Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Aisa lagta hai jo na hua hone ko hai

Posted on: November 10, 2012


When I was a pre teen and even teenager, I did not like old songs at all. In fact, I and my peers found old songs as sources of inadvertent amusement when we were tired of disliking them. We wondered all the time why old singers could not sing like the present day singers.

“Puraani Filmon Ke Geet” on radio ceylon was the one programme that I disliked the most. The only silver lining of this programme for me was that the end of this programme at 8 AM heralded the beginning of “Aap hi Ke Geet” programme, where new songs were played on the farmaish of listeners.

When I look back to those days of late 1960s and early 1970s, I realise that the songs played in “Puraani Filmon ke geet” were mostly from 1940s, which were only about 30 years old at that time. In fact the oldest Hindi movie records (issued in 1934) were less than four decades old at that time.

In comparison, the songs that were new songs for me those days are now four decades old ! That makes the “new” songs of my growing up days as old now as the old songs of those days !

When I think that way, then I must say that I am highly impressed with present day younsters who like songs that are five to six decades before their time.

If I disliked songs before my time when I was a teenager then how do I look at songs that are after my time ? Well, I lost track of Hindi movies and its songs from 1980s onwards. So the era after 1980s form my blackout phase as far as my music awareness of this period is concerned.

Now thanks to the lyrics contributors of this blog, I am becoming aware of songs after my time. In this blog, I often talk about five or six decades old songs and mention that I heard themm for the first time. Here is a song from 2000. I heard this song for the first time only just recently.:) And it took a great deal of persuation from the contributor of this song to make me listen to it. 🙂

I am thankful to Peevesie, the youngest contributor of this blog, who sent me the lyrics of this song from “Refugee” (2000). I had heard of this movie and I was aware that it was the debut movie of two star kids, namely Abhishek Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor, but that is all I knew (or cared for) at that time. Now that I have heard this song forthe first time, I find it quite a hummable and likeable song. This song is sung by Alka Yagnik and Sonu Malik. Jawed Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anu Malik. This song is picturised on Kareena Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan.

Here is this song from “Refugee” (2000) which has grown up on me in the last few hours that I have heard this song.

I share your feelings about songs. Songs from 70s seem like ‘current’ songs to me. ‘Old songs’ belong to 60s and before. I do like some of the current songs, esp those with a sufiana touch, but most times find them cacophonic and not worth a listen.

The songs of Refugee were beautifully written and the music was soft and pleasing. I love Sonu Nigam’s voice, so that helps as well.

Atulji

Excellent post Atulji, very good song and Thank you Peevesie ji for the lyrics.

I think J.P.Dutta picturised this song very beautifully.Most of his films shows desert locations very beautifully and all his films have good music.

I want to recommend J.P.Dutta`s Gulami and Yateem to you Atulji. Please give these 2 movies, a try. I hope you will like these movies.

You are right ,this song grows slowly on listeners.

One small correction, Sonu Mallik should be Sonu Nigam in the

Starting of the song features old timer Padmini Kapila as mother figure.

hi atulji
And to think that Anu Malik is thought to be copy cat of western songs leader of Cacophony sounds etc. but if one thinks of many Anu Malik songs they r extremely melodious & raga based like the songs of 50s or 60s. & he reserves some of his best melodies for J.P.Dutta. think of “Border” “LOC Kargil” etc. & u will understand what i am referring to.
