What happens when a tragedy queen acts opposite a comic genius ? The tragedy queen begins to act cheerful. Thus we have seen a cheerful Meena Kumari opposite Kishore Kumar in several movies of 1950s.

Even Kishore Kumar’s elder brother acting opposite Meena Kumari could have the same effect on her. “Farishta” (1958) was a Pancholi Production movie. It was directed by Ravindra Dave. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Mubarak, Anita Guha, Sohrab Modi, Mehmood, Nana Palsikar, Sheikh Murad, Mridula etc in it.

There have been three movies titled “Sanskaar”, which were released in 1940, 1952 and 1958. The songs of these three movies are difficult to come by. Conventional wisdom suggests that songs of recent movies should be more easily available but the case is just the reverse here. Songs of “Sanskaar”(1940) and “Sanskaar”(1952) are more easily available than that of “Sanskaar”(1958).:)

Today’s song is from a ( supposedly) crime thriller, ‘Detective'(1958).

The second half of the 1950s and the first half of the 1960s saw a host of crime, murder, mystery and ‘whodoneit’ type films. Hindi film industry is famous its “herd mentality” where trends get established after the success of films of certain genre. Once films of certain genre becomes a hit, most producers seek to make films on similar themes and stories.

(And from there I also sent message on the ‘whattsapp group’ so the ‘Sholay fans’ in the group could watch it:) )

Indian film industry is one of the biggest film industries of the world-by way of number of films produced(together in all languages) and the number of people involved in this industry. There was some kind of a survey data published on an Internet site ( now defunct)a few years ago, which published a list of 7000+ names of actors and actresses in Hindi films from 1931 to 2000 AD. Dr Surjit singh ji put the list on RMIM forum and I copied it from there.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 15
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘छ’
“छोड़िए गुस्सा हुज़ूर ऐसी नाराज़ी भी क्या”

वो बादशाह सुरों का (He, the monarch of musical notes)

This phrase is used as the intro caption by one of the fans who uploads many songs of Rafi Sb on YouTube. (His name is Ahsaan Qasim.  He is a dear friend, and part of the wide circle of collector friends).

I have discussed in one of my earlier posts, about Rafi Sb’s cognizance of the emotional intent of a song, and his ability to capture and express its exact flavor and nuance, when he would sing it. This ability made his playback voice so intensely an integral subsumed part of the on screen performance, that his voice seemed to dissolve into the persona on screen, losing its own identity. And Rafi Sb had no favorites in this regard. His voice became the voice of any and every actor who lip synced his songs on screen. No other singer in this domain has been able to emulate This remarkable and pervasive characteristic of Rafi Sb’s singing. Other singers either have a very unique characteristic of their singing voice that is identifiable in every song they have given their voice to, or the identity of their voice matches the identity of some select actors and on screen roles. As I said, the pervasiveness of this ability of Rafi Sb continues to be unmatched.
