However, an ongoing course on Hindi cinema made me go to Rajesh Khanna of Katipatang and Daag and it was now easy to see how his ebullience as a romantic hero could have brought him the phenomenal success that it did over six particular years when every film sustained him as a superstar.Bhaskar Banerjee (played by Amitabh Bachchan) in the film Anand is awarded with the Saraswati Puruskar for his novel ‘Anand’, he says it must have been his failing if his readers thought this was a figment of imagination.

If songs can be taken out of context, and perhaps only songs can be, Chingari koi bhadke to saawan use bujhaye/ saawan jo agan lagaye use kaun bujaye would be the best bet to do so. Anand Bakshi’s lyrics, Kishore Kumar’s voice and RD Burman’s music make this song from the film Amar Prem one of the most precious musical gifts.

As Professor and art-historian Woodman Taylor observes in his essay, “Penetrating gazes”, her imagination of a union with Dharamendra on the lines of Mirabai’s poems is an appropriation of historic poetry to frame a love scene on the screen. “Mira’s poetry in praise of Krishna is normally sung in religious contexts during a religious, visual transaction of gazes called darshan, but Mirabai’s bhajan is used in the film to frame an imagined relationship on the screen, of Kusum longingly viewing the film image of Dharmendra.
