Good song, bad picturisation

Yesterday (Dt. 3 November) I saw a song on B4U music. Song was very dearest to me. It was ‘Patta Patta Buta Buta Haal Hamara Jane Hai’. Very nice composition by great music director duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal and nicely sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammad Rafi. Till yesterday, I had only listened song, but had never seen.

From the very first moment, as shot was long shot, hero-heroine was not clear. At that time I had actually  forgotten that song was from movie ‘Ek Nazar’ featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri (at that time). As soon as the picture about who the stars are got cleared, I got plesant surprise. It was my favourite actor. I felt one more feather added to my favourite actor’s cap.

But very soon I realised that actually that time actor was really learning acting. No good expression I found on his face. Also or for same reason, director had shot with long shots. This song is a good example of good song wasted in picturisation. Same is the case with ‘Ye jo mohabbat hai’ song from ‘Kati Patang’ movie.

Very good song. Till some years ago, you were only able to listen songs, not see. So, from listening songs repeatedly, you would have got some imagination that song might have been picturised like this. Your imagination would get firm with repeatedly listening songs. But as soon as you would see song in ‘Chitrahaar’ your imagination is totaly cracked. I had never imagined that ‘Ye Jo Mohabbat Hai’ song could have been picturised the way it was.Kaka was shown singing the song in drunk position.

I feel same with all ‘Aashiqui’ songs which were picturised on Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal - expression less actors.

Can you remember such good songs which are wasted in picturisation?

Write right away here.
