Classic Sad Songs - Part 50 - Indian Cinema - 1949 To 1983


These are some of the most popular Hindi "Sad Songs" of Indian Cinema, produced between 1949 and 1983. Apparently, there are so many but due to copyright issues, I had to skip many of them! Please note that I have selected these songs as "Sad" considering ONLY the melody and not the lyrics since I do not know Hindi or Urdu languages. Almost all the songs are very popular in my country, Sri Lanka too. Thank you. Yuan. Song No. 1 - Mohammed Rafi - Kahaan Hain, Kahaan Hain, Kahaan Hain - Pyaasa [1957] Song No. 2 - Lata Mangeshkar - Hum Ke Jinke Sahare - Safar [1970] Song No. 3 - Geeta Dutt - Aaj Sanam Mohe - Pyaasa [1957] "Pyaasa" (Hindi: , Urdu: ; Eternal Thirst in English) is a 1957 Hindi film directed by Guru Dutt. The film tells the story of struggling poet, Vijay (Guru Dutt), trying to make his works known in post-independence India. Gulabo (Waheeda Rehman in her first major leading role in Hindi cinema), a prostitute with a heart of gold, eventually helps him get his poems published. The music was composed by SD Burman. With commercial success of thrillers like Baazi, Jaal, Aar Paar, CID and comedies Mr. & Mrs. '55, Guru Dutt and his studio were financially secure and established. He could now make movies he really wanted to make, including Pyaasa. Pyaasa is rated as one of the best 100 films of all-time by Time Magazine, which called it "the soulfully romantic of the lot." Indiatimes Movies ranks the movie amongst the Top 25 Must See Bollywood Films ...
