ABHI NA JAO CHODKAR sung by dr.v.s.gopalakrishnan ph.d., ias retd.

This according to me is one of the greatest songs to have ever been written and composed. Oh, what a song! Poor Dev Anand realises that the Corporate Meeting, as it were, was being dismissed even before the Agenda items were considered! What cruelty!

What marvellous lyrics! Kuch bhi kaha nahin, suna nahin, and the meeting is getting adjourned! "Yahi kahoge tum sada"!! "Jo khatam ho kisi jagah, ye aisa silsila nahi"!! How wonderfully said!! Hats off to the geniuses Sahirji and Jaidevji.

hi dmr,
many thanx ! lovely tunes , no doubt, sweetly haunting.
it was not so very easy for me singing this song, as i had to do all the three 'antaraas' (stanzas) inclusing ashiji's middle one, and what with the voice having to travel in each antaraa from mandra saptak to taar saptak!

hi nathan,
many thanks. i am influenced by you to see the movie again and i look forward to it!
vs gopal


adding  to the excellence of the song is the endearing way it had been picturised. 'hum dono' starts with an absolutely quiet scene of the lovers' (dev anand and sadhana) meeting and slowly when rafi's voice breaks the ice, you get the goose-pimples and know you are in for a decently good movie. this is easily one of the loveliest duets i have ever heard! jaidev-ji ka bhi jawaab nahin! and your pick of songs, gopal saar ---pramadham pongo!
