The Voice of Mukesh #70
– – – – – – – – – – – – –

This voice has such an alluring appeal. No matter what the song may be, Mukesh ji’s voice has the quality to enliven the song with the depth of his soulful emotion. The words come alive with his rendition. Listen to any of his songs, whether they have been popularized on account of association with successful films and actors, or they belong to obscure, unheard and unsuccessful films. His songs from many such films have remained obscure and unheard. For songs of Mukesh, the unexplored era is primarily in the 1970s.  There still are many songs sung by him, that have to find their place on this blog. Many of them are unfamiliar and obscure, and some are familiar but unheard for long.

Today I present this poignant song of unrequited love – love that is waiting for fulfillment and happiness. The film is ‘Intezaar’ from 1973. The words of this song are written by Verma Malik and the music is from the mind of the old maestro, Chitragupt. The career innings of Chitragupt started in mid 1940s, and lasted for more than four and a half decades. Although lesser in number, we do films with his music, listed well into the 1980s. The last such film probably is ‘Insaaf Ki Manzil’ in 1988. Then, we also see a film listed for 1998, well after his passing away in 1991.

The film is produced under the banner of De-Luxe Films, Bombay and is directed by Mohan Singh Kavia. The cast of actors includes Baldev Khosa, Padmini Kapila, Rakesh Pande, Rinku Jaiswal, IS Johar, Mohan Choti, Lata Arora, Chandrima Bhaduri, Leela Misra, Narmada Shankar, Manhar Desai, and more. On screen, this song is picturized as a background song, as Rakesh Pande and Rinku Jaiswal are seen in the frame, separated by a closed door, but very visibly pining for the other. There is also a child sleeping in the room. I request friends and readers who may have seen this film, to please comment on this situation.

Listen to this tender expression of desires and aspirations seeking fulfilment, and yet, held back by circumstances. There is a certain grace in how the protagonists are holding their emotions, and the words are coming from the background, telling the tale of suppressed sentiments. Listen and enjoy.


Song – Idhar Intezaar, Udhar Intezaar (Intezaar) (1973) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar
tu bhi beqaraar
mein bhi beqaraar
jag ki maryada dekho
bani hai deewaar
idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar

thandi thandi aahen aur jalti jawaani
aag se dekho jaise lipta hai paani
thandi thandi aahen aur jalti jawaani
aag se dekho jaise lipta hai paani
ye tanhaai
ye angdaai
ik hai jawaani aur gham beshumaar
idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar
tu bhi beqaraar
mein bhi beqaraar

paas reh ke bhi itni hai doori
koi nahin samjhega teri majboori
paas reh ke bhi itni hai doori
koi nahin samjhega teri majboori
zindagi hai teri
raat andheri
rooth na jaaye kahin roop ki bahaar
idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar
tu bhi beqaraar
mein bhi beqaraar
jag ki maryada dekho
bani hai deewaar
idhar intezaar
udhar intezaar

इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार
तू भी बेक़रार
मैं भी बेक़रार
जग की मर्यादा देखो
बनी है दीवार
इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार

ठंडी ठंडी आहें और जलती जवानी
आगे से देखो जैसा लिपटा है पानी
ठंडी ठंडी आहें और जलती जवानी
आगे से देखो जैसा लिपटा है पानी
ये तनहाई
ये अंगड़ाई
इक है जवानी और ग़म बेशुमार
इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार
तू भी बेक़रार
मैं भी बेक़रार

पास पास रह के भी इतनी है दूरी
कोई नहीं समझेगा तेरी मजबूरी
पास पास रह के भी इतनी है दूरी
कोई नहीं समझेगा तेरी मजबूरी
ज़िंदगी है तेरी
रात अंधेरी
रूठ ना जाये कहीं रूप की बहार
इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार
तू भी बेक़रार
मैं भी बेक़रार
जग की मर्यादा देखो
बनी है दीवार
इधर इंतज़ार
उधर इंतज़ार

“मैंने सौ बार ख़यालों में बनाए खाके

It would be an interesting exercise, to do a series of songs, wherein one song is introduced through another song. So many times it happens, a song starts to play, and the mind automatically thinks of another song that expresses similar emotions. I am sure we will be able to list numerous such pairs. There is after all, only so many emotions that the human mind plays with. It is the poet’s mind that will express the same thought in a huge variety of combinations of words.

I was in the midst of writing a short write-up on a song from the film ‘Jawaani Ki Reet’ (1939) produced under the banner of New Theatres. The film was not available to view in DVD/VCD format. Luckily, I could get a short review of the film in February 1940 issue of  ‘Filmindia’ magazine which gave me some indication as to the theme of the story. The story reminded me of the film ‘Kangan’ (1939) produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies, as I had watched the 40-minute snippet of the film on YT a few days back.

The original HMV of EMI group was renamed RPG, when purchased by the Goenka Group. Later on in 2000, this major music producing company was aptly named as ‘Sa Re Ga Ma’. During earlier years, it used to sponsor great artists to produce many non-film music albums. Later on, under the false pretext of changing music trends, but mainly due to commercial angles, such publications along with classical music albums ware slowly reduced to very near zero.

VINTAGE SHAMSHAD BEGUM….Song No. 3
——————————————-

Today’s song is from film Namumkin-46. It is a duet of Shamshad Begum and K.S.Ragi.

We are accustomed to see only the usual regular well known names, but when some new or unknown name appears, our brows are raised and we wonder who this singer is. Same thoughts came to my mind when I first came across his name few years back. One would immediately think of the singers in a Gurudwara, who are also called Raagis. I tried and tried very hard, but except that he hailed from Andhra pradesh, I could not get any other information on him. Then one fine morning K S Ragi’s daughter appeared on RMIM forum and gave some more information. Though even this was very meagre, still at least something was there.

“Life is short but art and for that matter music is permanent. There is no death of a true art and so is it with music.”

These are the words of one who is known as the ‘Gentleman Musician’ amongst the community of music directors and musicians, both in Bombay and in Calcutta.  Vistas Ardeshir Balsara – a name that is part of a long list of very talented musicians, whose contributions to the making of the film music has been immense.  These musicians, instrumentalists and arrangers, most of whom were  experienced and capable of being music directors in their own right, rarely got to appear in the limelight and be recognized for their work.  V Balsara is one such gifted musicians who did get the opportunity to step out from behind the curtain, and be known for his art.  I am sure all will remember the iconic song “Ae Mere Dil Kahin Aur Chal” (‘Daag’, 1952) in all its flavors.  The piano accordion in this song is played by him.

Remembering V Balsara on the anniversary of his passing away (24th March).
