VALENTINE WEEK SPECIAL-5.
MY KIND EXPRESSING LOVE!
- Manoj Kulkarni
|Rajendra Kumar in song "Ae husn zara."|
This is a song from one of my top most favourite romantic movies with Urdu Shayaari..'Mere Mehboob' (1963)..the love expressed with shayaarana andaz in it is like the way of expressing love in our Indian style..rather my kind of expressing love!
|.Ameeta, H.S. Rawail & Sadhana on set of 'Mere Mehboob' (1963).|
In this jubilee star Rajendra Kumar and (Indian Audry Hepburn) beautiful Sadhana performed the romantic lead..Anwar and Husna in requied Luckhanavi nazaakat with Ashok Kumar as Nawab Buland Akhtar and others Nimmi (Anwar's sister Najma), Ameeta (Husna's cousin Naseem) and Pran & Johney Walker in their fixed roles!
"Mere Mehboob tujhe.."
|Rajendra Kumar.."Mere Mehboob.."|
Apart from this famous Art Director Sudhendu Roy created the Luckhanavi shayarana mahol nicely for the romantic song sequences like in first mentioned piano song and when Anwar expressed his love to Husna in song "Tumse Izhar-E-Haal Kar Baithe." In such scenes romantic andaaz of Rajendra Kumar & Sadhana was beautiful with Hindustani tehzeeb!

Naushad, Mohammed Rafi & Shakeel Badayuni.
This film became a big hit! After this H. S. Rawail made two such hit romantic films with same genre..'Mehboob Ki Mehndi' (1971) with Rajesh Khanna & Leena Chandavarkar and 'Laila Majnu' (1976) with Rishi Kapoor & Ranjeeta! Both also got big success!

This film became all time favourite of lovers who are such romantic..Whenever I hear it's title song "Mere Mehboob tujhe.." or "Ae Husn zaraa.." I feel nostalgic with lovely memories..and imagine making love in that shayaraana andaaz!!
