Why Demise Of Composer Raam-Laxman Is A Huge Loss To Bollywood?

A few days back, we heard that Vijay Patil or Laxman of the popular Raam-Laxman composer duo has passed away at the age of 78, due to a sudden cardiac arrest.

We were disheartened, and the entire Bollywood fraternity mourned the loss of a musical gem who continued to compose music even after the demise of his partner Surendra Hindre.

Raam-laxman’s musical journey began with Vijay’s orchestral venture. He was an expert at playing the accordion and named his orchestra “Amar”, after his son’s name. 

Who Brought Raam and Laxman Together?

Popular comedian, Dada Kondke was so impressed by his orchestra, that he asked him to make music for the popular 1975 Marathi comedy, “Pandu Hawaldar”.

He composed it along with his friend Raam, and it became a super-duper hit. This established their lifelong relationship with Kondke, who lovingly named the duo Raam-Laxman.

Sultana, Sultana Mera Naam Hain Sultana (1979)

Sultana Sultana Mera Naam Hain Sultana Song Gaana Pehchaana

Music: Raam- Laxman

Lyrics: Ravindra Rawal

Singer: Usha Mangeshkar

Movie: Taraana

Taraana left a long-lasting impression on Bollywood lovers because of its music. This song sounds like something straight out of an Arabian Nights tale. The tune also has nomadic undertones. Raam-Laxman or Vijay Patil Ji considered Usha Mangeshkar to be his favourite singer. Her voice texture and singing style have a different kind of beauty. Ravindra Rawal has painted a beautiful story about a nomad girl with his soul-stirring lyrics. Watch the video to enjoy the song.

Didi Tera Devar Deewana (1989)

Music: Raam Laxman

Lyrics: Dev Kohli

Singers: Lata Mangeshkar, S P Balasubrahmanyam

Movie: Hum Aapke Hain Koun

Another family dhamaka number composed by Raam-Laxman and sung by Lata Mangeshkar, SP Balasubramanyam.

“Didi Tera Devar Deewana” is a song that remains at the tip of every Indian’s tongue. The songs and the film were so well received that Hum Aapke Hain Koun turned out to be the highest-grossing Indian film of the 1990s and the maximum earning Indian film at that time.

This track was inspired by an Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan song called Saare Nabian. The song remained at the top of the charts for more than a year.

Blockbuster India described the movie as the “Biggest Blockbuster of the Modern Era”. Even the Telugu version called Premalayam ran for more than 200 days. The track is all about a big family party where the boys and the girls get into different groups to have fun and tease each other.

Dil Deewana (1989)

Dil Deewana Song Gaana Pehchaana

Music: Raam-Laxman

Lyrics: Dev Kohli

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar

Movie: Maine Pyar Kiya

Ah, what a song! This came along in Salman Khan, Bhagyashree and Sooraj Barjatya’s life when they were still in the struggling phase and turned them into the most sought after stars. Raam-Laxman’s super successful compositions played the biggest role in helping Sooraj Barjatya turn the movie into a massive hit.

These movies would stay in the theatres for more than 150 weeks, which is unbelievable now. It was a big break for Dev Kohli after his first film and Lata Mangeshkar rocked with her singing.

Sun Beliya Shukriya Meherbani (1991)

Music: Raam-Laxman

Lyrics: Dilip Tahir

Singer: S.P Balasubramaniam, Lata Mangeshkar

Movie: 100 Days

Many people have heard this number again and again but they might not be aware of who wrote it, composed it or sang it. Lata Mangeshkar and S.P Balasubramaniam did

complete justice to the relatable music by Raam-Lakshman.

Jackie Shroff and Madhuri Dixit’s chemistry took a different turn along with this beautiful number in the thrilling supernatural cinema. The combination of stringed instruments, wind instruments, tabla and all create a versatile rhythm that you won’t be able to stop listening to.

Pehla Pehla Pyar Hai (1994)

Music: Raam-Laxman

Lyrics: Dev Kohli

Singer: S.P Balasubramaniam

Movie: Hum Aapke Hain Koun

“Pehla Pehla Pyar Hai” always has our heart with it. It’s one of the most well-loved songs of the 21st century. This song was a favourite wedding number. The songs and the games from Hum Aapke Hain Koun were so well received by the Indian audience that no wedding would be complete without them. Lata Mangeshkar sang 11 of the songs out of 15.

The winner of 5 Filmfare awards, Hum Aapke Hain Koun became a part of our being with amazing melodies like Pehla Pehla Pyar written beautifully by Dehradun based Dev Kohli, composed by the most talented Raam-Laxman and sung by S.P Balasubramaniam.

Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999)

Hum Saath Saath Hain Title Song

Source: https://cutt.ly/9nsyP0F

Music: Raam Laxman

Lyrics: Dev Kohli

Singer: Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Hariharan, Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan, Anuradha Paudwal

Movie: Hum Saath Saath Hain

Raam-Laxman has always been grateful to Tarachand Barjatya for giving them the scope to shine in Hindi films. Laxman or Vijay Patil says that Rajshri Banner brought all the luck in their lives. Rajshri movies are completely about family, love and laughter without any villains or vamps. Sooraj Barjatya claims to make his films based on the values that he has grown up with or seen around him in his Marwari family.

Kavita Krishnamurthy, Kumar Sanu, Hariharan, Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan and Anuradha Paudwal make the Mohnish-Tabu, Salman-Sonali and Saif-Karishma pair shine on screen with their spectacular matching attires. We just can’t get over this title track from our childhood even after so many years.

Maiyya Yashoda (1999)

Maiyya Yashoda Song Gaana Pehchaana

Source: https://cutt.ly/ynsyGU9

Music: Raam-Laxman

Lyrics: Kiran R

Singers: Alka Yagnik, Anuradha Paudwal

Movie: Hum Saath Saath Hain

Maiyya Yashoda is a priceless gem from the end of the 20th century composed by Raam-Laxman. These were the last of the biggest hits before the 21st century began and the meaning of hit music changed altogether.

Anuradha Paudwal was already the guru of devotional music and with the help of Alka Yagnik, she sang this memorable melody penned down by Kiran R which still makes us nostalgic and reminds us of those old days when family gatherings had a different flavour.

Karishma Kapoor, Sonali Bendre and Tabu have been picturised as Radha. Saif Ali Khan, Salman Khan and Mohnish Bahl are the naughty Krishna’s, whereas Reema Lagoo is shown as Maiyya Yashoda.

Ye To Sach Hai Ki Bhagwan Hain (1999)

Music: Raam-Laxman

Lyrics: Ravindra Rawal

Singers: Hariharan, Pratima Rao, Ghanshyam Vaswani, Santosh Tiwari, Ravinder Rawal

Movie: Hum Saath Saath Hain

All songs from Hum Saath Saath Hain were composed by Raam-Laxman and surprisingly the audience showered a lot of love and respect on each of the songs. Every song is a gem on its own. A different set of instruments have been used for each of them.

“Ye To Sach Hai Ki Bhagwan Hain” is a group song sung by many different artists. It is all about God coming into our lives in the form of parents. The family set-up for the song is a typical Sooraj Barjatya one.

What Raam-Laxman’s Dhamakedaar Music Means To Bollywood Music Lovers?

Raam-Lakshman composed songs for films that provided the most wholesome entertainment. The Basuri and Accordion duo made music from their heart that listeners could easily connect to. Even though Raam or Surendra of the duo could not live to watch the success of Agent Vinod released in 1977, Laxman did not want to stop making music or change the name of their duo even after his partner’s demise. His contribution to Music has been engraved on the golden pages of Bollywood forever. Whatever he made left a lasting impact and is here to stay.

Can You Score A 10/10 In This Amit Trivedi Quiz?

In times like these when creativity has taken a toll in the Bollywood Music Industry, composers like Amit Trivedi are hard to find. He is a pure representation of passion, dedication, innovation and creativity despite being lured by producers and labels into creating remixes.

His love for making music is greater than money, fame or quick success, so he does not believe in remixes or copying music that has already been done and dusted with.

He is like a whiff of fresh air in the otherwise mundane music scenario.

His rise to prominence came with Dev.D, but even his first film “Aamir” got him showered with a lot of love and respect. Dev. D became a hit particularly because of the songs. It was the first time in the history of Bollywood that the songs of a film helped it become a blockbuster hit.

How Amit Gets His Musical Inspirations In The Middle Of The Night?

Amit Trivedi With Anurag Kashyap

Source: https://bit.ly/3fdIxSy

Amit Trivedi confesses that musical inspirations come to him even in the midnight around 3am, 4am and there are times when he’s just left clueless and is not able to create anything. There is no specific place or time for an idea or inspiration to come to mind.

A composer needs to get a good idea about the script of the film, the situation and all to create the best music.

Amit is not just a renowned Bollywood Music composer, but he has started working on his independent label called “ATAzaad” as well.

Did you know that before coming into the Bollywood world and getting noticed by Anurag Kashyap, he worked for a long time creating advertisement jingles?

His biggest inspiration is A.R Rahman, whom he considers to be the God of Music. As a child, he was very naughty and didn’t do well in school, so he literally got expelled from his history class for a year. Now, he feels that all his naughtiness has shifted towards his music.

Vishal-Shekhar Create A Sensation With The Student Of The Year 2 Songs

Album Info


Music: Vishal-Shekhar
Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan, Vayu, Kumaar
Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Payal Dev, Kishore Kumar, Dev Negi, Neha Kakkar, Shekhar Ravjiani, Sanam Puri, Neeti Mohan

Did you absolutely love “Student Of The Year 1”? That movie made our hearts skip a beat or two, but what about the second part starring Tiger Shroff, Ananya Pandey and Tara Sutaria? Vishal-Shekhar has created a phenomenal playlist for this film. The super-cool, breezy film portraying the vivaciousness of college life has the most catchy soundtrack along with a few remakes.

Let’s enjoy the GaanaPehchaana Review below..

The Jawaani Song

The Jawaani Song Student Of The Year 2

“Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” is by far the top-rated and the most loved track in the “SOTY 2” album. The original music composition has been retained. Most of the lyrics remain the same as the original. Vishal Dadlani and Payal Dev are the new playback singers for this song but some of the parts still remain the original parts sung by Kishore Kumar. RATING: 5/5

Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiyan

Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiyan

“Maine Suna Hain Mumbai Dilli Di Ya Kudiyaan, Raat Bhar Ni Sondiya” is topping all the hit party playlists. Vayu has been very creative with the lyrics. Dev Negi, Payal Dev & Vishal Dadlani absolutely kill with their fantastic singing. This song will surely ignite your senses and make you extremely happy. RATING: 4/5

Hook Up Song

The Hook Up Song Student Of The Year 2

The hookup song is an absolute winner. Vishal Shekhar deserves hooting for the fabulous composition. Neha Kakkar and Shekhar Ravjiani rock in their genre of singing. “Lele Number Mera, Baad Mein Message Mujhko Kar Dena / Khudko Samajh Ke Lucky, Mujhse Hook Up Tu Kar Le Na” is the most hooking phrase of this song and is going to get you glued to it. RATING: 3/5

Fakira

Fakira Song Student Of The Year 2

This song doesn’t top our list. We expected it to be better, but somehow our expectations got ruined. It’s a romantic ballad which puts light to Rohan and Shreya’s relationship as they start discovering each other and begin to see each other in a different light. Sanam and Neeti Mohan show their expertise in singing this song but anyhow this song fails to live up to our expectations. RATING:3/5

Main Bhi Nhi Soya

Main Bhi Ni Soya Song SOTY 2

Arijit Singh fills up this song with intense emotions. His vocals come about as soothing and heart-touching. Anvita Dutt Guptan’s lyrics are all about free-flowing emotions that will soothe your senses. Enjoy this track on the GaanaPehchaana Hindi Film Music gaming app now and let us know your reviews. RATING: 4/5

Jatt Ludhiyane Da

Jatt Ludhiyane Da

A full-on energetic track “Jatt Ludhiyane Da” stars the damn hot Tiger Shroff and the extremely glamorous Tara Sutaria. This one’s not an extremely original or impressive track but Dadlani and Payal Dev aren’t bad. Even, Deane Sequeira manages the rap part really well. RATING: 2/5

We are extremely happy with the songs that have been composed by Vishal Shekhar and sung by some of our expert musical geniuses. The film’s box office records are quite staggering and the songs seem to be straight out of some High-School Musical Like Fantasy film.

Train Song

Train Song Ranveer Singh

One of the first songs in the Gully Boy album that has not been sung by Ranveer Singh. This is our personal favourite from the album.

Two of the greatest musician and singers, the Indian-American Karsh Kale and desi rockstar Raghu Dixit rock the song with their singing. Rating: 5/5

India 91

Ranveer Singh

“India 91” is a wacky rap with a touch of traditional beats and instruments. More than that, it’s a perfect blend of Hindi and Marathi rap. Viveick Rajagopalan is superb with the music.
