Blog Day : 3592 Post No. : 14344

Today is the birth anniversary of playback singer Madhubala Jhaveri. She was born this day in 1935.

Madhubala was born into a musically inclined family of renowned artists. Her mother, Smt Hirabai Jhaveri and her aunt Smt Sharmila Margaonkar, were both well known singers, and often performed on All India Radio. Although brought up in an atmosphere of music, she was initially not inclined to pursue it as a career. In fact after her matriculation, she joined the JJ School of Arts, deciding for herself that the devotion and time required for classical music training was not what she wanted. But the fate had planned otherwise. In a chance encounter, music director Hansraj Behl heard her sing in a private gathering, and was immediately attracted to her voice. He was searching for a new voice to sing for him in his upcoming film ‘Apni Izzat’ (1952). He invited her to sing for this film.

Her debut was very impressive, and the industry immediately took notice of her. It is said that at that time, the refrain that was expressed in the media was, that “. . .another Lata has been born”. She had an active singing career during the decade of 1950s, and worked with many mainstream music directors of that era. Her voice was termed as sweet and pleasing, and her diction and articulation was wonderful. However, her voice could not sustain the higher octaves, somewhat limiting her range. Her voice was considered a perfect foil for Talat Mehmood, and she has rendered many memorable duets with him.

Her career faded away in the early 1960s. After a couple of renditions in 1961, we then hear her voice  for one last time in the 1968 film ‘London Express’ (no records available in public domain so far). After being in oblivion for almost four and a half decades, she passed away on Sep 11th in 2013.

The song I have selected for today’s remembrance is a solo from the 1952 film ‘Raajrani Damyanti’. The music is by Avinash Vyas and the words are written by Neelkanth Tiwari.

The film is a mythological offering from the banner of Roopkamal Chitra, Bombay. It is produced by Mahipatrai Shah and Anoop Chand Shah, and is directed by Raje Nene. The main cast of actors includes Nirupa Roy, Trilok Kapoor, Usha Kiran, Vikas, Baby Tabassum, Ratan Kumar, Prakash, Basant Kanse, Shakeela, Shakuntala, Uma Devi, Yashwant Dave, and Ram Singh amongst others.

This song is a lovely expression of a heart in love, inviting the moon and the stars to come and light up the life. The words by Neelkanth Tiwari evoke a very romantic ambience. It is a wonderful pleasure to listen to this song.

There is one word in the second antaraa that I am not able to decipher. I request other readers and friends with keener ears to please help identify the missing word.

Song – Chamak Rahe Taarey  (Raajrani Damyanti) (1952) Singer – Madhubala Jhaveri, Lyrics – Neelkanth Tiwari, MD – Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare

poonam ke chaand
poonam ke chaand muskuraate chalo
meri raaton ko chaandni banaate chalo
poonam ke chaand muskuraate chalo
meri raaton ko chaandni banaate chalo
preet meri aankhon mein aa ke pukaare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare

meethe meethe sapnon ki chhoti si naao
meethe meethe sapnon ki chhoti si naao
chali chal
chali chal tu lehron pe
dhar dhar ke paaon
chali chal tu lehron pe
dhar dhar ke paaon
lehren bhi gaati hain gal bainyaan daale
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare

door mat hona kabhi praanon ke pyaare
door mat hona kabhi praanon ke pyaare
phool hon hamaare
aur charan tumhaare
phool hon hamaare
aur charan tumhaare
bol rahe sarita ke donon kinaare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare
chamak rahe taare
aadhe tumhaare piya
aadhe hamaare

चमक रहे तारे
आधे तुम्हारे पिया
आधे हमारे
चमक रहे तारे
आधे तुम्हारे पिया
आधे हमारे

पूनम के चाँद
पूनम के चाँद मुसकुराते चलो
मेरी रातों को चाँदनी बनाते चलो
पूनम के चाँद मुसकुराते चलो
मेरी रातों को चाँदनी बनाते चलो
प्रीत मेरी आँखों में आके पुकारे
आधे तुम्हारे पिया
आधे हमारे
चमक रहे तारे
आधे तुम्हारे पिया
आधे हमारे

मीठे मीठे सपनों की छोटी सी नाव
मीठे मीठे सपनों की छोटी सी नाव
चली चल
चली चल तू लहरों पे
धर धर के पाँव
चली चल तू लहरों पे
धर धर के पाँव
लहरें भी गाती हैं गल बइंयाँ डाले
आधे तुम्हारे पिया
आधे हमारे
चमक रहे तारे
आधे तुम्हारे पिया
आधे हमारे

दूर मत होना कभी प्राणों के प्यारे
दूर मत होना कभी प्राणों के प्यारे
फूल हों हमारे
और चरण तुम्हारे
फूल हों हमारे
और चरण तुम्हारे
बोल रहे सरिता के दोनों किनारे
आधे तुम्हारे पिया
आधे हमारे
चमक रहे तारे
आधे तुम्हारे पिया
आधे हमारे

In the 1950s, many new female singers joined Hindi film industry to try their luck in making their careers in playback singing. Many of them went into oblivion after a couple of years or so. Playback singing career of a few of them like Seeta Kalyanpur, Suman Purohit ended with one or two films. A few others like Meenal Wagh (11 songs during 1950-54), Kaumudini Munshi (10 songs during 1954-68) could remain connected with Hindi film music for longer period but their singing output was low. While some of them may not have pursued the playback singing career due to personal reasons, there is no doubt about the fact that with the emergence of Lata Mangeshkar in early 50s along with established playback singers like Geeta Dutt and Shamshad Begum, the newcomers faced tough competition from them.

There are certain special words which seem to be favourites of film makers. These are used frequently in the Titles of films that are made. Some of the words I counted are not surprising. The work Ek (or its variations) has the distinction of appearing most frequently in the title of Hindi movies. Some examples for such titles are Ek roz, Ek thi Ladki, Eklavya etc etc. A staggesring 209 number of Hindi movies contain the word “Ek” or its variations !. This is for the period from 1931 to 2012. The next most popular words are Mera/Meri-165 films, Dil- 121 , Pyaar- 108 , Do- 91 , Hum/Ham/Hamara/Hamari – 87, Prem – 68 , Ghar- 51 , Veer – 45 etc etc.

Finding out details is extremely difficult when it comes to forgotten artists of the past. Hardly any information seems to be available about them. and God forbid, if the name of the artist is similar to some well known artist, then your chances of getting any information on that person recede further, because all the information coming at you on search engines is only on the well known person of the similar name.
