1961- Lata Mangeshkar – Mehfil Mein Meri

14 min read

I started out the sequence of annually reviews of Lata Mangeshkar’s Hindi film songs on 6th February 2022. These days as we commemorate her 2nd demise anniversary, I’m presenting the upcoming aspect in the collection.

Ahead of I progress let me once yet again insert that all the common guides on Hindi movies point out the film with the calendar year of obtaining censor certification. The film may well not have been released in the exact same year.

So considerably I’ve included till 1960. Lata Mangeshkar started her job in 1947 with the film, ‘Aap Ki Seva Mein’, beneath the baton of composer Datta Davjekar. What an apt title to begin the career! And she had completed pretty much 13 several years in the Hindi movie industry by the time the ten years of the 60s started off. She was even now at the best, even though Asha Bhosle was a strong competitor. Geeta Dutt was pretty much out of the mainstream Hindi cinema by the beginning of the 60s. Shamshad Begum also had a comparable circumstance. Suman Kalyanpur was a soaring playback singer and someway confined to B quality films. She wasn’t but the picked out voice for the very first rung composers of Hindi cinema.

Lata Mangeshkar’s voice was not now a extremely slim voice, as it was in the late 40s or the early 50s. It was continue to refreshing and sweet, even though with just a slight touch of straining at the significant notes. But I assume which is because of the regular adjust in the voice over the years and that as well of a playback singer recording music repeatedly for around a 10 years.

She wasn’t however singing for S D Burman, even though the opening calendar year of the 60s noticed her singing all over again for C Ramchandra.Lata Mangeshkar sang for V Shantaram’s film, Stree underneath the baton of C Ramchandra. But she sang on her personal terms. According to Manek Premchand’s reserve ‘Yesterday’s melodies tomorrow’s memories’, her primary time period was that Ramchandra should not show up at the recording periods or specifically experience her. The recordings were conducted by Datta Davjekar, who was Ramchandra’s close close friend, along with Sudhir Phadke.Permit the story be correct or bogus, the final result was phenomenal! Lata’s wonderful voice with C Ramchandra’s desirable tunes and pure Hindi lyrics by Bharat Vyas. C Ramchandra could yet again make common melodies when Lata Mangeshkar was back again.

For 1961, Lata Mangeshkar sang 158 songs for 45 Hindi movies, including 88 solos and 70 other tunes.

Before we go to the composers table, enable me set highlights of it.Chitragupt was once again, 4th time in a row, the composer to file her songs for the maximum selection of Hindi movies in 1961. From 1958 onwards, he experienced 7 to 8 movies with Lata Mangeshkar with a great deal of honey dipped melodies to cherish. A happy moment for a Chitragupt lover like me!R D Burman started off his innings with Mehmood’s House manufacturing, Chhote Nawab (yet again pretty an apt title to open up the innings) and though Lata Mangeshkar wasn’t singing for his father, he experienced Lata Mangeshkar singing for his initial venture in Hindi films.

Let us have a appear at the table

Numbers in the bracket suggest amount of tunes for that composer in that yr

*Dilip Dholakia composed for a pair of films for Lata Mangeshkar in 1961. The very first film, Saugandh experienced five tracks by Lata Mangeshkar and it was a dubbed film. The 2nd movie, Teenager Ustad experienced only a person solo by Lata Mangeshkar, but the tunes are not offered on the net at current. And the music had only the movie version, no audio was launched.

**The tunes involve the duet variation of Teri Zulfon Se Judai from Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai, which is present only in the film keep track of. If we think about the couplets recited by Asha Parekh as a component of the song, it is a duet. Audio variation is of program a Rafi solo.

Now, let’s have a glimpse at the desk of duets with male playback singers.

And,With feminine playback singers

As much as the other music are concerned,A trio for Sapan Suhane (it is on the checklist as properly), a trio for Pyar Ki Pyas and a track with 4 co-singers for Pyar Ki Pyas all over again.

Let us start the melodious journey without the need of a even further ado,

1. Chitragupt –Lata Mangeshkar sang for 8 films in 1961 for Chitragupt. And I have a single tune from just about every film. Permit the films be the so-termed B grade or very low spending plan or whatsoever! Just hear to the pure magic Chitragupt results in with Lata Mangeshkar. It was in truth very complicated for me to select just 1 tune, as most of the films experienced at the very least two or 3 of my favourites. Now I can see that I have picked much more of duets than solos for this phase.

Dil Ne Kuchh Aise Pukara – Hum Matwale Naujawan (1961) with Refrain / Chitragupt – MajroohWhat a wonderful melody! It’s a pity that this sort of a gem is not well acknowledged owing to commercial failure of the film. The sweetness of the tune and of Lata’s voice is unparalleled.

Teri Duniya Se Door – Zabak (1961) with Rafi / Chitragupt – Prem DhawanZabak was a costume drama that includes Shyama and Mahipal. The song is nevertheless incredibly popular and surely justifies to be! It is one particular of the most well-liked duets by Lata Mangeshkar and Rafi. The tune is relatively very similar to Laagi Chhute Na Ab To Sanam from Kali Topi Laal Rumal.The film is really complete of fantastic tracks, Lata’s solo, Jane Kaisa Chhane Laga is a generally sweet Chitragupt melody, however not extremely popular.

Daal Bhi De Zulfon Ki Chhao – Ramu Dada (1961) with Rafi / Chitragupt – MajroohChitragupt however was somewhat confined to B quality films, his creative imagination was generally at the top. In an evidently B quality film, glimpse at the really sweet melody. I’m incredibly fond of this tune and several occasions hear to it in loop. The lyrics of the music were being later on adjusted to, Daal Bhi De Palkon Ki Chhaon, and a few more alterations in the antara, nevertheless it was picturised with the authentic lyrics. There was a difficulty with mixing/ dubbing the audio, so the video clip song goes out of sync at numerous spots. So I desired to insert the unique audio song. The tune is picturised on Salim Khan, who seems pretty handsome and Jaimala.A couple of other songs of the film are also my favourite, such as the infectious Kamal Barot solo, Suna Hai Jab Se Mausam.

Baghon Mein Khilte Hain Phool – Suhag Sindoor (1961) with Talat Mahmood / Chitragupt – Rajendra KrishanI won’t say I have numerous favourites from the movie, but this smooth, romantic melody is nonetheless a person of Lata’s finest duets with Talat Mahmood for me. I’m positive there would be a lot of readers liking the track.

Zara Sambhaliye Adayein Aap Ki – Bada Aadmi (1961) with Mahendra Kapoor / Chitragupt – Prem DhawanThe tune is picturised on Subbiraj Kakkar and Vijaya Choudhary. However the film has solos by Rafi, the duets are provided to Mahendra Kapoor. And these are the only two songs of Lata Mangeshkar for the movie. Nonetheless a further romantic melody.

Sona Na Sitaron Ka Hai Kehna – Opera House (1961) / Chitragupt – MajroohThis is just one of the motion pictures the place Lata Mangeshkar was a part of all the songs of the motion picture. And it was without a doubt challenging to choose a tune for today’s list. Ultimately I realised that I experienced ample duets on the record, and decided to preserve the great, Dekho Mausam Kya Bahar Hai out of the listing. This quickly paced, charming melody is pretty near to my heart. It’s so fantastically crafted. The interludes, other orchestration is just fantastic!

Baat Chalat Thak Thak Gaye Naina – Tel Malish Boot Polish (1961) with Manna Dey / Chitragupt – Prem DhawanIt was further than doubt that this amazing semi classical music would characteristic on today’s list. Kumkum dances and sings the song with Chandrashekar in disguise. Excellent rendition by the singers. This movie also has a quantity of other common music.

Subah Hoti Hai Sham Hoti Hai – Aplam Chaplam (1961) / Chitragupt – Prem DhawanThis gorgeous music has a mesmerizing contact! It was difficult for me to seize the precise temper in the tune. It seems the girl is reminiscing about her childhood and is hopeful about her foreseeable future with her beloved. I imagine the music also has a contact of melancholy and repentance as perfectly. The track has temper changes and Lata Mangeshkar manages it wonderfully. A very distinctive composition than Chitragupt’s typical type!

2. Shankar Jaikishan –Out of the 7 movies Lata Mangeshkar sang for him in 1961, I’ve picked five tracks from 5 unique films. And I yet again located myself deciding upon duets.

Tum Roothi Raho Major Manata Rahoon – Aas Ka Panchhi (1961) with Mukesh / Shankar Jaikishan – Hasrat JaipuriWhat a sweet melody! Shankar Jaikishan were being certainly magical in the tune. What a excellent expression of love! I made use of to hear to this tune considering that childhood and the music is etched on my head. I will not ever neglect it such as the interlude items.

Kashmir Ki Kali Hoon Key – Junglee (1961) / Shankar Jaikishan – Hasrat JaipuriIn addition to Lata’s mischievous expressions, I cherished the facial expressions of Shammi Kapoor. Also lovable! And how Saira Banu manages to tease him! Just best!

Yeh Aankhen Uff Yumma – Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai (1961) with Rafi / Shankar Jaikishan – Hasrat JaipuriI like equally the duets by Lata Mangeshkar and Rafi sung for this motion picture. While Nazar Mere Dil Ke Paar is also fantastic, I could not opt for it more than these common duets. So in the long run I chose 1 of the duets. The two the duets can be taken as their bests.

Ek Sawal Major Karoon – Sasural (1961) with Rafi / Shankar Jaikishan – ShailendraA stage overall performance by Rajendra Kumar and B Saroja Devi. A quite well-known tune!I recognized one particular point although going by way of the tracks of 1961, the the vast majority of the films are remembered for Rafi solos and Lata-Rafi duets. It appears as if until 1960, Lata Mangeshkar was the major target for Shankar Jaikishan and bit by bit it shifted to Rafi with the beginning of the 60s. I really do not know if you share this observation or not!

Tu Roop Ki Rani – Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja (1961) with Talat Mahmood / Shankar Jaikishan – Hasrat JaipuriWe are applied to listening to smooth and relaxing tunes in Talat Mahmood’s silken voice. This is a bit rapidly paced music, but excellently sung by equally Lata Mangeshkar and Talat. Totally magical!

3. Salil Chowdhury –Lata Mangeshkar sang for 5 movies beneath the baton of Salil Chowdhury. Of these films, Chhaya and Maaya are pretty well-liked, while Mem Didi, even though it experienced fantastic songs, was underrated. I really do not have a particular favourite from Char Diwari, so I gave it a skip.

Itna Na Mujhse Tu – Chhaya (1961) with Talat Mahmood / Salil Chowdhury – Rajendra KrishanA quite interesting scenario in the track in which Sunil Dutt fulfills Asha Parekh only on the problem that they won’t deal with each individual other. Immediately after assembly they sing one of his poems and a lovely poem that turns out to be! Absolutely wonderful track! One of my excellent favourites!

Ja Re Ja Re Udd Ja Re Panchhi – Maaya (1961) / Salil Chowdhury – MajroohThe movie experienced the soulful, Ae Dil Kahan Teri Manzil and the intimate, Tasveer Teri Dil Mein as properly, but I chose this lovely tune that would melt your heart. The experience of helplessness and futility are extremely very well conveyed by Lata Mangeshkar.

Major Janti Hoon Tum Jhooth – Mem Didi (1961) with Mukesh / Salil Chowdhury – ShailendraWhile I was tempted to insert a person of the four solos by Lata Mangeshkar, the innocence in this duet urged me to include it. A extremely young Tanuja looks like her more youthful daughter, Tanisha Mukherjee. The music is picturised on Tanuja and Keysi Mehra. Mem Didi is also a single of the films where by Lata Mangeshkar is a portion of all the tunes of the film.

Naam Mera Nimmo – Sapan Suhane (1961) with Manna Dey & Dwijen Mukherjee / Salil Chowdhury – ShailendraOne of my favourite trios from Hindi movies. What a peppy and energetic music it is! If I remember effectively the movie variation has a little altered lyrics. ‘Yoon Hi Tu Mat Lalchana’ is replaced by ‘Yoon Hello Hai Mera Thikana’. If you check out the video cautiously, you will occur to know.

4. S N Tripathi –Lata Mangeshkar sang for 5 movies below his baton in 1961 with a total of 13 songs. I have additional tracks from three motion pictures.

O Pawan Vegse Udanewale Ghode – Jai Chitod (1961) / S N Tripathi – Bharat VyasA combination of fantastic melody, Lata Mangeshkar’s voice and pure Hindi lyrics! Ignore if it belongs to a historic movie. Lata Mangeshkar experienced a couple of solos in the movie, and the other solo, Saanjh Ho Gayi Prabhu is similarly excellent.

Man Ki Gagaria Mein Tu Chamka – Piya Milan Ki Aas (1961) with Rafi / S N Tripathi – Bharat VyasI was heading to add her solo, but remembered about this soulful melody picturised on Ameeta and Manoj Kumar. The film is one particular of the several socials Tripathi composed for and for me he was similarly superior in this too.

Chand Dhalne Laga – Amrit Manthan (1961) / S N Tripathi – B D MishraThis is the only song by Lata Mangeshkar for the film. But what a terrific melody! Just hear to the relaxing comfortable rendition. The film was again a mythological a person and Tripathi directed it too.

5. Vasant Desai –Vasant Desai experienced a pair of movies with Lata Mangeshkar in 1961, one particular mythological and one social, with a full of 14 tunes. And of training course I have a person music every from both of those the movies.

Badalon Barso Nayan Ki Kor Se – Sampoorna Ramayan (1961) / Vasant Desai – Bharat VyasI like a few of solos by Lata Mangeshkar from this motion picture. When the other solo, San Sanan Sanan Sanan is really very good far too, I included the one which I like far more. And there are pretty several tunes that review the eyes to a moon.

Chanda Dhale Pankha Jhale – Pyar Ki Pyas (1961) / Vasant Desai – Bharat VyasThe music is like a concept track and it appears thrice in the film. One edition is by Geeta Dutt while the other two by Lata Mangeshkar. The added movie has the latter. It is incredibly difficult to view an harmless baby like Honey Irani in distress.

6. Madan Mohan –Lata Mangeshkar had seven tunes for Madan Mohan in a couple of movies. I selected only just one of the films, with three solos and a duet by Lata Mangeshkar. The song has a stunning prelude that results in a ideal aura of a lonely night and what gorgeous expressions by Lata Mangeshkar.

Badali Se Nikla Hai Chand – Sanjog (1961) / Madan Mohan – Rajendra Krishan

7. Kalyanji Anandji –For 1961, the duo had only 4 tracks in a few of films. I really do not have a favorite from Pyase Panchhi, but even though Lata Mangeshkar had just one particular song in Passport, it’s my all time favorite and I have extra it.

Saaz e Dil Chhed De – Passport (1961) with Rafi / Kalyanji Anandji – Faruq KaiserOne of the most passionate songs of Hindi cinema. Surely one of their finest duets.

8. Naushad –The choosy composer Naushad experienced just one particular film with Lata Mangeshkar with 4 music.

Dhoondho Dhoondho Re Sajna – Ganga Jumna (1961) / Naushad – Shakeel BadayuniA delightfully vibrant and joyous track from the movie. Pretty difficult to sing, even though that doesn’t sound like just one! I believe Mohammad Shafi was Naushad’s assistant for this motion picture and the previous has allegedly tuned the music.

9. Sudhir Phadke –Sudhir Phadke is mainly remembered for this Meena Kumari starrer Hindi film, however really it was very last Hindi film. The film experienced 4 music by Lata Mangeshkar and the noticeable decision is,

Jyoti Kalash Chhalke – Bhabhi Ki Chudiyan (1961) / Sudhir Phadke – Pandit Narendra SharmaPure Hindi lyrics, with an exceptional tune and most distinguished rendition by Lata Mangeshkar. For me it’s a single of Lata Mangeshkar’s very best Hindi film tracks. A blissful practical experience to hear to the song in the early early morning. Glad to get a good audio-visible observe by Javed Raja.

10. C Ramchandra –I’ve by now extra the tale driving Lata Mangeshkar singing once more for C Ramchandra. She sang 5 songs for the film such as a splendid duet with Mahendra Kapoor. But for today’s record my apparent choice was,

O Nirdayi Preetam – Stree (1961) / C Ramchandra – Bharat VyasThe song portrays a faux anger shown by Shakuntala to Dushyant. A extremely amazing and pure Hindi lyrics by Bharat Vyas woven in an similarly interesting tune by Chitalkar. With this movie, Lata Mangeshkar created a melodious comeback in C Ramchandra’s musical workforce. Alas! It did not very last lengthy.

11. R D Burman –I’ve included about R D Burman as properly in the generate up by now. Lata Mangeshkar sang 5 music together with 3 duets with Rafi for the movie. Her extremely first music below Pancham da’s baton was this beautiful semiclassical mujra picturised on Sheila Vaz. Enjoy the song. Here’s the connection for the entire music with 3 stanzas.

Ghar Aaja Ghir Aaye Badra – Chhote Nawab (1961) / R D Burman – Shailendra

12. Snehal Bhatkar –Lata Mangeshkar sang a couple of duets with Mukesh for the movie. But afterwards she was not available for recordings and it’s a nicely recognized truth that it culminated in Mubarak Begum singing her job very best music for the movie.

Sochta Hoon Yeh Kya Kiya Maine – Hamari Yaad Aayegi (1961) with Mukesh / Snehal Bhatkar – Kidar SharmaThe song has a incredibly informal language and that helps make it extra playful. A fantastic tune to hear to following a tense working day.

13. Khayyam –This was Lata Mangeshkar’s only music for Khayyam in the calendar year. But the track is very well-known and is generally included in their ideal duets record. The track has virtually come to be an identity of the film.

Jeet Hi Lenge Baazi – Shola Aur Shabnam (1961) with Rafi / Khayyam – Sahir

14. Roshan –Roshan had just a couple of music with Lata Mangeshkar for the movie Warrant. The music contain just one of the previously tracks by Anand Bakshi, which is a Mujra sung by Lata Mangeshkar. For today’s list however I have included her duet with Mukesh.

Naino Mein Kyun Aan Foundation – Warrant (1961) with Mukesh / Roshan – Prem DhawanVery sweet track with Tonga rhythm.

15. Jaidev –Though Lata Mangeshkar was not singing for S D Burman, she sang for Jaidev in Hum Dono. It could be on Dev Anand’s insistence, but the final result was phenomenal. Equally the devotional music had been solos by Lata Mangeshkar and are near to my heart.

Prabhu Tero Naam – Hum Dono (1961) / Jaidev – SahirNothing is equally blissful on the earth than listening to the bhajan.

16. Ravi –Ravi also experienced Lata Mangeshkar singing for just a person film in 1961 with a overall of 4 songs. While there were being 3 solos as well, I found myself incorporating this common duet from the motion picture.

Bikhra Ke Zulfen Chaman Mein Na Jana – Nazrana (1961) with Mukesh / Ravi – Rajendra KrishanThe track is picturised on Raj Kapoor and Vyjayantimala. One of the very well regarded intimate duets of Hindi cinema. Yet again it is 1 of the tunes that I am utilised to listening to for several many years.

I finish my checklist listed here. I’ve offered 30+ songs together with solos, duets and trios.Please add your personalized favourites by Lata Mangeshkar from 1961.
