A song for each picture. Your thoughts?

One of the interesting results of integrating soundtracks in movies is that there tend to be musical associations we create with certain images. Figured one interesting way would be to think in that direction. So the question is: What Bollywood song(s) does this picture remind you of?

Addendum 4/29/2008:

A big thank you to those who responded!

The songs that were brought up were:

1. Tujhe Dekha To Yeh Jaana Sanam from the film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge (1995). Watch it here.


2. Dekha Ek Khwaab To Yeh Silsile Hue from Silsila (1981). Watch it here.


Honorable Mention:

This two songs does not fit in as the ones mentioned above (what without the flowers and all), but is still a very good song in the field (no pun intended for fellow consultants). Saawariya Saawariya from my favorite Shah Rukh Khan film, Swades (2004). Watch it here. Where is the lovely Gayatri Joshi since?

Dekha Ek Khwab to yeh silsile hue, with Amitabh Bachchan. Remember that?

My first reaction was Silsila too, but those dont look like tulips, so i'll settle for the sarson ke khet of punjab in DDLJ :D Though the sky doesnt look v Punjab-ish either :)

My first thought was DDLJ - Kajol and SRK running around in that yellow field.....

Seema: That's a great song from Silsila.

Shweta and filmi_girl: Kajol and Shah Rukh some what own that yellow field since DDLJ, don't they? As for the sky...oh well :)

All: Thank you for your comments!

Last night I saw Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (3rd or 4th time for me), and during the title song I noticed a field of yellow flowers similar to the one in the picture above, appearing for only a few seconds. Both Tina (Rani) and Rahul (SRK) were shown frolicking in the flowers, while Anjali (Kajol) danced alongside the periphery, never entering the field. Hmmm…maybe the field was a metaphor for requited love, which poor Anjali would not receive for years.

Also today, I was in the car with someone (a non-South Asian who I never would have expected to be interested in Bollywood) when all of a sudden he puts in a CD with Hindi songs, and skips to his favorite, which happened to be of all songs… Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. I like the song but the whole experience was very Orwellian and Big Brother-like where it seemed that no matter where I went or who I was with, Bollywood would always be there and it would be impossible for me to escape, but is there really such a thing as too much Bollywood? :)

Watching KKHH I realized what an important role the “college campus” has played in Bollywood, and on the eve of JTYJN‘s release, it‘s still relevant today. Perhaps you could do a post on the most memorable films centered around the college campus.

That's fantastic! What an experience that must've been, to have someone play a Bollywood CD when you least expect it. Bollywood is pervasive -- we better believe it! And no, there is no such thing as too much Bollywood. :)

What a great idea about college campuses! That will definitely find its way here soon enough. Thanks!
