Wow, what a song, what a lovely song, what a lovely marathon of a song; so full of words, so full of emotions, so full of insistence of emotions. Rajendra Krishan has outdone himself in writing this song. And so does C Ram, outshine himself in tying this song into threads of music. And what rendition, Lata ji outshines herself. I am hearing this song for the first time today, and have simply fallen in love with it.

THE VELVET MAGIC- TALAT DUETS ….song no. 3
———————————————–

Today’s song is from film Meenar-54. It is a duet of Lata and Talat.

BOMBAY has always been an attraction for outsiders. It is a Dream-City for most people coming from other states. Not every one’s dreams are realised,but it does provide opportunities. Then it is your luck and efforts, which will either make you or break you. This is not only about Film line but people from all walks of like look at Bombay this way.It started from the 17th Century when Bombay was just a cluster of undeveloped islands. In the 18th and 19th century Bombay developed into a Metropolitan city, having a majority of people from outside. Bombay Gazette of 1885 says that , out of a total population of 10 lakhs, almost 9 lakhs were outsiders, i.e, Non-Natives. A Minority of Britishers ruled the majority for a long time.

Without detracting one bit from her merit, capability and musico-longevity, I have to admit that I am not a fan of Asha Bhosle in the same manner as I am of Lataji. That said, there are quite a few of Ashaji’s evergreens – some of them lesser known than her racy raunchy numbers – which touch me more or less the same as some of Lataji’s best.

Ever since Ghulam Haider introduced dholak (belonging to the percussion family) as a major musical instrument for song compositions in the super hit film ‘Khazaanchi’ (1941), it has become an inseparable part of Hindi film songs. In fact in the 50s, prominent music directors started engaging specialist dholak players in the songs’ orchestration. The introduction of dholak in the Hindi film songs has made some of them so rhythmic that a music lover consciously or unconsciously replays the rhythmic beats with his fingers on whatever place he find near him, be it on a sofa hand rest or on a table top or play it on any of the kitchen vessels as Bhagwan did in ‘ kismet ki hawa kabhi garam kabhi naram’ (Albelaa-1951).

Given that during most of the 50s, C Ramchandra was very favorably inclined towards Lata, I was just wanting to find out what is the earliest that he had used the voice of Asha Bhosle. I did a quick scan of the films for which C Ram has composed music, in the Geet Kosh, from 1950 onwards. And unless I made a mistake in my scanning, the film ‘Meenaar’ in 1954 seems to be the first time that Asha Bhosle has sung for C Ramchandra. If not mistaken, then this is likely the first such occasion.
