Blog Day : 3873 Post No. : 14892

Today (24 february 2019) is the 95th birth anniversary of Talat Mehmood (24 February 1924-9 May 1998).

Talat Mehmood sang some 450 songs in all which includes HFM as well as NF songs. This blog contains 377 of his songs. So we are only about 70 odd songs short of covering all Talat Mehmood songs in the blog.

Today, on this occasion, here is a non film song of Talat Mehmood. Like most NFS, this song too has superb lyrics which are penned by Jigar Muradabadi. The song is composed by Iqbal. The date of release in not known, and I have assumed it to be 1960.

This is a Talat Mehmood song that I heard for the first time only just now, when I realised that today was Talat Mehmood birth anniversary.

Lots of me to Ghazal singers came up on the scene in later decades, but it is Talat Mehmood was the original pioneer of this genre of songs. And it can safely be said that few other ghazal singers can cast a spell over their listeners as Talat Mehmood can. Here is this ghazal as a ready proof.


Song-Bekaif dil hai aur jiye ja raha hoon main(Talat Mehmood NFS)(1960) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Jigar Moradabadi, MD-Iqbal

Lyrics

Bekaif dil hai aur
jiye ja raha hoon main
Bekaif dil hai aur
jiye ja raha hoon main aen
khaali hai sheesha
aur piye jaa raha hoon main aen
khaali hai sheesha
aur piye jaa raha hoon main aen
Bekaif dil hai ae

majboori e kamaal e muhabbat to dekhna aa aa
majboori e kamaal e muhabbat to dekhna aa aa
jeena nahin qubool
jiye jaa raha hoon main aen
Bekaif dil hai ae

wo dil kahaan hai
abke jise pyaar keejiye ae ae
wo dil kahaan hai
abke jise pyaar keejiye ae ae
majbooriyaan hain
saath diye ja raha hoon main aen
Bekaif dil hai ae ae

pehle sharaab jist thhi
ab jist hai sharaab
pehle sharaab jist thhi
ab jist hai sharaab
koi pila raha hai
piye ja raha hoon main
Bekaif dil hai aur
jiye ja raha hoon main aen
Bekaif dil hai ae ae

Blog Day : 3809 Post No. : 14805

I am presenting a non-filmi ghazal recorded sometime in the early 1940s which I had heard a few years back. But after a long gap, this ghazal resurfaced when I was looking for information on the music director Chitta Roy in the context of one of the songs, aayi jawaani aayi aayi composed by him. The ghazal is ‘gham-e-zindagi kaa yaa rab na milaa koi kinaaraa’ (1940) sung by Talat Mehmood. Chitta Roy composed the music for this ghazal. The shaayar of this ghazal has been mentioned as I A Minai or Idris A Minai, a name I heard for the first time.

Despite searching extensively on the internet, I could not get even the basic information about Idris A Minai. A Google search on him gave information mostly about Ameer Minai, a well-known classical Urdu poet of the 19th century whom the current generation of fans of ghazals identify with his popular ghazals like ‘sarakati jaaye re rukh se naqaab aahista aahsta’ and ‘jab se bulbul tu ne do tinke liye’. There was, however, one name ‘Khalid Minai’ which appeared on a Google search as a Facebook page. A surprise was in store for me when I opened the page. Khalid Minai was none other than Idris A Minai who had adopted ‘Khalid’ as his nom de plume. The Facebook page, started by his son on the occasion of his 100th birth anniversary has a detailed biography of Idris A Minai. I have majorly edited his biography from the Facebook page – Khalid Minai, to make it concise. The edited version follows as under:

Idris Ahmad ‘Khalid’ Minai (29/08/1916 – 08/02/2008) was the grandson of the great Urdu poet and scholar, Ameer Minai (1827 – 1900) and the son of Mohammad Ahmad Minai and Raees Fatima. He was born in the “Purani Khandsar” quarter of the State of Rampur, (now in Uttar Pradesh) where both Ameer Minai and his son Mohammad Ahmad Minai served as high officials of the State of Rampur. The family who had settled in Rampur since 1858, moved to Hyderabad (India) in 1937 shortly after the death of his father, Mohammad Ahmad Minai.

Idris Minai completed his BA from Allahabad University in 1937, and MA in Economics from Osmania University, Hyderabad, in 1940. After a stint as a journalist for the paper “Payaam”, edited by Qazi Abdul Ghaffar, Idris Minai joined the Hyderabad State Bank (now State Bank of Hyderabad) in 1941, serving as the branch chief in Aurangabad (now in Maharashtra).

After Partition, Idris Minai was the first of the seven Minai brothers to move to Pakistan in 1948. After working in the State Bank of Pakistan for 2 years, he moved to the then newly formed National Bank of Pakistan – Pakistan’s first official commercial bank. Over the next twenty years, he served the bank in various capacities – both in West and the then East Pakistan (now Bangla Desh). He retired from the National Bank of Pakistan as Deputy Managing Director in 1971.

Literature and poetry were a major part of the environment in which Idris Minai grew up. His grandfather, Ameer Minai, was regarded as one of the major poets in the history of Urdu literature, and had succeeded the great poet, Ghalib, as the poetic mentor of the Nawab of Rampur. His father, Mohammad Ahmad Minai, was also a prolific poet, though he gave up the pursuit later in life. It was, therefore, natural for him to express himself in poetry, and, following the common practice, he chose a nom de plume, ‘Khalid’ (meaning, ‘eternal’).

Most of his poetic training occurred informally through interaction with his peers and elders which included Jaleel Manakpuri, the famous Urdu poet and the student of Ameer Minai, Fani Badayuni, Jigar Muradabadi, Hasrat Mohani, Hairat Badayuni, and Qazi Abdul Ghaffar, who gave him his first job. He developed close personal friendships with poets such as Sikandar Ali Vajd, Mahirul Qadri, Saeed Shaheedi, and several others. A notable influence for him was his eldest brother, Ismail Ahmad “Tasneem” Minai, who was himself a distinguished poet and writer. He was also influenced by Allama Iqbal for his universal vision which went beyond the classical poetry.

One of Idris Minai’s early works is an ode on the River Ganga which he wrote based on his experience while he was staying in Allahabad for his graduation. A collection of Idris Minai’s works is in the preparatory stage. In addition to poetry, he also wrote Urdu prose pieces in a language that recalled Oscar Wilde in its stylish beauty

Throughout his active life, Idris Minai participated in literary activities, beginning with mushairas in Allahabad, Hyderabad, Bombay (Mumbai), and elsewhere. After moving to Pakistan, the Minai siblings organised regular poetic events in Karachi and Lahore featuring the leading poets of the time.

Idris Ahmad ‘Khalid’ Minai breathed his last on February 8, 2008 in Karachi.

The ghazal under discussion has two versions. Talat Mehmood sang the original version in 1940 as per the uploader of the video. I could not get information on the internet as to when the original record was released. If the uploader is correct, then this ghazal precedes Talat Mehmood’s first recorded song sab din ek samaan nahin thha (1941). Talat Mehmood re-recorded this ghazal in almost identical orchestration sometime in 1960. I have given videos of both the versions for comparison purpose. My preference is the original version because Talat Mehmood voice was fresh without much of quiver as against the 1960 version.

“Aaj Ki Baat” (1955) was produced and directed by Leela Chitnis to launch the career of her son Ajeet Chitnis. The movie had Ajeet Chitnis, Uday, Chitra, Bipin Gupta, Manmohan Krishna, Sunder, Leela Chitnis etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Aaj Ki Baat” (1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Talat Mehmood. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snehal Bhatkar.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Talat Mehmood was the main male playback singer in the movie (with four songs), it can be safely assumed that he had sung for the lead actor of the movie viz. Ajeet Chitnis. It is a joyous song sung by Talat Mehmood is a rather restrained manner.


Song-Mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane (Aaj Ki Baat)(1955) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Snehal Bhatkar

Lyrics

mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane
mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane

shokhi se hansna nigaahen milaana
shokhi se hansna nigaahen milaana
mere saamne unka wo aana jaana

kya kar diya
haaye kya kar diya
unki pahli ada ne
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane
mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane

wo unki sharaarat
nadiya kinaara
unki sharaarat
nadiya kinaara
thhandi hawaayen sama pyaara pyaara
thhandi hawaayen sama pyaara pyaara
koyal ki taanen wo bulbul ke gaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane
mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane

chaman mein wo unka mere saath rahna
kabhi dil ki baaten nigaahon se kahna
bhulaaye na bhoolenge
bhulaaye na bhoolenge aise thhikaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane
mohabbat bane hain wo din suhaane
ghadiyaan milan ki dil ke taraane

So, the New Year resolution of posting a debutant song daily and a YIPPEE song daily lasted only till the first four months of the year. For the last few weeks, we have struggled to even live up to our name “song a day”.

I was made to take a one week vacation during the last one week. I was unlikely to get any time to post any articles during this time. In fact, it was only then that I realised how much time was needed to publish one simple post.

Though Sudhir Jee manfully tried to singlehandedly hold the flat afloat, but we still ended up with a few (three I think) dot days in the last few weeks. It is the first time in more than one year and more that we had dot days in the blog, otherwise the blog had posts every day continuously for over 400 days. .

When I left, the blog strike rake was just above 4 songs per day. Now it has plunged to just under 4 songs a day. Hopefully we will pick up pace again.

I am still recovering from the jet lag etc and so I was in no condition to publish any post yesterday. Today I am in better shape still it has taken me till laste in the evening before I am able to find time to publish a post and announce that I am back.

This post is a “basic” post but I hope to write some “long” posts in coming days. The fact that weekend is looming large should help my cause.

Coming to the song under discussion, it is from “Shobha”(1954. “Shobha”(1954) was directed by Niren Lahiri for S B Productions, Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Abhi Bhattacharya, Chhabi Biswas, Manju De, Shikha Bagh, Purnendu Mukherji, Rani Bannerji, Rekha Chatterji, Trilochan Jha etc in it.

This movie was based on a story written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The movie was also simultaneously made in Bangla as “Shubhada”. That explains the predominance of Bangla artists in the making of this movie.

“Shobha”(1954) had eight songs in it. two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Shobha”(1954) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Talat Mehmood. Mahendra Pran is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song was picturised on Abhi Bhattacharya.


Song-Aawaaz de gayi hai zindagi (Shobha)(1954) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Mahendra Pran, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

aawaaz de gayi hai zindagi
aawaaz de gayi hai zindagi
aur bujha charaag jala gayi ee ee
aur bujha charaag jala gayi ee ee
aawaaz de gayi hai zindagi

paaye na paaye mohabbat sila aa
paaye na paaye mohabbat sila
mujhe to nahin hai kisi se gila
junoon par haqeeqat
junoon par haqeeqat
fatah paa gayi
aawaaz de gayi hai zindagi

aankhon ne dil se kahi daastaan
aankhon ne dil se kahi daastaan
zamaane ne dekhi ye kaisi fizaa
ishaaron se har baat
ishaaron se har baat tai paa gayi ee
aawaaz de gayi hai zindagi
aawaaz de gayi hai zindagi

This song is an archtypical Talat Mehmood song. I suppose listening to a Talat Mehmood song those days (even today) may have been akin to watching Vijay Merchant bat. 🙂 Serene unhurried batting. Perfect forward defence, occasional singles, and some delicately placed boundaries on some rare occasions. No agricultural shots whatsoever. 🙂


Song-Mohabbat na hoti zamaana na hota (Shobha)(1954) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

na hum aahen bharte
na wo aahen bharte
na hum aahen bharte
na wo aahen bharte
agar darmiyaan ye zamaana na hota
agar darmiyaan ye zamaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

kahaan ae falak tu u giraata ye bijli
kahaan ae falak tu u giraata ye bijli ee
hamaara agar aashiyaana na hota
hamaara agar aashiyaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi
bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

Blog Day : 3508 Post No. : 14096

Today, 24th February is the birth anniversary of Talat Mehmood (born 1924).

There are approximately 650 film songs identified, as being sung by him. It is a known fact that during the decade of 1950s, Talat Sb spent more of his energies in trying to establish himself as an actor-singer. He had the presence and the looks of a leading hero, plus a voice that at one time had stolen the hearts of film goers and listeners. But the on-screen combination somehow did never strike a rapport with the audience, getting only a lukewarm reception at the box office. Rising from the mid 1940s along with the other mainstream singers, he allowed his ratings as a playback singer to falter, in his effort to be a singing start. Now, it is just a matter of speculation how the history of Hindi films and Hindi film music could have been different, had some different choices had been made by Talat Sb.

In this context, it is very interesting to note that the decade of 1950 evolved in the manner it did – given that some leading singers made some different choices. The other names that come to mind are Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Mukesh also focused his energies on becoming an actor, for a good part of the early half of 1950s. Similarly, Kishore Kumar did not focus on being a dedicated playback singer – he also first went the actor route to establish himself in the industry. It is recognized that he was successful to a great extent to establish himself as an actor of some merit and popular following, with a continuous string of films that mattered. But even for him, his career as an actor eclipsed by mid 1960s, and his decision to come into his own as a playback singer in late 1960s, did wonders of a different type in his career. And so the debate about ‘What if. . .’ applied to these three singers is interesting, but of course a moot exercise. The history of Hindi film music is what it is. The choices had been made.

Today’s song has been sent in by Avinash ji. The film is ‘Samaapti’ from 1949. The film is produced at the Calcutta center, under the banner of Uma Productions, and is directed by Amar Mullick. The star cast of the film is briefly listed in the Geet Kosh as Talat Mehmood, Bharti Devi, Heeralal and Sunder. Given that Talat Mehmood is starring in this film, this song most likely is picturized on himself.

The film has 8 songs listed. Music direction is by Timir Baran. The lyricist name is listed for six of the songs – Pandit Bhushan. Two of these songs, including this one, are solo renderings by Talat Sb, two are solo songs by Suprabha Sarkar, and two are duets of Talat and Suprabha Sarkar. Information about the lyricists and singers of the remaining two songs is not available.

A light hearted song of happiness, that tells about the heart singing like a bird – rendered so effortlessly by Talat Sb. Listen and enjoy.

 


Song – Mann Ki Maina Bol Rahi Hai (Samaapti) (1949) Singer – Talat Mehmood, Lyrics – Pandit Bhushan, MD – Timir Baran

After discussing over 13600 songs in the blog, which is roughly 25 % of all Hindi movie songs created upto 1980 and nearly 40 % percent of all the available songs (my rough estimate), one may feel that almost all great songs have already been covered in the blog. May be we have covered majority of “well known” songs, but I keep discoveing great “lesser known” or “forgotten” gems almost on a daily basis. Some of them are such great songs to listen to that I want to hold them back for special occasions. But I find that there are so many of them and holding all of them back for special occasions would mean that I would have very few songs available for immediate discussion.
