gata rahe mera dil cover

Authors' Description

Look behind the scenes of fifty celebrated songs, from an estimated repository of over one lakh! 'De de khuda ke naam pe': when Wazir Mohammed Khan sang these words in India's first talkie, Alam Ara, he gave birth to a whole new industry of composers, lyricists and singers, as well as an entirely new genre of film-making that is quintessentially Indian: the song-and-dance film. In the eight decades and more since then, Hindi film songs have enraptured listeners all over the world. From 'Babul mora, naihar chhooto jaye' (Street Singer, 1938) to 'Dil hai chhota sa' (Roja, 1992); from the classical strains of 'Ketaki gulab' (Basant Bahar, 1956) featuring Bhimsen Joshi to the disco beats of Nazia Hassan's 'Aap jaisa koi' (Qurbani, 1981); from the pathos of 'Waqt ne kiya' (Kaagaz Ke Phool, 1959) to the exuberance of the back-to-back numbers in Hum Kisise Kum Naheen (1977), here is an extraordinary compilation, peppered with trivia, anecdotes and, of course, the sheer joy of music. Find out answers to questions like: With which unreleased film did Kishore Kumar turn composer? In which song picturization was dry ice first used? Which all-time classic musical was initially titled Full Boots? Where was the title song of An Evening in Paris shot? The idea for which song originated when the film-maker visited Tiffany's in London? Which major musical partnership resulted from the celebrations around an award function for a commercial jingle for Leo Coffee? How many of your favourites find mention here? Make your own list!

The songs from Mahal were very well received by audiences and musicians. One number, ‘Mujhse mat pooch mere ishq mein kya rakha hai’, surely served as the inspiration for composer Ravi’s song: ‘Badle mere sarkar nazar aate hain’ from Chaudhvin Ka Chand (1960) sung by Asha Bhonsle.

Vijay Anand, who was officially neither the director nor the producer of the film, but is supposed to have ghost-directed it. He moved to his flat on Pali Hill and had a table lamp custom-made to play the chime whenever the lamp was switched on.

Vijay Anand was the ghost director of the film, but was not officially credited for the same, as told to the authors by Dev Anand in an interview in his studio in 2010. Vijay was so much in love with the tune, that when he moved to his flat at Pali Hill, he had a lamp custom-made to play the chime whenever the lamp was powered on

Add a box at the end- Kolkata based Jayati Mukherjee, an amateur singer who has been sining the song for years, adds : There were two more lines in the first antara - Pyar ke jalte zakhmoon se jo dil mein ujala hai, Aab jo bichad ke aur bhi zyada bharne wala hai - which would be played on AIR during the initial days. However, the version which later made it the cassettes and CDs were sans these lines . Sanjeevani, an upcoming vocalist, had also sang the song with these two lines in a TV show
