Who says you can have a crush on someone only when you are in your teens?? I am married and nearing 30 and I have this immense crush on Ashok Kumar (yes, the film actor). No, you may not snicker. Yes, you may ask- why him? I have seen only movies of him singing "rail gaadi rail gaadi chuck chuk chuk chuk rail gaadi..." and not any of his really old movies (yea, shoot me!). J is a BIG "old Hindi songs" fanatic and our favourite pass time on weekends is to Google..what else..'old Hindi songs'. That was the first time I fell in love with Ashok Kumar. Aioioo rammaa he was SO smart, God knows how I missed his before-rail gaadi rail gaadi chuk chuk movies. I am now in love with this song. I showed it to a few of my friends and they said, "aioo amma SJ, why maa this song? What shokka (sadness) you have in life that you have to listen to this song?" I don't have any shokka, Ashok Kumar and Devika Rani not only acted and went around the trees looking all rrrooomaticu, they actually sang-yeah no Lata Mangeshkar/ Kishore Kumar, it's them singing!!! How cool is that? (Yes, I do know that was a norm in the olden days, but whatever it's SO cool!!) This is a big deal for me because I, as you all know by now, can't dance/sway and these guys did that and more!
Here is the song and say with me-- aioiooo sooo rrromaanticu! No, you may not pass any comments on Ashok Kumar-none will be tolerated, not even-"Dev Anand is smarter,no?" *hmpf*.
