Let me present you the unforgettable and mostly forgotten song by us (Telugu). I think the original version is Hindi and please correct if I am wrong. Hindi version is amazing and with divine Kishore Kumar’s voice it is brilliantly composed tune. Then comes the Tamil version composed by Ilayaraja. Looks like it is a remake of the original Hindi movie and you will figure out by looking at videos. Both the songs are pretty close but if you concentrate on the guitar part of tamil version, I am sure, you will be amazed. SPB mentioned in so many interviews about this song and the hard work behind the composition. For example, it took 21 takes to get the guitar tunes as per Ilayaraja’s satisfaction. Last but not the least is Telugu version. There is nothing to talk about it since its a dubbed one. Enjoy!

He was not satisfied with the 21 takes played by guitarist, he had to play the guitar finally 🙂
