When a singer of Rekha Bhardwaj's calibre praises a video, you can be sure it is worth listening to. The video in question, which is going steadily viral on Twitter, shows a family singing Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi's 'Aawaz Deke Humen Tum Bulao' from the 1962 movie Professor. The family's melodious rendition of the classic song is winning high praise on Twitter.
The video features Lalchand, a farmer from Punjab who told NDTV that the video was recorded while he and his family were in Rajasthan in June this year. It shows him singing in a field in the village of Ganeshgarh along with his wife. "I love the songs of Shankar-Jaikishan," said the Firozpur resident, referring to the popular composer duo behind 'Aawaz Deke Humen Tum Bulao'.
The video was posted on the microblogging platform this Monday by Twitter user Jitendra S Jorawat, who received it over WhatsApp. "Our farmer brothers enjoy like this in their free time... The way they have rendered this duet is praise-worthy," he wrote in Hindi while sharing the video. Watch it below:
