Today 6th January 2017 is the thirtieth death anniversary of Composer Jaidev.

We pay our tributes to him, and on this occasion we enjoy a ‘story-telling’ song from the 1976 movie “Laila Majnu”. Jaidev shared the music credits for this movie with Composer Madan Mohan who left us when the movie must be on its completion work since it was released in the next year 1976.

CREDIBILITY is certainly a valuable virtue and a treasure to possess. Our parents enjoy a high credibility quotient with us. Anything told by them was accepted without a doubt or a question.(This is, of course, in olden days). We respect people with credibility. Books like Dictionaries and Encyclopedias carry the highest credibility. Does anyone question the meaning of words in a Dictionary ? Certainly not ! Likewise Encyclopaedias too give credible information.

As per IMDb site, the earliest film with the title ‘Laila Majnu’ was released in 1922 followed by another film with the same title in 1927. After the advent of talkies, ‘Laila Majnu’ was released in 1931 (I & II), 1945, 1953 and 1976. There were films with the title ‘Laila Majnu’ made in Telugu and Malayalam as well which were released in 1949 and 1962 respectively. Today I am presenting a song in the qawwali format from the film LAILA MAJNU (1945). An abridged version of the film with lots of cuts is available on YT.

I am not really qualified to talk at length about Mohammed Rafi. I was lucky to be growing up during the 60s when the best of our music was all around me. Rafi was here, there and everywhere. He ruled the airwaves.

Here is another solo of Rafi Sahab from the film “Laila Majnu” (1976). This is a ghazal picturized as a doli song with Majnu following Laila’s doli in the desert and singing this song , imploring Laila to take with her, the prayers of the one who has been left desolate in her love. This is among the last few compositions of Madan Mohan. Lyricist is Saahir Ludhianvi. Master of ghazals as Madan Mohan is known as, this is a brilliant creation of all three legends. A teetotaler simpleton, a cynical intellectual and a broken genuis alcoholic. A strange combination if there were any.

Here is another song from the film “Laila Majnu”. This is also a Lata-Rafi duet, composed by Madan Mohan. Lyrcist is Saahir Ludhianvi. This must be the most popular song from the film. And for once the songs composed by Madan Mohan were more to the tastes of the masses rather than the classes. This may have been in accordance with the theme and setting of the film, this being a period film, if not historical. Even if this is the sixth song to appear in the blog, the songs of the film are not yet done. There are three more songs that remain to be discussed.

There are qawwali’s and than there are some qawwali’s. Or should I say there are qawwalis and than there are some filmi qawwalis by Roshan. To begin with I am not a very big fan or a knowledgeable person to talk about qawwali, hence this flippancy 😉 .
