Progress is there in every field as many people invest their intellect, energy and time in this mission and during this journey a hugely talented person is also associated and this person shines more than all other travellers and K L Saigal has been such a name associated with music in India. For those who have found a fine tuning with his musical heritage his name evokes some special feelings in them. 04.04.1904 is defined as his birthday. No tribute is enough to say something about the ocean of musical legacy he has left for the music lovers.

Chris O'Donnell Praises Al Pacino's performance in Scent of a woman

Actor Chris O'Donnell, who played Charlie, the young companion of Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman, says it all. How an actor playing a blind person can praise performances of other actors playing some characters in a film? A good actor can not do that. Because he is so immersed in his blindness that he can not see other actors performing. That is the best compliment one actor ever can get and Al Pacino gets this complement from his fellow actors working in Scent of a Woman!

एक ही ख्वाब (किनारा): गहन प्रेम की खूबसूरत सिनेमाई अभिव्यक्त्ति

This romantic song is a unique song in many aspects. Pancham has used only string based musical instruments. Dialogues and lyrics are intermingled and on screen synchronization of Dhamendra and Hema Malini is a thing to watch. Bhupinder sings for Dharmendra in such a way as if he has been singing for him forever. http://www.cinemanthan.info/index.php/2011/05/ekheekhwab/

जागते रहो(1956) : जागो भारत प्यारे जागो | Cine Manthan

जागते रहो(1956) : जागो भारत प्यारे जागो | Cine Manthan | CINE manthan | Scoop.it
Jagte Raho (1956) was the 2nd film (after Aah 1953) produced by Raj Kapoor's RK Films, which was not directed by Raj Kapoor. He gave direction to Shambhu & Amit Mitra of IPTA. Film was a unique experiment in those days and it still retains its experimental value. With urbanization a danger comes before the man that he not only can lose his identity but human values also in the jungle of concrete. This very good film had an equally good music composed by Salil Chaudhary. This was also a different decision for RK films because Barsat onwards Shankar-Jaikishan had become the permanent MDs at RK studio.

The courage to support the good and oppose the corruption of mighty ones.

This is some cinematic sequence. This brings some super dramatic moments in the film before it ends. This single scene shows the world how people just bow before the might of the powerful people and let them destroy the career, talent and soul of innocent and courageous people. A marvelous performance was given by Al Pacino as Colonel Frank Slade, in Scent of a Woman (1992). One has to see him to know how to play a blind person while keeping the eyes open and naked (without sun glasses). He got an Oscar for it.
