After binging on Jubilee this weekend, we’ve all transformed to the vintage days of Hindi cinema when lyrics had so much depth that they left you awestruck. Without further ado, lets go down the memory lane with these songs!
Jubilee, a period piece made by Vikramaditya Motwane takes you back to a time in cinema when the foundation of our film industry was still building. It is about the storytellers who wanted to make movies at a turbulent time in our country - the 1947 partition. The politics, glamour, retro and vintage feel of the show makes us wonder how movies were made back then compared to the comfort of technology we have now. Songs brought out the essence of a movie even back then, rather especially back then. The lyrics that touched the audience’s hearts, the purity in the singer’s voice and melodies that feel like comfort on any given day, make these tracks so evergreen and are called ‘classic songs’ for a reason!
While Bollywood as a whole today when it comes to the stories, fashion, and songs has completely changed, we cannot forget the root of what really made us fall in love with Hindi songs. These songs totally paved the way for the future of not only the Bollywood we see today but also became a huge part of our identity and culture. The songs back then were minimalistic yet so impactful. R.D. Burman Ji, Lata Mangeshkar Ji, Mohammed Rafi Sahab, Kishore Kumar Ji amongst many others were the pioneers of the golden era of cinema and left back a timeless legacy full of masterpieces that will always remain engraved in our hearts!
