Today’s song under discussion is “Bol bol bol bol My little dove” from the film Baap Bete-59. The music Director for this film is Madan Mohan.

MADAN MOHAN. An Unique composer. A thorough Gentleman. Lata Mangeshkar had called him “The King of Ghazal”. He created masterpieces in her voice, which set high standards in films. Madan Mohan, however,could never combine Class with Mass appeal unlike other composers like Naushad, S D Burman or Roshan or Shanker – Jaikishen.

During his initial struggling days in Bombay, he worked as an assistant to S D Burman and Shyamsunder for films made at Filmistan, where his father Rai Bahadur Chunilal was a Partner. He never took undue advantage of his father’s position and created his own space with hard work. His first film “Aankhen”(1950) was without a song of Lata- who became his Lead singer later, making some of his creations all-time greats. They made a great Team together.

Madan Mohan also used Rafi and Talat to great advantage. He was known to create songs as per the situations in the film. Madan Mohan considered C.Ramchandra as his Mentor and Idol. Although a Punjabi, Madan Mohan’s music rarely reflected the “Punjabi style” of O P Nayyar or other Punjabi composers. The Punjab school of music gave many everlasting melodies, but Madan Mohan was different. He truly was an ‘Artistic Aristocrat’. His music was of a different class altogether.

He gave music in 91 films + Veer Zaara in 2004, which was made with his tunes. His genius work, unfortunately did not have the backing of lady Luck. In spite of doing all the good work, he never won any Film fare award. He became more famous after he was gone.

Just one example is enough to show how good luck eluded him from the beginning. After working for 6 years in films,his first film to become a Hit was “Bhai Bhai”-56. It ran for 24 weeks and then there was a dispute between the producer and the Distributor. The result was- The film “Bhai Bhai” was removed from theatres in the 24th week and it missed the Silver Jubilee by a whisker !

He had to wait for another 8 more years for his next Silver Jubilee Hit “Woh kaun thhi “-64…14 years after he had made a beginning ! He was nominated for Filmfare awards many times, but did not get it even once. None of his songs, nor Male singers, nor Female singers nor even any Lyricist got any award for his film music.

Nevertheless Madan Mohan always gave his best in his assignments. He gave music to 2 Raj Kapoor films and 3 Dev Anand films, but no film of Dilip Kumar. And Dilip was his family friend ! Madan Mohan gave Playback in four films, Aankhen-50, Shabistan-51, Dhun-53 and Fifty-Fifty-56.

Lata Mangeshkar sang 210 songs for him in 68 films. Out of this 168 were solos. His total songs in 91 films were 684 songs. Madan Mohan planned his songs in the films in such a way that his Heroines got justice in the songs. In the film Bhai-Bhai-56, there were three Heroines. Madan Mohan gave one Hit song to each one. Nimmi got ‘kadar jaane naa’. Nirupa Roy sang ‘mera chhota sa dekho ye sansar hai’. and Shyama sang ‘aye dil mujhe bata de’.

Similarly, in the film ‘Dekh kabira roya’-57, there were three good songs for the three Heroines and what’s more all these songs came one after another in the film serially. Ameeta sang, ‘Meri veena tum bin roye’, Anita Guha got ,’ashkon se teri hum ne’, and Shubha Khote sang,’Tu pyar karen ya thukarayen’.

In the film Chandan-58, he did something different. One song, “ye khule khule se gesoo” was filmed on 3 different Heroines, but each Heroine got a different Antara tune in the same song. Thus Nutan, Shyama and Mala Sinha got equal weightage in the song picturisation.

While Madan Mohan was known as an original composer,at times, he showed that he too had feet of clay ! To my knowledge,there were at least 4 songs from Madan Mohan which were not his own tunes.

S No. Name of movie (year) Song Singer Copied from
1 Mem Sahib (1956) dil dil se milakar dekho Kishore Kumar Frank Sinatra’s “The isle of Capri”
2 Aakhri Daaon(1958) Tujhe kya sunaun mai dilruba Rafi Copied from Sajjad Hussain’s “ye hawa ye raat ye chandni” from film Sangdil-52
3 Pooja Ke Phool (1964) Meow meow meri sakhi Lata originally sung in Tamil by M S Rajeshwari (meow meow Punnakutti) in the film ‘Kumudam’-62.
Then its Telugu version was sung by S.Janaki( oho oho paurama) in the film ‘Manchi manusulu’-63.
4 Baap Bete (1959) Bol Bol my little love- the song under discussion Rafi blatant copy of the famous Paul Enka song “Diana”. This same tune was later copied by Usha Khanna too as “Kaun ye aaya mehfil mein” in the film “Dil deke Dekho”-59

This does not in anyway lowers the standing of Madan Mohan in HFM. All other composers too did something like this in their songs. Moreover the number of original songs of Madan Mohan far outnumber these inspirations. Madan Mohan is remembered for his superb Ghazals and sweet melodious Lata numbers. These compositions are enough to make his immortal in the annals of HFM history.

bol bol bol bol my little dove
dil mera poochhta hai whom do you love
Mujhse jo pyaar hai to tell please tell
Bajegi kis din wedding bell
Please please

Here is a song from the film ABHIMAN-57. The name Abhiman ( Pride ) will remind people of another film of the same name , made in 1973-featuring Amitabh and Jaya. It was on the life of two singers who get married because of music and later get separated also because of music and Pride of one partner. This 1957 film was also about Pride but not about Music. It was a family drama depicting false pride of a girl-destroying her family.

I am sure you must have heard the names of Music Directors Fakir Muhammed, Shambhoo, Dattaraj, Brij Bhushan, Raj Ratan, Ronodev Mukherjee, Kamalkant and Vishnu Khanna.

No ? I am surprised. OK. At least you must be knowing Music Directors Ajay, Baboo Singh or Vijay Honavar ? Your blank face says, you have never heard their names.

I am not asking you names of Music Directors from the 1930s or 1940s. All these were composers in the 1960s. If I ask you about Satyam, Jagdish or Ratandeep-Hemraj, what will you say ?
These were Music Directors in the 1970s. They composed music for 5 to 15 films each in the 70s.

Comedians were given due importance in old time films in general and in the Golden Era in particular. This fact can be noticed in movies produced from late 40s to late 60s.

Good, quality comedians entered films and succeeded. Roles were created and written for them and songs were filmed on them. A variety of comedy was offered to the audience. Slapstick comedy, situational comedy, farce, physical comedy and comedy of events- all these were lapped up by the public. Comedians like Dikshit and Ghori, V.H.Desai, Gope, Yaqub, Noor Mohd. Charlie became indispensable parts of films being produced those days.

When I think of Hindi Film Industry, I always ask a question to myself. Why was it that so many successful and talented artistes died so unceremoniously and in tragic circumstances ? Why did those who achieved unsurpassed stardom have such unhappy and sad ends to their lives ?

There are certain special words which seem to be favourites of film makers. These are used frequently in the Titles of films that are made. Some of the words I counted are not surprising. The work Ek (or its variations) has the distinction of appearing most frequently in the title of Hindi movies. Some examples for such titles are Ek roz, Ek thi Ladki, Eklavya etc etc. A staggesring 209 number of Hindi movies contain the word “Ek” or its variations !. This is for the period from 1931 to 2012. The next most popular words are Mera/Meri-165 films, Dil- 121 , Pyaar- 108 , Do- 91 , Hum/Ham/Hamara/Hamari – 87, Prem – 68 , Ghar- 51 , Veer – 45 etc etc.

THE VELVET MAGIC-TALAT DUETS ….Song No.-9
———————————————-
Today’s song is from the film Bahu-55. It is sung by Talat and Geeta Dutt.

Talat Mehmood and Geeta Dutt have sung very few duets together. This is rather surprising because both of them were in their prime and in good demand during the period from 1948 to mid 60s. The statistics in this blog shows that they have sung at least 20 duets in 16 movies (including this song). This figure is higher than the statistics available elsewhere which states that they sang only 13 duets together in 10 movies.
