Mukesh and his co-singers – 1
———————————–
Remembering Mukesh on his birthday today (22nd July 2016). (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976)

We start with a new series today titled “Mukesh and his co-singers”. Here too, there will be a table enlisting all the songs (duets, triads and chorus included) of a particular singer with Mukesh. I am happy to start this series with Mohammed Rafi saab and Mukesh singing together. Mohammed Rafi’s death anniversary is a little over a week away and I pay my tribute to both the great singers with this post.

The hint I spoke in the last post was pertaining to the 3 duets of Mukesh with Mohammed Rafi from Do Jasoos which was very much discernible in the table.

Coming to today’s post, there is nothing much to pen down since the musical journey of both the singers is well known and at the same time there is so much to write as there are many songs with different composers and other singers unique and popular in their own way. Some of the songs of the combo are unforgettable and iconic as far as Hindi cinema is concerned. A glance at the table is enough to know the importance and popularity of the songs when the two singers came together.

23 Rakhe Ram salamat Daaku aur Jawan (1978) Anuradha Paudwal, Chorus Laxmikant Pyarelal Anand Bakshi

Discussing the songs from top of the table, the first popular song is of course No 5 from Shree 420, which remains popular to this day. 6, 7 and 8 are famous songs in their own right. 9 is from the first film of Sonik Omi and what a debut it turned out to be. There are a few more things I want to discuss about this song and will do so in some other post. 10 and 11 are Holi and Navratri festival songs respectively and are yet to be covered in the blog. 12 continues to remain in active public memory after all these years. 14, incidentally was taken up by me when Mukesh’s collaboration with Madan Mohan was discussed in the other series.

15, 16 and 17 are from Do Jasoos, with two songs yet to be covered including the title number. I initially had planned to take up one song from this film and make a hat-trick of Ravindra Jain but then I was spoilt for choice.

18 was recently taken up by Avinash ji when he went to meet the Yippee master at Chennai. It will remain a memorable song on this blog for the visit and post associated with it.

And then, do I need to say anything about song number 19 ! Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh and Lata came together for the first and last time in a Hindi cinema song. A song sung by three male singers for three male actors and Lata Mangeshkar lending her voice to three different actresses. It’s an extremely unique song and was made all the more special by Sudhir ji with his post for song no 11,111. Five aces and five artists with their milestones numbers were clubbed into a mind-blowing phenomenal post on 9th May last year. Gosh…some of the great posts, songs and days this blog has seen.

21, 23 and especially 22 were also quite popular in their respective films.

There are several “only song sung by” in the above table. So the representations of Shamshad Begum, G M Durrani, Manna Dey, Suman Kalayanpur, Hemlata, Anuradha Paudwal etc in the respective songs are very unique as they the only of their kind.

Before I take up today’s song, I would like to thank Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for all the help, advice and guidance. The draft table prepared by me had a few flaws and it took us quite a few email exchanges over the last few days to get them right. The Mohammed Rafi and chorus song from Love and God (1986) has been dropped in this table, though I had included it in the post on Naushad. The voice of Mukesh in the song is not at all traceable, but then the presence of his name in the credit titles still warrants explanation.

“saat ajoobe iss duniya mein aathavi apni joodi”, Well, literally, when Rafi saab and Mukesh came together, the songs became wonders as we have seen above. I had no hesitation in selecting this duet for today’s post when I learnt that it was not yet covered. Rafi saab singing for Dharmendra and Mukesh for Jeetendra this a lively song from the film that grows on you, the more you listen to it. Manmohan Desai had 4 releases in 1977 including this movie. The full details of this particular film are available here.

So here is the duet in fast and a short slower version.

Thank you maheshji for reminding that this is a MUKESH-RAFI duet. Even though it is a personal favorite, somehow when I think of mukesh songs this had never popped in my mind. It has always been a Dharam-Jeetu song!!!!
And I should report wat my son just said: wat!??? This song coming only now??!! 😁
Since this is a Manmohan Desai movie logic should not b looked for, so here is something to ponder about. (I ve been pondering since I saw the movie for the first tym)
1) This is supposed to b a Rajput Royal family. How come Dharam & Veer sing the song in snow clad Kashmir?
2) again did a Rajput Royal family ever own Navy, in Indian history? This family does and the climax was on the ship.
3) in the last shot how does the sea become a river when Jeevan is getting the treatment he deserves fro Dharam & Veer?
There used to b another question in my head, but not anymore (after I saw my sister’s twins, that is) just as Amitabh & Shashi Kapoor don’t look like twins in Suhaag, do Dharam-Jeetu look like twins?

Another question is-how come Dharmendra wears ancient Roman dress and not contemporary Indian Dress.

Nalini ji.
Many Thanks. I have no answers. 🙂
I had provided the wiki link of the film in the last para of the post. Its not reflecting. In that there is again a link to the imdb web page of the film which has a few trivia.

Atul ji / Sudhir ji,
An error in the table on my part.

Song No 3 “Khabar kisi ko nahin wo kidhar ko dekhte hain” from Beqasoor (1950) was composed by Anil Biswas and not Hansraj Behl.( HB composed 2 other songs in the same film which had a total of 8 songs)

I have now checked HFGK and Mukesh Geet kosh and regret the error.
Arunkumar ji has also commented on the same.

Kindly correct if possible.
