Mohammed Rafi – The Incomparable – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Film ‘Benazir’ 1964 has eleven songs – too many by SDB standards and the 60’s fashion.  The theme of a muslim social may have something to do with it.  It could also be the reason that this time SDB paired with Shakeel Badayuni.  Now that I have checked, SDB worked with Shakeel Badayuni in ‘Kaise Kahoon’ (1964) also.  After ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), SD Burman seems to have worked with all major lyrics writers, from Majrooh, Hasrat, Kaifi Azmi, all the way up to Anand Bakshi in the 1970s, in films like ‘Aradhana’ (1969) and ‘Ishq Par Zor Nahin’ (1970).

Mohammed Rafi – The Incomparable – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Rafi Ke Dard Bhare Geet’ is a famous genre of Rafi songs.  Some of the most endearing and touching songs in Hindi films are the sad songs sung by Rafi Sb.  Almost every hindi movie has a sad song.  Amongst them, the soulful singing by Rafi Sb in these songs is widely acknowledgde as the best.  There are many movies where Rafi Sb has only one song even when he is not the favored singing voice for the film.  That song generally is a song for the second line artist, or a background song, or a title song, and in many cases, it is a sad song.  Then there are many movies in which all male songs are in the voice of Rafi Sb.  There are movies where he sang romantic song, light hearted song, sad song, comic song, qawwali, folk and spiritual songs for different actors.  There are numerous examples for both these cases.

sar jo teraa chakaraaye

This iconic song from ‘Pyasa” was posted in the blog way back in 2009. I just revisited the page. There is only one comment there, so I was in two minds whether to leave my take on this song there on the page or include them in this post . I choose the latter so here goes:

Mohammed Rafi : The incomparable – Song No. 03
————————————————-

Here is an example of a typical filmy song. It has the correct amount of teasing, mischief and romance with confidence. And nobody, no singer atleast did this with the right balance as Rafi Sahab.

We all know that Mohammed Rafi Sb is the one playback who had many singers copying and imitating his singing style during his lifetime.  After his passing away, the tendency only increased.  There are a few shining examples like Sonu Nigam who started with Rafi Sb’s style and made a name for themselves.  He is, in my view, closely followed by Udit Narayan and Mohammed Aziz.  During the 1970s, when Rafi Sb was alive, there was Anwar who reportedly trained under him, and Rafi Sb himself regarded him highly.  All these singers strived to imitate the inimitable Rafi magic.

Mohammed Rafi : The incomparable – Song No. 01
—————————————————
I think it is time to go back to the pavillion, meaning my comfort zone. Or I should say my favourite comfort zone of Rafi songs. I have been ‘ beating about the bush ‘ for the last one year and writing posts of various series. ‘Chandni raaten’ is still going on, as far as I know. Some songs are lined up for it, but I have not been able to find enough enthusiasm to write a post for some time. So no more ‘beating around the bush’ (this idiom is closer to what I mean by it), going straight to the matter of ‘Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable”

Chaandni raaten – Song No. 17
————————————–

       chandni raaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten
       sab jag soye
       ham jaagen
       taaron se karen baaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten
       ho. . oo. .
       chaandni raaten

This song has over the years been heard here and there. I was aware this is some remix song of an old song, just like the remix of the song ‘Kitni Akeli Kitni Tanhaa Si Lagi‘ from film ‘Talaash’ (1969).   I used to think that ‘Kitni Akeli. . . ‘ song was a Kishore Kumar song and remixed.  It was many years later that I heard the original Lata Mangeshkar song composed by SD Burman.

behti hui ye nadiyaa ghulte huey kinaare
koi to paar utre koi to paar guzre

I heard this recital by Meena Kumari for the first time ‘ Yoon teri rehguzar se deewana war guzre ‘ when Sudhir Sir’s post appeared in the blog, I was spell bound and could not stop hearing it for days on. The recital was so heart wrenching and full of sadness. I recorded the audio on my mobile and shared with all my friends.

Chaandni raaten – Song No. 16
————————————–

” Ye chand ye sitaare ye raat yaad rakhnaa” from film ” La’al-e-Yaman ” (1956) is the song no. 16 of the series. No songs from this movie are posted in the blog yet, but two songs from the 1933 movie of the same name are presented. This song is written by Kaifi Azmi and composed by AR Qureshi also known as Ustad Allah Rakkha. The recording is not really up to the mark and sounding older than the year of the film. The music is also sounding very period in this qawwali style composition.

In continuation to my post for ‘apne haathon ko pehchaan’ :
There is this bhajan/song which is more a philosophical song from 1989 movie ‘ Bade ghar ki Beti ‘.

Actually it is based on a Meera bhajan, but improvised by the lyricist Santosh Anand and composers Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Once heard never forgotten kind of song, with its simple words and simple philosophy of contentment and containment.
