The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Geeta Roy [2]

We continue the micro-view of Solo Songs of Geeta Roy in the second leg of Solo Songs of Female Playbacksingers for 1948. I had not been to classify any song in the Part 1 of Solo Songs of Geeta Roy as “Popular Song’. Almost the same pattern seems to emerge in this part as well, with one exception.

These songs belong to film Gunsundari, which was simultaneously made in Gujarti too. And the equivalent Gujari songs of the ones that have been presented here is the cause for that exception. I had EP record of these Gujarati songs purchased in 70s, and then when the age of internet dawned, I had located their Hindi Versions.

Nandiya Maare Boli Ke Baan, Balam Main Tumse Na Bolun – Gunsundari – Avinash Vyas – Pt. Indra

Its Gujarati version – Aaj Mari Nandiya Mahenu Maaryun

Bhabhi O Bhabhi Badalo Thoda Thoda Rang

Its Gujarati version: Have Thoda Thoda Tame Thoda Thoda Thao Varnagi O Bhabhi Tame Thoda thoda Thao Varnagi

Khoye Hue Ko Dhoondhe Prabhu– Gunsundari – Bulo C Rani –Pt. Indra

And its Gujarti version – Khovaya Ne Kholawa Prabhu–  which was composed and written by Avinash Vyas

The two versions of the third song have been comopsed by two different composers as against the same composer in the case of the first two songs. That may perhaps totally different approach to the song  compostion of the two versions of the third song.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Female Solo Songs – Geeta Roy [1]

Personally for me, the songs that I heard here are the ones that I had heard for the first time. This simply means that most of songs that I had heard were of Geeta Dutt, and not those of Geeta Roy. And I always believed I have had many Geeta Roy/Dutt songs!

The number of Geeta Roy’s solo songs for 1948 too add up to our hypothesis that the year is an open-field for transition-vintage era singers,  as well as THE golden year singer – Lata Mangeshkar. The numbers also merit spanning our micro-analysis over two posts.

The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – Summing Up: MY Top Male Solo Songs

It has taken me some time to present this summing up as the mandatory step of the micro-view of the songs of 1948, the base being ‘Best songs of 1948: And the winners are? ‘ . Outwardly I would justify the procrastination on some other (so-called) pressing engagements. However, from the inner most recesses of my heart I know that my choices have already been made even before I ventured into the full scale micro-view of the Male Solo Songs.

I did listen to the songs of G M Durrani, Surendra and ‘other’ male singers a few times. However, the truth remains that I could not connect with those songs. And that is MY limitation – having been brought up listening to mostly the post-’50 songs on the radio in my formative years.

With that bias accepted, here is MY choice of the Male solo Songs for 1948:

Of these, the one I like the most is Bahe Na Kabhi Nain Se Neer.

We take up the next stage of Female Songs of 1948 from  the next episode – with Solo  Songs of Suraiya.

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.]

Koi Sham Rang Gori – Veena – Singer: Chitalkar – C Ramchandra –  Narendra Sharma

Sansar Ke Adhaar Dayaa Hampe – Anjangarh –Singer: Pankaj Mallik– R C Boral –

Tu Dar Na Jara Bhi – Anjangarh –Singer: Pankaj Mallik– R C Boral –Pt. Bhushan
