Today’s song is “Chura Liya Hai” – from Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973).  I saw this film within a film (Swades) and was more curious to see it, so I did and loved it!yadon.jpg

The film uses the familiar Bollywood theme of siblings separated by fate. Gangland killers assassinate an honest man who defied them, killing his wife as well. The couple’s three sons flee the massacre and lose contact with each other. They grow up in entirely different circumstances and are re-united only when one of the sons, played by Dharmendra, sets out to find the villain who killed their parents….Their only hope of reuniting is by remembering the song their mother had taught them… Yaadon Ki Baaraat. (wikipedia)

Enjoy this easy listening, yet passionate R.D. Burman tune, with Asha Bhosle singing playback and  Zeenat Aman pretending to sing. Male playback vocals by Mohammed Rafi.

Thanks to  jazzyaj  for the video.
