It is generally the politicians who say one thing and shamelessly take an opposite stance suddenly. Now, it is Ismail Durbar, the composer of Devdas!

Here are some excerpts from his recent Hindustan Times interview (Thanks to Mr. Gopal, ARRFans for the scan):
"I call him (A.R.Rahman) Guru. He also respects me..."
"I remember he won at two different award functions; he went on to win for Taal and Saathiya. See the humility in him... he called me through lyricist Mehboob and said that I deserved both the awards (for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas). That's why I respect him"
Now for a short flashback! Read what he said in a Rediff interview:
"People have told me my work was better than Rahman's in Kisna. (ARR composed 2 songs and ID composed 8 for Kisna)"

"My work has always been better than his. Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was better than Taal. Even Devdas was better than Saathiya.
But it is destiny that he got international fame. Angrezo ne uska haath pakad liya hai toh logo ko lagta hai ke yeh kuch zyada hi hai (Foreigners encouraged him so people think he is very good).
I am not saying this because of jealousy. This is the bitter truth. Whenever my work is good and he takes the awards, I feel bad.
I wonder why people run after name and fame, and not good work. Kyunki hamare yahan bahut kum akal ke log hai (we have very few intelligent people here). We see some foreigners holding someone's hand, and he becomes a big man."
Ah!! What a jerk!

    It has to be the comedy of the year. Probably he is doing that for publicity but we know who is a mount and who is just a bunch of brittle rocks.

    About Guru's songs has anyone come across this silly, pathetic comment?

    Barso re - inspired from YSR's Sil sil mazhai from "Arindhum Ariyamalum"

    Mayya Mayya - inspired from Azhagiya Laila from "Ullathai Alli thaa"

    These people certainly deserve to be kept in ICU of NIMHANS.

    A R Rahman = Amazing human being (PS: I put this first in the equation) + Amazing music director.

    Ismail Darbar = Frustrated human being + Good music director.

    I think it's obvious whom we need to focus on in our blogs.

    the worst thing in this world is to compare oneself with another .. i wonder how one can compare himself with another .. well both mean the same ... but the sorry fact is that mr darbar .. has indeed made a durbar ( for guys who dont know DURBAR is a royal court where state matters are discussed ) abt himself not being in league with the maestro .. quite natural to be jealous.. no harm.. the harm is to make a cry and hue like a 2nd grade kid who just lost the first rank and complaining abt the guy who got the first rank ... which is exactly what our no-so-bad music composer has done ... just ignore him and his pathetic statements

  1. Sandhya Ramachandran

    This is the funniest thing I've EVER read in my life!!!

    Ismail Durbar's SUCHHHHHH a big loser!!! he's a good music director, i Don't deny! But to compare himself with ARR... thu! Shame on him!!!

    Taal was fantabulous! Happens to be one of my most fav of ARR's albums!!! In no way can it be surpassed by many of ARR's own albums! Aprom thaane ismail Darbar!

    Time n again, there have been such jerks like ID. Remember a very old episode of newstrack (which had come out when the music of gentleman had just come out) where there were many music directors who criticised Rahman as being a one movie wonder or so ...
    they must be eating their words now.
    The thing is that now, we don't even know who those dumbos were. Its so sad ....these folks ....

    @ anon:
    rightly said...

    Reg the comments that u have posted abt Guru:
    though we know that these comments have no truth in them, this does cause bad publicity...

  1. Aravind

    @ mysorean:
    He is a good music director, but his big mouth has cost him a lot i think... he is totally out of news after this interview :)

  1. Aravind

    @ anon2:
    The funniest part in the interview is that that he says, he said all that not because of jealousy!!

  1. Aravind

    @ sandhya:
    Taal is one of my favs too!!
    Luv all songs!

  1. Aravind

    @ ani:

    one movie wonder?? ha ha ha!!!

  1. Adiya

    ha ha ha. its a comedy of year and usual North-indian idiocrazy even though bollywood is running on the wheels of southindian players.

    other wise ID is also a good music director no doubt. but his crazyness making him down and further down.

    what kinda crap is many albums does darbar have anyway to his comparison here......

  1. Anonymous

    No doubtedly, he is the best of best music director India has found in the twentieth century but Ismail, is also
    a good director but to compare himself with someone who has given many hit over the years through many Movies and albums is like comparing Elephant and an ant over a "who is big ?" question.
    I have found many Ismail's song as more of Indian than of western which I like very much........But Rahman's work has ranged from very Indian to superb mix of Arabic/Indians/western music and it is Rahman's versatility which has kept him still as the Crowds Fav. When Ismail Darbar could range upto the albums of Rahman ....then maybe he could try comparing himself with Rahman....but what he has done right now, shows that he is jealousy all around and can not withsand a healthy competition

    hi... ismail is not as versatile as AR Rahman but devdas and Hum dil de chuke sanam are really above any of rahman's work... I'm not indian but ismail is the one's who's really doing something to preserve india's musical identity... even if he's a big mouth!

    Ismail Darbar - He is a worthless piece of shit, who is not even worth composing for B grade movies. Real talents never boast abt their work. Like AR Rahman - who is a true legend and is very humble.

    His name is actually supposed to be Ismail Dumbass. One of the most irritating and worthless piece of shit in Music industry.

  1. Njan

    Ismail Darbar communicates with more clarity in his compositions (HDDCS/Devdas) than AR Rahman. I feel that AR Rahman's songs are blunt at times!
    What is wrong in Ismail Darbar talking his mind out? He is being true to himself. Lets take good in him and learn from it, rather than cribbing about his talk.

    Hi there!
    I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
    I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
    Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

    Good day, sun shines!
    There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
    I have never thought that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
    Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
    It's all about how to choose a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

    You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
