An evening of Laxmikant Pyaarelal's compositions will take the city back to the golden era
When the tunes of the mandolin collaborated with the notes of the violin at Mumbai-based Sureel Kala Kendra, a musical academy under the guidance of Lata Mangeshkar's family, 51 years ago, who would have known that they would change the sound of Indian cinema. Composers Laxmikant and Pyaarelal made the country dance to the tunes of evergreen songs such as Hasta hua nurani chehara from Parasmani (1963), Dafali wale from Sargam (1980), Chithi aayi hai from Naam (1986) and Ek do teen from Tezaab (1988). Their songs ruled the charts even years after the movies released.
As the duo celebrates 51 years in Hindi cinema, Puneites will be able to relive the magic of their songs on Thursday at a musical night organised by the NGO Humrahi.
The event is aptly called "Woh jab yaad aaye". The founders of Humrahi say it is their expression of gratitude towards the composer duo for their contribution to the music industry. The programme will be held at Yashwantrao Chavan Auditorium on Thursday. Renowned singers Vibhavari Joshi, Madhura Datar, Hrishikesh Ranade, Pramodh Ranade and Ali Hussain will perform at the show. Avinash Chandrachur and his team of 10 violinists, three guitarists, five rhythmics, one flautist, one saxophonist, one sitarist, three keyboardists and a mandolin player will handle the music.
