The Micro View of The Best Songs of 1950 @ Songs of Yore – Female Solo Songs– Other Singers – Rajkumari, Geeta Roy and Others

We continue our take with songs by Other Leading Female Playback Singers during our micro-revisit of the  Best songs of 1950: And the winners are?. In the previous posts, we listened to memorable songs of 1950 from two of the prominent singers – Suraiya and Shamshad Begum. In this post, we will take up some of the memorable songs of other front ranking female playback singer of that era – Raj Kumari and Geeta Dutt. We will also take up three songs that remain isolated cases, but merit no less attention and accolades, in the List of Memorable Songs.

Raj Kumari

Qualitatively, only Baware Nain would have sufficed for Raj Kumari to hold her ground in the competitive era of Hindi Film Music. Her overall share in the year was, in any case, not insignificant.

1. Sun bairi balam kuchh bol – Bawre NainKedar Sharma – Roshan . This clip also has Raj Kumari singing the song live many many years after, as comfortably and as much in élan as she did originally !

2. Ghir ghir ke aasman par chhane lagi gataayenBawre Nain – Kedar Sharma – Roshan

3. Kyun mere dil mein dard jagaya jawaab doBawre Nain – Kedar Sharma – Roshan

4. Mere roothe huye balmaaBawre Nain – Kedar Sharma – Roshan

5. Chale jaiho bedarda main roye marungiBequasoor –  Anil Biswas a classic mujra ! Raaj Kumari is simply as much comfortable in this type of song as well !

Geeta Roy

Jogan simply overshadowed Geeta Dutt’s other songs in the year, which are also fairly respectable , both in numbers and on quality.

1. Ghunghat ke pat khol reJogan – Meerabai – Bulo C Rani

2. Main to Giridhar ke ghar jaaunJogan – Meerabai – Bulo C Rani

3. Main to prem diwani mera prem na jaane koi – Part 1 & 2 Jogan – Meerabai – Bulo C Rani

4. Jogi mat jaJogan – Meerabai – Bulo C Rani

5. Pyaare darshan deejo aajJogan – Meerabai – Bulo C Rani

6. Daaro re rang daaro re phaagun ke din aaye reJogan – Pt Indra – Bulo C Rani

7. Kaisi murali bajayi Shyam neNishana – Naqshab – Khursheed Anwar

8. Ab Bhool Ja Unko Yaad Na KarNishanaNaqshab – Khursheed Anwar

9. Humein apne dil se juda kar rahe ho – Jalte DeepNaazim Panipati – TK Das

Some other Memorable Female Songs

Lakhon mein ek hamaare sainyaNirmala DeviAnmol Ratan – D N Madhok – Vinod

Mori Attariya Pe Kaga Bole – Meena Kapoor AankhenMadan Mohan

Mila gaye nainSudha MalhotraAarzoo – Majrooh Sultanpuri – Anil Biswas

Biraha Ki Rat Mose Kaati Nahi JatAsha BhosleBeewee – Nazim Panipati – Aziz Hindi

And of course , a bonus in the form of Nutan’s Tujhe Kaisa Dulha Bhaaye Ri Baanki DulhaniyaHamari Beti – Snehal Bhatkar, which in no way gives a clue to her solos and duet with Hemant Kumar which blazed a comet like trail in Chhabeeli ten years later.
