Honton Se Chu Lo Tum

Honton Se Chu Lo Tum is arguably the best ghazal to have featured in a bollywood movie. It is extremely difficult not to be moved by the beautiful lyrics by Indivar and the souful tune by Jagjit Singh. The result of their efforts is a timeless classic. There have been quite a few versions of this song apart from the original which is sung by Jagjit Singh in the movie. The version we are singing today is one done by Anuradha Paudwal and Jaswant Singh. It is a duet version and a bit slower than the original. Vidyu has accompanied me to sing this beautiful song and has done a stellar job. Hope you enjoy our attempt at this classic. Please have a listen at your convenience.

Original Singer in movie : Jagjit Singh
Original Duet Version : Jaswant Singh and Anuradha Paudwal
Movie: Premgeet (1981)
Music Director: Jagjit Singh
Lyrics: Indivar
Sung By: Soumitra & Vidyu

Wonderful! I am so used to hearing Jagjit Singh's solo version. Your duet sounded really good. I really liked the aalap that you both sang at the end. Your voices blended very well.
