Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

(1971 – Duet)

The decade of the seventies brought in some significant changes in the landscape of Hindi film song. For one, it was the spectacular rise of Kishore Kumar as a playback singer.“Mere Sapnon Ki Raani” happened in 1969, and after that we see a meteoric rise in Kishore Da’s playback singing performances. The second significant aspect is the accompanying rise of the new age music spearheaded by music directors like RD Burman and Bappi Lahiri. The generations were changing, and the new generations lapped on the new age music coming from this new crop of composers. Sadly, however, the demise of melody was also acknowledged to have occurred in this decade.

There are notions that speak of the declining fortunes of Rafi Sb as a playback singer. However, this notion is simply what it is – a notion. As we traverse the decade of 1970s and examine the continuously wondrous phenomena that Rafi Sb’s voice has been, we shall discuss further the aspects of his singing, through the selections that continue to define his art.

This song is duet representation for the year 1971. The film is ‘Bikhre Moti’ with music by Laxmikant Pyaarelal and the words put to paper by Majrooh Sb. Rafi Sb is joined by Lata in the rendering of this bubbly and sparkling number. The on screen performance is by then successful leads, Jeetendra and Babita. The Amitabh and Rajesh Khanna phenomena was still in the making, and Jeetendra, the jumping jackflash was the well recognized young lead of his time. The marriage of Babita into the Kapoor family and artistic oblivion was to happen the same year. Seeing her so lively and expressive in this song, one surely does feel the nag of the question – what if she had continued acting?

Ah, but we digress. Listen to the voice of Rafi, starting out on the last decade of his career. The vivacity and the complete absorption of the character and the situation is so well embedded into this song, as always. If Shammi Kapoor was the front face of many a Rafi blockbusters, it was a time in late 60s and early 70s that there is a wonderful set of songs that Jeetendra has performed on screen. And Rafi Sb voice, enveloped him and represented him, to the ‘T’.

Listen and enjoy.

With age, everyone declines. Maybe its a human nature to not accept the truth and hence Rafi fans keep bringing this 70s argument all the time. Its not just the arrival of Rajesh Khanna/Amitabh Bachchan and the young brigade. The main reason for Rafi Saab’s “decline” is the decline of Shammi Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar, Dilip Kumar, Joy Mukherjee and so on. Dev Anand who had been using Kishore and Rafi in equal measure since 1940s, mostly abandoned Rafi Saab in 70s. The newcomers of 60s like Dharmendra/Jeetendra and Laxmikant-Pyarelal kept supporting Rafi Saab in 70s. LP even invented clones such as Shabbir Kumar, Mohd Aziz, and remained relevant till early 90s while over-dependence on Kishore Kumar (every 1 out of 3 song composed) led to sudden decline and eventual demise of RDB.

Sir,

I am following this series with interest. I am well aware that though 70’s was a declining decade for Rafi Sahab in terms of output and awards/recognition but there is no dearth of notable songs in this period, most of them not posted.

As for Dev Anand abandoning Rafi Sahab in 70’s he was ill advised in doing so. Here is Dev Anand ending the Rafi era in style :
https://atulsongaday.me/2009/03/20/logon-ka-dil-agar-jeetna-tumko-hai-to/

In this song, it is difficult to remember that it is Rafi sahab giving playback and not Dev Anand himself singing.

Nahm ji,

The music of Navketan and the playback singing for Dev Anand were choices driven by Sachin Da. Dev Anand reposed his full faith in Burman Da senior, and the latter never failed to deliver the wonderful quality of music that is synonymuous with Navkethan’s success in the 1950s and 60s.

It was Sachin Da who would choose the playback – it would Kishore Kumar for flighty and naughty songs, and Hemant Kumar for “Ye Raat Ye Chaadnni Phir Kahaan”, but it had to be Rafi Sb for “Khoya Khoya Chaand”,”Dil Pukaare, Aa Re Aa Re”, “Tere Mere Sapne Ab Ek Rang Hain” and “Dil Ka Bhanwar Kare Pukar, Pyaar Ka Raag Suno”.

After the passing away of Sachin Da, such resolute decision making got diluted, and so did the team up of Rafi Sb for Dev Anand’s playback voice.

Yes , that is too true, only SDB chose the singers for his songs, be it on anyone. There are a few exceptions like ‘jalte hain jiske liye’ (Sujata) where he was not able to impose his first choice of Rafi.

Where as at Navketan he was supreme, he did arrive at complete or almost complete Rafi scores of ‘Tere Ghar ke Saamne’ and ‘Guide’, via having Hemank Kumar and Kishore sing for Dev Anand. He might even have had Talat sing for Dev Anand to add more spice to Dev’s screen persona.

All said and done he wouldnt be Dev Anand without the fabulous songs that Rafi sang for him , not only under SDB but other composers too.

As i have said before, the only SDB score where Rafi is really and sorely missed in the 70’s is ‘Sharmilee’ . ‘Khilte hain gul yehaan’ is the song where Lata version is sounding much better than the Kishore version, as far as I know of such version songs.

SDB may have driven use of Rafi/Kishore for Navketan in 50s/60s, the fact is Dev Anand dropped Rafi much earlier around 1969 before SDB died in 1975. Between 1969 and 1980, Rafi was used for only 4 Dev Anand songs:

-2 of them were Qawwalis – one in Mahal 1969 for Kalyanji and other in Janeman 1976 for LP. Not a specialty of Kishore.

-1 was patriotic song – Taaqat Watan Ki Humse Hain in Prem Pujari 1970 by SDB which was not filmed on Dev Anand. And again such songs not specialty of KK unless its for main lead, like Rajesh Khanna in Akraman 75.

-Mera Mann Tera Pyasa – Gambler (71) by SDB while other 4 songs of movie went to KK
—————————-

-Tere Mere Sapne 1971, Yeh Gulistan Hamara 1972, Chhupa Rustom 1973, SDB didnt use Rafi at all.

-Johny Mera Naam, Banarasi Babu, Kalabaaz, K-A had no use for Rafi

-Amir Garib, Prem Shashtra, LP had no use for Rafi

-Sahib Bahadur (Madan Mohan), Des Pardes (Rajesh Roshan)-no rafi

-Hare Rama Hare Krishna, Joshila, Shareef Badmash, Heera Panna, Ishk Ishk Ishk, Warrant, Bullet, Darling Darling, Lootmaar —RDB had no use for Rafi

Finally Rajesh Roshan used him in Man Pasand 1980 as last rafi/dev song. So for 1969-1980, Rafi was totally used 4 times to playback for Dev Anand, while during the similar period, Kishore was used 88 times.

Putting office time to good use waiting for the weekend 🙂
