Today’s song is from the film Abhimaan-1973.

It is not that I write only about films and music of the period from 1930s to 1960s. Though that is my first love and also my forte, I believe that Amitabh’s films of the 70s and 80s are in a league of their own. Like millions of his fans, I too was an ardent fan of Amitabh Bachchan for his pre-1984 films. My most favourite film of Amitabh Bachchan is Trishool-78. In those days, I had bought the VCR cassette of Trishool and watched the film repeatedly on it,till my wife and daughters got sick of it and staged a mutiny against me. After the VCR became obsolete, I sold it at just Rs. 100 and also disposed off all the video cassettes-except Trishool. It is still with me, as useless as anything can be and occupying a space in the cabinet. It carries a sentimental value for me. Though I can not play it anymore, arting with it is out of question. Incidentally I do not have VCD of this or for that matter of any other film.

Here is another song from the film “Laila Majnu”. This is also a Lata-Rafi duet, composed by Madan Mohan. Lyrcist is Saahir Ludhianvi. This must be the most popular song from the film. And for once the songs composed by Madan Mohan were more to the tastes of the masses rather than the classes. This may have been in accordance with the theme and setting of the film, this being a period film, if not historical. Even if this is the sixth song to appear in the blog, the songs of the film are not yet done. There are three more songs that remain to be discussed.

One of the most lovable category of songs are those that I call “mental massage” category. These are basically sweet, melodious songs with simple lyrics and minimal music that do not tax one’s mental faculties and make one feel relaxed .
