For this set of songs, I am confined to the decade of 1960s, and some from 1970. This song is from the 1972 film ‘Anokha Daan’. Simply hard to believe that it is more than four decades that this film was released. The film itself was hard to trace for many years, and was in demand, on account of its music. Now, the film and its songs are easily accessible online.

It would be a very tough job, to find a Mukesh song that one could say “naah, not worth the listen”. What maybe would seem lacking in numbers is more than made up by simply the quality of sound and the eminence of rendering.

In most Hindi movies, the actors lead reel lives that has little resemblence to real life of normal people. And it was widely believed (and the myths are further perpetuated by people) that movie watchers used movies to live their fantasies and so they wanted to relive their fantasies in the movies instead of being reminded of their day to day life. And that explained the larger than life characters in Hindi movies.
