Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 09
———————————————————

96th birth anniversary of O. P. Nayyar

Today, finally we arrive at a Rafi-Asha duet on the occasion of 96th birth anniversary of legendary composer of beautiful songs, OP Nayyar. I am sure, I have long back looked at this duet and saved the link multiple times in different laptops/folders.

I, for one, am most happy that this was somehow missed by all regular contributors to the blog, and not yet posted.  So that I am having a quintessential Rafi-Asha duet by OPN, which is written by Qamar Jalaalabadi.

Qamar Jalaalabadi has already featured in this series.  So, this post in about Rafi Sahab’s association with Asha Bhonsle and OP Nayyar. Film is ‘Basant’ from 1960. The following 10 songs of this film are already posted on the blog:

Baaje Waala Patiyaale Waala
Chori Chori Ik Ishaara Ho Gaya Hai
Duniya Pakki Four Twenty
Hamne Unke Saamne Pehle To Khanjar Rakh Diya
Mere Dil Pe Lagaa De Darling Apne Naam Ki Chit
Mere Lahange Mein Ghunghroo Lagaa De
Nainon Mein Sooraj Ki Kirnen
Peechhe Hat Hat Hat Babu Chhed Naa
Raaste Mein Ik Haseen
Ukkad Dukkad Bamba

To find an OPN-Rafi song, I was just going through the list of songs Music Director-wise page in the blog and I found that right from ‘Baaz’ (1953) which is the third film score for OPN after ‘Aasmaan’ and ‘Chham Chhama Chham’ in 1952, Rafi Sahab is a regular in all his films.  Rafi Sahab has no songs under OPN in the film film ‘Mangu’ (1954).

Significant, popular and hit music scores of OPN-Rafi combination:

 

Year Name of Films
1955 Mr. & Mrs. 55
Musafirkhaana
1956 Bhaagam Bhaag
CID
Choomantar
Hum Sab Chor Hain
Naya Andaaz
Shrimati 420
1957 Johny Walker
Mai Baap
Naya Daur
Qaidi
Tum Sa Nahin Dekha
Ustaad
1958 12 O’clock
Howrah Bridge
Mr. Cartoon MA
Mujrim
Phagun
Sone Ki Chidiya
1959 Do Ustaad
1960 Basant
Jaali Note
Kaplana
Mitti Mein Sona
1962 Ek Musafir Ek Haseena
Hongkong
1963 Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon
1964 Kashmir Ki Kali
1965 Mere Sanam
1966 Aqalmand
Do Dilon Ki Dastaan
Saawan Ki Ghata
Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi
1968 Hamsaaya

This combination gives us a real treat of great songs from mid 50’s to late 60’s. I am getting the feeling that I have missed something in the above list, so it may be worth visiting again.  I have counted 200 plus songs in the excel sheet, so that makes a good sizable portion of all songs composed by OPN in his career.

Total tally of these OPN and Asha Bhonsle songs is as below:

OP Nayyar (1952-1994)

487

71 movies (562)
Asha Bhonsle

2887

7874

As for Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets, 547 of these are posted on the blog.  Compare this with 348 Rafi-Lata duets in the blog. At a guess there are around 450 Rafi-Lata duets, as compared to anything between 650-700 Rafi-Asha duet songs. Rafi-Asha duets are too many to go through at short notice.  So I will surmise to say that these two have sung many iconic and classic songs under numerous music directors, like OPN, SDB, RDB, Ravi, Chitragupt, Kalyanji Anandji etc.

So here’s is song, a duet by OPN in the film ‘Basant’ (1960).  The year 1960 is the peak of OPN, but he was to go on to give greater musical treat to Hindi film music in the 60’s, with Rafi and without Rafi in a rare instance.  His association with Asha Bhonsle is a long one, which eliminated the need for more than one female playback singer in a film’s score.  Asha Bhonsle is the most versatile singer to have graced the Hindi film playback field.  No doubt, OPN has a big role to play in shaping Asha’s career, in the face of stiff competition from her sister Lata Mangeshkar, who ruled the field for more than 30 years.

OP Nayyar has the distinction of having succeeded in the film industry music scene, without having Lata Mangeshkar sing a single song for him.  It makes a big statement about OP Nayyar, to have withstood this sort of situation and survived spectacularly, swimming against the tide.

The song must have been filmed on Shammi Kapoor and Nutan, seeing they are the lead pair of the film.  Johnny Walker and Kammo are another pair in the film, but the song is sounding like a Shammi Kapoor song. So this one is also among the last few Rafi songs on Shammi Kapoor, to be posted here on this blog. Rafi-Shammi Association details have to wait for another day.

One of the last few Rafi = SK songs !!!
NO! There are dozens of them in later years, almost till mid 70s, most of them hits. In fact, most of the Rafi = SK songs came after BASANT.

Thanks Sir for catching the incomplete sentence. I meant to say “So this one is also among the last few Rafi songs on Shammi Kapoor to be
posted in the blog.”
