Key Features of R. D. Burman -The Man, The Music (English)

  • Language: English
  • Binding: Paperback
  • Publisher: Harpercollins Publishers India

R. D. Burman -The Man, The Music (English) (Paperback, Bhattacharjee Anirudha Vittal Balaji) Price: Rs. 307

To a nation fed on classical music, the advent of Rahul Dev Burman with his repertoire of Western beats was a godsend. RD revolutionized Hindi film music in the 1970s, and with his emphasis on rhythm and beats, this Pied Piper of Hindi film music had young India swinging to his tunes. At the same time, this genius proved his many detractors who criticized him for corrupting popular taste wrong by composing some of the most influential raga-based songs in Hindi cinema and showing an immense comfort with all kinds of music, including Indian folk. RD: The Man, The Music looks at the phenomenon called R.D. Burman and how he changed the way Indians perceived Hindi film music. Through anecdotes and trivia that went into the making of Pancham’s music – the many innovations he introduced, like mixed rhythm patterns, piquant chords and sound mixing – and through interactions with the musicians who were part of RD’s team, the authors create a fascinating portrait of a man who, through his music, continues to thrive, even fifteen years after his death.

About The Author

He has contributed articles to a number of Indian newspapers and periodicals and is also the author of a book of lists on Amitabh Bachchan. Anirudha lives in Kolkata.

A Multi-layered Look at RD Burman

I bought this book a little reluctantly - not sure about the manner in which the authors would have approached RD Burman - the person as also his music.

However, the book was sheer delight - the way it is presented it captures lovingly the various times in the life of Pancham (as RD Burman was fondly called by his near and dear ones) or Boss (as his close-knit team of musicians and arrangers used to address him).

Some anecdotes are well-known while the behind-the-scenes action is warmly documented providing insights into the creative elements of the movie-makers in general and zany aspects o

Brilliant Effort...

If you are an RD Burman fan - this book is a must have. If you are not - you will become one before you hit the last page.....

The authors have managed to recreate the era , the times in which RD lived and have delved deep into the influences that shaped his music. From the tentative beginning in Chote Nawab to the seemingly effortless flamboyance displayed in iconic movies like Yaadon Ki Baraat & Hare Rama Hare Krishna to the ever-fresh music of 1942 - A love stroy, RD's journey has been beautifully captured.

The authors have not deviated from what they set out to do and that is to tell an

Really insightful!!!!

My nephew wanted this book, so he asked me to get it for him. I bought the book and thought, before I give it to him, why not flip through its pages. I started, and I must say, could not stop until I was done with this. My nephew, as usual, was angry with me, but later when I explained to him he simply said, "so uncle you see, us, the new generation do know how to pay respect...."

Indeed they know that, and this book is a fantastic example of it. This book is must read if you are a music buff. If you are not, then also you can read it, without feeling bored. Personally, I have no musical

Ecstatic Tuff - out from passion

Needless to mention that being a fan of his great legend and his mindboggling music itself make me excited manifold times and as an icing on the cake , this book serves as a perfect write up about the legend himself and more so about his music. I ‘d confess to know both the writers personally and too well and had an inkling what to come from them through this magnificent book about all our common passion , the phenomenon – R D Burman still I was more then surprised to read the contents and the way of expressive writings that made me salute to both the geniuses for the way they have conceived

One of the best books on Bollywood Music. Excellent writing with details of the most famous and not so popular numbers composed by RD. Enjoyed reading it. OK there are couple of points though which was not so palatable to me. One the continuous refrain in the book of trying to say SD Burmans music had a lot of work by RD. Second the deliberate playing up of Kisore compared to Rafi was most unnecessary. Like saying Rafi had difficulty singing O Haseena.. Well except for these the book is a great read...

Amazing work of research

This book is an intensely researched book, the inspiration for which is one single person. A must read even for people who are not into the technically finer points of music, yet it beautifully describes the journey of this man. Also one gets an insight into the film and music cultures of the times. Strangely enough, it has not taken inputs from Asha Bhosle who could probably given more insights into the talents of this man. Overall, a balanced book by a couple of erudite worshippers of the man and his music.
