“Daulat”(1949) was a movie that I was not aware of till today. This movie was directed by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone. The movie had Madhubala, Mahipal, Janki Das, Eric Tarapore, Ghulam Sabir, Leela Mishra, Ghulam Hussain, Seeta Bose, Sadat Ali, Ghulam Mohiuddin etc in it.

Here is a lovely duet from this obscure movie. It is sung by Shankar Dasgupta and Zohrabai Ambalewaali. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hanuman Prasad.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

In the good old days of radio, there often used to arise, a situation when one would like a song, but would miss the announcement of the name of the film. In such cases, one had to wait for the song to be played again. Now with the advent of internet, things have become much simpler where you can actually search, download, store and listen to a particular song often.

I had quite a struggle with such a situation having missed hearing the name of the film quite a few times. When I became accustomed to Google search, I did trace it by the first few words of the song, singers etc. After downloading, the song unfortunately got lost in the huge cache of songs I have in my laptop.
When I decided to try posting this song, I had again lost memory of the name of the film. I had to search a lot in the folders. The find option was also of not much use since the name of the song was with all words joined together etc.

Googling again, I now remember the name of the film very vividly and intend never to forget it. It’s a duet from the film Kamal released in 1949. The year 1949 was a watershed in the history of Hindi Film Music, with several hits encompassing many singers, music directors and lyric writers.
Barsaat, Andaz, Mahal, Dillagi, Shabnam, Badi Bahen, Patanga, Dulari etc. were amongst the top grossers. There were many other films in 1949 with very good music and songs but are either forgotten or less popular in comparison with the above mega hits. One such movie was Kamal with a duet by Geeta Dutt and Surendra.
I am sure many readers may not recollect the combo of singers as well as the film. Geeta Dutt and Surendra have sung only 5 duets together in 3 films and this blog has 2 songs of them covered.

The film ‘Kamal’ was produced under the banner of Hind Kamal Chitra, Bombay, and directed by Surya Kumar. The list of actors includes Surendra, Nayantara, Jeevan, Madan Puri, Mahendra, Lalita Rao, Munshi Khanjar, Bibi Bai, Yashoda Nandan Joshi, Mohna etc.

The music of this film was scored by SD Burman. There are 10 songs in this film, shared amongst GS Nepali, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and Prem Dhawan. This particular song is written by G.S.Nepali.

The song itself is a blue-mood and extremely melodious romantic duet with Geeta Dutt dominating the song in terms of time space.

I am sure this short and sweet chirpy rare song will cause many a hearts to flutter.

It is generally believed that the playback singing career of Mohammed Rafi really took off on a sustainable basis after his songs in ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952) became very popular. I had been carrying an impression that the year 1949 was a watershed in Rafi’s playback singing career. Probably I got this impression due to a number of his film songs I came across on YT released in 1949. To check my ‘hypothesis’, I have attempted an exercise on Rafi’s Hindi film songs during 1944-50. The starting year 1944 was taken as Mohammed Rafi got his first song as a playback singer in 1944. The end year was selected as 1950 just to know as to what was Rafi’s performance as a playback singer after 1949 which is the year I believe to be an important year in shaping his career graph.

For this exercise, first I thought of using Rafi Songs’ Excel Sheet but since the songs were listed there as per the alphabetical order of the films, I found it difficult to cull out the year-wise songs. So I relied on http://www.myswar.com where I could change the display of songs into singer-wise songs, one artist at a time. So I prepared a list of all the songs sung by Mohammed Rafi, year wise. The list prepared from this source was rechecked with Rafi Excel Sheet. There were few discrepancies in these two sources which I have rectified in my list to the best of my knowledge after checking from other sources including this Blog. The broad outcome of this exercise is tabulated below:

Year No. of songs No. of Films No. of MDs
1944 3 1 1
1945 10 6 5
1946 38 18 14
1947 24 14 13
1948 52 25 21
1949 121 49 21
1950 93 38 18
Total 341 151

It is apparent from the table that the year 1949 was indeed an important year in shaping Rafi’s playback singing career. As compared with his performance in 1948, he had not only more than doubled his output of songs but also nearly doubled the number of Hindi films he got to sing in 1949. However, there was a moderate set back in his song output in the following year (1950). One of the reasons could be the fact that in the year 1950, the total Hindi film released had come down to 111 from a high of 157 in 1949.

Having done this exercise, I could get some other statistics concerning Mohammed Rafi’s Hindi film songs. First, the broad category wise distribution of Mohammed Rafi’s 341 songs is as under:

Category Numbers
Solos 132
Duets 169
3 or more singers 40
Total 341

Mohammed Rafi’s first solo song in Hindi film was ‘ae dil-e-naakaam tamanna’ from ‘Hamaara Sansaar (1945) under the music Direction of Pt. Govind Ram. His first duet song was ‘topiwaale babu ne’ with Amirbai Karnataki in ‘Kul Kalank’ (Jeevan Chhaaya, 1945). His sang his first song with Zohrabai Ambaalewali together with Shamshad Begum in ‘Hamaara Sansaar’ (1945).

Second, the top 5 singers with whom Mohammed Rafi sang duet songs during the period under review are as under:

Singers No. of songs
Shamshad Begum 46
Lata Mangeshkar 30
Geeta Roy (Dutt) 16
Suraiya 16
Amirbai Karnataki 11
Other singers 50
Total 169

As I had expected, Mohammed Rafi sang the maximum number of duets with Shamshad Begum during the period under review in keeping with her status at that time, being one of the top female playback singer. In the category of ‘other singers’, Beenapani Mukherjee, Mohantara Talpade, Lalita Deulkar, Surinder Kaur, Chitalkar, Shyam Kumar, Mukesh, G M Durrani, Khan Mastana, K L Saigal etc were other singers.

Third, it was observed that during 1944-50, Mohammed Rafi topped the list among the top 6 male playback singers who were senior to him:

Playback Singers Hindi Film songs rendered during 1944-50
Mohammed Rafi 341
Mukesh 151
G M Durrani 137
Chitalkar (C Ramchandra) 86
Khan Mastana 51
Manna Dey 50

I have not worked out the year-wise performance of the playback singers listed above. But on the basis of some sample checks, I get an impression that Mohammed Rafi overtook Mukesh and G M Durrani from 1948. Probably the popularity of Rafi’s duet song yahan badla wafa ka bewafai ke siwa kya hai in ‘Jugnu’ (1947) may have played an important role for him to get more playback singing assignments subsequently at the cost of G M Durrani. It is interesting to note that during this period, the number of songs rendered by Mohammed Rafi exceeded the combined number of songs rendered by Mukesh and G M Durrani who were his close competitors.

Finally, the statistics of Mohammed Rafi’s Hindi film songs during 1944-50 also bring out some interesting information in regard to the music directors of his songs:

Number of songs
Music Director 1944 1945 1946 1947 1948 1949 1950 Total
Husnlal-Bhagatram - - - 1 1 22 27 51
Hansraj Bahl - - - - 6 13 16 35
C Ramchandra - - 3 8 5 9 4 29
Naushad 3 - 2 - 1 13 6 25
Shyam Sundar - 1 - - 3 9 - 13
Pt. Govind Ram - 4 3 1 1 1 3 13
S N Tripathi - - 3 - 3 1 3 10
Ghulam Mohammed - - - - 2 5 3 10
Feroz Nizami - 3 4 2 - - - 9
Chitragupt - - - - - - 9 9

Even though during the period under review, he had sung the highest number songs under the baton of Husnlal-Bhagatram, it was Naushad, Pt Govindram, Feroz Nizami and C Ramchandra who played important roles in shaping the playback singing career of Mohammed Rafi in the early phase. His first Hindi film song was recorded under the music direction of Shyam Sundar for ‘Village Girl’ (1945), but his song ‘Hindustan Ke ham hain Hindustan hamaara’ from ‘Pahle Aap’ (1944) was first released under the music direction of Naushad.

During this period Mohammed Rafi had also worked with music directors like Sudhir Phadke, Vasant Desai, Datta Davjekar, Prem Nath, A R Qureshi, Shankar Rao Vyas, Ghulam Haider, Hari Prasana Das, Hanuman Prasad, Vinod etc. Surprisingly, during this period, he had only one song composed by one of the most prolific Music Directors of that period – Anil Biswas (Beqasoor, 1950).

During the course of this exercise, I had to refer to YT for some of Rafi’s songs for rechecking the information. I came across many songs from the period under review which are yet to be covered in the Blog. I have selected one of such songs ‘zahe kismat teri mehfil se jo paigaam aaya hai’ from the film CHILMAN (1949). In some places the name of the film has been mentioned as ‘JANNAT’ (1949). In http://www.myswar.com, both these films are listed separately with 10 songs shown under ‘Chilman’ and 12 songs ( i.e., two additional songs) shown under ‘Jannat’.
(Note from Atul- According to HFGK, 10 out of 12 songs of “Jannat” appeared in “Chilman” as well. The record numbers of the same songs were however different for both movies, which meant that different records were issued for the same songs belonging to the two movies)

The song is sung by Mohammed Rafi under the baton of Hanuman Prasad. While under ‘Chilman’ the name of the lyricist of this song is not mentioned, the name of M K Chhibber has been mentioned against this song under ‘Jannat. I had seen the film poster of ‘Jannat’ (1949) on a website which shows that the film was produced by M K Chhibber under the banner of Orient Sound Studios and directed by M Changezey. The names of the actors indicated on the poster are Ajit, Rehana, Balam, Hamid, S Raj and Pritma (Pratima?). I had not heard of both these films and the songs until I came across this song. One song under ‘Chilman’ has been covered in the Blog.

Only audio clip of the song is available. But being a typical Rafi song, one can get a feel of the visual without needing the video clip.

The other day we discussed the fact that we had 400 songs of Madan Mohan in the blog and now only about 200 odd more songs composed by him are left to be discussed. At that time I could not help but remember that over 400 S D Burman songs were also discussed in the blog and in his case even lesser number of songs were left to be discussed. We in fact have 485 S D Burman compositions in the blog ! The total number of S D Burman compositions in Hindi movies is of the order of 650, and so only about 170 odd songs composed by the maestro remain to be covered in the blog.

This would help me as the readers to get the desired information at a click. Very enthusiastically and patting myself for this original idea, I started the work and then I realised that this was a mammoth project requiring lot of time and patience !

With some apprehensions and some anxiety, I put forward my first effort at writing an article on this blog. As has been mentioned by Sudhir ji in the previous post, I have been active in the comments space since September 2012. However, the delay in the first post coming up here, has not been from my side. ;) This first post I had written almost a year ago, and sent to Atul ji in June last year. For some reasons, maybe it got lost in the pile of emails he receives, which he assures me, is the case.

She was born as Tejeshwari, a name given to her by her father. She was also called Fatima, a name given to her by her mother. The story of her parents and her birth, is like a fairy tale of destiny. As they say, when love has to happen, it will. And at the place where it is destined to happen, the players and participants all reach that place, by design.
