Today (16 novermber 2016) is the 49th death anniversary of Roshan (14 july 1917- 16 november 1967). He had died at the age of just 50 when he was at the zenith of his career. His untimely death, and also the untimely death of several other stalwards of HFM within a few years (Shailendra, Shakeel Badayuni, Jaikishan etc) marked the beginning of the end of the golden era of HFM.

Roshan had made his debut as a music director with “Neki Aur Badi”(1949). The movie had flopped and Roshan himself was so disappointed that he entertained thoughts of committing suicide. Kidar Sharma, his mentor gave him another assignment namely “Baawre Nain” (1951). This movie was a box office success and its music was well received and that gave Roshan a foothold in the industry. He established himself in the industry and enriched HFM with some memorable compositions.

Roshan – a name that spells a purist, a name that is acknowledged as a creator of master melodies. The career of an artist in the film industry is measured by the films one is associated with. In a short career of 19 years, this giant amongst music directors accomplished 56 films. The filmography is as impressive as can be – Baawre Nain (1950), Humlog and Malhaar (1951), Anhonee, Naubahaaar and Malhaar in 1952, Maalkin, Aagosh and Maashooqa in 1953, Chandni Chowk and Jashan in 1955, Agra Road and Coffee House in 1957, Aji Bas Shukriya in 1958, CID Girl and Heera Moti in 1959, and then on to sixties with Barsaat Ki Raat, Baabar, Aarti, Surat Aur Seerat, Wallaah Kya Baat Hai, Dil Hi To Hai, Taj Mahal, Chitralekha, Bheegi Raat, Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal, Devar, Mamta, Bahu Begum and Anokhi Raat. In this sampler list, each film represents a treasure of melodies that would be the envy of other music directors. With this post, we are celebrating the 200th song of this illustrious melody maker to be represented on this blog.

Roshan, a name that immediately brings to mind the iconic qawwalis of ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960), or the perennial sentimental favorite “Caarvaan Guzar Gayaa, Gubaar Dekhte Rahey” from the film ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ (1965). A master musician who would blend the classical and the folk with graceful ease, Roshan had his training under famous masters such as Ustad Allauddin Khan and Ustad Bundu Khan (saarangi king). After working with All India Radio in Delhi for about a decade, he moved to Bombay in 1948 in search of a career as a music director in films. He got introduced to Kidar Sharma, who was so impressed by his musical acumen that he actually made some changes to his next production. Plans were underway for the film ‘Neki Aur Badi’, and Snehal Bhatkar was already assigned the music direction responsibility. After meeting with Roshan, Kidar Sharma had a talk with Snehal Bhatkar, who agreed to let Roshan handle the music department. That is how the debut break came Roshan’s way.
