Mention of the name Mohammed Shafi brings to mind some timeless and peerless classics.  The immortal lorie song “Koi Pukare Dhire Se Tujhe” from ‘Mangu’ (1954), is a composition that is difficult to forget.

“Ye Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke” (1963) was based on a real life story, but the Indian censors, movie makers as well as the Indian audience were not matured enough to deal with the subjet. As a result, the topic got diluted, trivialised and sensdanalised to such an extent that the end product was no longer a faithful representation of the case that this movie was based on. In any case, the movie makers had their disclaimer ready (just in case) that their story bore no resemblence to any persons or incidents.

In Hindi movies, there are songs for all occasions including songs meant to assuage the hurt feelings of the beloved. Now, how can one go about assuaging the hurt felings of one’s beloved ? The common and gentlemanly method is to say sorry. But then Hindi movie heroes (like Government employees) :) can never see the errors of their ways and cannot say sorry. Even when they say sorry then do not mean it. In a railway station, one listens to the announcement saying ” The train is running late. We are sorry for the inconvenience”. The announcer hardly sounds sorry while making this announcement.

But as the number of songs increased, I needed to keep track of them, because sometimes ( on two or three occasions) I repeated the same song. Thankfully some of my alert readers pointed this fact out to me, and I replaced the duplicated song with another song.

The golden era of Bollywood music (1950-1980) saw an embarrassment of riches as far as talented music directors were concerned. Among all these music directors, Ravi is one of the lesser known names. But if one looks at his output, he must be regarded as the most successful and most classy music directors.
