Raat Ki.

Anil sang this composition with refreshing vivacity and impressed the crowd by perfectly modulating his voice according to the lyrics.

Hamid Khan, a young classical singer, took the stage with the song, Badi Door Se Aaye Hain from the movie Samjhauta and kept the audience cheering for him all through the song.

He also churned out many other hits of Rafi like Bhari Duniya from Do Badan, Rukh Se Zara Naqab Utha Do from Mere Huzur and O Duniya Ke Rakhwale from the film Baiju Bawra.

“There is no comparison to Rafi’s songs. I don’t know how many times I have listened to some of his songs. Still I crave for more. I had attended this event last year too and I liked the event. So, this time, I came here with a lot of expectations. I could identify a lot of  improvisations in both Hamid and Anil this time,” said Praveen Rego, a member of the audience.

Anil Bajpai was his best throughout the show and performed some everlasting songs like Baharo Phool Barsao, Ye Duniya Ye Mehfil Mere Kaam Ki and Tere Zulfon Se.
