Many months ago, when this was a very different blog, when I already was watching a whole lot of clips from old Indian movies but still rarely posting them… I stumbled upon a song that really got stuck in my head at the time. I also found the scene that went along with it to be very sweet and captivating. But I wasn’t sure when I would post it to the blog (since I wasn’t posting a whole lot of Indian movie clips back then), and I forgot to store this one in any way, and I lost it.
I tried for the longest time to remember what the scene was from, and for some reason I just couldn’t find it. (These days, I would have instantly remembered more clues re. actors, singer, etc. – my education of these matters has advanced dramatically in the course of a year, mainly due to my highly obsessive Bollywood addiction. But I don’t think I remembered much of that stuff when I watched this clip back then.)
Yesterday morning, however, I got a note from one of my few regular readers out there (whose YouTube site I also used to visit frequently, back when it was up), in which he recommended the movie Teesri Kasam. So, curious, I went to see what clips out of that might be on YouTube and, lo and behold, I found the scene at last!
It is a really sweet song, isn’t it?
(Made in 1966… Vocals by Asha Bhosle (and some kids?), music director Shankar Jaikishan, actors Raj Kapoor and Waheeda Rehman, director Basu Bhattacharya.)
