ROSHAN – THE CLAS­SI­CAL KING!

T3 India - - RETRO | RAJESH ROSHAN AND SAREGAMA - H. S. Bil­limo­ria Words

Roshan, (full name, Roshan­lal Na­grath) was a fa­mous mu­sic direc­tor in the 1960’s. He was the fa­ther of ac­tor and direc­tor, Rakesh Roshan, mu­sic direc­tor Ra­jesh Roshan and grand fa­ther of Hrithik Roshan. Mu­sic ran in the Roshan fam­ily and Roshan made his mark with his film ‘Baawre Nain’ re­leased in 1950. Roshan’s mu­sic com­bined Hin­dus­tani clas­si­cal mu­sic with folk mu­sic and there­fore gave his fi­nal mu­si­cal ef­fort a very strong eth­nic touch. His ca­reer was cut short when he sud­denly died of a mas­sive heart at­tack in 1967 at the age of 50 years. Like other mu­sic di­rec­tors, for ex­am­ple, Madan Mo­han, Jaidev etc, Roshan was a tri­fle un­lucky as the films for which he gave mu­sic did not al­ways hit the jack­pot. The qual­ity of his mu­sic, how­ever, re­mains and it is ap­pro­pri­ate that T3 re­calls his con­tri­bu­tion to the Hindi film mu­sic in­dus­try in this is­sue. Also, none of Roshan’s tunes is copied or in­spired.
