Song of the Day - Hum Dono Do Premi

A mus have in any travel songs collection this song is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Zeenat Aman in the 1974 film 'Ajnabee'. The two lovers are taking a free ride on a train as it courses through India's rural scapes. Kishore Kumar, Anand Bakshi and R.D. Burman come together again to make this magical number.

Never saw the movie, never saw the video till now but I heard this song so many times that I remember most of the lyrics. Zeenat Aman, her saree flying in the careferee winds looks absolutely natural, and they look so convincing in love, rolling over in the hay and cavorting on the train. Lovely to watch.

And the philosophy of life as well.

'Gaadi se keh do, manzil hai bahut door' says the girl
'Thoda safar ka maza lelijiye huzoor' says the boy
And much more!
