Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 4
———————————–————––——————————————–————
Chaudhvin ka chaand ho
Ya aaftaab ho….
Jo bhi ho tum khudaa ki qasam
Lajawaab ho…oo….ooo

This time it is the turn of Music director who is known as the creator of iconic songs, popularly known as Ravi. His association with Rafi sahab begins in 1956-57 with the first film “Ek Saal” with 2 solo songs written by Prem Dhawan. Many of these iconic songs composed by Ravi were sung by Rafi sahab in this long association which ended only with the demise of Rafi Sahab in 1980. I counted 251 songs composed by Ravi in the excel sheet of Rafi sahab songs. Around 200 of these songs are upto late 60’s. In the 70’s Rafi sahab’s output has as it is decreased so it is not surprising that the 70’s decade there are less than 50 songs by the team of Mohammed Rafi-Ravi, with various lyricists.

Starting from 1957, there are around 50 songs upto 1960. So the 60’s decade is the most productive one with around 150 songs. This, despite Ravi being at the peak of his career working extensively with the B.R. Chopra camp. There are clear indications that Ravi preferred to have Rafi sahab sing his songs whenever he was working outside the BR camp, when he had Mahendra Kapoor sing most of his songs.

The very summit of this association is the legendary solo of Chaudhvin ka chaand(1960). The film has 5 Rafi solo numbers, all of them popular songs, all the places that I saw. But the excel sheet is listing one additional song with the words “yehan ke dost ba-wafa”, so there is a possibility of a small snippet of rendition of some poetry maybe lying hidden in the movie. The story really does take off from here with 7 songs in ‘Tu nahin aur Sahi’ (1960). Then comes the sonorous Husn waale tera jawaab nahin in Gharana (1961). With 6 songs in “China Town” 1962, Rafi has become the only male singer for Ravi in all ‘AA’ and ‘AB’ grade movies which had ‘AAA’ grade music. Rafi sahab went on to croon these outstanding solos/duet for Sunil Dutt in the film “Aaj aur kal” (1963) composed by Ravi:

mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main
Ye aadiyaan ye fizaayen bulaa rahi hain tumhen
itni haseen itni jaaan raat kya karen

In 1963 Ravi had Rafi sahab sing 5 songs each in Bharosa, Pyar ka Bandhan and Grihasti, on Mehmood, Guru Dutt, Raj Kumar Johnny Walker and Manoj Kumar. It is most likely that there were no other male playback singers in the credits of these movies too. This is apart from the 7 songs including 4 solos in ‘Pyar Kiya to Darna kya” for Aagha and Shammi Kapoor. 1963 also saw the song Sau baar janam lenge in the film “Ustadon ke Ustaad”.

Here is a list of 4 of the popular and unique, of the 7 Rafi songs in the film “Door ki Aawaaz”:

Song Singers
Ham bhi agar bachche hote Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle
Husn se chaand bhi sharmaayaa hai Mohd Rafi
Kyaa yoonhi rooth ke jaane ko muhabbat ki thhi Mohd Rafi
Muqaddar aazmaanaa chaahtaa hoon Mohd Rafi

Shakeel Badayuni seems to have formed a newer equation with Ravi post “Chaudhvi ka Chaand” going by the no. of films I am finding in the Rafi list where they worked together.

Rafi-Ravi combination moved on to Shehnai in 1964 with 4 solos and 1 duet, in a Rafi-Asha score, with one melodious solo for Asha Is tarah todaa mera dil .

“Khandaan” 1965 again was again an all-Rafi score with 6 songs, 7th being the iconic Lata solo Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri poojaa tumhi devtaa ho .

I simply must list the iconic solos by Rafi sahab in Do Badan(1966):

Song Singers
Bhari duniyaa mein aakhir dil ko samjhaane kahaan jaayen Mohd Rafi
Is Jahan Se (Verse) Mohd Rafi
Naseeb mein jiske jo likhaa thaa Mohd Rafi
Rahaa gardishon mein hardam Mohd Rafi

There is a bonus in this film also with additional verse “is jahan se’, we can look forward to finding and enjoying.

In 1967, there were ‘Meherbaan’ and “Nai Roshni” followed with “Do Kaliyan” and ‘Neel Kamal’ in 1968. Do I really need to list the songs of ‘Neel Kamal”? I dont think so. “Neel Kamal” atleast had a Manna Dey song on Mehmood Khaali dabba khaali bottle lele mere yaar .

This is 1969 and Ek phool do mali:

Song Singers
Aulaad waalon phoolo phalo Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
Chal chal re naujawaan-parody song Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
O nanhe se farishte Mohd Rafi
Ye parda hata do Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle

They reach early 70’s to create these two meaningful songs:

Song Movie (year) Singers MD Lyricist
Mujhe ishq hai tujhi se meri jaan e zindagaani Ummeed(1971) Mohd Rafi Ravi Shakeel Badayuni
Mere Dost Tujhe Tera Meet Mubarak Dhadkan(1972) Mohd Rafi Ravi Ravi & Ali

We must go back to the early years of Rafi-Ravi association to reach “Mehendi’ 1958. This is a recital by Rafi sahab of a poetry titled ‘Baazaar-e-husn’ by Kaamil Rashid. Ajit is reciting this nazm in the movie on a Kotha, presumably of Umrao Jaan. This movie Mahendi 1958 was based on a novel “Umrao Jaan Ada” (1904) authored by Mirza Hadi Ruswa. The other two movies named “Umrao Jaan’ were based on the same novel. This is an affirmation of the feeling I had, that it must be based on a novel, while watching ‘Umrao Jaan’ 1981.

This recital is another great rendition, without music, reminding me of the rendition of Unhen qissa e gham jo likhne ko baithhe in ‘Naya Qanoon’(1965) and Kya gham jo andheri hain raaten in ‘Barsaat ki raat’ (1960).

In the movie, this recital happens, then the reply by ‘Umrao Jaan’ in Lata Mangehskar’s voice is posted here bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin. The recital on screen is by an actor named Jayshree, whose identity is not clear. I have seen the posted songs of the film to find if this is the veteran Marathi film actress Jayshree Gadkar. The film’s poster by SaReGaMa has Jayshree Gadkar on it. She has been seen in a few hindi films in later years like “Bahaaron ke Sapne’1967. But there is a question mark if it is the same actor in Mehendi(1958). The cast of the film is Jayashree, Ajit, Veena, Kumar, Baalam, Mirza Musharraf, Lalita Pawar, Baby Devika, Adib, Ismail, Prakash, Jago, Maqbool, Krishnakant, Munshi Munakka, Hamid – I, Dinanath, Anwari Bai, Qaisarbai, & Mumtaz Begum.

These four songs of the film are posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Apne kiye pe koyi pashemaan ho gayaa 21 december 2009
Bedard zamaana tera dushman hai 26 december 2009
Pyaar ki duniya lutegi hamen maaloom na thhaa 11 may 2012
Bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin 22 may 2012

I had come accross long-time back and all these years I was under the impression that there is this song by Rafi, a recital filmed on Ajit, and it is already posted. Then last month I found this song and saved the link for having it in this series, as it was not posted. For last two weeks, I have not worked on any posts, but it was there on the back of the mind, that some of these wonderful songs are saved in my drafts and I need to get on with it. Finally, yesterday I opened the laptop, with this very song on the mind, and lo, there it was in one of the comments that the recital is not posted.
The question/grievance/complaint is here now, the answer to it was here already.
Editor’s note:-This song is the 500th song from movies of 1958 to appear in the blog.

“Man Ka Meet” (1968) was produced by Sunil Dutt and directed by A Subba Rao for Ajanta Arts Production, Bombay. The movie had Som Dutt, Leena Chandavarkar, Vinod Khanna, Om Prakash, Rajendra Nath, Anwar, Jeevan, Achala Sachdev, Sandhya Rani etc in it.

The movie, which was used as a launch vehicle for Som Dutt (brother of Sunil Dutt), instead helped launch the career of Vinod Khanna, who was another debutant, who played the villain in the movie.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Man Ka Meet” (1968) to appear in the blog. This song is a get together dance performance song. The picturisatin shows Som Dutt lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice while a cabarat dance is being performed by Helen look alike dancer Madhumati (I guess). I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. Almost the entire star cast of the movie is watching the performance. We can identify Vinod Khanna, Anwar Hussain, Om Prakash, Leena Chandawarkar, Shammi Aunty etc among the audience. The audience finds the song so melodious that they start dancing towards the end of the song.

Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

This song is the 300th song from movies released in 1968. Movies released in this year had 458 songs. So another 158 movie songs from this year remain to be covered in the blog.
