4700 Post No. : 16398 Movie Count :


Rajesh Roshan, who celebrated his sixthsixth birthday last week (DoB 24 may 1955) had made his debut in Hindi movies as a music director with the ‘1974’ movie ‘Kunwaara Baap’. Thereafter he scored some nice music in his movies in his long career.

One year after his debut, he won the ‘Filmfare Award’ for ‘best music’ for the movie ‘Julie-1975’. He won his second filmfare award twenty-five years later, the movie ‘Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai-2000’.
In between he was nominated for ‘Filmfare Award for Best Music Director’ for the movies ‘Swami-1977’, ‘Des Pardes-1978’, ‘Mr. Natwarlal-1979’, ‘Kaalaa Patthar-1979’, ‘Khoon Bhari Maang-1988’, ‘Karan Arjun-1995’, ‘Papa Kehte Hain-1996’, and ‘Koi Mil Gayaa-2003’.

‘Kaabil-2017’ was the recent movie where he scored the music.

I have already written a post here about the music of Rajesh Roshan and my nostalgic memories about the songs he created, so I will not repeat the same things here.

Today I present presenting a song from the movie ‘Ek Hi Raastaa-1977’. Incidentally this will be the third song in a row from this movie that I will be covering.

‘Ek Hi Raastaa-1977’ was a ‘Uma Cine Films’, Bombay presentation. It was a ‘social-family drama’ movie. It was produced and directed by Mohan Sehgal and its star-cast included Jeetendra, Shabana Azmi, Vinod Mehra, Asha Sachdev, Utpal Dutt, Roohi, Indrani Mukherji, Krishan Dhawan, Jagdeep, Om Shivpuri, Meena Rai, Maruti, C.S. Dubey, Chandrima Bhaduri, Jankidas, Umrani, Mahapatra, Polsan, Pardesi, O.P. Kohli, Master Indrajeet, Satyarani, Viraj Kumar, Bhola, Master Babu and Master Asif.

It had total five songs penned by Verma Malik and music of this film was composed by Rajesh Roshan (assisted by Gyan, Kishore, and Nirmal).

As per the information available, so far, there have been four films made with this title ‘Ek Hi Raasta’ in 1939, 1956, 1977 and 1993.

I would request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

I have not watched this movie so cannot say much about it.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. It is lip synced on screen by Shabana Azmi. A partial video of this song was available when I had initially shared this song. But now only the audio of this song is available.

Lyrics for today’s song are by Verma Malik. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Let us now enjoy today’s song, which when you start humming while listening, may take you to ‘pal bhar mein ye kya ho gayaa’ …. 😊

Rajesh Roshan’s sixty-sixth birthday, please correct in the first paragraph.

The song really does take one to ‘pal bhar mein ye kya hogayaa”’ rendition, in Lata’s voice for Shabana Azmi.
