na gham ke pyaale, piye jaa piye jaa
in aansuon ko piye jaa... piye jaa
Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Music: Shivram Krishna
Lyrics: Sheven Rizvi
In celebration of the Lady's seventy first birthday today...
This is a brisk, uplifting melody, etched in the same pattern of
effervescence as "aansuon ki chhaaon men bhi hans le...", and delivers a similar
message too. Beautiful vocal artistry in this song - the tune meanders in some
delicate sinusoids with lovely murkis around the curves. Gorgeous rendition from
Lata. There is a subtle, charming pause in the second line, between the "piye
jaa"s, which infuses a sort of urging tone, like "c'mon, piye jaa..."
The song starts off in a slow prelude set against a strumming sitar
palkon hi had se baahar aansoo nikal na aaye
keh de musafiron se manzil pe thehar jaayen
I think SURANG is a V Shantaram film... don't recall who's in it
it does have a lovely set of songs. Two other Lata solos worth mentioning in
this movie are "gehri gehri nadiya men bahi chali jaaun re" and "guzri thi raat
aadhi...". A couple of songs by Manna Dey and a delightful Asha solo "mast
bahaar hai, pyaar hi pyaar hai" make up the soundtrack muster roll. The overall
music is very similar to another soundtrack from the same year - TEEN BATTI
CHAAR RAASTA, also a Shantaram film, and also composed by Shivram Krishna.
