Mukesh and his Composers – 1
———————————
Naushad, Madan Mohan and SD Burman were some of the many music directors who composed songs for Mukesh. So why am I singling out these three great composers only? Read on.

I personally like to club these composers in one category as they have Mukesh songs in their initial films, but later on had huge gaps in terms of years before they accommodated him again albeit for a few songs. I would like to write three short posts on each of the combos.

Taking Naushad-Mukesh first, the association of which started in 1948, when both were at their peaks.

The first two films of the combo were Anokhi Ada and Mela both in 1948. Mukesh sang about a dozen songs in these two films alone. It was followed by 5 solo in 1949 (including the unreleased) in Andaz. So in just two years we have whopping 16-17 songs of the combo in three films. The immense popularity of these songs is now established history and so is the fact that about 10 of them were picturised on Dilip Kumar in Mela and Andaz.

After this phase, the combo did not cross path for nearly two decades until Saathi in 1968. The reason for this hiatus does not seem to be clear and it appears there was no reason also. Unlike the Talat Mahmood episode in Babul, nothing happened between Mukesh and Naushad, even though Naushad had warned Mukesh not to follow the footsteps of Saigal as far as drinking is concerned.

It was just happenstance that Naushad worked with Mohd Rafi practicallyin every film thereafter and Mukesh tried his hand in acting till he gave up his dream of becoming a actor-singer in 1958.

On hindsight, it was Mukesh who introduced Lata to Naushad while Andaz was being made. And one notices that there was only one Lata-Mukesh duet for Naushad in almost three decades.

Saathi 1968 had 3 solos and 2 duets for Mukesh. it was almost curtains-down for both of them apart from a couple of songs here and there. So the magic was sustained only in 1948-49.

In all Mukesh sang about 26-28 songs for Naushad considering unreleased films and songs recorded but not included in films etc. It is difficult to pin-point the exact figure as there will be version songs, unreleased songs etc. In spite of this gap of two decades without a song it seems that, numerically Mukesh was the male-singer with second highest figures for Naushad after Rafi saab.

Of the remaining couple of songs of the combo yet to feature on the blog, I have selected the present song from a film called Tangewala released in 1972. It had Rajendra Kumar, Mumtaz, Sujit, Kamini Kaushal, I S Johar, Jagdish Raaj, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Kumud Chhugani, Kanhaiya Lal, Jr Mehmood, Leela Mishra, Paintal etc. The film was produced and directed by Naresh Kumar.

The whole film seems to be a flashback as this song is sung while the titles are being shown at the beginning with scenes of Rajendra Kumar in his younger days inserted in between. The video link shows Rajendra Kumar as an old beggar seeking alms in a train.

Incidentally, when I began to write my first post for the blog about 2 years back, this was the song which I had selected with a write up on my observations of a cat and its kitten with no relevance to the song. For some reason, the song was not posted and I am really happy for I got to include it in this series where I have very little choice of selecting songs that are not represented on the blog. Taking a verse from the song, all works done with good intention have good endings only. So I think this song was destined to appear today only. :)

This highly philosophical song has been composed by Naushad Ali, sung by Mukesh and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri (The trio had successfully worked in Andaz 1949 as well as Saathi 1968). In the next part, we will take up the association of Mukesh with Madan Mohan.


Song-Kar bhala hoga bhala ant bhale ka bhala(Taangewaala)(1972) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

jinke kaaran galiyon galiyon
bhatke thhak kar choor huye
beech dagar mein chod ke dekho o
wo bhi hamse door huye ae ae

kar bhala
hoga bhala
ant bhale ka bhala
kar bhala
hoga bhala
ant bhale ka bhala
aaj sab kuchh hai tera aa
kal ka hai kisko pata
aaj sab kuchh hai tera aa
kal ka hai kisko pata
kar bhala
hoga bhala
ant bhale ka bhala

jaisa koi beej hai bota
waisi chadhti bela yahaan
kaisa raaja kaun bhikhaari
sab karmon ka khel yahaan
saath kisi ke mela aa
koi bhatke akela aa aa
kar bhala
hoga bhala
ant bhale ka bhala

ghar baste hain roz jahan mein
bas ke ujadne ke liye
milta hai har ek yahaan par
mil ke bichhadne ke liye
chalti dagar hai duniya
ek aaya ek chala aa
kar bhala
hoga bhala
ant bhale ka bhala
kar bhala
hoga bhala
ant bhale ka bhala

एक गाना सुना होगा – “बड़ा ही CID है वो नीली छतरी वाला, हर ताले की चाबी रखता हर चाबी का ताला”॰ अपने blog पर भी है॰ लगता है अब इस गाने को थोड़ा बदलना पड़ेगा, ऐसे – “बड़े ही CID हैं, ये अतुल गैंग के मेम्बर्स, गाना guess करने में हैं अव्वल नंबर”॰ काश, लेकिन नहीं, अभी ये गाना blog पर नहीं है॰  :)

(You must have heard the song – “Badaa Hi CID Hai Wo Neeli Chhatri Waala”.  It is on our blog.  Seems as if this song needs to be modified.  Like This – “Bade Hi CID Hain, Ye Atul Gang Ke Members, Gaana Guess Karne Mein Hain Awwal Number”.  Sorry, this one is not yet on the blog).

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….5
————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1955 film ‘Faraar’.

We have already discussed the happenings in Hindi film industry in 1955, in the previous episode.  Name of this film had not featured anywhere, simply because it was neither a famous film nor a very successful film.  Its music too was nothing to write home about.  Even in such a film, we find a gem or a song special for other reasons.  I selected this film song for few reasons.

Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 2

         Bombay Gangout – Part 2
         After the Breakfast.

After having amicably negotiated the breakfast time, the gang members descended again to the secret basement chambers, to start the day’s proceedings in earnest.  I will have to now write a little bit more about Bombay syndicate members, as we were getting more and more familiar with every passing minute.  The most energetic and the most engaging personality of the hour was definitely the IndiaMan.  He has a joke ready for every occasion, for every topic. Let me tell you why I used the epithet – ‘the antithetic patella specialist’ for him.

Train travellers in India are quite used to crowding, not just in the lower classes, but even in upper classes. Getting privacy is the last thing they expect in a public transport system like Indian railways.

Introducing Shekhar Gupta – one of the quieter albeit active voices on the blog. Over the past two years, I have been in email communication with him, on various topics related to film music and the blog. He comes across as an unpretentious and humble personality, that belies his stature and accomplishments. In recent weeks, when I sent him an email request to get some personal information from him, his response started with such statements of humbleness and gratefulness, in a very friendly tone.

‘Parineeta’ (2005) is one of the aesthetically better movies of the last decade. I had seen this movie on cable TV, but had liked the movie and songs a lot. The movie, cinematography and the understated treatment of the adapted story from Saratchandra Chatterjee’s classic literary piece, were impressive. It is a glamorously packaged product with the subtle nuances. It is directed by Pradeep Sarkar and had Saif Ali Khan and Vidya Balan playing the lead roles, with supporting cast of Sanjay Dutt, Dia Mirza, Raima Sen etc. Its crisp editing is also a feature that I had noted back than, while watching the film.
