ज्योत से ज्योत जगाते चलो, प्रेम की गंगा बहाते चलो

It was Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s 6th released film. The film is a mythsylogial film with A Grade Music. Once again extremely sweet, melodious and popular music pulled the crowed into cinema hall. All the songs of the film were super duper hit. The film was a huge hit. The meaningful wordings of all the songs are written by none other than PANDIT BHARAT VYAS.

The film was produced by Ranglok and directed by Manibhai Vyas. It has Shahu Modak in lead roll as well as Sudhir Kumar with Sulochana Latkar. The film is still being remembered for it’s songs and one big HIT song. ”Jyot Se Jyot Jagate Chalo””…It can be heard in many of the Temples at any part of the world.

While shooting for the film in Alandi a religious place in Maharashtra. Laxmikant-Pyarelal decided to visit the holy Temple. Laxmikant decided to visit it in a cue rather then in VIP line. While they were in the cue they heard an old lady murmuring a tune and noted down an composed the song Jyot Se Jyot Jagaate Chalo.

Extremely Melodious, based on Hindustani Classical Raag, ‘SHIVRANJANI’…One of the best of Lata-LP.. Start with Lataji’s awesome rendering ..भोर भये नित सूरज सांझ पड़े ढल जाये। ………..खबर मोरी ना लीनी। बहोत दिन बीते  and Beautiful TABLA rhythm starts. There is beautiful singing ‘pause’ of 3 seconds. The first ‘interlude’ orchestrated with SAROD, VIOLINS and the FLUTE. Second ‘interlude’ starts with SAROD, VIOLINS and XYLOPHONE. Both the “antras” have different tunes. FLUTE is tunefully used as a filler in second ‘antra’ . A masterpiece from Lata-LP combo.
