Mukesh and his Composers – 2
——————————————
Mukesh started his singing and acting career in 1940. Madan Mohan started his composing and singing career a decade later in 1950. His first film Aankhen had some interesting trivia.
• Meena Kapoor sung her only song for Madan Mohan, the beautiful “Moree Atariyaa Pe Kaagaa Bole Moraa”.
• Madan Mohan himself sang a duet with Shamshad Begum.
• Raj Khosla, the famous director and producer has sung a rail song in this movie.
• Lata Mangeshkar was not part of this debut movie of Madan Mohan’s.

Mukesh was very much part of Madan Mohan’s first film, singing a sad solo and a comic/teasing duet with Shamshad Begum which was not exactly his forte. However he comes out with flying colours in this duet too. Thereafter it took Madan Mohan seven years to recall Mukesh for another song. The table below provides the list of songs where the duo have figured together.

S No. Name of song Movie Name Year of release Co singer if any Lyricist
1 Preet lagaa ke maine Aankhen 1950 Raja Mehdi Ali Khan
2 Hamse nain milaana Aankhen 1950 Shamshad Begam Raja Mehdi Ali Khan
3 Kyaa saath mera doge Samundar 1957 Lata Rajindar Krishan
4 Tum chal rahe ho Duniya Na Maane 1959 Lata Rajindar Krishan
5 Hum chal rahe thhe Duniya Na Maane 1959 Rajindar Krishan
6 Ek manzil raahi do Sanjog 1961 Lata Rajindar Krishan
7 Bhooli huyi yaadon Sanjog 1961 Rajindar Krishan
8 Chal chal mere dil Akeli Mat Jaiyyo 1963 Johny Whisky Majrooh Sultanpuri
9 * Zindagi zindagi Chowkidaar 1974 Rafi, Asha Bhonsle Rajinder Krishan

No, this is not a sample list but the complete works of the combo. Considering the fact that Madan Mohan passed away in 1975, you have 9 songs in 25 years. On an average, this comes to around one song in three years. If one has a look at the list above 1-7 are excellent songs which are very well known. Why they did not catch up with other more frequently is again not known. As I said in the last post in this case too there may be no reason whatsoever.

Lata Mangeshkar who was very close to both Mukesh and Madan Mohan has three duets in 25 years.

Anyway, 8 of the above 9 songs are already in the blog. The present song is from the film Chowkidaar released in 1974 and directed by Shyam Rahlan. The cast included Sanjeev Kumar, Yogeeta Bali, Vinod Khanna, Om Prakash etc. The song itself is a triad with Mukesh, Asha and Rafi. It’s written by Rajinder Krishan. Even though this may not be a good song by Madan Mohan standards, I developed a liking for it as I had to listen to it several times to jot down the lyrics and attribute them to various singers. :)

In the next part of this series we shall take up the more curious case of S D Burman’s collaboration with Mukesh.

phir bhi maa ke gun na gaayen
haiwaanon se
keh do aa kar ar
insaanon ko ye samjhaayen

zindagi ee ee zindagi

kyun na mil jul kar sab baithhen
ek ped ki chhaaya mein

ek ped ki chhaaya mein
arre ek ped ki chaya mein

ek baraabar hissa baaten
ek dooje ki maaya mein
ek dooje ki maaya mein
arre ek dooje ki maaya mein

hanste hanste karle pya aa aa are
gham aur khushiyon ke batwaa aa aare
preet ki reet chala de aisee ee
ee ee ee
ee ee ee
shabnam ban jaaye angaa aa aa re

ho o o o
ho o o o
dil hi ganga
dil hi jamuna
dil mathura
dil kaashi
dil ho saaf
to har din holi ee ee
har raat hai pooranmaasi

zindagi ee ee zindagi
zindagi ee ee zindagi

chhoti ho ya lambi ho
chhoti ho ya lambi ho
kyun beete takraar mein
kyun na gujre pyaar mein
ae ae

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.

R D Burman composed over 1700 songs in Hindi movies. Only 19 of these songs had the voice of Mukesh in them.

When I came across this figure yesterday (it is mentioned in the book -R D Burman- the man the music), I looked in the blog and also searched the list of R D Burman songs in HFGK.

“Maaya Jaal”(1962) aka “Jaadoogar” was a partially colour film (which was usual for movies of that era). This movie was directed by Babubhai Mistry for Rajhans Pictures, Bombay. This quintessential B grade movie had Ranjan, Chitra, Manhar Desai, Krishna Kumari, Pal Sharma, Mumtaz Begam, Nazeer, Shree Bhagwan, Maruti, Radhika etc in it.

The Voice of Mukesh #67
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The phase of Mukesh’s career in the years from 1954 to 1957 makes a very ineffectual reading.  In these four years, the number of songs sung by him in each year did not even touch the double digit numbers.  After recording 10 film songs in 1953, the numbers for subsequent years are – 6 for 1954, 9 for 1955, 7 for 1956 and 5 for 1957.  It was only in 1958 that these numbers pulled themselves back into double digits – he recorded 13 songs in 1958.  But all said and done, the equations had changed, by the time 1950s came to a close.

The Voice of Mukesh #66
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The journey following the songs of Mukesh now enters 1955.  As we come into the time period of mid fifties and later, we are going to find more and more songs being already posted.  The songs that are remaining now are the ones which mostly are obscure, and less heard earlier.  But there is fun in filling the gaps.  And if this song is something to go by, it is a lots and lots of fun.

I have been doing some research on the works of Gopaldas Saxena ‘Neeraj’ – both as a poet and a lyricist for Hindi films. Being an admirer of this great poet and lyricist, I have been reading his poems that are available on the websites and also going through the available songs that he wrote for Hindi films. Suffice it to say here that he wrote over 100 songs for about 40 films during his stint in Hindi film industry. After 1975, The rate of his song writing for films had dwindled considerably since 1975, when he began to work from his home in Aligarh. The last time that he wrote a song for a film was for his close friend Dev Anand’s ‘Charge Sheet’ (2011).

In our day to day life we face some or the other discomforting and problematic situations, most of which get sorted out over time. The end of such situations is the beginning of happiness.

One of the discomforting situations which I have started facing in the post- retirement years is that I suddenly remember the tune of a song which I had heard quite often in my younger days on the radio but I am not able to recall the wordings or other details. I become restless until I find the song. It is by chance that I get to listen to the song on YT or on the Blog after months. And the pleasure I get in solving this kind of ‘puzzle’ is akin to attaining nirvana.

Troika of the latest century singers – Mukesh, Rafi and Kishore – 1. Mukesh
——————————————————————————-

Sometime in the middle of April 2015, I had sent two write-ups to Atul ji and coincidentally, both these write-ups were on the songs sung by Mukesh. Atul ji sent me a reply saying that for the time being, he was avoiding posting songs of Mukesh as also of Rafi who are on their way to hitting centuries of their songs in the Blog. So he reckoned that my write ups on Mukesh’s songs may have to be held back for a few days. It was apparent that articles for the special events had already been planned.

A click on ‘Some stats’ page of the Blog revealed that while Mukesh was close to attaining his 700th song, Mohammed Rafi was only one short of his 2400th song in the Blog. A further glance on this page revealed that Kishore Kumar too was also very close to hitting his 900th song. So it was rare ‘celestial’ event like that of conjunction of planets Jupiter, Venus and Mars in the triangle shape which is expected on October 28, 2015. And all the three playback singers are nothing less than celestial stars along with Talat Mehmood and Manna Dey. There was an inner urge in me to pay tributes to the troika of playback singers on this unique conjunction of century songs. A thought tickled in my mind. What if I was to select special songs for the troika of playback singers on the occasion?
