Pakeezah literally translates into ‘Pure One’, and if by some magical way one has to describe the music of this film, then “Pakeezah” truly is apt.
The film about a singing couple was inspired by a real-life couple from showbiz. The husband couldn’t bear the fact that the wife was more talented. No prize for guessing their names. This wondrous creation of musical harmony as originally entitled ‘Raag Raagini’. Burman dada almost did a ‘Guide’ with Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s best film ever.
