Get Nostalgic Through These 8 Hindi Songs On Telephone

By  | 

Telephone has always been an integral part of our lives since its invention. Although now the place has been permanently taken by its savvier cousin – the mobile, the telephone still has its special place. The sound of the shrill ring made you jump; either with excitement or panic, whatever the situation may be. The intrigue as to who must be calling you from the other end, the suspense of it till you listen to the voice is just fascinating.

Here are some of the old golden songs which have been sung by the artists over the phone; some revealing their secret love, some depicting the longing while some showing all the naughty emotions of leg pulling and teasing.

1. Mere Piya Gaye Rangoon – Patanga (1949)
Whenever I think of telephone songs, this one pops up in my head immediately and I am sure it does in your heads too. This one is a stage song which became a cult in those days and is famous till now. It is sung by C. Ramchandra (who composed the music as well) and Shamshad Begum. The way she says the word telephoon just steals your heart away! It is featured on actors Gope and Nigar Sultana.

2. Hello Hello Sun Sun – Pyar Mohobbat (1966)
This song features Dev Anand and Saira Banu. It is sung by Sharda and Mohd. Rafi. The music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan and the lyricist is Hasrat Jaipuri. The song starts with Saira calling Dev and asking him to come and meet her. After some time she disconnects the phone as there is no reply from the other end. But the hero calls her back and tells her that the condition of his heart is just like hers. The voices of Sharda and Rafi together sound refreshing.

3. Pyar Ki Ye Baatein Hum Ko – Baazi (1968)
This beautiful Kalyanji – Anandji number is sung by Asha Bhosle and is featured on Waheeda Rehman and Dharmendra. We can see Waheeda Rehman dancing with the telephone in her hand and going all the way to her balcony, thanks to the extension!

4. Aaj Kal Shauk-e-Deedar – Leader (1964)
The duet features Dilip Kumar and Vyjayanti Mala. The music is composed by Naushad and the lyrics are by Shakeel Badayuni. It is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhosle. Just look at Dilip Kumar having a little dance of his own while singing on the phone.

5. Jalte Hain Jiske Liye – Sujata (1959)
Another hit telephone song is Jalte hain jiske liye from the movie Sujata. It features Sunil Dutt and Nutan. This song is sung by Talat Mahmood and is composed by S.D. Burman. Here Dutt is seen sharing his feelings for Nutan through this poetry and is happy doing so while Nutan on the other end is sad as only she knows that this love can never blossom.

6. Hello Hello Mijaz Toh Huzoor ke – Minister (1959)
This peppy number is sung by Asha Bhosle and Mohd Rafi. The music is composed by Madan Mohan while the lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan. It features Sorab Modi and Roopmala. It’s a nice song where the heroin does not want to talk to the hero and disconnects the call by saying “wrong number.”

7. Mere Dil Ki Dhadkan Kya Bole – Anhonee (1952)
This song features the hit pair of Raj Kapoor and Nargis. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Talat Mahmood and the music is composed by Roshan. Look at the beautiful telephone that Raj Kapoor is talking on (yes telephones had different designs too!)

8. Hello Hello Ji – Bombay Ka Chor (1962)
This is a typical Kishore Kumar song, full of fun. It is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle and is composed by Ravi. The song features Kishore Kumar and Mala Sinha.
