Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part II: 1948-1949
——————————————————————————————
This series was started last Monday (28 September 2020), which was Lata Mangeshkar’s 91st birthday. The series has the ambitious aim of providing statistics of all HFM songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar-Year by year.

The first part of the series covered Lata Maneshkar HFM songs of 1947 and 1948. That was easy, seeing that the total number of HFM songs sung by her in these two years added upto just nine songs.

1948 saw a change in fortune for her. This time she got to sing a decent number of songs from a decent number of movies. From HFGK, and also by listening to songs of 1948 where no singers were mentioned in HFGK, I have been able to arrive at a figure of exactly 50 songs from 17 movies for Lata Mangehkar in 1948. Here are the details :-

Total 17 movies 14 MDs 50 50 37 6 4 3 19 lyricists

One can see that all songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar according to the above list have already been covered in the blog. I was hoping that I would be able to locate at least one Lata Mangeshkar song undiscussed in the blog for discussion with this writeup, hoping that some songs where singers are not known will turn out to be Lata Mangeshkar songs. We actually discovered some Lata Mangeshkar song this way. For instance, “Asha”(1948) has four Lata Mangeshkar solo songs according to HFGK. But I found out that another song, namely Sajna re tori kaun dagariya is also a Lata Mangeshkar solo song. I also discovered that song number 5 (no singer memtioned) and song numbe 2 (Lata Mangeshkar mentioned as the singer) are one and the same song. So in effect, it turns out that “Asha”(1948) has five Lata Mangeshkar songs, as against four as mentioned in HFGK.

When I checked in “Gandhaar”- which contains a list of all Lata Mangeshkar songs over the years, I find that it mentions a “Mandir”(1948) song as Lata Mangeshkar song. “Mandir”(1948) had 12 songs and HFGK contains no details of singers for any of these songs. Lata Mangeshkar had acted in this movie. According to “Gandhaar”- the song “lo wah aayi nindariya chhup chhup gupchup dhheere” has been sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This song does not appear to be available. This song, if sung by her was most likely picturised on her as well. Unfortunately, neither audio nor video of this song seems to be available on pulic domain as of now.

That forces me to discuss a Lata song of 1949 with this article. But I will have to discuss the Lata Mangeshkar songs of 1949 too in the process. And that is what follows below.

1949 was quite a breakthrough year for Lata Mangeshkar. This year she sang 157 songs from 38 movies. The blog has so far covered 133 of these songs. Here are the details :-

So we can see that a career that was stuttering for two years began to show promise in 1948 and it recorded a meteoric rise in 1949. 1949 saw the golden era of HFM getting launched which would last till 1980. Golden era of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer also began in 1949, as can be seen from her portfolio of songs in 1949.

Looking at the list of movies in 1949, Lata Mangeshkar sang songs in 38 movies. All Lata Mangeshkar songs of 27 of these movies have already been covered. So we have only 11 movies of 1949 left that give us opportunity to discuss Lata Mangeshkar HFM songs of 1949.

Alphabetically, “Dil Ki Basti”(1949) is the first eligible movie of 1949 which still has a Lata Mangeshkar song left to be discussed. This movie was directed by Wahid Qureshi for Aaina Pictures Bombay. This “social” movie had Nigar, Masood, Urmila, Lalita Pawar, Tiwari, Amar etc in it. There were nine songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

“Dil Ki Basti”(1949) had two Lata Mangeshkar solo songs in it. One song, viz Aag lage jag saara dekhe has been discussed in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar song from “Dil Ki Basti”(1949) to appear in the blog. It is penned by Wahid Qureshi. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Unse ham kuchh kehte kehte rah gaye (Dil Ki Basti)(1949) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Wahid Qureshi, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Atul ji,
I am astonished at the hard work you must have done for all this statistics. Only a genuine involvement in the venture and dedication can bring such a result.
I wholeheartedly appreciate your work.

Thanks for your appreciation. Indeed it has taken me considerable time and energy to compile these details. The hard work pays off when it gets appreciated by knowledgeable persons like you.

Atul ji,
You have really taken the most challenging project of the listing of year-wise songs rendered by Lata Mangeshkar. I shudder to even think of listing of Lata’s songs as you take her large number of songs of the later years – 1950s, 60s and 70s. It is a mind bogling work. It really requires a strong will to undertake such a project in the midst of your job responsibilities. I salute you for your new series.

Coming to listing of Lata’s songs of 1948 and 1949, I had discussed one of her songs, https://atulsongaday.me/2016/09/28/jhoolo-jhoolo-pyaar-hindole/ from an unreleased film ‘Hamaari Kahaani’ (1948). The film had 7 songs – all sung by Lata Mangeshkar of which 2 songs were duet with Balakram. All the songs are available on video sharing platform of which I had uploaded 3 songs about 3-4 years back.

You may like to update your list with this addition which will take the total number of songs sung by Lata in 1948 from 50 to 57,

Regarding songs from ‘Mandir’ (1948), I understand that no gramophone records of the songs were released.

It is challenging, but we have already done many challenging projects without realising that. Taking up one calender year of HFM per week, I think it can be achieved in one year time.

Atul ji,

Two more songs of Lata Mangeshkar which need to be added to the list:
1. https://atulsongaday.me/2012/12/14/pyaasi-hi-reh-gayin-piya-milan-ko/
2. https://atulsongaday.me/2017/07/03/mere-aangan-mein-chaandni-chamke-chamaacham/

One more song of Lata from ‘Usha Haran’ (1949) is yet to cover on the Blog – ‘lahron pe kabhi naachoon’. To me, this song appears to be part-2 of ‘mere aangan mein chaandni’ going by the fact that Lata sings in saragam and taraana and there are a few common words from part-1 of the song.

Atul ji,

That (second post in the series) was real quick.
1949 and Lata’s song details in the year. What a treat.

Thank you.

Coming to Lata-Ghulam Mohammed combination, I doubt if there is any song that is not dipped in honey.
