Zee Classic celebrates the best of ‘Musical Entertainer’ Nasir Hussain this January

Nasir Hussain is a name that echoes continuously in hearts of the fans of Iconic Indian cinemas. This legendary producer-director is best known as the founder of Indian masala films and has given the audience a lot of hit films. His vision and style paved the path for commercial Indian cinema as it stands today. A lot of evergreen movies like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Teesri Manzil, Hum Kisise Kum Nahin and Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar were in fact his creations. His formula of using great music with high impact drama along with star power catapulted his movies to major box-office success and won him the title of ‘Musical Entertainer’. 

Nasir Hussain always maintained that it was more interesting to show the process of the hero and heroine falling in love run through the film rather than have the hero and heroine in love and that is what makes his films special. His films made the process of boy wooing girl and winning her over a most enjoyable affair. For all the music lovers, you may recognise Nasir Hussain better, for he is the one whose songs are most remembered. Still guessing?  O Haseena Zulfonwali, O Mere Sona Re, Chura liya hai tumne jo dil ko if not the original, the remixes will ring a bell.
