Tasveer banata hoon......(Bara-Dari-1955 : Jagjit Singh Version) sung by Dr Sridhar Saxena

Lyrics & Chords

This song, originally sung by velvet voiced Talat Mehmood sahab is one of the most popular numbers by him. I also liked original very much but ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh sahab sang it in his album “CLOSE TO MY HEART”(2003) and I fell in love with it. I am not sure how others who love originals only, will react to this version which has been totally transformed into something very peppy by the legendary singer. Modern instruments with western beats made it a good listen to me….

The karaoke track has been prepared by me by Vocal cutting method….this track is not available anywhere otherwise….

I PRAY TO ALMIGHTY TO BESTOW UPON GOOD HEALTH TO JAGJIT SAHAB WHO IS RECOVERING FROM A SERIOUS AILMENT

Kindly evaluate my humble attempt……

Film- BARA-DARI (1955)

Originally sung by: Talat Mehmood

Cover version- Jagjit Singh

Album- CLOSE TO MY HEART (2003)

Lyrics- KHUMAAR BARABANKVI

Music – SHAUKAT ALI DEHALVI (NASHAD)

Dr Sahab,

I had only heard this in Talat sahab’s voice. This is definitely a very modern spin to the song. Sounded very good and the music track is awesome too! I think this will be the way of the future – use the incredible lyrics and redo the masterpieces with new instruments, better instruments and much better recording.

Great effort in creating the track. Didn’t feel like a voice-cut anywhere.

Wishing a speedy recovery to Jagjit Singh sahab.

Great singing as usual! Enjoyed it.

Dr Sahab,

Enjoyed a lot. The rendition of Talatji is so deep rooted in the mind. But Fusion by Jagajit ji is also very Novel & Catchy.

Your singing gives the feel of the original by Jagjit ji. So very melodious and smooth take.
The Track is outstanding. http://www.muziboo.com/dilipkawathekar/music/sun-mere-bandhu-re-sachin-dev-barman-version/

First of all let me Pray for the Soul of Jagjitji,
May God ’Rest Him in Peace!
Nothing more to add on that at this Sad Occasion!
Sridharji, your rendition is beautiful!
To be frank, the original by Talatji is more melodious, I think! This one is something entirely different, you have done it sweetly!
Keep it up!!
