Parda hai Parda -- hooked to a classic

Speaking of Ranbir Kapoor in the previous post, and would like to move back a generation and share my all-time favorite Rishi Kapoor song. From the film Amar Akbar Anthony (1977). I have lost count of how many times this movie has played at home. It was quite the rage through the 1980s. Here is the song Parda hai Parda, one that I must admit I have been hooked to for as long as I can remember.

These are some of the Rishi Kapoor songs I like. My personal favorites are 1, 2, 6, 9, and 13, and I have listened to them countless times over the past few weeks.

BOBBY (1973)
1) Na Mangun Sona Chandi
2) Jhoot Bole Kauva Kate
3) Main Shayar To Nahin
4) Hum Tum Ek Kamre Mein Band Ho

LAILA MAJNU (1976)
5) Husn Hazir Hai
6) Is Reshmi Pazeb Ki

KABHIE KABHIE (1976)
7) Tere Chehre Se Nazar

HUM KISISE KUM NAHIN (1977)
8) Mil Gaya Humko Saathi

SARGAM (1979)
9) Dafli Wale Dafli Baja

KARZ (1980)
10) Dard-e-Dil Dard-e-Jigar
11) Ek Hasina Thi Ek Deewana Tha
12) Om Shanti Om

PREM ROG (1982)
13) Yeh Galiyan Yeh Chaubara

CHANDNI (1989)
14) Chandni O Meri Chandni

Rishi Kapoor did not lip-sync for Songs 5 and 13, but was featured in these songs nonetheless. If you compare him in Bobby and Chandni, he hardly looks the same. I’m not too familiar with Rishi Kapoor’s work, but am looking forward to watching most of his films. Many of them are classics. I plan on starting with his debut film, Bobby.

Salek: I am in the same boat as you are. Dimple and Rish were great in Bobby, it seems, and I shall hope to check it out soon too!

Thank you for the list. Dafli Waale is such an iconic song; it's played so frequently at weddings that I am somewhat sick of it, to be honest. Still, a testament to its greatness.
