The Trinity of Saigal ~ Surendra ~ Ashok Kumar emerged and ruled the rostrum, melting the frozen turbulence and fluttering temperaments of the audience thirsting for freedom and a flight of fancy!
The Trinity turned the turnstile with their naturally gifted vocals! The 17 years of political upheavals from 1931 to 1947 gave a profound thrust to the nationalist upsurge.
The Trinity cut through the clutter to give some soulful outpouring which stirred and urged the entire nation to wake up from the slumber and forge ahead triumphantly.
It is in this background, Keep Alive attempts to recreate the musical magic of an era as distant as a dream and as remote as a reality.
SAGAR SAWARKAR will breathe new life into the timeless tuneful treasure of the Trinity with the able support of ANUPAMA ROY in the romantic duets.
Am reminded of Dr. Iqbal’s iconic quote:
हज़ारों साल नरगिस अपनी बेनूरी पे रोती है
बड़ी मुश्किल से होता है चमन में दीदावर पैदा!
This programme of vintage value suffers from the same plight of the Narcissus Poeticus (a poet’s Daffodil) ethnically called as ‘Nargis’ which blooms once in a blu moon!! The pain and pathos of the ‘Nargis’ flower, inviting gaze of the connoisseur for at least a few seconds, bears an obvious testimony to this very purposeful and passionate programme.
I, for one, would genuinely invoke the innermost chord of MI audience to come and witness this rare experience.
Join the journey to an era called VintAGE which will never AGE!!
