Hello Atuldom

She was a child star to start with, facing the camera for the first time, probably at the age of 8 or 9 in 1948. Her father was a successful actor-producer-director of his time, but his death at a young age had this Baby becoming a child actress so that she could support her family. I am referring to Master Vinayak Damodar Karnataki’s daughter Nanda Karnataki a.k.a Nanda.

She debuted as Baby Nanda in the 1948 release “Mandir”. Her first adult role was in “Toofan Aur Diya” in 1956 at the age of maybe 17. She had a long career where she acted with as a supporting roles of kid sister, second heroine etc before graduating to heroine roles in the 60s. She paired with Shashi Kapoor in 8 films when he was not yet a successful star. “Jab Jab Phool Khile” helped her have a image change and this was seen in later movies like “Joru Ka Ghulam” and “The Train” (both with Rajesh Khanna), “Abhilasha”, “Beti” opposite Sanjay Khan. She had a successful pairing with Jeetendra too in movies like “Dharti kahe pukaar ke”

This Video that I saw sometime ago on youtube has Tabassum, with whom Nanda had near parallel career and was friends till she passed away in 2014, giving us some insight into Nanda’s life.

I spent some time trying to get the right song to remember this beautiful leading lady of the 60s and 70s. And here is a song from a movie that released in 1973, one of her last as a leading lady, where she is opposite the Bengali actor Ranjit Mallick. One song from this movie has been posted on the blog in 2012.

“Naya Nasha” directed by Hari Dutt and produced by C.V.K. Shastry had Nanda, Ranjit Mallick, Madan Puri, etc. etc in its cast. Our personal encyclopedia has given us an idea of what the movie was about in the comments of the only song from this movie to have appeared on the blog. the movie had four songs here is the second on the sixth anniversary of Baby Nanda i.e. Nanda.


Song-Aao karen baaten (Naya Nasha)(1973) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Sapan Chakravorty

Lyrics

ae
aao karen baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
o o pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein
ae
aao karein baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein

aise kyun khoye ho o
rut suhaani mein ae ae
aise kyun khoye ho o
rut suhaani mein ae
phir kahaan ye mausam
iss jawaani mein
iss hawaa se
lag rahi hai
aag paani mein
ae
aao karein baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
oo pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein

hai milan ki ye bela aa
kab milan hoga aa aa
hai milan ki ye bela aa
kab milan hoga aa aa aa
dil tadap jaayenge ae
tab milan hoga
ab toh hamse
hans ke keh do
ab milan hoga
ae
aao kare baatein

oooo pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein
ae
aao karein baatein
aur baatein mulaaqaatein
pyaar ke din aaye
prem ki raatein aen

Here is the second song from “Annadaata”(1952) to appear in the blog. This was song is sung by Lata. Anjum Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohammad Shafi.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that the song was picturised on Veena. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Dil de bhi diya dil le bhi liya (Annadaata)(1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anjum Jaipuri, MD-Md Shafi

Lyrics

miley thhe dil magar ulfat ke geet gaa na sake
hansi labon pe rahi ee
aur muskura na sakey

dil de bhi diya
dil le bhi liya
dil de bhi diya
dil le bhi liya
ulfat ka sila hum paa bhi gaye
dil de bhi diya
dil le bhi liya

kaliyon ki tarah kuchh der khiley
kaliyon ki tarah kuchh der khiley
phoolon ki tarah murjha bhi gaye
murjha bhi gaye
dil de bhi diya
dil le bhi liya

ro ro ke sahi par jee lenge
ro ro ke sahi par jee lenge
ashqon ka zahar bhi pee lenge
ashqon ka zahar bhi pee lenge
chupke se tassli le lenge
tum yaad jo dil ko aa bhi gaye
haye aa bhi gaye
dil de bhi diya dil le bhi liya

chaandi si chamakti raaton mein
chsandi si chamakti rsaton mein
kya khoob tamasha tumne kiya
kya khoob tamasha tumne kiya
ek aas ka deep bujha bhi diya
ik gham ka deep jala bhi gaye
ho jala bhi gaye
dil de bhi diya
dil le bhi liya
dil de bhi diya
dil le bhi liya
ulfat ka sila hum paa hi gaye
dil de bhi diya
dil le bhi liya

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020)-Song No. 12
———————————————–

“Sunahri Naagin”(1963) was directed by Babubhai Mistry. The movie had Mahipal, Helen, Anwar, Pratibha, Sapru, Ulhas, Kamal Mehra, Ajit, Habib, Shyam Kumar, Ragini, Bir Sakuja, K N Singh, Sulochana, Tun Tun etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the earlier songs covered in the blog:-

Song Posted On
Been na bajaana jaadu na jagaanaa (Sunahri Naagin) 12 march 2010
Tu hi tu hai main dekhaa karoon (Sunahri Naagin) 14 march 2010
Chhedoge mujhko agar jaan ke (Sunahri Naagin) 16 march 2010
Mil ke bhi ham mil na sake (Sunahri Naagin) 3 june 2010
Main to ho gayi re badnaam (Sunahri Naagin) 16 july 2018

As can be noticed, this movie made its debut in the blog on 12 march 2010. Next two songs from the movie were discussed on 14 march 2010 and 16 march 2010. So, a song from this movie was covered on this day ten years ago !

So the movie becomes a candidate for Blog Ten year challenge !

Ten years ago, the daily output of the blog was as low as it is in the present. Nowadays we are plodding along at barely one song a day. Those days, barely one song or two a day were often punctuated by spells of DOT days.

The reason for such slow output was that I was transferred from Jabalpur to Nagpur (in december 2009) and the entire process took upto end of february 2010. During this time I was living a nomad’s life and posting articles was a struggle.

Nevertheless, I was on the verge of settling down, and I had started to post two songs daily by March 2010. Following two songs were covered on this day ten years ago:-

Song Posted On
Chhedoge mujhko agar jaan ke (Sunahri Naagin)(1963) 16 march 2010
Dil le ke jaate ho kahaan(O Tera Kya Kehna)(1959) 16 march 2010

“O Tera Kya Kehna”(1959) has since been YIPPEED in the blog.

Today, as part of “Blog Ten Year Challenge”, here is a synchronised dance song from “Sunahri Naagin”(1963). The song is sung by Lata and Kamal Barot. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandjui.

Resemblence of this song to “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” (Parasmani)(1963) is no coincidence. Both movies were directed by the same director (Babubhai Mistry) and written by the same screenplay writers (Pandit Madhur and Vishwanat Pandey). Both movies had Mahipal as the hero. This song in fact has the same tune. This song could be described as the equivalent song of “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” (Parasmani)(1963) in this movie. I am sure that Laxmikant Pyarelal were the composer of this tune (like that of “Parasmani”) as assistants to Kalyanji Anandji. Lyricist differs though. Here is in Indeewar. In “nooraani” song it was Asad Bhopali.

It is just a quirk of fate that “Hansta hua nooraani chehra” assumed cult status, while this song did not become that well known.

One of the dancers is Helen. I am unable to identify the other dancer. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors visible in the picturisation.

PS-Prakashchandra, our inhouse face recognition expert tells us that the dancers are Madhumati (Helen look alike) and Bela Bose. Occupants of the Raj darbaar throne are Anwar Hussain and Zeb Rahman (aka Preeti Bala).


Song-Yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye (Sunahri Naagin)(1963) Singers-Lata, Kamal Barot, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

yoon na akadiye
yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye
yooon na bigadiye ho ho
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye

chaahe jitna bacho
chaahe kitna daro
aji aankhon ka jaadu chalega
chaahe gussa karo chaahe shikwa karo
aji dil to kisi din jalega
aapka ye guroor koi kar dega choor
aapka ye guroor koi kar dega choor
hosh ud jaayega mere sarkaar ka
yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye

laakh tan ke chalo
laakh ban ke chalo

nazren to mil ke rahengi
honth daabe raho chaahe kuchh na kaho
aji aankhen to sab kuchh kahengi
oonche sar jhuk gaye
kaafile ruk gaye
oonche sar jhuk gaye
kaafile ruk gaye
jaadu dekha nahin aji deedaar ka
yoon na akadiye
yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye

aaj jiski ada nahin janchti zara
aji kal dil ko bhaane lagega
jiske haalaat par nahin karte nazar
aji pal bhar mein aane lagega
ye ajab hai jahaan sab hai mumkin yahaan
ye ajab hai jahaan sab hai mumkin yahaan
dil badalta hai pal bhar mein dildaar ka
yoon na akadiye yoon na bigadiye
naam bura takraar ka ho ho
kya jaane kab ho jaaye kisi se
koi pata nahin pyaar ka ho ho
yoon na akadiye

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 21
———————————————–

Ashapurna Devi (1909-1995) was a Bengali novelist who wrote more than 200 novels, over 2000 short stories and over 50 children’s books during her life time. It is to her credit that she could contribute so much to the Bengali literature despite being born in a very conservative Bengali joint family in which female members of the household were not allowed to attend school. For male members, private teachers were appointed who will teach them in their home. It is during this time, Ashapurna Devi learnt Bengali alphabets albeit clandestinely when her brothers were being taught in the house. She won many coveted literary awards including Jnanpith Award for her novel Prothom Protishruti (The First Promise) in 1976.

Many films have been made based on the novels and stories written by Ashapurna Devi. Some of them are ‘Agni Pariksha’ (Bangla, 1954), ‘Padikkathai Methai’ ( Tamil, 1960), ‘Chhaaya Surya’ (Bangla, 1963), ‘Mavana Magalu’ (Kannada, 1965), ‘Chhoti Si Mulaaqat’ (Hindi, 1967), ‘Baluchari’ (Bangla, 1968), ‘Prothom Protishruti’ (Bangla, 1971) ‘Anindita’ (Bangla, 1972), ‘Chaitali’ (Bangla, 1971 and Hindi, 1975), ‘Tapasya’ (Hindi, 1976), and ‘Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi’ (2008). The list is not exhaustive.

‘Chaitali’ (1971, Bangla film) was one of the films based on a story of the same name by Ashapurna Devi. The film was directed by Sudhir Mukherjee. The main cast included Biswajeet, Tanjua, Basanta Chowdhury, Jahar Ray, Tarun Kumar, Biren Chatterjee, Manmohan etc.

Although a few of Ashapurna Devi’s novels and short stories have been translated in English and published, I could not locate the story of Chaitali on-line. Probably, this story may be a part of the collections of her stories in Bangla only which I cannot read. The film is available on a video sharing platform in three parts without English sub-titles. So, my understanding of the story of the film is based the visuals and some Hindi dialogues given to the characters of Lajjo (Tanuja), Nawab Sahab (Basanta Chowdhury) and Kumar Sahab (Manmohan) in it.

The film starts with Amitabh, (Biswajit), an engineer travelling from his home town on transfer to his new place of work to oversee the construction of new road (The outdoor shooting of the place with hills and the snow-capped mountains appears to be somewhere between Siliguri and Darjeeling). He is taken to the site office and thereafter to his quarters with a caretaker attached to it. On the very first day, Kumar Sahab (Manmohan) who is not only one of the contractors for the road work but also a notorious local bully, visits the quarter to meet Amitabh. He refuses to meet him by saying that he would prefer official meetings in the site office only. This create the first friction between Kumar Sahab and Amitabh.

Lajjo (Tanuja), an orphaned girl from Hindi heartland stays with her tyrannical aunt in the neighborhoods of Amitabh’s quarters. Because, she has no one else to share her feelings, she finds solace in spending time in the house of an old man, Nawab Sahab (Basanta Chowdhury) who is her neighbour. Nawab Sahab is an admirer of Gurudev Rabindra Tagore’s works. He has taken the task of translating some of Tagore’s works in Urdu and Persians. He is also into music.

Lajjo is a milkmaid who supplies milk to Amitabh’s quarters in the morning. There is always some friction between Lajjo and the caretaker over the late supplies of milk or the quality of milk. But Amitabh always take a sympathetic disposition towards Lajjo whenever his caretaker complains against her. Sometime, Lajjo also does household works in the quarters. Over a period of time, Amitabh develops soft corner for her. He starts teaching her Bangla alphabets and conversation in Bangla which she picks up fast. This is not liked by Nawab Sahab and he gives subtle hint to Amitabh. So, now on, he keeps a distance with Lajjo.

Simultaneously, Amitabh has problems with the quality of road work done by Kumar. So, he postpones the payments of his bills for work done until he personally inspects the road. He also orders his staff to bring out old files pertaining to Kumar’s work. This creates panic for Kumar. He engages his henchmen to intercept Amitabh while on an inspection trip in the forest. However, due to heavy rains and landslides, he is not able to visit the place. In the quarters, the caretaker is worried as he thinks that Amitabh is caught in the landslides. After hearing this news, Laajo who has also kept a distance from Amitabh due to Nawab Sahab insistence, runs to search for him. She finds Amitabh safe in a tent. The meeting ignites their love for each other. They return home after the rains have subsided.

Having failed in an attempt to immobilise Amitabh and also to make his old files missing, Kumar plans a conspiracy in which he pays money to Lajjo’s aunt to facilitate her kidnapping. While going to fetch waters from the river, Lajjo gets kidnapped by his henchmen and blames Amitabh for it since both have been last seen together while returning from his inspection duty and both are missing since then. The fact is that Amitabh has gone to his hometown to meet his brother.

When Amitabh returns from home town, police arrests him on charge of kidnapping Lajjo. He is taken to the police station. However, before he is being questioned, Lajjo’s aunt under pressure from Nawab Sahab confesses her role in Lajjo’s kidnapping. She is arrested. Lajjo runs away from the kidnappers and reaches the police station to tell her side of the story. Amitabh is released and Lajjo comes back and visit Nawab Sahab’s house only to find that Kumar and his henchmen have cornered Nawab Sahab. In the scuffle between him and Kumar, Nawab Sahab gets seriously injured from the bullet fired by Kumar. Before, he could recapture Lajjo, police forces get hold of him and he is arrested. Nawab Sahab dies and Lajjo becomes once again an orphan with her aunt in the jail and Nawab Sahab dead. The film ends with Amitabh and Lajjo meeting at the burial ground who would now take care of her.

Many internet sites refer the Hindi version, ‘Chaitali’ (1975) produced under the banner of Bimal Roy Productions, as a remake of the Bangla version of the film. But it is not so. There are subtle differences between the two versions of the film. In Bangla version, the character of the hero is that of an Engineer who is posted on the site office to oversee the road construction work. In the Hindi version, the hero is a professor in the college and stays in a joint family. Secondly, the character of Lajjo (Chaitali) in Bangla version is different than in Hindi version in which she has been shown as a kleptomaniac and she get reformed after working with a loving joint family.

Rinki Bhattacharya, the daughter of Bimal Roy in a very recent interview (February 2020) has revealed that her father had planned the film with a title ‘Sahara’ based on Ashapurna Devi’s short story ‘Chaitali’ and some shots were filmed in early 1966 with Dharmendra and Sharmila Tagore. But he fell ill on the set from which he never recovered. After a gap of 8 years, the film was started afresh under the direction of Hrishikesh Mukherjee with the ‘Chaitali’ as the title of the film replacing Sharmila Tagore with Saira Banu. The film did not fare well on the box office.

In keeping with the Hindi speaking role of Chaitali, the Bangla version of the film had 3 Hindi songs out of 8 songs. I am presenting one of the two Lata solos, ‘paayal baaj gayi aaj meri laaj gayi’ which is written by Anand Bakshi. All the songs (Hindi and Bangla) in the film were set to music by S D Burman. The tune of the song appears to be based on a Nepali folk song to me.

It is interesting to note that after ‘Samar’ (1950, Bangla film), S D Burman had not composed songs in any Bangla films until ‘Chaitali’ (1971) and this film became his last Bangla film as well.

“Baazi”(1968), not to be confused with the well known “Baazi”(1951) was directed by Moni Bhattacharya for Golden Films Production, Bombay. The movie had Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Helen, Ansari, Nazir Hussain, Ullhas, Chans Usmani, Amar, Manmohan, Keshto Mukherjee, Pinchoo Kapoor etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

Here is the fifth and final song from “Baazi”(1968). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

This song is quite a remarkable song. It is picturised as a stage performance song on Helen and Waheeda Rehman. Helen plays evil queen and Waheeda Rehman her daughter. The evil queen regards herself as the prettiest female around and she would not hesitate to get prettier females killed, even if she happens to be her own daughter.

This is a very long song, more than ten minutes long. The picturisation also shows several small time actors as well.

I think that this song must be one of a kind for lyricist Shakeel Badayuni too. This must be one of the very few Helen dance songs for him.

Lata Mangeshkar had sung five female duets in the movies of 1968. Four of these duets are already covered in the blog. So, with this song, all the five female duets of Lata Mangeshkar from movies of 1968 are covered.

With this song, “Baazi”(1968) joins movies that have all their songs covered in the blog and the movie thus gets YIPPEED.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day : 4233 Post No. : 15443

It was the 94th Birth Anniversary of Late Khaiyyam yesterday (18 february 2020).

Born as Mohammed Zahur Khayyam Hashmi(18 February 1927 – 19 August 2019), he started his career as music director, as Sharmaji of duo of Sharmaji-Vermaji with Rehman Verma.

He passed away last year on 19th August 2019, after an illustrious career of more than 4 decades. As per the stats page, he has composed 377 songs in 42 movies, out of which 179 songs are already posted. My personal favourite songs list has to start with the songs of Rafi songs in ‘”Shola aur Shabnam” , include “Bazaar”, “Umrao Jaan”, “Shaam e gham ki Qasam”(Footpath), Rafi solo “hai kali kali ke lab par”, some songs of “Razia Sultan” especially the sehra “Aye khuda Shukr tera”, songs of ‘Kabhi Kabhi”, “bahaaron mera jeewan bhi sanwaaro” (Aakhri Khat) etc.

I cannot forget to mention two songs of “Shankar Husaain” both the unforgettable solos by Rafi and Lata Mangeshar. The list will go all the way to the songs of ‘Phir Subah hogi” . And “Simti hui ye ghadiyaan” of “Chambal Ki Qasam”. The song of “Khandaan” (ye Mulaquat ek bahana hai) and Rafi-Lata duet from “Chambal kiQasam” were special favourites at the All India Radio’s Urdu service afternoon show (Aap ki farmaish ).

From a layman point of view also the songs composed by Khaiyyam are always melodious and have a distinctive style of their own. I can call it almost a ‘Genre”, very similar to the style of “Jaidev”. Jaidev was an assistant to S. D. Burman, but I was able to find any references it Khaiyyam was an assistant to anyone. He may have been as the training is required here also as any other field.

He composed non film songs and ghazals also, almost 34 of which were sung by Mohammed Rafi.

As per Wikipedia :

“On his 89th birthday, Khayyam announced the formation of a charitable trust, Khayyam Jagjeet Kaur KPG Charitable Trust, and decided to donate his entire wealth to the trust to support budding artists and technicians in India. His wealth at the time of announcement was valued at around ₹10 crore (US$1.4 million)”

The song I have selected to present on this occasion is from the film ‘Bambai ki Billi”, alternatively named “Wild Cat”. How does “Bambai” translate of Wild in this instance, I can’t begin to decipher. The singer of this song is Lata Mangeshkar, with chorus. Lyricist is Hasrat Jaipuri, composer is the the one and only Khaiyyam.

The tune of the song is reminiscent of this song from “Kabhi Kabhi”.


Song-Main baaghon ki morni jab naachhon taa taa thaiyya (Bombay Ki Billi )(1960) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Khaiyyam
Chorus

Lyrics

Jab jab mori paayal baaje
Logan ka aa dil dhhadke
Dekh ke mori chhalbalwa ??
man mein bijuriyaa kadkey ae
ho o

Main baaghon ki morni
Jab naachun taa taa thhaiyya
Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se
Koyi bacha le daiyya
Haay re mori maiyya aa
Main baaghon ki morni
Jab naachoon taa taa thhaiyya
Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se
Koyi bacha le daiyya
Haay re mori maiyya hoye

Nain kateele aur sooratiyaa saanwri
hoye hoye hoye hoye hoye
Nain kateele aur sooratiyaa saanwri
Ho gayee main ko dekh ye duniyaa baawri
Hoye
Ho gayee main ko dekhye duniyaa baawri
Haay re ra rararara ra ra
Jinki batiyaan zeher bhari hain
Jaise koi kasaiyya
Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se
Koyi bacha le daiyya
Haay re mori maiyya hoye

Chaand bhi sharmaaye hai
Mere roop se
hoye hoye hoye hoye hoye
Chaand bhi sharmaaye hai
Mere roop se
Raat bhi din ban jaaye
Badan ki dhoop se
Hoy Raat bhi din ban jaaye
Badan ki dhoop se
Haay re la lalalara la la
Jin raston se chham chham jaaun
Taake mohe sipahiyaa
Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se
Koyi bacha le daiyya
Haay re mori maiyya hoye
tu baaghon ki morni
Jab naache taa taa thhaiyya
Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se
Koyi bacha le daiyya

baal ye kaale
Pyaar se paale naag hain
hoye hoye hoye hoye hoye
baal ye kaale
Pyaar se paale naag hain
Haathh badha ke chhoo na lenaa
aag hain
hoye
Haathh badha ke Chhoo na lenaa
aag hain
Haay re ra rararara ra ra
Man ki been bajaaun jab jab
Jhoome prem kanhaiyya
Dilwaalon ki julmi najar se
Koyi bacha le daiyya
Haay re mori maiyya hoye

Blog Day :

4228 Post No. : 15437 Movie Count :

As valentine day party songs go, this one is not really so big on the event. Except for the heart shaped balloons, there is no other indication of this being a valentine day song. Point to be noted is that, the blog seems to have ignored this occasion also, along with a host of other days that are specifically designated throughout the year. Whatsapp university does a quite adequate job of reminding us of all these days, be it mother’s day, father’s day, couple day, hug day, chocolate day to name a few. These are just the days which came readily to mind, because a few of them were during this past week.

I remembered this song today just out of the blue from the film “Dil to paagal hai”. I remember seeing this film in theatre, must be in 1997. My elder sister was very fond of Yash Chopra films and the star cast was, as it is very much ascending stars of the era. Nevertheless I remember at one point in the film, where I told my sister that I don’t want to see this film and we are leaving. Which point I don’t care to share here.

This song talking of ‘Chaand’ & ‘Raat’ is actually compliant with my posts series titled ‘Chaandni Raatien”. Composer is Uttam Singh and the lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. It is picturized on Shah Rukh Khan, Karishma Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit. Shah Rukh and Karishma are at a Valentine Day party, whereas Madhuri Dixit is at her home, dreaming and singing along. At this point I think Shah Rukh and Madhuri haven’t met each other, but are scheduled to meet and fall in love. This song is in anticipation of the things to come in the story, because you see they have read the script and the song was ready, so the situation had to be created for it. Udit Narayan sings for Shah Rukh and Lata Mangeshkar is singing for Madhuri and Karishma both. The song is very catchy too despite being a mood song.

The film is full of melodious hit songs which were a rage then. Film and the songs won quite a few awards too. This song is having the tunes of other songs from the same film, as interlude. Again as I said the characters are anticipating the songs to feature in the film later on. Good imagination all around.
