# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 4 # Nitin Mukesh #
———————————————–———————————–——————

Welcome all to this fourth article in this series where we are discussing the ‘special voices of the seventies’ and the nostalgia and memories associated with the songs of these ‘special voices’ from Hindi Movies.

As Gulzar Sahab has said in one of his famous albums. . .

door kahin jab wo pahaad ka tilaa baadlon se dhhak jaata tha
to ek aawaaz sunaayi deti

Zaahir si baat hain ki umr ke jis padaav par aap honge, aur jo yaadein aapke zehan mein bas gayin hongi, aap ko bhi kuchh aawaazein sunaayi deti hongi, aur ho sakta hai unka andaaz shaayad kuchh alag sa hota hoga, jaise ki mujhe lagta hai ki ye aawaaz. . .

Noorie. . .     Noorie. . .

Lekin ye aawaaz to mere dil ki gehraaiyon mein tab se hi utar gayi thi. . .

Since, and so far, I vaguely remember to have heard this song playing on the radio in home and too on a dark rainy night. Maybe I was in half sleep when this song was playing on radio. Even today whenever I get to listen to this song, I have the same nostalgic feeling always

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

May be that time I didn’t even have this knowledge of who was singing but as I grew up and this voice also grew up over the years leaving behind very few yet unforgettable gems in the history of HFM. The most popular of them all, I think, must be this,

zindagi kin aa toote ladi ee
pyaar kar le ghadi do ghadi

Yes!! Today we are discussing Nitin Mukesh under this series of ‘Special Voices’. As I took this journey through his biography and filmography (or discography), as usual, I am filled with ‘nostalgia’ and the years and those songs which brings back many memories. Maybe he has sung very less songs in numbers but almost all of them are so special and unique that one cannot forget them easily.

Nitin Mukesh was born on 27th June, 1950, to a celebrity father who by then had established himself in HFM. There were days he saw his father struggling and they didn’t have enough money to pay even his school fees. And on the other hand, Mukesh, who unlike him wanted that his children get good higher education, sent Nitin to the London School of Economics. However, like his father Nitin was also not interested and not good in studies and hence requested his father to allow him to come back home and leave studies and pursue singing. There after Nitin used to accompany his father on all of his musical tours and stage programmes. He was doing this since he was nine.

As his father Mukesh used sing his own songs in these programmes he asked his son that he should sing other singers’ or specifically Rafi Saab’s songs. Nitin Mukesh remembering this has talked about how great his father was and how much both of them respect and loved Rafi Saab’s singing. It is said that Raj Kapoor wanted that Mukesh’s son should sing a song for his son Rishi in the movie ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) and so Nitin had given his voice for Rishi Kapoor in this song.

Earlier Nitin Mukesh was mainly interested in singing and doing stage programmes only, however on insistence from his father he took on to singing in his movies and thus make a debut in singing with this song from ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’ (1974), a duet with Vani Jairam,

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

Moving forward with Gaapoochi Gaapoochi Gam Gam’ (‘Trishul’, 1978) and ‘Wo Aurat hai tu mehbooba’ from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ also of 1978. And reaching the popular heights with Zindagi ki naa toote ladi’ in ‘Kranti’ (1981). He continued the same magic with two songs from the movie ‘Nakhuda-1981’ of which “Suno Ik Baat Bolen” is already posted on the blog. After that very few playback songs, as I think he mainly got involved with doing stage shows only and singing ‘bhajans’.

During those years I was in Kota (Rajasthan) and I had bought his album on cassette, ‘Nehanjali’ by HMV which had ‘bhajans’ composed by Shekhar Sen. This album was released in 5/89 and it was added to my collection on 28.10.1989 (may be around ‘Diwali’ festival, if I am correct).

However the songs of ‘Eeshwar’ (1989) especially “Ram ji Ne Dhanush Toda”  and one song in particular from the movie ‘Clerk’ (1989) – “Rakh Gita Par Haath”, are those which were quite good and were appreciated well, with ‘Ye Paisa Bolta Hai” from ‘Kaala Baazaar’ being the most popular. Other favorites that I want to list are – “Tu Mujhe Suna Main Tujhe Sunaaun’ from ‘Chaandni’ (1989), and ‘So Gaya Ye Jahaan’  topping the popularity charts in the previous year of 1988. Among his other songs I like ‘Zindagi Ka Naam Dosti’ from ‘Khudgarz’ (1987}, and “Dil Ne Dil Se Kya Kahaa” from ‘Aaina’ (1993). However, as said earlier Nitin Mukesh had been continuing with his stage shows, and we can find the details of his latest tours on his website here.

On our blog so far, we have only four of Nitin Mukesh songs (all duets) posted. Out of the many of his songs that are yet to make it on the blog, and taking a ‘liberty’ for this series I have selected a song not from the decade of 1971-80 but, for this today’s post I have selected a ‘very special and lovely song’ from a 1989 movie, for this today’s special day too. This is a song from the 1989 movie ‘Santosh’, which is also making a debut on the blog today.

This song was lying dormant in my memory and got revived in 2010-2011, after many years, during a discussion with a friend.

Thereafter, when I joined this blog as a ‘lyrics contributor’ I had shared this song with Atul ji in 2012. In fact, thereafter I have shared all the songs of this movie with him. However they are yet to be posted. It is opportune that Nitin Mukesh’s birth anniversary is on 27th June’ which incidentally is a ‘special day’ for me too. 🙂

‘Santosh-1989’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. The star cast includes Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar and others. The story of this film was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat, assisted by Ashok Naik. Cinematography was done by Radian Kinagi. Lyrics of this movie were written by Santosh Anand and Manoj Kumar. Music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film Was passed by Censor board on 28.02.1989.

A brief about this movie from IMDB is reproduced here below;

Cold-hearted and manipulative Kamla has fallen in love with a poor man and marries him and has a child named Santosh. She soon realizes that life is not fun living in poverty, and abandons her child and husband, and returns back to her father and his wealth. She re-marries millionaire Kailashpathi, and has a child named Kundan from him. Years pass by, Kundan and Santosh have both grown up. Kundan is the owner of the mill with his mom, while Santosh is a struggling mill worker, and a union leader. A confrontation ensues between the mill and the workers, and Kamla is able to negotiate a settlement and get the workers back to work. But then, she fails to keep her promise to the workers. Santosh opposes this, and she sets her goons and Kundan against him. Santosh is abducted and held prisoner by Kamla and Kundan, and the only way he can be released is when he compromises with them.

The today’s song is a duet song sung by Nitin Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Herma Malini respectively, while many other artists are present and can be seen in the picturization of this song. One can easily spot Sarika in this crowd of party-goers.

In Hindi movies, people are shown falling in love even though they often cannot afford it. Just like one cannot sing bhajan on an empty stomach (one Hindi saying), one cannot afford to fall in love unless one is financially independent and secure (it is a Hindi saying of my creation 🙂 )

We often find people telling us that they remained uneducated because of poor financial conditions, but we will never find a drunkard who allows poor financial conditions to come in the way of him becoming a drunkard. Likewise, in Hindi movies we will never find a pair of lead actors telling us that they were not in a situation to lip sync a romantic duet because of lack of financial independence.

“Trishul”(1978) has as many as four duet songs and they are picturised on three pairs. Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman lip sync one duet while Shashi Kapoor and Hema Malini lip sync two duets. Going by the story, Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman were not in a position to lip sync a romantic duet but they did so even if they could not afford it.

Shashi Kapoor and Hema Malini are both shown as financially independent, so they can very well afford to fall in love and sing duets. They sing two duets and that is quite acceptable as far as I am concerned.

I quite like the fact that Amitabh Bachchan and Raakhi do not sing any duet in the movie because they actually cannot afford to.

The seventh and final song from the movie happens to be the fourth duet of the movie. It is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Lata. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is lip synced by Sachin and Poonam Dhillon in a swimming pool. Now, here is a pair of actors who are college students and they are financially dependent on their parents. But like archtypical drunkards, they do not allow their lack of financial independence come in the way of singing a romantic duet.

With this song, “Trishul”(1978) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

In our discussion of HFM, words of shringaar ras like “pyaar”, “Prem”, “ishq” etc dominate, as can be seen from the category of songs in the blog. There are as many as 2635 songs (over 20 %) of the genre of “expression of love” in the blog. That tells the story.

A very Happy Holi to 9th holi today (13 march 2017) on this blog. And every holi we have Atul posting songs for the occasion. We have approximately 50 songs to celebrate holi. So does that mean we are out of songs? No, not at all! How can that happen? As long as we have Hindi Movies and as long as they have songs in them we can be sure of at least one holi song a year if not more. Oh, I seem to be echoing Sudhirji’s thoughts from his 2015’s holi post. But that is the truth of the matter. Holi will never go out of fashion in Bollywood. The only thing that might change is that people will request others to have dry holi this year as many parts of the country are facing drought conditions. And still others will opt for using organic colours that are less harmful to the skin etc. But what about the general public of the country who cannot afford the expensive organic stuff they will stick to the traditional gulal in various hues.

How many times have we heard the refrain- real life imitating reel life? Or someone says exactly as in the movies. Well I experienced it last year.

Yash Chopra was born on 27 september (1931) whereas Lata’s birthday falls one day later on 28 september (1929). “We re both librans and thus understand each other as persons, perfectly..” wrote Yash Chopra in his Foreward to Lata Geetkosh (vol VI) which was complied and edited by Snehashish Chatterji, a Lata devotee par excellence who has made it his life’s mission to bring out all the lyrics of Lata in various volumes of Lata Geetkosh and the above Vol VI is the first volume in the series which covers Lata’s songs from 1966 to 1970.. The first few pages of the book, which give the statistics of Lata songs during that period is in itself worth the price of the volume (Rs/-695/-). These statistics page tell us that Lata sang 549 songs in 233 movies from 1966-1970 which included 382 solos, 132 duets (with male singers) and 32 duets (with female singers) and three other songs.

“Doosri Sita” got released in 1974 and sank without a trace, taking with it the musical score. Only in the course of R D Burman revival, did the songs resurface again. I remember listening to them on radio in the late 70s and early 80s on Vividh Bharati. The name Doosri Sita, though never really registered itself in my mind.
