Blessed with a distinctive and evocative voice, Mohammed Rafi’s music resonate with thousands and thousands, 4 many years right after he bid adieu to the entire world. Born in Amritsar, Rafi was only 7 when he learnt Hindustani classical audio and at 13 made his playback singing debut. Renowned for his potential to mould his voice, the legendary singer crooned for scores of actors. In his illustrious occupation, he sung more than 5000 tunes in many languages. From his soulful and passionate rendition to the qawwalis and ghazals to peppy music, Rafi was the master of all, discovering each style of new music below the sky.
As we celebrate Rafi’s 96th start anniversary, listed here is a playlist of his timeless tracks.
Kya Hua Tera Wada
Rafi gained a Countrywide Award for rendering this his most recognisable song. The new music scored by the famous RD Burman and Rafi’s highly effective voice helps make this range a memorable one particular. The movie was Hum Kisise Kum Naheen which was musical hit.
Teri Bindiya Re
This track from the 1973 movie Abhimaan is sung by Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar. The lyrics penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri is a reminder of a sweeter and subtler romance. The tune filmed on Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan is as satisfying as ever.
Yeh Chand Sa Roshan Chehra
Yeh Chand Sa Roshan Chehra from Kashmir Ki Kali has Shammi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore. Lots of of Shammi’s well-known songs ended up sung by Rafi and this beautiful song was almost certainly the most well-known. Established in the picturesque environment of the heavenly Dal Lake, the calming tune is also a nostalgic composition.
Badan Pe Sitare Lapete Huye
The foot-tapping amount Badan Pe Sitare Lapete Huye from the film Prince experienced to seem on this list. Rafi’s voice is in great and easy sync with Shammi Kapoor’s antics. Vyjayanthimala was also part of this legendary strike.
Deewana Hua Badal
The charming duet of Rafi and Asha Bhonsle carefully uplifted this melody. Rafi’s voice feels magical as it emerges from the breathtaking backdrop of the scenic Kashmir location. The lyrics of this traditional Bollywood romantic range was created by S.H. Bihari and composed by O. P. Nayyar.
