Enkayaar, Bollywood Trade News Network
In passing away of Feroz Khan the world of Hindi film music has indeed been orphaned, as he was one director who had the audacity to experiment with all kinds of sounds, instruments, and voices. It also is an amazing fact that the film stars who turn to music have an amazing sense of music and there sense of music provides them the initial opening when the film is released. Be it Rakesh Roshan or Subhash Ghai their sense of music is amazing, or for that matter Raj Kapoor and Feroz Khan is also an illustrious name in this category.
Though his oeuvre of films that he directed are not large in number, each of the films that he directed gave a new direction to film music in Hindi cinema.
It all started when he made DHARMATMA and it was characterized by innovative usage of mouth organ, which used to rise through the film in a lilting manner invoking passion. For Mukesh under the baton of Kalyanji Anandji it was a return to soft romantic songs in a big way. The song "Kya Khoob Lagti ho", with combination of a mouth organ and bongo as the accompanying acoustic instrument is still one of the all time favorite romantic songs that transcends across generations.
