It is Laxmikant-Pyarelal have introduced S P Balasubrahmanyam in Ek Duje Ke Liye, released in 1981. When Lata Mangeshkar and S P Balasubrahmanyam were recording “Hum Tum Donon Jab Mil Jayenge, Ek Naya Itihaas Banayenge” for K Balachander’s 1981 tragic romance Ek Duuje Ke Liye, under Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s baton, little did they know that they were on their way to creating box-office history.
S P Balasubrahmanyam have sung as many as 40 songs under Laxmikant-Pyarelal. This includes memorable duets with Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.
EK DUJE KE LIYE (1981)
This was the first hindi film for Kamal Hasan and Rati Agnihotri. Yet another non-star cast musical block blaster, smash hit film. The films success again was carried away by the melodious music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. S. P. Balasubramanium was introduced to hindi film music. He won Filmfare as well as the national award for this film. Who can forget the immortal melodies from this musical hit.
— Tere Mere Beech Main.. Lata/SPB
— Hum Bane Tum Bane.. Lata-SPB
— Hum Tum Dono Jab .. Lata-SPB
— Mere Jeevan Saathi SKB-Chitra
— Sola Baras Ki Bali Umar.. Lata-Anup Jalota
Composed in Hindustani Classical Raag “SHIVRANJANI”. 16 seconds of ‘prelude’ orchestrated with glimpses of GUITAR, Symphony style CELLOs, and VIOLINS and awesome aalaps by Lataji. Excellent “DHOLAK” rhythm. SANTOOR, FLUTE, VIOLINS and SHEHANAI are melleflously decorated in the orchestra.
S P Balasubrahmanyam was a great fan of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Just few months back SPB has expressed his experience and feelings about Laxmikant-Pyarelal which are posted in three parts. MUST WATCH.
RIP S P B
