Songs of 1945 @ SoY :: Female Solo Songs – Mohantara Talpade | Rajkumari | Hamida Bano

Solo Songs of Mohantara Talpade

Mohantara Talpade was a well-recognised playback voice in mid’40s.  It seems 1945 was not a very productive year for her.

Ghat Ghat Ki Tum Janate…Bhool Na Jana Hey Girdhari – Dhanna Bhagat– Khemchand Prakash – Pt. Indra

Main Janam Janam Ki Dukhiyari — Dhanna Bhagat– Khemchand Prakash – Khavar JamaN

Solo Songs of Rajkumari

Rajkumari has a fairly respectable solo songs this year, but more than two thirds of the songs listed in HFGK, I have not been able to fin the digital link.

O Peenwale Pee Le, Pee Le, Peene Ke Din Aaye – Din Raat – Dada Chandekar – Santosh Nadim

Meri Aankho Ke Aansu AankhoN Hi Mein So Jao – Ghar – Alla Rakha – Roopbani

Unhein Yaad Aaye….Guzara Jamana – Naseeb – Pt. Govind Ram – Ishwar Chandra Kapoor

Meri Pukar Sun Le O Jag Ke Rakhwale – Ratnavali – Pt. Govind Ram – Ishwar Chandra Kapoor

So Ja Mere Pyare Mere Jivan Ke Sahare – Yateem – Khursheed Anwar – Zia Sarhadi

Solo Songs of Hamida Bano

Hamida Bano also does not seem to have had a very productive year.

Aanewale Jab Aayenge Jeevan Ki Shaam Ho Jayegi – Dharma- Sajjad Hussain –

We do not find this song listed in HFGK.

Bhali Nibhayi Preet Re Pardesi, Maine Jhoothe Gaae Geet Re Pardesi – Moorti – Bulo C Rani – Pt. Indra

Saawan Aaya Saajan Nahi Aaya Re Daiya-Daiya – Moorti – Bulo C Rani – Pt. Indra

Dil Tu Hi Bata De, Yeh Pyar Hai Kya – Sharabati Aankhen – Firoz Nizami B A- Tanvir Naqvi

The song also has a sad version for which I have not been able to locate digital version on net.

Hemant Kumar’s Hindi Song Compositions: Female songs – ‘Other’ Singers

We have covered Hemant Kumar’s Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Asha Bhosle’s songs earlier.

We now move over to the ‘Long Tail’ of the skewed distribution of Hemant Kumar’s female songs. Hemant Kumar has used the ‘other’ known Hindi female playback singers more as an exception only. Raj Kumari had one dance number in Anand Math (1952). Shamshad Begum has two solos and two FF duets, Sudha Malhotra has one solo, one FF duet and one (an iconic) MF duet – that we will take up discussion separately- and Suman Kalyanpur has two FF duets, and Usha Mangeshkar has one solo and two FF duets. We also have a very rare Mubarak Begum, Sulochana Kadam FF duet and a song by a classic trained singer Lakshmi Shankar, as well

Rajkumari

Dil Ka Paimana Hai, Ulfat Ka Hath Hai – Anand Math (1952) – Lyrics: Hasrat Jaipuri

Sheila Ramani is so gracious as lead dancer in this court dance song.

Laksmi Shankar

Kaisi Lagi Karjeawa Mein Katar – Ferry (1954) – Lyrics: Rajinder Krishna

Hemant Kumar has used a classic trained singer for Mujra Song. From the initial dialogue in the clip, it seems that the song is seen by the daughter (Geeta Bali) as her mother has to perform for such mehfils

The song is in two parts. The second part has Geeta Bali singing the song on the screen. The feeling of pathos is very clearly felt in the way song is rendered in this part. The context of this change would be clear only when one has seen the film.

Usha Mangeshkar

Kaisi Lagi…..Jiya Jaye To Jiya Jaye – Ek Hi Rasta (1956) – with Asha Bhosle – Lyrics: Majrooh Sultanpuri

The song is a duet dance song, so typically planned to celebrate special occasions.

Pyasi Hai Mamata Meri Aaja Dheere Dheere Aa – Maa Beta (1962) – Lyrics: Prem Dhawan

Hemant Kumar has so melodiously weaved lathos of mother being away from her offspring in this lullaby.

Shamshad Begum

Hemant Kumar has used Shamshad Begum for four songs, of which a duet, with Ravi, from ‘Daku Ki Ladki” (1954) do not seem to be traceable on the internet

Meri Itni Araj Hai Huzur Se, Pyar Karna Magar Door Door Se – Hamara Watan (1956) – Lyrics: S H Bihari

We have here a classic mujra song.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zik26guG66o

Hum Kisi Se Na Kahenge Chup Chup Se Rahenge– Yahudi Ki Ladki (1957) – with Geeta Dutt – Lyrics: S H Bihari

The song is set to what has now become familiar Arabic dance tunes (thanks to n-number of films based on stories from that milieu) to the listeners of Hindi film songs. Both the singers have been accorded freedom to sing in their natural range.

Pyar Jata Ke Lalchaye Mora Balama –- Hum Bhi Insaan Hai (1959) – Lyrics: Shailendra

This seems to a mujra-styled dance song. Shamshad Begum is her at vintage best, even in 1959.

Sudha Malhotra

Mujhe Tarke Taaluk Samjaya Jaata Hai – Sahara (1958) – Lyrics: Bharat Vyas

Hemant Kumar has so easily been able to present a signature mujra song – with prominent tabla thaaps (beats),  beginning of the stanza without the support of any instruments and of course the use of most ubiquitous instrument of a mujra music – the sarangi.

Suman Kalyanpur

Suman Kalyanpur is present in only two FF duets. Both the duets are perfectly composed FF duets, but have differently blended the inherent vocal qualities of different singers in the respective songs.

Kabhi Aaj Kabhi Kal, Kabhi Paraso – Chand (1959) – with Lata Mangeshkar – Lyrics: Shailendra

The song appears to be public dance stage show. As such, both the performers are expected to move and sing in perfect synchronisation. Hemant Kumar has achieved this synchronization in the vocal part of the songs by perfectly blending almost similar sounding voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Suman Kalyanpur.

Phulwa Band Maheke Dekho Dali Dali – Ham Bhi Insaan Hai (1959) – with Geeta Dutt – Lyrics: Shailendra

Shailendra has captured the two points of views of friends in the song, who seem to be visiting the flower garden – both see different hues in the same settings in which both are present together. Hemant Kumar has enlivened this effect by using two naturally different voices – those of Geeta Dutt and Suman Kalyanpur.

Aside Trivia:

The song seems to have been inspired from Meghla Bhanga Rod Utheche (The Sun Rises in the Clouded Sky) – Tar Aar Par Nei. – Pratima Badopadyay – composed by Nachiketa Ghish, lyrics: Pulak Banerjee

Mubarak Begum, Sulochana Kadam

Bharat Ke Lok Geet (Fashion, 1959) is collection of folk songs from different regions.

The song can be heard by clicking on this link

https://gaana.com/song/bharat-ke-lok-geet

Other than these, he has also chosen to experiment with Bengali female playback singers, like Ratna Gupta, Pratima Banerjee, Aarti Mukherjee, his wife Bela Mukherjee and his daughter Ranu Mukhrtjee, Bula Gupta etc.

We will take up Hemant Kumar’s songs of ‘Other’ (Bengali Female Singers in the next episode.

The Micro View of Best Songs of 1946 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Mohantara Talpade, Rajkumari

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

The Micro View of Best Songs of 1947 : Female Solo Songs – Rajkumari

We now take up the solo songs of female singers whose main body of work falls into the vintage era.

Among the vintage era female singers Rajkumari stands out because of a very distinct melody in her that era’s signature metallic-heavy-bass-oriented-female voices.

Obviously, none of the song I had heard earlier. So I have no means to categorise these songs into the ‘popular’ tag. However, I find many songs very appealing only after a couple of hearings during this project.

Aye Chand Tu Ab Bata De Mera Chand Kahan Hai – Bhakta Ke Bhagwan  – Chhanalal Thakur – Kavi Mansavi Prantijwala

Sajani Chhoti Si Hai Baat Dekho Bhul Na Jana – Bhakta Ke Bhagwan – Chhanalal Thakur – Kavi Mansavi Prantijwala

Dekho Ji Aayee Suhani Raat ….Ghataen Chhai Hai Ghanghor – Doosri Shaadi – Govind Ram – Ishwar Chandra Kapoor

More Rote Nain Ro Ro Marenge Tum To Chale Ho – Gaon – Khemchand Prakash – D N Madhok

Shokh Nazaron Ke Machalane Ka Zamana Aa Gaya – Hatimtai – A Kumar

Kal Jamuna Tat Par Aaoge Murzai Kali Hamare Man Ki – Neel Kamal – B Vasudev- Kedar Sharma

Bhool Jate Hai Bhool Jaya Karen Azamate Hai Azamaya Karein – Neel Kamal – B Vasudev- Kedar Sharma

Saiyan Ne Ungli Marodi Re, Rama Qasam Sharma Gayi Main  – Parwana – Khursheed Anwar – D N Madhok

Zalim Tera Khayal Satae To Kya Karun – Sajani – L Amar / Afzal Lahauri – Razi Banarasi

The songs for which I could not locate the digital link:

  • Bhakt Ke Bhagwan Tera Hi Naam Smaran Tera Hi Gun Gaan – Bhakta Ke Bhagwan  – Chhanalal Thakur – Kavi Mansavi Prantijwala
  • Aaya Mausam Naya Rut Badalane Lagi – Chalate Chalate – Khemchand Prakash – Lal Chand “Bismil’ Peshawari
  • Tumane Jaga Di Meri Jawani Mujhko Suna Ke Prem Kahani – Diwani – Gyan Dutt – Shams Azimabadi
  • Kahe Do Kaali Ghatayen Daraye Na – Gaon – Khemchand Prakash – D N Madhok

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – The Duets – Female Female Duets

When I sort-listed female-female duets for 1948 from HFGK, the number worked out to be reasonably large. However, I could not find digital soft version on the net for almost half of them. Therefore, the songs that I could find YT link can be taken as fairly well-known to those who have good knowledge and interest of vintage era songs. From the perspective of my limited knowledge and interest of the songs of that era, I also found listening to these songs quite interesting.

Shamshad Begum + Geeta RoyOh Gori Tera Banka Chhaiya Jeet Ke Aaya Jang – Actress – Shyam Sundar – Raja Mahendi Ali Khan

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Rajkumari

We now take up the solo songs of female singers whose main body of work falls into the vintage era.

Raajkumari is one of those singers who has left quite profound impact during the transition period from vintage to golden era.  In terms of numbers, her presence in 1948 appears not to be very comparable to the female singers we have covered so far, however that does not take away the charm of her voice.

Woh Puchchate Rahe Ham Haal-e-Dil Suna Na Sake – Aap Beeti – Haribhai – G S Nepali

Mope Daro Na Tirchchi Nazariya, More Anagana Aao Pardesiya – Hua Savera – Gyan Dutt – Bhagwati Prasad Bajpeyi

The Micro View of the Best Songs of 1949 @ SoY – Female Female Duets – Other Female-Female Duet Songs

Substantive share of Lata Mangeshkar+ songs in the Female Female duets category for the year 1949 also can be taken as one more indicator of her emergence as THE playback singer. Of course, she does share space with all other major (so-called) competing players in this category, which seems to have weighed in her favor.

So let us listen to the female female duets of singers other than Lata Mangeshkar.

Shamshad Begum +

The Micro View of the Best Songs of 1949 @ SoY – Male Female Duets – Other Male-Female Duet Songs

I had been able to enlist quite a representative songs from HFGK, covering a wide range of other well-known vintage female playback singers in duet with some equally known male playback singers to quite uncommon female playback singers with equally unknown male playback singers. A few songs had the music directors in the role of playback singers as well. However, in the ultimate analysis, I have been able to locate corresponding YT link for a very few of these songs, in which, at least, have one song lyricist also doubling up as playback singer too.

Ameerbai Karnataki +
