In my one of the earlier Blogs I wrote that Destiny play an important role in man's career.In the Film Industry also it plays its role.There are many instances when some one wants to become an Actor but he fails in that later he tries his hand in other field and he becomes successful in that area
His first hit song was" Ae ghame dil kya karoon" sung by Talat Mahmood in the film'Thokar" starring Shammi Kapoor.
Next year1954 his film Aulad came,the movie had some great songs"Duniya Tasveer Hai"by Talat Mahmood and"Tum Salamat Raho Hazar baras'by Asha were very popular.same year another film"Chor Bazar"came out with beautiful songs by Lata,'Chalta Rahe Yeh Carvan"and'Dar Dar Ki Thokren Hain"were hit.
Though Sardar Malik has composed for not more than 30 films he is recognized for the quality of his work. It was he who could get Mukesh to sing most tunefully in Saranga. Mukesh always felt that in his rendering of a song his voice fell somewhere. Malik’s composition Saranga teri yaad mein and all the numbers of Saranga are remembered for Mukesh’s beautiful rendering.
Saranga's songs were very popular and it remains Sardar Malik's best composition.In this movie the title song "saranga teri yaad Mein"is remembered for Mukesh but the same song was also sung by Mohammad Rafi,I am posting that version also.
Sardar Malik's career as Music composer ran for many years but he was not considered as a hit Music Director by the Industry.Later he started teaching music,in an interview he said that whatever he possesed like House all came from the earnings from teaching.
Sardar Malik was married to Kausar jehan who was a sister of famous lyricist Hasrat Jaipuri,he had three sons-Anu Malik,Abu Malik and Dabbu Malik.He passed away on 27th Jan 2006,he is no more with us but his compositions are still in our heart.
As my Tribute to this great Composer I am Posting rare songs by Sardar Malik
