Songs of 1945 @ SoY :: Duets – Duets (+) of Vintage Era (Male+) Singers [1]

In our previous Micro View for the years 1948,1947 and 1946 – the so-called last few years of vintage era – we had had food many of duet songs tat could be classified in terms of the respective male singers. However, even as the overall numbers of duet songs for the year appear to be relatively less, it also appears that it may not make much sense to try to segregate these duet songs w.r.t. a male singer. Therefore, what follows is a collection of duets that has been listed in the alphabetical order of name of the film, and if required sub-grouping songs w.r.t. a male singer.

Duet Songs of Other Vintage Era Male Singers (1)

We will find some singers here who undoubtedly are well-known names, then and even today.  However, the number of their duets are not enough to justify a separate listing. Hence, placed here.

The Micro View of Best Songs of 1946 @ SoY – Duets – Male-Female Duets [1]

We now take up the third leg – The Duets – of ‘Best songs of 1946: And the winners are?’. As per our Micro View Practice, we will cover this leg of the Micro View journey in three stages – Male-Female Duets, Male- Male Duets and Female-Female Duets.

As per our accepted practice, we have listed male-female duets by focusing on male singer. Also, the such male singer -wise male-female duets are listed in the descending order of number of songs that we could unequivocally locate from HFGK   We have recorded duet songs for those male singers with whom we are normally conversant. Other male singers have been placed under ‘other male-female duets.

The Male Female Duets

The male female duets have been accorded almost equal respect as that accorded to male or female solo songs. Many of the male female duets have been accepted as the benchmark milestones as are some male or female solo songs have been accepted as the benchmark milestones in the Hindi Film Music.

For the sake of maintaining consistency of presentation w.r.t. the Micro View of Best Songs for XXXX @ SoY serieses in the past, I have grouped the male-female duets w.r.t. the male singer in focus. My back of the envelope notes quickly separated duets of what can be termed as more known male singers could easily be separated out from the whole population of male-female duets. However, it is the ‘other male-female duets’ that weigh quanitatively higher in numbers. In so far as previous familiairity is concerned, the number os such songs for me personally is a very small fraction of all the songs listed herein.

I have arranged the male singer-wise male-female songs in the descending order of number of songs for the number of male-female duets for the particular male singer.

Duets of Mohammad Rafi

Even as Mohammad Rafi does not have, quantitatively, so large number of duets for 1946, it should not be surprising that we have opportunity to listen to these songs for the first time because of our now established practice of Micro view listening to the songs of the vintage era years.

Gae Ja .. Bhul Ja Apne Geet Purane – Ghunghat – With Nirmala Devi -Shankar Rao Vyas – Ramesh Gupta

HFGK does not mention names of the singers.

Rukhi Sukhi Main Kha Luhgi Paas Bula Lo Mere Raja – Insaaf – with Hamida Bano – H P Das – D N Madhok

Khud Samaz Lo Ke Iltaza Kya Hai – Rangbhoomi – with Shamshad Begum – Premnath – Arzoo Lakhanavi

Ye Nayan KyuN Sharma Rahe Hai – Rasili – With Shamshad Begum – Hanuman Prasad – Gafil Haranyanvi

Watan Ki Amanat Meri Zindagi Hai – Rupa  – with Shamshad Begum – Govind Ram –

Baithe Hai Tere Dar Par Kuchh Kar Ke Uthenge – Sona Chandi – With Shamshad Begum – Tufail Faruqui – Wali Sahab

Man Ki Suni Nagariya Suhani Bani – Sona Chandi – With Amirbai Karnataki – Tufail Faruqui – Khawar JamaN

Duets of G M Durrani

Mohammad Rafi considered G M Durrani as his role model in his early career. Here, G M Durrani’s duet songs indicate why so.

Jobana Sharmae Mohe Jobana Sharmae – Kuldeep – with Mohantara Talpade – Sushant Banerjee – Nawa Naqvi

Dekho Ji Kya Sama Hai, Chaman Pe Fiza Hai – Sassi Punnu – with Shamshad Begum – Pt. Govind Ram – Ishwar Chandra Kapoor

Ik Yaad Kisi Ki Aa Rahi – Shama – with Shamshad Begum – Ghulam Haider – Ehsan Rizvi

The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : The Male Female Duets : Duets of Other Male Singers [3]

We have been micro viewing male-female duets of ‘other’ male singers for the year 1947 in  the previous parts [1] and [2].. The present, concluding , part also carries forward the very distinct characteristic of having a broader range of variety of male-female combinations and the corresponding connection of the music director, even after considering a few singer combinations having more than one duet in a film or music director like C Ramchandra appearing in more than one film in this list.

Here, too, I have had occasion to listen to these song for the first time.

The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : The Male Female Duets : Duets of Other Male Singers [1]

The duets of other male singers with all female singers for the year 1947 provide aan excellent view of the singers and the music directors active in 1947. It was while working for this post that I could get to listen to most of the duets, with a quite a few exceptions as well. As with the solos, a few repetitive hearings are not enough to fully appreciate the nuances of these songs. But the experience is certainly worth its while.

Some of the male singers, like Manna Dey and Hemant Kumar also have been included in this omnibus category, even though they have more than one or two duets, because even if combine more than one singers, the total number of duets for 1947 may not make a full-fledged post.

The total numbers of duets is large enough to qualify for the spread of these duets into three posts.

S D Batish & Zeenat Begum – Duniya Chhoote Par Chhoote Na Chhoote Teri Gali Ka Phera Re – Arsi – Lachchhiram / Shyam Sundar – Sarshaar Shailani

This is the twin version of the Raj Kapoor solo: O Duniya Ke Rahanewalo Kahan Gaya Chitchor Bolo Kahan Gaya Chitchor

Gyan Dutt, Suanada Kamath  – Barbad Kar Daala Mujhe Barbaad Kar Daala Gulabi Ne Gulabi Ne  – Diwani – Gyan Dutt – Shams Lakhanavi

The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : The Male Female Duets : Duets of Mohammad Rafi and G M Durrani

Duets of Mohammad Rafi

In terms of numbers, duets of Mohammad Rafi would not stand much chance with those of Mukesh in this year. However, it so happens that, there are more songs that are familiar to me, at least, in this case of Mohammad Rafi’s duets as compared to those of Mukesh in this year.

Over and above this, Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar have recorded their first ever duet in this year of Lata Mangeshkar’s debut as playback singerin Hindi Films.That is the only one duet she has this year.

Mohammad Rafi, Mohantara – Main Teri Tu Mera Dono Ka Sang Sang Ho Basera – Aapki Sewa Mein – Dattaa Davjekar – Mahipal

Mohammad Rafi, Khursheed – Sawan Ki Ghatao Dheere Dheere Aana – Aage Badho – Sudhir Phadake – Amar Varma

N.B.  HFGK records this song to the credit of Manna Dey and Khursheed.

Mohammad Rafi, Noor Jehan – Yahan Badla Wafa Ka Bewafai Ke Siwa Kya Hai – Jugnu – Phiroz Nizami B A –

Mohammad Rafi, Lalita Deulkar- Kisko Sunaun Hal-e-Dil…. Hamko Tumhara Hi Aasra, Tum Hamare Ho Na Ho – Saajan – C Ramchandra – Moti B A

This is twin version of Rafi solo Hamko Tumhara Hi Aasra, Tum Hamare Ho Na Ho, but the composition of the duet is so different..

Mohammad Rafi, Lalita Deulkar- –Main Hoon Jaipur Ki Banjaran, Chanchal Mera Naam – Saajan – C Ramchandra – Qamar Jalalabadi

Mohammad Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar – Lo Ho Gayi Taiyyar Zara Thaharo Ji – Shadi Se Pehle – Paigankar, Karnad – Pt. Sukhram Sharma

Mohammad Rafi, Razia Begum – Balam Harzai, Jao Ji Main Preet Kiye Pachhatai – Shikarpuri – Muhammad Safi – A Shah ‘Aziz’

Duets of G M Durrani

G M Durrani was considered to a very close competitor who Mohammad Rafi had to content with during Rafi’s initial years. Of couse that is not the reason for juxtaposing G M Durrani’s duest in this post.

G M Durrani, Amirbai Karnataki – Wafaein Hamari Na Tum Azamana – Diwani – Gyan Dutt – ?

G M Durrani, Geeta Roy – Aji Prem Ka Nata Toot Gaya Mera Preetam Mujh Se Choota – Do Bhai – S D Burman – Raja Mehandi  Ali Khan

G M Durrani, Paro Devi –Do Nazron Ka Mil Jana, Ban Gaya Ek Afsana – Heera – Husnlal Bhagatram – Qamar Jalalbadi

G M Durrani – Noor Jehan – Haath Seene Pe Rakh Do To Qarar Aye – Mirza Sahiban – Pt. Amarnath / Husnlal Bhagatram – Aziz Kashmiri

G M Durrani – Noor Jehan – Tum Aankho Se Door Ho Hui Neend Aankh Se Door – Mirza Sahiban – Pt. Amarnath / Husnlal Bhagatram – Aziz Kashmiri
