I have the feeling that Rajendra Krishan, an icon among lyricists, if perhaps the most underrated, People discuss Sahir , Shailendra, even Gulzar and Javed, but not this guy whose work spans mpre than 3 decades.

Invite members to talk on this please

If Mohammed Rafi was the most versatile among all singers, C.Ramchandra was most versatile among all MDs, then Rajinder Krishan (RK) was the most versatile (and prolific too) among all lyric writers. The two other lyric writers who could come close to him were Qamar Jalalabadi and Majrooh Sultanpuri. From late 40s (when his Suno Suno Aye Duniya Waalo brought him instant fame) to late 70s, this genius wrote some of the most simple yet most poignant and philosophical songs, some of the best patriotic songs, some of the best ghazals, some of the best bhajans as well as some of the best ligh romantic and comic songs in Hindi movies. Just to prove this point, let me quote the following examples of some of his memorable movies / songs:

Chaley Jana Nahin Nain Milake and Kitna Haseen Hai Mausam(Light Romantic)
Yeh Zindagi Usi Ki Hai (Intense Romance in part I and poignant, wistful lyrics in part II))
Zameen Chal Rahi and Chal Ud Ja Re Panchhi (Philosophy)
Yeh Hawa Yeh Raat Yeh Chandni, Unko Yeh Shikayat Hai and Yun Hasraton Ke Daag (Ghazals)
Jahan Daal Daal Par Sone Ki Chidiya(Are there any better lyrics in praise of Matrubhoomi?)
Brindaban Ka Krishan Kanahiya and Badi Der Bhayi Nandlala (Beautiful bhajans)

RK was the only lyric writer who did not need to form a combo with one or two MDs to become successful. From Anil Biswas, Husnlal Bhagatram and C.Ramchandra to Sajjad Hussain, Hansraj Behl, Roshan and Madan Mohan; From Ravi and Chitragupt to Kalyanji Anandji, Lakshmikant Pyarelal and R.D.Burman; he wrote beautiful lyrics for all the legendary MDs. Even Naushad and Shankar Jaikishin too teamed up with RK in later years.

Truly a versatile genius.

Would like to add S.D.Burman and Salil Chowdhry, O.P.Nayyar and Usha Khanna; to the list of MDs with whom RK teamed up.

About Rajendra Krishna ji, whatever comments (above) have been made by my friends, much much much much more can be added.
I would raise one finger to show only one spot (I think it will shut the mouth of those who says RK was not upto the mark)...

and the one is Film - Jahan-Aara.

Listen to any (damn) song of the film & either the listner will start biting his/her nails or hand will move to pick-up the jam.

cheers!!

And talking of comedy songs also bring us to Padosan. Mere bhole balam, ek chatur naar, etc. are funny but never deviates from the the great usage of the language.

Suffice it to say that without the services of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and Rajendra Krishan, there would not have been a Madan Mohan.. Rajendra Krishan was more than a lyricist. He was also a script and dialogue writer par excellance.

Definitely the best after Shailendra (discounting Sahir)

Was listening while I was at home, songs from Anarkali. Absolutely wonderful! I am just c-n-p the song from Kabra's site. Hope everyone enjoys one of the most beautiful ghazals.

(dil kii lagI hai kyA, ye kabhI dil lagaake dekh
aa.Nsuu bahaake dekh kabhI muskaraake dekh
paravaanaa jal rahaa hai magar jal rahaa hai kyaa
ye raaz jaananaa hai to khud ko jalaake dekh )

mujhase mat puuchh mere ishq me.n kyA rakh hai
ek sholaa hai jo siine me.n chhuupaa rakhaa hai

daag-e-dil daag-e-jigar daag-e-tamannaa lekar (2)
mai.nne viiraa.n bahaaro.n ko sajaa rakhaa hai
mujhase mat puuchh

hai zamaanaa jise betaab miTaane ke liye (2)
mai.nne us yaad ko siine se lagaa rakhaa hai
mujhase mat puuchh

bhUlanevaale tujhe dard-e-muhabbat kii kasam (2)
mai.nne is dard me.n duniyA ko bhulaa rakh hai
mujhase mat puuchh

If it weren't for Rajendar Krishan's words, I and countless other fans of Talat Mahmood would've missed out on the following:


MAIN PAAGAL MERA MANWA ASHIANA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
MERA QARAAR LEJA ASHIANA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
AE ZINDAGI KE RAHI BAHAAR RAJENDAR KRISHAN
BERAHEM AASMAAN MERI MANZIL BAHANA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
ANKHON MEIN MASTI SHARAAB KI CHAAYA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
ANSOO SAMAJH KE KYOON MUJHE CHAAYA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
IT NA NA MUJHSE TU PYAR BADHA CHAAYA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
HUMSE AAYA NA GAYAA DEKH KABIRA ROYA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
YE ANSOO KHUSHI KE ANSOO HAIN EK NAZAR RAJENDAR KRISHAN
MAIN TERI NAZAR KA SUROOR JAHAN ARA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
PHIR WOHI SHAAM JAHAN ARA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
TERI ANKH KE ANSOO JAHAN ARA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
TUM JUDA HOKAR JAHAN ARA RAJENDAR KRISHAN
JALTI HAI DUNIYA JALTI RAHEGI KAMAL KE PHOOL RAJENDAR KRISHAN
BHOOL KO DUNIYA BHOOL NA KAVI RAJENDAR KRISHAN
CHOTI SI ZINDAGI MEIN KAVI RAJENDAR KRISHAN
HUM KARKE MOHABBAT KAVI RAJENDAR KRISHAN
LATH KAALI MATWALI KAVI RAJENDAR KRISHAN
MAAN KARE KYA KAVI RAJENDAR KRISHAN
MAIN PEEKE NAHIN AAYA KAVI RAJENDAR KRISHAN
AYE MERE HUMSAFAR MAALKIN RAJENDAR KRISHAN
KABHI TANHAIYON MEIN EK MEENAAR RAJENDAR KRISHAN
YAAD JAB AAE TERI MOHAR RAJENDAR KRISHAN
KAHAN HO KAHAN MERE JEEVAN SAHARE SANGDIL RAJENDAR KRISHAN
YE HAWA YE RAAT YE CHANDNI SANGDIL RAJENDAR KRISHAN
SHUKRIYA AARAM RAJENDER KRISHAN

And many more ...



zindagi ne kar diya, jab bhi udaas
aa gaye ghabra ke hum, manzil ke paas
sar jhukaaya, sar jhuka kar ro diye

Rajendra Krishna has always been my most favourite lyricist, may be because I also deeply fancy the music of Chitragupta, Madan Mohan and C. Ramchandra. The fact remains he has penned far more popular and lyrical songs for the Hindi movies spanning a period of almost four decades.

However, very little is known about his personal life. I have never read about his background or even about to which place he belonged. Can Pradeep Israni Ji or someone else throw light on his personal life?

few songs by rajendra krishna.

1) baharein phir bhi aayengi ( lahore- shyam sundar-1949)

2) mere piya se koi jake kehde (ashiyana-madan mohan -1952)

3) songs from the film Nagin (hemant kumar 1954)

4) ja ri jari o kali badariya (aazad-c ram 1955)

5) kahan ley chale ho (durgesh nandini- hemant kumar 1956)

6) kisike thukara kar arman- (pocketmar-madan mohan-1956)

7) chhup gaya koi re (champakali-hemant kumar-1957)

8) lagan tose lagi balma (dekh kabeera roya-madan 1957)

9) yun hasratonke daag (adaalat-madan 1968)

10) hum pyar mein jalanewalonko chain kahan- (jailor-madan-1958)

(* all songs in above list are sung by lata mangeshkar)


the famous duo Lata - Madan mohan rarely worked without Rajendra Krishna.
and large share of thier popularity goes to him for penning those beautiful songs.
