Madhubala , what a beauty !
Lata Mangeshkar started her glorious journey with " aayega aayega anewala"
Ashok Kumar was great.

yes ashok kumar was a a teriffic actor
and those early songs are so gorgeous to hear


aayega aane wala is one of the most hauntingly beautiful composition i have ever heard , the initial 2/3 minute without much music in the song is just exemplary , it can bring tears in eyes even when its not a sad song

but in reality neha kakkar and honey singh songs generate more views in an hour or two than this supremely beautiful song has


But this song and the likes will live for years


vo to hai bhai , people dont even listen to songs of today after 3 months , whereas these evergreen classics are still remembered after 70 odd years
even with all the technologies and resources and tons of singers and composers , music has become so awful today

i wish these old movies are coloured now

those days movies were only story telling , raj kapoor nargis dilip kumar dev anand , oh man
devoid of any useless masala , item songs and still they made the best quality movies with limited technologies
