Sonu Niigaam's recent songs in bollywood films.

Sonu Niigaam’s recent songs in bollywood films.

Sonu Niigaam had shown his potential to sing any type of songs in the last few years. He is an indispensable asset of bollywood films and his range starting from classical songs to westernized songs and light romantic songs had created a sensation for the new generation.

He showed his patriotic image in the songs sung in the film Border including songs like “sandese ate hai” and Refugee like “mere humsafar”, “panchi nadiya”, etc. He moved the listeners out of their seats with the song “pal pal” from the film Lage Raho Munnabhai and “no entry” from the film No Entry.

His song “aaj ki raat” sung in the film Don, for Shahrukh Khan had amazed the viewers, similar to the song “tenu le” and “salaam – e-ishq” for Salman Khan in the film Salaam-e-ishq. He kept his romantic andaaz intact in the song “maria maria” for Salmaan Khan in the film Partner and “mai agar kahoon” for Shahrukh Khan in the film Om Shamti Om.

His album titled “Rafi resurrected” having few of the legendary hits of the evergreen legend of legends and sung by Sonu Nigaam in Birmingham and other cities of UK mesmerized the international audience. His classical album titled “classically mild” showed his depth of classical singing which makes him unparallel if compared with the other bollywood singers of the present age. He had rightly been the role model of young singers like Rahul Vaidya and Imon Chatterji.

His songs in the film Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, including the song “kabhi alvida na kehna” had shown his tragic andaz. He had rocked the audience with the song “nagara nagara” in Punjabi folk andaaz in the film Jab We Met. He also showed his royal andaaz in the song “in lamhon ke damaan” in the film Jodha Akbar, for Hrithik Roshan.

Composers like AR Rehman could experiment a lot in the film Saathiya due to the presence of Sonu Nigaam at this moment other composers like Anu Malik to Shankar Ehsaan Loy and from Pritaam to Rajesh Roshan consider him the leading singer even without doing injustice to the other singers like Shaan, Kunal Ganjawala, Udit Narayan and others. He is only his own competitor and the viewers expect him to explore more and reach out to the audience of other parts of the world.

Sonu Nigam is probably the most talented singer in the last 25 years.He had created a class of his own. His songs ranging from the patriotic ones like "mere humsafar","panchi nadiya", "sandese ate hai", to the romantic ones like "pal pal", "tenu le", "maria maria" show glimpses of the versatility of legendary singers of the 50s, 60s had. It is due to his presence i th film arena that Anu Malik, AR Rehman, Vishal Sekhar, Shankar Ehsaan Loy can experiment so much.

Sonu Nigam had shown very stylish endeavour in pronouncing the lyrics of his songs. It had varied according to the requirements of the films. His intonation of the song "pal pal" in Lage Raho Munna Bhai was different from the song "piyu bole piya bole" in Parineeta, "salaam-e-ishq" in the film Salaam-e-ishq, "maria maria" in Partner, now the songs in Yuvvraaj. He is one of the most gifted singers and the modern composers and highly dependant on him for doing new experiments. It is expected that Vishal Shekhar, Anu Malik, AR Rehman, Shankar Ehsaan Loy should use his range in the best possible manner in films in the years to come.
