Today, 24th February is the birth anniversary of Talat Mehmood (born 1924).

There are approximately 650 film songs identified, as being sung by him. It is a known fact that during the decade of 1950s, Talat Sb spent more of his energies in trying to establish himself as an actor-singer. He had the presence and the looks of a leading hero, plus a voice that at one time had stolen the hearts of film goers and listeners. But the on-screen combination somehow did never strike a rapport with the audience, getting only a lukewarm reception at the box office. Rising from the mid 1940s along with the other mainstream singers, he allowed his ratings as a playback singer to falter, in his effort to be a singing start. Now, it is just a matter of speculation how the history of Hindi films and Hindi film music could have been different, had some different choices had been made by Talat Sb.

In this context, it is very interesting to note that the decade of 1950 evolved in the manner it did – given that some leading singers made some different choices. The other names that come to mind are Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Mukesh also focused his energies on becoming an actor, for a good part of the early half of 1950s. Similarly, Kishore Kumar did not focus on being a dedicated playback singer – he also first went the actor route to establish himself in the industry. It is recognized that he was successful to a great extent to establish himself as an actor of some merit and popular following, with a continuous string of films that mattered. But even for him, his career as an actor eclipsed by mid 1960s, and his decision to come into his own as a playback singer in late 1960s, did wonders of a different type in his career. And so the debate about ‘What if. . .’ applied to these three singers is interesting, but of course a moot exercise. The history of Hindi film music is what it is. The choices had been made.

Today’s song has been sent in by Avinash ji. The film is ‘Samaapti’ from 1949. The film is produced at the Calcutta center, under the banner of Uma Productions, and is directed by Amar Mullick. The star cast of the film is briefly listed in the Geet Kosh as Talat Mehmood, Bharti Devi, Heeralal and Sunder. Given that Talat Mehmood is starring in this film, this song most likely is picturized on himself.

The film has 8 songs listed. Music direction is by Timir Baran. The lyricist name is listed for six of the songs – Pandit Bhushan. Two of these songs, including this one, are solo renderings by Talat Sb, two are solo songs by Suprabha Sarkar, and two are duets of Talat and Suprabha Sarkar. Information about the lyricists and singers of the remaining two songs is not available.

A light hearted song of happiness, that tells about the heart singing like a bird – rendered so effortlessly by Talat Sb. Listen and enjoy.

koyal ki si pal pal kooke
hans hans phool khilaaye
koyal ki si pal pal kooke
hans hans phool khilaaye

tadap rahe hai naina
bol rahi hai
boley mann ki maina
mann ki maina bol rahi hai
boley mann ki maina
