Yesterday, 13th August was the birthday of Vijayantimala, as she turns 81.

For this celebration, here is a wonderful song performed by her, from the film ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ (1964). The film is from the banner of Anjali Pictures of Madras, and is produced by Adi Narayan Rao. The film is directed by Inder Raj Anand. The songs in this film are written by Hasrat Jaipuri, and the music is by Adi Narayan Rao. The screenplay of this film is adapted by Inder Raj Anand, from one of the popular novels of Gulshan Nanda – ‘Andhere Chiraagh’.

The star cast of the film includes Ashok Kumar, Nirupa Roy, Vijayanthimala, Anjali Devi, Manoj Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Kanchanmala, Kanhaiyalal, Mukri, Raju (Child Artiste), Shubha Khote, Mehmood.

The storyline of the film involves a situation wherein the child of the younger brother and his wife (roles played by Manoj Kumar and Vijayantimala), under certain family circumstances, is adopted by the elder brother and his wife (roles played by Ashok Kumar and Nirupa Roy). Although they live together, the younger sister in law is forbidden to call her own child, as her child. As the story progresses, the matters are sorted out. This song is one of the interim situations where the child (role played by Master Raju), calls his real mother as ‘Maa‘ for the first time. The song depicts the happiness and ecstasy expressed by the mother. The song is beautifully performed by Vijayantimala.

The lyrics of this song are provided by Prakash ji. This song used to be a popular one during the radio listening days. Thanks to Prakash ji, for reviving this melodious memory.

Greetings to Vijayantmala ji, on her birthday, and best wishes for many a happy and healthy returns of this day.

“Sapan Suhaane”(1961) was directed by Kedar Kapoor for K R Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Balraj Sahni, Geeta Bali, Bhagwan, Kamini Kadam, Chandrashekhar, K N singh, Leela Mishra, Parveen Paul, Samson, Ram Mohan, Helen etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three songs from this movie have been covered in the blog. All these songs were discussed in 2009, viz eight years ago !

Here is the fourth song from ‘Sapan Suhaane’ (1961) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Manna Dey and chorus. Shailendra is the lyricist. Listening to the song leaves no doubt in mind that the music director has to be Salil Chaudhary.

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

Greetings to all on today’s festival of Rakshabandhan. I hope and pray that celebrations have been happily enjoyed in the household of all readers and friends.

As we have discussed in many posts earlier on this topic, Rakshabandhan is celebrated on the full moon day of the month of Saawan. In traditional terms, the timing of today’s celebrations got restricted due to two additional astrological events that coincided with the full moon celebration. As per the calculations of the ephemeris applicable to the Indian subcontinent, the full moon ‘tithi’ i.e. the ‘poornima’ started at 10:29 pm yesterday (6th Aug), and will be in effect till 11:41 pm tonight (7th Aug).

In our astrological scheme, there is a concept of ‘bhadra’, which is invoked on the basis of a combination of certain ‘nakshatras‘ (stellar entities). ‘Bhadra’ is a short period of time for which certain conjunctions of certain stellar entities exist. Although lasting for short spells – few minutes to few hours, ‘bhadra’ has a significance. These short interludes are designated as inauspicious in our system of calculations. As a result, the pundits and astrologers will advise against conducting or initiating any auspicious activity during the time passage of ‘bhadra’. Incidentally, as per astrological calculations, the ‘bhadra’ time period overlaps with the full moon day today, for some time. The effect of ‘bhadra’ conjunction is(was) active till about 11 am today morning. So as per announcements at the temples, on the religious channels, and as advised by knowledgeable elders, the festival celebration of Raakhi today was advised to be initiated only after 11 am.

Then, there is another important astrological event that occurs today. Later tonight, we shall also witness a lunar eclipse. Again, as per calculations for the Indian subcontinent, the lunar eclipse with start at 10:53 pm tonight.  It will last for a duration of little less than two hours, and will end at 00:48 am tomorrow (8th Aug).
[Note: All times indicated above are according to Indian Standard Time.]

In case you wonder, why is one concerned about the lunar eclipse that is anyway going to start so late in the night, there are some reasons. Although the specific time and duration of the actual eclipse is of a certain length, the total duration of the conjunction of the heavenly bodies involved in the eclipse is much longer than just the visible eclipse. In this case, the heavenly bodies involved are the sun, the moon and the earth. The lunar eclipse is effected when the sun, moon and earth are so aligned that the earth is positioned directly in between the sun and the moon, and the shadow of the earth falls on the moon, making it look partially or fully dark; the duration and coverage of course varies depending on where you are placed for viewing, in terms of longitude location.

Folks may recall their geography lessons from the school days, and remember the concept of umbra and penumbra. As an opaque object passes in front of a source of light, it first creates an area of partial darkness (also called the shadow of darkness or shadow of eclipse). This is called the penumbra. Then when the object fully occludes the light coming from the source, we get an area of total darkness, which is the actual eclipse itself. This is called the umbra. As the object continues to move in front of the light source, the umbra once again transforms into penumbra, and we get a second area of partial darkness, after the eclipse is over. Hence the total duration of the two sets of partial darkness periods and one total darkness period, is actually much more than the duration of the visible eclipse (the umbra) only. Given the relative positions and distances of the three moving bodies, the duration of each penumbra could be anywhere from 7 to 9 hours. And so the conjunction of the three heavenly bodies that creates the eclipse effect, actually will last for almost 20 hours.

And the impact of that on our celebrations? Well, once again, as per our astrological definitions, the duration of this ‘shadow of the eclipse’ is also considered to be inauspicious, and hence the advise to refrain from conducting or initiating any auspicious activity. For those who follow these instructions, the lunar eclipse tonight puts in one more restriction on Raakhi celebrations today. Since the penumbra duration can be 8 to 9 hours, then for the given time of eclipse (10:53 pm) we must calculate back by subtracting this time. We arrive at a time of approximately 2 pm as the outer limit of this window. Given these calculations and guidance, the auspicious time for Raakhi today is(was) limited to a window from 11 am to 2 pm.

Anyway, that is just for the information buffs, who need to know the details of why. . .?? 🙂

Coming to the posts for today. Atul ji has posted one song earlier today morning, in which he has given some background of the previous Raakhi celebration days that we have had on our blog. In that background, he has mentioned that overall 22 songs have been posted on our blog, over the past 9 cycles of this festival, from 2008 onwards. As I read this statement, I was a little uncertain about this number, thinking that Atul ji is probably underestimating the count. Nine years at 22 songs computes to a little over two songs on average per festival. I had a feeling there have to be more.

So I started to check, picking out the dates for the Raakhi day each year, and then checking on the blog for the songs on that day. My hunch was correct. We have much more, in fact we have 32 Raakhi songs posted on our blog, and the number now is 34, considering the two songs posted today. The count of songs by year, as per the song lists we maintain, is given as below.

So, over the past nine years, we have 32 songs posted for Raakhi. Maybe 3 or 4 of these songs are not pure bred Raakhi songs – they are songs about brother-sister love, but they have been posted on Raakhi days, in conjunction with the festival.

Way back in 2010, when we were on our third Raakhi celebration, the blog till then, contained only two Raakhi songs (one each posted in 2009 and 2010). Starting the first post for that day (24th Aug, 2010), Atul ji writes,

This is the third Raakhi for this blog. […]

This time I wanted to post more “Raakhi” songs but then I thought that there were very few “Raakhi” songs created in Hindi movies and I wondered if I would be able to post about six “Raakhi” songs. I was delighted to find that I was in fact able to find more than six “Raakhi” songs. So I find myself being able to post my daily quota of six songs on this Raakhi day.

That day, in fact he did post 6 songs of the festival and of brother-sister love. He mentions that he is afraid not too many songs have been created for this festival. Then in 2011, we go ahead and post 5 more songs. In 2012, the count goes up to 7 Raakhi songs posted, all in one day. Atul ji is like a millionaire – many more to come :D:D. (Personally I would have been a spendthrift, trying to save some for future such events. 😉 ).

Then in 2013, the count comes down to 5 (posted across two dates 20th and 21st Aug). In 2014 we are down to 3, then 2 in 2015 and, goodness, just one in 2016. Looks like we are running out of these celebration songs. But wait, we have two posted this year, and our dear Prakash ji has identified a few more from the later decades, that we shall probably be holding on to for next year and later. 🙂

But seriously, I believe there is still some more songs that have to be traced. Reason being, well, none of us has heard all the songs of all the films. Another factor – sometimes we can guess the song’s theme by the words in the song title. Yet, there are so many songs where the title does not easily reveal itself to be of a particular theme. So then, even screening the list contained in the Geet Kosh is only helpful to an extent. Sometimes when I am doing a search, I will try to scan the lists and look for the word ‘राखी’. Most such songs are posted. Then the next two words I would search in the song index are ‘बहना’ and ‘भैया’. These two scanning efforts have turned up some more songs that are meant for today’s celebration.

Case in point is today’s song. The mukhda starts with ‘थईय्या ता ता थईय्या’ (‘thaiya ta ta thaiya’). A speedily glancing eye will just skip over this mukhda and move on. My attention was caught by the last word in the second part of the mukhda ‘जुग जुग जिये मेरा भैया’ (‘jug jug jiye mera bhaiya’). And I decided to investigate. I had not heard this song before, although I have the recordings of all songs of this film (‘Sher Khan’ – 1962) in my collection. I pulled out the song and played it. It was like hitting gold in the first trial. Turns out to very much be a Raakhi song, and coming from an obscure film, and that too quite unexpectedly.

I have this film also (it is also available online). So I pulled the film and edited out the song for uploading, because the song itself is not available online yet.

‘Sher Khan’ is a stunt cum social film, about inter tribal rivalry that involves Pathan and Rajput clans. Produced under the banner of Mukul Movies, it is directed by Radhakant. The lead pair is Kumkum and Kanwaljeet. Other members of the cast include Veena, Jayant, Ulhas, Tabassum, Hiralal, Sunder, Majnu, Madhumati, WM Khan, Jeevankala, Surekha, Samson, Rana, Amir, Prem, Shafi Muhammad, Jagdish Bhalla and others. There are six songs in this film, all from the pen of Prem Dhawan. And the music is by SN Tripathi. One song of this film is already posted on our blog. I just played all the songs and heard them – goodness, this obscure and unknown film is a gold mine of forgotten gems. Such lovely songs that were once in the hearing, have now been forgotten.

This song is a combination of a happiness and sadness. It is celebration time, and the ladies are singing a song of auspicious blessings. Meena (role played by a very young Tabassum), the daughter of Thakur Ranjeet Singh (role played by Ulhas). Sher Khan (role played by Kamaljeet) is a brave Pathan who strikes friendship with Thakur Ranjeet Singh, and treats Meena as his sister. The story is little more complicated than that, of course. It is the day of Raakhi, and Meena is waiting for Sher Khan to come for the tying of the Raakhi thread. Sher Khan has been waylaid; he fights off his attackers, gets to a doorway to get a drink of water. He discovers that it is the day of Raakhi, and then he quickly rides back to the home of Thakur Ranjeet Singh. Menawhile, Meena is singing the sad lines of the celebration song. But by the time the song ends, Sher Khan is standing in front of her, and the Raakhi is tied.

One query for the more knowledgeable readers – the lady who is leading the dance, and singing the happy portions of the song – is that Jeevankala? I request for help with identification.
NOTE: Prakash ji has checked and confirmed that the lead dancer is Madhumati. Also, one of the accompanying dancers is Shirley. Thanks Prakash ji.

This is a lovely lilting song, that soon gets into the humming domain in the mind. Once again, greetings and congratulations to all readers and friends, for today’s celebrations.

“Batwaara”(1961) was directed by Karunesh Thakur for Deep and Sandeep Productions, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Nirupa Roy, Rehman, Shashikala, Jawahar Kaul, Jabeen Jaleel, Leela Chitnis, Wasti, Jagdeesh Sethi etc in it.

This tear jerker “social” movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “Batwaara”(1961) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt, Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Madan.

The song is picturised as a wedding ritual dance song, as far as I can tell. The song is picturised on a lady dressed as a male (singing in Geeta Dutt’s voice) teasing Sheila Vaz (singing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice) with lots of other ladies singing in chorus. This performance is being watched by almost all other charaters in the movie who form the joint family.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lady lip syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice.

Yesterday (31st July 2017) was the birthday of Mumtaz, one of Hindi cinema’s leading heroines in the early 70s.

Yesterday also happened to be the death anniversary of Rafisaab, and our posts were focussed on remembering him. So this post for Mumtaz is being posted a day late. Hopefully, if she is reading this, she won’t mind. 🙂

Anyway, on behalf of the blog, we wish Mumtaz a very happy birthday – and many happy returns of the day.

There have been a fair number of big stars in Hindi cinema but I don’t think there have been many who have “worked their way up the ladder” quite like Mumtaz.

Some got success early and didn’t have to struggle to become stars.

Some struggled early on, with the odd hit, a few flops, and eventually became stars.

In both cases, the goal was to become a star – and any bit roles done did not stereotype the actor, so it was a matter of just getting bigger roles.

But the case of Mumtaz was different. She moved from being a starlet to becoming a B-film “stunt heroine” to often playing the “second” woman to finally move into A-films – and then to become a big star in A-films.

Now that’s quite a career progression.

It’s SO easy in the industry to get stereotyped – if you’re a B-film heroine, chances are you might never get an A-banner. Producers are very conscious of their banner, who they cast – and even A-actors might not want to act opposite B-actors. In Mumtaz’ case, apparently Shashi Kapoor refused to act opposite her in Sacha Jhootha (1970).

This progression is what makes Mumtaz’ career quite amazing. Where others like Nishi, Nazima, and Farida Jalal couldn’t break into A-films as leading ladies, Mumtaz broke that ceiling when she bagged the leading role in Raj Khosla’s Do Raaste (1969).

And after that, there was no looking back.

But let’s start at the beginning.

Mumtaz started as a child artiste role in Sone Ki Chidiya (1958) and followed it up with a few films in the early 60s, mainly in small roles.

Although I haven’t seen the film, she can be seen in the “pankh hoti to ud aati re” song picturisation in Sehra (1963).

And in Rustom Sohrab (1963), another film I haven’t seen yet, there is a beautiful Asha Bhosle song “ab der ho gayi vallah” picturised on her and Premnath.

In the same year, she got a role in Gehra Daag, the Rajendra Kumar – Mala Sinha starrer. Again, a film I haven’t seen.

By then, she was beginning to get B-film lead roles opposite Dara Singh. They acted in many films together – Faulad (1963), Veer Bhimsen (1964), Samson (1964), Hercules (1964), Aandhi Aur Toofaan (1964), Tarzan Comes to Delhi (1965), Tarzan and King Kong (1965), Sikander-e-Azam (1965), Raaka (1965), Boxer (1965), Jawan Mard (1966), Daku Mangal Singh (1966), Do Dushman (1967), Jang Aur Aman (1967), Apna Khoon Apna Dushman (1969)…

The reason for mentioning all these films is to just emphasise how strongly entrenched Mumtaz was in B-films and how strong her partnership with Dara Singh was. Dara Singh was a very popular B-film hero at the time,always playing the role of a strongman, wrestling or breaking iron chains. (Even Naseeruddin Shah, in an interview, once said he was fond of Dara Singh films.)

Mumtaz herself admitted that Dara Singh was largely responsible for her success at that time.

During this period, she also used to do “secondary” roles for bigger banners. Films that come to mind are Kajal (1965), Mere Sanam (1965) – who can forget “ye hai reshmi”, Suraj (1966), Sawan Ki Ghata (1966), Hamraaz (1967), Patthar Ke Sanam (1967).

In Khandaan (1966), she had an important, somewhat negative role, triggering separation in the family.

Mumtaz was growing in stature, no doubt. All these films had big stars and did well – so even when she wasn’t the leading lady, she was getting reasonable opportunity to be known to the audience.

Mumtaz had a good dancing sense too. She could easily impress on a dance floor. In Pyar Kiye Ja (1966), where she is opposite Mehmood in a joint-lead role, she can be seen having fun in “o meri maina”. And who can forget her dance with “aaj kal tere mere pyar ke charche” with Shammi Kapoor in Brahmachari (1968)? And another dance I love – “Ruby O Ruby”, from Chaahat (1971).

It was in 1967 that Mumtaz broke into the big league when she got a lead role (albeit joint-lead) in Ram Aur Shyam. That was a huge thing for her – to star opposite Dilip Kumar.

This was when the next phase of her career started. The B-film “stunt” heroine began getting roles opposite A-film actors. She would still do the “second” heroine role in films like Aadmi Aur Insaan (1969) but lead roles were coming her way. I remember seeing her in Boond Jo Ban Gaye Moti (1967) opposite Jeetendra.

The big turning point then came with Do Raaste (1969). The film was a huge hit – and though it was very much a Rajesh Khanna film, Mumtaz had four songs picturised on her, including the superhit song “bindiya chamkegi”.

No looking back thereafter – Mumtaz just went from strength to strength. Even heroes who were hesitant to work with her earlier, were now happy to work with her.

Mumtaz got her one and only Filmfare award for Khilona (1970). It wasn’t a very big role – and like other roles she had got, this too apparently came to her because it had been rejected by others. But to her credit, Mumtaz not just took the role – she earned an award for it.

I remember there were a number of Mumtaz hit films with Jeetendra in the early 70s.

And around that time, she also had hits with Dharmendra with Jheel Ke Us Paar (1973) and Loafer (1973).

Feroze Khan was another popular co-star. He had gone through his own B-film struggles in the 60s, so their careers were rather parallel in that sense. When Feroze got into film-making himself, he cast Mumtaz in Apradh (1972).

Mumtaz also starred in a couple of Navketan films opposite Dev Anand. The superhit Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971) and the less-successful (but a film I’m very fond of) Tere Mere Sapne (1971).

But of course, I am saving the best for last. 🙂

For all her other hits with other co-stars (and there were many), Mumtaz’ partnership with Rajesh Khanna was special – it was just phenomenal.

They seemed to have great chemistry – in every film that they were in together (with the exception of their last film together, Aaina), they dazzled.

And since this was the period I remember most fondly from my childhood, many of my Rajesh Khanna memories are linked to Mumtaz. From “ye reshmi zulfein” to “chhup gaye saare nazaare” to “yun hi tum mujh se baat karti ho” to “maine dekha, toone dekha” to “kajra laga ke” to “suno champa suno taara” to “duniya mein logon ko” to “gore rang pe” to “karvatein badalte rahein” to “jai jai Shivshankar” to “chal dariya mein doob jaayen – each one of these songs was very popular in its time, and most of them are popular to this day!

And then it ended abruptly.

Mumtaz got married in 1974 – while still at the peak of her career. Her husband, a successful businessman Mayur Madhvani, lived in England and Mumtaz moved there too. She just wrapped up her last few engagements and bid the industry goodbye.

After that, she could be seen in Aaina (1977) and much later, in 1990, in Aandhiyaan – but her career is best remembered till the mid-70s.

Looking back, even as I have been charting this journey, I have been thoroughly impressed – imagine the person who has gone through the journey herself!

I can only admire Mumtaz for not just sticking it out in the industry (that is tough enough) but for getting to where she eventually did – and then leaving it on her terms.

Now, moving on to the song for today.

It is from Pardesi (1970), a film in which Mumtaz has the lead role opposite Biswajeet. I remember seeing this film as a young boy, but can’t remember the storyline now. I vaguely remember someone falling off a cliff, being bitten by a snake or something like that. 🙂 It was probably Biswajeet – who then loses his memory (the famous “main kaun hoon, kahaan hoon”) as he is then brought back to health by these village folk. He is called Pardesi by them, and lives with them for a while. Not an uncommon storyline in Hindi cinema. 🙂

This film had fairly popular songs composed by Chitragupt – in particular, “lagi na chhutegi” was quite popular. I remember also hearing “pardesi piya o pardesi piya” off and on.

Today’s song is “daaka daale”. To be honest, I have no clue about the situation in the film (this is one film I did not see recently to get the song’s context). But it looks like a typical hero-heroine song out in nature – I am reminded of “kaanto mein phasa aanchal” from Do Dil (1966), also a Biswajeet film, albeit opposite Rajshree.

Anyway, it is quite a pleasant song, wonderfully composed by Chitragupt. Hope you enjoy it.

Missing Films of 1960s – 34
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Yesterday, 25th July, was the anniversary of passing away of GS Kohli, the music director extraordinaire. He passed away in 1996, in Bombay.

A long time assistant music director to OP Nayyar, he had a short stint as an independent music director in the decade of 1960s. Despite a load of fantastic lilting songs in all his films – songs that became instant hits, very popular in their times, and still continue to be favourites of the lovers of the golden era of Hindi film music – he remained confined to B/C grade stunt films only. He continued to work as OPN’s assistant before, during and after his stint as an independent music director.

There is a lot common in his music and that of OPN, and that is in part due to the fact that he had a major role to play in designing and creating the rhythms and beats of OPN’s songs. The use of dholak and the rhythms of Punjab make the music of GS Kohli oh so adorable. Just give one more listen to the wonderful pensive sound of “Yaad Tori Aayi To Main Chham Chham Royi Re” (film ‘Faulaad’, 1963). After just the first half line of the mukhda, the dholak takes on, and continues to support the singing pieces, without a break till the end. The symbolism for emotions can be debated, but just listen to the beat as it keeps on consistently through the song. So beautifully constructed – try to think about this song without the dholak beats. . . would you??

There is one more very interesting thing about the music of GS Kohli. A wonder that has always been missed in the golden era of Hindi film music is. . .  guess. . . – think about OP Nayyar and what is missing from his portfolio. . .

Full marks to all who thought about Lata Mangeshkar. The creations that would have been, had these two artists worked together, has forever now remained a topic of speculation. Aah, but there is a reprieve – the music and songs of GS Kohli. Yes, Lata ji has sung for GS Kohli. And listening to these songs, one can get the closest feel for how it would have been – Lata ji singing for OPN. Let us check out the songs –

‘Shikari’ (1963) has four songs.
Baaje Ghunghroo Chhun Chhun Chhun Chhun” – solo
Agar Main Poochhoon Jawaab Doge” – duet with Rafi Sb
Chaman Ke Phool Bhi Thujko Gulaab Kehte Hain” – duet with Rafi Sb
Maangi Hain Duaayen Hamne Sanam” – duet with Usha Mangeshkar

‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ (1965) has one song.
Pyaar Ki Baat Nigaahon Se Jataayaa Na Karo” – duet with Mahendra Kapoor

‘Namaste ji’ (1965), another bonanaza of superb songs, has two songs.
Mere Do Naina Matwaale. . .  Kis Ke Liye” – solo
Bahaaro Thaam Lo Ab Dil Mera Mehboob Aata Hai” – duet with Mukesh

‘Naujawaan’ (1966) has two songs,
“Aaiye Aap Tashreef Le Aaiye, Baakhuda Aapse Koi Parda Nahin” – solo
“Majnoon Saa Aashiq Mar Gaya Lekin Nasihat Kar Gaya” – duet with Usha Mangeshkar

‘Sangdil’ (1967) has one gem of a female duet.
“Badi Kaafir Tumhaari Nazar Nikli, Meri Jaan Le Gayi, Do-Jahaan Le Gayi” – duet with Usha Mangeshkar

And then ‘Gunda’ (1969) has a superb solo
“Nazar Ne Uth’te Hi Kuch Is Adaa Se Kaam Kiya” – solo

Definitely worth a re-listen, and try the flavor with the thought in the mind – here is the music that could be the closest representation of Lata ji singing for OP Nayyar.

For today’s song, I have another fabulous female duet from the film ‘Do Matwaale’ (1966). The song is ‘Hamre Sajan Ghar Aaye’, sung alongwith Usha Mangeshkar. Interesting to note that all the Lata duets in female company, composed by GS Kohli, are all sung with Usha Mangeshkar.

The film ‘Do Matwaale’ opens its account on our blog today. As has been his wont, this is another stunt film from the banner of Rainbow Films, Bombay, directed by Kamraan, whom we all remember as one of the popular leading men of such stunt films in the 1950s and 60s. The star cast is led by the two pairs – Randhawa and Malika, and Kamraan and Helen. Others in the cast include Madan Puri, Madhumati, Rani etc.

The film has 5 songs listed, which are written by two songwriters – Anjaan and Farooque Kaiser. However, the Geet Kosh does not specify which song is written by which poet. This song, as mentioned above, is an all female duet sung by Lata ji and Usha Mangeshkar. As I was searching for a song for today, I came to this song and stopped. For one, here was a debut opportunity for another 1960s film, and secondly, when I heard it, it turns out to be a favourite from radio listening days, but completely forgotten in the interim. It is wonderful to be re-united with this song once again. Wonderful words, enchanting music and rhythm, and quickfire synchronized rendition – all combine to make a winner. From the sounds of it, it seems to be a twin dance song, and could likely have been picturized on Malika and Helen. I am just guessing, but yes, I would request other knowledgeable readers and friends, to add more information about the on screen performances.

Song – Hamre Sajan Ghar Aaye  (Do Matwaale) (1966) Singer – Lata Mangehskar, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – [Unattributed] [either Anjaan or Farooque Kaiser], MD – GS Kohli
Lata Mangeshkar + Usha Mangeshkar

bhool hui hai meri

daulat ho to maang loon waapas

poochho na hum se tanhaayion mein
hum pe kya kya beeti
ho o o o
dil dhadka hai saans ruki hai
samjho qayaamat tooti

samjho qayaamat tooti
phir bhi ye dil pyaar ka maara
tere hi gun gaaye
hamre sajan ghar aaye
haaye
aaye sajan ghar aaye

It was a surprise for many – when the Mukesh Geet Kosh was published (in 1985), and the compilation, at that time, was able to list less than a thousand songs in all – filmi, non filmi, other languages all combined. It was a general impression carried amongst the fans that well, yes, Mukesh has not sung as many songs as Rafi Sb, but then, less than thousand?? And then, it became a new topic to write about and discuss – why is it so that the impression is that Mukesh has recorded a lot many more songs than are popularly known.

Remembering Mukesh on the 94th anniversary of his birth today (22nd July, 2017).

This topic became a subject of curiosity amongst fans. Many years later, on an occasion of a get together with famed film historian and writer, Nalin ji Shah (of Bombay), this topic got discussed. I was part of that get together. Nalin explained this quite at length. As per him, this is a mental extrapolation that happens in the minds of the fans. While the main line playback singers like Rafi Sb, Kishore Kumar etc have their compilations listed in terms if multiple thousands of songs, still, the human mind captures and sustains a limited number as popular an favorites. No doubt, if one listens to an unheard or an obscure song, the appreciation is most certainly there. But the mind would retain only so much in the memory, as favorites. So when that number is juxtaposed against the total list of compilation, there is a level of appreciation associated with the estimate of the quantity versus the list of what a personal preference would term as “good quality” favorites. Given the case of Rafi Sb, this number may work out to be 1 is to maybe 4 or 5, in the minds of discerning fans.

When a similar sense of reasoning gets applied to the portfolio of Mukesh’s recordings, a different outcome appears. When a discerning fan would apply this estimation to the compilation of Mukesh’s list of songs, then the estimate of the quantity versus the list of “good quality” favorites would work out to be 1 is to maybe 1 or 2. And then just by an expectation of the extrapolation, the mind succinctly assumes that there are or there will be many more songs of the singer, that are not retained in the memory as “good quality” favorites. And hence the disbelief about the total listed in the compilation.

In other words, as a general impression, the ratio of number of songs of Mukesh that have captured the interest of listeners, and are listed as “good quality” favorites, is probably much higher than the other main line singers, who have shared more or less the same timelines as career contemporaries.

That, is then the curious quality of the singing of this soulful voice. There have been references – some music directors did not consider him good enough. At time he himself did not consider himself good enough. And yet, despite being a singer of one and two songs in most of his films, there is a something special that he injects into the rendition, that makes the song memorable. The sound of his singing has a golden ring of sincerity, as if the voice is coming from his soul and not just from his lungs. Pick up any listing of his songs; I daresay you would be hard pressed to drop un-likeable non-favorites from that list.

I would agree with this perspective and this explanation given by Nalin ji. Yes, definitely, there is that something compellingly charismatic in this voice.

Yes, known and liked better for his poignant and sad renditions – Raja ji has rightly observed that such songs of Mukesh serve as a soothening balm to a troubled mind, there are some so well known charmingly fast paced fun songs that he has rendered. Sample this list – “Ruby O Ruby, Jaane Mehboobi” (from ‘Chaahat’, 1971), “Tauba Ye Matwaali Chaal” (from ‘Pathar Ke Sanam’, 1967), “Ye Mausam Rangeen Samaa” (from ‘Modern Girl’, 1961), “Socha Tha Pyaar Hum Na Karenge” (from ‘Bluff Master’, 1963), “Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega” (from ‘Sangam’, 1964), “Ruk Ja O Jaane Waali Ruk Ja” (from ‘Kahnaiyya’, 1959), “Hum To Tere Aashiq Hain Sadiyon Puraane” (from ‘Farz’, 1967), “Teri Nigaahon Pe Mar Mar Gaye Hum” (from ‘Shabnam’, 1964), “Phir Milengi Kahaan, Aisi Tanhaaiyaan” (from ‘Bhaavna’, 1972), “Dekho Mausam Kya Bahaar Hai” (from ‘Opera House’, 1961), “Aasmaan Pe Hai Khuda Aur Zameen Pe Hum” (from ‘Phir Subah Hogi’, 1958), “Nain Tumhaare Mazedaar O Janaab e Aali” (from ‘Junglee’, 1961), “Kisi Nargisi Nazar Ko Dil Denge Hum” (from ‘Main Nashe Mein Hoon’, 1959), “Zara Sambhaalna Meri Jaan Apni Nigaahen” (from ‘Aaya Toofaan’, 1964), “Dil Tadap Tadap Ke Keh Raha Hai Aa Bhi Ja” (from ‘Madhumati’, 1958), “Mast Nazar Dekh Idhar” (from ‘Ek Dil Sau Afsaane’, 1963), “Yaad Aayi Aadhi Raat Ko Kal Raat Ki Tauba” (from ‘Kanhaiyya, 1959), “Ae Dil e Awaara Chal” (from ‘Dr Viday’, 1962). . . I could go on and on and on.

Today’s song belongs to that fast paced fun category. The film is ‘Mehndi Lagi Mere Haath’ from 1962. The words are written by Anand Bakshi and the music is from the baton of Kalyanji Anandji. Yet one more charming rendition from this voice that never ceases to amaze.

Song – Teri Wo Chaal Hai Ke Tauba  (Mehndi Lagi Mere Haath) (1962) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Kalyanji Anandji
