Tere Liye Palkon ki Jhaalar Bunu..

Talking about love, romance & music of Pancham, here is another gem of RD.

This is from a movie Harjaee. The movie - a story of a terminally ill patient - starred Randhir Kapoor with Tina Munim. Despite a good melodramatic storyline, the movie was as big a disaster as its hero looked by that time.

Notwithstanding the flop show, its music was scintillating - in line with other movies where Pancham worked with movie's director - Ramesh Behl - one of his closest friends. Their repertoire together include movies like Jawani Deewani, Basera & Kasme Vaade.

Harjaee had three lyricists - Gulshan Bawra, Vitthal Bhai patel & Nida Fazli. Almost each of the song went on to be a chartbuster when the movie was released, and have remained evergreen.

The one I am showcasing now was penned by Nida Fazli, and has a composition which is lilting & subtle. Pancham used Guitar as the key instrument while flute, santoor and windbells provide the supporting structure.

All that was required to make it really ethereal was a voice & rendition which can bring out the care & affection of a woman in love. And here comes in the singer whom Pancham always went to for such songs - Lata Mangeshkar. No wonder, when one hears her singing:

Naya naya sansar hai,
Tu hi mera ghar bar hai
Jaisa rakhe khushi khushi, waise hi main rahu
Aaja Saajna
Tere liye palkon ki jhaalar bunu
Kaliyon sa gajre me bandhe phirun
Dhup lage jaha tujhe chhaya banu
Aaja Saajna
