Solo Songs of Mukesh

Numerically, in terms of not only number of solo songs but also number of films or music directors, Mukesh seems to have slack year in so far as his career take-off stage is concerned. He did have three solos in “Tohafa’, and ‘Do Dil’ each, and one in Beete Din.

Arson Pe Sitara Hai Wo – Beete Din – A Dinkar Rao

Jiya Beimaan… Bas Mein Paraye Hai, Din-Din Dhale Jawani – Do Dil – Govind Ram – D N Madhok

Pyar Jata Ke Apna Bana Ke Wo Gaye Wo Gaye – Do Dil – Govind Ram – D N Madhok

Le Matki AAja Radha Ri, Ghar Se Kisi Bahane – Do Dil – Govind Ram – D N Madhok

Kahan Tak Jafa Husnwalon Ki sahate – Tohafaa – 1947- M A Rauf (Usmania) – Saquiba Lakhanavi

Ek Aisa Geet Sunao Tan Man Mein Aag Lagao – Tohfa – M A Rauf (Usmania) – Nazir Hyderabadi

Kisne Chheda Manka Taar – Tohfa – M A Rauf (Usmania) – Shanti Arora

We will take special note of

Shri Kamal Netra Stotram – Neel Kamal – with chorus –  B Vasudev –
