Firstly I would like to say, that I have never herd or watched any Bollywood, movies, this all changed when I was in France, for a business trip. Well staying in my hotel I was reading an article in a French English paper. On the front page there was a full story about the Cannes film festival, they had a few pictures of a few Hollywood stars, but the one picture that stood out by far, was of this Indian actress Aishwarya Rai. By far the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my life (apart for my wife, lol). It seemed the French media agreed with me, they also debuted her as the most beautiful women in the world. To cut a long story short, I went to watch the movie Devdas, with my wife, even though we did not understand the movie as it was in Hindi, reading the sub titles was enough. I can safely say that it is one the best musical movies I have ever watched. During the end of the movie my wife was in tears, the movie had a profound affect on both of us, so much so that we decided to visit India, during our summer holidays; words can't not describe the beauty of this country. There certain places in India, that can only be descried as heaven. I have to travel a lot for my company; India is by far the best country I have ever been to.
During our visit to India, we bought a few CD's. Rough Guide to Bollywood Legends: Lata Mangeshkar. Firstly my wife played the CD, I did not think any thing off it, but one day, during my day of work I was going through my CD collection, and came across this CD. I decided to play it, although I did not understand the meanings of the songs, some of the melodies can only be discarded has hypnotic.
The clarity and power of Lata Mangeshkar's Voice is amazing. She is one of the best female vocalists I have ever herd. On par and even better then Mariah Carey here in the states. I have downloaded a few songs. The best include "Aap Ki Nazron Ne Samjha", "Satyam Shivam Sundaram" and " Kuchh Dil Ne Kaha"
I would recommend that you purchase, this album, (try out the above songs by downloading them, you will be amazed)
I would also recommend that you watch Devdas, and Google up Aishwarya Rai (this women is stunning)
I would also recommend that you visit India, it's a huge country, we have been going for the past 3 years.
