        Song: Jaate Ho Jao, Hum Bhi Yahaan Yaadon Ke  Sahaare  Ji
                Shikvaa Na Karenge ?????? Ka, ?????? Zabaan Ko Si

        Film:   Khel (1949)
        Music:  Sajjad Hussain
        Lyrics: Saagar Nizami
        Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
        *ing:   Dev Anand, ?

I like Sajjad's tunes. But like Pt. Husnalal  Bhagatram,  I  find
his repetitive at times. But irrespective of that his tunes carry
a distinct signature and no one can fail to recognise  that.  His
creativity   lingers  from  each  every  verse.   His  choice  of
instruments, time to play them, mixing  of  them,  pauses  -  all
these  are  well  thought  off.  He  doesn't  leave  his listener
complaining!  This  song  is  in  all   probability   his   first
association  with  Lata.  One  can  easily judge this hearing her
voice. Sajjad's tune  -  as  it's  always  the  case  -  here  is
engaging, and so is Lata's heart stealing rendering.

Note: I am on vacation till 28th December
