  4. Dear Mr & Mrs 55
    Many Hindi film Villains have their own “signature” vile laughs.
    Did Pran ever resort to such sinister vile laughter to establish/prove his villainy ?
    I believe he has portrayed villainous characters with a certain style & intensity, consistently & convincingly, that remains almost unparalleled.

    I don’t think parents of even the new generation parents still dare to name their sons ‘Pran’ because of the connotations. Pity. It is a nice name that actually means ‘life’ !

    It’s a tribute to his versatility as an actor that he portrayed the later character roles, most of them more positive even if grey, so perfectly too.

    Appreciate your interest.

  5. i like the songs and the translation, i can say i am learning pure Hindi by your translations, let me thank you for that. i need a translation for these songs form the picture BAZAR (1982 by Sagar sarhadi). i like the songs 1.

  6. Dear MrandMrs55,

    You have made use of youtube for the songs contained in your truly lovely unique musical website. Could you also provide the option of dailymotion as well for this purpose which will help those who are not able to access youtube in their region / country for whatever reason. Kindly consider this suggestion if possible easily.

    Heartiest congratulations for providing immense joy to music and movie lovers like me particularly that which belongs to the greatest era of Indian cinema—the golden era ranging perhaps from the 30’s to the 70’s if I am not mistaken.
