The Voice of Mukesh #20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
We are discussing songs sung by Mukesh, in the year 1947. In this year, the film ‘Do Dil’ was a veritable bonanza for Mukesh, with the music director Pt. Gobindram getting Mukesh to sing for as many as six songs. Three of these songs are solo, and three duets. On this blog, we have already posted the three solo songs, and two of the duets (with Suraiyyaa). Here is the third duet, and the sixth Mukesh song from this film. The accompanying voice in this song is that of Rajkumari.

“Hanste Aansoo” (1950) was one of the first Hindi movies to get an Adult certificate from the censors. The reasons for getting A certificate those days used to be quite flimsy. For instance, “Barsaat” (1949) had become the first Hindi movie to get an A certificate. The reason why censors were provoked thus was that the female actors in the movies, viz Nargis, Nimmi etc are shown without dupattas and in one song there is even the talk of dupatta flying away in the breeze, viz. Hawa me udta jaaye mora laal dupatta malmal ka. 🙂 And the censors were righteously indignant about all this. 🙂

When “Neki aur Badi” (1949), the first movie of Roshan as a music director flopped, the sensitive music director was so disappointed that he reportedly wanted to commit suicide. Kidar Sharma, who gave him his first break, gave him his second break too, in “Baawre Nain” (1950). The songs of this movie became popular and Roshan, as they say, never looked back since.
