Most Romantic Indian Movie Ever.
28 December 2004 | by HeragSee all my reviews

"Abhi Na Jaao Chhod Kar-Ke Dil Abhi Bhara Nahi" by music director, Jaidev Verma, has to be the best lilting, haunting duet of a melody of all times-sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle, Dev Saab (Major Verma) in his inimitable style sings to Sadhana (Mita), who was probably the true beauty ever in Hindi cinema. Now Dev Saheb has left us, if there is one song that will be remembered as his signature song, is this evergreen melody for an evergreen star. The yester-year playback singers, had this unique talent to mold their voice to the actress in the film, as in this song. It is so uncanny, it sounds like Sadhana, was singing this song, not Asha Bhonsle. Also the yester-year stars had a personality of their own, they had individual hair styles, dressed uniquely different, looked different, acted different, unlike the latter year actresses who have no sense of style or class-barring a few. Dev Anand, was not much known for his acting talent (however he was superlative in "Guide") but he had a style and charisma (the man wore his hat in a rakish angle, walked kind of side-ways! with collars up to his ears and spoke his dialog in clipped accent with penchant for nodding), that very few of his contemporaries possessed. This is a movie that should be seen for its sheer beauty of the Stars-Sadhana and Nanda and the melodies like the Bhajan song "Ishawar Thero Naam", which should be the Mother of all Bhajan Songs. This is the most romantic black and white movie and "Sangam" the most romantic color movie. There will Never be another Dev Anand, Never a Sadhana and Never a melody like 'Abhi Naa Jaao." God bless Jaidev Verma for giving this immortal melody.
