The man of romance of Hindi Cinema - Yash Chopra - truly had love and romance in his heartbeats! To depict his concept of love, courting a woman, complimenting her, embracing her and caring for her, he had to be a visionary for his times!! The gentleness in his love was like fresh spring blooms! He truly made us believe in true love! The actual bloom in the season of his films were his songs! Melodic, Lyrically pleasing and the vocals laced with emotions were just music to our ears (pun intended!).
Here is the list of 5 of his most romantic songs of Yash Raj Films:
1. Ae Meri Zohra Jabeen! (Waqt, 1965)
This Song is a cult song for a continuous chain of generations. Even today when someone sings this for their lady love, regardless of whether they are 35 or 65, this song makes them fall in love again. How ironic, the movie that the song belonged to, became timeless!
2. Keh Doon Tumhe! (Deewaar, 1975)
Yash Chopra's Heroes were never shy to confess their love. They were the ones to make the first move. Courting a woman was their priority and the chase was their thrill! This song was famous amongst the younger generation then!
3. Kabhi Kabhi Mere Dil Me Khayal Aata Hai! (Kabhi Kabhie, 1976)
This song highlighted the range of emotions a man feels towards his lady, from lust to love to affection to genuinely caring for her. The lyrics - "Tu ab se pehle sitaaron me bas rahee thi kahin, tujhe zameen par utaara gaya hai mere liye" makes him territorial yet never stifling. To be surrounded by his love and being under his watchful eye is rather pleasing. Can make any woman blush!
4. Dekha Ek Khwab! (Silsila, 1981)
Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha created one of the most beautiful onscreen jodis for Bollywood in this much talked about film. This song spoke about love, declaration, conforming to each other and the beginning of a journey together. To feel each other is much nicer than to just constantly re-instate to each other about your love. Let your actions do the talking!
5. Rang Bhare Baadal Se! (Chandni, 1989)
The nonchalant and 'do or die' attitude of loverboy Rishi Kapoor, literally belching out his love is like a gush of fresh tides after an eclipse! It was a craze of its times!
