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: Mere Lehenge Mein Ghungaroo Laga De

A duet from "Basant" (1960) today. Nutan and Shammi Kapoor starred in this story of a rich spoilt heiress. Nutan looks lovely and the film offers several duets, none of them very well-known though. The opening words of Mere pairon mein ghungaroo bandha de from "Sunghursh" which released in 1968 are very similar to those of this song. A mere coincidence?

Singers: Asha Bhosle, Mohammad Rafi
Lyrics: Qamar Jalalabadi
Music: O. P. Nayyar
