Looking at the title of the song, most people are justified if they exclaim-”What ! This song was not yet covered !!”. My excuse is the same old one. All these days I was under the impression that this song was already covered long back.

A romantic song in the garden, with the hero and heroine moving between the flowers and around the trees, has been almost a fixture in the formula of social drama movies, almost from the word go. A difference that one can point out that in 30s and 40s, for such songs, the lead pair would be more sober with their movements, and probably be singing with very little movements. This changed in the 50s and 60s, when dancing, running and chasing each other became important elements of picturization of such songs.

Yesterday, Shamshad Begum hit a double century on this blog. That reminded me that I had missed writing an article on her on the occasion of her 93rd birth day on April 14th. Her songs of 40s, 50s and 60s are still remembered and some of them have reappeared in the guise of remix songs. At 93, she is the senior most playback singer amidst us. Manna Dey, the next senior most playback singer is 16 days younger to her.

“Mukhda” (1951) is an obscure movie by now. It was a Shorey Pictures presentation. It was produced and directed by Roop K Shorey. The movie had Satish, Kuldip Kaur, Majnu, Neeta, Siddiqui, Kukku etc in it. I am surprised to note that the name of Meena Shorey, the wife of Roop K Shorey does not figure in the list of actors. The list of actors in the starcast could well be only partial.
