Her Story: Tying The Knot! - 1

Weddings are grand affairs. I will be posting some wedding songs in the days to come. When it comes to a wedding in the family, we Indians tend to go overboard. Hindi films are no different. The ceremony has been portrayed in so many films, in so many different ways, that I have a lot to choose from. The songs that I have picked are representative of what goes on during an Indian wedding, and they are not in any particular order. There could be an overlap or repetition of some of the rituals. But, it sure is going to be fun. So, be a part of the celebrations and enjoy the next few posts.

Today's song is from the classic dacoit-drama "Mujhe Jeene Do" (1963). This is a beautiful song and the wedding is taking place in Waheeda Rehman's imagination.

Trivia: The film was shot in Chambal valley in the Bhind-Morena region of Madhya Pradesh under police protection. It was a huge success. It was India's official entry at the 1964 Cannes Film Festival.
