        Song: Jis Din Se Mile Hum Tum, Nayaa Din Laage, Nayi Raat
                Naya Naya Laage Aalam~~~ ...

        Film:   Lalkaar (1956)
        Music:  Sanmukhbabu (Upadhyay)
        Lyrics: Pt. Bharat Vyas
        Singer: Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar
        *ing:   ?

Repetition of partial lines beginning with 'Naya' as in 'Naya Din
Lage  Re,  Nayi  Raat Laage Re, ...' is hallmark of this song. It
sounds very nice. After every phrase (towards the end of antara),
that's  say 'Naya Gagan Laage' singer pauses and only one note of
sitar is played. From there singer goes further to next  phrases,
the one that are followed by sole sitar note, are just rhymed. To
come to 'sum' the last word of antara ending in '.m' as in  Aalam
is sung with nice longer than usual humming on '.m'. That creates
lovely effect. Overall songs  appears  simple  but  it's  a  very
creative  mellow  tuning.  A  kind of song that demands something
extra from a singer and doesn't really on orchestration  much  to
emerge  winner.  And when have two singers enjoying finest rappot
with each other, with sweet voices, song naturally turns  out  to
be real pleasure to listen.
