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!

Garden Of Five Senses: Ek Ladki Ko Dekha

Great lyrics, superb music (R. D. Burman's last work) and lovely visuals shot in scenic hilly locales. That is what today's song is all about. This solo from "1942: A Love Story " (1994) is one of Javed Akhtar's best. It brought him the Filmfare Award for Best Lyricist. Kumar Sanu bagged it for Best Male Playback Singer.

According to trivia, this song was written keeping Madhuri Dixit in mind, as she was supposed to play the female lead. But for some reason, it went to Manisha Koirala. In an earlier series "Her Story", I have posted "Pyaar hua chupke se " featuring her.

Singer: Kumar Sanu
Lyrics: Javed Akhtar
Music: R. D. Burman
