Mukesh and his co-singers – 4
————————————————

A song recorded and composed by Roshan in 1950, was the topic of discussion on a TV program nearly 5 decades later. The singer (judge on the show) was requested by none other than Anil Biswas, to sing a few lines of the famous song. The specific reference was to the word “ib” in the song “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re Ib Kyaa Hoga” from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950). She rendered the song in an effortless manner without any background music. It is difficult to believe that she could sing so well at the spur of the moment.

Her career was cut short for various reasons. She has given quite a few interviews and when asked to sing few lines was always so very melodious in spite of her old age. Yes, I am talking about Rajkumari Dubey.

Here is her mini-biography, aptly written by Shri Sadanandji and with comments added by our Arun Kumar ji. I am also herewith providing the link to her wiki-page.

Many singers such as Suraiyya, Shamshad Begum, Amirbai Karnataki, Geeta Dutt et al may not be the most favourite singer of music lovers. But, there is no doubt whatsoever that such singers are always held in high esteem, because, whatever few songs they sang, remain classic, as most of them were sung in the golden era when music was given utmost importance. Rajkumari for sure is one such gifted singer.

Of the many songs sung by her and liked by me, “Main Wo Dulhan Hoon Raas Na Aaya Jise Singaar” from ‘Mahal’ (1949) tops the list. Rajkumari has sung quite a few memorable songs in the film, but the tsunami caused by Lata with her solos, unfortunately never allowed Rajkumari to come to the fore.

For this post, I bring to the readers, her duets with Mukesh. There are 8 of them in total as listed below and also confirmed by Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji. I am thankful to him for his ever-ready attitude to help me with this series.

7 out of the 8 songs are already posted on the blog. I have given the respective links of the 7 songs in the table, in case anyone wants to enjoy all the songs of the two singers. It’s interesting to note, that out of the 8 songs, 4 have been composed by Snehal Bhatkar and as many as 5 written by Kidar Sharma.

Again, I suppose, it’s the duet from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950), which most people would remember, and associate with this pair of singers. There is excellent restraint and comfort amongst the singers in delivering this duet. It is definitely one of the first question-answer type of songs. But then, I cannot confirm if it’s the very first.

The duets from ‘Thhes’ (1949) are also often played on Radio Ceylon. I am very fond of Ghulam Mohammed’s compositions and the one from ‘Hanste Aansoo’ (1950) is a personal favourite. Needless to say and as often said in this series, the numbers could have been much more. But unfortunately, we find that the duets of Mukesh with such vintage era singers do not even touch the two figure mark.

Today’s duet is of a more recent discovery in the sense that it does not figure in Mukesh Geet Kosh. Two songs from this film ‘Ram Darshan’ (1950) have been posted on the blog. Both the songs are solos sung by Mukesh and posted by our Sudhir ji.

There are some 16 songs in this film. With this post, 3 of them will be posted. A couple of more songs from the movie (one sung by Manna Dey) are available on the internet. So out of the remaining 10-11 songs, are there any other Mukesh numbers that are yet to be traced? Even though it seems very unlikely, anything new discovered pertaining to the voice of Mukesh will always be welcome news. Interestingly, Cineplot website has not included the duet of this post, but speaks of another song from the film titled “Ram Ram Ram Ram…Ho Moree Mann”. I have sought clarifications or any other info which Shri Harish ji may be having and will keep the feedback posted.

Here is the third song from the movie to be posted on the blog; a duet which Mukesh has sung with Rajkumari. My next short post will be on 27th August and will be a stand-alone song (not featuring in either of my two series).

[Ed Note: In my opinion, Cineplot has correctly identified this song, as the song no. 7 listed for this film, in the Geet Kosh. Clearly, at the time of publication of volume 2 of the Geet Kosh, the information about the singers of this song was not available. And hence, this song did not get included in the Mukesh Geet Kosh. Later, when the actual gramophone record of this song was traced, the voices of the singers were identified. But it also created a discrepancy, regarding the leading lines of this song. The song, as heard on the gramophone record, starts with the words “rooth gayo ri mero shyam“. Whereas the song listed in the Geet Kosh starts with the words “Ram – 8, Ho Morey Mann Kab Sumroge Ram, Rooth Gayo Ri”.

As we scan the lyrics of the song, we find that the line “Ho Morey Mann Kab Sumroge Ram” appears almost midway in the song, in the voice of Mukesh. That gives us a clue. It is likely that the song as appearing in the film, (and also as listed in the information booklet of the film) starts in the voice of Mukesh, uttering the name of Lord Ram, and then saying the line “Ho Morey Mann Kab Sumroge Ram”. Then the voice of Rajkumari takes over with the words “Rooth Gayo Ri. . .”. However, on the gramophone record, the leading words in the voice of Mukesh have been omitted, and the song starts directly with the lines sung by Rajkumari. It is clear from the words in the song that the male protagonist has gone away seeking solace in the name of Lord Ram, in his quest for ‘Ram Darshan’. The female protagonist is obviously waiting and pining for him to come back. The male person is seeking Lord Ram, and the female person is seeking her beloved, using the name of Shyam (Lord Krishna).

If we agree with this explanation, then the music director for this song is identified as the duo of Rij Ram-Balmukand. As I scan the songs posted on the blog, I find that this the first time this music director’s name is appearing here. So this is a debut song for this music director duo. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please add more information about this music director duo.]

Lyrics

rooth gayo ri mero shyam
sakhi ri mo se
rooth gayo ri mero shyam
sakhi ri mo se
rooth gayo ri mero shyam

jab se gayo
paati hoon nahin deenhi
jab se gayo paati hoon nahin deenhi
nirmohi ne
sudh hoon na leenhi
nirmohi ne sudh hoon na leenhi
aiso bhayo ri anjaan
sakhi ri mo se
aiso bhayo ri anjaan
sakhi ri mo se
rooth gayo ri mero shyam
sakhi ri mo se
rooth gayo ri mero shyam

jhoothi mamta
jhoothi maaya
jhoothi mamta
jhoothi maaya
satya usi ka naam
satya usi ka naam
kab sumroge raam
o morey mann
kab sumroge raam
o morey mann
kab sumroge raam

nis din naina
dars ko tarsen
saawan bhaadon se sakhi barsen
saawan bhaadon se sakhi barsen
chheen le gayo ri muskaan
sakhi ri mo se
chheen le gayo ri muskaan
sakhi ri mo se
rooth gayo ri mero shyam

रूठ गयो री मेरो श्याम
सखी री मो से
रूठ गयो री मेरो श्याम
सखी री मो से
रूठ गयो री मेरो श्याम

जबसे गयो
पातिहुं नहीं दीन्ही
जबसे गयो
पातिहुं नहीं दीन्ही
निर्मोही ने
सुधहुं ना लीन्ही
निर्मोही ने
सुधहुं ना लीन्ही
ऐसो भयो री अंजान

ऐसो भयो री अंजान
सखी री मो से
रूठ गयो री मेरो श्याम
सखी री मो से
रूठ गयो री मेरो श्याम

झूठी ममता
झूठी माया
झूठी ममता
झूठी माया
सत्य उसी का नाम
सत्य उसी का नाम
कब सुमरोगे राम
ओ मोरे मन
कब सुमरोगे राम
ओ मोरे मन
कब सुमरोगे राम

निस दिन नैना
दरस को तरसें
सावन भादों से सखी बरसें
सावन भादों से सखी बरसें
छीन ले गयो री मुस्कान
सखी री मोसे
छीन ले गयो री मुस्कान
सखी री मोसे
रूठ गयो री मेरो श्याम
