Mehnaz Begum (1958 -- 19 January 2013) was a Pakistani singer, well known for her film appearances.She sang a variety of genres but specialized in ghazal, thumri, dadra, khayal, drupad and reciting salam, noha and marsiya. She was the daughter of celebrated sub-continental singer Kajjan Begum.and the famous government officer Abdullah Abdullah Tasnim, but when she realized fame, she changed her maiden name to Mehnaz.
One of her most memorable works is Master Piece. Master Piece is a painting that Tasnim created when she was taking a drawing class in collage.
She died 19 January 2013 at Bahrain Airport while transiting from Karachi to Miami, United States for medical treatment.
Daughter of reputed singer, Kajjan Begum, Mehnaz showed all artistic signs of music from her earlier days.
Truth be told, she did not mold herself upon her mother. She was influenced by her.
Mehnaz made her debut from Pakistan television's musical program in the beginning of the 1970s.
The song 'Chandni raatain' (the film 'Dopatta') was recorded in her voice. (originally sung by Noor Jehan.)
Apart from receiving appreciation from the public, she earned the respect and encouragement from Noor Jehan herself.
Mehnaz's earlier break through paved the way for her future distinguished singing career.
Soon she started recording songs for the movies.
The following song not only ignited her career, but also became the most radio-recorded romantic number of the yester years.
'Mein jis din bhula doon tera pyar dil say, wo din Aakhri ho meri zindigi ka' (the film 'Khushbu', starring: Shahid, Rani, Mumtaz, Ibrahim Nafees, Rangeela).
Below is a duet, which is her crowning achievement. She knew she was all for it:
'Pyar ka wada aisay nibha yein' (Mehnaz- Mehdi Hasan)
Better still was the song in the film 'Bazaar-e-husn', directed by Mohammad Javed Fazil: 'Lehroan ki tarhaan tujh ko bikharnay nahi dain gey'.
The film 'Sheeshay ka ghar' (director: Nazrul Dada) was brought to life by the following duet:
'Ye safar teray, meray pyar ka' (Mehnaz- Mehdi Hasan).
When it came to any situation in a movie that had emotion, composers usually turned to Mehnaz. Example:
'Wada karo saajna' (Duet: Mehnaz- Alamgir, the mega hit movie, 'Aa'ena', director: Nazrul Dada).
For the sake of record, Mehnaz also lent her voice to the following films:
'Pehchaan', 'Prince', 'Play boy', 'Aankhon, Aankhon mein', 'Chori, chori', 'Qurbani',
'Bewe ho to aisi', 'Kabhi alwida na kehna', 'Balandi', 'Ehtejaaj', 'Anmol mohabbat',
'Amber', 'Aabshaar', 'Accident', 'Badaltay mausum', 'Parastish', 'Pehli nazar',
'Daman', 'Do raastay'.
She also had a knack for doing the best in romantic numbers. Two examples:
'Mein tujhay dil mein basa loon' (the film 'Bandish')
'Do pyasay dil aik huway' (duet: Mehnaz- Mehdi Hasan, the film 'Bandish').
Mehnaz has that unparalleled quality to inflame almost any audience through her magical voice:
