Mukesh and his Composers – 8
————————————–
It was on 27th August 1976 in faraway Detroit city of US that Mukesh breathed his last after suffering a massive heart attack. He was there with Lata Mangeshkar and his son Nitin Mukesh for live performances in a few US cities. It was the 7th or 8th out of 10 performances to be performed.

A career which started in 1940 with acting-singing soon settled and rightly so for playback only. In a career spanning 36 years, Mukesh sang less than a 1000 songs. However each one of these songs is a gem, in its own right.

In my post last year Mil Na saka dil ko agar pyaar tumhaare on the same date, we had seen the various roles donned by Mukesh before he finally took up play back singing alone seriously. The last entry of the table in the post was about the film titled “Anuraag” released in 1956. In this movie Mukesh was the Actor, Singer, Music Director and Producer.

Continuing this series on “Mukesh and his Composers”, we shall have a look at all the songs that Mukesh sang and composed himself. Anuraag was in fact the first and last film that he composed for. Apart from two solos on himself, he also accommodated Shamshad Begam, Lata Mangeshkar, and Manna Dey etc for playback in this film.

Mukesh is one of the few singers whose NFS are as famous as his film songs. In the NFS category he composed five of his songs himself. Below is the table of the film and NFS he sang and composed himself.

In compiling the table, it goes without saying that I again received prompt help from Shri Harish ji who was also kind enough to share the lyrics in Hindi of today’s song. I was unaware that the last song on Pandit Nehru was also composed by Mukesh.

S.No Song Lyricist Movie
1 Kise yaad rakhoon kise bhool jaaun Kaif Irfani Anuraag(1956)
2 Pal bhar hi ki pehchaan mein Indeewar Anuraag(1956)
3 Gayee yak bayak jo havaa Zafar NFS
4 Jiyenge magar muskura Kaif Irfani NFS
5 Diyaa apni khudi ko Zafar NFS
6 Do zulmi naina humpe Kaif Irfani NFS
7 Chacha Nehru…phool khilega Shailendra NFS

Paying tributes to the legend on the 39th year of his passing away, I present here one of Mukesh’s NFS written by Zafar and well, composed by himself.


Song-Diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita (Mukesh NFS)(1960) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Zafar, MD-Mukesh

Lyrics

Diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita
wo jo parda sa beech mein thha na raha
raha parde mein ab wo na parda nasheen
koi doosra uske siwa na raha
raha parde mein ab wo na parda nasheen
koi doosra uske siwa na raha
diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita

na thhi haal ki jab hamen apne khabar
rahe dekhte auron ke aib o hunar
na thhi haal ki jab hamen apne khabar
rahe dekhte auron ke aib o hunar
padi apni buraaiyon per jo nazar
to nigaah mein koi bura na raha
padi apni buraaiyon per jo nazar
to nigaah mein koi bura na raha
diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita

zafar aadmi usko na jaaniyega
zafar aadmi usko na jaaniyega
ho wo kaisa hi saahab e paimozkaar
jise aish mein yaad e khuda na rahi
jise taish mein khauf e khuda na raha
jise aish mein yaad e khuda na rahi
jise taish mein khauf e khuda na raha
diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita

Genius of Jaidev – 21
—————————
My last song in the ‘Genius of Jaidev’ series was posted on 6th January 2015. So it is after a gap of more than half a year that I resume the series with Asha’s song from the 1956 film ‘Samundari Daku’. Three(actually four, as ‘Dil Jawan Hai Aarzoo Jawan’, both solo by Talat and Talat-Asha duet are posted as one posting) out of six songs of this movie are already there on our blog. This one is from the remaining two solos of Asha.

I am thankful to Ava Suri who, about a month back, had suggested to me to consider presenting a NFS ghazal ‘saaqi ki har nigaah pe bal khaa ke pee gaya’ (1965) sung by Rafi. Let me confess that I had missed listening to this great ghazal of Jigar Moradabadi all these years. This request gave me an opportunity to study in detail the ghazals of Jigar Moradabadi who was considered the last icon of classical Urdu poetry. He was such an interesting personality that I am tempted to write a full length article on him for the Blog which I will do in the near future.

June 6th is Sunil Dutt’s birth anniversary. He was born in 1929, so we celebrate his 86th birthday. His debut film was Railway Platform (1955). The role of the idealist, who wants to change the society, would follow him for most part of the 50s. In 1963 he donned the role of a dacoit Thakur Jarnail Singh, which was quite unusual for the times. In fact, it was sort of an extension of his role in Mother India (1957). Dacoit roles would haunt him for the rest of his career. He did meaningful films, particularly with Chopra brothers in the 60s. His magnum opus Reshma aur Shera (1972) though left him in financial doldrums, which sent him on a film-signing spree throughout the 70s. At first it was to pay back his debts and later for the cancer treatment of his wife. He took leave of his career as a leading man after launching his son in Rocky (1981) with the film Dard Ka Rishta (1982).

He was a freedom fighter, a revolutionary, a journalist, a parliamentarian and a poet. He was associated with Indian National Congress, Communist Party of India and later Indian Muslim League. Bal Gangadhar Tilak was his mentor. He was the man behind coining the slogan ‘Inquilab Zindabad’. He was a member of Constituent Assembly for drafting the constitution of independent India. He was a devoutly muslim who made his annual pilgrimage to Mecca. But he also made it a point to visit Mathura on Krishna Janmashtmi day. He described himself as:

darwesh o inquilab maslak hai mera
Sufi Momin hoon and ishtiraaki muslim

(I have chosen a path of asceticism and revolution. I am a Sufi Momin and a socialist Muslim).

He was Maulana Hasrat Mohani.

Troika of Blog’s latest century singers – Mukesh, Rafi and Kishore Kumar : 2. Mohammed Rafi
——————————————————————————————–
With the completion of Rafi’s 2400th song , this Blog has covered nearly 50 per cent of the Hindi songs rendered by Mohammed Rafi during his active career (1948-1980). There is still a long way to go before this blog covers almost all the songs sung by him.

Last year, I had presented a pair of hamradeef ghazals of Jigar Moradabadi and Mirza Ghalib wo jo rootheen to manaana chaahiye sung by Mukesh and Talat Mehmood, respectively as a duet making them into one combined ghazal. The main features of hamradeef ghazals are that they have the same ‘qaafiya’ (rhythmic patterns), the same ‘baher’ (meter) and the same radeef (the last word in the second line of each she’r).

I had not heard the name the film “Pathan’ (1962) until I came across the songs on this Blog itself. However, I had heard two songs from this movie sung by Talat Mehmood which were popular on the radio in the 60s. One of Talat Mehmood songs chaand mera baadalon mein kho gaya has already been covered in the Blog. Not much of the information on the film is available on the internet sources other than star cast and songs. IMDB has tagged this film as family drama. The film may have been bombed at the box office and became obscure over a period of time.

Considerable effort of musicians and music arrangers, besides the sound recordist, goes into the creation of any song that finally result in the song ending up becoming hummable for public at large. Some of the great musicians and arrangers who worked ‘behind the curtain’ in creating these songs were Antony Gonsalves, Antanio Vaz (Chic Chocolate), Sebastian D’souza, Frank Fernand, Enoch Daniels, Van Shipley, Manohari Singh, Kersi Lord, Maruti Rao Keer among many others.
