Ask anybody from my generation what above song means for him/her …. you’ll not get back an answer …. you’ll see him/her getting lost in memories … you’ll see him/her watching the video closely and smiling for no reason …… you’ll see many shades of nostalgia appearing at a time …..
itz really hard to describe the feeling (at least for me) that i get after hearing this song after so many years …
really brings back the childhood memories …. really makes me go back to those days and live them again ……. all my friends i had at that time … we used to sing this song in chorus and make fun of each other … we used to wait till the end of the video to see Amitabh, Jeetendra & Mithun sing the final line of song ….
also, reminds me of mom telling me that last few lines are sung by Lata Mangeshkar .. mom used to tell me earlier (before this video came) that movies are not for real and how a hero/heroine simply move their lips while playback singer sings the actual song … but i listened to her and could not believe this (it seemed so unreal to believe that the actor/actress i am seeing on screen are just moving their lips) …. until i saw this video …. when Tanuja starts singing “sur ki nadiyan har disha se … behke saagar mein mileeeeee” …. cut to Hema Malini “baadlon ka ruup leke … barse … halke halke …” …… cut to Sharmila Tagore “hoooooo mile sur mera tumhara” … and final cut to Lata Mangeshkar “mile suuuuuur mera tumhara …. to sur bane hamara” ….
this transition effect between multiple actresses i think made me believe that ok “mom is correct” 🙂
also, reminds me of how bhaiya & me used to make fun of some classical singers who used to come in the beginning of video …..
like pandit bhimsen joshi ….. bhaiya used to say “iski shakal dekh ke lagta hai ki isko badi tez aa rahi hai” ….. then there was other carnatic singer who used to say “nam nisssssssssssssayeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee yeeeeee yeeeeeeeeee”….. heee heeeee …
hmmmm ….. those simple and happy days …… someone please bring them back to me …..
PS – this video re-affirms my believe also that India is not a place to live … but it is a place to travel & explore …..
we should not waste the biggest gift that god has given us … that we were born in INDIA ….
dont u think we are so lucky to be born in a country having such a diverse culture while most of us waste our life doing what we do and knowing what we know …..
