Madan Mohan – Exotic Music


Madan Mohan is one name among the music composers who probably never got his due.. Woh Bhooli Dastaan lo phir Yaad A gayi.. or Apki Nazaron ne samajha pyaar ke kaabil mujhe or still more popular Lag Ja Gale Ki phir yeh haseen raat ho na ho.. well I could go on but that is not the point.. maybe he could have got more films.. maybe he could have composed more music.. yet what speaks for his greatness that some of his music was used much after his death in the film Veer Zaara.. my personal best would possibly be Talat Mahmood sahab’s Phir Wohi Shaam Wohi Gham Whi Tanhaai hai.. yet here is one music director who gave away some highly lovable songs.. discover for yourself.. I have not restricted to one film one song theory as he often composed more than one great song in the same film – Woh Kaun Thi, Mera Saya and Dustak have shadowed some of his other films.. it is all right.. I wanted to give you the very best of him.. and the collection is dedicated to several friends on facebook who have joined me recently from Kendriya Vidyalaya No. 1 Air Force Station Agra.. the school where I got my first entry into Kendriya Vidyalayas in the year 1969 as a student of fifth standard.. thanks Mathews Mammen, George Mammen, Suresh Menon, Kanchan Singh Bisht, Shrinivas Rao, Ashutosh Bharadwaj, Sudhir Kekre, Prem Menon, Manohar Kandari, Arun Joneja.. and a good lot of others including Uttama, Manideepa and Annie .. I know I might have missed a few names and more would be on the verge of joining me hands at Facebook.. Dheeraj Bose, Harendra Ojha, Anil Bedi and Surjit Singh, Ajay Dogra, Rattan Sabharwal.. sincere thanks to all .. The best thing was that I have discovered Prithvi Raj Bose one of our seniors, a great Volleyball player who I loved as much as another who acted in a skit Panna Dhai – Pinaki Chakrabarti .. and I got to know that all along I had been wrong with the names Amarjeet (Ajit) and Nirmala Bedi.. they are in fact Anil and Madhu Bedi.. I hope the two will forgive me for that.. a picture from Ashutosh Bhardwaj (AB) was also received.. and has been posted at one of the blog entries on KV, AFS Agra..
