2595 : Deewana Dil Deewana From Kabhi Haa Kabhi Naa

I have posted at least 3-4 times about this song. The 1994 movie that contained the song is iconic in the way it built Shah Rukh Khan’s versatility in mysterious way (let me explain...a hero playing a losing underdog...is no way to build your charisma in Bollywood...and yet SRK did this along with Kundan Shah (who died just a few years ago with very little fame and probably all he was left was with penury).

But....

This song is a little gem. The harmony (and I am sure I have written this earlier too) between Udit Narayan and Amit Kumar is inspired.

I can never tire listening of this song. The lyrics, the music......yes....the lyrics are just way well written for a run of a mill movie.

And the way Amit Kumar sings the best lines of the songs (in terms of lyrics) always takes me back to a place and time when life was simple, happy and we all rooted for a hero who was losing. We were all heartbroken as SRK lost, and yet we felt something good in us emerge as for once we took sides with someone who was clearly the underdog.

Have a listen.

yup Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa is one of my all-time favourite movie as well.
However my favourite song in this movie is "Aee Kaash ke hum hosh mein ab.." While Deewana Dil Deewana symbolises hope, there is a touch of sadness or should I say realism in the former which has been brought out quite well.
