From Sadhana to Waheeda Rahman, Usha Kiran to Nalini Jaywant, Dev Anand romanced most of the beauties of the black and white era. The songs picturised on him and his leading ladies boosted his romantic image and made him the heartthrob of millions.
Here are some of the memorable numbers.
'Yeh raat yeh chaandni phir kahaan' ('Jaal' 1952): This was one of the first few hit songs of Dev Anand. It shows him strumming a guitar on a moonlit evening, and singing for his love, played by Geeta Bali.
'Yaad kiya dil ne kahan ho tum' ('Patita' 1953): Another song with beautiful lyrics and lilting music, it was well-picturised on Dev Anand and Usha Kiran. The song is an all time favourite of music lovers.
'Ankhon hi ankhon mein ishara ho gaya' ('C.I.D.' 1956): Through the song, the actor expresses his feelings for his love interest, played by Shakeela.
'Chod do anchal zamana kya kahega' ('Paying Guests' 1957): A playful number, it is picturised in Dev Anand and Nutan and even today sounds refreshing.
'Khoya khoya chand khula asman' ('Kala Baazar' 1960): A beautifully picturised love song in the outdoors with Waheeda Rehman playing the love interest. Lyrics and music are married so well, that it plays with the listeners' heartstrings.
