Mar Jaawan

soche dil ke aisa kash ho... tujhko ek nazar meri talash ho..
jaise... khwab hai akhon mein base meri
waise... neendo pe silvate pare meri

These are the lines that absolutley got me when I first heard the song and the strong vocals of Shruti Pathak esp. when she sings "silvate pare meri". Shruti's voice is just so striking and perfect for the mood of this song and the way it is picturised ...glamour on the ramp!

Love everything about this song..the background music, the slide guitar bits and best of all, the sarangi which we hardly get to listen to in film music these days.. ..a great mix!
Kuntal, this one is for u! Thanks for introducing me to this song and singing it for us!!! :-)
I hope you like my attempt of this beautiful composition. Thanx for listening :-)

Movie Name : Fashion
Original Singers : Shruti Pathak & Salim Merchant
Music Director : Salim-Suleman
Sung by : Vidyu

Beautiful! Your voice sounds awesome in the lower range as well.

That was beautiful !! you sound excellent and shows how strong your low notes are !The harkatein you took were fabulous.
If you increase the volume of your voice a little more will sound much better ...just a suggestion.

Unknown said...

Very nice .. a beautiful song and a fantastic rendition! :)

You've precisely captured the feel of the original.

Brilliant 'piece of work'. Brings out the true range of your capability, as a singer, from reaching high notes (in some of your other songs), to floating in the middle, and going all the way to the lower-octaves like this song. Pro-stuff!

Like the way you freely roam within a vast era of hindi film music so freely, & fluently.....from the 60's to the modern-day music....and execute each of them so beautifully. It's like a bouquet of flowers, many different blooms/colors in the same vase. Amazing.

What?? Vidyu, is that really you singing this song?..I really can't believe it..I heard this out of curiosity after listening to ur Vrischika Penne and commenting and now I am really spellbound..I felt like listening to the original Mar Jawaan only..How come you are able to sound almost exactly like the original singer in such very diff songs?..You seem really versatile..God bless :) will check out more of your songs :)

Vidyu said...

Thank you! :) Thanks for the encouraging words :)
