Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 15
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘छ’
“छोड़िए गुस्सा हुज़ूर ऐसी नाराज़ी भी क्या”

वो बादशाह सुरों का (He, the monarch of musical notes)

This phrase is used as the intro caption by one of the fans who uploads many songs of Rafi Sb on YouTube. (His name is Ahsaan Qasim.  He is a dear friend, and part of the wide circle of collector friends).

I have discussed in one of my earlier posts, about Rafi Sb’s cognizance of the emotional intent of a song, and his ability to capture and express its exact flavor and nuance, when he would sing it. This ability made his playback voice so intensely an integral subsumed part of the on screen performance, that his voice seemed to dissolve into the persona on screen, losing its own identity. And Rafi Sb had no favorites in this regard. His voice became the voice of any and every actor who lip synced his songs on screen. No other singer in this domain has been able to emulate This remarkable and pervasive characteristic of Rafi Sb’s singing. Other singers either have a very unique characteristic of their singing voice that is identifiable in every song they have given their voice to, or the identity of their voice matches the identity of some select actors and on screen roles. As I said, the pervasiveness of this ability of Rafi Sb continues to be unmatched.

Genius of Jaidev – 40
——————————–
Searching on internet YouTube, I came across this Rafi’s 1969 ‘Sapna’ song for my ‘Genius of Jaidev’ series. According to HFGK this Rafi’s song is also sung by Krishna Kalle with some minor variations in lyrics for the same film. What can be better, as suggested by seniors of ASAD, than presenting two songs in one posting today, to remember Jaidevji, who took permanent ‘nirvaan’ on this day, the 6th January, 28 years ago!

There are many flavors of ‘roothhnaa’ and ‘manaanna’ in Hindi films. There are many songs that we like, which are about one person, lady or the gentleman, one of whom is upset and offended about something, and then the other person will make an effort to placate the emotional storm, sing praises, make promises, make amends and try to get the communications back on track. But did I say, lady and gentleman. Well not always – there are songs that put people of many different relationships and genders and ages, into a song trying to set right the upset moods. I recall the wonderful kids song “Daadi Amma Daadi Amma Maan Jaao. . .” from ‘Gharaana’ (1961), in which two kids are trying to humor and bring laughter to the lips of their grandma, who is offended with the actions and deeds of the generation in between. And I am sure readers will add many more songs of such situations to this list.

Tolstoy is reported to have said “Music is the shorthand of emotion”. Nietzche is supposed to have said “Without music, life would be a mistake”. A quote attributed to Aldous Huxley goes “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible, it is music”.

“Chunariya” (1948) is by now an obscure movie. What I know about this movie is that this movie had Wasti, Manorama, Pran etc in it.

I have discussed two songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from the movie. This is a light hearted song where the lady is calling her beloved who for some reasons has become annoyed with her. And her beloved is no ordinary person. He has got a Motor ! And the Motor (Car was called Motor in Hindi movies those days) could well be a beloved possession of the man, so the lady gives “duaa” in the song that may his motor remain intact.

Hansraj Behl made his composing debut in Hindi films, in the year 1946. As per records, his first film released is ‘Pujaari’ (1946). In the same year, two more films were also released with music composed by him. these are ‘Phulwaari’ and ‘Gvaalan’. Rare films in their own rights, and very little is known about them. This delightful song is from the film ‘Gvaalan’, sung by Zohrabai Ambaalewaali (or Zohrabai Ambaalaa).
