The Unforgettable was the first album of ghazals and nazms launched by Jagjit-Chitra. It was released in 1977.

These days television and FM radio stations bombard the viewers/listeners with new film songs. A song becomes popular at once, or not at all. In a month or two, another song takes its place at the top of the Pop charts and it’s gone forever.

But those were slower times. When I turned up in Delhi in 1979, The Unforgettable was still gathering steam. My cousins had a turntable, and I listened to this album in the good old way, placing the needle on the record. The sounds were amazing. The music was soothing and seductive. Jagjit’s voice, heavy but low, crooned out the ghazals. Chitra’s fluty voice was melodious. Together they seduced my senses with the breathtaking shairi and a melody that gave me an out of body experience.

I listened to the album over and over again. I bought a copy of its cassette as well and listened to it all the time. It never lost its magic for me. At each listening, I would fall under its spell anew.

I know there are many other ghazal singers who are far superior. But that was the time of Jagjit and Chitra and they ruled the roost.

I was just at the end of my teens then. I was full of hopes and aspirations. The world was out there and full of possibilities. In such a rosy scenario, such songs sounded even sweeter, such songs that spoke of love and longing.

For this post I have chosen the first song in the album, “Baat niklegi to phir door talak jayegi”. The song is a recitation of the shairi, it is not ‘sung’. Yet Jagjit Singh’s mellifluous voice makes it sound like a soulful nazm. It speaks of a lover asking a young girl to hide her passions lest she is censured for it. It is loaded with sensuality and sweetness of love.


Song-Baat niklegi to phir door talak jaayegi (Jagjit Singh NFS)(1977) Singer-Jagjit Singh, Lyrics-Kafeel Azar, MD-Jagjit Singh

Lyrics

Baat niklegi to phir
door talak jaayegi
Log bewajha
Udaasi ka sabab poochenge
Yeh bhi poochenge
ki tum itni pareshaan kyun ho

Ungliyaan uthengi
sookhe huye baalon ki taraf
ik nazar dekhenge
guzre huye saalon ki taraf
Choodiyon par bhi kayi tanz kiye jaayenge
Kaanpte haathon pe bhi, fikre kase jaayenge

Log zaalim hain
har ik baat ka taana denge
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi le aayenge
Baaton baaton mein mera zikr bhi le aayenge
unki baaton ka zara sa bhi asar mat lena
Warna chehre ke ta’asur se samajh jaayenge

Chaahe kuchh bhi ho
sawaalat na karna unse ae
Chaahe kuchh bhi ho
sawaalat na karna unse ae ae
Mere baare mein koi baat na karna unse

baat niklegi to phir
door talak jaayegi

In 1980, I was in Delhi, fresh out of college, working for a firm that manufactured car parts. I stayed with my Aunt in Delhi, the rest of my family being elsewhere. My cousins were BIG music afficionados. They could sing beautifully and had an excellent taste in music.

I already loved the film music of 50s and 60s, so I was also well grounded in my musical tastes. My cousins helped me break out of my Lata/Asha/Rafi/Kishore mould and develop a taste for singers like Talat, Manna Dey, Begam Akhtar, Kumar Gandharva, Bhimsen Joshi and of course, Jagmohan.

It is an honor to participate in the celebrations of reaching a great milestone on Atul’s blog. As we know we are close to completing the 10000th post. I am quite sure this concept of posting songs as a collaboration is quite unique to this blog. Unique or not, I like the feeling of being with a family of people who share such similar tastes in music and trivia about music. Congratulations to all of us for this important landmark.

Rakhi Gulzar was born on 15th August 1947. She wasn’t exactly a midnight’s child, but was born a few hours later. She grew up to be a stunningly beautiful woman and an accomplished actress. She had large honey coloured eyes, a round face and lovely features. She debuted in Hindi films with the successful Jeevan Mrityu along with Dharmendra. She went on to establish herself as a successful leading woman with hits like Sharmilee, Paras, Kabhi Kabhie, Daag, Trishul and Doosra Admi (my personal favorite).

I am not really qualified to talk at length about Mohammed Rafi. I was lucky to be growing up during the 60s when the best of our music was all around me. Rafi was here, there and everywhere. He ruled the airwaves.

Sometimes you chance upon a song which is not too well known; but is so sweet and captivating, is so well picturised, dance sequence so well executed, that you can’t but help but be utterly charmed by it.

The purists among music lovers often like to keep a cut-off for their listening habits. ‘I don’t listen to songs later than this year,’ they often say. I don’t disagree with those cut-offs. There are times when we just don’t want to listen to the cacophony that our music often descends to. But then, like a proverbial ‘keechad me kamal’ a beautiful song pops up among all this noise. The sufiana songs from the present times are meaningful and pleasing to the ear. The songs written by Gulzar and Javed Akhtar, set to tunes by AR Rahman are beautiful and worth listening to again and again.

By the time 90s came along Hindi movies were getting loud, the heros were mannerless, ill-bred uncouth fellows. Sadak Chhap Romeos with a heart of gold, diamonds in the rough who start out rather badly, but by the end, redeem themselves by doing the right thing.

Sometimes I find it hard to remember when I saw a particular movie. Was I in college or in school? A quick look at the year in which the movie released is the best way to find out.
