Video of the Day: “Reshmi Salwar Kurta Jaali Ka” from Naya Daur (1957)
Dosto! Sometimes I love a movie so much that I could post so many screen images and videos from it that it would amount to having you see the entire movie. Such is the case with Naya Daur (1957). Just look at these swell images and I know you will understand my excitement:
With images this exciting and beautiful, imagine how enjoyable it was to see the entire movie. I’ve already posted about Naya Daur here before, but I’m not through. I loved Minoo Mumtazand Kumkum pictured here in “Reshmi Salwar Kurta Jaali Ka” from this classic film. This is another spectacular song byO. P. Nayyar and lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. The playback singers are Asha Bhosle and Shamshad Begum, who is said to be one of the first playback singers in the Indian film industry. “Shamshad became a national rage between the 1940s and mid-1960s rendering songs in her nasal voice, which helped her carve her independent–and till date unchallenged–niche in the world of music.” (wikipedia)
Reshmi Shalwar Kudta Jali Ka from Naya Daur (New age) a Bollywood Classic song from an excellent movie re-made in color version. This song is brilliantly sung by Shamshad Begum. Naya Daur is a 1957 Indian drama film starring Dilip Kumar, Vyjayanthimala, Ajit and Jeevan. Originally filmed in Black and white, the film was colourized and re-released on 3 August 2007.
