Art has several dimensions and colours. The finest pieces of art, while being sources of immense joy, are products of fertile imagination. Much has been written, much more spoken about the movies of the Golden Era of Hindi films. The music has been dissected, the lyrics interpreted, actors’ performances glorified and great scenes discussed. Several of these are etched in our memory and the supreme quality of these elements are now fresh even after more than half a century. Yet, there is one dimension of art which have hardly caught the attention of the cine blogger community. This is Art in movies. There are recurrent themes in art too.
Lord Shiva is seen in many movies in his most beautiful form. He is Shankar, he is Bholenath. Lovers romance in his presence, they pour out their hearts to Him. He is witness to the merry making of festivals. This post sets out to examine a few songs with Lord Shiva as the central focus.
The visuals presented here is my humble tribute to those great creators of art. I would like the creations do the talking, hence no accompanying commentary to the selections.
Aaj Chedo Mohabbat – Son of India (Shiva is seen with Nandi facing him)
These are my selections. Do you have any of yours?
