MukeshMukesh Chand Mathur (formal name Zoravar Chand), (July 22, 1923, Delhi, India - August 27, 1976), popularly known as Mukesh, referred to as the man with the golden voice, was a well-known Indian playback singer.

Mukesh's voice was noticed by Motilal (a popular actor in Hindi films, also a distant relative of Mukesh) when he sang at his sister's wedding. Motilal took him to Bombay, let him stay with him and even arranged for singing lessons for him. During this period, Mukesh managed to bag a role in a Hindi film, Nirdosh (Innocent) (1941). He got his break as a playback singer in 1945 with the film Pehli Nazar (First Look). The first song he sang for a Hindi film was Dil Jalta Hai to Jalne De (If the heart burns, let it burn) , which was incidentally picturised on Motilal.

He is best known for the songs he sang as a playback singer for Raj Kapoor, a legendary actor/director of Bollywood in 1950s and 1960s.

In 1974, Mukesh received a National Award for the song Kain baar yoon bhi dekhaa hai from Rajnigandha (1974), and Filmfare Awards for the songs Sab Kuch Seekha in the movie Anari (1959), Sabse Bada Nadan in Pehchaan (1970), Jai Bolo in Be Imaan (1972) and Kabhi Kabhi in the film of the same name (1976).

He died of a heart attack on August 27, 1976 in Detroit, Michigan, USA where he had gone for a concert. This was soon after he sang the evergreen song Ek Din Bik Jaayegaa, whose lyrics say "One day you will be turned into ashes, all that will be left will be the words you spoke, leave a symbol of yourself by putting your songs on the lips of others before you die".

When the news of his death reached Raj Kapoor, he remarked that he had lost his soul, which is a testimony to the timeless and unforgettable association of Mukesh's voice (in playback) to the immensely popular songs of Raj Kapoor's films.

Mukesh's son, Nitin Mukesh, was a fairly popular singer in the 1980s and sings mostly devotional religious songs these days.

Mukesh Chandra Mathur

Mukesh( 1923 - 1976 )

Mukesh Chandra Mathur was born in a small middle class family in Delhi. He was interested in acting and singing right from childhood and was a great fan and admirer of Kundan Lal Saigal. In spite of the fact that he only studied till the 10th grade (metric exam), he was able to obtain a good job as an assistant surveyor in the department of public works, where he worked for seven months.

In 1940, Mukesh had recorded secretly some non filmi songs in Delhi . Then, Mukesh was bitten by the Bombay bug like scores of other young people before and after him. He arrived in Bombay with the hope of becoming a movie star. He stayed with his relative the famous actor Motilal.

His debut as a singer came in the film 'Nirdosh'. The song was "dil hi bujha hua ho to...". Then in 1944 he followed with a duet with singer Kusum for the film 'Us paar'. The song was "Jara boli ri ho...". In 1945 he sang with Khursheed "Badariya baras gayi us paar..." for the film 'Murti'. By this time he had established a small place for himself in the hearts of his audience. In 1945, Anil Biswas asked him to record a song for the film 'Pehli Nazar'. The raag was darbari and the song "dil jalta hai to jalne de..." was a huge hit, popular to this day. Mukesh had arrived. By 1948, the streets of the sub continent were humming with his songs from Aag, Anokhi Ada, Mela, Veena and Vidya.

In 1949, came another mile-stone in his life. In the studios of the great actor Prithviraj Kapoor there were two young musicians Shanker and Jaikishen. The young Raj Kapoor asked them to provide music for his own films. Shanker-Jaikishen asked Mukesh to sing for them and for ever afterwards, Mukesh would be Raj Kapoor's singing voice. Films like Aawara and Shree 420 spread the voice of Mukesh all the way to Russia where in the streets of Moscow you could hear people singing "aawara hoon..." and "mera joota hai japani...".

With Motilal's help, Mukesh got a role as an actor in the film Years later, he was to act again in Raj Kapoor’s Aah in 1953. However fate had other plans for him.He was best known for his singing talent.

It was under Naushad with Mela (1948) and particularly Andaaz (1949), that Mukesh finally discovered his own style. Andaaz (1949) was a major triumph for Mukesh. All his four solos were raging hits - Tu Kahe Agar, Jhoom Jhoom ke Naacho Aaj, Hum Aaj Kahin Dil Kho Baite, Toote na Dil Toote na. It is interesting to note that though Mukesh in later years was regarded as the voice of Raj Kapoor, in Andaaz, Mukesh's songs went on Dilip Kumar while Mohd. Rafi sang for Raj Kapoor.

The partnership with Raj Kapoor started with Aag (1948) where Raj's feelings of despondency and despair were vividly caught by Mukesh in Ram Ganguly's composition Zinda Hoon Is Tarah, and ended with R.D. Burman's Ek Din Bik Jaayega in the film Dharam Karam (1975). In its course was an endless list of hits. Among them are the evergreen songs of Awaara (1951), Shri 420 (1955), Parvarish (1958), Anadi (1959), Sangam (1964), Mera Naam Joker (1970).

However life was not always that easy and smooth. Following Awaara's success, Mukesh almost ruined himself when he sidelined his singing career to pursue acting - to try and make it as a singing star. Mashuqa (1953) with Suraiyaand Anuraag (1956) with Usha Kiron both sank at the box-office. (He also did a small role as a tangewala enacting his own song - Choti si Zindagani in Aah (1953))

Wizened by the ordeal, Mukesh returned to playback singing only to find that offers had dried up. The situation reached a point that his children Nitin and Ritu were turned out of school as they were unable to pay their fees.

It was finally with Yeh Mera Deewanapan Hai from Yahudi (1958), that Mukesh finally came back with a bang. Other hits that year like Madhumati, Parvarish and Phir Subah Hogi meant there was no turning back. Even S.D. Burman who had not utilized Mukesh's services for over a decade composed those two masterpieces for him - Chal ri Sajni from Bombay ka Babu (1960) and O Jaanewaale Ho Sake To Laut ke Aana from Bandini (1963).

Mukesh thereafter flourished right through the 1960s and mid 1970s with soulful hits like Main to Ek Khwab Hoon (Himalay ki God Mein (1965)), Jeena Yahaan Marna Yahaan (Mera Naam Joker), Maine Tere Liye hi Saat Rang ke Sanpne Chune (Anand (1970)), Main na Bhoolonga (Roti, Kapda Aur Makan (1974)) and of course Main Pal do Pal ka Shayar Hoon and Kabhi Kabhie (Kabhi Kabhie (1976)).

Mukesh worked with several music directors, lyricists, co-singers and was the on-screen voice for several actors - notably, Raj Kapoor and Manoj Kumar. Mukesh also acted in a few films like Mashooqa and Anurag, appeared in a cameo role as the kochavan in Aah, and composed the music for a handful of films which he produced.Among the other recent music directors for whom Mukesh sang a good number of his songs were Laxmikant Pyarelal, Kalyanji Anandji, Salil Choudhary, Usha Khanna, R.D. Burman, and S.D. Burman. Another music director to have used Mukesh’s voice well was Khaiyyam. The lyrics of Sahir Ludhianvi, Khaiyyam’s music and Mukesh’s voice created magic in the film Kabhi Kabhie.

His last recorced song was Chanchal, Sheetal, Nirmal, Komal from Satyam Shivam Sundaram (1978). He died on 27th August 1976, of a sudden heart attack in Detroit, while on a concert tour of the U.S.

_________________________________________________________________________________________

The House Where the Soulful Singer Lived-






The house where the soulful singer Mukesh lived in Chandni Chowk is now a rabbit warren. What was once a sprawling haveli has been taken over by encroachers, who have made ugly little factories in it, where gold plating is done on trendy items by groups of young men, who are paid a pittance for their labours. If a fire were to break out in this ramshackle place, the fire brigade would have a tough time in controlling it, and by the time they complete their operation, not many would be found alive.

Mukesh Chandra Mathur was born in this haveli in 1920 and went to DAV School from it with a bag of books slung on his shoulder. The late K. Dayal, who was his classmate, used to say that even in those early days Mukesh's voice had a haunting effect on the listeners at friends' houses. His brother, R.C. Mathur, who became an income-tax officer in Delhi, also sang well. And we all know about Nitin Mukesh, who draws applause by rendering his father's favourite songs.

At one birthday party Mukesh and his friends shared a cake made by a Pathan Nanbai followed by delicious paranthas from Paranthewali Gali, because in those days there was no fast food, not even instant chips, so much in demand now by both kids and grown-ups. They washed down the stuff with lassi and followed it up with kulfi. At school functions, Ghantewala's sweets were popular. But the boys had to contribute four annas each to buy them. And, of course, do without the soft drinks so easily available now. Mukesh used to sing at family weddings also. At one such celebration the veteran actor Motilal was also present in his capacity as a distinguished relative. Kahishtas are known for their lavish parties and their food preparations are still talked about.

Instant hit


After the non-vegetarian dishes had been served and Motilal had had a couple of pegs, it was time for some music. Mukesh was called upon to sing, and the way he sang left a deep impression on the great actor. He suggested that the boy be sent to Bombay (it was a long way from becoming Mumbai then). After initial hesitation, Mukesh was allowed by his family to make a trip to Bollywood; and once he got a toe-hold there, thanks to Chacha Motilal, there was no looking back for the young man, whose "Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De" became an instant hit.

Mukesh's friends naturally missed him - as he did them - but Bombay had its own charm for some one brought up in the sleepy kuchas of Old Delhi. It is said that he had to take the help of the bottle (and director Anil Biswas) to render "Dil Jalta Hai... ." like a drunkard. And the habit grew over the years, for even great artistes need some stimulant to keep them going. And then the example of no less a singer than Saigal was there.

Raj Kapoor, who happened to be about the same age as him, was the up-and-coming star and Mukesh's voice suited him so well that it led to a memorable combination. There was a rare earthy quality in Mukesh's voice, soaked in the still, sad music of humanity, with its veneer of pathos that struck a deep chord in many a heart, and still does even now when the great singer is no more.

His house in the Dharampura area of Katra Kushal Rai, though a dilapidated building is home to Bangladeshi refugees. Despite being over 100 years old, the house (or whatever is left of it) is not a protected monument. However, a heartening development has been its inclusion in the MCD-organised Heritage Walks. Not far from it is the haveli where Motilal lived before going away to win fame in Bombay. Even now, when a transistor plays those timeless songs of Mukesh, the vintage singer seems to come alive. One can almost imagine him leaning from a balcony of the old haveli to catch the strains of his voice. [/b]
