An evening to remember…

Zee Classic is the latest addiction to my list. All my fav old hindi movies are coming in this and so another chance for me, to see them all again. 🙂

And so one evening, the TV found itself being surrounded by three girls, watching the classic “An Evening in Paris” !!!

While the Mommy was all praise for the songs, the location, the Sharmila’s beauty and all….the two little girls watched their mom in awe and wonder – Has she become a child again, was their questionable gaze !!!

Whether it is

aasmaan se aaya farishta

pyaar ka sabak sikhlaane

dil mein hai tasveer yaar ki

laya hoon woh dikhlaane (2)

kaho pyaar hai tumse

Sharmila: ja ja

o jaana kaho pyaar hai tumse

Sharmila: ja ja ja


Or the evergreen melody

Akele Akele Kahan Ja Rahe Ho

Hamein Saath Lelo Jahan Ja Rahe Ho

Koi Mitt Raha Hai

Tumhe Kuch Pata Hai

Tumhara Hua Hai

Tumhe Kuch Pata Hai

Yeh Kya Majra Hai

Tumhe Kuch Pata Hai

Akeke Akele Kahan Ja Rahe Ho …


Or the passionate love song

F: Raat ke hamsafar, thak ke ghar ko chale

Jhoomti aa rahi hai subah pyaar ki

M: Dekh kar saamne, roop ki roshani

Phir luti ja rahi hai subah pyaar ki


It was a delight to watch the couple on-screen and listen to the songs – brought back nostalgic moments of my childhood viewing of this movie. 🙂

While the elder one was absolutely stunned at the occurrence of songs, more than the dialogues…the younger one was totally glued to the screen.

The Mom was wondering when did these girls become interested in watching old Hindi hits !!! 😉 The movie got over and as I was stretching myself and feeling the happiness of a good movie watched without disturbance, the younger one observed,

“Hey, this movie is damn good, dude.”

“Really ???? You like it, huh !! I didn’t think that u like old movies…. ;)”

“But this is certainly better than the Chandni Chowk to China, which also has double action lady lead – one good and the other bad.”

It was a total LOL moment for me…. 😀 😀 😀 😀

    Hahahaha good observation! Those movies were not slick, but were better than nonsensical movies like Chandni Chowk


    • UmaS says:

      Oh…the old ones are my fav, Ritu….they do look silly in some places, but certainly and definitely better than today’s stupid flicks…. 🙂

      And the more hype created for movies, before release, the more they flop at BO. 😉


  2. Scorpria says:

    Any movie will be better than Chandni Chowk to China 😀

    Good that you had a nice time watching an ooold hindi movie with two youngsters by your side 😉

  8. ha well, I don’t understand enough of hindi to watch these movies…but old movies are really good(seen a few tamil ones), way better than the trash they come up with now days…


  9. Smitha says:

    LOL @ the younger one’s observation 🙂

    And those old movies have a charm of their own! Or is it just us 🙂 Either way, I could watch them again instead of some of the junk that gets made these days 🙂


  10. Garima says:

  11. Harini says:

  18. DI says:

    Ah! Bad comparison! While I am sure this movie was good, it is unfair to compare anything with CCTC! Hehe! 😀


  19. Shilpa says:

    Good old movies…. the way heroines blushed…. the hero and heroine dancing around the tree…. one villain who is behind hero or heroine…. some things are really unforgettable. 🙂
