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

Hullo to all Atulwaasis

Let us have a fun song from the 1981, Shomu Mukherjee produced & directed “Fiffty Fiffty” (and this is how fifty is spelt in the title card) which was certified on 15/10/1981 and released on 13/11/1981. It starred Rajesh Khanna and Tina Munim with Om Shivpuri (Bihari), Purnima (Mrs. Thakur), Amarnath (Thakur Vijendra Singh who is killed by Mr. Bihari before the titles), IndraniMukerjee (Mrs. Bihari who becomes dumb due to Mr. Bihari), Jairaj, Anita Guha, Nazir Hussain, Johny Whisky, CS Dubey, Jankidas, Jagdeep, Mushtaq Merchant, Kader Khan and Ranjeet.

It is a year since the last song of “Baalika Badhu” (1976) was posted. That song “Arey Doli Mein Sawaar Sajni Ka Pyaar” was in the vocals of R D Burman. It was on RDB also called Panchamda’s birthday. That was a baraat song full of fun and frolic. Today we will have one more song- a patriotic song in the voice of the legendary Mohammad Rafi. It is written by Anand Bakshi.

Hullo to all atulwaale

I am desperately trying to stop myself from writing anything in praise of Sunil Dutt (6 june 1929- 25 may 2005). I am trying to avoid writing anything that is already written here on the blog or anywhere else in the cyber world.

With this post, the blog now carries 700 songs by Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

The story of Laxmikant Pyaarelal reads like a dream rags-to-riches story. But it is also a story of hard work and persistent effort. Laxmikant, the senior partner in the team, was three years elder to Pyaarelal. Interestingly, both were born on 3rd of the month, Laxmikant in November and Pyaarelal in September. Pyaarelal is the son of the renowned musician Ram Prasad Sharma. Although active in the film industry since the latter part of 1930s, Ram Prasad did some films independently from 1947 to 1950. Not adept with commercial acumen, his financial status was poor most of his life. Pyaarelal, his eldest son, had to start working as a musician in recording studios at the age of 12, to support his family. The story of Laxmikant’s childhood is even more depressing. He was raised in the slums of Vile Parle in Bombay. His father passed away when he was just a toddler. A friend of his father supported him and guided him towards learning music. With time, his talent shone through, and he too started working as a musician in the film industry.

Remembering Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on the 19th anniversary of his passing away today (25th May).

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 13
———————————————————————-

गाता जाये बंजारा

That is the image that forms in the mind. A distant, unfamiliar scenario. A solitary person trudging along a dusty road that leads through farms and fields, passing through towns big and small.

There is a purpose in the pace. There is a steadiness in the tread. There seems to be an unhurried and patient urgency in the forward movement.

Is he searching for someone, for something? Is he expecting a certain destination? I don’t know. The landmarks, they come and go, the milestones pass by. But he appears not to halt anywhere, never seems to take rest. Just a pause at a milestone, sees it with a searching eye, takes another breath, and then presses on.

He seems to be carrying something, slung on the shoulders. Is that an instrument of music? Or is it something else? What is it, I am not able to make out.

Yesterday (27 april 2017), sometime around noon, I got to hear the very sad news that Vinod Khanna had passed away.
I had logged onto Twitter for a bit – and immediately saw a tweet saying “One of the most handsome actors of Hindi movies. RIP”. My heart sank. Soon it was clear that the person being discussed, and now trending as a hashtag, was our own beloved Vinod Khanna.

Recently a picture of Vinod Khanna had been circulating on social media. It shocked many (including myself) as it showed him in a very frail condition. I, for one, was not even aware that he was ailing. But nowadays, with advances in medical science, you tend to expect recovery, especially for someone barely 70.

It was not to be.

The end was therefore unexpected for me – and I think, for many.
