Rama Rama ajab hui gawa re – Lata – S D Burman – Hema Malini | Naya Zamana (1971)


I love this song just because of the dance.

Movie: This song appears in Naya Zamana (New Era), a 1971 movie produced and directed by Pramod Chakraborty and starring Dharmendra, Hema Malini, late Ashok Kumar, late Mahmood, late Pran, late Lalita Pawar and Aruna Irani.

Anoop (Dharmendra) is a struggling writer. Once, he meets a beautiful wealthy girl Seema (Hema Malini). Seema is impressed with his righteousness and honesty, which she realizes after a few meetings. She falls in love with him. It is around this time that Hema Malini imagines that she sings this song and dances to its tune. Actually, someone else is singing and dancing.

Song: Music was composed by S D Burman and lyrics are by Anand Bakshi.

The girl had fallen in love and is very happy about it. She wants to reveal her inner emotions to the world and dance to enjoy the moment.

Video: Cinematography is by V K Murthy. Dance choreography is by Kamal.

One girl is dancing in the rain. On seeing this, Hema Malini, who is standing near Dharmendra, feels that she herself is dancing. In India, kids dance when the rain falls. Similarly, some children are seen dancing in the rain during this song, as well.

Hema Malini has a tendency to perform even an Indian Classical dance in her break dance style! She is doing the same here. Though in the video Hema Malini has performed the dance, it is in her imagination. Thus, Dharmendra is silent and does not look at her. In the portions where he is seen he has performed well and we see his versatility.

Artists: The song is sung on playback by Lata Mangeshkar. Hema Malini lip-syncs and Dharmendra is standing inside the enclosure.

Cultural Influence: A beautiful girl dancing in the rain looks good. Usually, a girl would not dance like this in rain in the given situation. But taking the cinematic liberty, they have made Hema Malini dance, which is pleasing to the eyes.
