The love for music is universal. Almost everybody likes some form of music. Over the years, I have loved a lot of songs. Somewhere down the road, many of these songs have become hits. I don’t have a favorite song as such but I have a whole list. Being a hit means that a song is loved by many people. Also it means that it is heard more number of times than normal. I have found myself falling out of love to these overplayed songs so much so that I wished they had never become such a hit.
And there are some songs which never become hit for some reason of the other. The lyrics are good, the song is good, the singer has sung it well but then it does not work with the people. Over a period of time, it gets lost in time somewhere and when you hear it once in a blue moon, its bliss. These songs could have been hits and for some reasons, they never were or they did not enjoy the success that they deserved.
This is about those songs;
The Bhoole bisare Geet, The lost songs!
“Rules: Pyar ka Superhit Formula” was quite a sweet movie. It was about the common problem most of us faced, getting noticed, especially getting noticed by the one you love. It was quite a feel-good movie about a simple girl who takes her grandmother’s advice and follows a set of rules and makes her prince charming fall for her. The hero was Milind Soman and the heroine was the beautiful Meera Vasudevan. Even after being appreciated, she did not appear in many movies until I saw her playing housewife to Mohanlal in the brilliant “Thanmatra”. It had the evergreen Tanuja playing the all-knowing grandmother.
In spite of absence of big star, the film was well appreciated by many. It did well at the box office too. It was quite similar to “Chupke Se”, another feel-good movie released almost the same time. Both the movies did not have big stars but had good music. “Rules” had many good song and each one is quite good in itself. Picking up any song from the movie would be unfair to the other songs in the movie but still I will try.
I liked “Uljhano Ko De Diya” sung by Sanjevini and KK. It had quite a naughty feel to it. With minimal music and excellent lyrics and really good singers, this song becomes quite special. The way it was shot where the heroine imagining the hero by her side and singing with her. She is madly in love with him and she imagines him everywhere near her. Unlike the dream sequence filmed in most Hindi movies, she imagines the hero to be in the real world. Even when she imagines him on a horse, he is riding the streets of Mumbai.
The lyrics are just not rhyming but quite good poetry.
