There are romantic leading men and there are romantic leading men, but very few have taken cinematic love to legendary heights. While there might be other icons, we at Rediff decided to pick our favourites and, for Valentine's Day, look back at their most romantic songs.
We start with the essential lover.
The black and white icon who transcended generations to bring us a catalogue of on-screen charm almost impossible to pick from. Here's a look at the finest of Dev Anand.
Prem Pujari -- Phoolon Ke Rang Se
Music: SD Burman
Sung in a train with European schoolkids looking uncomprehendingly on, this is a lovely song separated by most Anand classic tracks by the use of a completely Hindi lyric, by Neeraj.
Text: Raja Sen
