“Khoobsoorat Haseena” – wrote Anand Bakshi

“Khoobsoorat Haseena” – wrote Anand Bakshi, for Mr X in Bombay (1964).

Now, who’s Mr. X. Was it Kishore Kumar, the hero in the film, co-starring with the lovely Kum Kum?

The playback voice is also Kishore da’s for Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s most adorable composition in the early days of their career after striking out together on their own, out of the shadow of their mentors. Their equation with Anand Bakshi would prove to be very fruitful, as time would tell.

Bruce Willis in Fifth Element (1997); and even Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) fantasy  is no match to this one, I daresay. 😉
