Total 58 movies 19 MDs 188 211 130 68 12 1 24 lyricists

One notices that Lata Mangeshkar did not have a single song with C Ramchandra this year because she fell out with him this year. Husnlal Bhagatram, a major music director for Lata Mangeshkar in her early days had bowed out by then and even they were conspicuous by their absence this year. Suprprisingly, Lata Mangeshkar did not have a single song with Naushad this year.

Lata Mangeshkar tied up with music directors Krishn Rao for the first time in this year. She tied up with lyricists Mushtar Haideri and Naqsh Llayalpuri for the first time in 1959.

Here is the summary of Lata Mangeshkar’s playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1959 :

Total upto 1959 515 movies 1697 2051 1494 411 105 40

One notices that Lata Mangeshkar completed 2000 songs as a playback singer during this year. There is another major landmark that few people noticed. This year she completed 100 duet songs with Rafi. Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar had a whopping 26 duets in 17 movies during this year. That took the tally of their duets to 124 by 1959.

The major music directors for Lata Mangeshkar till then were C Ramchandra (263), Shankar Jaikishan (225), Anil Biswas (114), Husnlal Bhagatram (108), Roshan (101), Madan Mohan (94), S D Burman (87) and Naushad (76) who had accounted for 1068 of her songs till then. Top lyricists for her were Rajinder Krishan (355), Shailendra (214), Hasrat Jaipuri (147), Shakeel Badayuni (115), Bharat Vyas (104) and Prem Dhawan (101). Together, they penned 1036 Lata Mangeshkar songs.

Looking at the table of 1959, we see that Lata Mangeshkar sang 211 songs in movies of 1959. As many as 188 of these songs are already covered in the blog. Only 23 Lata songs from movies of 1959 are left to be covered. Out of 58 movies of 1959, only 11 movies have some Lata Mangeshkar songs still left to be covered.

Alphabetically, the first such movie is “Do Behnen”(1959). This movie was produced by J P Sahgal and Kailash Kapoor and directed by Kedar Kapoor for Brij Kala Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Shyama, Rajendra Kumar, Chaand Usmani, Radhakishan, Tiwari, Rammohan, S K Prem, Mumtaz, Jaleel, Kesho, Brahmdutt, Padmini Priydarshini, Leela Mishra etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs, including four songs containing the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in them have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

The song is picturised as a Maharashtrian Lavani dance song. I am unable to identify the dancer and others seen in the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

The video is of poor quality. The lyrics are based on audio version which is clearer and longer.

4293 Post No. : 15547

Another of those “aa ha” moments, as I was searching for a song to celebrate an anniversary. Sitting on my hard disk for a long time, I just pulled it up and listened to it, as I searched for a song by Khusheed Bano, And wow, what a wonderful creation this one turns out to be. And with a surprise bonus that saved me some extra effort.

Well actually, this post should have come on board yesterday (18 Apr). Having missed the birth anniversary of Khursheed Bano on 14th April, as I checked the anniversaries page, I found that I was still in time for her anniversary of passing away on 18th April. So I started the search and prep for a song sung by her. As luck would have it, I narrowed down to this wonderful song which is such a pleasing listen.

The twist comes in like this. As I checked from the Geet Kosh in my search, and identified this song from the 1941 film ‘Pardesi’, I noted that the GK lists the singer for this song as Khursheed and chorus. But when I played this song, I was taken by surprise to discover that this song is actually a duet, and that too, a delightful romantic duet. To check on the identity of the male voice, I turned to our dear friend, Girdhari Lal ji (of Jodhpur), and requested him for identification. His response was immediate – the male voice is that of Kantilal.

And then another part clicked into place. I immediately went back to the anniversaries list to confirm, and yes my memory was right. 18th April also is the birth anniversary of singer actor Kantilal. And so the celebrations connected and coalesced together into this one song.

Interesting to note that today’s song is one of those rare combinations wherein we have two actor-singers singing together. Yes, there are other pairs that we can list – Surendra – Noorjehaan, Suraiya – Surendra, KL Saigal – Suraiya, KL Saigal – Khursheed etc. Kantilal is also a singer of certain repute, active during the early years Hindi cinema. He has appeared as an actor, and has sung songs that he has performed himself on screen. He has also given playback to other artists. About today’s song, my take is that this song is not performed by Kantilal himself on screen although he himself is also listed as one of the actors in the film. In all probability he has given playback for Motilal. Motilal used to sing off and on. In some films, we find his name listed as singer, and in some films we see him lip syncing other playback singers. In ‘Pardesi’, he is the lead actor, but his name does not appear in the list of singers. And since, in this film, he is paired opposite to Khursheed, and that she is the other singer in this song, it would follow logically that Motilal is lip syncing Kantilal voice in this song.

Now, for the details. We already have a good set of posts giving details about this film and the artists, I will not attempt to re-present that information. However, I will give the links to where these details can be perused.

About the film – ‘Pardesi’, the film synopsis has been posted by our dear Arun ji, in his post for the song “Ab Kahaan Basera Apna”. In the same post, we also can read a brief biosketch about Khursheed Bano.

Our dear Sadanand ji has also presented another brief about Khursheed in his post for the song “Pehle Jo Mohabbat Se Inkaar Kiya Hotaaa”, also from the same film.

Regarding actor-singer Kantilal, I refer to another post by Arun ji, for the song “Dhanwaalon Ki Duniya Hai Ye, Nirdhan Ke Bhagwaan” from the film ‘Holi’ from 1940.

The film ‘Pardesi’ is from the house of Ranjit Movietone, and is directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi. The list of actors, as per Geet Kosh, is – Motilal, Khurshid, Snehprabha, E Billimoria, Durgesh, Keshari, Kantilal, and Bhagwan Das amongst others. The film has 15 songs listed. The songwriters listed for this film are DN Madhok and PL Santoshi. However, specific songwriter for individual songs, is not identified for all songs. As such also for this song – the specific songwriter is not identified. Music for this film is by Khemchand Prakash.

So with this song, we pay our tributes to Khursheed Bano and Kantilal on their anniversaries today. So many things to cherish for, in memory. 🙂

[Author’s Note: The available recording is certainly not the best. I have not been able to decipher one word in the 3rd antraa. I request other readers with keener ears to please help make the correction. Thanks.]
