These days because not a lot of films release we find it really tough to get some good DVD’s… however thanks to that this last weekend we happened to come across one old DVD of Dev Anand and thought it would be a good gift for Mom and Dad…
Mom is a big Hemant Kumar, Geeta Dutt and Waheeda fan and Dad is a die hard Dev Anand fan… He even used to make a hairstyle of us three kids like him when we were young… thankfully we broke away… !!!!!!!! (phew)
Anyways the DVD had CID, Tere Ghar Ke Saamne, Guide, Johny mera Naam & Kaala Pani…
Eventually the whole family decided to watch CID as it might be a suspense movie and we all 4 hadnt seen it… !! After putting Hriday to sleep we all sat down and boss… what songs in the movie… I never knew all these songs were from only this SINGLE movie.. I m sure you all have heard these songs and hummed it more than once… The movie was okay… there was no such real suspense but the music was simply superb… its totally divine, rhythmical… unbelievable… !!!!
This was Waheeda Rehman’s debut film in Hindi !! in a negative role !!!!!!!
But what took my heart even more than Waheeda in this movie was the heroine of the movie Shakila… just look at the video’s … she is purrfect !!!!!!! She looks so innocent, beautiful, has such beautiful eyes, gets such lovely expressions when she is jealous…. !!!!!!!! In the end my wife was fed up with me singing praises of her… but she was really really really very very very beautiful… !!!!!!!!
Suddenly I have my new favourite heroine… and here are the songs… gals n guys just enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am sure you all have hummed this one…. Yeh hai Bombay meri Jaan…
The way they used to picturise songs in those days… just try and put colours in the dresses….
What a lovely song…. and just look at Shakila… !!!!!! I am falling…. in love again !!!!!!!!!!!
Then this song used to come… it still comes everyday morning on VIVID BHARTI…
If you have not heard leke pehla pehla pyaar…. dooob maro…. really…. dont talk to me if you havent… you’re untouchable….
and this one… about the love in the eyes… !!! ohh… just watch Shakila in this… she is so so so so pretty…. !!!
aah… what love songs… !!!!
Then this song with Waheeda… just look how pretty and cute she looks…
This song is in the eternal voice of Geeta Dutt, she is my Mom’s favourite singer and I have heard many songs of her…
and goes without saying… mine too… amazing voice and she looks so so GORGEOUS too…. !!!!
Suddenly I m smitten by the old movies bug…. now I want to see Aar Paar which again has shakila…
Hey and here is a lil unique info about the movie from Wikipedia :
Dev Anand and Guru Dutt were friends when they struggled to get a break in films, and had promised each other that Dev would give Guru Dutt a film to direct (which he did with Baazi) and Guru Dutt would cast Dev as a hero and direct him.
As Guru Dutt did not direct C.I.D. he could fulfil only half his promise.
Guru Dutt had spotted Waheeda Rehman in a Telugu movie and cast her in Pyaasa, but gave her a key supporting role in C.I.D. to prepare her for Pyaasa.
Guru Dutt had reportedly gifted Raj Khosla a swanky foreign car after the success of C.I.D. The choreography of this film was done by Zohra Sehgal – now famous for her ‘granny’ roles Cheeni Kum.
The costumes were credited to a debutant, Bhanumati, who is better known as Bhanu Athaiya. Assisting Raj Khosla on C.I.D. were Pramod Charavorty and Bhappi Sonie who went on to become successful directors in their own right.
One of the lyricists was Jaan Nissar Akhtar, father of Javed Akhtar
The scriptwriter was Inder Raj Anand, father of actor-filmmaker Tinnu Anand.
