The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : Male Solo Songs – G M Durrani / Surendra / K L Saigal

Solo Songs of G M Durrani

G M Durrani would go down in the history of Hindi Film Music history as a singer who would have done well in the post-vintage era years, but for the sudden rise of the singers like Mohammad Rafi (in particular), Mukesh, Talat Mahmood and Manna Dey.

When we make this statement today, the statement stands out the test of period. But that is because we have advantage of the hindsight. Let us see how G M Durrani’s solo songs compare with the solo songs of  the male singers of the Golden Era – Mohammad Rafi, Mukesh and Manna Dey –  in the current year of Micro-Review.

Ab Kaun Hai Is Tute Hue Dil Ka Sahara– But Tarash – Ghulam Haider –

Tu Himmat Na Har Musafir – But Taraash – Ghulam Haider

Khel Nahi Gir Gir Ke Sambhalana, Rahi Dekh Sambhal Kar Chalna – Doli- Ghulam Mohammad – Majrooh Sultanpuri

Toota Hua Dil Le Ke Chale Apne Watan Se – Ek Roz – Shyam Sundar – Sarshar Salani

Ek Bewafa Ne Shish-e-Dil Chur Chur Kar Diya – Ek Roz – Shyam Sundar – Sarshar Salani

Hue Hai Qaid Muhabbat Ki Hukamrani Se – Heera – Husnlal Bhagatram – Shams Lakahanavi

I have not been able to locate the soft link to this song:

O Jaanewale Aane Ka Ikarar Kiye Jaa – Mitti – Lal Muhammad + Paignekar

Solo Songs of Surendra

Surendra did continue into the Golden years, but he is considered a vintage era actor-singer.

Ek Baar Phir Se Aaja, Dil Mein Mere Samaa Jaa – Elan – Naushad Ali – Jiya Sarhadi

Tera Jahaan Abaad Hai, Mera Jahan Barbaad Hai – Elan – Naushad Ali – Jiya Sarahadi

Kya Hai Naari Ki Shaan .. Duniya Ko Batlaunga Main – Manjhdhaar – Gyan Dutt – Shams Lakhanavi

Kyon Tu Mujh Se Rooth Gayi Aathon Pahar Dil Yahi Pukare – Manjhdhar – Gyna Dutt 0 Shams Lakhanavi

Solo Songs of K L Saigal

1947 has only one K L Saigal film – Parawana – which has 4 of his solo songs. However, the presence of only one K L Saigal film – and that to  his last one-  in the year, makes the year stand out as a vintage era year, as K L Saigal is one single icon that can be identified with the vintage era.

Jine Kaa Dhang Shikhaye Jaa, Kante Ke Nok Par Khada Muskaye Jaa – Parwana – Khursheed Anwar – D N Madhok

Tut Gaye Sab Sapne Mere.. Ye Do Naina Sawan Bhado Barse Sanj Savaere – Parwana – Khursheed Anwar – D N Madhok

Us Mast Nazar Pe Padi Jo Nazar, Kajre Ne Kaha Mat Dekho Idhar, Dekho Ji Kabhi Ulajh Na Jaana – Parwana – Khursheed Anwar – D N Madhok

Muhabbat Mein Kabhi Aisi Bhi Haalat Ho Jaati Hai….Tabiyat Aut Gabrati Hai Jab Pahlayi Jaati Hai  – Parwana – Khursheed Anwar – D N Madhok

We will take up Micro-view of solo songs of Other Male Playback singers for the year 1947, in our next episode.

In July 2011, I opted to retire from my active career as a practicing management professional. In the 38 years that I pursued this career, I had opportunity to work in diverse capacities, in small-to-medium-to-large engineering companies. Whether I was setting up Greenfield projects or Brownfield projects, nurturing the new start-ups or accelerating the stabilized unit to a next phase growth, I had many more occasions to take the paths uncharted. The life then was so challenging! One of the biggest casualty in that phase was my disregards towards my hobbies - Be with The Family, Enjoy Music form Films of 1940s to mid-1970s period, write on whatever I liked to read, pursue amateur photography and indulge in solving the chess problems. So I commenced my Second Innings to focus on this area of my life as the primary occupation. At the end of four years, I am now quite a regular blogger. I have been able to build a few very strong pen-relationships. I maintain contact with 38-years of my First Innings as freelance trainer and process facilitator. And yet, The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
