Genius of Jaidev – 29

At last, “Mere DHIRaj ka badla SuDHIR-ji ne de hi diya.”

For quite a long time I was ignorant about this song except its mention in HFGK. Sudhirji, not only searched out the song for me, but also posted it on ‘YouTube’ to save my labour. I am going to thank him further, when as per his promise, he is going to colour-code the lyrics.

“Putlibai” (1972), though a recent movie by the standards of this blog has been all but forgotten. If this movie is still remembered by afew music lovers then that is mainly because of a timeless qawwali that this movie contained.

KAPOOR Khandaan is called the First family of Bollywood, not for nothing !

There are some actors in Hindi movies who are so badly typedcast that it is rare to see or imagine them in roles different from the ones for which they are well known. For instance, Nimmi is perceived to be an actress who is always dealt a rough deal by the fate. Not just I, even some regulars are of the same view. For example, one regular, while sending me the lyrics of a song picturised on Nimmi informed me that he could detect a faint smile on Nimmi’s face in the pcturisation. I watched that song several times in super slow motion to witness the rare occurence.
