# 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.

“Baalak”(1969) was directed by Adarsh for Kala Mandal, Bombay. This “social” movie had Master Suraj (Sarika), Jaimala, Dev Dutt, Jayshree T, Manmohan Krishna, Shyama, Jeewan, Jagdeep, Junior Mehmood, Abhi Bhttacharya, Chand Usmani, Bipin Gupta, Hiralal, Dhumal etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Baalak”(1969) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

The movie was a tear jerker. If anyone does not believe me, then the picturisation of this song will turn him into a believer 🙂 The picturisation shows the parents of a new born kid dying and the hapless kid is brought up by her elder sister. The elder sister too gets married and goes away while the kid (Baby Suraj aka Sarika) finds herself being treated as a child labourer. This song gets played in the background all this while.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors visible in the picturisation.


Song-Bhagwaan ki dekho bhool (Baalak)(1969) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Dattaram

Lyrics

ye kaisi aandhi chali
ye kaisa toofaan
khilte hi murjha gaye
maat pita se praan

bhagwan ki dekho bhool
bichhad gaya daali se ek phool
raha ab kis’se naata
aasmaan ab pita hai iska
aur dharti hai maata
bhagwaan ki dekho bhool

ye kismat ki baat
hai kaali raat aur kaanton se ghira hai gulaab
vidhi ne na jaane kin ghadiyon mein likhi hai ye kitaab
likhi hai ye kitaab
ab samaaj ke atyaachaaron ka
jab chakr chalega
dar lagta hai toofaanon mein
kaise diya jalega
kaise diya jalega
diya jis maalik ne praan
usi ki hogi ab pehchaan
jo paalak sab ka kahaata
aasmaan ab pita hai iska
aur dharti hai maata
bhagwaan ki dekho bhool
bichhad gaya daali se ek phool
raha ab kis’se naata
aasmaan ab pita hai iska
aur dharti hai maata
bhagwaan ki dekho bhool

ye kisne chhedi shahnaayi
kiski chali hai doli
kis bhaai se bichhad chali hai ye behna anboli
ye behna anboli
ik pyaar thha wo bhi roothh chala
ik taar thha wo bhi toot chala
do nanhi nanhi aankhon se aansu ka jharna phoot chala
aansu ka jharna phoot chala
hui door ye sar se chaanv
behen bhi chali hai apne gaanv
kaun ab dheer bandhaata
aasmaan ab pita hai iska
aur dharti hai maata
bhagwaan ki dekho bhool
bichad gaya daali se ek phool
raha ab kis’se naata
aasmaan ab pita hai iska
aur dharti hai maata

ghar ghar mein kitne bachchon par
yoon zulm dhaaye jaate hain
hadd hai ghulaab ki patti se
patthar katwaaye jaate hain
patthar katwaaye jaate hain
bhagwaan ka roop ye baalak hain
jis par barse nit chingaari
naari bachche par zulm kare
wo naari sachmuch hatyaari
wo naari sachmuch hatyaari
hai nanhi si ye jaan
ke jis par laakhon hain toofaan
chhupa hai kahaan vidhaata
aasman ab pita hai iska
aur dharti hai maata
bhagwaan ki dekho bhool
bichhad gaya daali se ek phool
raha ab kis’se naata
aasmaan ab pita hai iska
aur dharti hai maata
bhagwaan ki dekho bhool

“Jyoti”(1969) was produced by A Devdas and directed by Dulal Guha for Chitra Mitra productions. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Nivedita, Aruna Irani, Abhi Bhattacharya, Tarun Bose, Moppet Soorja aka Sarika, Lalita Kumari, Jagdeep, Gopal Saigal, Pardesi, Shekhar Purohit etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the four songs that have been covered in the past :-

Here is the fifth and final song from “Jyoti” (1969) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The song is picturised as a Lord Krishn bhajan song on Nivedita and her kid. Her kid is shown growing up as the bhajan progresses and by the time the last stanza appears, the kid grows up to become baby Sarika who(she plays the son, I think) joins Nivedita in singing the last stanza of the bhajan. Sanjeev Kumar, not quite as god fearing as his adarsh bhartiya naari wife, is seen tearing his hair apart at all this bhajan singing. 🙂

With this song, “Jyoti” (1969) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Blog Day : 3486 Post No. : 14002

Post number 14000 was written by Sudhir Ji on 1 february 2018. In that post, he made several interesting observations and he wanted my take on them. I will try to cover those points and make some points of my own.

While brieflyly discussing the previous thousandth posts, Sudhir Ji made this observation:

The 1K post

He did write that he expects the blog to go from “strength to strength” and that he would “. . .add many more thousands of songs […] in the times to come”. So this is one question I would like Atul ji to respond to specifically – was his expectations that we shall reach, where we have reached today, and still going strong??

It was 30 march 2009 when this 1000th post was published. That was nine years ago. The world was a very different place from what it has become now. I was based at Jabalpur and I hoped to stay there in future as well. I was happily settled there. It turned out that got transferred to another state in a few months time. If I was not able to foresee what was going to happen in a few months time, then how was I going to see into the future of the blog. 🙂

I was then like a batsman who worries about where his next run is going to come from. By that time, I had worked out my standard strategy of posting 6 songs daily for three days followed by seven songs on the fourth day thus adding 25 songs every four day. Repeating the same process four times, that would give me 100 songs in 16 days. So I was happily clocking 100 songs every 16 days. Those were simple days when we had not thought about “debutant” movies, “YIPPEE” movies etc. Even the concept of contributions by regulars had not taken shape. We did not have the team of contributors that we now have. I did not even have my pets at that time that have become such an important part of my life for the last six- seven years.

The pages about list of songs that we take for granted now a days were not there at that time the 1000th post was published. The “yearwise list of songs” was introduced seven days later, on 6 april 2009, followed by “moviewise list of songs” on 19 april 2009.

Very few songs were covered till then, so deciding upon “new” songs to cover was quite simple and easy those days. I was able to cover my six to seven song a day fairly comfortably, by the first half of the day itself.

No, I never thought at that time that the blog would one day have 14000 songs in it. At that time, I thought that I would run out of songs to cover after I had covered around 2500 songs. 🙂

Song post number 2000 was a rail song posted on 27 september 2009. The blog by now has 90 rail songs. I still have at least one great rail song up my sleeve. It is lying in the drafts for last seven years. It is a kind of song that may be used for a future thousandth song.

The “music directorwise list of songs” was introduced on 3 november 2009 and thus the three important song lists were put in place a little after the posting of the 2000th song in the blog.

There has been this demand for singerwise list of songs as well. Even that may come up, if I could persuade myself to do that. 🙂

As far as Raja’s tendency to enrich English dictionary with words like ‘mind-bloggling’, ‘gangout’, etc is concerned, let me assure our readers that Raja has been at it even before this blog began. We have been together in a cricket forum since 2005 and it was then and there that he had coined a term called “Atulism” for my kind of humour. He seems to have inspired others in the blog and now we find others too coining terms like “YIPPEE”, “Atulites” etc. 🙂

Raja had written the writeups for the 3000th and 4000th posts in the blog. These two posts also happened to be the thousandth posts of Lata and Rafi respectively.

5000th post was unprecedented for the blog for the levels of planning that it involved. It too combined an artist’s personal milestone with blog milestone, but the artist was far lesser known that Lata and Rafi. This less known artist, viz Bulo C Rani, was the composer of the iconic qawwali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“. This song was a long pending “farmaish” by many people.

The planning for this post began by the time the blog had around 4700 songs in it. Bulo C Rani was only on 21 songs at that time. His songs (most of them obscure) began to be posted in the blog with suspicious regularity and his 100th post coincided with the 5000th song in the blog on 13 november 2011.

This date, 13 november became an important date as far as thousandth posts for this blog are concerned. It was exactly one year later on 13 november 2012 saw the 7000th song being posted, though at that time this coincidence went unnoticed. It was only while we were planning for 9000th post that we realised that 13 november 2011 and 2012 had seen posting of 5000th and 7000th posts. So we went into an overdrive to ensure that the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013.

The above observations also mean that the blog was covering 2000 songs per year from 2011 to 2013. This led to the blog achieving its peak strike rate of 4.63 songs per day when the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013. Had we maintained this rate till today (2 february 2018), we would be on 16140 instead on 14000 !

We were unable to maintain that rate and we have fallen to a rate barely above 4 songs per day. But the fact that the blog still adds “new” songs daily (albeit at a lower rate) without fail means that we are going on and on and adding more songs.

Preparation for the 10000th song was quite a remarkable exercise involving tremendous teamwork and planning for nearly three weeks. All regulars of the blog wrote articles and they themselves were introduced through articles written by other regulars. That mega exercise then culminated into the posting of the 10000 th song that rewrote HFM history. The behind the story tales of the preparations and waiting for the 10000th post are fond memories that are still fresh in the minds of regulars despite the passage of more than three years.

The way the blog has evolved with time is something that neither I nor others would have visualised in the past. We nowadays interact online on whatsapp, email, facebook, phone etc. We have had several togethers, inadvertently coined “gangout” by Raja. They are in addition to bilateral meetings, of course.

I have attended just one “gangout” in December 2014 at Mumbai, which has been my only such meeting so far. I have had meetings with some regulars at Delhi, Nagpur, Lucknow etc as well.

The interactions with other regulars have led to several ideas that have been implemented in the blog. The list of songs (yearwise, moviewise, MD wise) were introduced as results of suggestions by Raja. The concept of YIPPEE movies came from Pradeep Raghunathan. Covering missing movies in the blog was an idea that came from Khyati Bhatt.

HFM related statistics that are available online (if any) are nowhere in the same league as cricket related statistics. I dream of the day when we will be able to have authentic statistics for artists the way we have authentic statistics from cricketers. Unlike cricket, where records are kept thanks to the British legacy of discipline in cricket, Indians have failed to keep authentic records of their history, including HFM history. Still, there are some diehard HFM fans, and some of them are our own regulars, who are helping collect hard to find details of HFM and putting them in one place for easy reference. We in this blog have covered all the available songs of KL Saigal and Suraiyya, and we are just a few songs short for artists like Naushad, SD Burman, OP Nayyar etc. Even in case of Rafi and Lata, we have already covered nearly 60 % of all their songs.

Whenever we post century (or thousandth) post of an artist, we try to give moviewise breakups of all their songs. For instance, I have given such breakups for Suraiyya, Rajinder Krishan, Naushad, OP Nayyar etc. My plan is to give such breakups for all artists who have more than 100 songs in the blog. That would be extremely useful statistical exercise in the field of HFM. So keep watching the blog in future when we add statistics for all major HFM artists.

We in this blog are extremely strong when it comes to making resolutions and sticking to them. We are more than one month into 2018 and we have managed to live up to the new year blog resolutions for 2018 so far. Even today (2 February 2018), the “debutant” movie (number 3820) has been introduced. So it is time now to introduce the YIPPEE movie of the day.

Here is the ninth and final song from this movie. This final song is a joie de vivre bailgaadi song where Sachin is seen joyously lip syncing this song while moving ever so slowly on a bullock cart, with Sarika too as a co passenger. They would take frequent breaks enroute showing that they were enjoying the journey rather than thinking about the destination. this archtypical Rajshree Production kind of bailgaadi songs were used in some subsequent Rajshree Productions movie as well. The most memorable to such bailgaadi song was Kaun disaa mein leke chalaa re batohiyaa from “Nadiya Ke Paar”(1982).

The song is sung by Jaspal Singh. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as music director.

With this song, ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan (Geet Gaata Chal)(1975) Singer-Jaspal Singh, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
o dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
nadiya bahe re saare bandhanon ko tod
phoolo ki hansi mein basi hai meri jan
mujhko to apna sa lage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang
yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang
man ko na bandha maine kisi ke bhi sang
jal ke oopar tairoon main hans ke samaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
ओ धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

ऊंचे ऊंचे पर्वतों कि बादलों से होड़
ऊंचे ऊंचे पर्वतों कि बादलों से होड़
नदिया बहे रे सारे बंधनों को तोड़
फूलों कि हँसी में बसी है मेरी जान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

यूँ तो मेरी अंखियों ने
देखे कई रंग
यूँ तो मेरी अंखियों ने
देखे कई रंग
मन को ना बाँधा मैंने
किसी के भी संग
जल के ऊपर तैरूँ
मैं हंस के समान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान
मुझको तो अपना सा लागे सारा जहान
धरती मेरी माता पिता आसमान

An out and out theatre person who seemed to have stepped on to the silver screen by accident. My first introduction to Dinesh Thakur was when I went to see a stage play in Delhi. I was in school, and the book-reading bug had bit me big time. I was devouring books by the dozen almost on a weekly basis. I got introduced to a wide variety of written genres and authors. In the midst of this, one stream was reading stage plays. Of course, started with the Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer’s Night Dream’ which was part of our English curriculum. I picked up books of plays written by western authors, and then also got interested in reading plays by Indian authors.

So what is so special about today? It is the birthday of an Atulite. And the wedding anniversary of another. For all this info we have to thank a third Atulite.

Ok I know that was a bit confusing. So here is wishing our Avey-of-Discard (if I may borrow Sudhirji’s code language) a very happy birthday. And thanks to our dejavu007 (another loan from a previous post of Sudhirji ;-)) so we were all activated when Shri. Dejavu007 wished Avey-of-Discard on whatsapp this morning. And promptly without batting an eyelid all of us copycats wished Avey-of-Discard a very Happy Birthday. (I am sure my fellow Atulwaasis won’t mind being called copycats as I was the lead copycat 🙂 ) And the gracious Avey-of-Discard (how about adding a ji to this code name, just a passing thought) gave us the info that it was another regular atulite’s wedding anniversary; that of the NeatInsider (oh I seem to be borrowing heavily today, hope this whole thing is free or today Sudhirji will become a lot richer due to the Byaaj I will have to pay for my borrowings 🙂 )
