In this blog I dream of the day when we will cover so many songs that our readers will struggle to give me the farmaish for undiscussed songs.:) Considering the number of songs that are not yet discussed in the blog, that day is far off. But there are very few cases where we have reached that stage already. For instance, we have covered all the available Hindi film/ non film songs of K L Saigal and there are no K L Saigal left to be covered. Similar is the case more or less for the songs of Sajjad Hussain too.

“Dostana” (1980) was produced by Yash Johar and directed by Raj Khosla. The movie had Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Zeenat Aman, Prem Chopra, Amrish Puri, Helen, Pran, Paintal etc in it. Another movie with a copycat title was Rakesh Kumar’s “Yaarana” (1981), also starring Amitabh Bachchan.

When I was growing us in late 1960s and 1970s, I was only aware of a few festivals when we had holidays. There were days like Holi, Deewaali, Raksha Bandhan,Durga Puja (Dashara), Id, Chrishmas etc. Then there were a few days thaat were known as days, viz Children’s day (Jawaharlal Nehru’s bithday), Teacher’s day (Radhakrishnan’s birthday) etc.

We in India seem to have one festival or the other almost on a daily basis, which is natural seeing how many religions, regions and Gods we have. Similarly, we in this blog seems to have anniversaries almost on a basis, which is natural seeing how many people have contributed in the makings of the songs that we in this blog discuss.

Here is a qawwali not for “how did I forget…..” category, but to wish Pran , a most respectful, loved by all generations of Hindi Cinema, a nice human being and the best character actor that our hindi film industry has ever produced, a Happy 92nd Birthday on Feb 12th, from all of us.

“Sholay” was a movie known for its dialogues and for its thrill a minute storyline, but it had some songs too, in case anyone noticed. And these songs too gelled well with the storyline. And come to think of it, Sholay had a dosti song, a holi song, a Helen song, a teasing song- in short, songs of different genres that were considered a must in any masala bollywood movies were very much there in Sholay.

“Dosti” (1964) was a Rajshri production movie that had an idealistic and moralistic storyline. But the movie is today known for its music. Just about every song ( most of them Rafi solos) went on to become immortal songs. It is difficult to pick the best of them, and I advise that one should avoid the temptation to rank them, and instead one should just enjoy listening to them.

I just expounded on my theory that Amitabh Bachchan tended to have quite a few “friendship” songs in his movies. In fact, the title of two of his movies themselves were friendship based- viz “Dostana” and “Yaraana”, both meaning “friendship”. Of course, there were “friendship” songs even in those Amitabh movies whose titles were different- viz in movies like “Zanjeer”, “Hera Pheri”,”Ram Balram” etc.

Amitabh Bachchan movies in 1970s tended to have quite a few songs about friendships. In fact, I can readily count 4-5 such songs off the cuff – from Zanjeer, Sholay etc. In fact, two of his movies containing such songs had their titles like “Yaaraana” and “Dostana”. ;) Another actor “specialising” in movies with such titles was Shatrughan Sinha, who in addition to figuring in “Dostana” was there in “Dost” as well.
