The late 80s used to be the years, when we didn’t even have the money to buy complete albums and therefore were more into getting all the famous songs recorded in one blank cassette. But Hassan Jahangir’s album had a different story with almost every song being melodious having a great repeat value.
So going with the routine, I first got its title song recorded in a compilation cassette, then another, then the third and then finally realised that the whole album needs to be bought as it had much more than just a couple of good songs in it. Later such was the repeat value of the entire album that I had to buy another copy after a few months, when the first one didn’t sound good post repeated playing and occasional entangling in the tape recorder. Recalling those musical days, we all friends had our own favourites among the 13 songs of the album as listed below.
Side A
1. Hawa Hawa  2. Dil Hai Diwana  3. Dil Jo Tujh Pe Aaya Hai  4. Zindagi Hai Pyar
5. Maigha Jaise Roye  6. Le Bhi Le Dil Tu Mera
Side B
1. Shawa, Ke Nakhra Gori Da  2. Na Jao Zara Mehandi Lagao  3. Aaya Hai Mausam Pyar Ka
4. Yeh Fashion Ke Naye Rang  5. Jee Jee O Parah Disco  6. Kis Naam Se Pukarun  7. Booba Booba Ba Ra Ra
The credits in the album were shared in the inlay as 
Singer : Hassan Jahangir
Chorus : Nahid and Salma Sisters.
Music : Mehboob Ashraf
Due to the huge success of the album in India, Hassan Jahangir was also interviewed by the ever-smiling Tabassum in her famous TV program at Doordarshan. Luckily a short clip of the same is now available at her official Youtube channel Tabassum Talkies at this link:
Following its cult status, the title song of the album has been repeatedly used and adapted in Hindi Cinema in the last three decades. And shared below is the complete list of its use and adaptations in various films.
1. Hawa Hawa (Used as it is) in a video film DON-2 (1989-90)
2. Hawa Hawa (Used as it is) in INSAAF APNE LAHOO SE (1994)
3. Jawan Jawan in BILLOO BAADSHAH (1989) sung by Govinda. 
4. Haan Bhai Haan in TOOFAN (1989) with a slightly reworked tune.
5. Aaya Aaya in AAG KA GOLA (1990) 
6. Hawa Hawa in CHAALIS CHAURASI (2012) after a gap to two decades in 2012.
7. Boyfriend Bana Ley in MUBARAKAN (2017)
Interestingly, years later the internet revolution further revealed that the basic composition of the title song was not even of Hassan, as he also took the unofficial inspiration from the original song of an Iranian singer Kourosh Yaghmaei titled ‘Havar Havar’. 
And the revelation was no doubt disappointing and disheartening together.
However, the fact remains that even after all these adaptations and the original song found and heard, the most melodious and enjoyable track still remains Hassan Jahangir’s 'Hawa Hawa' even after almost three decades of its release, evidently proving the immortal quality of great music that remains the same forever.
