Have a story to tell? A theme to work on? An emotion to express? A mood to paint? Easy. You can do all this and more with Hindi film songs. For musical stories or theme-based songs or lyrical expressions of moods or...whatever, this promises to be a fun-filled ride. Come, get on the bandwagon!

Her Story: With You, Always! - 1

The two are now sure that they want to spend the rest of their lives with each other. They are expressing this emotion very beautifully in a duet from "Goonj Uthi Shehnai" (1959). With the strong bond and chemistry between them, their wedding (to each other!) is now somewhere on the horizon.

Trivia: This film tells the story of a shehnai player. The shehnai pieces featured in the film are played by none other than Ustad Bismillah Khan. It has the distinction of being the only Hindi film that was adorned with the maestro's divine music. It also features a jugalbandi between him and sitar player Abdul Halim Jaffar Khan, and some renderings in the voice of Ustad Amir Khan.

This was the first big hit starring Rajendra Kumar. He became very popular later. There were times when many of his films were running in their silver jubilee week at the same time. He earned the moniker of "Jubilee Kumar" because of this.
