The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Male Solo Songs – Other Male Singers

Apart from the four male playback singers that we have covered till now, we can find fairly noticeable presence of other male singers like Ninu Mazumdar, Chitalkar, Manna Dey or Vidyanath Seth in the year 1948. In some cases, their work is more on the side of duets or in some case even when we list the songs from HFGK, these are not yet posted on net.

I have clubbed songs of any one singer here under the respective name. In all other cases, I have mentioned the name of the singer along with the song itself.

On the whole, in the retrospect, this list does present quite a kaleidoscopic picture.

Kare Badar Baras Barasa Kar Jao Bar Bar – Gopinath – Singer: Ninu Mazumdar – Ninu Mazumdar – Ram Murthy

The song seems to have a version in which Kaumudi Munshi joins in and lends a very different style to the song.

Manna Dey

Chal Tu Preet Nagariya, Preet Nagar Ke Koyal Kooke – Veena – Anil Biswas – Prem Dahelvi

Ham Tere Hai Ham Ko Na Thukarana – Hum Bhi Insaan Hai – Manna Dey, H P Das – G S Nepali

Koi Mujh Se Bhi Bole – Hum Bhi Insaan Hai – Manna Dey, H P Das – G S Nepali

Ghar Ghar Ke Diye Buzakar Bane Hai Dhanwan –Hum Bhi Insaan Hai – Manna Dey, H P Das – G S Nepali

Jay Shivshankar, Gaurishwar, Jay Rameshwar – Jay Hanuman – Bulo C Rani – Pt. Indra

Jab Se Dekha Hai Tumhein – Gopinath – Singer Not Known – Ninu Majumdar

Do Ghadi Beet Gayi, Taine Surat Nahi Dkhayee – Hum Bhi Insaan Hai – Parvez Kapadia – Manna Dey, D C Dutt, G S Nepali

(Technically speaking, this may have to be placed in female solos category. However, the song is performed by a male (adolescent) actor on the screen, so I have placed it in this list.]

We will now take up other Male-Female Duets Songs, for which we will group the songs around the female singer. The first stage selection of such songs from HFGK has yielded a bountiful numbers that would stand up to the numbers of duets that have been rendered by both prominent partners.

Shamshad Begum + Other Male Singers

In the first cut, selecting the songs from HFGK, I had a fairly large number of Shamshad Begum’s duets with other male singers. However, I have not been able to link up all songs with the soft YT link.
