Along with this heart touching story, its poignant music worked as icing on the cake for a unique night.
The film’s song ‘Oh Re Taal Mile Nadi Ke Jal Mein’ was very popular. Its music was by Roshan and its lyrics were written by Indeevar. It was sung by Mukesh in his velvety voice. Mukesh’s singing has a different magic. His voice forces one to dive into the ocean of emotions. This song is also an example of that. This song shows how smooth singing and simple yet heartfelt poetry can create a magical effect. This is such a song in the history of Hindi cinema which has been relevant at all times.
Roshan’s music has always been something out of the box. A glimpse of this can also be seen in Anokhi Raat’s ‘Oh Re Taal Mile Nadi Ke Jal Mein’. Anokhi Raat released after Roshan’s death. But its music cast such a spell on the audience that it continues even today after 54 years.
Anokhi Raat was also a big hit at the Filmfare Awards that year. The film won Filmfare Awards for Best Art Direction, Best Cinematographer, Best Screenplay and Best Dialogue.
