This article is written by Mr. Gaurav D Bijoor.
Mohammed Rafi – “Mujhe Darde Dil Ka Patha Na Tha Mujhe Aap Kis Liye Mil Gaye, Main Akela Yoon Hee Majhe Main Tha Mujhe Aap Kis Liye Mil Gaye”
A very rare and a beautiful duet between Mohammed Rafi Saab and Ronu Mukherjee (daughter of Hemant Kumar) titled “Sara mora gajra chhudaya toonhe, garva kaise lagaya toonhe, O rasiya mana basiya, teekha teekha kajra lagaya toonhe …. Ko jaadu jagaya toonhe” from the film “Do Dil” written by Kaifi Azmi and music scored by Hemant Kumar. This film had Biswajeet & Rajashri in the lead roles. The other great song from this film being a super solo sung by Rafi Saab is titled as “Tera husna rahe mera ishka rahe tho ye subha ho ye sham rahe na rahe” indeed a master-piece composition.
The few other great classics by Rafi Saab with Hemant Kumar are as follows
1)Â Â Â Â Â “Mori Vinathi Suno” a solo by Rafi Saab from the film Taj written by Rajinder Krishna
2)Â Â Â Â Â “Dil mein teri” a duet by Rafi Saab with Asha Bhosale from the film Badal Barsaat
3)Â Â Â Â Â “Yeh mard bade” a solo by Rafi Saab from the film Miss Marry
4)Â Â Â Â Â “Brindaban ka kishana kanaiya” from the film Miss Marry
5)Â Â Â Â Â “O raat ke musafir chanda jara batade” from the film Miss Marry
Friends I heard these classic renditions for the first ever time and was totally mesmerized and having no words at my disposal just uttered “Great Beauty”. Does the above few renditions belong to any generation, caste OR creed and whether the same pertains to any class belonging to either of the rich or the elite OR the poor and the downtrodden.
The sheer subject of Music I personally believe can never ever be a part or parcel of any past or future generations to come and simultaneously ones age cannot be a factor in simply determining the period of the music whatsoever.
When a nut of my caliber can enjoy the beauty & spirit of the by-gone music and melodies what makes the innumerable others like me to refrain from cherishing those great classics I deeply wonder? I have also been a great admirer and fan of Sonu Nigam, Udit Narayan, Kailash Kher and several of the other present day other contemporaries ruling the roast of today’s cinema and music; but no one has ever stopped me in loving & respecting the Greatest of them all in the beautiful form of our beloved king of melody Mohammed Rafi Saab.
Let the period change as also the generation changes but where on Earth has the beautiful Nature changed and thus simply why are we all changing?
Indian cinema especially the hindi film industry has over the past several years have given us great artists, musicians, lyricists, great producers & directors, magnificent play-back singers and above all the unforgettable classic feature films which we today’s generation should equally love and respect and above all arrange to treasure these sentiments to enable us to pass on the same to the future generations to come and for them to cherish. Is this not our duty and part of our dear social obligations friends?
Today I would love to present a small list of the great renditions by Mohammed Rafi Saab which falls under the sad or the darda bhare naghme category and the same have been chosen from my very personal choice amongst the very few.
