The sweetest musical
17 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie many many times and will do so in future. Naushad, in my books, was the greatest composer of Hindi film Sangeet (runners up being C. Ramchandra and Shankar Jaikishan).To bring out the innermost emotions of a Raaga into a 3 or 4 minute song is the accomplishment of a genius. If you want a child to learn Raagdari, just let him listen and learn to play these songs. Then you don't have to force him to learn music. By the way, one of the greatest Bhajans "Man Tarapat Hari Darashan Ko Aaj" shows that the only religion of the artists (song writer Shakeel Badayuni, composer Naushad, singer Mohamad Rafi) is their art.
