Mohammed Rafi : The incomparable – Song No. 01
—————————————————
I think it is time to go back to the pavillion, meaning my comfort zone. Or I should say my favourite comfort zone of Rafi songs. I have been ‘ beating about the bush ‘ for the last one year and writing posts of various series. ‘Chandni raaten’ is still going on, as far as I know. Some songs are lined up for it, but I have not been able to find enough enthusiasm to write a post for some time. So no more ‘beating around the bush’ (this idiom is closer to what I mean by it), going straight to the matter of ‘Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable”

VINTAGE NAUSHAD…..Song No. 2
—————————————–

NAUSHAD started composing independently in 1940. That makes the year 2015, an year of Diamond Jubilee of his Debut. It is therefore appropriate that we take a re-look at his earliest compositions.

The second song in this series is from the film Darshan-1941. It was a social film made by the famous Prakash pictures ( Ramrajya-43 fame ). The film was directed by C.M.Luhar,B.Sc., a very experienced, learned and well known person in film world at that time. The cast was Prem Adeeb, Jyoti, Meera, Bhudo Advani, Nazeer, Madhusudan, Amirbai Karnataki etc.

Today is 31 december 2014, which is the last day of the year. I have no idea if people are on a reflective/ introspective mood on this day or not. Newspapers certainly seem to look back on the year and they tell us about the major events of the year. I have also noticed that people tend to look at the departing year as a forgettable year and hope that the new year would be better, only to express similar sentiments about that year when that year too draws to a close.

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 11

(1976 – Solo)

As I am checking the list of songs from 1976, I find this gem of a ‘naat’ (Islamic religious song) rendered by Rafi Sb. The film is ‘Sangraam’, directed by Harmesh Malhotra. The words are written by Gauhar Kanpuri and the music is by Bhappi Lahiri. ‘Sangraam’ is a film that is not in memory otherwise. The films that I remember from that year are ‘Chitchor’, ‘Hera Pheri’ and ‘Chalte Chalte’. And yes, ‘Fakiraa’ and ‘Dus Numbri’. I remember I had seen ‘Chitchor’ and ‘Hera Pheri’ on the big screen.

THE JOY OF NFS (song No. 5)
———————————

Somewhere in the late 2011, AK ji of Songsofyore, had written on this Blog about the importance of NFS. After reading his views, I too wrote a rather lengthy comment supporting the inclusion of NFS on this Blog. Our contention was that, prior to the Hindi Film Music becoming popular all over India, it was those gazals, Geets and Bhajans, privately sung and recorded by various artists which had ruled the tastes of music lovers. In fact many famous singers had recorded NFS in the beginning phase of their singing careers. Some names are Talat Mehmood, Saigal, Pankaj Mullik, Jagmohan and JUTHIKA ROY !
