Kahin Door Jab Din Dhal Jaaye - Cover By N V Krishnan

Songs from the movie "Anand" are very special to me. First and foremost due to the melody in them and secondly as I used to sing them quite often. These were the first songs which I had recorded in a tape-recorder for the first time and heard them myself. I am talking about the early seventies...1971 , to be more specific. Prior to this though I had sung on stage, but I could not hear what I sang, which all wish to. Our neighbor had bought a spool type tape recorder - GRUNDIG make. Knowing that I do sing, they invited me to their house and asked me to sing in to the tape recorder.

Wow...I still remember how it felt to hear my own voice when the recorded voice was played back. In fact the very first song I recorded was another song, "main ne tere liye hi.." from the same film (Anand).

I have tried to sing the song "Kahin Door.." to the best of my abilty and to some extent in my own style. Do give your feedback. It means a lot to me..

Song : 'Kahin Door Jab Din Dhal Jaaye..'
Movie : Anand
Director : Hrishikesh Mukhergee
Music : Salil Choudhary
Lyrics : Gulzar
Singer : Mukesh

Tu Jo Mere Sur Mein - Cover By N V Krishnan and Rashmi Nair

After singing the very popular song from 'Chitchor', "Jab Deep Jale Aana", I wanted to sing this other beautiful song in the same film, composed by Ravindra Jain and needless to say, converted it to a gem by K J Yesudas, with the commendable support of Hemlata....and here it is.

I have sung this with my good friend and an excellent singer Rashmi Nair. I personally felt that Rashmi was at her best in this.

Hope you all will also like this. Your sincere feedback soilicited..

Yaadein - Cover By N V Krishnan

This is a song which is very close to my heart. A very melodious song composed by Anu Malik from the movie of the great Subhash Ghai, "Yaadein". Hariharans rendition is a treat to your ears. Such lovely silky voice I doubt anyone else has it in this industry.

I have tried to sing within my limited abilities. Please do listen and give a feedback..

Kal Chaudwin Ki Raat Thi -Cover by N V Krishnan

I remember my days in Bhandup, Mumbai, where I was living as a paying guest during my bachelor days. I had a small tape recorder which used to play non stop Jagjit Singh ji's much that once my house-owner, in whose flat I was staying came and asked me..

"If at all you want to play music so loudly why cant you play some good filmi songs? Why these ghazals which none of us enjoy?"

One of the ghazals I used to play then was "Kal chaudwin Ki raat thi" . Here I have tried to sing it in my own style - means I have made some improvisations in certain harkatein.

In addition to the version of Jagjit ji, there is another version sung by Ghulam Ai Saheb also of this great ghazal written by Ibne-e-Insha.

Please listen to this and give your feedback...

Aate Aate Aa Gaye Paas Hum - Cover by N V Krishnan and Sandhya

A very melodious song sung originally by Babul Supriyo and Alka Yagnik from the movie ‘Chori Chori’. Babul is another singer who is not seen singing too many songs of late, despite being highly talented and impressive.

I have sung this with a friend of mine , Sandhya Laxman. Hope we have done good justice.
