Dada Burman – the senior doyen of the music directors of Indian cinema. A music director who, unlike many other music dirrctors,  maintained  consistency in his work all through his career. His fans, critics and observers of music, journalists and industry biggies – whatever they may say about his work, all agree that Sachin Da has consistently maintained a very high quality and a very high standard of his music direction work, across all his films.

Remembering SD Burman on the anniversary of his passing away – 31st October, 1975, i.e. 47 years ago.

He started his career as a singer with the Calcutta Radio Station in the late 1920s. There are some other interesting trivia about his early career which are probably not well known. That he made his debut as a singer in the New Theatres production ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1933), but the songs recorded by him were not used. They were rercorded in the voice of Pahadi Sanyal. Then in 1934, he appeared on screen in the film ‘Selima’, in which is played a role of a singer. In 1935, he made another similar on screen appearance in the Bangla film ‘Birodhi’. The same year he also sang in another Bangla film – ‘Sanjher Pidim.

Before entering the cinema world as a music director, he worked for the Bangla theatre in Calcutta, and composed music for famous plays such as ‘Sati Tirath’ and ‘Janani’. In Bangla cinema, his first film as a music director was ‘Sudurer Priye’ in 1935. In the next decade, from 1935 to 1945, he composed music for 18 Bangla films. In 1945, he moved to Bombay as the invitation of Sashadhar Mukherjee of Filmistan. In 1946, Filmistan released two films with his music – ‘Shikari’ and ‘Eight Days’. Big time success came his way the subsequent year when ‘Do Bhai’ (1947) was released. The iconic song “Mera Sundar Sapna Beet Gaya” in the voice of Geeta Dutt became and all time great hit. And the rest, as they say, is history.

In a career that spans four decades, Sahin Da has composed music for about 110 films – both Hindi and Bangla.

Almost five decades have gone by since he bid farewell to this life. And it seems that we have not heard all of his music; that there are still more of his creations to be explored and enjoyed. As I was searching today for a song to go with this post, I stumbled upon this wonderful melody from thr 1954 film ‘Radha Krishna’. A song in the voice of Asha Bhosle, this is an exquisite piece of melody and poetry that is such a pleasing listen. After a long time I use the phrase ‘love at first listen’, as I started to hear this song for the first time, earlier in the day today.

The lyrics are wonderful poetry by Narendra Sharma. The words tell of an expected tryst between the Eternal Lovers – Radha and Krishna. The poet writes such exquisite lines – “. . .ghir ghir aayi milan yaamini, kabhi na hogi bhor. . .”. The sound of chorus is so beautifully used in this composition.

A must listen song – I am sure you will fall in love with.

Song – Neel Gagan Mein Maadal Baaje (Radha Krishna) (1954) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Narendra Sharma, MD – SD Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

neelgagan  mein maadal baaje
maadal baaje. . .
neelgagan  mein maadal baaje
angnaa mein naache mor sakhi ri ali
angnaa mein naache mor. . .
ghir ghir aayi milan yamini
kabhi na hogi bhor sakhi ri ali
kabhi na hogi bhor. . .
neelgagan  mein maadal baaje

sapne mein aaye manhar saiyyan
hans kar pakdi baiyyan ho
hans kar pakdi baiyyan
laaj ke maare mar mar jaaun
padun sajan ke paiyyan
paiyyan
hans kar pakdi baiyyan
jhagad ke hum ne baanh chhudaai
angnaa ki tooti kor sakhi ri ali
angnaa ki tooti kor. . .
neelgagan  mein maadal baaje

naath kahi meri ek na maani
piya kare manmaani ho
piya kare manmaani
jitna sataaye ati mann bhaaye
reet hai ye anjaani
piya kare manmaani
pag pag par mujhe rokat mori
anchal ka pakde chhor sakhi ri ali
anchal ka pakde chhor. . .
neelgagan  mein maadal baaje

kabhi milan kabhi bichhdan waali
preet ki reet niraali ho
preet ki reet niraali
ho oo neend ke maare lag gayi akhiyaan
rooth gaye banmaali
rooth gaye banmaali. . .
jaag jaag mann bhaavan aaye
bhavnaan mein mach gaya shor sakhi ri ali
bhavnaan mein mach gaya shor. . .
neelgagan  mein maadal baaje
angnaa mein naache mor sakhi ri ali
angnaa mein naache mor. . .
ghir ghir aayi milan yamini
kabhi na hogi bhor sakhi ri ali
kabhi na hogi bhor. . .
neelgagan  mein maadal baaje. . .

maadal baaje
maadal baaje
maadal baaje
aa aaa aaa aaaa
aa aaa aaa

maadal baaje
maadal baaje
maadal baaje
aa aaa aaa aaaa
oo oo oo

नीलगगन में मादल बाजे
मादल बाजे॰ ॰ ॰
नीलगगन में मादल बाजे
अंगना में नाचे मोर सखी री आली
अंगना में नाचे मोर॰ ॰ ॰
घिर घिर आई मिलन यामिनी
कभी ना होगी भोर सखी री आली
कभी ना होगी भोर॰ ॰ ॰
नीलगगन में मादल बाजे

सपने में आए मन हर सैंय्यां
हंस कर पकड़ी बैंय्यां हो
हंस कर पकड़ी बैंय्यां
लाज के मारे मर मर जाऊँ
पड़ूँ सजन के पैंय्यां
पैंय्यां
हंस कर पकड़ी बैंय्यां
झगड़ कर हमने बांह छुड़ाई
अंगना की टूटी कोर सखी री आली
अंगना की टूटी कोर॰ ॰ ॰
नीलगगन में मादल बाजे

नाथ कही मेरी एक ना मानी
पिया करे मनमानी हो
पिया करे मनमानी
जितना सताये अति मन भाए
रीत है ये अनजानी
पिया करे मनमानी
पग पग पर मुझे रोकत मोरे
अंचल का पकड़े छोर सखी री आली
अंचल का पकड़े छोर॰ ॰ ॰
नीलगगन में मादल बाजे

कभी मिलन कभी बिछड़न वाली
प्रीत की रीत निराली हो
प्रीत की रीत निराली
हो ओ
नींद के मारे लग गई अखियां
रूठ गए बनमाली
रूठ गए बनमाली॰ ॰ ॰
जाग जाग मन भावन आए
भवनां में मच गया शोर सखी री आली
भवनां में मच गया शोर॰ ॰ ॰
नीलगगन में मादल बाजे
अंगना में नाचे मोर सखी री आली
अंगना में नाचे मोर॰ ॰ ॰
घिर घिर आई मिलन यामिनी
कभी ना होगी भोर सखी री आली
कभी ना होगी भोर॰ ॰ ॰
नीलगगन में मादल बाजे॰ ॰ ॰

मादल बाजे
मादल बाजे
मादल बाजे
आ आ आ आ
आ आ आ

मादल बाजे
मादल बाजे
मादल बाजे
आ आ आ आ
ओ ओ ओ

Besides SD, other music director who maintained the same consisitency was JAIKISHAN of SJ.In fact from the very first film BARSAAT till ANDAAZ – JAIKISHAN was the only music director who could match the consistency and pull up ace up sleeve till his swan song – ZINAGI EK SAFAR HAI SUHANA and only MD to be in top league from first to last film.
