Tu Tu hai wahi dil ne jise – Yeh Vaada Raha (1982)

Film: Yeh Vaada Raha (1982)
Music: RD Burman
Lyrics: Gulshan Bawra
Singers: Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle

This is what I call the ultimate duet of togetherness! One of my all-time favourites with the inimitable RD Burman, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle sprinkling their magic interspersed with the whistle, claps, ‘la las’, the flute riffs and the chorus at the end of each antara – I rate this as one of best romantic numbers that I have ever heard!

It is tough to believe that this number is from a score that came at the time of ‘beginning of the end’ of RD Burman (or so he thought!) and melody in Hindi film music (or so the listeners thought). With the advent of a different genre of films highlighting the ‘angry young man’, violence, revenge and disco dance, Bappi Lahiri took over the baton big time from RD in the early 1980s. For the uninitiated, Poonam Dhillon does ‘turn into’ Tina Munim (now Ambani) in the last 2 antaras of this number after a facial/plastic surgery post her accident in the movie.

    Lol. I was beginning to doubt your concept of ultimate togetherness, thanks for clarifying that it was plastic surgery and not multiple lovers 😊😊😊
