Mention "Roop Tera Mastana" & the first thing that comes to mind is the romantic song from Aradhana. Why? Google "Roop Tera" & it is inundated with the Kishore chartbuster. A movie by a similar name was also released in 1972 & it had some great songs like this rare Rafi track (the dashing Jeetendra & gorgeous Mumtaz scene as romantic or perhaps, even more than that of Rajesh Khanna-Sharmila Tagore). There is another poetic track "Bade Bewafa" by Rafi again & the drooling Kishore-Lata duet "Dil Ki Batein" from this movie. I remember my late father buying/ bringing home the cassette tape (this film on side A & another film of the same year on side B) when I was in Grade 2 or so. If I am still not proficient in Hindi, then one can imagine the condition way back in 1972. Neither did I know that it was a romantic scene then. I just loved the music when the tape played & the way Rafi sang this-awesome. Some imprints can never be erased even if you wanted to & that's what music that is appealing to your ears & heart does. Thank you in advance to fellow listeners.
