Songs, down the memory lane !

One night, just ahead of the weekend, lazing on the bed, I was just doodling on my phone... For some reason, I remembered this song... and as they say one thing led to another and there I was listening to a set of songs, with my commentary and whatsapping those to a group !

Here is the first song from that movie - Sharaabi - this movie was so slow to pick up and then picked up steam to attain a mini-cult status with lot of us in the mid-20s at that time... Inteha Ho Gayi Intezaar Ki... That movie... That song... Trip down (my) memory lane :-)

Here is one more. The mother is beautiful too. " O Mere Dil Ke Chain"

And her is the Gujju bhai and ben ! Meri Bheegi Bheegi Si

And... This one; The way she flirts with the camera is just awesome (no, i'm not talking about VIjay Arora).... Chura liya hai-YAADON Ki BARAT

And the next one, is just poetry..Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye - Jurm

And poignant...
To understand that poignancy, you should have been 17 year old, in early 80s, and watch Amitabh lose everything that he loves... That was Amitabh losing - the man who had it all and could do all ! O SATHI RE TERE BINA BHI KYA JINA:

Although I love  Kishore"s version immensely, there is a certain classical allure of how she (Parveen Sultana) sings it. And here are both the versions. The lead-in music is more haunting... But judge for yourself which version is better... ( "Humien Tumse Pyar Kitna Yeh Hum Nahi Jante from Kudrat)

Anyways, that's out for tonight... Will end it with a song, that is lyrically just lovely... And the rendition adds to the experience !!! "Pyar Deewana Hota Hai"
