Today’s song is a multi-singer song. It is from the 1976 released Madan Mohla produced and directed “Dus Numbri”. It had Hema Malini {who seemed to be favourite of all the heroes of the 50s & 60s and wanted a lease in their career ;-)} Manoj Kumar and a whole lot of Manoj Kumar-movie-regulars viz Premnath, Pran, Kamini Kaushal and Bindu. The movie was a musical with six songs.

I have very vague memories of what the movie was all about. Something to do with Manoj Kumar and Hema’s families being friends at the start of the movie. Then Premnath gets into a group that has interests in printing fake currency, which Om Shivpuri or Pinchoo Kapoor (Hema’s father) accidentally discovers and so is promptly bumped off, which drives her mother crazy due to shock (mother is also played by Hema, that is shown in Kamini Kaushal’s flashback). Some twist in the story leads Hema to a local Aunty’s adda (tavern) and Manoj Kumar becomes a “Dus Numbri” who is out to expose the evil doers of society. He has Pran (a constable) shadowing him for most of the movie and who is later revealed to be a SP or Commissioner. Then we have Bindu, a dancer, who has some clue to the gang of currency-fakers and that gives us a situation for a song where we have Premnath, Manoj Kumar and Pran (in disguise of course) trying to outwit Bindu into parting with the die of the currency printer. Simple 🙂 . It is later that we come to know that even Bindu is also a cop-in-disguise. Here I must add that only Manoj Kumar’s horrible getup doesn’t give him away but all the other two actors can easily be recognized.

Two songs from the movie is already present on the blog. One was contribution by Avinashji –Ye duniya ek numberi to main dus numberi and other by Maheshji- Na tum ho yaar aaloo na hum hain yaar gobhi.
.
Here is the third song with Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Mukesh as playback singers. Let us enjoy it and wish Prem Nath Malhotra on his birthday today. He would have been 94 today.

He started his journey in Bollywood with “Ajit” in 1948 (of which we don’t have any songs on the blog). The same year we had Premnath in “Aag” his first association with Raj Kapoor and was RK’s debut as producer- director.

Incidentally Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna was Premnath’s sister and his other sister Uma is Prem Chopra’s wife. Premnath’s brothers Narendranath and Rajendranath were also actors. He married Bina Rai, also an actress, in 1953 and his son’s Prem Kishen and Kailashnath (was called Monty in films) were actors. Prem Kishen’s daughter Akanksha is an actress and son Siddharth Malhotra is a director. (Even in these modern times there is a case of same-name confusion:- there is a Sidharth Malhotra who made his acting debut in Karan Johar’s “Student Of the Year” in 2012 who has no connection to the Premnath family).

We have many movies where Premnath has had his brothers-in-law as co-actors. We have seen him as father of Dimple Kapadia in “Bobby” which was his nephew Rishi Kapoor’s debut as an adult. That is also the first role of Premnath that I recollect. Can’t get enough of the head of a fishing community Braganza who had a peculiar way of speaking.

It was later when some black-n-white were telecast by doordarshan that I learnt that Premnath the actor first began as a hero to the likes of Madhubala, Bina Rai, Nimmi etc.I loved his acting in “Johny Mera Naam”. As also the lovable mama of Hema Malini in “Aap Beeti”, sardaar of “Roti Kapda aur Makaan”, etc. His was the central character of “Dharmatma”. He turned producer director after his marriage to Bina Rai. His last screen appearance was in 1985 in “Hum Dono” after which he reitred from acting. He passed away in 1992- 18 days before his 66th birthhday.

Remembering Premnath !

Mukesh and his co-singers –7
———————————————–

There is a school of thought amongst music lovers that the voice of Manna Dey suited better for Raj Kapoor than Mukesh. While technically, there could be substance to the concept, it remains a fact that the empathy evolving from the voice of Mukesh and the emotion and expressions of Raj Kapoor’s acting on screen fitted to a T. No wonder RK upon hearing Mukesh’s demise in far off Detroit city commented that he had lost his soul. I am of the firm opinion that the voice of Mukesh on Raj Kapoor suited most aptly than the actor singing himself.

As far as Manna Dey singing for Raj Kapoor is concerned, the songs from Chori Chori, Shree 420, Dil Hi Toh Hai, Mera Naam Joker etc. come to the mind instantly. Chori Chori and Shree 420, both released in 1956 were at a time when Mukesh was experimenting with many departments of films and had also signed a contract for the film Maashuqa as an actor-singer with heroine none other than Suraiya. The Contractalso had a clause that he would not be singing for anyone else till the completion of the film. The film unfortunately got delayed and so did the successful career of Mukesh.

It is for this reason that even though Mukesh has the iconic solo, a duet with Lata and a triad with Rafi saab and Lata, Manna Dey had his share of songs in the movie Shree 420 including the popular pyar hua ikraar hua hai.

It is said that Mukesh after singing 3 songs in the film conveyed to RK that he could no longer be part of the film because of the Contract that he had signed. So why didn’t Manna Dey establish himself as a permanent or a more frequent RK voice. Well, it was the year 1958, Mukesh free from the clutches of his Contract came back as a playback singer and boy what a return that was.

Madhumati, Parvarish, Phir Subah Hogi and Yahudi all under different composers and picturised on RK and Dilip Kumar were runway hits. Mukesh had found his mojo back. Raj Kapoor understood that with Mukesh giving him playback he need not look any further. The bond between them remained forever. Body and the soul’s bonding was noticed not only by Shankar Jaikishan but by other composers also. Thus, when Raj Kapoor forayed acting for other production houses, it was usually Mukesh who was summoned for playback.

Thus, we have Manna Dey singing only a few songs for Raj Kapoor in spite of the popularity of songs from Shree 420 and Chori Chori in 1956. However, all composers were also aware of the limitations of Mukesh and the versatility of Manna Day especially for the songs based on classical music. It is pertinent to mention the song from Dil Hi Toh Hai 1963. While most of the songs from this film were sung by Mukesh, Roshan the composer rightly found it prudent to have Manna Dey sing the popular Laagaa, chunri mein daag. With due respects to other stalwarts, I am of the firm opinion that no singer could have pulled off this song as elegantly as Manna Dey.

This post and the series as such is on Mukesh’s collaboration with other singers. And in this instance also, it’s not only about Mukesh and Manna Dey singing for RK camp but for all the songs that they rendered together in HFM. But then many songs sung by Manna Dey for Raj Kapoor have also become quite popular and hence I had to devote a majority of the post for their individual songs on Raj Kapoor.

Whilst we are on the discussing the singers in unison, I should highlight that Mukesh has sung a comic solo under Manna Dey’s composition for the film Chamkee (1952). I have always been curious to know why this song was offered to Mukesh as Manna Dey himself was quite apt at singing such songs. One possible reason could be due to the bad phase that Mukesh had entered during this period and this was could have been some kind of help extended.

Coming to today’s post, here is the list of all songs in which Mukesh and Manna Dey featured together. Not surprisingly, most of them are with multiple singers and chorus. Quite a few of them are rare and popular.

1 under Anilda is famous song from a popular film. It is interesting to note that it is sung by four singers whose names start with the letter “M”. Needless to say, it’s the only one of its kind in HFM where they have come together.

2 had many songs by Mukesh featured on Raj Kapoor and Mahendra Kapoor and Manna Dey join in for other actors in the song. Its again rare to find Geeta Dutt in SJ camp.

3 and 4 are under Hemant Kumar who himself was an accomplished singer and composer but got to many sing songs by other singers in his compositions. Mukesh has sung about half a dozen songs under him.

5 is quite a comic song on which our Arunkumar ji has written a detailed post.

S.No Name of the Song Movie (Year of release) Other co-singers if any Music Director Lyricist
1 Kadam kadam se dil de Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen (1959) Mahendra Kapoor, Meena Kapoor Anil Biswas Sahir Ludhianvi
2 Hai aag hamaare seene mein Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai (1960) Geeta Dutt, Mahendra Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar Shankar Jaikishan Shailendra
3 Mujhko mohabbat ho gayi hai Biwi Aur Makaan (1966) Talat Mehmood, Hemant Kumar, Joginder, Hemant Kumar Gulzar
4 Aa tha jab janam liya tha Biwi Aur Makaan (1966) Hemant Kumar Hemant Kumar Gulzar
5 Ye kaun hain ye kaun hain jo besahaara hain Main Sundar Hoon (1971) Asha Bhonsle Shankar Jaikishan Anand Bakshi
6 Besharmi se sharam na kar Teen Chor (1973) Mohammed Rafi Sonik Omi Rajendra Krishan
7 Na tum ho yaar aloo Dus Numbri (1976) Laxmikant Pyarelal Majrooh Sultanpuri
8 Dilruba Dilliwali Dus Numbri (1976) Asha Bhonsle Laxmikant Pyarelal Majrooh Sultanpuri

4, 6, 7 and 8 from the above list are yet to be featured on the blog and I take up song number 7 for representation in this post.

Shri Harish Raghuwanshi of Surat, the compiler of Mukesh Geetkosh has helped me with confirming the correctness of and completeness of the above table of songs. I express my sincere thanks to him for his continued support.

Dus Numbri (1976) in which Mukesh had 04 songs was in continuation with the many songs that he was singing for Manoj Kumar during late sixties and seventies. The title song of this movie remains famous. Strangely, this title song is the only song of this film to be featured on the blog so far. Mukesh and Manoj Kumar’s combination had become quite popular with some outstanding songs. I had read somewhere that they were planning to produce a film upon the return of Mukesh from his US tour in 1976. As we are aware, Mukesh never came back from that tour as he passed away on 27 August 1976 in Detroit. This date being around the corner, my next post will be on his remembrance day and probably starting with a new series.
