Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music

Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music – September, 2015

Welcome to September, 2015 edition of Carnival of Blogs on Golden Era of Hindi Film Music.

We begin our recall of the anniversaries with Fearless Nadia (?)singing a romantic song 1943, apparently sung by Rajkumari and Mansoor), from Hunterwale Ki Beti , composed by Chhannalal Naik – Chanchal Dhara Nadi Kinara AND An Evening With Nadia – Karan Bali – Fearless Nadia films, produced by Wadia Movietone, were a genre unto themselves, a certain draw to many more visits to Movies at the Museum…

Another important memory is rekindled in “Guzra Hua Zamana Aata Nahin Dobara” – S. Mohinder. The interview presented herein no doubt is worth reading. But I have not been able to resist temptation of reproducing here the songs presented in the article. The songs pan S. Mohinder’s career.

Some more songs are also available @ S.MOHINDER SONGS.

Quite interestingly, Samir Dholakia also has remembered Sudhir Kapoor’s article – Kyun Chamke Bijuriya Saawan Ki posted on the birthday of S Mohinder and Asha Bhosle. This gem of a song is from film Bekhabar (1965). The article also leads us to Phool Muskuraye Kyon, Chand Jagmagaye Kyon. . . which is a duet by Mohammad Rafi and Asha Bhosle from ‘Sarfarosh’ (1964).

Asha Bhosle with reluctant Naushad and C Ramchandra: Part 1 (solos) : The two dominant composers of the era, Naushad and C Ramchandra, gave a look-up to Asha Bhosle very sparingly in the early years. From the array of songs presented in the article, we have picked up some of the songs that may be fading up from the memory –

Asha Bhosle with reluctant Naushad and C Ramchandra: Part 2 (duets) : Asha Bhosle’s duets, too, composed by them are no less memorable. Therefore, to have a complete picture of the songs that Naushad and CR composed for Asha Bhosle, we have been presented with her duets made by the two reluctant Masters.

Happy 89th Birthday, Madam Noor Jehan! 21st September was Noor Jehan’s 89th birthday. Here is the list of previous posts: 83rd Birthday (2009) || 84th Birthday (2010) || 85th Birthday (2011) || September 2012 – Noor Jehan and Lata, with a clip of one fine song from each. || 87th Birthday (2013) || 88th Birthday (2014) .

India’s loss, Pakistan’s gain: The journey of singing great Noor Jehan after 1947Karan Bali – It took Noor Jehan until 1951 to appear in a movie in Pakistan. We have picked those songs from the article that represent her (second) acting career.

Shailendra was the proverbial moth who got burned too quickly – The lyricist died 49 years ago, leaving behind a legacy of exquisite songs that make you cry and think.- Akshay Manwani [Akshay Manwani is the author of Sahir Ludhianvi: The People’s Poet (HarperCollins India 2013)]– Shailendra would have been 92 on August 30. In Ganesh Anantharaman’s National Award-winning book Bollywood Melodies: A History of the Hindi Film Song, eminent lyricist and filmmaker Gulzar said about Shailendra: “In my view he was the lyricist, who understood films as a medium distinct from poetry and theatre perfectly, and adapted to it beautifully. For his ability to know the medium, understand the situation, get into the characters, and writing in a language suiting the character, he was without peer… I’d go as far as to say that among all the lyricists of Hindi cinema, only Shailendra became a part of the film medium, expertly and successfully. All others remained poets who wrote for films.”

Dolls and puppets, child-like(?) dances, sprightly singing by Lata, Shankar Jaikishan… A series of songs that come to mind because of a number of associations, all described in the title here… The last is quite different from the first, but it’s interesting how the songs actually progress from the first to the last – while being in chronological order, too!

We now move over to other posts from our regular blogs.

Ten of My Favorite Background Songs is an interesting compilation of a very popular genre of background songs. Excluded here are the songs that appear in the credit titles of the film. The readers have further enriched the collection.

R.D. Burman – The Man, The Music is a follow up of the review of reading Gaata Rahe Mera Dil .

Basant (1960) : While not one of OPN’s best and popular score, it has some very fine tunes. And we would certainly enjoy – Chori Chori ik ishaara ho gaya hai, Naino mein suraj ki kiranein, Raaste mein ik haseen.

Bells and Whistles – “Bells and Whistles” is a popular English idiom. It means extra or fancy add-ons. However, when you hear bells or whistles in some Hindi film songs, they seem very much an integral part of the song and not something fancy or extra.  There are literally hundreds of songs that feature bells and whistles. We have here a playlist of 15 lively and popular songs with bells and whistles. These songs have been picked from movies from the mid 1960s to the mid 2000s.

From back-up to the front row: Reintroducing Bollywood dancer Edwina LyonsNandini Ramnath – Surjit Singh’s book ‘Edwina An Unsung Dancer of the Bollywood Era‘ focuses attention on a minor Anglo-Indian dancer who shimmied across the screen between the 1950s and the ’70s.

Before we pay visit to MUSINGS, we have Nigahen Milane Ko Ji Chahta Hai – The combination of Roshan’s admirable music, Sahir Ludhianvi’s beautiful words, Asha’s flawless rendition, Nutan’s lovely expressive face and the Qawwali style makes this quite irresistible. Here is the song:

rAz kI bAt hai mehfil mE.n kahE.n yA na kahE.n
bas gayA hai kOI is dil mE.n kahE.n yA na kahE.n

nigAhE.n milAnE kO jI chAhtA hai
dil-O-jA.n luTAnE kO jI chAhtA hai

While we went visiting other sections of the blog, MUSINGS has added the film reviews – Laat Saheb (1967), Grahan (1972), Anjaam (1978) and Kasturi (1978).

Now we move over songs remembered by our friends in this month –

Bhagvan Thavrani

[Asides: Here is one of a very rich list of songs on Raag Bhimpalasi].

  • Kanha Bole Na – Sangat(1976) – Manna Dey, Lata – Salil Choudhary – Janisar Akhtar

Samir Dholakia has referred songs wherein the actor has also rendered the song or the singer has acted in the film. This should pertain the period after vintage era, when playback singing by specialist singers had become the rule. This can be a very long list, which we will take up separately in due course:

Sumant (Dadu) Vashi form Chicago (U S A) had sent in these songs

We have been posting a series of posts on the widely discussed and participated exercise of annual review of songs of a particular year – Best songs of 1950: And the winners are?.

We had then continued to explore Male Solo Songs of Mukesh, Talat Mahamood, Mohammad Rafi, G M Durrani and Chitalkar, Manna Dey, Arun Kumar, Manmohan Krishna and Others as well as Songs by several other playback singers for Raj Kapoor in July 2015. For August-, 2015, we covered Male Female Duets of Mukesh, Mohammad Rafi, Talat Mahmood, G M Durrani, and those of Chitalkar and other Male Singers.

The Micro View of The Best Songs of 1950 @ Songs of Yore – Summing Up – II: Duet Songs and The Best Music Director

We now conclude our micro-view of songs of a particular year – Best songs of 1950: And the winners are?. We have covered up documentation of the further micro-review of the songs C Ramchandra, Husnlal Bhagatram and Ghulam Mohammad, Anil Biswas and other Music directors’ Lata Mangeshakar’s songs, as well as those of Suraiya and Shamshad Begum in June 2015 and Rajkumari, Geeta Roy and Other female Singers in July 2015.. We had then continued to explore Male Solo Songs of Mukesh, Talat Mahamood, Mohammad Rafi, G M Durrani and Chitalkar, Manna Dey, Arun Kumar, Manmohan Krishna and Others too in July 2015. During August 2015, we had Other playback singers for Raj Kapoor and Male-Female duets of Mukesh, Mohammad Rafi, Talat Mahmood, G M Durani and Those of Chitalkar and Other Male Singers for our micro-review. In the concluding month of September, we completed micro-review of Triads / Triads+ too.

Having covered all the facets – Female Solos, Male Solos, Male-Female / Male-Male/Female-Female Duets and Triads /Triads + – in individual details from micro-view of ‘Best songs of 1950: And the winners are?, I presented MY choice of the TOP 10 songs in Female Solos as well those in Male Solos in the previous episode.

Summing Up – Duets

The last category in the songs section was Duets. We had extensively covered the most happening category of Male-Female Duet Songs as well relatively very selectively used category of Female-Female Duets and Male-Male Duets.

In the Male-Female Duets we had listened to 52 songs in all. These can be viewed wither from Male-Female duets angle or from Female-Male Duets angle. From the Male-Female angle, the duets of Mohammad Rafi (21), Mukesh (13), Talat Mahmood (7) and G M Durrani (6) total 37 songs. In the mirror, from Female-Male duets angle, this works out to 13 duets of Shamshad Begum, 11 of Lata Mangeshkar, 9 Geeta Roy, 5 of Suraiya and 3 each of Raj Kumari and Zohrabai Ambalewali – 44.

Here are My Favorite Male-Female Duets, in no particular order.:

Mukesh + Lata MangeshkarZamaane ka dastoor hai yeh puranaLajwaab – Prem Dhawan- Anil Biswas

Mukesh + Geeta RoyKhayalon Men Kisi Ke Is Tarah Aaya Nahin KarteBaware Nayan – Kedar Sharma – Roshan

Mukesh + Raj KumariMujhe Sach Sach BataBaware Nayan – Kedar Sharma – Roshan

Mohammad Rafi + Lata MangeshkarMahi O dupata mora de deMeena Bazaar – Qamar Jalalabadi – Music Husnlal-Bhaatram

Mohammad Rafi + Suraiya – Dil Ko Hae Dil Ko ..Teri Tasveer Se Bahalae Hue Hain – Dastaan – Shakeel Badayuni – Naushad

Talat Mahmood + Lata MangeshkarYaad aanewale phir yaad aa rahe hainAnmol Ratan – DN Madhok- Vinod

Talat Mahmood + Shamshad Begum – Milte hi aankhen dil hua deewana kisi kaBabul – Shakeel Badayuni – Naushad

G M Durrani + Pramodini Desai – Chiraiya Udi Jaye Re ….. Dodo Dodo BabuDilruba – – Gyan Dutt

Madan Mohan + Shmamshad BegumHumse na dil ko lagana musafirAankhen – Bharat Vyas – Madan Mohan

And the icing on the cake is:

Hemant Kumar and Roma Devi (?) –Milte hi ankhen dil hua – cover version

Male-male duets were good to listen to after these many years. But the real evergreen duets do belong to Female – Female duets category..

Here are my favorites:

Shamshad Begum + Lata MangeshkarKisi ke dil mein rahna thaBabul – Shakeel Badayuni – Naushad

Geeta Roy + SuraiyaPreet ka nata jodnewaleAfsar – Narendra Sharma – S D Burman

Lata Mangeshkar and Amirbai KarnatakiGore gore O baanke choreSamadhi – Rajendra Krishna – C Ramchandra

Lata Mangeshkar and Sarswati RaneJab dil ko sataye gham tu chhed sakhi sargamSargam – PL Santoshi – C Ramchandra

Lata Mangeshkar and Saraswati RaneTinak tin tani do din ki zindaganiSargam – PL Santoshi – C Ramchandra

1950 would certainly go as a very special year in the history of HFM in so far as the specific variety of Triads and Triads + goes. There would be very few, if any, years which may have so varied a crop of triads and triads + songs.

Here are My Favorite Triads and Triads

Mohammad Rafi + Shamshad Begum + Talat Mahmood + Chorus – Nadiya mein utha hai shorBabul – Shakeel Badayuni – Naushad –

Mukesh + S D Batish, Shamshad Begum + ChorusJaao Sidharo He Raadha Ke ShyamArzoo – Jan Nissar Akhtar – Anil Biswas

Best Music Director

The year 1950 has presented a very interesting picture in so far as music directors are concerned.

There are MANY music directors at the very Bottom of the Pyramid who have hardly made any impact by their creations. Then a level above, are A FEW music directors, like Husnlal Bhagatram, Hansraj Behl, Ghulam Mohammad, Vasant Desai, Vinod, Madan Mohan, Snehal Bhatkar, who have had from one to several films, a song here or a song there that did attract fair amount of public and critic attention.

A rung above them are music directors like Roshan (Bawre Nain), S D Burman (Afsar), Anil Biswas (Arzoo, Beqasoor) who did not have many films in the year but did have at least one film that not only attained Great Success in those days, but went on to become ever-green as well.

At the top are C Ramchandra (Nirala, Samadhi, Sangeeta, Saragam, Sangram),  Naushad (Dastan, Babul) and Bulo C Rani (Jogan). Each of their films was a great musical success, several of the songs form each film went on to write their own records of commercial success as well as wen on to become evergreens as well.

So one may choose, as per own individual preference, either Baware Nain or Afsana or Dastan or Babul or Arzoo as the Film that had Best Music, but the C Ramachandra is MY CHOICE as the Best Music Director for the year. He has successfully crafted the music, as much for the class as that for the mass, in all the films, even when the films were primarily meant for the mass.

The Micro View of The Best Songs of 1950 @ Songs of Yore – Summing Up – I : Female and Male Solo Songs

We now conclude our micro-view of songs of a particular year – Best songs of 1950: And the winners are?. We have covered up documentation of the further micro-review of the songs C Ramchandra, Husnlal Bhagatram and Ghulam Mohammad, Anil Biswas and other Music directors’ Lata Mangeshakar’s songs, as well as those of Suraiya and Shamshad Begum in June 2015 and Rajkumari, Geeta Roy and Other female Singers in July 2015.. We had then continued to explore Male Solo Songs of Mukesh, Talat Mahamood, Mohammad Rafi, G M Durrani and Chitalkar, Manna Dey, Arun Kumar, Manmohan Krishna and Others too in July 2015. During August 2015, we had Other playback singers for Raj Kapoor and Male-Female duets of Mukesh, Mohammad Rafi, Talat Mahmood, G M Durani and Those of Chitalkar and Other Male Singers for our micro-review. In the concluding month of September, we completed micro-review of Triads / Triads+ too.

It is time to sum up the series, by way of MY choice of the TOP 10 songs in each category.

My Favorite Female Solos for the Year 1950

In so far as Female playback singers are concerned, songs by Lata Mangeshkar almost equal other playback singers put together, within this universe of 152 “memorable songs”. So, in terms of numbers, one may conclude that Lata’s single-handed share of around 50% has established he dominance in the field. I would take this conclusion with a pinch of salt. Some of the music directors who were to take her on completely in the later years, Madan Mohan, Roshan, S D Burman, Naushad have none to a few songs with Lata in this year. In fact only C Ramchandra, Husnlal Bhagatram and Ghulam Mohammad seem to have accepted her in totality. Anil Bisaws, too, continues to repose his faith in her. So her acceptance is not as universal as it happened during the later years.

Also, apart from the numbers, when one looks at the list of memorable songs, there are many songs by other female singers which stand out on popularity, then and in later years, as well as the merits of the composition in comparison to the songs that stand out from Lata’s stable.

Asha Bhosle’s presence is seen during the year, but there does not appear to be any song that can measure up to Memorable category.

Here is the list, in no particular order:

1. Mehfil Mein Jal Uthi Shama – Nirala – C Ramchandra – Lata Mangeshkar

2. Koi Kisi Ka Deewana Na Bane – Sargam – C Ramchandra – Lata Mangeshkar

3. Kahan Tak Hum Uthaye Gam – Arzoo – Anil Biswas – Lata Mangeshkar

4. Lagan More Man Ki – Babul – Naushad – Lata Mangeshkar

5. Man Mor Hua Matwala – Afsar – S D Burman – Suraiya

6. Nain Deewane Ik Nahin Mane – Afsar – S D Burman – Suraiya

7. Dhadke mera dil mujhko jawani Ram qasam na bhaaye – Babul – Naushad – Shamshad Begum

8. Sun Bairi Balam Kuchch Bol Ab Kya Hoga – Bawre Nain – Roshan – Raj Kumari

9. Ari Main To Prem Deewani – Jogan – Bulo C Rani – Geeta Roy

10. Mori Attariya Pe Kaga Bole – Aankhen – Madan Mohan – Meena Kapoor

As a matter of fact, even as Lata Mangeshkar corners a fairly significant score in this list, I still would not pick up any one of the songs from these as The Best Female Solo Song of 1950 or any singer as the Best Female Playback Singer of 1950 !! .

In my view, the tie truly represents the real scenario in so far as 1950 is concerned.

And now, My Favorite Male Solos for the Year 1950, (in no particular order) :

Mukesh – Preet laga ke maine ye phal paya – Aankhen – Raja Menhadi Ali Khan – Madan Mohan

Mukesh – Teri duniya mein dil lagta nahi – Bawre Nain – Kedar Sharma – Roshan

Mukesh – Mohabbat bhi jhoothi zamana bhi jhootha – Hamari Beti – Pt Faani – Snehal Bhatkar

Talat Mahmood – Ae dil mujhe aisi jagah le chal – Arzoo – Majrooh Sultanpuri – Anil Biswas

Talat Mahmood – Mera jeewan saathi bichhad gaya – Babul – Shakeel Badayuni – Naushad

Mohammad Rafi –Akele mein wo ghabraate to honge – Biwi – Wali Saheb – Sharmaji (Khayyam)

Chitalkar – Kadam Kadam Badhaye Ja, Khushi Ke Geet Gaye Jaa – Samadhi – Rajendra Krishna – C Ramchandra

Manna Dey – Upar gagan vishal –Mashal – Pradeep – SD Burman and Manna Dey

Krishna Dayal – Aa ja nigahon mein aa ja – Dahej – Shams Lakhanvi – Vasant Desai

Anil Biswas – Humein maar chala ye khayal ye gham – Arzoo – Majrooh Sultanpuri – Anil Biswas

G M Durrani – Ye Duniya Hai Bewafai Ki , Wafa Ka Raz Kya Jaane – Madhubala – Rajendra Krishna – Lachchiram

And the icing on the cake is this Non-Film Song, As per YT, created in 1950

Talat Mahamood – Mera Pyar Mujhe Lauta Do – Sajjan – V Balsara

SoY has presented its all-inclusive conclusive piece on Male Solos @ Best songs of 1950: Wrap Up 1 and “Other” Female Solos @ Best songs of 1950: Wrap Up 2

The Micro View of The Best Songs of 1950 @ Songs of Yore – Male Female Duets : Mukesh with other female singers

The third major category, in our journey of the review of Best songs of 1950: And the winners are?’ is Duets. A Duet would mean a song which has two singers – which can be a male and female singer or a male and male or a female and a female singer. Our Hindi Films have all these varieties. Moreover, two male and a female or one male and two female (these generally have chorus in accompaniment, too) Triads, and some times even quadrats, also can seen.
