Brought to life by musical maestros Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle, the song belongs to the movie Naya Daur, as we witness magic being weaved by the charming chemistry of Dilip Kumar and Vyjayantimala. An epitome of old-world charm yet groovy beats, the song is worth listening to a million times, as we dance to the tune on karaoke nights.

Dil Tadap Tadap Ke Kah Raha (1958)
In this timeless treasure from Madhumati, Dilip and Vyjayantimala charm their way into hearts with their sweet romance by the trees. Sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mukesh, the track is a perfect one to appease our partners, if they ever get angry at our silly antics
Suhana Safar aur Yeh Mausam Haseen (1958)
A soulful song by Mukesh, it is best suited for travel as we appreciate the nature which nurtures us. And, what’s better than iconic Dilip Kumar teaching us the correct way to do it, as we delve into the beautiful surroundings around us.
Madhuban Mein Radhika Nache Re (1960)
When integrating classical tune with Mohammed Rafi’s voice, the result has to be legendary. The song from Kohinoor is an outright pleasure to the ears, complemented by a breath-taking performance by Meena Kumari.
Dilruba Maine Tere Pyar Mein Kya Kya (1966)
From the movie Dil Diya Dard Liya, Mohammed Rafi touches the soul with his song, with Dilip Kumar’s and Waheeda Rahman’s amazing chemistry shining through as always in this track dedicated to love and the sacrifices it demands.
Yeh Mera Deewanapan Hai (1958)
A heart-aching piece by Mukesh from the movie Yahudi, the song will strike direct to the heart as we take a trip down the memory lane, reminiscing the happy times with our close ones.
Sukh Ke Sab Saathi (1970)
Sung by Mohammed Rafi in Gopi, the track is devoted to the worship of God, asking for strength to overcome the hurdles as sorrows are faced by us alone, and the only one beside us is the Almighty.
Saala Main Toh Sahab Ban Gaya (1974)
Lending his voice to this immortal creation, Kishore Kumar turns this song into a hilarious one, full of sarcasm and truth, quite wittingly funny and an enjoyable one. The song is from the movie Sagina, with Dilip Kumar breathing life into it with his mannerisms.
