Pehle Pehle Pyar Ki (The Great Gambler - 1979)

This is a light, romantic song! Kishore and Asha has sung many such wonderful songs and this is indeed one of those fun songs that makes you smile and hum for no particular reason! I like it because of its expressions! When it comes down to expressions, duets of Kishore & Asha can be considered some of the best! Talking to Deblina, I once mentioned that these were the singers who even delivered dialogs in "sur". The ease with which both singers have provided expressions is amazing!

Although, challenging to imitate, here is a humble attempt by Deblina and I. Please listen and provide your valuable comments when time permits! Also, here is the video link to the song!

Movie: The Great Gambler (1979)

Superb performance by both of you! I think those expressions, that you mentioned, were also wonderful!:)

Kya baat hai......another fantastic rendition by you two...pure perfection. Yes, this is one of those 'masti' songs that you can hum whenever you feel like...well, humming ;) Loved the way you guys maintained the 'jesting, lighthearted' mood...all the way through.

Dear Sai, thank you very much for listening to this rendition! You words mean a lot.

Asim Da, thanks for you kind words. I loved recording it because of the "light-hearted" nature of the song.

Sarada, thank you so much for your encouraging words. Believe it or not, getting those expressions right was tougher than the rest of the song :)

Dinesh bhai, bohat shukria! Your feedback always gives me courage to continue.

Sai, Asimda, Sarada, Dineshbhai ... thanks so much for your kind words ... it was a fun project ... yes, fully agree with Azam... getting those expressions was the toughest part in the song.

Thanks a lot again for stopping by,
