A name forgotten in the passage of time, Ghulam Mustafa (G M) Durrani was one of the most popular singers of the forties. He was spotted by the film producer Sohrab Modi in the year 1935 while the singer was giving a radio performance. He gave him his first break in the 1935 movie ‘Saaed-e-Hawas’, a historical under the baton of music director Bundu Khan, a classical musician popularly known as “Taan-Talwar” Bundu Khan. His first song was a ghazal, whose lyrics were as follows: “Mastonko shem farz hai peena Sharab ka, gutti mein meri padh gaya qatara sharab ka.”
When the concept of playback singing came up, he was the first to lend his voice for the film titled ‘Bahurani’ around the year 1936. The film’s music director was Rafeeq Gazanavi. Durrani was then working as a fulltime artist in AIR. In those days of pre-independence British raj, private recordings were not allowed. On Rafeeq’s insistence, he settled to sing, but not before the music director agreed to the various conditions laid by him. Durrani wanted the recording to be fixed on a Sunday, so that nobody would be allowed to enter the studio, and didn’t want his name to appear anywhere on the credit titles. The song was a duet with Miss Rose, an Anglo-Indian, who had limited experience of singing. He was paid a sum of Rs.75 for the song, as against his monthly salary of Rs.70 at AIR. He eventually gave up his job, and took up singing as a career by 1940.
He sang with the most prolific music directors of that era, including Naushad Ali, Shankar Rao Vyas and A. R. Qureshi (better known as Alla rakha, Pt. Ravi Shanker’s famous tabla accompanist) for films like Mirza Ghalib, Humlog, Magroor, Shama, Namaste, Sabak and scores of others and became immensely popular. Many noted singers started their careers with him and he inspired a whole generation of upcoming singers. It is said that he was the idol of Mohammed Rafi, who even imitated him in his initial days! In fact, in 1944 Rafi recorded what he considered his first Hindi song for the film Gaon ki Gori (1944) under Shyam Sunder, Aji dil ho kaaboo mein with his idol, G.M. Durrani. Similarly, Ae Chorre Ki Jaat Badi Bewafa, a duet with G. M. Durrani, was Lata’s first song for composer, Naushad.
Geeta’s story was no different. She also started her career with GM Durrani in the movie Do Bhai (1947) with the duet Aaj preet ka naata toot gaya under SD Burman’s baton. Geeta was only 16, but both complemented each other very well. Both singers’ mellifluous vocals brought out the inherent sadness of the protagonists on losing their love.
In the year 1951 came what can be rated as their best duet. ‘Lucknow Chalo Ab Rani’ in ‘Sansar’ was a fun song with the hero trying to persuade the heroine to come to Lucknow with him. This song served as the precursor to this new genre of music which became very popular in the 50’, by which time, Geeta had become a superstar.

The song is filmed on Agha and an unknown actress. Both Geeta ji and Durrani sahab have done marvelous voice modulations in this song. Hats off to both and the composer E.Shankar Shastri. Aga is of course good, but the actress has very beautiful and expressive eyes.
