mud mud ke na dekh - Shree 420

I like this song for its magnificent set, for its orchestration, its picturization and choreography. I like this song for initial glimpse of beautiful Nargis, beautiful and elegant Nadira and the handsome Raj Kapoor. I like this song for its change in rhythm and change in the mood halfway through the song. I like this song for the way it is written and also for its meaningfulness. I like this song for its place in the film. The film would be incomplete if this song was not there.

मुड़ मुड़ के ना देख मुड़ मुड़ के
जिंदगानी के सफर में
तू अकेला ही नहीं है
हम भी तेरे हमसफ़र हैं

आए गए मंजिलों के निशाँ
लहरा के झूमा झूका आसमाँ
लेकिन रुकेगा न ये कारवां

नैनो से नैना जो मिला के देखे
मौसम के साथ मुस्कूरा के देखे
दुनिया उसी की है जो आगे देखे

दुनिया के साथ जो बदलता जाए
जो इसके सांचे में जो ढलता जाए
दुनिया उसी की है जो चलता जाए

मुड़ मुड़ के ना देख मुड़ मुड़ के...

गीत : शैलेन्द्र
संगीत : शंकर - जयकिशन
