Hit songs of Salman Khan’s films over the last few years.
Salman Khan had always got good music, all along his career. That was one of the reason why his films did well in the box –office during the last 20 years. In fact the music of his first successful film Maine Pyar Kiya had the greatest impact on the audience than other factors in the late 80s.
But with the change of period and change of composers music also took a turn during the last 10 years. Composers with whom Salman Khan was initially associated like Nadeem Shravan, Jatin Lalit are replaced by the successful composers of the present age including AR Rehman, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Vishal Shekhar, Anu Malik. Even the present groups of singers including Sonu Nigam, Kunal Ganjawala, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chouhan, etc., had changed the singing trend in bollywood films.
Inspite of all these factors taken together Salman Khan is still blessed with hit songs. His songs in the film Janeman, composed by Anu Malik and sung mainly by Sonu Nigam became super hit. Similarly Sonu Nigam’s songs in the film Salaam-e-ishq, including “salaam-e-ishq”, “tenu le” stormed bollywood audience with the catchy orchestration and picturisation.
Even the songs in the film Partner, including “do you want a partner”, “maria maria”, “you are my love” all were hits and the songs in fact contributed for the success of the film, if all the factors were taken together. Also the songs in the film Mujhse Shaadi Karoge, also became big hits. The notable songs included “jeene ke hai char din”, “mujhse shaadi karoge”, etc. The lips of Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar balanced the screen presence of Priyanka Chopra in the film.
Also the music of the film Yuvraaj, has promise. It is the first time that Subhash Ghai, Gulzar and AR Rehman had worked together. The music that had been reflected in the promos had impressed the viewers even before the seeing the film as it is still awaiting release. Viewers are curious about the performance of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the film.
All the success of the music of Salman’s recent films follows the hit songs that he got in other films in the past. All the songs in the film Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya were hits including “just chill chill” and “laga laga laga re”.
The music of his film Khamoshi, in fact created history with songs like “jane kya”, “aaj mai upar”, etc. He had worked with various singers, producers, lyricists, composers, directors and the change in the banners or change of the composer did not affect the music in his films.
If even any three of his films of the 90s are taken up, it will be found that all of them had melodious music like Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, Hum Saath Saath Hai, Saajan, etc. The viewers and the audience expect Salman Khan to continue to give impressive lips in the songs of his films and fulfil the commitment of giving good music to his admirers in future.
