Hey ! Rachana! As always a Unique Question only Alice Can Conjure UP :-)))) As Mukthaji has already given a beautiful narration of why songs were and are picturised on boats,I don't want to repeat the same again. My two favorite film songs featured on a boat are Pyar ki kashthi mein from the film Kaho Naa Pyar Hain and Chingari Koi Bhadki from Amar Prem. However I would like to elaborately mention Kashmir Ki Kali which literally means Bud of Kashmir! Sharmila is kind of my crush du jour, so how could I not love watching her twirl around all pouty in traditional Kashmiri clothing here Shammi he was cute and loveable, chasing Sharmila with an intensity that was entirely sweet, rather than creepy-stalkerish His comedy antics were genuinely funny - his pretend madness and pretend drunkenness, all to fend off the interest of girls he doesn't want to marry. His gyrations are always a little spastic but they are clearly not uncontrolled - he is talented at physical comedy. Kashmir itself was ...more

Two hearts on their heydays of youth never try to spend their precious moments of romantic life thinking of practical or rational living as they are on pinnacle point of spirits and it is the echo of nature that they ought to go on the safari of dreamland, just two. In ancient period since there were no other means to travel except water ways, naturally ships became unparallel mean to make it possible. As ships seems to have a touch of business, small boats, yachts and oaring kind ways were to turn into friendly acquisition for personal usage, and those were Greek (later joined by Elizabethan) poets who wrote elegies, ballads, sonnets on lovers and what else they could have think to paint or to describe romance of lovers by using images of their travelling in ships, boats and gondolas?

There are so many of them but the instant memories this question derives are ...
"Tareef karoon kya uski ...jisne tumhe banaya"....Shammi Kapoor wooing a petite and young Sharmila Tagore in Kashmir Ki Kali
and the second one a broken hearted Uttam Kumar lipsyncing to "Dil Aisa Kisine Mera Toda...Amanush Bana Ke Choda" in Amamanush By Shakti Samata.

Sailing on the water on a boat, kishti or naiyya or even a hip or a huge ocean liner is itself a romantic experience according to me. AS he y so smooth sailing so also when love happens it is said to sail smoothly in the beginning. Thats why love is so well expressed on a boat, a kishti......... This is just my own view Rachana :)))

AS for the songs the following come to my mind instantly

1. Chindgari koi bhadke...Amar Prem
2. O Majhi re...Khushboo
3. My heart will go on...Celine Dion..Titanic
4 And of course the song in your question Do lafzo ki hai di i kahani..I always remember this song and from the moment I heard it while watching the movie, 'The Great Gambler' it has remained embedded in my memory.

I have 3 such songs which inspired, enthralled or interested me year after year in my life... and still continue to do so... ... ...

Why is Love so well expressed on a Boat, a Kishti, ya nayya? ... Well, :))) probably around boats we have have less number of prying eyes & investigating ears... I think water and moon always had some relations with our emotions... I can think of only this reason.

1.In Hindi film Safar there is a song where many boats are passing and Rajesh Khanna and Sharmila sit on the bank of the river... One of the boatman sings the song. Sung by Manna Dey, written by Indivar and composed by Kalyanji Anandji --- "nadiya chale chale re dhara, chanda chale chale re tara, tujhko chalna hoga, tujhko chalna hoga"... the message that river, moon, stars, streams, etc. keep on moving under all circumstances so we humans must also never stop till our last breath come what may. Huge message for living life.

2. Hindi Film Khushbu, "O majhi re, apna kinara nadiya ki d ...more

Romance at its best is witnessed in nature....each n every part of nature defines wat love is all about...whether its d curve of a hilly road through thick forest ( sweet but dangerous) or a river making its way anyhow to reach its destination...love find it much more compatible to blossom wid nature...people who fall in love start feeling at a particular moment ,as if that world is consisted of two people only...they need to understand each other, to feel each other's presence well and for this moments like spending sometime on a boat in d middle of river perhaps cud be one of the best...remembering a song from Amanush" Dil aisa kisine mera toda, Ek bhale manush ko amanush bane ke choda" picturised early in the morning in the movie starring Uttam Kumar and Sharmila Tagore...some of the best of the songs have already been mentioned by our fellow friends...
