Prem Dhawan in addition to being a very good lyricist, is also a very good music director. He composed music for films like Shaheed (the evergreen musical hit which gave Manoj Kumar the patriotic image of Bharat), and Pavitra Paapi, in which he gave some of the most melodious tunes like Allah Hi Allah , and Teri Duniya se badi door chala.
