Naushad: Andaz (1949/1971)

I liked, Andaz, the movie (mostly because the cast comprises of the 3 greatest hindi actors of all time, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor and Nargis, all in one film) but the music not so much. Frankly, I was disappointed. Usually Naushad delivers, but sadly not this time.

The songs aren't worth mentioning one at a time. The album in it's entirety is boring and feels flat. The only two songs that are acceptable, are the first and the last. ''Jhoom Jhoom Ke Nacho Aaj'' is a classic, then the last one and my favorite is ''Dar Na Mohabbat Karle''. Is it just me or I can't hear any piano, yet in the film (young and skinny) Dilip Kumar is playing that instrument. Ah whatever, I don't care because this is a great Shamshad Begum and Lata duet. I love it when they sing together.


Side 1
1. Mukesh: Jhoom Jhoom Ke Nacho Aaj
2. Mukesh: Tu Kahe Agar
3. Mukesh: Toote Na Dil Toote Na
4. Lata Mangeshkar: Tod Diya Dil Mera
5. Lata Mangeshkar: Koi Mere Dil Men

Side 2
6. Lata Mangeshkar: Uthaye Ja Umke Sitam
7. Lata Mangeshkar & Mohd. Rafi: Yun To Apas Men Bigadte
8. Mukesh: Hum Aaj Kahin Dil Kho Baithe
9. Lata Mangeshkar & Chorus: Meri Ladli
10. Lata Mangeshkar & Shamshad Begum: Dar Na Mohabbat Karle

Lyrics: Majrooh

Bonjour Stella,

je ne connais qu'une musique parmi celles dont tu parles, c'est celle-ci. Je la trouve pas si mauvaise, mais il faut dire que je n'y connais pas grand chose. Mon amour pour ce film m'influence peut-être aussi un peu.
Le fait que Dilip Kumar remplace un orchestre entier (sans piano) seul devant son piano m'a fait sourire.
Parmi les vieux films hindis, mes musiques préférées sont celles de Shree 420, Aa Gale Lag Ja et Karz, ainsi que la chanson titre de Kabhi Kabhie.

This movie will be remembered forever just for the pairing of the 3 stars. I enjoyed the movie and it does have 2 of my favorite Mukesh songs - Jhoom Jhoom Ke & Toote Na Dil.

If Naushad was the musical personality who had nurtured the talent of Rafi, from the beginning, then he is the same person who had given immortal tunes to Lata considering her melodious voice. Lata had a tragic appeal in the song “bhool gaye sawariya” from Baiju Bawra, composed by Naushad in 1953.
