Music In The Mountains: Is Mod Se Jaate Hain

It has been a long time since I updated this blog. Now starting with a fresh theme: Music In The Mountains. The idea is to enjoy melodious songs that have been shot in mountainous locations. Along with mountains, we will also get views of gurgling streams, luxurious valleys, flocks of sheep, towering conifers, snow-clad peaks, spectacular gardens, and colourful flowers. So, get ready for some wonderful audio-visual treats in the days to come!

The first song to appear in this series is a superb duet from "Aandhi" (1975). This is an important film of its time. It is a political drama showcasing the trials and tribulations of a married couple where the wife is a career politician and the husband is a hotel manager. Suchitra Sen and Sanjeev Kumar play the lead couple. This was Suchitra Sen's last Hindi film. Vyjayanthimala was offered this role in the beginning, but she turned it down. 


Gulzar is the director, screenplay writer (with Bhushan Banmali) and lyricist, which makes this a sensitively handled, beautiful and meaningful film. The duet being featured today is supposed to have been shot in Pahalgam, Kashmir.

Singers: Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar
Lyrics: Gulzar
Music: R. D. Burman
