My cure for sadness is a listen to this song. It is a sure-shot remedy to break the straight line of any stiff upper lip into a smile, if not laughter! It’s an old Bollywood song from the movie Padosan. The song has been sung by my favorite singer Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey!
ABOUT THE SONG…
To outwit the hero (Sunil Dutt) who had earlier belted a nice romantic number but then had started acting smart, the heroine (Saira Banu)- still smarting from the insult, brings in her music teacher- Mehmood, and she challenges the hero to do a musical duel with him! The only hitch is the hero is as off-key as it gets and the earlier impressive song he had ‘sung’ was actually ‘playbacked’ by his uncle- a paan-chewing Kishore Kumar from behind! So now the hero has to keep the bearing of their playback singing trickery and still overcome the musical challenge to score points in the heroine’s book.
Here’s the link! And fortunately, I could find the video with subtitles for those who doesn’t understand Hindi language.
Did you like the song? What’s your cure for sadness? Do share it with me!
