Mukesh and his Composers – 13
——————————–

What is common to Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra, Hemant Kumar, Usha Khanna etc ? Well, apart from being successful composers, they were also good playback singers. There are many other names in this category such as SD Burman, Chitragupt, and Ravi etc.

Mukesh and his co-singers – 2
—————————————-
Talat Mahmood and Mukesh remained the best of friends till the latter departed for another world in August 1976. It gives me immense pleasure to present this second post in the series Mukesh and his co-singers featuring another of my all-time favourite singer.

Welcome to all readers to the 126th century on the blog. Yes, we now have 12,600 songs on board with this post.

It’s now customary to have a special post or a song on such occasions. The last one saw a bundle of century celebrations in a single post. This time however it will be different in the sense that the highlight will be on the song itself and its historic importance rather than other aspects.

Mukesh and his Composers – 12
—————————————–
Mukesh singing a light-hearted peppy number and none other than Bharat Bhusan dancing a few steps to the tune; the combination of such a scene is extremely rare in hindi cinema, knowing the songs that the singer has mainly sung and the roles the actor has played. We shall discuss more about this rare occurance a little later.

There have been quite a few Ghulam Mohammed compositions posted on the blog in the last few days. Any additions of such great but under-rated composers is always a cause of pleasure. I say un-rated because apart from his most remembered Mirza Ghalib (1954) and a rather un-finished Pakeezah(1971), Ghulam Mohammed’s immense talent remains largely unappreciated. It’s another matter that he himself was also to be blamed for remaining behind the curtains of Naushad’s much celebrated successes. It’s no surprise that not much information is available on him. There are not even many photographs of the great composer. However I did find this blog with a very fair and detailed description of his life and works. The importance of his talent can be measured with this line from the same article about his Pakeezah compositions.

Mukesh and his Composers – 11a
———————————-
The last post on this series dealt with the non-film songs sung by Mukesh for Ravindra Jain. That was nearly five months back. Some personal and professional matters crept in resulting in the inordinate delay. Though there was enough time for a few posts, the procrastinator in me kept on scoring small victories resulting in the holdup.

It’s been a while since we had a song in this voice. A voice which momentarily transforms us to another world. A voice so gentle and sweet that we invariably pause, ponder and are awestruck by the rendering. The total numbers are in three digits only. The genres of songs are also very restricted. But whatever is available will be cherished forever since the class of singing was always uncompromising.
