Music In The Mountains: Oonche Himalay Ke Neeche

If you are compiling Hindi film songs shot in the mountains, you cannot miss the ones from "Himalay Ki God Mein" (1965). The title of the film says it all! Not only are the songs great, but the story is very good also; and with a social message. No wonder it won the award for Best Film, and was nominated in several other categories.

Manoj Kumar plays the role of a conscientious doctor who chooses to live in a Himalayan village and take care of local people who do not have proper medical facilities. Mala Sinha is a sweet young woman from the village, while Shashikala is Manoj Kumar's fiancee from the city who is a doctor too. Predictable story, but beautiful location, excellent music, able direction and competent cast ensured that the film would be a super-hit.

Singer: Lata Mangeshkar
Lyrics: Anand Bakshi
Music: Kalyanji Anandji
