Rasik Balamaa – Hasrat Jaipuri, ‘King of Romance’

What a grand song. Shankar-Jaikishan’s exquisite composition, Lata Mangeshkar’s melodious voice, high notes or low… and Hasrat Jaipuri’s lyrics. Splendid!

Chori Chori (1956)… this song creeps into the listener’s heart and head… and is lodged forever.

Nargis, elegant… in western attire… but this song has a distinctly desi flavor. Does the sitar have this effect, I wonder.
