I have felt like writing after many days. Many reasons for the long absence. But I just had to write when I remembered this particular song. First because of the unusual pairing –Rajesh Khanna Reena Roy, second I found that this was a different Naushad song ( I do not know if he has given music to any Rajesh Khanna movie. IMDB says this is the only one) And then lastly it was very popular during my growing up years.

This song is from the film ‘Raaz’, the year is 1967. It is a duet by Mohammed Rafi and Krishna Kalle. It is picturized on the hero Rajesh Khanna and heroine Babita. The composer is the duo Kalyanji Anandji and lyricist is Akhtar Romani. There are two unknown or should I say less known persons connected with this song. The female playback singer and the lyricist. I would have identified Krishna Kalle with the song “meri hasraton ki duniyaa” which is a duet with Rafi from the film “Gaal gulaabi nain sharaabi”, but that was before I heard this duet song from ‘Raaz’. This must be the high point and defining moment in her career where she is getting to sing a song for an ‘A’ grade MD, heroine and Film. This film has a very well known song which is posted here.

The regular visitors to this blog must have noticed that we are seeing more Asha Bhosle songs posted in the blog nowadays than anybody else’s. The reason is that she is heading towards reaching a milestone figure of 1000 songs in the blog. I have been remiss in writing post of Asha Bhosle songs. Let me rectify this. The song I have chosen is my personal favourite. Asha Bhonsle’s solos from “Sujata” and “Bandini” under S D Burman, are a treasure which I knew from early days.

Looking at the video of this song adds considerably to my general knowledge about movies. For example, I was not aware that Rajesh Khanna had worked in a movie called “Aurat”(1967) and that too opposite an actress as obscure as Naazima. But then Rajesh Khanna himself was a newcomer those days.

“Chhoti Bahu” (1971) is a movie that had Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore in it. I have not seen this movie so I have no idea about the story of this movie, though the title indicated that the movie may have something to do with ladies making sacrifices for the family honour etc.

Till 1974-75, when Rajesh Khanna’s movies began losing their appeal (for me at least), I was happy to watch any Rajesh movie for him alone. There was almost always at least one good song to enjoy in the movie. And very often more than one.
