This song won the Filmfare award for Best female playback singer of 2008, for Shreya Ghoshal. Shreya Ghoshal is one find of the decade as far as female playback singers are concerned. She is here there everywhere, in all films. She has dominated the female playback scene for some years now. With Lata and Asha both almost out of contention and singing few songs, there was a gap which is filled somewhat first by Alka Yagnik in the 90’s and than by Shreya Ghoshal. I especially like her solo songs. Of course, nobody can quite dominate a field like Lata and Asha did for 40 odd years. The field is wide open now and with more competetion from all around. But Shreya Ghoshal is most talented of the lot and sounds good in all types of songs.

Since ‘chaudhvin ka chaand ho ya aaftaab ho’ from the film ‘ Chaudhvin ka chaand ‘, no one had really attempted to recreate the magic of it. The reason is obvious that it is a tough act to follow. The beauty of that song in black n white is not comparable to anything.

The quest for songs picturized in the desert location, brings me back to this movie ‘Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam’ (1999).

The name is a handful, so its is shortened to HDDCS. This song is named mostly as ‘man mohini teri adaa’. As I typed the lyrics, no where are the these lines repeated, so that line is not a mukhdaa. I thought it better to name it by first line.

‘Shirin Farhad’ (1956), is a legendary love story situated in the ancient Persia. Madhu Bala and Pradeep kumar played the title roles. I see Ameeta is also playing a role in the film, even has a song, which is not posted. Total 5 songs from this movie are already posted here.

Desert song no. 7, is a Mubarak Begum solo from ‘Baghdad ka jaadu’ (1956). This is the first song from this film to be posted in the blog. Actually I saw at least three songs from this film, including the theme/caravan song by Mohammed Rafi and a delightful duet by Mubarak Begum and Khurshid Bawra. I was able to recognize a single person featuring in those song. Than I got a brainstorm and googled the film. And yes I found all there is to know about it here.

Looking for old songs picturized in the desert, I was about to give up, and thought of switching to ‘dessert’ songs instead. 🙂 I have some more newer desert songs in my list, which I absolutely will discuss, having only explored the desert of Rajashtan, bhuj etc. What with Egypt and even Arizona dersert featuring in some songs, there is a lot still left to be covered. But listening to all those new songs, I got a little bored. Today I was thinking of taking a break from this series and discussing some thing else. That was when I found this Lata-Rafi duet from film “Sehra- 1963′. And ‘ sone pe suhaaga ‘ I found a Rafi solo too , not yet discussed in the blog, picturized in the desert. And hero is singing this song while performing acrobatics riding a Camel, no less. So this is what I call a desert-cum-dessert song. 🙂
