Hadn't sung for a long time but last night when I was watching a clip of this song on TV I thought to myself why I never covered this song before despite the fact that it is one among my most favorite Talat Mehmood songs, whose lyrics I still remember by heart today. So I searched a track, which I found was prepared very differently and quite fast in tempo but the elements of the original melody were intact. This is a quick recording/mixing. I sang with how I had retained this melody in my memories but off-course adjusting myself to this tempo.
People talk about the great actors of Hindi cinema but I always felt the songs contained in the films made the actors popular. You may have heard of flop films but never about a flop song. For a person like me who had access to Hindi films much later in life but these songs could be heard on radio back in the 50's and 60's and there was no shortage of imagining the circumstances that were beautifully covered in song's poetry and melody. Kudos to the musicians. Hope you like this song.
