Film: Barsaat (1995)
Singer: Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik
Nadeem-Shravan sprang a surprise with this album and this track stood out given its focus on melody, the standalone violin/guitar pieces, the whistle, the beat, the lyrics and the vocals – all these are to die for! The purity, serenity and romance in Sameer’s words and NS’ composition are effectively conveyed by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik.
With its features, methinks they somewhat entered the Anu-Malik-melody-lane of the 90s. Throughout their illustrious career, Nadeem-Shravan were not known for ‘softness in romance’ via the use of so-called ‘modern’ instruments and focus on melody! This was therefore a bolt from the blue for the listeners…perhaps due to the fact that it was Bobby Deol and Twinkle Khanna’s debut at stake in a Rajkumar Santoshi directed love story. I also very much like the other romantic number from this movie – Teri adaaon pe marta hoon; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdwrAl8zsYQ – so much so that I used to play both of these one after the other repeatedly!
