Hindu has an article on Rajesh Roshan, the music director who is not much talked about.
I was shocked at my ignorance when I read that Julie and Yaaraana movie songs were composed by Rajesh Roshan. Same goes with Baaton Baaton Mein, Mr. Natwarlal and so many other movies.
Mere jaisa yaar kahan is such an out and out R D Burman number that I still can’t believe this song is composed by Rajesh Roshan. How about Dil Kya Kare Jab Kisise Kisi Ko Pyaar Ho Jaaye from Julie?. This song is such a strong R D Burman flavor that one wouldn’t think twice if you said this song was composed by Panchamda.
One can see the humble, sensible nature of this music composer in this article. He is humble enough to acknowledge that it was difficult for him to make a place for himself when music directors like Kalyanji Anandji and Laxmikant Pyarelal were making hay. Read what he has to say about the current music composers and singers. I agree with Rajesh Roshan, I miss Rafi. I would also like to add Kishore to that. I miss Rafi and Kishore.
