Sometimes you wonder why a song becomes a huge hit. And at other times, you wonder why a song doesn’t.

Today, as I write this post, I am left to ponder on why this song did not become as huge a hit as, in my opinion, it deserved to. The only explanation I can come up with is that the film tanked badly at the box office. And as we know, many a song has suffered purely because the film itself didn’t do well.

The moment the image of Ameerbai Karnataki comes to my mind, I remember some of her most popular songs, mostly full of pathos, melancholy, and devotion. In fact, the most popular songs of her singing career come from these genres. She started her filmy career in 1934 as an actor-singer but realising that the potential for career as a playback singer was bright after the system of playback singing was introduced in Bombay film industry in 1937, she confined herself mainly to playback singing thereafter. After her songs in ‘Kismet’ (1943) became very popular, for the next five years or so, she remained one of the top playback singers. Of the total of around 375 songs she sang during her filmy career, more than 50% was accounted for during 1943-48.

It is a well-known fact that the singing career of Suman Kalyanpur in Hindi film industry remained under the shadow of Lata Mangeshkar mainly because many in the Hindi film industry felt that her voice was too close to that of Lata Mangeshkar. When Suman Kalyanpur started her playback singing career in 1954, Lata Mangeshkar was already well established in Hindi films. When the choice came for the music directors between the two, producers and/or distributors would pressurize music directors to engage Lata Mangeshkar as her songs were more saleable than that of the new comers. There could be some other reasons also which stunted her career path.

Though I have been discussing six to seven songs a day everyday for the last five days, I found myself at a strange dilemma. Most of the songs discussed on the day are decided at the spur of the moment by me in the morning (some on the last evening). But today, I found myself stumbling against songs that I found truly special and outstanding. They were songs that deserved special writeups and special occasions. And if I devote time to write special writeups for them, I will run out of time that I need to post my target number of songs for the day.

Today’s song is from the film Daaka-59. The film was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt and its music was by Chitragupta – one of the very few composers in films to make melodious tunes in almost every film. According to me, Chitragupta, along with Hansraj Behl, Khemchand Prakash and Ravi, formed a quartet of composers, who had tremendous talents and who made melodious music in almost every film that they were associated with !
