Yeh Raat Bheegi Bheegi – Awara
Chori Chori has been one of my favorite movies of all time. This in my estimation is one of the unparalleled prodigious musical virtuosos who composed ever-lasting soulful melodies. It is music that will always be unforgettable and will linger imprinted in our memories incessantly.
They were very down to earth and welcomed all of their admirers with a lot of unpretentiousness and fondness. Despite their frantic timetable comprising meetings with singers, creators, and so on. They guaranteed that supporters such as me were entertained. Being a passionate fan, I used to be present at their sessions as often as was possible, which would on many evenings run into the small hours of the morning. Here’s one example of their sheer greatness. ‘Bobby’ which was released in 1973 featured the song ‘Na mango sona chandi’ which became a gigantic hit song at that time. But this melody was written almost 20 years previously. This musical duo and can be heard in unison while Nargis did the bathing scene in the movie Awara in 1952, that was a fantastic film and also very memorable too. The instrumental version of the song ‘O Basanti Pawan Pagal’ can be heard in the movie Awara. Such was their individuality and uniqueness that tunes were composed way before lyrics were transcribed. Awara was a springboard for man of our greatest Indian songs of all-time. Please see Awara clips on other posts on this Awara site.
