zamaanaa bade shauq se sun raha tha
hameen so gaye daastaan kehte kehte
hameen so gaye

Today is the remembrance day of legendary singer Mukesh. (23 July 1922 to 27 August 1976).

“Each word from his lips was a pearl. No one could sing the way Mukesh did, with the right diction, inflexion and intonation. His vocal timbre was out of this world.”

These are the words of composer Salil Choudhary in praise of the voice of Mukesh.

There are many die-hard fans of Mukesh and his tribe swears by him. To hear his voice, is to understand the world around us in its purest form. For his voice represents truth, purity, honesty and it was sung straight from the deepest portions of his heart. A soothing voice to the disheartened, God’s own voice in his bhajans, optimism in his patriotic songs, true love in romantic numbers, and moreover the voice of the greatest showman our country has ever seen, the voice of Mukesh will remain an inseparable chapter in the annals of HFM.

Jaane Kahaan Gaye Wo Din” (‘Mera Naam Joker’, 1970) was sung as if a lifeless body was screeching for the injustices it had been subjected to. The more one hears this song in solitary confinements, the more one wonders how a playback singer could emulate the character with such authentic despondency.

Dost Dost Na Raha” (‘Sangam’, 1964) portrays the entire film in 3 minutes. It’s the voice which gives potency to the emotional expressions of all the three characters involved.

Listen to “Ramaiyya Vastavaiya” (‘Shri 420’, 1955) and “Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya” (‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’, 1966). The voice that appears late in the songs, makes one to sit up and take notice.

Kisi Ki Muskuraahaton Pe Ho Nisar” (‘Anaari’, 1959) , “Haal e Dil Hamara” (‘Shriman Satyawadi’, 1960),  and “Chhodo Kal Ki Baaten Kal Ki Baat Puraani” (‘Hum Hindustani’, 1960) etc. brim with confidence and instil optimism in the minds of the listeners.

Kahin Door Jab Din Dhal Jaaye” (‘Anand’, 1970) explains the loneliness of the actor, even though the whole film is about his lively nature and knowing very well that it’s the dusk of his life.

It would not be an exaggeration to say for the film ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ (1976), the title song sung by Mukesh is what continues to remain in public memory after all these years.

OP Nayyar, who used Mukesh sparingly, just for less than half a dozen songs, reluctantly gave his only solo to the singer in ‘Sambandh’ (1969) for a background song during the rolling of titles. Today, what remains of the film is the song “Chal Akela, Chal Akela, Chal Akela”.

The list of such impeccable playback sounds rendered to the character’s portrayal on the screen is quite long and almost seems to be endless. Each song, a perfect gem, sung with utmost sincerity and humility.

Today, I bring to the music lovers, a NFS, again the voice articulating melancholy, the virtue for which Mukesh will remain unforgettable.

aabaad raho mere dil ko jalaane waale
tum shaad raho meri hasti mitaane waale

May you be and remain well settled
O the one who has burnt my heart to cinders
May you be ever cheerful and happy
O the one who has erased my very being and existence
[Notes: shaad = happy, cheerful;
hasti = being, existence]

aana kabhi turbat pe do aansoo bahaane ko
teere e nazar se khoon ke dariya bahaane waale

Pray that you may visit my grave sometime, some day
And shed just a drop of tear (for me)
O the one who has shed rivers of blood
With the arrows of glances
[Notes: turbat = grave, earth]

shama bhi jala dena mere mazaar pe tum
har dam hi aashiqon ke dil ko jalaane waale

May you light a lamp
When you come visiting my burial crypt
O the one who has always lit the fires
To burn the hearts of the admirers
[Notes: shamma = lamp, light
mazaar = tomb, masoleum
aashiq = lover, admirer]

Mukesh and his co-singers – 4
————————————————

A song recorded and composed by Roshan in 1950, was the topic of discussion on a TV program nearly 5 decades later. The singer (judge on the show) was requested by none other than Anil Biswas, to sing a few lines of the famous song. The specific reference was to the word “ib” in the song “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re Ib Kyaa Hoga” from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950). She rendered the song in an effortless manner without any background music. It is difficult to believe that she could sing so well at the spur of the moment.

Her career was cut short for various reasons. She has given quite a few interviews and when asked to sing few lines was always so very melodious in spite of her old age. Yes, I am talking about Rajkumari Dubey.

Here is her mini-biography, aptly written by Shri Sadanandji and with comments added by our Arun Kumar ji. I am also herewith providing the link to her wiki-page.

Many singers such as Suraiyya, Shamshad Begum, Amirbai Karnataki, Geeta Dutt et al may not be the most favourite singer of music lovers. But, there is no doubt whatsoever that such singers are always held in high esteem, because, whatever few songs they sang, remain classic, as most of them were sung in the golden era when music was given utmost importance. Rajkumari for sure is one such gifted singer.

Of the many songs sung by her and liked by me, “Main Wo Dulhan Hoon Raas Na Aaya Jise Singaar” from ‘Mahal’ (1949) tops the list. Rajkumari has sung quite a few memorable songs in the film, but the tsunami caused by Lata with her solos, unfortunately never allowed Rajkumari to come to the fore.

For this post, I bring to the readers, her duets with Mukesh. There are 8 of them in total as listed below and also confirmed by Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji. I am thankful to him for his ever-ready attitude to help me with this series.

7 out of the 8 songs are already posted on the blog. I have given the respective links of the 7 songs in the table, in case anyone wants to enjoy all the songs of the two singers. It’s interesting to note, that out of the 8 songs, 4 have been composed by Snehal Bhatkar and as many as 5 written by Kidar Sharma.

Again, I suppose, it’s the duet from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950), which most people would remember, and associate with this pair of singers. There is excellent restraint and comfort amongst the singers in delivering this duet. It is definitely one of the first question-answer type of songs. But then, I cannot confirm if it’s the very first.

The duets from ‘Thhes’ (1949) are also often played on Radio Ceylon. I am very fond of Ghulam Mohammed’s compositions and the one from ‘Hanste Aansoo’ (1950) is a personal favourite. Needless to say and as often said in this series, the numbers could have been much more. But unfortunately, we find that the duets of Mukesh with such vintage era singers do not even touch the two figure mark.

Today’s duet is of a more recent discovery in the sense that it does not figure in Mukesh Geet Kosh. Two songs from this film ‘Ram Darshan’ (1950) have been posted on the blog. Both the songs are solos sung by Mukesh and posted by our Sudhir ji.

There are some 16 songs in this film. With this post, 3 of them will be posted. A couple of more songs from the movie (one sung by Manna Dey) are available on the internet. So out of the remaining 10-11 songs, are there any other Mukesh numbers that are yet to be traced? Even though it seems very unlikely, anything new discovered pertaining to the voice of Mukesh will always be welcome news. Interestingly, Cineplot website has not included the duet of this post, but speaks of another song from the film titled “Ram Ram Ram Ram…Ho Moree Mann”. I have sought clarifications or any other info which Shri Harish ji may be having and will keep the feedback posted.

Here is the third song from the movie to be posted on the blog; a duet which Mukesh has sung with Rajkumari. My next short post will be on 27th August and will be a stand-alone song (not featuring in either of my two series).

 

Name of song Movie (year) Music Director Lyricist

Mujhe Sach Sach Bataa Do Baawre Nain (1950) Roshan Kidar Sharma
Sakhi Ri Mo Se Rooth Gayo Ri Mero Shyam Ram Darshan (1950) Rij Ram-Balmukand Ramesh Gupta

[Ed Note: In my opinion, Cineplot has correctly identified this song, as the song no. 7 listed for this film, in the Geet Kosh. Clearly, at the time of publication of volume 2 of the Geet Kosh, the information about the singers of this song was not available. And hence, this song did not get included in the Mukesh Geet Kosh. Later, when the actual gramophone record of this song was traced, the voices of the singers were identified. But it also created a discrepancy, regarding the leading lines of this song. The song, as heard on the gramophone record, starts with the words “rooth gayo ri mero shyam“. Whereas the song listed in the Geet Kosh starts with the words “Ram – 8, Ho Morey Mann Kab Sumroge Ram, Rooth Gayo Ri”.

As we scan the lyrics of the song, we find that the line “Ho Morey Mann Kab Sumroge Ram” appears almost midway in the song, in the voice of Mukesh. That gives us a clue. It is likely that the song as appearing in the film, (and also as listed in the information booklet of the film) starts in the voice of Mukesh, uttering the name of Lord Ram, and then saying the line “Ho Morey Mann Kab Sumroge Ram”. Then the voice of Rajkumari takes over with the words “Rooth Gayo Ri. . .”. However, on the gramophone record, the leading words in the voice of Mukesh have been omitted, and the song starts directly with the lines sung by Rajkumari. It is clear from the words in the song that the male protagonist has gone away seeking solace in the name of Lord Ram, in his quest for ‘Ram Darshan’. The female protagonist is obviously waiting and pining for him to come back. The male person is seeking Lord Ram, and the female person is seeking her beloved, using the name of Shyam (Lord Krishna).

If we agree with this explanation, then the music director for this song is identified as the duo of Rij Ram-Balmukand. As I scan the songs posted on the blog, I find that this the first time this music director’s name is appearing here. So this is a debut song for this music director duo. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please add more information about this music director duo.]

Song – Sakhi Ri Mo Se Rooth Gayo Ri Mero Shyam  (Ram Darshan) (1950) Singer – Rajkumari, Mukesh, Lyrics – Ramesh Gupta, MD – Rij Ram-Balmukand

Mukesh and his Composers – 14
——————————————–

As we celebrate seven decades of freedom, patriotic songs continue to eulogize the glories of our nation. These songs have always had a special place in the hearts of all Indians. During the good old days of DD, many such songs were played throughout the day on such occasions. One of the very common songs that was invariably played was the Mukesh number “Chhodo Kal Ki Baaten” from the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ (1960). Coming from the baton of Usha Khanna in her second film as a composer, the song was sung with much gusto by Mukesh. The other famous song by Mukesh in this genre is obviously the title song from ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960).

However a lesser known fact is that Mukesh sang nearly 20 film and non-film patriotic songs. The very first duet that Mukesh sang with Lata Mangeshkar – “Ab Darne Ki Koi Baat Nahin Hai” (from ‘Majboor’, 1948) as well as GeetaDutt – “Watan Ki Maati Haath Mein Le Kar” (from ‘Gaon’, 1947), are both patriotic songs.

Amongst his other patriotic songs, Atulji posted “Na Koi Raha Hai Na Koi Rahege” (from ‘Johar Mehmood in Goa’, 1965) a few weeks back.

The iconic song “Mera Rang De Basanti Chola” has been sung by many singers at different times. Mukesh too is involved in one of the versions from the film Shaheed (1965) which he sings along with Mahendra Kapoor, and Rajendra Mehta.

There are about a dozen more songs of Mukesh in the patriotic category and quite a few of them are yet to be posted. Since the list may not be complete and also as the other songs are not too well known, I will desist myself from making a list of all his patriotic songs at this stage.

However, as a regular feature in this series, a tabular column is always in order. Following is the list of the songs composed by Ram Ganguly, and sung by Mukesh.

S.No Name of Song Movie
(Year of release)
Co singer
(if any)
Lyricist
1 Raat ko ji haay raat ko ji Aag (1948) Shamshad Begum Majrooh Sultanpuri
2 Rab mere araj sun meri Aag (1948) Sailesh Mukherji Saraswati Kumar Deepak
3 Zinda hoon is tarah Aag (1948) Behzad Lucknowi
4 Aazad ho gaya Jalsa (1948) Ramesh Gupta

Aag (1948). As we are all well aware, this was the directorial debut of Raj Kapoor and Ram Ganguly had scored the music for the film. Some misunderstanding between the director and the composer resulted in a phenomenon called Shanker-Jaikishen. Rest as they say, is history.

Personally, for me, the music of ‘Aag’ is altogether on a different platform. There is something captivating in the compositions. I often listen to the songs from this movie, each time savouring the music.

The career of Ram Ganguly after ‘Aag’ was not a smooth ride. There were hardly any films that were musically successful. I was wondering if any of our more knowledgeable contributors have written a post on the life and career of the composer. And as expected, I found this post, aptly written by one of the most suitable persons to do so.

The two most famous songs of Ram Ganguly after his ‘Aag’ score are probably from ‘Gawaiyya’ (1954). The songs Aise Toote Taar Ke Mere Geet Adhoore Reh Gaye and Teri Yaad Ka Deepak Jaltaa Hai, once again bring to mind the velvet voiced memories of Talat Mehmood.

Coming to this post and the song in particular, it is a recently discovered song as it is not listed in Mukesh Geet Kosh. It is listed in the main Hindi Film Geet Kosh, but at the time of publication of volume 2 of HFGK, the detailed information of this song was not available. A patriotic song sung by Mukesh along with chorus, the song was recorded for ‘Jalsa’ (1948). From the Geet Kosh listings, it seems that a song with the same or a similar title is also included in the film ‘Desh Sewa’, also from 1948. I request for more clarifications and details about this re-use of the song by more knowledgeable readers.

It seems Ram Ganguly too did not use the voice of Mukesh in any of his films after ‘Jalsa’. The tally stands at 04 as listed above. There are some 18 songs in Jalsa (1948). One song has already been represented on the blog. It will be nothing short of a miracle if any of the remaining songs from Jalsa have the voice of Mukesh as he was one of the most sought-after playback singers during the time.

I thank Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for helping me with confirming with the short list of all Mukesh songs under Ram Ganguly.

Before, I conclude the post; I just want to inform readers that the next post will be in my other series, with another recently discovered song, the hint as regards to the co-singer being “what will happen now”.

I take this opportunity to wish one and all, a very happy independence day.

Jai Hind.

It was a surprise for many – when the Mukesh Geet Kosh was published (in 1985), and the compilation, at that time, was able to list less than a thousand songs in all – filmi, non filmi, other languages all combined. It was a general impression carried amongst the fans that well, yes, Mukesh has not sung as many songs as Rafi Sb, but then, less than thousand?? And then, it became a new topic to write about and discuss – why is it so that the impression is that Mukesh has recorded a lot many more songs than are popularly known.

The voice of Mukesh continues to enthral the world of music. Today (22 July) is his birth anniversary and I present here a short song from the film ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960). This film has already been Yippeee’d on the blog, but this particular rendition can as well be taken as an additional separate song.

Today (22 july 2017) is the birth anniversary of our beloved singer, Mukesh Chand Mathur, better known to one and all as Mukesh (22 july 1923-27 august 1976).

I don’t recall if I have written a tribute to him yet on this blog – I think I might have. But even so, there are no rules here saying I cannot write another one. 🙂  And since I have several fond memories of listening to Mukesh songs in my life, I am happy to use this occasion to remember him and pay my humble tribute to him.

Several years ago, I read a tale that made my blood boil. It was about a 96 year old lady, whose palatial house was snatched away forcibly from her by greedy land grabbers and she was forced to stay in the servant quarters of her own prime property. She was no ordinary lady either. she was the first female IAS officer of India.

When media got wind of this fact, the people who had usurped her property hurriedly brought her back to the mansion to “prove” to the media that she was very much the “owner” of her property.

Law abiding people earn some amount for their living and then try to live within them. Then there are some ambitious people who work hard and improve their earning and rise in economic status. They still live within their earning.

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 8
——————————————————————–

Mukesh and His Co-Singers – 3
—————————————-

The thought had crossed my mind a few months back. To calculate the sum of all the posts of contributors and subtract it from the grand total which would have given the obvious number. A number big enough to just admire, thank and congratulate with high gratitude.
