Song: Sara Pyar Tumhara
Movie: Anand Ashram
Music: Shyamal Mitra
Singers: Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar
Anand Ashram, a 1977 movie, had Sharmila Tagore, Ashok Kumar, Maushami Chatterjee and many others. Its music was very popular. Music was by Shyamal Mitra and lyrics by Indeewar.
Tum Itni Sundar Ho, a famous song by Yesudas and Preeti Sagar can be heard on Vivdhbharti even now. Jab Chaho Chali Aaoongi is a peppy song sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Tere Liye Maine Sabko Chhoda is a beautiful, sad song by Kishore Kumar. The singer’s voice is deep and sonorous in this. These are some of the songs, but the song I like the most is Sara Pyar Tumhara.
I love this duet song, sung by Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar. Melodious tune, beautiful singing and lyrics make this song very attractive. You will like it the first time you listen to it. The music director presents a different kind of music for each song and this song is no different. Kishore and Asha seem to be having a conversation rather than singing out the written lyrics. The wordings are beautiful too. It’s slow pace and melodious tune will suck you in.
Sadly, I don’t hear this song on any radio station. I first heard it on Radio City when Sheetal used to host the 11 o’clock show. Now I hear it on Worldspace’s Farishta. Sheetal Iyer is the Program Director of Farishta, BTW. I don’t know if she has any say in the song selection, but Farishta plays a variety of old Hindi film songs and it is a treat to listen to. Thanks to such radio stations, old, almost forgotten songs are still alive.
