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!

Costume Drama: Chhadi Re Chhadi

We have had various items of clothing featuring in our theme so far. Some new items are set to appear from today onwards that are not clothes, but still are a part of one's costume. Of course, the earlier ones will continue to appear too.

Enjoy a duet from "Mausam" (1975) today. It is inspired by A. J. Cronin's novel, "The Judas Tree". The film was adorned with a good story, superb direction, lovely music and excellent performances by Sanjeev Kumar and Sharmila Tagore. The Silver Lotus Award at the 23rd National Film Festival was conferred on Sharmila Tagore who played dual roles of mother and daughter in this film very competently.

Singers: Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammad Rafi
Lyrics: Gulzar
Music: Madan Mohan
