Mukesh and his Composers – 8
————————————–
It was on 27th August 1976 in faraway Detroit city of US that Mukesh breathed his last after suffering a massive heart attack. He was there with Lata Mangeshkar and his son Nitin Mukesh for live performances in a few US cities. It was the 7th or 8th out of 10 performances to be performed.

A career which started in 1940 with acting-singing soon settled and rightly so for playback only. In a career spanning 36 years, Mukesh sang less than a 1000 songs. However each one of these songs is a gem, in its own right.

In my post last year Mil Na saka dil ko agar pyaar tumhaare on the same date, we had seen the various roles donned by Mukesh before he finally took up play back singing alone seriously. The last entry of the table in the post was about the film titled “Anuraag” released in 1956. In this movie Mukesh was the Actor, Singer, Music Director and Producer.

Continuing this series on “Mukesh and his Composers”, we shall have a look at all the songs that Mukesh sang and composed himself. Anuraag was in fact the first and last film that he composed for. Apart from two solos on himself, he also accommodated Shamshad Begam, Lata Mangeshkar, and Manna Dey etc for playback in this film.

Mukesh is one of the few singers whose NFS are as famous as his film songs. In the NFS category he composed five of his songs himself. Below is the table of the film and NFS he sang and composed himself.

In compiling the table, it goes without saying that I again received prompt help from Shri Harish ji who was also kind enough to share the lyrics in Hindi of today’s song. I was unaware that the last song on Pandit Nehru was also composed by Mukesh.

S.No Song Lyricist Movie
1 Kise yaad rakhoon kise bhool jaaun Kaif Irfani Anuraag(1956)
2 Pal bhar hi ki pehchaan mein Indeewar Anuraag(1956)
3 Gayee yak bayak jo havaa Zafar NFS
4 Jiyenge magar muskura Kaif Irfani NFS
5 Diyaa apni khudi ko Zafar NFS
6 Do zulmi naina humpe Kaif Irfani NFS
7 Chacha Nehru…phool khilega Shailendra NFS

Paying tributes to the legend on the 39th year of his passing away, I present here one of Mukesh’s NFS written by Zafar and well, composed by himself.


Song-Diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita (Mukesh NFS)(1960) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Zafar, MD-Mukesh

Lyrics

Diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita
wo jo parda sa beech mein thha na raha
raha parde mein ab wo na parda nasheen
koi doosra uske siwa na raha
raha parde mein ab wo na parda nasheen
koi doosra uske siwa na raha
diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita

na thhi haal ki jab hamen apne khabar
rahe dekhte auron ke aib o hunar
na thhi haal ki jab hamen apne khabar
rahe dekhte auron ke aib o hunar
padi apni buraaiyon per jo nazar
to nigaah mein koi bura na raha
padi apni buraaiyon per jo nazar
to nigaah mein koi bura na raha
diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita

zafar aadmi usko na jaaniyega
zafar aadmi usko na jaaniyega
ho wo kaisa hi saahab e paimozkaar
jise aish mein yaad e khuda na rahi
jise taish mein khauf e khuda na raha
jise aish mein yaad e khuda na rahi
jise taish mein khauf e khuda na raha
diya apni khudi ko jo hamne mita

Mukesh and his Composers – 7
————————————

Boarding a ST bus in a depot is quite an exercise and we all may have not-so-fond memories of such pursuits. It’s a herculean task involving strength, luck and technique with which you push through the door entrance to get in. Peak hours pose tougher challenge with dozens trying to enter the rather narrow entrance of the bus at the same time. On some occasions a comic situation arises when two people get struck at the door entrance when the sum total of their waistlines is slightly more than the entrance width. For a moment (which to others behind seems like several minutes) there is some sort of air-lock or more appropriately a waistline-lock.

Mukesh and his Composers – 6
————————————
Jaidev ! The very name brings to mind some of the most beautiful and melodious creations in our film industry. Sadly, barring a few, the films for which he composed music did not fare well at the box-office. In spite of being a three time national award winner, luck and good fortune eluded him till the very last days of his life in terms of fame, money, happiness, health, marriage and a settled life.

Mukesh and his Composers – 5a
—————————————-

In my last post on Mukesh’s birth anniversary(sab thhaath pada rah jaavega), we saw his association with Khaiyyam in terms of his “film songs”. I had said that I would come back with his NFS for the composer sometime later. Though I was cognizant about most of the NFS, I was not very sure of the complete list and hence restricted myself to the film songs. When I wrote that post, I too was not aware that “sometime later” would mean the very next post, that’s this one.

Harish Raghuvanshi ji the compiler of “Mukesh Geetkosh” (1985) sent a mail to Arunkumar sir, to be forwarded to self, with the details of the NFS of Mukesh for Khaiyyam. Details received from such an eminent and authoritative personality ought to be included and presented before I proceed with other composers. Harish ji’s mail was sent on 22nd July itself, but because of my preoccupations (honestly, it includes lethargy) this post got delayed for two weeks.

Mukesh and his Composers – 5

Remembering Mukesh (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976) today (22 july 2015)on his 92nd birth anniversary.

The year 1958 was a turning point in the singing career of Mukesh. Though he had started his career nearly two decades back in 1940 and had some remarkable hits in late 40’s and early 50’s, his foray into acting-singing in the early fifties had some disastrous consequences which in my view affected his whole career in some way or the other. The first three posts in this series clearly show that his songs with those composers stopped sometime after 1949-50. And then there are huge gaps before he was called again by the same composers.

Mukesh and his Composers – 4

This beautiful Thursday morning let us listen to a bhajan by Mukesh in praise of Shirdi Sai Baba.

The philanthropic and humanitarian deeds of Mukesh are well known and documented. No article on Mukesh is complete without a mention of these activities during his life time. Distribution of blankets to the poor in winter, insistence to share the same boarding as that of his music arrangers during out-station concerts, performing shows for children and neighbours without charging any fees etc are few of the many examples. Also, being the senior-most among many of his contemporaries, he was often a peace maker amongst various disputes that arose in the film fraternity amongst artists. He was often called a noble soul for all these reasons.

The off-screen romance between Dev Anand and Suraiyya was well known. On-screen, if there was any song which symbolized the relationship it was this romantic duet from Vidya 1948 sung by Mukesh and Suraiyya.

Hold on. Mukesh giving playback for Dev Anand?. Well, yes, there were 3 occasions in which this rarity occurred. A solo and a duet in Vidya and a duet in Shair with Lata under Ghulam Mohammed.

The Voice of Mukesh #68
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Such discoveries do not happen often. Finding unknown songs that one is not aware of.  Today is one such occasion, and this Mukesh song is one such song. And the credit for searching it out and sending it to me, goes to Mahesh ji Mamadapur.  A simple email from him yesterday – saying that he has found a song online that he cannot locate on the blog.  Since we have definitely covered and accounted for, all songs of Mukesh till the mid 1950s, how come this song from the 1948 film ‘Mera Munna’ does not appear on our blog?  I scrambled to check, and I found the following.

Recently, I read ‘In the Company of a Poet – Gulzar in Conversation with Nasreen Munni Kabir’ (2012). The book gives a bird’s eye view on the life of Gulzar – from setting his foot in Bombay (Mumbai) in mid-1950 to his continuing association with Bollywood. Before reading this book, I was under the impression that, like many others who came to Bombay to fulfill their aspirations to work in Bollywood, Gulzar was one of them. It was not so as revealed from his conversations in the book. Gulzar came to Bombay not by his own choice but as a part of his father’s plan to divide the financial responsibility of his large family following his post-partition migration from Dina (in Pakistan) to Delhi.

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.
