Magnanimous Madhubala


One possibly could not think of Mughal-e-Azam without Madhubala and it was master stroke of K Asif that his movie ranks as number one in my charts of top 10 Hindi movies of all time.. Of course there can always be more choices for second, third and other places but many cinegoers would not cast doubt about my first choice.. though besides Madhubala.. the credit also goes to Prithviraj Kapoor Sahab in his larger than life portrayal of Mughal Samrat.. The likes of Dilip Kumar and Naushad Ali also made a huge contribution to the success of best film ever made till date.. yet I have not taken every song from the film.. All Shakeel Badayuni songs were exceptional and Lata Mangeshkar in some of these songs truly must have had her first high peak in an illustrious career .. and the ones I have taken could not be left out when one talks of Madhubala and Mughal-e-Azam.. .. other songs from Dulari, Half Ticket and Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi were more or less expected to be there in the Rupaye Mei Solah Gaane sequel on India’s most magnanimous looking Madhubala.. Only The Great Meena Kumari and Nargis Dutt could compete with her in those early days of Hindi cinema for assured success of a film on their basis alone.. Have a great time.. and though there could be dedications to others.. this particular series is dedicated to person from Hindi cinema to Pran Sahab and Dara Singh who died on this day with a gap of one year between them.. Dara Singh ji in 2012 and Pran Sahab a year later in 2013.. both are known to be very generous persons from the industry.. and it is likely that they may not find a Rupaye Mei Solah Gaane featuring them I chose to remember them specially with something unique.. and Madhubala emerged on the scene.. the list has been corrected and after a bit of surprise the a duet from Phagun has been brought down..
