  1. Anup ji ,
    Nice post .
    चढता सूरज धीरेधीरे ढलता हैं ढल जाएगा
    That’s what U hv successfully narrated through all the 5 posts on CR .

    Nd I agree that Faryal in ज़िंदगी और मौत has nt at all acted well.
    But that movie has still 2 nice Asha songs picturised on Faryal
    1 ) ” ज़िंदगी और मौत दोनों एक हैं
    दिल अगर लगता न हो संसारमें ”
    2) ” तेरी नज़रोंका इशारा मिल गया
    ज़िंदगी को इक सहारा मिल गया ”

    Though I don’t like gossips , I liked Ur statement
    ” I wonder what would be her feeling while singing ओsssss निर्दयी प्रीतम ” !!!!!

    It is good that U hv added 2 non – filmi songs.

    Looking forward for Ur post on CR in Marathi movies .

    Besides d 2 songs of ज़िंदगी और मौत , I would like 2 mention 1 more Asha song from
    दाल में काला
    ” इन आँखोंको तुम्हें अपना बनानेकी तमन्ना हैं
    मुहब्बतके दिये दिलमें जलानेकी तमन्ना हैं”

    Best wishes for the concluding part of this successful series .

    1. Thanks Pramodji for apprecaition.

      “चढता सूरज धीरेधीरे ढलता हैं ढल जाएगा”
      Yes, this is the law of the nature, and it is followed. But to see it happening with someone like C Ramchandra is painful. As I went through his entire career in this month, it was very surprising as to how he lost all his magic in the 60s!

      Here are the songs mentioned by you,

      Zindagi Aur Maut Dono

      Teri Nazaron Ka Ishara Mil Gaya

      But for me, the bast song from Zindagi aur Maut is ‘Dil Lagakar Hum Yeh Samajhe. The heroine of the film puts me off.

      In comparison to the songs mentioned above, The song from Daal Mein kala is good. I knew it, but I liked Do Aankhen Janani more, so I added it.
      Here is the song mentioned by you,

      In Aankhon Ko Tumhe

      Thanks for visiting and commenting.
      The last part will be published on 31st January, covering his Marathi songs.

  2. I’m so glad you included Dil lagaakar hum yeh samjhe: it’s a lovely song from a film that was otherwise so forgettable! Barring this one, and a couple of other songs, like the ones from Bahurani and Rootha Na Karo, most of the songs in your list were new to me. 🙂

  3. Hi,
    I did not comment, because I knew I would be writing the same things over. Which are- excellent selection, many of them were new, greats post etc….
    I am eagerly waiting for the next part. Regarding which- will you also include the children’s song, sung/ composed by him? Like “ivale-ivale jeev hi yeti”. The song I guess is in his voice, but I am not able to get the version. And the one available on you-tube (with animation) is so not hearable.

    P.S.:- I have started a new series on my blog. Please do visit and comment.

    1. Thanks Aditi ji for appreciation.
      I was originally going to include his Marathi songs in the 5th post itself. But when I started exploring his Marathi songs, I realised the need for a separate post. It will be published on 31st January, It is still in process.
      And,
      the list has the song, Ivale Ivale Jeev Hi Yeti of course. And it is in his own voice. The video was difficult to locate on youtube. But finally I found it.

      I’ve already commented on your post yesterday.
      🙂
