Mukesh and his Composers – 22
——————————–

We pay tributes to legendary singer Mukesh on his Remembrance Day today (22 July 1923 – 27 August 1976). His voice, songs, and the rich legacy left behind continues to be remembered and cherished by fans across the globe.

February 12, 1982, Music Director’s Association had organized a programme at Mumbai’s Shanmukhananda Auditorium to celebrate 50 years of sound in Indian Cinema. Off course, the mega event is now also fondly remembered for Noor Jahan’s only travel from across the border after partition and her active participation in it.

In the programme, anchor Shabana Azmi, while introducing the life and singing career of Mukesh says that for having such pathos and honestly in the voice, it is necessary that apart from being a good singer, the person himself has to be a noble soul. I liked her description of Mukesh immensely and hence including it in his special post for the day. This nobility of Mukesh and his good deeds for society and his co-workers, has been mentioned in quite a few of my previous posts.
For adherent Mukesh fans, it very easy to pick a sample of their most favorite songs for the simple reason that there exists no sample and his entire body of thousand odd songs can be counted as best loved.

Continuing the series on Mukesh and his composers, I take up his association with composer Dattaram.
We all know that Dattaram was one of the main pillars on which the empire of Shanker Jaikishen stood and flourished. He worked for SJ camp almost all of his career but also had several opportunities to compose on his own name in many of the films. It is now an established fact that he could not come out of the shadows of SJ completely in spite of being immensely talented and hard working.

The curious cases of Dattaram and another favourite of mine Ghulam Mohammed intrigues me to no end. They had everything in them to create name and fame for themselves, but it appears they were too reluctant to venture out on their own to a far extent.

There are many videos, interviews, articles and blogs available on the web for the works of Datttaram and I am skipping referring the same.
Below is the table of collaboration of works of Mukesh with the composer.

An interesting fact on initial glance reveals that two prominent names of SJ camp are missing. Lyricist Shailendra and singer Lata. Off course, both have worked for Dattaram but when we filter Mukesh songs, we find them missing.

Again, what should I write about the songs enlisted below. Its signature Mukesh all the way starting with the immortal “aansoo bhari hain”. This song will forever remain an indisputable proof of the wonders the voice could create in lower tones of pathos songs with or without instruments. It was 1958 and Mukesh had just come out the clutches of his failed experiments and he grasped the year with all his might and went on to become Mighty Mukesh.

A cursory glance through the second column in the table below brings to the mind several memories of humming these songs. And, for obvious reasons, I again skip describing each of the songs.

Needless to say, I have again relied on the highly reliable Mukesh Geetkosh by Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji and thank him for the same.

S.No Name of the song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 Aansoo bhari hain Parwarish (1958) Hasrat Jaipuri
2 Dil ne usey maan liya (Happy and Sad version) Santaan (1959) Hasrat Jaipuri
3 Dil dhoondhtaa hai Kaala Aadmi (1960) Hasrat Jaipuri
4 Ae dil dekhe hain humne Shreemaan Satyawaadi (1960) Hasrat Jaipuri
5 Ik baat kahoon wallaah Shreemaan Satyawaadi (1960) Mahendra Kapoor, Suman Kalyanpur Gulzar
6 Haal e dil hamaara Shreemaan Satyawaadi (1960) Hasrat Jaipuri
7 Rut albeli mast samaan Shreemaan Satyawaadi (1960) Gulzar
8 Maano ya na maano First Love (1961) Suman Kalyanpur Gulshan Baawra
9 Mere pyaar mein ya wafa First Love (1961) Gulshan Baawra
10 Mujhe mil gayi hai First Love (1961) Gulshan Baawra
11 Kabhi kisi ki khushiyaan Zindagi aur Khwaab (1961) Kavi Pradeep
12 Ae meri jaane wafaa Neeli Aankhen (1962) Gulshan Baawra
13 More Mann Mitwa Suna Morey Man Mitwaa (1965) Suman Kalyanpur Harishchandra Priyadarshi
14 Dekhi teri duniyaa arre Farishta (1968) Asad Bhopali

The duo worked together for 14 songs of which 13 are already represented on the blog and is yet another proof regarding their popularity. One duet with Suman Kalyanpur remains to be covered and is the song under consideration for the post. This duet is from a 1965 movie, Morey Man Mitwa, a Magadhi language film. The producer and director of the film are R. D. Bansal and Girish Ranjan respectively.

A chirpy and hummable love song, I am sure readers will like it on first listening.

07/10/2020 – 79th Birthday of Usha Khanna
———————————————————————–

We are celebrating the 79th birthday of Usha Khanna, the only female music director, shall we say with a sizable films and number of songs to her credit. Ameerbai Karnataki is the other female composer I can think of. This field as some technical fields in the film industry has been dominated by males. The reasons for this could be socio-political. As the musicians were mostly men, so it is understandable. Like I said the technical side is dominated by males in this industry. There are very few female director’s also. No cinematographers that I have heard of, recently if someone has entered the fray I don’t know.

Usha Khanna’s career statistics are impressive, better than even major well known music composers. Imdb is listing 141 films from 1959 to 2016, that is five and half decades.

In my Vinod Khanna post yesterday, I said that the film “Muqaddar ka Sikandar” is missing in the filmography at imdb. I didn’t look close enough, it appears. Peevesie’s Mom informed me that it is very much there in the list but as “Conqueror of destiny”. Imdb is giving the names of hindi film in English translation. The two of us had fun translating some of the names of Vinod Khanna’s films, which imdb had left as it is.

As Usha Khanna’s filmography is untouched by this translation bug, I am trying my hand at it :

1. Dil deke dekho : Give your heart then see for yourself. (That’s full sentence)
2. Hum Hindustani : We Indians (That was easy)
3. Awara Baadal : Wayward cloud
4. Shabnam : Dew
5. Aao pyar Karen : Let’s fall in Love
6. Nishan : sign
7. Faisla : Decision
8. Ek Sapera Ek Lutera : A snake charmer and a robber
9. Main wohi hoon : Yes, that’s me.
10. Lal Bangla : Red Bungalow
11. Insaaf : Justice
12. Raat Andheri thhi : It was a dark night.
13. Chaand par chadhayee : Let’s move to the moon.
14. Woh koyi aur hogaa : That maybe someone else.
15. Aag : Fire
16. Pehle paisa phir bhagwan: Show me the money, then God
17. Khoj : Search
18. Behroopiya : The interloper
19. Ek Paheli : A riddle.
20. Nateeja : The result
21. Sau saal beet gaye : 100 years later
22. Bandish : The restriction
23. Ilzaam : Accusation
24. Ek phool ek bhool : A flower and a mistake.
25. Begunaah : Not guilty
26. Deedar : The view

So on and so forth, this is enough I think.

About the movie Alibaba and 40 thieves(1966) I have written some things in this post of a song from Alibaba chaalis chor (1954).

The stats page of the blog shows that she has composed 973 songs, and only 223 are posted so far. That is less than 25% of the total song composed by the one of the most prolific music directors of the golden era of hindi film music and later. My own tally is 4 posts of Usha Khanna’s songs, posted by me so far, including the present post. The blog also has 37 songs sung by Usha Khanna.

The present song is from the film Alibaba and forty thieves (1966). The composer is Usha Khanna. There are two lyricist credited with writing this song, namely Prem Dhawan and Javed Anwar. Javed Anwar is the pen name used by her father Manoharlal Khanna, for writing ghazals and film songs for her.

Three songs from the film are posted in the blog :

Song Date posted
Mere khayaalon ka tu hi khuda (Alibaba and forty thieves) 23 October 2011
Ham tere charaagh hain jalaaye jaa bujhaaye jaa (Alibaba and forty thieves) 29 January 2015
Dekhiye zara pyaar se kyun khafa ho dildaar se (Alibaba and forty thieves) 14 January 2020

The singers are Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur, singing for Sanjeev Kumar and L. Vijayalaxmi. The song is a sweet romantic song picturised in colourful sets. Actually I saw a few songs of this movie today. I am trying to find an old song where, the slaves are being sold in the market and one female is singing a song, calling out for rescue. I vaguely remember such a song having seen in “Chhayageet” on TV. Since the TV used to be black n white, the colour songs are also remembered in black n while. I did not find the song I am looking for. It could be anywhere as I know only the situation. It’s like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.

“Mahasati Behula”(1964) was directed by Shanti Kumar for Adarshlok, Bombay. The movie had Mahipal, Jaimala, Lalita Pawar, Niranjan Sharma, Ulhas, Mridula etc in it.

This by now forgotten mythological movie had nine songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Today (5 July 2020) is the 38th remembrance day of Bharat Vyas (6 January 1918-5 July 1982 ). As a tribute to this legendary lyricist, who worked mostly in mythological movies, here is another song from “Mahasati Behula”(1964).

Like the first song, this song too is a duet which is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Mukesh. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Shivram.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is that this song is picturised on Mahipal and Jaimala.

This song mentions “poonam ka chaand” and that makes this song a topical song, seeing that today is poornima (guru poornima). In addition, today this poonam ka chaand is also figuring in a chandragrahan, the third chandragrahan for the year 2020.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Chamke chaand poonam ka
Chhalke pyaar shabnam ka
Hum tum sang jab milte
Badle rang mausam ka

Chamke chaand poonam ka
Chhalke pyaar shabnam ka
Aa aa aa

Do man magan jab naache
Pariyon ke ghunghar baaje

Priyatam mere rang raache
Sapne hue sab saanche
Ghunghat
Aa aa aa aa aa
Ghunghat ude resham ka
Chhalke pyaar shabnam ka
Hum tum sang jab milte
Badle rang mausam ka

Chamke chaand poonam ka
Chhalke pyaar shabnam ka
Aa aa aa aa aa
Hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm

Jab tak hain chaand sitaare
Honge nahin hum nyaare
Ganga ki hum lehren hain
Jamuna ke hum hain kinaare
Sangam
Aa aa aa aa

Sangam hai apne milan ka
Chhalke pyaar shabnam ka
Hum tum sang jab milte
Badle rang mausam ka

Chamke chaand poonam ka
Chhalke pyaar shabnam ka
Aa aa aa aa aa
Hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm

Sapnon mein tum ho chhaaye
Dhadkan mein tum hi samaaye
Duniya ne jaal bichhaaye
Hum tum bichhad na paaye

Goonje
Aa aa aa aa aa aa
Goonje geet sargam ka
Chhalke pyaar shabnam ka
Hum tum sang jab milte
Badle rang mausam ka

Chamke chaand poonam ka
Chhalke pyaar shabnam ka

In our day to day life we face some or the other discomforting and problematic situations, most of which get sorted out over time. The end of such situations is the beginning of happiness.

One of the discomforting situations which I have started facing in the post- retirement years is that I suddenly remember the tune of a song which I had heard quite often in my younger days on the radio but I am not able to recall the wordings or other details. I become restless until I find the song. It is by chance that I get to listen to the song on YT or on the Blog after months. And the pleasure I get in solving this kind of ‘puzzle’ is akin to attaining nirvana.

Mention of RK Films brings to mind the unbroken partnership of 22 long years between the music director duo of Shankar Jaikishan and the songwriters Shialnedra and Hasrat Jaipuri.  Starting from ‘Barsaat’ in 1949, and all the way up to ‘Mera Naam Joker’ in 1971, this quartet ruled the music and songs at RK Films, collaborating for every RK film produced during this period (with the exception of Shailendra, who passed away in 1966).

Remembering Hasrat Jaipuri on the anniversary of his birth today (15th April).
