This is a song from a Raj-Nargis film Bewafa-52 and it is sung by Talat Mahmood.

It is not very common that Talat sang for Raj Kapoor. Raj was convinced that only the voice of Mukesh suited him, so in all the films that he produced or directed, he used to try using Mukesh for his songs. However,as a true Professional, if he were to work for some other producer or under a different Director, he followed the policy of strict Non-interference. So, in such films, we see other singers giving playback to Raj Kapoor, depending on the choice of the producer or director. Talat sang a total of ten songs for Raj kapoor in 4 films, as following-

S No. Song Movie (Year) Director Music Director
1. Armaan bhare dil ki lagan hai Jaan Pehchan(1950) Fali Mistry Khemchand Prakash
2. Main hoon dil ek armaan bhara Anhonee(1952) K A Abbas Roshan
3. Mere dil ki dhadkan kya bole Anhonee(1952) K A Abbas Roshan
4. Sama ke dil mein hamaare Anhonee(1952) K A Abbas Roshan
5. Main paagal mera manawa paagal Ashiana(1952) B. Trilochan Madan Mohan
6. Mera qaraar le jaa Ashiana(1952) B. Trilochan Madan Mohan
7. Dil matwala lakh sambhala Bewafa(1952) M L Anand A R Qureshi
8. Kaam hathon ka hai Bewafa(1952) M L Anand A R Qureshi
9. Tu aaye na aaye Bewafa(1952) M L Anand A R Qureshi
10. Tum ko fursat ho meri jaan Bewafa(1952) M L Anand A R Qureshi

One can see from the above list that 7 out of the 10 Talat songs had been Hits-that is 70%- in those days and they are Talat lovers’ favourites even today. The last song, ‘Tumko fursat ho’ is my own all time favourite. In spite of this, Raj never preferred Talat ,may be he was not Shankar Jaikishan ‘s favourite. But then such are the ways of this Mayanagari !

Film Bewafa-52 was an eminently flop film of RK-Nargis. They worked in 17 films together, including both versions of Jagte Raho. This film had come at such a time when there was a wave ( or a fashion ? ) of Tragedy films. Saigal films had given a respectable status to Tragic films ( and songs) and actors like Dilip Kumar took them to greater heights. After a few initial films, Dilip kumar started dying in films. He had started his career with “jwaar Bhaata”-44, in which Agha was the Hero and Dilip played a side role. In later years the roles were reversed and Agha became a comedian and played side roles in films when Dilip was the Hero.

Starting with Jugnu-47, Dilip, habitually died in films like Nadiya ke paar-48, Mela-48, Shaheed-48 and Andaz-49. Then again he ‘died’in Devdas-55 and Musafir-57. He became famous as a Tragedy King, but a wrong message went to producers/directors that if the Hero dies, the film becomes a hit. This started a ‘killing spree’. Probably this was taken too seriously by Director M L Anand in film Bewafa-52 and in film Bewafa-52, he ensured that all the 3 main characters of the film die one after another ! Perhaps this was too much for the audience to take and they too killed the film turning it into a grand flop !!

So much has already been written about Raj and Nargis that to repeat that here may result into a tragedy for me !

Raj Kapoor( 24-12-1924 to 2-6-1988) started in 1935 as a child artist. He did child roles in 4 films. He first became a Hero in Neel kamal-47. He acted in 69 films and sang 188 songs on screen. He also directed 10 films.

Nargis ( 1-6-1929 to 3-5-1981 ) too started in 1935 as a child artiste and she did 8 child roles, before she became a Heroine in film Taqdeer-43,at the age of just 14 years. She acted in 62 films and sang 203 songs on screen.

Surprisingly, both Raj and Nargis sang 3 songs in 3 films for themselves. ( All stats from Muvyz)

The cast of the film Bewafa was Raj Kapoor, Nargis and Ashok Kumar with many others in smaller roles. The film revolves around these three characters only. The film was produced by Nargis herself ,under the banner of her company ‘The art centre-Bombay’. The entire film was filmed in RK studio. The songs were written by Sarshar Sailani and Shams Azimabadi. The Music Director was A R Qureshi aka Alla Rakha, the famous Tabla Maestro and father of Tabla wizard Zakir Hussain. There were 9 songs in the film. Today’s song is the 6th song to be discussed here. The story of the film was-

RUPA’S(Nargis) life began in a Chawl. She led a miserable existence with her uncle who was a drunkard, who ill treated and tortured her. RAJ (Raj Kapoor) her neighbour had always playful attitude towards Rupa He even sympathised on her pitiful state and preferred only to help her which she used to accept, though reluctantly. One day she was forced to leave the chawl and wanted to put an end to her life but Fate had decreed otherwise. She met Ashok ( Ashok kumar), a poor and unsuccessful artist who lived in a humble room in the neighbourhood. Ashok with a connoisseur’s eye thought Rupa an ideal model for his paintings. This proved true. Ashok and Rupa became rich overnight. Rupa forgot her miserable past and was happy in her present rich environment with Ashok.

At this juncture Raj arrives on the scene-a completely changed Raj dressed like a gentleman with aristocratic behaviour and habits. Rupa was very pleased to meet Raj after such a lapse of time. She introduced Raj to Ashok-who though had not met each other before but had heard of each other. Ashok was not well impressed with Raj nor Raj with the former. Raj’s intimacy with Rupa grew more and more every time they met. Ashok did not approve of this association as he thought that Raj was not good enough for Rupa and that he was more after her money. Raj on the contrary gave all the assurances to Rupa that he only cared for her and nothing else mattered to him in the world. All these developed into a conflict and misunderstanding amongst the three Rupa, Raj and Ashok.

Actually Raj was a gambler and owed large amounts to creditors,who were after him for money. He only pretended to love Rupa. He wanted her money and not her love. She could not understand this. Ashok tried to tell her to keep away from Raj,as he understood his intentions. One day after an argument with Ashok,over Raj,she leaves her house and goes to Raj. They stay in a hotel. Raj’s creditors are after him to get money fro Rupa. He steals her bag and starts running.
People think he is a thief and follow him. His creditors think he is running away with the booty and they fire at him. Meanwhile Rupa follows Raj. She is completely disillusioned to see her love being so bewafa and greedy. Raj dies of bullet injuries. Rupa returns to Ashok,but Ashok too takes poison and dies as he had loved her. Seeing this Rupa collapses and dies. Seeing all this the audience also faints !

Here is the sixth song from “Bewafa”(1952). It is sung by Talat Mehmood. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Qureshi.


Song-Kaam haathon ka hai (Bewafa)(1952) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Sarshar Sailaani, MD-A R Qureshi

Lyrics

haan aan aan aan

sar mila aap ke kadmon pe jhukaane ke liye
sar mila aap ke kadmon pe jhukaane ke liye

haan aan aan aan
husn ki aankh mein aen aen aen aen aen aen
aansoo nahin dekhe jaate ae ae ae ae ae

ishq taiyyaar hai har naaj uthhaane ke liye

haan aan aan aan
haaye aate hi ye ae
jaane ka taqaaja kaisa
aa aa aa aa aa
dil mila dard ko mehmaan banaane ke liye
aankh bakhshi hai kahin aankh ladaane ke liye
ho ladaane ke liye
aankh bakhshi hai kahin aankh ladaane ke liye

This is a song from film Madhubala-1950.

Will you be not happy if you get the Cake and eat it too ? Same thing happened whenever Handsome Dev Anand and the most beautiful actress of Hindi films, Madhubala acted together in a film. The audience used to become ecstatic with joy watching their films. No one cared if the story was weak or the music was third grade. What was more important was to see Dev and Madhubala, with a contented heart !

This is a song from the film Aplam Chaplam-1961. Talat and Lata sing with chorus, under the baton of composer Chitragupta.

If I ever make lists of composers under different headings like, Melody, Tune,Orchestra, Interludes etc, the first 5 names under the heading “Melody “would be, Ravi, Hansraj Behl, Khemchand Prakash, Anil Biswas and Chitragupta ( not as per any Rankings). Barring Anil Biswas, all the rest four composers never got enough name and fame despite making very melodious music. Chitragupta, Khemchand Prakash and Hansraj Behl got considerably less number of leading production house films compared to what they delivered, in my opinion.

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.

THE VELVET MAGIC-TALAT DUETS……song No. 5
—————————————————
Surinder Kaur sings with Talat in this duet from film Shadi ki raat-50.

I have observed one thing that the fans of HFM are generally absolute diehards about their favourite singers. Lata, Asha, Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh, Saigal, Talat, Manna Dey, Geeta and Shamshad are usually the favourite singers of music lovers and their fans are simply devoted to them. Out of this list, just remove Saigal and Talat, because they had Unique voices and there was no direct competitors of them as far as their voices were concerned.

THE VELVET MAGIC-TALAT DUETS….Song No. 4
———————————————
This duet is from film Pagle-50,sung by Talat and Rajkumari.

This duet was a combination of an upcoming Young male singer and a waning middle aged female singer. But there was ONE common thing between them. We all know, Talat had a ‘Tremor'( Kampan) in his voice-which set him apart from all other singers of his times. Few people know that even Rajkumari had a Tremor in her voice-albeit a faint one- which actually made her voice sweet and melodious making her voice different from others.
