Talking Songs

 
Nasreen Munni Kabir (Author)
Synopsis This book is centred around an engaging and lively conversation on the Hindi/Urdu film song between the renowned poet and lyricist, Javed Akhtar and documentary film director and author Nasreen Munni Kabir. One of the first on the subject, the book also includes a selection of sixty songs written by Javed Akhtar for the many hugely successful films to which he has contributed. These songs are a reminder of the excellence of his work and for those unfamiliar with Hindi/Urdu, English translations are also provided. It is an established fact that the Indian film song enjoys an enormous impact, and has always been a vital part of the national culture. For the reader, it is a rare privilege to discover the thinking that went behind a song that can be heard in a billion homes. This book will interest and appeal to Hindi film and music buffs both within India and outside.
