Happy birthday to Rajesh Roshan.

Happy birthday to Rajesh Roshan.

The viewers of bollywood films wish happy birthday to Rajesh Roshan on 24th May, 2009. He being the son of legendary composer Roshan, was expected to compose unique songs. His father Roshan was considered one of the greatest composers of all times with his classic tunes in films like Bahu Begum, Barsaat Ki Raat, Aarti, Bheegi Raat, Dil Hi To Hai, Taj Mahal, etc.

When Rajesh Roshan joined bollywood in mid-70s, music lost part of their significance. The main reason was that it was the age of anti-establishment films where Amitabh Bacchan,Vinod Khanna, Shatrughun Sinha, Dharmender, and others raised their voices against the evil practices existing in different sectors in India. Even then Rajesh Roshan’s compositions in films like Julie, with the title song “Julie” sung by Kishore Kumar, and Yaarana, with the song “chu kar meri manko” sung by KK, had attracted the attention of the viewers.

From the time his brother Rakesh Roshan turned into producer and director, Rajesh Roshan gave his best music in those films. His music in the film Karan Arjun with Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan became super hit. Some popular songs included “jaati hoon mai”, “o bandhan do”, “gup chup gup chup”, etc.

Rajesh Roshan and Rakesh Roshan combination created history with Hrithik Roshan’s first film Kahona Pyar Hai. All the songs in the film “kahona pyar hai”, “pyar ki kasti me”, “haseeno ki mehfil”, etc., stormed bollywood. In that year the filmfare awards in most of the categories were won by Hrithik Roshan, Rakesh Roshan, Rajesh Roshan. The brilliant locations of New Zealand added hue and colour in the musical blockbuster.

From that time whenever Rajesh Roshan, Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan, worked together to produced gold. The music of Koi Mil Gaya was super hit with songs like “koi mil gaya”. The locations of Australia and the lips of Preity Zinta complimented the powerful performance of Hrithik Roshan in the film.

The same combination provided brilliant songs in the film Krissh. Again the music of Rajesh Roshan was liked by the viewers with songs like “dil na diya”, “chori chori chupke chupke”. In this film Priyanka Chopra was as elegant as Hrithik Roshan.

Hrithik Roshan has a long way to go. So both Rajesh Roshan and Rakesh Roshan are expected to produce gems in upcoming projects involving all three of the them in future.
