brilliant singer.

I'd love to watch him and Alka Yagnik in concert together, but I havent heard of any concerts n the UK for years by these 2 artists.
 
i can recall he won the best singer award for so many years in running and then withdrew himself from upcoming awards for good to give youngsters a chance.

i have been looking for one song of him but i never found anywhere if someone can help me find that song even movie name will work for me

Swarg mein milay gee Apsara mujhay yakeen hay
lekin apnay gaoon ki gori bhi too haseen hay
husn ka deedar kiya kya bura kiya
kisi ko jo pyar kiya kya bua kiya

I know this song but can't remember the film but will find out for you.
 
I have been looking for a song from mid 90s from a film called anjaane
Hue hain kuch aise woh hum se paraae
Ke jaise kisi se khuda rooth jaaay.
 
the only kumar sanu song i know is 'ek ladki ko dekha'.Any other good ones out there ? Forgive my ignorance.

Tujhe Dekha
from DDLJ is also a memorable track
 
One of the great singers of the 90s - some memorable songs from films like DDLJ, Baazigar, Aashiqui, Saajan and many others.
 
Excellent singer.

Does anyone know what happened to him? Did he just retire or something?
 
Aatish and Imtihan are 2 other films where he has sung some top tunes.
 
oops :p

that site is really good though, hope you can find it...otherwise Youtube Zindabad
 
Udit Naryan is another great I love listening to. Both are neck and neck for me, I don't know what others feel.

It was his decision to take a break from singing in 96 when people like udit got a chance to relaunch their career combined with the emergence of A R Rehman as a music director cost him but he made a come back late 90s to sing teri chunarya,apka aana, aankhon ki gustakhian,kisi se tum pyar karo among others.
But bollywood music took a turn for worse in 2005 when himesh reshamya had a hit ashiq banaya aapne. And everyone started doing similar kind of music.
 
lol, that was great, thanks for sharing Rexy

Udit is a class singer who over long run is slightly better the KS but thing that sets sanu apart is that at his peak the way he dominated bollywood singing scene was unprecedented.Udit is good at singing but when it comes to emotions sanu is streets ahead.
Both are suffering from new western type change to bollywood music.

Yeah I hate the new Western Bollywood mix pop songs - no soul or emotion in them at all.
I agree it's probably fair to say they both had different strengths.
 
Ahmed Zulfiqar said:
someone was wondering what happened to Kumar's career :p
This has nothing to do with atif aslam or another singer for that matter.The main reason for kumar sanu and udits decline was western trend in bollywood.
 
exactly, what I meant by that is that the new trend has changed Bollywood music, and has their kind of music rarer and pretty much redundant now

Kumar Sanu is a great singer though I find Udit Narayan better...
Same here except that I didn' find Sanu a great singer,copies Kishore kumar,Nasal,shaking voice while singing though sang some good tunes in 90s.

Anyone who sings for R D burman, kalyanji anandji,laxmikant pyarelal and naushad and has some of the the best selling albums of all time must have some talent.
If copying Kishore or rafi was a way to success then we would have had 50 kumar sanus .
Like I said before udit is probably a singer over long run but KS was a force who blew everyone away in 90s.
 
PakPassionate said:
Why he is not singing anymore for Hindi Movies?
Bollywood music has a western trend now and new music does not sell because of piracy so they don't pay top dollars for singer like udit and KS. Plus now there is more emphasis on video then the song itself.
 
^^ also new talents like Mohit Chauhan and Javed Ali have made their space, even with the more 'traditional' kind of Bollywood songs

He was successful in 90s,I agree that.I am not a fan of his style,thats all.

Well that your personal opinion and I respect that.Its just when people say KS had no talent and just by following Kishore style he got all his success I can't help but respond.
 
Huge fan of Kumar Sanugakarra. Bit disappointed in his captaincy though

Do you listen to any kind of music? or no music at all?

I love 80s music.

And Pak music from late 80s to current.

Thats it really.

kool, As long as you listen music thats fine. each person has their own unique taste.
 
Oxy bhai kumar sanu was a superstar long before kumar sangakara and was voted artist of the decade beating people like SRK and A R Rehman.
 
kumar sanu's predicament kinda reminds me of that bachchan film "abhimaan" in which bachchan plays a sucessful playback singer, whose secretary is constantly turning down offers from music directors and then his fortunes change(in that case his wife is in more demand) and suddenly bachchan can't get a song to sing for love or money. I suspect mr sanu's secretary doesnt take too many calls these days.

personally, i was a big fan, loved his songs thru the 90s
 
True guy was arrogant and didn't respect people in the film industry and spoke his mind hence his misunderstanding with A R Rehman but it was his decision to leave bombay for calcutta to try his hand at acting which gave people like udit and sonu nigam a chance establish themselves. And around that time Nadeem fled the country as he was accursed of gulshan kumars murder and sanu suffered.
But he made a come back to sing for hum dil de chuke sanam andaaz humraz barsaat Ek rishta and many more but since 05 music trend has changed and music directors go for cheap young options but kumar sanu dominated seven of top ten best selling albums.

Is Kumar Sanu the guy who sang "Bas ek sanam chahiye"

Can you name few of his songs?
 
Yes mate that was from ashiquee 1990.
Here are some of his super hits.
Ab tere bin jee - ashiquee
Deere deere se mere dil ko- ashiquee
Mera dil bi kitna pagal- saajan.
Jye to jye kaisey bin apke- saajan
Dil hai key manta nahi- title song
Tu pyar hai kisi aur ka - D H K M N.
Teri umeed tera intezaar- Deewana.
Sochain ge tumain pyar - Deewana.
Tere dard se dil abad raha- Deewana .
Tumain apna banane ki kasam- sadak
Ye kali kali ankhain - Bazigar
Bazigar Bazigar - title song.
Saathi tera pyar pooja hai- isaanyat.
Ek ladki ko dekha toh- 1942 A Lovestory.
Kuch na kaho - abov.
Tujhe dekha to Yeh jaana sanam- Dilwale D L J G.
Kitna haseen chehra- Dilwale.
Jeeta tha jis ke liye - Dilwale
Tere dar per sanam - phir teri kahani yaad aai.
Dil main sanam ki surat - above.
Pardesi pardesi - Raja hindustani.
Tu mile dil khile- Criminal
Rah main unse- vijaypath.
Chura ke dil mera - tu khilari main anari.
Agar zindagi ho tere sang ho- Balmaa
Aaine ke so tukde - maa.
Jo pyar ker gai woh log aur the- junoon.

Some more to follow later as I am too tired at this time of night.
 
90's was a unique era, which will never come back. Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik were great, they both dominated hindi music for many years. I sometimes miss 90's even though I was a kid at that time but it was a great era to live in.

Nowadays, music is westernized, crap lyrics, no romantic songs, naked girls, family can't view a song together let alone the whole film. Everything related to entertainment has gone downhill since 2000.
