Khaamosh! Now that is what most mimicry artists would like us to remember this star by. But actually he is more loved for his stylized acting which was not or never a copy of any of the then reigning superstars…. Dilip Kumar- Raj Kapoor- Dev Anand or for that matter Shammi Kapoor. He had a great voice, didn’t have the classic good fair looks of the Pathan descendant actors of those times. Yet he always managed to keep his fan following in the face of stiff competition of Amitabh, Dharamendra, Rajesh Khanna Vinod Khanna etc. And he didn’t mind doing blink and you miss roles at the start of his career. Remember the inspector or havaldaar (don’t remember which he was) assisting Raj Mehra in Saajan (1969- Manoj Kumar Asha Parekh starrer)? He was also seen in a bit role in Pyar Hi Pyar (1969 Dharamendra starrer) (Wikipedia says that he was there in that movie, I have not seen it).

The world of Hindi movie music is like a vast ocean containing treasures within it. Popular and well known songs are like treasures that are known to everyone. Then there are lesser known treasures that one can come across easily enough in ankle deep shallow portion of the ocean. But there are treasures that are lying hidden far out and deep into this ocean and the only way one can discover them is by going into great depth and diving repeatedly and patiently to come up with goodies.

Gosh, it has been a long trek already, and the night is very late as I complete the preparation and the write up for this post. And I am thinking about the 29 months, that seem to have flown by already. I had signed up for getting email notifications from this blog on 1st October, 2010, and today, it is exactly 2 years and 5 months. And what a heady and euphoric journey it has been so far. And all along the way, it has been raining music – most wonderful, and the best. Many beloved and favorites, many loving memories refreshed again with the help of friends on this bandwagon, and yes, so many, oh so many unheard gems to fall in love with on the first hear.

This is the 10th and the last song of the series- SONGS BY NON SINGERS.

For me it has been a very hectic fortnight involving a very busy schedule. Luckily, I was able to locate all the songs’ video and Audio on You Tube but not without the customary hiccups.

Collecting authentic information about old, fogotten artists was also very challenging. To get atleast 10 songs, I dug out about 30 songs from films of 30s to 70s.

Just the other day I wrote in the comments,” ALL that is produced after 1970 in Hindi Films is not bad as much as ALL that is produced before 1970 is not good”. My reference was to the overall quality of films, like story, acting, comedy or music etc.

You must have heard the famous quotation,”Politics is the last resort of a scoundrel”. Though it is not true in ALL cases,it is used since long.

Similarly, the last resort of young boys who ran away from homes to Bombay in the 30s and 40s (and may be even today) was Hindi Films. For a growing Film industry there was a need for actors, singers, writers, technicians etc. Quantity was always available but quality was questionable. This field did not attract the educated gents from good families. So, whenever any educated i.e. a Graduate joined the industry, he was most welcome and he too would flaunt his degrees proudly. Thus you had a Lyricist named Moti,B.A. and Miss Kamal,B.A. in those days.

We are born with whatever God has given us and we can not change it. Some are born handsome, some tall and some handicapped. Some are born with ‘silver spoon in their mouth’ and yet some are born with artistic inclination.
