Dil Tadap Tadap Ke – Madhumati (1958)

As much as Mukesh’s success and fame was due to his association with Raj Kapoor and Shankar-Jaikishan, several of the classic songs of his were from other composers, notably Salil Chowdhury. Here is a song from the Bimal Roy film, Madhumati, where Mukesh sings for Dilip Kumar, in duet with Lata Mangeshkar singing for Vyjanthimala.

Lyrics: Shailendra

Dil tadap tadap ke keh raha hai aa bhi jaa
Tu humse aankh na chura, tujhe kasam hai aa bhi jaa
Tu nahin to ye bahaar kya bahaar hai
Gul nahin khile to tera intezaar hai
Ke tera intezaar hai

Dil dhadak dhadak ke de rahaa hai ye sada
Tumhari ho chukin hun main
Tumhare saath hun sada

Tumse meri zindagi ka ye shringaar hai
Jee rahi hun main ke mujhko tumse pyaar hai
Ke mujhko tumse pyaar hai

Muskuraate pyaar ka asar hai har kahin
Dil kahaan hai hum kidhar hain kuchh khabar nahin
Kidhar hai kuchh khabar nahin

Duniya Bananewale – Teesri Kasam (1966)

Mukesh Chandra Mathur was one of the legendary singers of the golden era of Hindi film music. The team of Raj Kapoor, Mukesh and Shankar-Jaikishan was successful in making films like Awara and Shree 420 famous among people as far away as Russia.

Here is a song, used as the leitmotif for the Basu Bhattacharya film Teesri Kasam, where Mukesh sings for Raj Kapoor.

Lyrics: Shailendra

Duniya Bananewale Kya Tere Man Mein Samaayi
Kaheko Duniya Banayi

Kahe Banaye Toone Maati Ke Putle
Dharti Yeh Pyari Pyari
Mukhde Yeh Ujle
Kahe Banaya Toone Duniya Ka Khela
Usme Lagaya Jawaani Ka Mela
Gup-Chup Tamasha Dekhe, Wah Re Teri Khudaai

Preet Banaake Toone Jeena Sikhaaya
Hansna Sikhaaya, Rona Sikhaaya
Jeevan Ke Path Par Meet Milaye
Meet Milake Toone Sapne Sajaaye
Sapne Sajaake Toone Kahe Ko De Di Judaai

Aaja Re Pardesi – Madhumati (1958)

The Madhumati soundtrack was one of the masterpieces created by Salil Chowdhury in this Bimal Roy film. The haunting Aaja Re Pardesi was rendered perfectly by Lata Mangeshkar, picturized on Dilip Kumar and Vyjanthimala.

Lyrics: Shailendra

Aa ja re pardesi

Main to kab se khadi is paar, ye ankhiyaan
Thak gayi panth nihaar, aaja re pardesi

Main diye ki aisi baati, jal na saki jo bujh bhi na paati
Aa mil mere jeevan saathi, O

Tum sang janam janam ke phere, bhool gaye kyoon saajan mere
Tadpat hoon main saanj savere, O

Main nadiya phir bhi main pyaasi, bhed ye gehra baat zaraa si
Bin tere har saans udaasi, O

Din dhal jaye – Guide(1965)

From the film Guide, with lyrics penned by Shailendra, this balmy gem of a song is truly one of the masterpieces woven by the adakari of Mohd. Rafi and the brilliant composition by S D Burman. Presented in all its glory here, with the picturization on Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman.

Lyrics:

Din Dhal Jaaye Hai Raat Na Jaaye
Tu To Na Aaye Teri Yaad Sataaye

Pyaar Mein Jinke Sab Jag Chhoda
Aur Huye Badnaam
Unke Hi Haathon Haal Hua Yeh
Baithe Hai Dil Ko Tham
Apne Kabhi The Ab Hain Paraaye

Aisi Hi Rimjhim Aisi Phuhaarein
Aisi Hi Thi Barsaat
Khud Se Judaa Aur Jag Se Paraaye
Hum Dono The Saath
Phir Se Woh Saawan Ab Kyon Na Aaye

Puchho na kaise – Meri Soorat Teri Aankhen(1963)

No post about Sachin Karta would do justice to him if it doesn’t explore his classical roots. A disciple of the noted Bengali classical singer, Bhismadev Chattopadhyay, he created several raga based film songs. The most noted among these is this gem, sung by Manna Dey. The original song in Bengali is by Kazi Nazrul Islam. A Bengali rendition by Asha Bhonsle is available here.

Raga: Ahir Bhairav, Thaat: Bhairav

Lyrics: Shailendra

Puchho na kaise maine rain bitai
Ik pal jaise ik yug bita
Yug bite mohe neend na aayi

Ik jale deepak ik man meraa
Phir bhi naa jaaye mere ghar ka andhera
Tadpat tarsat umar gavaayi

Na kahin chanda na kahin taare
Jyot ke pyaase mere nain bichaare
Bhor bhi aas ki kiran na laayi

Mere Saajan Hai Us Paar – Bandini(1963)

Sachin Karta himself has sung a few songs he composed for in Hindi films. One of these – which utilizes his nasal tone and bard-like voice, evokes the Bhatiali folk and the life of the rural boatmen of Bengal.

Lyrics: Shailendra

O re maajhi, O mere maajhi
Mere sajaan hai us paar
Main mann-maar hoon is paar
O mere maajhi Ab ki baar
Le chal paar Le chal paar

Mann ki kitab se tum
Mera naam hi mita dena
Gun to na tha koi bhi
Avgun mere bhula dena
Mujhe aaj ki bida kaa
Mar ke bhi rahega intezaar

Mat khel jal jayegi
Kehti hi aaj mere mann ki
Main bandini piya ki, Main sangini hoon saajan ki
Mera kheenchti hai aanchal manmeet teri
