Many people feel that the Indian film industry began to reinvent itself in the late sixties. This reformation extended into the seventies too. This phase in Bollywood saw new styles emerging. And of course, with the styles, style icons emerged too.
When you speak about the heroes of this age, it is impossible not to talk about Shashi Kapoor. From the Kapoor clan, this young lad did not fail to live up to the family name and soon had tons of girls going all gaga over him.
Now that we have mentioned the heroes, how can their leading ladies be far behind? The leaders among the leading ladies were Asha Parekh, Meena Kumari, Tina Munim and Mumtaz. Having started out as a side kick in the industry, Mumtaz transformed herself into a beautiful angel and there were many hearts that throbbed just to look at her beautiful face.
Along with a great story and a stellar cast, the film has something else which ensures that it is still remembered. It has a blockbuster sound track. One of the most famous songs of the film is Ghoongroo ki tarah…this song is picturized with Shashi Kapoor in jail reflecting upon his life and the sudden betrayal
The lyrics for the song, given by the renowned Inderjeet Singh Tulsi and Ravindra Jain could not have been more perfect. They give the audience a peek into the troubled mind of the poor hero who can’t understand why he was suffering. He then sings a heart rendering song about how he has been used all his life for the pupose and entertainment of other people and how he has been played for a fool. The sentiments are relayed in the form of a metaphor- Ghoongroos. An amazing song with many levels to it.
The music too gives you a melancholic feel and makes you feel really sorry for the hero- makes you wish you could do something to help him out. Kishore Kumar has once again outdone himself with this soulful ditty and the voice blends perfectly with the mood and the troubled man.
The setting itself is done very well- within a bleak cell where the rest of the inmates are asleep, save the hero who suffers. The flashback pieces shown in the middle are an apt reflection of his thought process and help you connect with his trauma.
All in all, a wonderful song from this hit film of 1970’s.

I RESPECT , LOVE THE INDIAN (AND WORLD) LEGEND KISHORE KUMAR INFINITELY.
WHEN I FIRST HEARD THE SONG ” Ghunguroo ki tarah
“, I FEEL SOMETHING DIFFERENT ,GOOD OR BAD ? I CANT SAY. BUT IN CURRENT MOMENT I LOVE THAT SONG MOST AND MOST . NOW A DAYS I LIVE IN HOSTELS, SO ITS UNABLE TO TO ME HEAR THAT SONG WHENEVER I WANT.
BUT WHEN I GO TO MY HOME I HEAR AND HEAR MANY TIMES ” Ghunguroo ki tarah” ON MY PLAYER . I DONT KNOW WHY THE PERSON LIKE ME , WHO NEVER FACED ANY DIFFICULTIES , CALAMITIES AND THINGS LIKE THIS ,LIKE THAT SONG MUCH . I THINK ITS KK’S SUCCESS ,HIS TALENT.
Kishore Kumar is the greatest singer.
Kishore Kumar, a great singer, but not the greatest.
One of the greatest songs by the greatest singer,Kishore Kumar.
plz be honest with u r self once u will going to forget that there was a singer called kk because we all sure that KK was a great actor but not singer as we all know that,Same of us said there was KK wave from 1970 to 1976 but in this wave how many award KK got offourse award are not imporatant but ok how many superhit songs with unknow actors or film makers or unknow MD………there are many great songs singed by KK but saying that he was the best how sing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did yuo say they sound alike ? No Brother (Marc), Kiska rastaa dekhe is different.
Ghungroo ki tarah is quite different. Both are sad but totally different tune.
or you mean the lyrics is all the same ?
Based on the description this number has setup much alike Kiska raste dekhe. Ravindra jain has produced some music along with Kishoreda.
Kisi ne khub kaha hai ke log marte hein par unki awaz nahi.
We all miss u very much
Nice article. Very sad and good compositiion. The voice takes all the credit,
When you listen to it, you will feel you are unhappy.
Thanks man for such a good article,
By the way, why don’t I see the Author’s name ?
Perhaps KK has not sung many songs for Ravindra Jain compared to other MDs. This one is a master piece delivered by KK under Ravindra Jain.
