The Voice of Mukesh #70
– – – – – – – – – – – – –

This voice has such an alluring appeal. No matter what the song may be, Mukesh ji’s voice has the quality to enliven the song with the depth of his soulful emotion. The words come alive with his rendition. Listen to any of his songs, whether they have been popularized on account of association with successful films and actors, or they belong to obscure, unheard and unsuccessful films. His songs from many such films have remained obscure and unheard. For songs of Mukesh, the unexplored era is primarily in the 1970s.  There still are many songs sung by him, that have to find their place on this blog. Many of them are unfamiliar and obscure, and some are familiar but unheard for long.

Today I present this poignant song of unrequited love – love that is waiting for fulfillment and happiness. The film is ‘Intezaar’ from 1973. The words of this song are written by Verma Malik and the music is from the mind of the old maestro, Chitragupt. The career innings of Chitragupt started in mid 1940s, and lasted for more than four and a half decades. Although lesser in number, we do films with his music, listed well into the 1980s. The last such film probably is ‘Insaaf Ki Manzil’ in 1988. Then, we also see a film listed for 1998, well after his passing away in 1991.

The film is produced under the banner of De-Luxe Films, Bombay and is directed by Mohan Singh Kavia. The cast of actors includes Baldev Khosa, Padmini Kapila, Rakesh Pande, Rinku Jaiswal, IS Johar, Mohan Choti, Lata Arora, Chandrima Bhaduri, Leela Misra, Narmada Shankar, Manhar Desai, and more. On screen, this song is picturized as a background song, as Rakesh Pande and Rinku Jaiswal are seen in the frame, separated by a closed door, but very visibly pining for the other. There is also a child sleeping in the room. I request friends and readers who may have seen this film, to please comment on this situation.

Listen to this tender expression of desires and aspirations seeking fulfilment, and yet, held back by circumstances. There is a certain grace in how the protagonists are holding their emotions, and the words are coming from the background, telling the tale of suppressed sentiments. Listen and enjoy.


Song – Idhar Intezaar, Udhar Intezaar (Intezaar) (1973) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar
tu bhi beqaraar
mein bhi beqaraar
jag ki maryada dekho
bani hai deewaar
idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar

thandi thandi aahen aur jalti jawaani
aag se dekho jaise lipta hai paani
thandi thandi aahen aur jalti jawaani
aag se dekho jaise lipta hai paani
ye tanhaai
ye angdaai
ik hai jawaani aur gham beshumaar
idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar
tu bhi beqaraar
mein bhi beqaraar

paas reh ke bhi itni hai doori
koi nahin samjhega teri majboori
paas reh ke bhi itni hai doori
koi nahin samjhega teri majboori
zindagi hai teri
raat andheri
rooth na jaaye kahin roop ki bahaar
idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar
tu bhi beqaraar
mein bhi beqaraar
jag ki maryada dekho
bani hai deewaar
idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar

इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार
तू भी बेक़रार
मैं भी बेक़रार
जग की मर्यादा देखो
बनी है दीवार
इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार

ठंडी ठंडी आहें और जलती जवानी
आगे से देखो जैसा लिपटा है पानी
ठंडी ठंडी आहें और जलती जवानी
आगे से देखो जैसा लिपटा है पानी
ये तनहाई
ये अंगड़ाई
इक है जवानी और ग़म बेशुमार
इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार
तू भी बेक़रार
मैं भी बेक़रार

पास पास रह के भी इतनी है दूरी
कोई नहीं समझेगा तेरी मजबूरी
पास पास रह के भी इतनी है दूरी
कोई नहीं समझेगा तेरी मजबूरी
ज़िंदगी है तेरी
रात अंधेरी
रूठ ना जाये कहीं रूप की बहार
इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार
तू भी बेक़रार
मैं भी बेक़रार
जग की मर्यादा देखो
बनी है दीवार
इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार

I was in the midst of writing a short write-up on a song from the film ‘Jawaani Ki Reet’ (1939) produced under the banner of New Theatres. The film was not available to view in DVD/VCD format. Luckily, I could get a short review of the film in February 1940 issue of  ‘Filmindia’ magazine which gave me some indication as to the theme of the story. The story reminded me of the film ‘Kangan’ (1939) produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies, as I had watched the 40-minute snippet of the film on YT a few days back.

The original HMV of EMI group was renamed RPG, when purchased by the Goenka Group. Later on in 2000, this major music producing company was aptly named as ‘Sa Re Ga Ma’. During earlier years, it used to sponsor great artists to produce many non-film music albums. Later on, under the false pretext of changing music trends, but mainly due to commercial angles, such publications along with classical music albums ware slowly reduced to very near zero.

The counter has been stuck at double one triple nine, for three days now. That, I am sure, will have beaten all the records in the books.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 21
———————————————————

Do Music Directors direct the music?

This is the title of an article appeared about 72 years ago in June 1943 issue of FILMINDIA magazine. I had read the title of the article more than a year back but did not go through it at that time thinking that it must have been written by some staff of the magazine. Recently, when I came across the same article, I was surprised to find that the article was written by Ramchandra Pal, the music director who has composed music for Bombay Talkies films like ‘Kangan’ (1939), ‘Bandhan’ (1940), ‘Punar Milan’ (1940), ‘Naya Sansar’ (1941) and many more films in other banners mainly in the 40s. The article is well written.

After posting the ‘thhumri’ ‘Saajan ki Baat Niraali’, here is one more ‘thhumri’ by Suman Kalyanpur under the direction of Khan Saheb Abdul Rehman Khan. The traditional lyrics were modified by Khan Saheb himself. These two thumries were on an Extended Play disk (EP) and was purchased by me 46 years ago in January 1969.
