There is some sense of timelessness about the song,all parties involved in the song have shades of an evergreen to them, Lataji, the singer, S.D. Burman, a master in his own right, Shailendra, the lyricist, who penned on of the more memorable songs, Waheeda Rehman, along with Madhuballa, Meena Kumari, Nargis, Vyjanthimala in formed the pantheon of leading ladies of the sepia, overtures. Then there was Dev Anand, unique was his middle name. He, along with Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor, formed a troika, success of whom is still is the part of a Golden chapter of Indian cinema. The technical aspect was supreme too, the lyrics, music, dialogues, camera, work, such supreme work, never mind the lack advancement in filming or recording of things like those. The quality of worked has not been the same since then.
Anyways the song perfectly reflects the mood, exams are finally over, beeen a good end of summer. The exam ended on my birthday so there was one more reason for jubiliation. I dont know after how long I may be getting a break. I have couple of biogrpahies and auto biographies lined up so hopefully will spend time reading that, then there are some movie old and new I would like to watch some of those for sure. There is strike so no new movies have released for quiet some time now, I am waiting for Angels and Demons to release. I loved every bit of Da'Vinci Code. One could say Dan Brown is predictable, at least I can say so since I have read all four of Dan Brown's novels. I can say that I could see the end coming when I had completed three fourth of the novel. But like in teh case of most novels I have read, you tend to guess the end before the novel ends. I have read a dozen or so novels, many Archers, Sheldons, Dan Browns a couple of Coelho, but I could take a guess and what might happen. I must say though I still find Sherlock Holmes quiet intriguing or some unknown reason. Homles and unknown cant be separated by much, can they?
I don't know if Birthdays, are men to be this tiring, but have had a few cakes since morning, lots of good wishes,fast food and some chillers and a gift in the day. Then some quiet evening dinner at the nearby restaurant, with family off course, a few days of relaxation before the mind starts nibbling on cheese of what to do next. Lets see.
