A journey studded with musical milestones apart from rare nuggets of information and ‘being-the-screen’ happenings . . .

This enthralling volume presents a kaleidoscopic view into the world of Hindi film music, which has held us spellbound for close to 80 years! India’s topmost music historian, Raju Bharatan delves deep into the legendary treasury that is our song history to spotlight how stardom and ’songdom’ to meet to make the film number a part of the nation’s psyche.

The author, on the basis of his being physically present when many memorable melodies were composed and recorded, describes how they came to be audio-visually immortalized. Right from the era of vintage composers such as Khemchand Prakash, Naushad and Anil Biswas to the present-day musicians such as A.R. Rahman, Raju Bharatan paints a broad canvas with bold stokes. He also puts in perspective the significant contributions made by the singers, the lyricists and the instrumentalists. The roles played by ‘wavemakers’ such as Raj Kapoor, Guru Dutt, Vijay Anand and Yash Chopra in picturizing various unforgettable melodies are delineated in graphic detail.

This unique ‘odyssey’ will reveal fascinating facts such as:
•Which composer was to originally score music for Umrao Jaan (1981).
•Why there was an ego stand-off between Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi for three years in the 1960s.
• How Rahul Dev Burman lost out on a prestigious award in the late 1960s.
•How a factual error went unnoticed in the question-and-answer format of Slumdog Millionaire, which recently swept the Oscars.

Here is a tuneful compendium that both the music lover and the lay reader cannot afford to miss.
