O.P. Nayyar – biography, lyrics, songs

O.P. Nayyar was born in 1926 at Lahore and became the director music in Bollywood.

Most of his infusions have a diverse Punjabi influence. His family shifted from Lahore to Amritsar after partition. In 1949, Nayyar came to Bombay and met the producer-director Krishan Kewal who was creating Kaneez. Thus his career began with scoring the background music for Kaneez.

He made his name in Aar par, CID, Howra Bridge and Nayadour. O.P. Nayyar was born in British India, in Lahore. He was earlier conducted in AIR, Jullundur. Nayyar scored very popular music for many 1950’s films like Baaz, Aar Paar, Mr and Mrs ’55.

He dropped out of college to compose music. Not long afterwards HMV, the recording company released his compositions ‘Pritam aaan milo’. In 1951, a close friend recommended Nayyar to Pancholi who was releasing Nagina starring Nutan and Nasir Khan. But he got his break as a composer in Aasmaan. Guru Dutt’s Aar Paar was a hit and later on they worked in together Mr. and Mrs. 55. He won filmfare award for Naya Daur in 1957.

In the 50s, his films include Tumsa Nahin Dekha, and Howrah Bridge with the most famous song, Mera naam Chin Chin Choo. He also scored the Shammi Kapoor’s hit film, Kashmir Ki Kali.

In the 1960s he brought out movie every year and crafted exquisite scores for Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon (1963), Kashmir Ki Kali (1964) and Mere Sanam (1965). He had limited musical education but he embellished his songs with well-chosen instruments like the sarangi which he popularised or the piano which ripples through Aapke haseen rukh pe from Baharein Phir Bhi Aayegi.

In the late 1960s, Nayyar fell out with his favorite Mohammed Rafi, but managed to -conjure memorable songs even with Mukesh, Mahendra Kapoor, and Kishore Kumar. Nayyar was so involved with Asha Bhosle that he refused other great singers like Geeta Dutt and Lata Mangeshkar. Together they created magic. In about 70 films, they scaled new heights in music. He molded Asha’s voice and gave her style and respectability. The Nayyar-Asha team lifted to an unprecedented high in 1957 – 1958 with around nine releases in both years and a string of successful scores like Naya Daur (for which he won the Best Music Director Award), Sone Ki Chidiya, Phagun, Howrah Bridge, Ragini, Tumsa Nahin Dekha.
