This review is for those who have seen the movie. For those who have not seen the movie, this review will help you to understand the songs better.

I have watched this movie over the weekend and felt so good that I wanted to write a review on just the songs, knowing very well that, there are some gaps - both in my recollection of DVPV and my knowledge of some of the golden songs of yesteryear. Hopefully the readers will pardon my lack of knowledge and poor memory and help me to fill in the blanks.

The story was nice, simple, straight from the heart and the songs were in the right place.

I watched all the songs again and was trying to mentally compare them to the original song picturization - and together we can go down memory lane and re-live the beautiful music of R.D.Burman.

1. O haseena

Now: Jimmy and Hrishtaa, against the Bombay local train background.

Then: Shammi Kapoor, Asha Parekh and Helen in the musical thriller ''Teesri Manzil''

2. Gum hai kisi ki

Now: Mahadevan and Namrata in Asrani's restaurant - their first song on the job

Then: Randhir Kapoor and Rekha in ''Rampur ka Laskhman''. The village bumpkin in Randhir, tries to woo the city bred Rekha with sheer poetry.

3. Ab ke saawan

Now: Sanjay Suri with his wife - in the rains. Reminds me of the rains in Bombay and the childish desire to just get wet.

Then: This is from the film called ''Jaise ko Taise''. This song was picturised on Jumping Jack Jeetendra and Reena Roy (Thanks - Rekha)

4. Mere samnewali

Now: Rakesh Bapat, singing this with his first love - Riya Sen. ( thanks Teena)

Then: Who can forget, Sunil Dutt ''lip synching'' to Saira Banu, with Kishore Kumar and paan juice dripping from the side of his mouth.

5. Kya jaanu sajan

Now: Namrata's singing career launched with this song.

Then: This is from ''Baharon Ke Sapne'' starring Rajesh Khanna and Asha Parekh. Another famous song from this film is ''Aaja Piya....'' (courtesy: rekha)

6. O Hansani

Now: Madhavan singing this song in praise of Namrata.

Then: This is from the movie ''Zahreela Insaan - Rishi Kapoor sings this song for Moushumi Chatterjee (thanks - Rekha, Teena)

7. Tere bina

Now: This is picturised on Namrata and Maddy ( thanks Teena)

Then: Sanjeev Kumar and Suchitra Sen in Aandhi - singing in the ruins, in the middle of the night - trying to bridge the gap in their relationship.

8. Kehna hai

Now: ??

Then: This is from ''Padosan'' where Sunil Dutt is again lip synching to Kishore's voice. (Thanks Rekha)

9. Kya jaanu sajan

See # 5

10. Yeh jo mohabbat hain

Now: I am brain dead.

Then: Rajesh Khanna sings in ''Kati Patang'', after being unsuccessful in wooing Asha Parekh.

11. Raat kali ek khwab


Then: Navin Nischol in ''Buddha Mil Gaya'' with Archana (looks like a one-movie wonder) (thanks Teena)

12. Tum Bin

Now: ???

Then: This song is from the movie ''Pyar ka Mausam'' picturised on oh-so-charming Shashi Kapoor and Asha Parekh. Another good song from this movie ''Ni sultana re.....''

(Thanks Rekha)

13. Mere samnewali

see #4

14. Yaadon Ki baarat

Now: Madhavan, Sanjay and Jimmy sing together - joined by Tiku, Kiran Kumar, Gulshan Grover, Asrani etc

Then: Dharmendra, Vijay Arora and Tariq sing this song, which was sung to them in their childhood by their mother and based on this song, re-unification of long lost brothers takes place.

There, I tried to recollect as much as I can.

Would appreciate, if the readers could help me with the missing information
