    Kumar Sanu is bearable (just about) only in this movie for me. πŸ™‚

    Love almost all songs of this.

    Thanks Sputnik, I remember seeing this movie 3 times in cinemas while was in school. (2 times alone – just for songs). Thanks for bringing back all the memories.

    The way Rahul’s character sings and behaves (especially with Dipak Tijori) …now its not possible. Minds are corrupted now and ppl would call any such act “gayish”. Gone are the days of innocence and true male bonding. Sigh !

    This song is one of my all time favorite excellent singing by Sanu beautiful lyrics and music too.

    Btw, Rahul Roy seems like he is “actually” playing the guitar in this song. A rare for hindi films.

      Agree on Rahul Roy guitar playing comment and one more thing we should give some credit to Mahesh Bhatt also because he is the main person jo itni zabardast story romantic/sad music aur lyrics banwayi.

      Good points on both Rahul Roy “actually” playing the guitar and male bonding. I saw Dil, Aashiqui and Ghayal back to back at my friend’s house on a rented VCP.

    Totally agree with u on the innocence point. Don’t know what it means in today’s times and today’s movies. You are bang on right that kids today would call Rahul and Deepak’s bonding gay.

    Mahesh Bhatt lost his mojo after he retired from direction. These days he’s just producing the vishesh crapfests. Their songs are good but not memorable. Then again, I don’t listen to much of new Bollywood stuff now. Most of it is dope shope or lungi dance trash which are played in parties or Ganeshotsav. The last best soundtrack I remember are Johnny Gaddaar , No Smoking and Udaan. I pretend Aashiqui 2 never happened.

    The movie and the songs were a product of that time. Rahul was a first rate non-actor. But his face showed a longing and a solemn innocence and even today people think of Aashiqui when they see Rahul. Miss the 90s man.

    A friend of mine has a collection of the 90s films like Ghayal, Akshay, Sunil Shetty actioners, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, Aashiqui, Jaan Tere Naam, etc which we see after our trashy engineering exams.
