My cure for sadness!

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!
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.
Mehmood (The Music Teacher)
Saira Banu (The Heroine)
Sunil Dutt (The Hero)


Kishore Kumar (The singer as well as playing the role of uncle)
Here’s the link! And fortunately, I could find the video with subtitles for those who doesn’t understand Hindi language.

same song with better video quality without subtitles

  2. My cure for sadness will be firstly to acknowledge my emotions without judging myself for them. It’s easy to think, “This isn’t a big deal, why am I so sad about it?” Instead, I accept my emotions for what they are. This helps me manage them.

    Secondly I make sure I distract myself from ruminating over my sadness. Say like, I go for trips or volunteer at an adventure club or an NGO. Amidst all these, I try to know what’s causing the grief.

    Been ages since I have listened to that song lol. Still drives me crazy :D..
