Rafi Sahab with Naushad and Shakeel

The Hindi Film Industry has produced many stalwart lyricists / poets and those lyricists gave their best output, (meaningful and soulful) lyrics to the compositions of the well known music directors. The list of lyricists is very long, but to cut short, a few got name, fame and popularity at the same time.  In the gamut of filmy poets/lyricists I could remember three famous poets / lyricists of Hindi Film Music made their work to speak for ages – Shakeel Badayuni, Sahir Ludhianvi and Majrooh Sultanpuri.  I would like to focus on the association of Shakeel Badayuni with Rafi Saab where the eternal singer had rendered the most famous, lovable and easy to hum of those songs written by Shakeel Badayuni which had achieved enormous popularity in yesteryears. Shakeel Badayuni was elder to both Naushad Saab and Rafi Saab, three and eight years respectively. (more…)

One of Mohammed Rafi’s famous songs is “Subah Na Aayi” from the movie, “Cha Cha Cha” which was released in 1964. It had a now forgotten hero, called Chandrashekhar and Helen was the heroine of this movie. Lyrics were written by Neeraj and music was given by Iqbal Qureshi.

The song conveys the greatness of love, and that love is superior to all other material things. The Hero has set out in search of his true love. He remembers her every second and every minute of the day. Without her memory his day is incomplete and he remains unaware of other happenings. He is so madly in love; his happiness is incomplete without her as well as his sadness has no meaning without her. If only she belongs to him and they get united in love, he will be the happiest man in the world. The words of this song talk about the depth of the love of the hero. They have great meaning hidden in them. (more…)
