Rewind to 60-70’s

Since today morning I have been listening to this song “Gum sum hai dil mera from the movie Kya love story hai. Now I know the movie name could not have sounded cheesier, but the song sung by Sonu Nigam reminds me of women in tight churidars dancing (the twist) under brightly colored umbrellas with Shami Kapoor or Joy Mukharji in the background with a guitar singing between bevies of giggling women. Our heroine will act perturbed and walk around with an upturned nose. Oh well we could also lay the blame of her tilted head on the weight of her “juda”! It still beats me how they could sport such a thing!

But Listen to the song. It has nice jingle feel to it very much like the late O P Nayyar numbers.

Laakh Chhupaale Deewaane, Banake Rahenge AfsaaneChaahe
Tu Maane Ya Na Maane, Ho Gaya Tujhko Pyaar
Gumsum Hai Dil Mera, Aajkal Gumsum Hai Dil Mera

Ho Kwaabon Khayaalon Mein, Uljhe Sawaalon Mein, Bas Dekhe Rasta Tera
O Jaana, O O O Jaane Jaana, O O O Iss Dil Ka Ilaaj Kar
