Advertising Club COO Bipin Pandit’s musical evening IP Khumaar was hosted to a packed auditorium in Mumbai’s Bandra on Saturday, November 4, 2023, and as always, the who’s who of adland were in attendance.
We asked a handful of them for their experience on the musical intoxication.
Nothing more musical
There is nothing more musical than Bipin’s Khumaar. He and the amazing talent he assembles give wings to our minds, flight to our imaginations, and makes every single one of us part of the evening, year after year.

Must-see show for Bollywood music lovers
Loved the show ‘Khumaar.’ What a treat! It was a talent-packed, entertainment-packed, and fun-packed show. The singers were absolutely fantastic! Bipin’s engaging presentation, combined with humour and shayari, was great fun. I have to say, the tagline for the program, ‘Khumar nahi dekha to kya dekha!’ is perfectly apt. It’s a must-see show for Bollywood music lovers.

‘Showman ka showman’
What a show!! It was brilliant! Loved the way Bipin offered Khumaar as a platform to showcase a wide range of singing talent. It was non-stop entertainment. Bipin’s sutradhar-giri with timely sher-shayaris and one-liners were great fun. Bipin is the ‘Showman ka showman’!! He and his merry makers kept us glued and grooving to the music while giving us a memorable evening. More power to Bipin and Khumaar!

Always amazed by the energy Bipin brings
I have been attending for a long time and am always amazed by the energy Bipin brings. While the singers are fabulous, especially with the talent hunt he does to introduce new singers, the high point is always Bipin’s anchoring which has new stories every time.

A new experience
Bipin Pandit had been nurturing the Khumaar musical experience for many years. Not only does he put together a good team of musicians but he also injects new elements in every show. The show on 4 November was a new experience, listening to songs not from the 60s and 70s but from the 90s. Add to this is Bipin’s irrepressible energy that is evident throughout the show and his passion for the music. Well done, Bipin.

Another electrifying experience
An amazing evening and another electrifying experience. Reliving the 90s made it more memorable with friends and the master of the show Bipin, and the super talented singers and musicians. Bravo Bipin!

Continues to stay true to its core
Khumaar continues to stay true to its core of music from the 60s till the 90s while introducing newer segments as well as newer artistes each year. This year was the celebration of the 18th year of Khumaar. Congratulations to Bipin, and I wish him a quick Silver Jubilee in no time.

It was a great pleasure for me to be at Khumaar for the first time. Khumaar ki khumaari will be forever in my heart. It was a lovely musical show organised by Bipin Pandit . The energy and excitement of the singers and musicians was amazing. Will love to come again, whenever Khumaar is organised next year. It was also a delightful moment for me to meet my friends Janardan Pandey, Manish Gupta and Suresh Krishnan at the show.
Love you Khumaar. Thank you Bipin Pandit .
