Sunil Dutt songs.
Sunil Dutt songs.
Sunil Dutt had acted in dignified roles all along his career. One of the reasons for the success of his films include the quality music that existed in his films. In Bimal Roy’s Sujata, the song “jalte hai jiske liye” sung by Talat Mehmood and picturised on Sunil Dutt became a landmark hit.
The songs in his film Mera Saya opposite Sadhna, became superhits. Madanmohan composed the songs for the film. Lata’s song “tu jaha jaha chalega” and Rafi’s song “aapke pehlu me akar”, require special mention. The songs in Sunil Dutt’s film Ghazal were outstanding by every musical standard. Madanmohan’s composition “rang aur noor ki baraat”, picturised on Sunil Dutt became everlasting hit.
The film Chirag, is known for its strong storyline and melodious music. The performance of Sunil Dutt and Asha Parekh were complimented by powerful singing by Rafi and Lata. The song “teri aankho ke siva duniya me rakha kya hai” had not lost its appeal even today.
Even the songs sung by Mukesh and picturised on Sunil Dutt became superhits. Songs like “sawan ka mahina” composed by Laxmikant Pyarellal and sung by Sunil Dutt had a flavour of its own and its swayed the audience with the musical wave. Nutan performed equally well opposite Sunil Dutt and gave adequate lips in Lata’s version of the same song.
The other films of Sunil Dutt which were rich in music include Mother India, where Naushad composed the legendary songs, Zakhmee, etc. Rafi’s song “chand jane kaha kho gaya” picturised on Sunil Dutt was equally successful in the early 60s.
In the late 70s, Sunil Dutt acted in mainly action films which were not that dependant on music. The films and the songs of Sunil Dutt should be preserved for the everlasting treasure of rich music.
