Karachi: 13 years have passed since world-renowned composer Nisar Bazmi left the world. But his everlasting melodies still blend into the ears of listeners.
Born in 1924 in the town of Khandish in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Nizar Bazmi began his artistic journey with All India Radio and shortly after began to film films in Bombay.
His star in Bombay was so high that composers like Lakshmi Kant Pyare Lal worked in his support. But he left India and settled in Pakistan at the behest of Pakistani film industry architect Fazal Ahmad Fazli.
His debut as a musician in Pakistan was ‘It Happens’, in which his song ‘Love is like the tone of your head’, but Ahmed Rushdie and Madam Noor Jahan have magnetized their melodious voices.
After that he created music for films like “Saiqa”, “Anjum”, “My Life Is Song”, “Khak and Blood” and “We Are One”.
Nisar Bazmi has been honored with several other awards, including Pride of Performance in recognition of his technical services. Great composers got off the mark on March 22, 2007, but the music they create still fascinates millions.
