I don’t know what it should be called. We know of numerous examples of songs or just some parts being copied from music of different regions within the country or beyond. But I observed a few songs where the music directors chose to pick some music from their own old songs and use it to a different effect and even though you must have heard these songs it’s easy to miss the connection. I have uploaded some audio clips by adding the inspirational and the inspired music together into 25 to 35 sec pieces. Also have put the relevant time label for YouTube links where the particular line/music is played.
- Mukhda of the title song of FIZA(@1:12-1:13-1:47) was filler music in Kitabein bahut si of BAAZIGAR (@1:45-2:03).
- Mukhda of another song LML baba LML (@1:00-1:14)from HATHKADI got its music from filler music in the same song Kitabein bahut si from Baazigar (@0:40-0:50 etc.). Volume of the first part in the clip is bit low, turn up your speakers!
- Similarly Mukhda of ishq hua, kaise hua from ISHQ (@1:04-1:40) had its music in another song of Baazigar, ae mere humsafar (@0:13-0:34)
- The line hum zulfein to bikhra de from song humko humhi se chura lo (Mohabbatein) (@2:54-3:05) was from the biggest hits of its times tujhe dekha to ye jaana sanam (DDLJ)(@3:22-3:33).
The common music director to all the above songs is… you know it right, Anu Malik. And I thought this is something just he does, until I found this one by Jatin Lalit, connecting DDLJ and Mohabbatein.
P.S. Just in case the audio player isn't working, you may click on the song names and visit their YouTube links. Time at which the relevant portions occur have been mentioned against the names.
