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

Today’s song is a special song-for me, because it is not only composed by one of my favourite composers, but it is also sung by him, as a duet with Shamshad Begum, in the film Hamaari Shaan-1951. Chitragupta is the composer / singer of this song.

In my opinion, out of all the composers ( including my favourite C. Ramchandra), these were the only 4 composers, whose compositions, I personally found very melodious in about 90% times. This is a very high percentage for melody, which not every composer can boast of ! These composers are….

Composer period of activity Total films Total songs average films/year
Hansraj Behl (19-11-1916 to 20-5-1985) 1946-1979 71 530 2
Khemchand Prakash(12-12-1907 to 10-8-1950) 1939-1950 46 437 4
Chitragupta (16-11-1917 to 14-1-1991) 1946-1988 148 1028 3
Ravi (3-3-1926 to 7-6-2012 ) 1955-1990 111 792 3

source-muvyz.

Composer Ravi was an assistant to Chitragupta in his early days. Both Chitragupta and Ravi also sang songs in Hindi films and in each other’s films as well. Chitragupta sang 28 songs in 15 films and Ravi sang 21 songs in 18 films. Additionally Ravi was also a Lyricist and wrote about 66 songs in 21 films.

Sometimes I wonder whether singers sang the best when singing for their favourite composers ? Just see the kind of singing Mukesh did for Shankar-jaikishen, Lata did for C.Ramchandra (during 1949-1958), Kishore did for S D Burman, Rafi for Naushad, Talat for Anil Biswas or Asha for first O P Nayyar and then R D Burman.

Lata was also very close to Chitragupta. Actually they had a small group, consisting of Prem Dhawan, Dilip Dholakia, Lata and Chitragupta. After every song recording, they all used to go to Chitragupta’s house in Khar and have a Bihari Lunch there. Lata was very fond of Bihari food. ( I too like Bihari Sattu ki poori and Aaloo ki sabji ). They used to go to Picnics also.

Film Hamaari Shaan-51 was produced by Nanabhai Bhatt and directed by his elder brother Balwat Bhatt. The early 50s was a period when many films used the theme of importance of Joint families or maintaining the old family traditions. The partition had practically broken many joint families and the family system in india was going through an upheaval, what with formation of smaller units of families in metropolitan towns,due to scarcity of space and increasing inflation. Elders in the society wanted old values to be nurtured further, but the whole system seemed to be heading for a transformation into nuclear family system-out of sheer necessity. If a family had 4 brothers,the parents would be with only one family, thus depriving 3 families of building values in the younger generations. The film industry was trying to re establish these but to no avail. Film Hamari shaan also was woven around such a theme.

The film was directed by the elder brother of Nanabhai Bhatt- Balwant Bhatt. He was born at Porbandar, Gujarat on 13-1-1909. Balwant started his career by assisting Naval Gandhi in 1930-31 and then N.B.Vakil at Sagar Studios in 1932. He turned Director with the advent of Talkie films and joined Prakash Pictures with Actress-1934. His first film was Chalta purja-1932 and the last one was Nagin aur Sapera-1966. He directed 34 films, mostly stunt and C grade films. He directed some Gujarati films like Sansar Leela, Seth Sagsha, Diwadandi,Snehlata etc. He was the producer of Dillagi-1942, Gunehgar, Alif Laila etc. Diwadandi-1950 became famous for its song-” Taari aankhni afini”, sung by Dilip Dholakia with music by Ajit Merchant. His film Mordhwaj-52 was the Debut film for Music Director Narayan Dutt. Balwant Bhatt died on 7-2-1965, at Bombay.

There were 8 songs in “Hamaari Shaan”(1951), sung by 7 singers and written by 4 Lyricists. 5 songs are already posted and today’s song is the 6th song from this movie. The cast of the film was Durga Khote, Yaqub, Agha, David, Umakant, S.Nazir, Yashodhara katju, S N Tripathi, Bharat Bhushan, Veera, Meera etc etc. The story of the film was….

HAMARI SHAAN-1951 was a Deepak Pictures’ film.Produced by Nanabhai Bhatt,it was directed by Balwant Bhatt.The story/s-play/dialogues were byPt.Girish.MD was Chitragupta and Lyricists were Anjum Jaipuri,RMAKhan,S.K.Deepak and B.D.(Bhagwat datt)Mishra.

In a certain village in UP,a joint family of panditji resides. Panditji alias Harprasad, his wife Ganga, three children, their wives and an unmarried daughter Kumud who is engaged to Satish,s/o/ Damadi lal,who is stingy like his name.

Gopal is their neighbour. Hs sister kala’s marriage is broken as they can not give dowry of 2000 rupees. Kala tries suicide. Panditji not only saves her, but also gives Rs 2000- and gets her married. Gopal thus becomes his trusted assistant for ever.

One day Panditji dies while saving Damadilal from goons’ attack. His family gets fragmented with all brothers dividing property, but no one is ready to give 5000/- dowry for sister’s marriage. Gopal convinces Satish and he marries Kumud, without dowry, secretly. Damadilal, his father comes there, with Pistol to stop the marriage.

In the ensuing fight Gopal is killed accidentally by Damadilal’s gun. Damadilal repents, blesses the couple, gives all property to them and goes on a Teerthyatra.

The brothers also unite once again.

Here is this song from “Hamaari Shaan”(1951) which is sung by Shamshad Begam, Chitragupta and chorus. B D Mishra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Genius of Jaidev – 23
—————————-

After ‘yippifying’ ‘Samundari Daku’ let us attack ‘Anjali’(1957) (Sorry, no attacking, just proceeding with this non-violent film) Chetan Aanand directed this 1957 film under the banner of ‘Kala Kunj Pvt. Ltd.’. He and Nimmi ware the hero-heroine, with the supporting star cast of Sitara, Krishna Dhawan, Sheila Ramani, Sapru, Kumkum, Mehmood, Misra, Kammo, Jagdish Raj, B S Thapa etc. Jaidev composed ten songs for this film, to the lyrics of Nyay Sharma.

Three songs are already posted and discussed in this melodious Blog. I have six songs, including this one, ready with me, which I will present, one by one. I am searching for the remaining one song, ‘Lo Chori Pakadi Gayee’ sung by Asha, Usha and Meena from one family and Sudha Malhotra from Khar, Mumbai. I have requested my musical friends to search it for me and I am hopeful, like last time, to get it before these six songs are posted and done with.

Jaidev has shown his creativity based on Indian Classical music and using Indian musical instruments in this lilting song by Lata. The song seems to be in Mishra Khamaj with touches of Bhairav, at ‘aankhiyaan bairaagi ‘ …(Again, according to MY limited knowledge of Indian Classical music.) Experts may comment and by correcting me help increase my knowledge.


Song-Jiyara Haule Haule Dol (Anjali)(1957) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Nyay Sharma, MD-Jaidev

Lyrics (Provided by Nitin Shah)

jiyara haule haule dol
haule haule dol
kahin na kaanta lag jaaye

haaye haule haule dol
kahin naa kaanta lag jaaye
jiyara haule haule dol
kahin naaa

preet nagariya

do pag chalaa na jaaye
pehle hi pag par bane baawra
pehle hi pag par bane baawra
dooje par pachhtaaye
sun kar meethe bol panchhi
tadap tadap mar jaaye
jiyara haule haule dol
kahin na kaanta lag jaaye
kaanta lag jaaye
kahin na kaanta lag jaaye
haaye haule haule dol

Genius of Jaidev – 22
—————————–

Normally, a music director superbly composing smooth, not noisy, but melodious tunes with Indian classical music base, Jaidev has composed a western music based foot tapping song as well. May be it was the demand of the film scenario!! And who is among the more adept artists to sing such songs? Asha, of course. So here it is a song from Jaidev in the voice of Asha but in an entirely different style. Just compare this to the previous posted song of Asha from the same film, same lyricist and by the same music director.

Sadanand Kamathji described Jaidev’s Music and his philosophy in these words:

“Coming back on Jaidev, I always felt that music for him was more a passion than a commercial venture. He remained bachelor but was wedded to music until his death. In later years, he was mostly associated with providing music to art films (as against mainstream films) and composing music for non-filmy albums of ghazals and devotional songs. He also composed music for Harivash Rai Bachchan’s magnum opus ‘Madhushala’. I feel, in his musical works, he must have followed Bhagwat Geeta philosophy – ‘Karmaneye wadhikaraste ma phaleshu kadachana’ , roughly meaning ‘keep on performing your duties without expectations or rewards’. I read somewhere that he did not own a house in Mumbai and stayed as a paying guest until his death.”

I wish I can write like that!!….. but let’s listen to this song. I have not seen the film and I do not know for whom Asha has lent her voice, but she pronounces her words in some different growl to match the actress’s style. May be….

Is somebody now likely to shout ‘Yipeeee? With this song ‘even I’ have put this film ‘Samundari Daku’ in the listing of ‘all songs covered’.


Song-Ho Jaata Hai Pyaar suno ji nazron ke takraane se(Samundari Daaku)(1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Vishwamitra Adil, MD-Jaidev

Mukesh and his Composers – 7
————————————

Boarding a ST bus in a depot is quite an exercise and we all may have not-so-fond memories of such pursuits. It’s a herculean task involving strength, luck and technique with which you push through the door entrance to get in. Peak hours pose tougher challenge with dozens trying to enter the rather narrow entrance of the bus at the same time. On some occasions a comic situation arises when two people get struck at the door entrance when the sum total of their waistlines is slightly more than the entrance width. For a moment (which to others behind seems like several minutes) there is some sort of air-lock or more appropriately a waistline-lock.

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.

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.

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.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

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.

Mukesh and his Composers – 6
————————————
Jaidev ! The very name brings to mind some of the most beautiful and melodious creations in our film industry. Sadly, barring a few, the films for which he composed music did not fare well at the box-office. In spite of being a three time national award winner, luck and good fortune eluded him till the very last days of his life in terms of fame, money, happiness, health, marriage and a settled life.
