Duets I Fancy

Several songs in Bollywood (Hindi films) are great for lyrics, music, or both. This is just a short list of a few duets that I like.

Mere meet bata tujhe mujhse kab pyar hua aur kaise..a vague film called Putlibai, but what a song!

Tum mile pyar se mujhe jeena gawara hua..from Feroz Khan-Mumtaz starrer Apradh.

From Mahal, a Dev Anand-Asha Parekh film, this lovely duet- Aankhon aankhon mein hum tum ho gaye deewane,..a slow, melodious tune that grows on you..

Are yaar meri yum bhi ho ghazab ghhonghat to zara odho..from Teen Deviyaan, starring Dev Anand and Kalpana. Has a unique tune, in a conversational style.

Chalti Ka Naam Gadi- the ultimate pair of Madhubala and Kishore Kumar - Haal kaisa hai janaab ka, kya khayal hai aap ka? Awesome.

Abhilasha is the film, and Sanjay Khan-Nanda the unlikely pairing. But the song is fabulous- Pyar hua hai jab se. mujhko nahin chain aata...

Piya piya piya mora jiya pukaare- from Baap re Baap. Kishore Kumar yodels to perfection on an OP Nayyar tune.

Naya Andaz- the film. The song Meri neendon mein tum mere khwabon mein tum has a dreamy quality. It is unique because Shamshad Begum is the female singer, with Kishore Kumar. They haven't sung many together.

Tu laali hai savere wali gagan rang de tu mere man ka..Incredibly, this song stars Danny and Jaya Bhaduri. Film Abhi to Jee Lein

Koi mane ya na mane jo kal tak the anjaane woh aaj hamein jaan se bhi pyare ho gaye- from the film Adhikaar.

Achhi nahin sanam dillagi dil-e beqaraar se..from the film Rakhi aur Hathkadi. Vijay Arora had this great song with Asha Parekh.

Waada karo jaanam na chhodoge yeh daaman zamaana chahe chhoote..Vinod Mehra sings this with Maushumi in Sabse Bada Rupaiah.

Of course, there are many more..

Vajpayee - An Obituary

Rarely do you see a politician who does not answer to the image that most have carved out for themselves. He was one. Can't really thin...
