Sargam (Urdu: سرگم‎) is a Pakistani musical Urdu film directed by Syed Noor starring the singer Adnan Sami and his ex-wife Zeba Bakhtiar.[1] The film was Adnan Sami Khan's first and last appearance in any Pakistani film. He composed some songs with Indian singer Asha Bhonsle and created an all time Pakistani record for any single film with as many as 10 songs, most of them super-hit songs. A classical musician Maharaj Ghulam Hussain Kathak appeared as an actor in this film. The song 'Woh Mujhey Yaad Aaya'[2] was sung by the popular Pakistani pop artist Hadiqa Kiyani. It was an instant hit for her and increased her popularity. The film got an enormous public acclaim and it also earned a handsome amount of business in the Middle East. The Kuwait national TV also ran it in 1996, and it was also shown by Pakistan Television (PTV) in 1996. It was a major successful hit of actress Zeba Bakhtiar. But no critic raised the point that the said film had an essence of Indian film Pakeezah (1972), or merely an inspiration from its story. The points of similarity between the 2 films are: 1-Double role of Zeba as a courtesan and then later on in the movie, a role played by the same Zeba as the courtesan's daughter. 2-Nadeem is a member of a Nawab family and his aristocratic and notable family's refusal to accept a courtesan as his wife, just on account of her being a courtesan. 3-In the end-sequence, Adnan Sami similarly calls "chacha jaani" to Nadeem as actor Raaj Kumar had called in film Pakeezah (1972) to actor Ashok Kumar. These points must be borne in mind while critically viewing this film.


Most of the film songs were written by Riaz ur Rehman Saghar, music by Adnan Sami Khan

The music was composed by Adnan Sami Khan
