Gaana of the week…….

Jaan-E-Mann was a very different film and told in a very novel fashion. The use of colour and visuals is very impressive though the plot seemed cliched. The movie suffered more than it should have for being pitted against SRK‘s ‘Don‘ for a Diwali/Eid release. Anu Malik however did a good job with the music dept and the movie is remembered for Akshay Kumar‘s comic timing. This song in particular stands out for me and is shot in very interesting angles, the waltzing shadow dancers give it that extra punch. Sonu Nigam I feel has given Anu Malik his best songs and ‘Ajnabi Shehar’ one also lines up among those forgotten and neglected melodies. Priety Zinta looks as fresh as a daisy and Salman Khan gives us one of his rare and restrained performances. Watch the film at least once if you haven’t, for this guy Shirish Kunder has a future…..

Dil Hi Dil Main‘ was another of A.M.Rathnam‘s futile attempts to ride on the back of A.R.Rahman‘s music. Made Initially as ‘Kadhalar Dinam‘ in Tamil and later dubbed in Telugu as ‘Premikula Roju’, the movie starred a Barbie-looking Sonali Bendre and a the late Kunal Singh sporting a girlie hairdo. Nothings worth writing bout the film as I haven’t been able to sit through it despite trying thrice. However once can’t take away anything from ARR for another memorable soundtrack, which might not figure amongst his best but is definitely worth listening. The lyrics by ‘Mehboob’ are pretty bland but the voice of ‘Abhijeet‘, the locales, a ravishing Sonali add to the timeless music of ARR.

If you were amongst the unlucky ones to have watched this film, then you would also be able to relate to a dandiya song sung by the one-and-only ‘Udit Narayan‘. I prefer this song as opposed to the dandiya number that was featured in the promos of this film. Sadly the poor guy never made it big in bollywood, but this song will be etched in the memory or ARR fans for a long time, I hope you’ll be humming this song for the rest of the day…

Sarfarosh is one such movie that you can watch anytime irrespective how many times you’ve seen it before. Released in 1999 every song in the album went on to be played by every music channel to this day. Brilliantly directed by John Mathew Matthan at a time when tensions were flaring, the movie was a blockbuster hit. Haven’t heard of another movie from the director again though. The song ‘Hoshwalon ko khabar’ is picturized on Sonali Bendre and Aamir Khan as a dream sequence and Jagjit Singh’s soulful vocals are etched in memory long after you’ve heard it.

This song is from a very forgettable movie called ‘Tarkieb‘ that featured a whole array of stars in a whodunit murder mystery. But this post is about the song and not the movie, and therefore ladeej and juntalmen I give you, ‘Kis ka Chehra’. Shot on a very young looking Tabu and Milind Soman(now you know why women still swoon at his mention!) this song is backed by Jagjit Singh and Alka Yagnik on the vocals. The lyrics are plain simple but its the soulful voice of Jagjit Singh that makes it memorable.

‘Tu jo nahin hain’ was eclipsed by the super duper ‘Kya mujhe pyaar hain’ sung by KK for the film ‘Woh Lamhe‘. I don’t say that Pritam is a great music director but even Anu Malik churns out his best for the Bhatt stables. This song wasn’t again part of the promos and featured in the beginning of the movie along wit h the titles. It’s a possible chance that may have even missed it while searching for their seats. Brilliant vocals by an unheard singer Glen John, Enjoy!

Lyrics below:

tu jo nahi hain toh kuchh bhi nahi hain
yeh maana ki mehfil jawaan hain haseen hain
tu jo nahi hain toh kuchh bhi nahi hain
yeh maana ki mehfil jawaan hain haseen hain
tu jo nahi hain toh kuchh bhi nahi hain

samajh mein na aaye yeh kya maajara hain
tujhe paake dil mein yeh khaalisa kya hain
samajh mein na aaye yeh kya maajara hain
tujhe paake dil mein yeh khaalisa kya hain
yeh khaalisa kya hain
kyun har waqt dil mein ??? kali hain
kyun har waqt seene mein rehti kami hain
tu jo nahi hain toh kuchh bhi nahi hain
yeh maana ki mehfil jawaan hain haseen hain
tu jo nahi hain toh kuchh bhi nahi hain

jidhar bhi yeh dekhen jahaan bhi yeh jaayen
tujhe dhundhati hai yeh paagal nigaahen
jidhar bhi yeh dekhen jahaan bhi yeh jaayen
tujhe dhundhati hai yeh paagal nigaahen
yeh paagal nigaahen
main zinda hoon leking kahaan zindagi hain
meri zindagi toh kahaan kho gayi hain
tu jo nahi hain toh kuchh bhi nahi hain
yeh maana ki mehfil jawaan hain haseen hain
tu jo nahi hain toh kuchh bhi nahi hain

‘Bol na halke halke’ was probably one of the most underrated and forgotten songs of 2007. Brilliant vocals by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Mahalaxmi Iyer but with the film(Jhoom Barabar Jhoom) sinking at the box office and the absence the promos, this song is unheard by many.

Check this space every weekend for more rare/nostalgic songs..

Lyrics below

dhaage tod laao chaanadani se noor ke
ghoonghat hi bana lo roshani se noor ke
sharm aa gayi toh aaghosh mein lo
ho saanson se ulajhi rahein meri saansein
bol na halke halke, bol na halke halke
honth se halke halke, bol na halke

aa nind ka sauda karein, ik khwaab de, ik khwaab le
ik khwaab toh aankhon mein hai, ik chaand ke takiye talein
kitane dino se yeh aasamaan bhi soya nahi hai, isako sula de
bol na halke halke, bol na halke halke
honth se halke halke, bol na halke

umarein lagi kehate huve, do labj the ik baat thi
woh ik din sau saal ka, sau saal ki woh raat thi
kaisa lage jo chup chaap dono, ho pal pal mein puri sadiyaan bitaayein
bol

bol na halke halke, bol na halke halke
honth se halke halke
o dhaage tod laao chaanadani se noor ke
o ghoonghat hi bana lo roshani se noor ke
sharm aa gayi toh aaghosh mein lo
ho saanson se ulajhi rahein meri saansein
bol na halke halke, bol na halke halke
honth se halke halke, bol na halke

Husn bhi aap hain, Ishq bhi aap hain
Jis taraf dekhiye aap hi aap hain

Baaghon mein kamini, Mandir mein moorti
Dekhi na aaj tak yeh khoobsoorati

Ganga bhi aap hain, Jamuna bhi aap hain
Jis taraf dekhoon aap hi aap hain

Update: The song is from the movie Shapath and sung by Anup Goshal and compesed by Bappi Lahiri
