My favourite golden oldie song for the month of July is a Bollywood choice, and as my favourite music composer Himesh Reshammiya celebrates his birthday on 23rd July, I have decided to choose one of my favourite songs of his: the Ahista Ahista title track.
Ahista Ahista – title track
Ahista Ahista is a romantic film which released in 2007 and starred Abhay Deol and Soha Ali Khan in the lead roles. Himeshji gave the music to the full soundtrack, and not only was he at his peak during this era, but he gave us some real gems on this particular soundtrack (Love You Unconditionally, Tanha Tere Bagair to name a few).
I am particularly fond of the title track as Himeshji created a very different sound and we got to hear a different texture in his powerful voice (especially in comparison to his other compositions which were releasing at the time), and it was the first time that he worked with lyricist Irshad Kamil (they later worked together to create the magical Prem Ratan Dhan Payo soundtrack).
I hope you enjoy this month’s favourite golden song. Wishing Himeshji a very Happy Birthday for the 23rd July. Let me know if it is one of your favourites too!
