LUCKY & ME


Very few people know that Lucky Ali is the son of the legend Bollywood Comedian Mehmood. And now he is following his Dad s footsteps & making a debut in Bollywood Films in the Tanuja Chandra Musical “Sur”. This is areview is about his debut Musical Album” Sunoh”


He arrived with a big bang on the Indi-pop scene. This album was released under the banner of BMG Cresendo in the year 1996-97. Lucky has come out with various albums after this with great numbers like Sifar, Gori Teri Aankhen, Aks etc and some really good numbers for bollywood films like Kaho Na Pyar Hai , Sur etc.


This was the time when I was in my final year B Com. I used to make it a point to start my day with this album. It was kind of a suprabhat for me. By the time the exams started even Mom & Dad started humming the numbers. Dad of all people….. that was a big big surprise for me. He doesn’t like Hindi & English numbers at all. But is a big fan of classical music. To get Dad humming Sham Savere is a big credit to Lucky Ali or is it my kartoot to have him listen to it day in & day out. Whatz best about him is the passion & genuineness in his voice.


ABOUT SUNOH


The album is a collection of 10 numbers all of which have a tale to tell.


‘O Sanam’ is a dedication to his beloved by Lucky. A very beautifully composed song has Arabian influences and an awesome array of instruments used . The video has been exhaustively shot in Egypt. The classy lyrics add to the passion. (‘Milke Bichadna Dastoor ho gaya, Yaadon mein teri mazboor ho gaya’).


The title track Sunohfollows, and kicks up some steam for the dance floor. Starts with the words Rooswai Mewafai Karke Kar Lo Intehai Ab……….. This is my favorite song in the album & I suppose it will be the same for most Sunoh fans. Lucky sings about living this short life to the fullest by spreading love & peace amongst fellow humans which is seen the following words;


Pal do pal ki duniya saari ey musafir chalta ja. Chalte Chalte rah mein bhi , pyar mohabbat baante ja. Aayega kal khushiyon wala ………


‘Pyar ka musafir’is an extremely hummable number. Mein hoon Pyar Ka Musafir, Dil Khush hai aaj Mera. Jahan Mile Mohabbat vahin mera Basera.. Here Lucky depicts himself as a messenger of love in this world and sees himself dancing in fields spreading love to all.


‘Aap par arz hai’ is a mellow ballad by Lucky for his beloved, where he sings her praises and thanks her for being what she is. Again, one does not know what steals the show - the amazing lyrics or Lucky’s magical voice. (‘Shaam savere na aao nazar, kudrat ki dhoondhoon mein aisi dagar, kisko sunaoon mein haale jigar, tadpa hoon main to saari umar’)


‘Milegi milegi Manzil’is the second best track on the album. Its Lucky Unplugged ! Just Lucky and his acoustic guitar.In search of dreams & being positive in life. The simplicity of the song & lyrics are simply breathtaking (‘Chalte duniya waale saare raah magar anjaan kahin, main to hoon deewana meri deewangi mein naam sahi’).


’Tum Hi Se’A thanks giving number to the God, Sun, Moon Stars etc. (‘Donon jahan ka tu hai ujala rab tune hai humko paala’). A constant continuous beat carries the song through till the end. Lucky actually sounds grateful to the almighty.


‘Yeh zameen hai, aasman hai’ is a love song. The song has a gujju garba kind of a tune.He views himself & his beloved cruising through the snow clad mountain valleys . A simple melody where Lucky again displays how good his vocal cords are.


‘Jab hum chhotey they’sees Lucky remebering his childhood and how at that time he didn’t know what the future had in store for him. A completely different song with regard to the mood & tempo.


‘Kya mausam hai’ is a continuous beat catchy number on the guitar which is one of the best in the album . Lucky takes you back to the land of masti and love. Lucky asks all to be happy all the time cherish the good times and forget the bad times one has been through in life.


‘Yeh Mumbai nagariya’ is no comparison to the others in the album. Lucky sings about his love for the city of Mumbai & I agree to each word of it being a Mumbaiya. It is the weakest link in the album. But still a good number.


The cassette was priced at Rs.45/- in 1996-97 & now it is priced at Rs.100/-. The CD is available for Rs.250/-.


Just hope that Lucky Ali has more such material with him in the years to come !!!!
