In the late 50s and early 60s when I got interested in Hindi film songs, I used to identify the popular songs only with the playback singers who had rendered them. It never came to my mind that I should also know as to who wrote the lyrics and who composed the music for the songs.  In the next stage of my interest in Hindi film songs, I was keen to know as to who composed the music for the songs that I liked very much. It was only when I heard some of the songs from films such as ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), ‘Kaaghaz Ke Phool’ (1959), ‘Anaadi’ (1959), ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960) etc, I felt that need to know as to who wrote the lyrics of the songs as well.

Mukesh and his Composers – 12
—————————————–
Mukesh singing a light-hearted peppy number and none other than Bharat Bhusan dancing a few steps to the tune; the combination of such a scene is extremely rare in hindi cinema, knowing the songs that the singer has mainly sung and the roles the actor has played. We shall discuss more about this rare occurance a little later.

Surajmukhi (1950) was produced under the banner of Madhuban Pictures and was directed by OP Datta. The star cast included Shyam and Rehana in the lead roles with Gope, Yashodara Katju, Randhir, Durga Khote, Hafeez Jahan, Cuckoo etc in the supporting roles. I did not get any information about the contents of the film. I guess from the songs that the film belonged to the social genre with some shades of romance in it.

Yesterday I happened to watch Anubhav (1971). I had last seen this film when I was a young boy. I must admit I wasn’t particularly impressed by it at that time. In those days, I was into “fun” movies which either had action (like Mera Gaon Mera Desh) or a typical storyline with catchy music (like Kati Patang). Anubhav had neither. The music was beautiful but not the type a 10-year old would find fun.

Question-Answer (Sawaal-Jawaab) songs and its variant, teasing (Ched-Chaad) songs have a special place in Hindi films. These songs are generally duets of male and female voices and are my favourites in the genre of light songs. These songs are sometimes also composed in qawaali style. One can enjoy these songs doubly when the video clips of such songs are available and directors like Guru Dutt, Vijay Anand etc were involved in the picturisation of these songs.
