I had the good fortune of talking over the phone to Shri Srinivas Chary, courtesy Shri Arunkumar Deshmukh, in the last week as well as this week. Srinivas ji was a Mumbaikar till the middle of the 1970s when he decided to settle down in Chennai. He is a member of RMIM (Rec. Music. Indian. Music). During our talk, Srinivas ji told me about RMIM meeting held in April 2006 at Bangalore wherein, among others things, 2 CDs containing some rare film and non-film songs of Talat Mehmood were presented. He was associated with the preparation of the CDs and he contributed some of the songs of Talat Mehmood from his collections. He said that songs from Talat CDs as well as songs from some other CDs are available on Dr Surjit Singh’s Website.

Lata Mangeshkar who first sang in a Marathi film ‘Gajabhau’ (1944), is still continuing to sing for Hindi films albeit very sparingly. As per http://www.myswar.com, she sang a solo song for the film ‘Dunno No Y2 Life is a Moment’ (2015). That gives her playback career a span of over 7 decades – a world record, I guess, in playback singing for films. In fact, she sang for 46 films between 2000-2015. I thought why not do a similar exercise for Talat Mehmood.

When you listen to today’s song, you will realize why Talat’s voice was called Velvety. This soulful, sad farewell song by Talat Mehmood is from the film “Mera Salaam”-1957.

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.

This is a song from a Raj-Nargis film Bewafa-52 and it is sung by Talat Mahmood.

It is not very common that Talat sang for Raj Kapoor. Raj was convinced that only the voice of Mukesh suited him, so in all the films that he produced or directed, he used to try using Mukesh for his songs. However,as a true Professional, if he were to work for some other producer or under a different Director, he followed the policy of strict Non-interference. So, in such films, we see other singers giving playback to Raj Kapoor, depending on the choice of the producer or director. Talat sang a total of ten songs for Raj Kapoor in 4 films, as following-

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 2 # Talat Mehmood-1
————————————————-

This is the second offering in this series. My primary focus in this series is to introduce those films from the decade 1971-1980 that are yet to make a debut on the blog.

But instead of going chronologically I willdiscuss these songs in sequence in which I noticed them in HFGK Vol-V. And of course, special songs are to be discussed first.

And today’s song is definitely a special one – a devotional song in the ‘velvet voice’ – now this one really came to me as surprise when I read the first song in the list under this film’s name in HFGK. The singer was none other than Talat Mehmood.

I had not heard the name the film “Pathan’ (1962) until I came across the songs on this Blog itself. However, I had heard two songs from this movie sung by Talat Mehmood which were popular on the radio in the 60s. One of Talat Mehmood songs chaand mera baadalon mein kho gaya has already been covered in the Blog. Not much of the information on the film is available on the internet sources other than star cast and songs. IMDB has tagged this film as family drama. The film may have been bombed at the box office and became obscure over a period of time.
