Silsila is an evergreen movie, which still holds values in today’s time. The music album of the film had grabbed brilliant sale by the time it released and still the songs of this movie run well among the listeners. The songs like Rang Barse, Dekha Ek Khawab Tu and Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum are simply melodious and spongy. The film released way back on 29th July, 1981. It starred Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha, Jaya Bhaduri, Sashi Kapoor and late Sanjeev Kumar in main leads.
The whole album was written by the legendary lyricist-poet Javed Akhtar and the composition was scored by Shiv-Hari. The film was directed and produced by late Yash Chopra.
Magic of the song is its poetry, which is simply mesmerizing and enthralling. Javed Sahib has written in a true lovely and romantic mood. Each word holds magic. The way Amitabh Bachchan narrates the poetic lines is breath-arresting. Lata Mangeshkar sings brilliantly – her sung words spell magic with the soul. Composition is mellifluous.
You cannot take your ears off Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum, since it is captivating and delightful in every sense of the word. The video as well is breathtaking.
