R D Burman Death Anniversary: 5 top hits with Lata Mangeshkar


Legendary music director-composer R D Burman passed away on January 4, 1994 in Mumbai, at the age of 54. Here`s looking at 5 top hits with Lata Mangeshkar. When the legends came together to create music, it was pure magic.

Raina Beeti Jaye

`Raina Beeti Jaaye` from `Amar Prem` had the legend using a morning raga (raga Lalit) for a song set at night, with unforgettable lyrics by Anand Bakshi. Actors Sharmila Tagore and Rajesh Khanna were at their emotive best. 

Tere Bina Zindagi Se Koi Shikwa Toh Nahin

`Tere Bina Zindagi Se Koi Shikwa Toh Nahin` from the 1975 release `Aandhi,` was originally a song that Burman composed in Bengali. Later it became part of the Sanjeev Kumar and Suchitra Sen film, sung by Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. Directed by the renowned lyricist Gulzar, `Aandhi` was banned by the then government during the emergency on the grounds that the film’s protagonist bore an inappropriate resemblance to Mrs. Gandhi. The song however, remains an evergreen classic. 

Dilbar Dil Se Pyaare

One would think this peppy number from `Caravan` was more Asha Bhosle`s style but Lata Mangeshkar created magic with it. The music by Burman was top notch as usual. 

Bahon Mein Chale Aao

This gem from `Anamika` featured Jaya Bachchan and Sanjeev Kumar, with lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri. The song was among Mangeshkar`s all-time favourites and she would often sing it at her live concerts.

Bheegi Bheegi Raaton Mein

This seductive number sung by Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar featured Zeenat Aman and actor Rajesh Khanna in the movie `Ajanabee.` It remains one of the most romantic rain numbers of all time.
