Solo Songs of Mohantara Talpade
Mohantara Talpade was a well-recognised playback voice in mid’40s. Year 1946 has a very respectable number of her solo songs. She has been chosen as the playback singer by a wide range of music directors in this year, which does impart an inherent variety to her songs.
Mere Man Mein Jaga Pyar, Mera Naach Utha Sansar – Amar Raj – Feroz Nizami – Pandit Phani
Rooth Gaye Mose Manmohan Ab Sawan Ko Kya KaruN – Dharti- Bulo C Rani – Pandit Indra
Yeh Kisne Bajai Murli – Duniya Naach Uthi – Gokul – Sudhir Phadke – Qamar Jalalabadi
(Credited as Mohantara Ajnkya, with a male voice and chorus)
Aai Piya Milan Ki Bahar, KaruN PhooloN Se Apna Singaar – Kuldeep – Sushant Banerjee – Nawa Naqvi
Hawa Chale Sany Sany, Kaua Kare Kany Kany – Phoolwari – Hansraj Behl – Pandit Indra
The tune is parody of Ghata Ghanghor Ghor Mor Machae Shor (Taansen, 1943)
Vyakul Hai Panghat Pe Radha Bechari Sanz Bhai.. – Pujari – Hansraj Behl – Wali Sahab
Jai Ambe… Jai Chandike Kultarini – Rajputani – BulO C Rani – Pandit Indra
Solo Songs of Raajkumari
Rajkumari has a fairly respectable solo song – both quantitatively and qualitatively. There must be quite some more solo songs which either do not get formally credited to her(because of the the inadequate authenticated information) or the songs that do not have soft – YT-links.
Tum Le Lo ….Batue Bhai – Chamakati Bijli – Vasant Kumar Nayadu – Sarswati Kumar ‘Deepak’
HFGK is silent about the singer and the lyricist
Nainan Mein Koi Chhaye KyoN, Baras Rahe Dono – Insaaf – H P Das – D N Madhok
Mere Dil Mein Koi Na aae, Hae Re – Insaaf – H P Das – D N Madhok
Duniya, GariboN Ki Duniya, Badi Hai Suhani – Insaaf – H P Das – D N Madhok
Main Sajan Ke Man Mein, MaiN Ek Chand Man Mein Chhipai Baithi Hun – Maharani Minal Devi – Saraswati Devi –
Some comments on the YT claim that song is actually by Amirbai Karnataki . Correspondingly Mere Maina Madhubaina, Tu Kahana Sajana Se Sapno Mein Aye Na ought to have been credited to Rajkumar instead of Amirbai Karanatki as is seen now @ HFGK.
Sajan Aao, Man Ki Nagariya Basao – Rupa – Pt. Govind Ram – Rammurti
PhooloN Ko Chhed Kar Cheed Kar Vaade Sada Chali Gai – Shah-e-Misar- Shanti Kumar – Rupbani
HFGK is silent about the singer.
Tan Pinjare Mein Man Ka Panchhi, Chatak-Chata Kar Bole – Toofan Queen – Chitragupta, M A – Shyam Hindi
