Chingari Koi Bhadke – everyone’s favorite

In my humble opinion, Anand Bakshi made cinematic history with this iconic song for Amar Prem (1972).  Add Kishore Kumar and Rahul Dev Burman. Bring on Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila Tagore. What about Shakti Samanta, the director… he holds a high position… they all do, none smaller or larger than the other. Wow…

No doubt, it is every music fan’s favorite… okay, that may be a stretch, but anyone who enjoys good lyrics in Hindi cinema songs would listen to this song over and over again. Reams have been written perhaps on this song alone, so I shan’t elaborate. Besides, Anand Bakshi’s songs don’t need any explanation. Certainly not on a blog post being written decades after this song made waves…

You will even hear a reference to Sita… what do you make of that? Fact of life?
