Bas Ek Chup si Lagi Hai...Hemant Da voice with Gulzar words

Whenever the name of Gulzar & Hemant da comes together the first movie which comes to mind is Khamoshi. How can one forget those immortal songs like..Pyar ko pyar hi rehne do koyi naam na di, tumhara intezaar hai pukar lo and Wo shaam kuch ajeeb thi.

But in general we forget about another score in which these maestro came together. The film was Sannata which was released three years before release of Khamoshi . Most of the song of the film were sung by Lata ji. But my favourite among them was a song sung by Hemant Da.

Hearing even the mukhda of the song was enough to get in that melancholy mood. A song with simple  yet effective words with minimal instrumental and soul stirring voice of Hemant da you can't help but mumble along..

Bas Ek Chup Si Lagi Hai
Nahin Udaas Nahin
Kahin Pe saans Ruki Hai, Nahin Udaas Nahin...
