Good Song in Bad Film – Jab Chaha Yaara Tumne

Another nice song I cam across was ‘Jab Chaha Yaara Tumne’ from the film Zabardast starring Sunny Deol, Jaya Prada, Rajeev ( Chmpu) Kapoor and Rati Agnihotri.  The film directed by Nasir Hussain also starred Sanjeev Kumar and featured a forgettable lost and found revenge saga. The song is a delightful number by  R. D. Burman sung by Kishore Kumar.

The picturization is as lame as it can get in a 1980s film with Rajeev Kapoor trying to woo Rati Agnihotri in middle of nowhere with Sunny Deol and Jaya Prada, the other couple watching and guiding them. Rajeev Kapoor has to be the worst Kapoor family dancer and thankfully Sunny Deol doesnt dance in the song. The song is a delightful little gem though.

I had easily forgotten the song since the film released in 1985, but the song came back in limelight thanks mainly to the reality show Big Boss Season 1 and its star Ravi Kissen, who kept singing this song in the show. I am thankful to him for reminding me such a lost gem.
