Many tune administrators in our movie business’s historical past don’t seem to be remembered lately for they didn’t have a protracted profession and may now not make a long-lasting have an effect on within the tune scene as in comparison to their extra a success opposite numbers. Alternatively, within the quick span that they labored, they did get a hold of some uncommon gem stones which stay evergreen even lately.

This blog-post recollects one such tune director of the 1940’s and 1950’s- Shaukat Hussain Ali Haidri who made his debut within the business as Shaukat Dehlavi with the movie Dildar in 1947, however turned into later given the title Nashad when he turned into signed for the movie Naghma in 1953.  Allow us to get started the weblog with two of his hottest compositions:

Movie Baradari (1955) (Directed by means of Okay Amarnath)

Music: ‘Bhula nahin dena ji bhula nahi dena, zamana kharaab hai daga nahi dena…’

Singers: Lata Mangeshkar & Mohammed Rafi

Music: ‘Tasveer banata hoon tasveer nahi banti…’

Singer: Talat Mehmood

Each and every Hindi film-song lover can simply have in mind the lyrics, the track or even the singers of those stunning compositions, but how many people know that the tune director of those two gem stones turned into Nashad?

Born in Delhi within the 12 months 1923, Shaukat Hussain’s love for tune quickly introduced him to Bombay searching for paintings. He were given his smash in 1947 to compose the songs for the movie Dildar.

In 1948, he had 3 releases-Toote Taare, Suhagin and Jeene Do. In Toote Taare, he composed the track for the well-known ghazal, ‘Na kisiki aankh ka noor hoon…’ within the voice of singer Rajkumari which changed into standard. (By the way I got here throughout a piece of writing which mentioned that this ghazal which for a few years were considered written by means of Bahadur Shah Zafar has been written by means of Muztar Khairabadi, grandfather of author Javed-Akhtar. (

Here’s a catchy Geeta Dutt solo from the movie Jeene Do (1948):

Music: ‘Hum unko dekhne waale ae chand tujhe kya dekhen…’

In 1949 he presented singer Mubarak Begum within the movie Aaiye.

Music: ‘Mohe aane lagi angdayi, aaja aaja balam…’

Within the 12 months 1954, when tune director Mohammed Shafi signed the newcomer Suman Kalyanpur for her first movie Mangu, Nashad gave her a smash in Darwaza, which launched in the similar 12 months. Her pretty duet from the movie which she were given to sing with Talat Mehmood turned into a large hit:

Music: ‘Ek dil do ha talabgaar badi mushkil hai…’

Here’s a naughty quantity from the movie Jawab (1955), sung by means of Asha Bhosle and picturized aptly on Geeta Bali to seize her mischievous character:

Music: ‘Primary toh ho gayi re barbaad rama pyar karke…’

The movie additionally had a cheerful and unhappy model of a lullaby by means of Talat Mehmood picturized on Balraj Sahni.

Lots of the motion pictures for which Nashad composed tune weren’t regarded as ‘A’ grade motion pictures or most sensible motion pictures or even excellent songs in ‘B’ grade motion pictures now and again went ignored. In 1949 his songs for the movie Dada have been spotted however he didn’t get any notable giant initiatives. Lots of his songs have been sung by means of Shamshad Begum.  However he additionally recorded songs with Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Surinder Kaur and Suman Kalyanpur.

A unprecedented duet within the voices of Shamshad Begum and Surinder Kaur from the movie.

Music: ‘O, aa jao zara phir meri bigdi ko banane…’

His tune in Zindagi Aur Toofan in 1958 turned into delightful and melodious and all songs changed into standard. Starring Nutan and Pradeep Kumar, this Muslim social took us down the lanes of Lucknow and advised the story of Nawabs and ‘Kotha’ ladies. Here’s a pretty duet by means of Asha Bhosle and Shamshad Begum picturized on Nutan and Minoo Mumtaz.

Music: ‘Badi mushkil se hum samjhe woh hame kya samajhte hain…’

The title alternate to Nashad…

Shaukat Ali turned into given the title Nashad by means of lyricist Nakshab Jarchavi in 1953 for the movie Naghma which starred Ashok Kumar and Nadira. It so took place that the movie turned into going to be Nakshab’s debut movie as director and being buddies with tune maestro Naushad Ali, Nakshab asked him to compose tune for Naghma. The ones days Naushad’s title as tune director hooked up to any undertaking turned into sufficient to create a buzz and good fortune turned into assured. However Naushad turned into sure by means of his contract to Kardar Productions and expressed his incapacity to take in this task.

Alternatively, Nakshab Jarchavi turned into now not a person to reside in this for lengthy. He then were given a singular thought and signed Shaukat Dehlavi because the tune director for his movie however insisted on converting his title to Nashad, which the latter authorized with none qualms. In a couple of days, when the announcement of this movie turned into made with Nashad’s title being obviously discussed because the tune director, it turned into assumed by means of everybody that the title Naushad were misspelt.  

Almost definitely Nakshab himself would possibly have executed it as a ploy to create a bit of confusion. The tips from him obviously mentioned the fitting spelling however as no person had heard of the title Nashad sooner than this, it turned into by no means sought to be clarified and it turned into taken as a right by means of many press articles that it should be a spelling error for Naushad. Nakshab Jarchavi turned into fortunate and his movie Naghma benefitted from this and changed into a large hit.

Listed below are two super-hit songs from the movie, each sung by means of Shamshad Begum. The songs have a haunting high quality and can stick with the listener for a very long time:

Music: ‘Kahe jaadu kiya jaadugar baalma…’

Music: ‘Badi mushkil se dil ki bekarari ko karaar aaya…’

After the good fortune of Naghma in 1953, when the movie Baradari launched in 1955, the similar roughly factor took place.  The movie turned into a musical hit particularly the 2 songs- ‘Bhula nahi dena ….’ and ‘Tasveer banata hoon…’. The movie stays Nashad’s absolute best paintings however by hook or by crook in other people’s psyche the songs have been related to Naushad and now not someone else by means of the title of Nashad. To the listener, a few of these songs can have even appeared like Naushad’s compositions of that technology.

That Nashad turned into a skilled tune director can also be vouched for by means of the number of songs he composed- from peppy dance numbers to unhappy songs to melodious romantic duets and poignant heart-touching songs, he turned into at house in most of these, however by hook or by crook the title by no means registered in lots of a listener’s thoughts. Pay attention to this pretty duet sung by means of Talat Mehmood and Asha Bhosle from the movie Bada Bhai (1957):

Music: ‘Chori chori dil ka lagana buri baat hai…’

This foot-tapping Asha solo from the similar movie picturized on Helen is so standard of such a lot of of Helen’s dance numbers of that technology:

Music: ‘Hi Hi Hi, Hi Hyderabadi…’

It is a uncommon antique duet within the soothing voices of Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi from the movie Hathkadi (1958):

Music: ‘Piya jab se liya toone haathon mein haath…’

He composed tune for a lot of eventualities in his quick Hindi movie profession from 1947 to 1963. Right here is a sturdy fast paced quantity from the movie sung by means of Mohamed Rafi and picturized on Johny Walker from the movie Zara Bachke in 1959. The music fantastically captures the original spirit of the actor which turned into so feature of his on-screen symbol:

Music: ‘Pata be aware karo hamara, hum se aa milna dobaraa…’

Having a look again, Shaukat Ali himself didn’t stay his title consistent and composed tune for various motion pictures below other names- Shaukat Ali, Shaukat Dehlavi, Shaukat Hydari and Shaukat Hussain. Then got here the 12 months 1953 when he turned into requested to modify his title to Nashad. Sarcastically, the title alternate value him so much as he by no means were given credit score for the few gem stones he did compose and despite the fact that he retained the title Nashad for the remainder of his profession, his title lately stays confined to the pages of movie historical past and only a few have in mind him or his tune.

Later he migrated to Pakistan in 1963 and from 1964 and changed into a a success tune director there. He passed on to the great beyond in 1981. What characterised his songs turned into most likely the simplicity of the tune association which made the lyrics stand out and the singers introduced in all of the emotion to reinforce the wonderful thing about the compositions. I will not finish the weblog with out posting this melodious romantic duet from Pyar Ki Dastaan (1961) picturized on Sudesh Kumar and Ameeta and sung by means of Talat Mehmood and Suman Kalyanpur.

Music: ‘Solar le meri jaan, keh rahi zubaan, pyar ki dastan…’

Nashad may by no means repeat the good fortune of the movie Baradari however he by no means misplaced hope and no matter got here his means he gave his absolute best. One of the crucial songs have been actually pretty however were given misplaced within the tussle with larger hits and extra a success motion pictures. Those phrases of the stunning poignant quantity composed by means of him and sung by means of Mohammed Rafi from the movie Jawab, 1955 appear apt for Nashad- ‘Aaj gham kal khushi hai yehi zindagi solar le pyaare, Aadmi woh joh himmat na haare…’.
