Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 21

‘ढ’
“ढोलक को खूब बजाओ, जानी को खूब नचाओ”

Today’s alphabet letter has been the most elusive to locate. Statistically, ‘ढ’ is one of the lesser used letters, and so, the songs starting with words starting with this alphabet are comparatively fewer in number. As I was poring through the song lists from various sources, the search always ended with just three songs starting with ‘ढ’. And incidentally, these three are well known songs, and are already posted on our blog. The search through the lists, whether from Geet Kosh or other sources, is sometimes a problem, because at times a leading couplet appears in the beginning, and ‘mukhda’ of the song appears in the later part of the title. Searching for such words in the title is a difficult and tedious task. But after some extra effort I was able to identify this song. Then I went back into the Geet Kosh again, and confirmed that the ‘mukhda’ of this song indeed starts with the word ‘ढोलक’.

The next step was to locate the song itself. After many tries, I gave up on YouTube, not being able to locate this particular song. (Again, I would like to say that it is possible that this song is available online, only that I could not locate it with the search patterns I was using). Then I went back into my own collection, and after some detailed tracing, I am able to locate this song. So finally, the effort spent was fruitful.

The film is ‘Raajput’ from 1951. As per Geet Kosh listings, this film has 12 songs. The music is composed by Hans Raj Behl. But very interestingly, the music for this one solitary song is given by Husnlal Bhagatram. I request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information regarding this particular scenario. It would be interesting to know what is the story behind this one song, out of 12, being composed  by a different music director.

There are eight poets who have contributed their verses to this film. Another interesting aspect. The 12 songs of this film are written by 8 different poets. The lyricist for this particular song is Moti BA. The other songwriters in this film are Asad Bhopali, Bharat Vyas, Indeevar, Kaif Irfani, Rajender Krishan, Verma Malik, and Anjum Jaipuri. Singing voices are of Rafi Sb and Shamshad Begum, accompanied by chorus.

And so, adding another rare song to our blog. Listen to this very interesting question-answer type song. From the composition and accompanying chorus, this appears to be a dance song, probably being performed at a village fair. The cast of actors of this film incudes Suraiya, Jairaj, Kuldeep, Randhir, Sapru, Shakuntala, Ramesh Thakar, Misra, Maruti, Mumtaz, Prakash, Urvashi etc. My intuition says that given the list of actors, and the singing voices, this song would not have been picturized on the lead pair of Jairaj and Suraiya. I request our knowledgeable readers and friends, to please add more information about this song, and about the film.
