Remembering Mukesh

Mukesh Chand Mathur was born on 22 July 1923 in Delhi. Amongst the numerous nominations and awards he won, his song "Kai Baar Yuhi Dekha Hai" from film Rajnigandha (1973) won him the National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer. Mukesh is also popular as being the voice of legendary actor Raj Kapoor.
He got his break as a playback singer for actor Motilal in 1945 with the film Pehli Nazar with music composed by Anil Biswas and lyrics written by Aah Sitapuri. The first song that he sang for a Hindi film was "Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De".
Mukesh created his own singing style with the help of music director Naushad Ali, who helped Mukesh to come out of his Saigal style and create his own style. Naushad gave him songs for the film Andaz. Initially Mukesh was the ghost voice of Dilip Kumar in this movie and Mohammed Rafi sang for Raj Kapoor. He delivered many Hits for Naushad in films like: Anokhi Ada (1948), Mela(1948), Andaz (1949). Other composers who used Mukesh voice for Dilip Kumar in Hit songs like Jeevan Sapna toot gaya were Anil Biswas in Anokha Pyar, Ye Mera Diwanapan hai, Shankar-Jaikishan in Yahudi and Suhana Safar and Dil Tadap Tadap ke, Salil Choudhary in Madhumati. 
In 1974, Mukesh received National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer for the song "Kai Baar Yuhi Dekha Hai" from Rajnigandha (1974), and Filmfare Awards for the songs "Sab Kuch Seekha Humne" in the movie Anari (1959), "Sabse Bada Naadan Wahi Hai" in Pehchaan (1970), "Jai Bolo Beimaan Ki" in Beimaan (1972) and "Kabhi Kabhie Mere Dil Mein", the title song of film Kabhie Kabhie (1976). A total of around 1,300 songs were sung by him. 
Mukesh sang many memorable songs for Kalyanji Anandji music director duo. Mukesh sang more songs with the K-A duo than any other composer. From "Naina hai jadoo bhare..." Bedard Zamana Kya Jane (1958) composed by Kalyanji alone as Kalyanji Virji Shah, and "Main hoon mast madari..." Madari (1959) as the first Kalyanji-Anandji-Mukesh combo, to "Chahe aaj mujhe napasand karo..." Darinda/ 1977, the K-A, Mukesh combination gave numerous popular songs like "Chhalia mera naam...", "Mere toote hue dil se...", "Dum dum diga diga" Chalia(1959), "Mujhko iss raat ki tanhai mein..." Dil Bhi Tera Hum Bhi Tere (1960), "Hum chhod chale hain mehfil ko..." (Ji Chahta Hai), "Humne tumko pyar kiya hai jitna..." (Dulha Dulhan), "Chal mere dil lehraake chal..." Ishara and "Dheere se chalo..." Johar Mehmood In Goa,"Main to ek khwab hoon..." and "Chand si mehbooba ho..." Himalay ki God Mein(1965),"Waqt kartaa jo wafaa..." Dil Ne Pukara,"Deewanon se yeh mat poocho..." Upkar, "Khush raho har khushi hai..." Suhaag Raat and "Humsafar ab yeh safar kat jaayega..." Juari, "Chandi ki deewaar..." and "Le chal le chal mere jeevan saathi..." Vishwas (1969), "Koi jab tumhara hriday tod de..." Purab Aur Paschim, "Darpan ko dekha..." Upaasna, "Jo tumko ho pasand..." Safar and "Mujhe nahin poochni tumse beeti baatein..." Anjaan Raahein (1970).
Mukesh died of a heart attack on 27 August 1976 in Detroit, MichiganUSA, where he had gone to perform in a concert. That morning, he got up early and went to take a shower. He came out panting and complaining of chest pains. He was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead. The rest of the concert was completed by Lata Mangeshkar. His body was flown to India by Lata Mangeshkar, where a grand funeral ceremony was held in the presence of several actors, with personalities of the Indian film industry and fans paying tribute. When news of his death reached Raj Kapoor, he burst into tears, and remarked, "I have lost my voice,which is a testimony to the association of Mukesh's voice (in playback) to the immensely popular songs of Raj Kapoor's films. A famous song of the 50s featured on Bharat Bhushan Aa laut ke aa ja mere meet is another example of his earlier melodies, as is Dil tadap tadapke keh raha hai, picturised on Dilip Kumar.
After Mukesh's death, his newer, hitherto unreleased, songs were released in 1977 in films such as Dharam VeerAmar Akbar AnthonyKhel khiladi kaDarinda and Chandi sona. The year 1978 also featured a considerable number of Mukesh's songs in films such as AahutiParamatmaTumhari kasam and Satyam Shivam Sundaram, where Mukesh sang his last film song Chanchal sheetal nirmal komal for Raj Kapoor's younger brother, Shashi Kapoor.

Movie Review "Judwaa 2"

 


Firstly, Dhawan — although earnest in his portrayal as long-lost twins Prem and Raja — simply doesn’t have the star power or charisma that Khan possesses. It’s not for want of trying, but the jokes are juvenile (Sample this: Who’s the president of United States: Donald Duck or Donald Trump?)
The film begins with a smuggler getting cross with a rich businessman Malhotra (Sachin Khedekar) when he rats on him to custom officials over a bag of illicit diamonds. But the villain takes off with one of Malhotra’s newborn twins (Raja) to punish the good Samaritan.
Raja, who was an insignificant pawn in the smuggler’s avenging game, grows up on the streets of Mumbai after a random lady picks him up from the railway tracks and adopts him as her son, but Prem grows up as a sheltered son in the lap of luxury and overprotective parents in London. Prem is a diffident gentleman, while Raja gets by in life with his wits and brawn.
Everybody in Judwaa 2 overacts, and the dialogues feel like they were written by an adolescent for his high school drama.

   The women, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu, are on call to look pretty and be airheads with         toned bodies. While Fernandez does her bit convincingly by giggling gregariously, Pannu is a misfit and       looks lost.
Dhawan’s bronzed torso seems to be another character in this tedious comedy. When everything else fails, a shirtless action sequence or a shirtless song sequence is meant to salvage the worn-out film. Barring few jokes that land, the majority of the gags fail to evoke any emotion.
Even the physical comedy borders on the crude. And employing sidekicks with speech impediments (Rajpal Yadav as Raja’s mate) isn’t funny — back then or now.
But the reboot of the songs by Anu Malik, Oonchi Hai Building and Tan Tana Tan, are fun-filled and take you down a nostalgic route. However, a glitzy music video or a cameo by the original star of Judwaa, Khan, can’t make up for a flawed comedy.


Rating - 2.5/5
