Today is the anniversary of the same legendary musician Jaydev. Dev Anand used to work very hard for the music of his films. Sahir Ludhianvi was responsible for writing the song. Sahir wrote more than one song for this film.

The story of the making of the song ‘Allah Tero Naam’ is interesting

‘I went on playing with life, leaving Abhi Na Jao,’ Kabhi Khud Pe Kabhi Rathal Pe Rona Aaya’ were in this film in superhit songs. Jaidev gave music in all the films, but no one has forgotten these songs till now. The story of this film named Bhajan Allah Tero is very interesting.

Allah Tero Naam Ishwar Tero Naam…, for this song Dev Anand and Vijay Anand decided that it would be sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The trouble was that in those days the conversation between Lata Mangeshkar and the film’s composer Jaydev was closed. Before this film, there was a difference of opinion between Jaidev and Lata ji and Lata Mangeshkar refused to sing songs composed by Jaidev. The trouble escalated when Dev Anand and Vijay Anand decided that if the composer had to change to get Lata ji to sing this song, they would not miss that too.

Both of them reached Lata Mangeshkar’s house to share their point with Lata Mangeshkar. Both the brothers almost insisted on telling Lata ji that if she does not sing the song, then they will change the musician only. It was a time of great dilemma for Lata Mangeshkar. She did not want that Jaidev should be removed from the film for differences over petty matters.

As a result, he agreed to sing. It was during the preparation of this song that talks started again between Jaidev and Lata Mangeshkar. Anything to be said about the popularity of this song is less. Lata Mangeshkar has sung this song in most of her stage shows. After the recording of this song, Jaidev and Lata Mangeshkar worked together in many films.

There is also an interesting anecdote related to Jaidev that when he was about 15 years old, he fled from Punjab to Bombay. He wanted to become an actor. He also acted in some films as a child artist, but he had to return to Ludhiana after the financial condition of the house deteriorated. In the 40s, he took music training from the legendary sarod player Ustad Ali Akbar Khan. He also worked as an assistant to veteran artists like Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and SD Burman.

Apart from the film Hum, he is also remembered for the music of films like Reshma and Shera, Gharaunda and Gaman. The version of Madhushala of Amitabh Bachchan’s father, litterateur Harivansh Rai Bachchan, which we have heard in the voice of Manna Dey, was also composed by Jaidev.
