Some unforgettable numbers from the yesteryears

It is difficult to pick one particular song from this movie as my favorite but “Chalte Chalte” comes close. Both the lyrics and the tune are mesmerizing.

“Shab-e-intezaar aakhir
Kabhi hogi mukhtsar bhi
Yeh chiraag bujh rahe hain
Mere saath jalte jalte”

Roughly translated…

“In the end, this night of waiting
Will fade out eventually on me
Like this lamp is going to die out
Burning alongside of me”
