#93 Song: Mehfil Me Aaye Woh Aa~j Dhire Se, Taron Buza Do Chirag Dhir.e Se~~ Mehfil Me Aaye, Woh Aye Woh Aye Woh Aye Film: Sitaron Se Age (1958) Music: Sachin Deb Barman Lyrics: Majrooh Sultanpuri Singer: Lata Mangeshkar *ing: ? A soft and sweet Lata Mangeshkar delivers beautiful Majrooh lyrics, really effortlessly; as if she is gently throwing them in the air! But it's not that simple, as I write here. In fact throwing is not a correct word. I ought to have said: she places each and every word with utmost care, after correctly modulating them. She is clearly enjoying the song. For example on approaching "Dhire' in 'Chirag Dhire Se'; she lowers her tone, pauses momentarily at 're' of 'Dhire' and then slowly ascends at 'Se~~~'. In this gentle flow of notes Sachin-Da has mixed very light orchestration - violin, guitar, tabla. The repetition of 'Wo Aye' after mukhada (which in turn is repeated after each stanza) is most effective part. Each antara has three lines. First two is sung at different pitch. It's the third one that brings it back to home. But there is no jerk. It leaves a stamp of a master.
