Cinema is popular all over the world. It is popular in India and in every state of India. An average Indian is fond of and can talk endlessly on three common topics- Indian Politics, Cricket and Films. He has opinions on every happening in these matters. At least, this was the case till a few years back. The points of interests might have changed for the new generation and I am blissfully ignorant about the topics that interest the new generation.

We will discuss today a song from film Daaman-51. This song happens to be one of Lata’s favourite songs and also a Milestone song in her early career, when she was getting settled in her playback singing career. I am pleasantly surprised to note that this song still remained undiscussed here so far,thus giving me the opportunity to discuss this song now.

In my childhood and growing years thereafter I was very fond of listening to songs on Radio (Transistor). Other than ‘Binaca Geetmala’, some of the programs that I regularly listened to were S. Kumar’s ka filmi mukaddama, ek hi film ke geet, etc etc.
Other than filmi songs I used to listen mainly to BBC London service for news and especially for news on ‘cricket’ (‘khel samachar’).

Now, on recalling those days, I think that I started with this love for Radio when I was 9/10 yrs old, i.e. from 1977-78. It continued up to 1986 when I bought my first mono-cassette player (Philips). TV had invaded our lives by that time and I think that our first TV- a color Uptron TV- also came in 1986-87.

Today, the 4th of August, is a day we celebrate as the birth anniversary of one of Hindi film industry’s undoubted geniuses, Kishore Kumar.

The term “genius” tends to get thrown around rather loosely and frequently nowadays, much like terms like “legend” and “great”. This is all the more reason why I am rather cautious when I use it and certainly don’t throw it around.

Having said that, I have absolutely no hesitation in using it for Kishore Kumar (or Kishoreda as he is fondly referred to by his friends and fans). Kishore da was one of those rare individuals who tried his hand at many dimensions of the industry – and left a mark with most of them. In a sense, he can be called a true harfan maula of the industry.

We in this blog celebrate all important musical landmarks that we reach. This writeup was supposed to celebrate a major landmark namely the 500th song of Naushad as a music director in this blog. It turns out that my calculation was long and Naushad had reached his 500 mark a few days ago in a writeup that I erroneously counted as 499th song for him. Nevertheless, I will use this 501th Naushad song as an opportunity to discuss the details of his songs composed during his 64 years long career.

Nightingale Noorjehan -12
—————————

Here is a tuneful duet of Noorjehan and Surendra from the 1944 ‘Bombay Cinetone’ film ‘Lal Haveli’. The other duet, by the same pair, from this film, will follow soon on this blog. (Hari ichchha permitting.) Naushad’s Guru Meer Saheb has set the tunes to the simple lyrics of Shams Lakhnavi.

एक सागर है, आवाज़ का, जिसमे डूबे ही रहने को मन करता है।

These are times to be thankful.  And to feel blessed.  That we are living in the times when this treasure of music was created.  We continue to search and explore and continue finding gems, obscure gems, unheard gems, lost gems – songs that were once created with a lot of enthusiasm and zeal.  Yes, these are times to feel blessed that these gems are available and accessible. I am really anxious about the day, and shrink away from the thought – the day when we will have no more songs of Rafi Sb to post. Life will continue, no doubt.  It has a relentlessness built into it.  But then, we will be carrying with us, an emptiness – that there are no more “unheard” songs to search for.

“Mujhko mere baad zamaana dhoonde gaa”.
“Caravaan guzar gaya gubaar dekhte rahe”.
These were words that proved to be prophetic. In the monsoon of 1980 we had to bid good bye to The Mohd. Rafi.

It has been 35 years since Mohammad Rafi left this world. Unbelievable. Our statistics page says that there are around 4845 songs sung by him in Hindi films. (Wikipedia puts a figure of around 5000). And we are past 2400 (as per the latest updation). So we still have around 2400 songs to go. That means fodder for our blog for another few years I suppose. And all the fans of Rafisaab in our Atuldom can get to work to reach out to all his songs. It is actually not that difficult a job.

On our blog we already have a film titled ‘Ustaad Pedro-1951’. There was a film titled as only ‘Pedro-1960’ which is yet to make a debut on the blog.

Today we have a song from the film ‘Ustaad Pedro’ which came in 1971. This film was passed by the censor board on 28.09.1971.
