Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part V: Year 1951
———————————————————————————————————

This series began in a small way because Lata Mangeshkar had sung very few songs in her earlier years -only nine songs in first two years and 50 songs in the third year.

From her fourth year, viz 1949, Lata Mangeshkar was on her own. She sang 153 songs in 1949 and established her as the new female playback singing sensation of HFM. The next year viz 1950 saw her singing 143 songs.

Now we come to her next decade, viz the decade of 1950s. The first year of the decade, viz 1951 saw Lata Mangeshkar singing as many as 223 songs for Hindi movies that were released in this calender year. This is the highest number of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies released in a calender year. So statistically Lata Mangeshkar touched the peak of her playback career in 1951.

Here are the details of the songs that Lata Mangeshkar sang in HFM in movies that were released in 1951:-

Total 49 movies 24 MDs 187 223 158 52 10 3 37 lyricists

From the table, we see that Lata Mangeshkar gave playback in 49 movies. 98 movies were released that year. So one can say that she got to sing in 50 % of the movies that were released in 1951. She worked with 24 music directors and 37 lyricists. It was in this year that she worked with music directors Madan Mohan, Sudhir Phadke and Roshan for the first time. She also sang the lyrics of Kaifi Azmi, Kidar Sharma, Sahir Ludhianvi and Verma Malik for the first time in this year.

Out of 223 songs that Lata Mangeshkar sang in the year, as many as 187 songs have already been covered in the blog.

“Bhola Shankar”(1951) is alphabetically the first movie of 1951 that has Lata Mangeshkar songs that have not been covered in the blog. “Bhola Shankar”(1951) was directed by Vishraam Bedekar for Famous Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Prem Adeeb, Vijaylaxmi, Mahipal Sheela Naik, Prakash Gupta, Sadhana Bose, Bhagwan, Kamal, Balaram, Ram avtaar, Jyoti, Samant, Raj Kishore, Prem Ratan, Radheshyam etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it, including two Lata solos. Two songs from the movie have been covered.

The movie had two Lata Mangeshkar solos in it. There two songs have not been covered in the past.

Here is one of these songs.

This song is sung by Lata. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snehal Bhatkar. Ss mentioned earlier, Snehal Bhatkar was working with Lata Mangeshkar for the first time.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picurisation of this lesser heard song.

I have not been able to note the lyrics of the song fully to my satisfaction. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Chanda tujhko laaj na aaye (Bhola Shankar)(1951) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Snehal Bhatkar

Lyrics

Chanda aa tujhko laaj na aaye ae
mere chhod piya ka saath
akela
man hi man muskaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
chanda aa

jinki jataaon mein basta tu
aaj arre un bin hansta kyun
door chhupaa kar pran piyaa ko
apna roop dikhaaye chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye ae
mere chhod piya ka saath
akela
man hi man muskaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
chanda aa

sheesh piyaa ke tohe tu pyaara
un bin laage jo angaara
un bin laage jo angaara
roothh gaye mere chandmauli to
tu kyun mukh dikhlaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
mere chhod piya ka saath
akela
man hi man muskaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
chanda aa

saath gagan ganga tere sautin
leti hai mujhse badle gin gin
leti hai mujhse badle gin gin
poochh ise kahin mere piya ka
baithhi na soch(?) chhupaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
meri chhod piya ka saath
akela
man hi man muskaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
chanda aa

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part IV: Overview of the decade 1946-1950
———————————————————————————————————

When Lata Mangeshkar began her playback career in HFM, she got to sing only nine songs in the first two years (1946 and 1947). By the time the decade ended in 1950, her playback career had seemingly reached dizzying heights. In subsequent years and decades, she would scale far higher peaks.

So far, we have discussed yearwise breakup of songs of Lata Mangeshkar from 1946 to 1950. In this episode we will take a pause and review her career from 1946 till 1950, in what was her first decade (out of so many decades) as a playback singer in HFM.

Here is the yearwise summary of her career from 1946 till 1950:

Year Movies Music director Lata song in the blog Lata HFM songs recorded in the year Lata solo songs Male duet Female duet Other songs Lyricists
1946 Three movies Two music directors 4 4 4 0 0 0 Four lyricists
1947 Three movies Three music directors 5 5 3 1 0 1 Three lyricists
1948 17 movies 14 MDs 50 50 37 6 4 3 19 lyricists
1949 38 movies 15 MDs 133 157 103 35 12 7 35 Lyricists
1950 36 movies 15 MDs 111 143 93 32 14 4 40 lyricists
1946 to 1950 97 movies 31 MDs 305 359 240 74 30 15 66 lyricists

From the above, we notice that Lata Mangeshkar had already sung more songs in five years of her fledgling singing career than what several wellknown HFM singer would sing in their entire careers. To put things in perspective, K L Saigal sang less that 150 HFM songs and Suraiyya sang less that 350 songs in HFM.

While the figures of most columns add up in the above table, the number of music directors and lyricists do not add up, because the same music directors and lyricists who worked with Lata Mangeshkar in one year would often work with her repeatedly in future as well. It is interesting to note that she had already worked with 31 Music directors and 66 lyricists within a five year long playback career. Majority of her songs were solo songs, which meant that music directors had full faith in her voice carrying the playback singing of the movie on her shoulders.

Let us now take a look at the music directors who used Lata Mangeshkar’s voice during this period.

Music directors of Lata Mangeshkar from 1946 to 1950
—————————————————–

Those music directors who composed 10 plus songs with Lata Mangeshkar from 1946 to 1950.

Music Director Number of movies Number of songs
Anil Biswas 8 43
C Ramchandra 14 52
Ghulam Mohammad 6 22
Hansraj Bahl 6 17
Khemchand Prakash 3 14
Naushaad 4 19
Pt Govindram 5 14
Shankar Jaikishan 1 10
Shyam Sundar 6 16
Vasant Desai 4 15
Vinod 3 19

Those who composed less than 10 songs with Lata Mangeshkar from 1946 to 1950.

Purushottam 1 1
Ramkrishna Shinde 1 1
S D Burman 1 2
S Mohinder 1 1
Sajjad Hussain 1 2
Wadhwa 1 1

We can see from the above that 50 % of all her songs (175 numbers) were compositions of just four music directors viz. Husnlal Bhagatram, C Ramchandra, Anil Biswas and Ghulam Mohammad. Many music directors who would subsequently use Lata Mangeshkar extensively and create timeless classics with her voice had yet to arrive on the scene.

Similar was the case with lyricists who worked with her. Let us take a look at the lyricists who worked with her during this period.

From the above, we notice that some usual suspects like Rajinder Krishan and Majrooh Sultanpuri had already started working with Lata Mangeshkar by this time. They along with three other lyricists had penned one third (117 songs) of the songs that Lata Mangeshkar had sung by then. We also notice that the number of lyricists that she worked with is about twice the number of music directors that she worked with.

We also notice that the blog contains 305 out of 359 Lata Mangeshkar songs from this period. So we have just over 50 more Lata Mangeshkar songs left to be discussed. Most well known songs have already been covered. These 50 odd songs are likely to be lesser known, and even rare songs.

On this occasion, here is one such song. This song is from “Shaadi Ki Raat”(1950). This movie was directed by Yashwant Pethkar for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. This “social” picture had Geeta Bali, Rehman, Vijaylaxmi, Leela Mishra, Jankidas, Ansari, Shanta Kunwar, Baby Durga, , Anwari Bai, Arun etc in it. The movie had twelve songs in it. Pt Govindram was the music director of the movie, but three of the songs were composed by S Mohinder and one by Aziz Hindi.

Three songs have been covered in the past, but none of them were sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The movie had two Lata Mangeshkar solo songs in it. One was composed by S Mohinder and another by Pt Govindram. Both were rare songs.

Here is one of these songs. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Govindram.

The song is 70 year old, and I listened to it for the first time just now. What a fresh as dew voice it sounds even today !

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part III: 1950
——————————————————————————————

So, we come to the year 1950. Lata Mangeshkar had announced her arrival on HFM scene in 1949. That year also marked the beginning of the golden era of HFM, which lasted till 1980.

Here are the details of the songs that Lata Mangeshkar sang in HFM in movies that were released in 1950:-

Total 36 movies 15 MDs 111 143 93 32 14 4 40 lyricists

Thus we can see that Lata Mangeshkar sang 143 songs under the music direction of 15 Music composers in 1950.

But during those days no one knew what future had in store. If one thinks about it, Geeta Roy was also doing very well. During 1949, she sang 103 songs while Lata Mangeshkar had sung 157 songs 143 songs. In 1950, Geeta Roy sang 166 songs ! More than what Lata Mangeshkar sang in the year ! So, it was Geeta Roy who was ahead of Lata Mangeshkar in 190s in the race for the leading female playback singer of HFM.

Out of 36 movies of 1950, all Lata songs of as many as 20 movies have already been covered. So, only 16 movies of 1950 can be taken up for discussing a Lata song in the blog.

“Apni Chhaayaa”(1950) is alphabetically the first such movie of 1950. This movie was directed by P L Santoshi for Chitralaya Limited, Bombay. This “social” movie had Sulochana Chatterjee, Balwant singh, Radhakishan, Mumtaz Ali, Sajjan, tiwari, Ram Singh, Dulaari, Mona, Neelam, Satyarani, Jawahar Kaul, Bab Raja, Narbada Shankar, Karadkar, Niranjan, Madan singh, Cuckoo etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it, including two Lata songs. Four songs from the movie, including one Lata solo (incorrecly mentioned in HFGK as a Lata Chitalkar duet), namely Andhiyaare ghar mein jyot jali has been covered in the blog.

Here is the second and final Lata song from “Apni Chhaayaa”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Chitalkar. P L Santoshi is the lyricist.

The movie had two music directors, via=z Husnlal Bhagatram Nd Hanuman Prasad. HFGK mentions two songs as Hanuman Prasad composion and is silent about the music directors of other movies. Here I have assumed Husnlal Bhagatram as the music director of the song.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part II: 1948-1949
——————————————————————————————
This series was started last Monday (28 September 2020), which was Lata Mangeshkar’s 91st birthday. The series has the ambitious aim of providing statistics of all HFM songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar-Year by year.

The first part of the series covered Lata Maneshkar HFM songs of 1947 and 1948. That was easy, seeing that the total number of HFM songs sung by her in these two years added upto just nine songs.

1948 saw a change in fortune for her. This time she got to sing a decent number of songs from a decent number of movies. From HFGK, and also by listening to songs of 1948 where no singers were mentioned in HFGK, I have been able to arrive at a figure of exactly 50 songs from 17 movies for Lata Mangehkar in 1948. Here are the details :-

Total 17 movies 14 MDs 50 50 37 6 4 3 19 lyricists

One can see that all songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar according to the above list have already been covered in the blog. I was hoping that I would be able to locate at least one Lata Mangeshkar song undiscussed in the blog for discussion with this writeup, hoping that some songs where singers are not known will turn out to be Lata Mangeshkar songs. We actually discovered some Lata Mangeshkar song this way. For instance, “Asha”(1948) has four Lata Mangeshkar solo songs according to HFGK. But I found out that another song, namely Sajna re tori kaun dagariya is also a Lata Mangeshkar solo song. I also discovered that song number 5 (no singer memtioned) and song numbe 2 (Lata Mangeshkar mentioned as the singer) are one and the same song. So in effect, it turns out that “Asha”(1948) has five Lata Mangeshkar songs, as against four as mentioned in HFGK.

When I checked in “Gandhaar”- which contains a list of all Lata Mangeshkar songs over the years, I find that it mentions a “Mandir”(1948) song as Lata Mangeshkar song. “Mandir”(1948) had 12 songs and HFGK contains no details of singers for any of these songs. Lata Mangeshkar had acted in this movie. According to “Gandhaar”- the song “lo wah aayi nindariya chhup chhup gupchup dhheere” has been sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This song does not appear to be available. This song, if sung by her was most likely picturised on her as well. Unfortunately, neither audio nor video of this song seems to be available on pulic domain as of now.

That forces me to discuss a Lata song of 1949 with this article. But I will have to discuss the Lata Mangeshkar songs of 1949 too in the process. And that is what follows below.

1949 was quite a breakthrough year for Lata Mangeshkar. This year she sang 157 songs from 38 movies. The blog has so far covered 133 of these songs. Here are the details :-

Total 38 movies 15 MDs 133 157 103 35 12 7 35 Lyricists

So we can see that a career that was stuttering for two years began to show promise in 1948 and it recorded a meteoric rise in 1949. 1949 saw the golden era of HFM getting launched which would last till 1980. Golden era of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer also began in 1949, as can be seen from her portfolio of songs in 1949.

Looking at the list of movies in 1949, Lata Mangeshkar sang songs in 38 movies. All Lata Mangeshkar songs of 27 of these movies have already been covered. So we have only 11 movies of 1949 left that give us opportunity to discuss Lata Mangeshkar HFM songs of 1949.

Alphabetically, “Dil Ki Basti”(1949) is the first eligible movie of 1949 which still has a Lata Mangeshkar song left to be discussed. This movie was directed by Wahid Qureshi for Aaina Pictures Bombay. This “social” movie had Nigar, Masood, Urmila, Lalita Pawar, Tiwari, Amar etc in it. There were nine songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

“Dil Ki Basti”(1949) had two Lata Mangeshkar solo songs in it. One song, viz Aag lage jag saara dekhe has been discussed in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar song from “Dil Ki Basti”(1949) to appear in the blog. It is penned by Wahid Qureshi. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part I: 1946-1947

Today (28 september 2020) is the 91st birthday of Swar Samragyi Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 September 1929). We as part of HFM lovers extend her a very happy birthday and wish her many happy returns of the day.

She has been the most influential singer of HFM (and by extension all Indian film music).

A lot has been written on her career and her songs and her life. Instead of joining that race and repeating the already much repeated facts about her, I would take this occasion to stat my discussion of her HF songs yearwise, right from the beginning. So one can see that it is going to be a long series, which may have started on her birthday and it will contunue on and on, and each post will discuss one year. She has been around for more than six decades. It will take me at least 40 posts, may be more to discuss her songs over the years. I plan to publish one article every year. At this rate, this series could take upto one year. But then what is one year for this blog which is going on for more than 12 years !

This writeup, which is part I takes up the years 1946 and 1947. Why two years ? Because this series will discuss a Lata Mangeshkar song from the year under discussion. Lata Mangeshkar made her debut in 1946 but all songs sung by her in 1946 are already covered in the blog. 1947 is the second year for her HFM career. Here just one song sung by her remains undiscussed. So I had to take up the year 1947 as well so that I could discuss a song of the year with the article.

Coming to 1946, here are the details of the songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in HFM in 1946:-

Movie Music director Lata song in the blog Lata HFM songs in the year Lata solo songs Male duet Female duet Other songs Lyricists Song detail
Jeewan Yaatra Vasant Desai 1 1 1 0 0 0 Dewar Sharar Chidiya boley choon choon choon
Sona Chaandi D C Dutt 1 1 1 0 0 0 Wali Sahab Pyaare Bapu ke charnon ki le lo prasann
Subhadra Vasant Desai 2 2 2 0 0 0 Pt Sudarshan (1) Pt Indra (1) Piya aayegaa…gori sudh na bisaar piya aayegaa Pt Indra Chandra
Saanwariya oye baansuriya oye bajaaye gayo re Pt Sudarshan
Total Three movies Two music directors 4 4 4 0 0 0 Four lyricists All solos

The next year 1947, which was an important year for the country saw Lata Mangeshkar faring more or less how she had fared the previous year, as can be seen from the table below :-

Movie Music director Lata song in the blog Lata HFM songs in the year Lata solo songs Male duet Female duet Other songs Lyricists Song detail
Aap Ki Sewa Mein Datta Dawjekar 2 3 3 0 0 0 Mahipal Paa laagoon kar joree re
Ek naye rang mein dooje umang mein
Shaadi Se Pehle Pt Ramakant Paingankar-Karnad 1 1 0 1 0 0 Pt Mukhram Sharma Chalo ho gayi taiyyar Duet with Rafi
Shehnaai C Ramchandra 1 1 0 0 0 1 P L Santoshi Jawaani ki rail chali jaaye re with Chitalkar and Geeta Dutt as co singers
Total Three movies Three music directors 4 5 3 1 0 1 Three lyricists Three solos, plus her first male duet and first multiple singers song

If someone had done an year end analysis of Lata Mangeshkar’s career prospects at the end of 1947, he would have written off her chances as a playback singer. Such an analyst would have lots of facts backing his judgement. Lata Mangeshkar had a thin feeble voice, unlike the buland voices of the predominantly Punjabi female singers of those days. Forget laypersons, even a few studio owners, such as Filmistan’s boss rejected Lata’s voice outright, despite the recommendations of music director like Ghulam Haider. If one had to give opportunities to a new voice, then Geeta Roy showed far more promise. Unlike Lata, who was struggling on family and career fronts, Geeta Roy was getting her breaks almost without much struggle. And her voice was loved by all prominent music directors and movie producers.

So, Lata Mangeshkar did not have it easy in her career. She has faced lots of hardships. She has overcome them all. Moreover, she stood for her rights, took on powerful influential individuals in the induustry and got her way. Not just that, she survived and outlived them all.

Many people, with the benefit of hindsight may think that Lata Mangeshkar had a smooth career in film industry. Not at all. She has survived lots and lots of hardships that would have destroyed lesser mortals. One forgotten fact is that an attempt was made to poison her. It was a tactic that was earlier used against Master Madan in 1940s. Lata Mangeshkar’s enemies had planted a cook in her residence who was slowly poisoning her meals. It was an incident of early 1960s. The matter was detected in time and the cook ran away.

Her detractors accuse her of sabotaging the careers of some of her contemporaries. I think this accusation has an element of exxagaration. Even in the prime of her career, there were lots and lots of movies where she did not sing. She would typically sing songs in 50 odd movies in a year out of 100 odd movies released in that year. If these contemporaries were as good as they thought, they had enough opportunities to get work in the movies where Lata Mangeshkar did not sing. It takes far more than just raw singing ability to get work and get repeated. It takes lots of social networking which Lata Mangeshkar was good at. A few of her contemporaries known to be regarded as her competitors did not possess even a fraction of the networking abilities that Lata and her equally illustrious younger sister Asha Bhonsle possessed.

My observation about Lata Mangeshkar is that she was like an iceberg, and only the tip of her abilities were used in HFM. And even that has resulted into a body of work that is quite formidable.

One can see from the above two tables that Lata Mangeshkar was a struggler for most of the 1940s and she had very little to show for her struggles by the end of 1947. Lots and lots of things happened thereafter. She has the luck and the ability to turn it around spectacularly in the years to come. We will look at these facts in details in the future posts of this series.

It has been mentioned above that all Lata songs of 1946 have been covered in the blog. The table for 1947 shows that one Lata song from 1947 remains uuncovered. The song under discussion is that remaing song.

“Aap Ki Sewa Mein”(1947) was directed by Vasant Joglekar for Chandrma Pictures Bombay. This obscure movie had Dixit, Kesri, Shantarin, Saroj Borkar, Nimbalkar, Smson, D R Gokhale, Bhal Marathe, Vijaya, Baby Nalini etc in it. The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Lata Mangeshkar had sung three solos in the movie. Two of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past.

Here is the third and final Lata solo from “Aap Ki Sewa Mein”(1947) to appear in the blog. The song is penned by Mahipal (later a hero of mythological movies). Music is composed by Datta Davjekar.

Listening to the voice in this song, one can notice the influence of Suraiyya in her voice, who was a leading female playback singer of those days.

With this song, all the Lata Mangeshkar HFM songs of 1947 have now got covered in the blog.

In the next instalment of this series, we will discuss Lata Mangeshkar HFM songs sung by her in Hindi movies released in 1948.
