Yesterday’s video from Omkara was the song “O Saathi Re” and here’s a different “O Saathi Re” song, this time Kishore Kumar is the playback singer, and Amitabh Bachchan is pretending to sing. Amitabh’s speech before the song is so touching, even though I don’t understand too much of it, he still makes the point. This clip is from the 1978 movie Muqaddar Ka Sikander, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Raakhee Gulzar, Rekha and Amjad Khan. We’ve already posted another great song from the movie on this blog, “Salaam-e-ishq Meri Jaan” , also written by Kalyanji Anandji, so check that out too.
Thanks to youtuber rajnishnagar for the video.
And here’s another set of the lyrics translated by theBollywoodFan.
