Jadoo teri nazar – Darr (1993)

Film: Darr (1993)
Music: Shiv-Hari
Lyrics: Anand Bakshi
Singer: Udit Narayan

Udit Narayan is at his vocal best in this Shiv-Hari album – they are none other than the santoor maestro Shiv Kumar Sharma and renowned flautist Hariprasad Chaurasia! The track is so energetic, expressive, catchy and hummable that you’ll have ‘tu hai meri Kiran’ ringing in your ears and lips for some time. The use of guitar in the prelude and interludes – with a 2-octave play – is exemplary. Simplicity is the key for this number …in tune, Anand Bakshi’s words, instrumentation and vocals!

These 2 instrumentalists par excellence got together for a few film scores starting Silsila (1981) and ended with this one in 1993…mainly Yash Chopra films! Perhaps one of the reasons why one of the instruments – the guitar – is so prominent and effective in this number. Of the other tracks in the movie, I really like the Udit Narayan and Lata Mangeshkar sung Tu mere saamne (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-klQkGJEsIg)
