Lyricist: Kaifi Irfani
MD: Roshan (Roshan Lal Nagrath)
Original Singer: Mukesh

This song had been circulating in my head for several days, so I started exploring and realized Roshan also was a genius who gave us many memorable numbers. I have decided to celebrate Roshan’s work with three songs, and I stare with 1st song from Malhar an old movie released in 1951. This film has yet another significance, Mukesh produced this as his 1st film under the banner of Darling Films, his second film was “Anurag” which was released in 1956.

Malhar songs were made in early 50’s with not as much advanced orchestration and / or technology but were very melodious, led by the remarkable “Bade Armaanon Se Rakha Hai Sanam Teri Qasam, Pyaar Ki Duniyaa Mein Yeh Pehlaa Qadam” is a gem. Roshan was undoubtedly helped by the lyricists, debutant Indeevar and Kaif-Irfani who penned sheer poetry, including “Dil Tujhe diya tha Rakhne ko, Tune Dil ko Jala ke Rakh Kiya” and “Tara Toote Duniya Dekhe”. Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh, needless to mention, made them immortal in their voice.

Music score was composed by Roshan, grandfather of Hrithik Roshan, who had made his debut just a year earlier, in 1950. Roshan Lal Nagrath (14 July 1917 – 16 November 1967), better known by his first name Roshan, was an Indian esraj (string instrument also known as Dilrubaa) player and music director. He was the father of the actor and film director Rakesh Roshan and music director Rajesh Roshan and paternal grandfather of Hrithik Roshan. Roshan was born in Gujranwala, Punjab, British India which part of Punjab in Pakistan now.

In 1948, Roshan came to Mumbai to find work as a Hindi film music director and became assistant of music composer Khawaja Khurshid Anwar in film “Singaar” (1949). He somewhat struggled until he met the then famous producer-director Kidar Sharma, who gave him the job of composing for his film “Neki aur Badi” (1949). While it was a flop, Kidar Sharma gave him another chance in his next film. Roshan emerged as a player on the Hindi film music scene with “Baawre Nain” (1950) which became a big musical hit.
