Movie Details of Tere Ghar Ke Saamne

Music: S.D. Burman

Lyrics: Hasrat Jaipuri

Label: Saregama HMV

Director: Vijay Anand

The other day on twitter I came across a letter written by Dev Anand in appreciation of the genius of SD Burman, where he names his banner Navketan Films as synonymous with Burman’s music. If you were to look at the production house’s portfolio from its inception till the early 70s, you would see that most of the musically prominent movies had Dada Burman behind them. Tere Ghar Ke Saamne was one of the key albums in that series, featuring a refreshingly light-hearted set of songs from lyricist Hasrat Jaipuri and the composer. With the charming Dev Anand and Nutan’s onscreen chemistry, the soundtrack also translated into a veritable visual treat.

Best Song of Tere Ghar Ke Samne: Though Rafi got a larger share of the songs and some fine ones among them, my favourite from Tere Ghar Ke Saamne is the folksy Lata Mangeshkar solo Yeh Tanhai Haaye Re Haaye – I find the melodic progression, especially of the opening verse, incredibly imaginative.
