Thank you for your views. Yes, it was a comical irritation in the roudra rasa genre, and you could catch it correctly. It is a argumentative situation, the husband is blaming his wife suspecting her character and she is giving explanation, in the end he shouts loudly, you might have heard, the shouting is by ghantasala himself, you would have noticed in the song.
Ketaki gulab juhi, a nice song, sure stalwart pandit ji is too difficult to be surpassed by anyone. The situation was same in basant bahar, similar to padosan, i.e Manna dey was shown to win because he sang for the lead role, despite the other singer (pandit ji) being supreme, much similar to ek chatur naar, kishore was made to win, because he sang for hero despite manna dey being a more capable singer in the classical range. In fact, I was given to understand in basant bahar that manna dey ran away from the studio when he was informed that he has to sing with pandit bhimsen joshi ji, manna humbly claimed that he was no match for the giant pandit ji, but pandit ji had a talk with manna de and got convinced him to sing the song. Manna did very well in ketaki gulab juhi (of course, no comparison for the stupendous talent of pandit ji), but as a musician, I can easily say for sure that the composition was conveniently made for Manna in a way that gives a beautiful attraction, of course, I am sure, manna's rendition can be easily rendered by pandit ji and not vice versa - sure.
A discussion on hindola raga of carnatic which is the malkauns of hindusthani. You might have heard rafi's man tarpat hari darshan ko, in this raga, of course, it was not a fast type rendition but nicely composed balanced rendition nicely sung by mohd. rafi.
Here are two renditions in hindola raga by ghantasala - hope you will enjoy the same. http://www.dishant.com/jukebox.php?songid=35584http://www.chitramala.com/audio-songs/pop_new.php?sid=4978&wid=736
(composed by himself)
You will note the majestic punch in the songs.
An introduction to padyam - unique genre of telugu film industry.
A padyam is a rendition which is a song form in the dramatic style of genre and is unique to telugu language. Ghantasala was too unique and special in this genre, and undoubtedly the greatest among all singers who rendered this genre in films. Padyam which was originally sung only on stage drama earlier , was brought into the hearts of all people in a widely recognised and appreciated way by the only ghantasala through films, due to his special unique skills in this genre. Most of the padyams are sung in mythological films, for which area the telugu industry is considered as unique and mythological films from telugu industry are considered as the greatest in the indian film industry.
A padyam by ghantasala for you :http://www.dishant.com/jukebox.php?songid=37415
What do you say on raga/taans rendered by ghantasala - He has a special style on his own, which is believed to be unsurpassable.
An achievement of the telugu industry. Mayabazar is a black and white evergreen film based on the characters of Mahabharata, made in 1957 with the leading stalwarts of the telugu industry playing major roles in the film, has been released on Jan. 30. 2010, in Andhra Pradesh (as well in US ) - remade in digital colour technology (like mughal e azam and naya daur). The film is running packed houses even now and is going to complete 100 days on May 10, 2010. The music is scored by ghantasala for the film. You might have heard a comedy song of ghantasala from this film i.e. sundari nee vanti devya swaroopamu.. that has been the influence of Mayabazar and ghantasala as well on the telugu industry, which continues...
