Huckleberry Friend

Raat Akeli Hai,
Bujh gaye diye...

Oh, that Tanuja! Doesn’t she look so... nice?

Aake mere paas,
Kaanon mein mere...

Well nice is hardly the right word, but she’s old enough to be my grandmother! Alright. Not my grandmother but definitely a grandmother. And how can you even comprehend the idea that somebody’s grandmother is anything more than nice?

Jo bhi chaahe kahiye,
Jo bhi chaahe kahiye...

But just watch the way she’s swinging her... Yikes! Cover your eyes! Cover your eyes!

Something about her in that song reminds me of Audrey Hepburn.

Ah! Audrey Hepburn! Breakfast at Tiffany's would have been such an ordinary movie if it wasn’t for her. Sigh...

Remember the scene where she's sitting on the fire escape with a guitar singing that song "Moon River"? After she’s finished singing, she looks at George Peppard and says to him, "Hi," in that dreamy voice. Makes you want to melt in your shoes... And then she says "Watcha doin'?"

Are Julia Roberts and Demi Moore even a pale shadow of what she was? Divine beauty on this earth, no less. God doesn’t make them like that anymore...
