Hi
Thanks for titbits for an ignoramus person like me( dont even know the meaning of pancham).
I dont recognise all of the persons in the old picture. Would love it if you tag it.
Today on TimesNow saw some clips of Helen. Reminded me of this song from the movie Lahoo ko do rang.

A song by Kishore. Not so well known.

Enjoy
Regards

The 5th swar in the "Sa, Re, Ga, Ma, Pa, Dha, Ni, Sa" series.

Only Rafi saab and Lata ji had voices so flexible that they could stretch to the 5th (pancham) swar.

Front row (Left to Right): N.Dutta, Anandji, R.D.Burman, Omi (of the Sonik-Omi duo), Dattaram and Kanu Ghosh.

Back row (Left to Right): Pyarelal, S.D.Burman, Shankar, O.P.Nayyar, Salil Chowdhury, Jaikishan, Kalyanji, Laxmikant.


Speaking of rich, baritone voices, I am reminded of Hemant Kumar. Very distinguishable, very impressive.

I was aware of almost all but surely not all of them. Example I cannot place Kalyanji/Anandji, N Dutta, Dattaram etc.

Some trivia:

- Datta Ram was assistant to Shankar Jaikishan. He was the lead music director for Ab Dilli Door Nahi and Parvarish.
- Not many know that: On the "Hai Apna Dil to Awara" song from Solva saal sung by Hemant, the Mouth Organ was played by RD Burman.

Hi.
Sadhana has never looked better than in Rajkumar.
Some titbit. The movie did quite well and ran for 24 weeks as the producer did not want to spend money on silver jubilee celebrations.
2 great songs by Geeta Dutt.


Enjoy
Regards.
PS : Thanks

One from only movie which had both Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar. The movie Andaz with music by Naushad.



One from Anil Biswaas stable. (Movie : Araam)




Many again wont know, Talat Mahmood acted in the movie. (Of course he has acted in many more in lead roles as well)


@Avi, On Rafi's high pitch songs there are quite many. But one in high tone, from the lesser know movies (Patanga with Shankar Jaikishan)
The song has some amount of sadness embedded, but still one of the most lively ones to listen to.

Typically Rafi used to sing for Dilipkumar and Mukesh for Raj kapur. However in Aandaz, Mukesh sung unforgettable songs for Dilipkumar and Rafi for Raj kapur. Apart from 'tu kahe agar' , 'jhum jhum ke nacho aaj' and 'hum aaj kanhi dil kho baithe' are equally melodious and soulful.

Most of Rafi's high-pitched songs were reserved typically for "loud", brashful stars such as Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, etc as soon as the late 60s came in.

If you noticed, most of the songs he sung for Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, etc., earlier than the late 60s, were light, soft and sung in a croon.

+1. Andaz is one of the best song albums of that era. All songs are pure gold.

I think she looked her best in earlier films such as Parakh, Asli Naqli, Ek Musafir Ek Hasina, etc. Even in Aarzoo, Mere Mehboob, Mera Saaya & Waqt she looked extremely lovely!

But her most breathtaking look was reserved for one of her biggest hits - Wo Kaun Thi? Simply stunning!

She was the epitome of beauty in this particular song, from which the image is taken. Let's gawk at that eternal charmer!

Hi
Sadhana in those back and white had a different look. In Rajkumar(in color) she had the glamorous look which became an instant hit with the college going males. I dont remember if Mere Mehboob was released earlier but I didnt see it as I wasnt a fan of Rajendra Kumar.
A song for today. Great song but I cant imagine Pran singing.

One more. Strictly speaking doesnt belong to this thread but because of Madan Mohan posting here.

Enjoy Regards

Couple of songs for today.

1. We have rarely talked of Roshan. The most famous is Taj Mahal (Jo Wada kiya wo..) and Dil Hi To Hai (Laga Chunari me daag). But there are many more lesser known gems by him, with some really fantastic singing and lyrics. Here is one from the movie called Bheegi Raat



2. A Madan Mohan classic from a lesser known movie (Dekh Kabira Roya). And this time its the silken voice of Talat

Was listening to "Hum se aaya na gaya" while on my way to work. Pure gold. Thanks for posting it. The movie has another beautiful song by Manna Dey "Kaun aaya mere man ke dwaare".

Rafi and Rajendra kumar spent quite sometime together and covered over 150 odd songs. For me, one of my all time favs is this one which does not feature in the Top 10 Rafi Raj combine. Nevertheless a gem

Got time to listen to some wonderful mentions here after a few days

A pity rather, eh? I'd mentioned his Bawre Nain and Nau Bahar in an earlier post (My top favourite any time music) and of course, Milan

Today's Roshan's gem from me would be Julm-e-urfat, from Taj Mahal



I like this one more than the other popular Jo wada kiya and Paon choolene do

A Classic one there! Even I love it.

Again a different theme: Continuing with Talat, but this time music by Salil Chowdhary

Every one knows the happy duet from Chaya (Itna na mujhse to pyaar bada). But the Talat solo is a classic.



The other one is from the movie "Ek Gaon ki Kahani"

Hi
There is another song in this movie viz Dekh Kabira Roya which became quite popular. The movie wasnt a success but the songs were well received.


An evergreen song by Talat.

Enjoy
