“Charha De Rang” from Dharmendra’s “Yamla Pagla Deewana” is another Lohri number set in Punjab and featuring the Deol brothers, who steal the show with their performances. The song fits nicely into the plot where Bobby Deol finds ways to mingle with his love interest. While the song’s lyrics say little about Lohri, the star’s traditional dance thrown around the bonfire makes it relevant to the festival. A bit of the warmth of love during the cold winter months!
Featuring Jimmy Sheirgill and Neeru Bajwa, the song is from the Mel Karade movie Rabba. It was sung by Feroz Khan and Sarabjit Kaur.
The foot tapping number with Vishal Bhardwaj lending music to Gulzar’s lyrics is a Lohri anthem. Against the backdrop of the Punjab militancy that tore the state apart in the late 80s and early 90s, Maachis’ song depicts the softer side of the militants, in the snowy Himalayas far from farms and fields of homeland, longing for their beloved ones but their circumstances thwart.
