A nice dance from Teesri Kasam (1966) – which dance, like the scene in my previous post, is from the tragic love story of Laila and Majnu. I think this might be my favorite of the Waheeda Rehman dance scenes in this film.
A while back, I posted a clip from a 1949 Telugu version of Laila Majnu which featured one of the earliest film appearances of Padmini. Unfortunately, that was removed.
There’s a 1976 film of Laila Majnu, but I’m just not as crazy about the clips that I saw from that. (I guess that makes sense, considering my biases. But maybe it will grow on me.)
I think there are a couple more out there – one made in 1953, for instance.
Of course, Teesri Kasam is not Laila Majnu. And considering how Teesri Kasam finally turns out, the inclusion of a scene from that extremely romantic story of inescapable and fatal love might even be considered ironic.
