Movie : Saawariya
Song : Saawariya Saawariya Title
Original Singers: Shail Hada
Music : Monty Sharma
Lyrics : Sameer
Sung By : Vishal
I recently came across an article about Monty Sharma and came to know that he did the background score for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movies, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and Black. Although background score is very much a thankless task in Bollywood, I believe it played an equally important role in success of all these movies, especially Black. Saawariya marks the debut of Monty Sharma as a music director.
Music has been always the hallmark of Bhansali's movies and it must have been an unbelievable burden for a virtually debutant music director to take on the task of composing the tracks for such a big film. I was pretty sure he must have done a great job as I found out Monty is a nephew of music maestro Pyarelal Sharma (of Laxmikant - Pyarelal duo).
Till now I knew only one song from this movie - Jabse Tere Naina, which I love and so I decided to listen to all the songs. I started with the title track by Shail Hada and just couldn't get past it ! What a voice and singing ! Bhansali sure has a keen eye for talent and after showcasing Shreya Ghoshal so beautifully in Devdas, here we have yet another singer evidently soaked with talent.
The song kept haunting me for days and finally I found a good karaoke track to record it. Yep struggled a bit on high notes but hope I have managed to do some justice to this wonderful song ! Please listen at your convenience :-)
