  • Ae Dil Ab KahiN Le Jaa_MM_30May20 Song: Aye Dil Ab KahiN Na Jaa; Film: Bluff Master (1963) Lyricist: Rajinder Krishan MD: Kalyan ji – Anand ji Original Singer: Hemant Kumar https://vimeo.com/424518417 Hemant Kumar was a marvelous maestro who created great music for Indian Cinema and also left his mark with several songs that he sang himself. I have chosen one of his rare songs filmed on Shammi Kapoor in Film Bluff Master. I must have been stuck in my song selections as last month I picked a Manna Dey song on Shammi ji and this month my song is presented with Shammi ji on the screen with Hemant Kumar singing for him. My humble tribute is presented for Hemant Da, which I hope my music loving friends will enjoy. NOTE: Use of a good set of headphones may enhance your listening experience with this song.

  • Dil Tujhe Diyaa Thaa_MM_11June20 https://youtu.be/WTNLQJHdfPc Song: Dil Tujhe Diyaa Thaa Rakh ne Ko Film: Malhar (1951) Lyricist: Kaifi Irfani MD: Roshan (Roshan Lal Nagrath) Original Singer: Mukesh Tribute By: Madhukar Mehta This song had been circulating in my head for several days, so I started exploring and realized Roshan also was a genius who gave us many memorable numbers. I have decided to celebrate Roshan’s work with three songs, and I stare with 1st song from Malhar an old movie released in 1951. This film has yet another significance, Mukesh produced this as his 1st film under the banner of Darling Films, his second film was “Anurag” which was released in 1956. Malhar songs were made in early 50’s with not as much advanced orchestration and / or technology but were very melodious, led by the remarkable “Bade Armaanon Se Rakha Hai Sanam Teri Qasam, Pyaar Ki Duniyaa Mein Yeh Pehlaa Qadam” is a gem. Roshan was undoubtedly helped by the lyricists, debutant Indeevar and Kaif-Irfani who penned sheer poetry, including “Dil Tujhe diya tha Rakhne ko, Tune Dil ko Jala ke Rakh Kiya” and “Tara Toote Duniya Dekhe”. Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh, needless to mention, made them immortal in their voice. Music score was composed by Roshan, grandfather of Hrithik Roshan, who had made his debut just a year earlier, in 1950. Roshan Lal Nagrath (14 July 1917 – 16 November 1967), better known by his first name Roshan, was an Indian esraj (string instrument also known as Dilrubaa) player and music director. He was the father of the actor and film director Rakesh Roshan and music director Rajesh Roshan and paternal grandfather of Hrithik Roshan. Roshan was born in Gujranwala, Punjab, British India which part of Punjab in Pakistan now. In 1948, Roshan came to Mumbai to find work as a Hindi film music director and became assistant of music composer Khawaja Khurshid Anwar in film “Singaar” (1949). He somewhat struggled until he met the then famous producer-director Kidar Sharma, who gave him the job of composing for his film “Neki aur Badi” (1949). While it was a flop, Kidar Sharma gave him another chance in his next film. Roshan emerged as a player on the Hindi film music scene with “Baawre Nain” (1950) which became a big musical hit.

  • Ye Meraa Diwaanaapan Hai_032216_Final Song # 3: Ye Meraa Deewaanaapan Hai Film: Yahudi (1958) Lyricist: Shailendra MD: Shankar / Jaikishan Original Singer: Mukesh Tribute By: Madhukar Mehta Finally, for my 3rd song for this theme, I have chosen yet another iconic song penned by Shailendra for the lips of Dilip Kumar. Hopefully, my music loving friends will enjoy this anthem of a song that is etched in our minds forever and will remain live for many years to come. Special Note to My friends from Muziboo days, I did share this song back in 2016 and I am re-sharing here so, I owe you one more from Shailendra... which will be to make up for this share.

No monetary gain is expected from this upload. Final words for Shailendra ji: After initial resistance to participate in Hindi Cinema world, Shailendra entered and went on to become an integral part of Kapoor’s team. His success went beyond Kapoor, as he went on to work with other superstars like Dev Anand, Kishore Kumar, Dilip Kumar, Waheeda Rahman and Nargis, and composers such as S.D. Burman, Manna Dey and Shankar Jaikishan. It is known that Shailendra did not take on the assignment without knowing the full context of the story and making of the movie he was supposed to write song for. The story goes that Raj Kapoor took Shailendra along to a reading of Awara's script by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas. After Abbas finished narrating the story, Kapoor turned to Shailendra and asked if he had understood the gist. The poet replied: Awaaraa thaa / Gardish me thaa / Aasmaan kaa taaraa thaa / Awaaraa thaa (He was a vagabond / lost in the crowds / A star from the skies / A vagabond). Shailendra stood out among his contemporaries for his simple words without losing the depth of the message and his poetry touched the hearts in a profound manner. During an interview in 2012, Gulzar praised Shailendra: "I have always believed that Shailendra was the best lyricist of Hindi cinema. I know he was actively involved in the films he worked on and knew filmmaking very well. He shaped his songs to suit the characters and through his lyrics added other dimensions to the story." In 2016, a street was named after Shailendra - Geetkar - Jankavi Shailendra Marg in Dhauli Pyau locality of Mathura, the place where he spent most of his early life before moving to Mumbai.

  • Ab KahaaN Jaaye Hum_MMM_21Apr20
    Ab KahaaN Jaaye Hum_MMM_21Apr20 Song # 2: Ab KahaaN Jaaye Hum Theme: Shailendra Film: Ujala (1959) Lyricist: Shailendra MD: Shankar / Jaikishan Original Singer: Manna Dey Tribute By: Madhukar Mehta https://vimeo.com/412335645 Not originally planned but it just so happens that on May 1st we just passed Manna Dey’s Birthday, he would have been 101 and this song although a tribute to Shailendra, it also doubles as a tribute to the maestro Manna Da. Here I am presenting a philosophical song that cries out the heartfelt plea of a common man acted out by the Yahoo Man himself, Shammi Kapoor but in quite a different role. Another wonderful song written by Shailendra, composed by the S/J duo, and sung by the maestro Manna Da. Quite a challenge but I have tried to pull it off and hope my music loving friends will relate to the lyrics as they are true even today.

A little about Shailendra ji: Shailendra (30 August 1923 – 14 December 1966) was born in Rawalpindi, Punjab, British India (now known as Punjab, Pakistan) and died in Bombay, India at 43. He came from humble beginning as he worked as a welding apprentice in the Central Railways but reached to become one of the most well-known lyricists of Indian cinema, Shailendra led a rich colorful life which included both struggle and success. Many might not know his complex life story — his tryst with communism or his battles of navigating the world as a Dalit man — the way his evergreen lyrics are known. He tried to downplay his cast standing as his own son realized the same when he was 20 years old. Shailendra, who is considered to be the first to combine Hindi and Urdu poetry traditions, first started attending mushairas and kavi sammelans (poetry conferences) while he was working back in the days at Matunga Railway Workshop when city was known as Bombay, now Mumbai. It was during this time that he got involved with the Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA), the cultural wing of the Communist Party of India (CPI) and began writing socialist-themed poems and songs set in post-Independence India. He created the famous slogan, “Har zor-zulm kee takkar mein, hartal hamara nara hai” (Strike is our weapon against every atrocity, every excess), this is used by protesters even today. It was one such poem on Partition, Jalta hai Punjab, that not only earned him literary acclaim but became his ticket to success in the world of cinema.

  • Meraa Joota Hai Jaapaani_MMM_23Apr20
    Meraa Joota Hai Jaapaani_MMM_23Apr20 Song # 1: Meraa Jootaa hai Jaapaani Theme: Shailendra Film: Shree 420 (1955) Lyricist: Shailendra MD: Shanker / Jaikishan Original Singer: Mukesh Tribute By: Madhukar Mehta https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FV6Hx4ZunNA This month, I have chosen “Shailendra” as my theme, and will be presenting three songs in paying my tribute to Shailendra, People’s Poet. To start on a lighter note, I have chosen a well-known oldie that I grew up listening to…. Typical Raj Kapoor in his innocent avatar from the golden era, a foot tapping number that he wrote. Caution: Use of good quality headphones may enhance your listening experience. Disclaimer: This upload is strictly for entertainment of like-minded amateur music lovers and is in no way intended to be an infringement on copyrights of the rightful owners of the original song. No monetary gain is expected from this upload. Humble beginning of Shailendra: Shankardas Kesarilal was the birth name given by his parents, but he adopted the name Shailendra so his father, who did not approve of his son becoming a poet, would not know his identity. Actor, producer and director Raj Kapoor happened to hear Shailendra recite the poem at an Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA), function when Kapoor was preparing for his directorial debut Aag, and promptly offered to buy the rights of the poem for a then-handsome sum of Rs 500, but Shailendra refused. Much later, Shailendra did reconsider, and a long and fruitful collaboration then happened between Kapoor and Shailendra, whom he fondly called Kaviraj and Pushkin. In the days when composers would recommend lyricists to producers, Shanker-Jaikishan once promised Shailendra that they would recommend him around but didn't keep their promise. Shailendra sent them a note with the lines, Chhoti Si Yeh Duniya, Pehchaane Raaste Hain. Kahin To Miloge, toh Poochhenge Haal. Shankar/Jaikishan realized what the message meant and having said sorry, turned the lines into a popular song. The song was featured in the film Rangoli (1962), for which the producer Rajendra Singh Bedi wanted to sign up Majrooh Sultanpuri as the lyricist. However, Shankar-Jaikishen insisted on Shailendra and the producer had to oblige. Shailendra had a burning desire to produce a film based on a short story by the great Hindi writer Phanishwar Nath 'Renu' titled Maare Gaye Gulfam, the film – “Teesri Kasam” was born on the sets of Bimal Roy's classic Madhumati (1958). In an interview, Shailendra's son, Dinesh, said, "His film is a legacy. Teesri Kasam was very close to my father’s heart. He lived and died for it." Indeed, Shailendra could not bear the pain of commercial loss of his cherished accomplishment and died at the age of 43.

  • Jaane Woh Kaise_MMM_09Mar2020
    Jaane Woh Kaise_MMM_09Mar2020 Song: Jaane Woh Kaise Film: Pyaasa (1957) Lyricist: Sahir Ludhiyanvi MD: S. D. Burman Original Singer: Hemant Kumar Tribute By: Madhukar Mehta https://youtu.be/01kvSDg_JoU I have chosen the melancholic song from Pyaasaa for my tribute to Sahir on his birthdate 08 March 1921. Pyaasa happens to be one of my all-time favorite movie and songs composed by Sachin da made a strong impression on me in my early days. Hopefully my music loving friends will enjoy my take on this Gem. Sahir Ludhiyanvi led a very complex life in spite of his brilliant poetic skills and confident demeanor. He was very close to his mother, perhaps because she was not well treated by his father and was left to fend for herself with Sahir as a child. Sahir was a loner, chain smoker and according to Javed Akhtar, he always drank standing up and remained pacing back and forth while his friend sat and carried on their conversations. Sahir never had any great ambitions but one that he would be the Best lyricist for Hindi Cinema and no one would be able to touch him, and so he did achieve his goal. Many of his associates and Bollywood Music Directors did not want to confront Sahir as he was quite an outspoken and accomplished contributor. Sahir demanded and achieved recognition for Lyricists. It is said that he demanded his remuneration to be one more Rupee over the singers just to make a point that he was more important to the film. Sahir had several love affairs but never committed to any of his lovers for life. Most of his poetry were full of spirit, philosophy, patriotism or despair but he also wrote some beautiful love songs such as Aage bhi Jaane Na Tu, and Abi Naa Jaao Chod Kar.
