Not being a speaker of Hindi, I know that I miss a great deal of nuance in both song and storyline in not understanding the lyrics to Hindi film songs. I am sure that is the case here too, but all the same the picturization of this song is so packed with information that for once I don’t really feel that deprived. His trademark lack of subtlety is one of Manmohan Desai’s greatest gifts to non-Indian fans of Hindi cinema, as is his trademark lunacy to all of mankind. An abundance of both mark this song as one of my favorites.

Atul is aware that this particular cabaret song and dance is one of my favorites, performed by the very lithe and graceful Faryal. It contains most of the peculiarly Indian cabaret traits that make me love them so: male background dancers, a fake Sheikh or two, a Boss lurking in silhouette, and a lively band clad in frilly outfits. So how perfect for it to be the 4700th song posted on this brilliant blog!

This song is not your regular boy meeting the girl and running around the trees song. That stage is over, at least as far as Rajendranath and Madhavi are concerned. Yes, they have got married and this song takes place on the occasion of their wedding reception.

I am very honored indeed to have been asked by Atul to write about this song from the film “Gumnaam.” It is song number 2800 on this blog and I think he has chosen well in representing such a big number (although I am amazed that it’s not been put up here earlier!).

(This song review is by Greta (Memsaab) who recently reviewed this movie in her blog.)

I had no idea when I first saw and heard this enchanting song a week ago that it is an integral part of Indian childhood. In the wake of my movie review, many people commented that they knew and loved the song but hadn’t known that it was a film song. Not only is the music beautiful (I’m still singing the refrain over and over), but the picturization of it is sublime. I had to rewind and watch the song two or three times before I could move on to the rest of the film.
