I do have a list of my favourite Rajesh Khanna songs. I love them as these songs are incredibly well written along with absolutely brilliant lyrics and compositions. These songs also bring out the emotion of the situation in the film so evocatively.


Here goes my list:


Chingari Koi bhadke from Amar Prem

Kuch to log kahenge again from Amar Prem

Nadia se daria from the movie Namak Haraam

Zindagi kaisi hai paheli from the movie Anand

Mainetere liye hi saat rang ke sapne again from the movie Anand

Yeh Shaam mastani from the movie Kati Patang

As for the dialogue, the favourite will always remain the one from Anand… Babumoshai, Zindagi ek rang manch hai aur hum sab is rang manch ki kathputliyan hain…. The role played by Rajesh Khanna was really powerful, one of a dying man who had the ability to still laugh and make others laugh. I remember a scene in the movie where he makes light of his illness and Amitabh Bachchan in total frustration says, “Agar main kahoon ki tumhein lymphosarcoma of the intestine hua hai toh?” and Rajesh Khanna just smiled and says, “waah waah, baabumoshai, bimaari ho to aisi.” I think it was incredible how he delivered his dialogues and performed his role in the movie Anand.
