The Golden Voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

Spread the love

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is one of the most sought after names in the world of Bollywood playback today. He is the nephew of the legend, the late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Here are some of his unforgettable renditions.

Dil To from Ishqiya

The lilting melody has a foot tapping, waltz like rhythm and a background score to match. Check out the skilful interposition of instrumentals in the background and deft picturization, liberally sprinkled in the promos. The camera lingers on an elderly Naseeruddin Shah waltzing a beautiful, green clad Vidya Balan. In fact, the making of the song is itself one of the promos featured on the official movie website.

Good music along with eye catching visuals, ensured a good opening for this low budget affair released at the end of January 2010. The rest, of course, is history. Together with positive reviews across the board, and strong word of mouth, the opening weekend collections beat all expectations and Ishqiya is considered the first clean hit of 2010.

Sajda in My Name is Khan

Though music lovers may argue that Sajda is not in the same class as its immediate predecessor, it probably received greater media exposure due its high profile star cast. Released in February 2010, My Name is Khan brings together ShahRukh Khan and Kajol after almost a decade, and Kajol looks as fresh and as radiant as in their last picturized duet Suraj hua madhyam.

Main Jahan Rahoon, in Namaste London

Loosely translated as ‘wherever I live, your memory is with me’, it echoes the sentiments of a non resident Indian. The sufi like creation is somewhat uncharacteristic of its composer Himesh Rishamiya (popular for his hip hop and dance tracks), but its musical quality is unquestionable. Namaste London is famous as the first successful pairing of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif, but this patriotic number did not feature either of the lead pair. Instead the camera captures the dreary bylanes of Indian cities and towns.

Mann ki Lagan

The Golden Voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan

The Bhatt camp, officially called Vishesh Productions, is known for quality music and this soundtrack is no exception. A sufi style song with a fast catchy rhythm, Lagan lagi man ki lagan catapaulted Rahat Fateh Ali Khan to fame in 2003.

It appears that the maestro may be highly selective and lends his voice to a few select compositions. Though his Hindi film repertoire is limited in range, most of the songs have had a lasting effect.
