  104. 104. 28  In the 1941 film, Jhoola, the male lead Ramesh rents a room next to his lady love. Once, when she’s on the balcony of her house, he rushes inside to compose a song about her. His charpai breaks but he’s not ruffled. Until he decides he needs to have a bath. The cold water makes him shiver, and so the song that was sung relatively melodiously until now, becomes more of ‘gasping’ than singing.  This song was recreated for another film nearly three decades from the original, including the gasping sequence, albeit triggered by a fierce rivalry, rather than the cold water in case of the latter.  Which film and which song ?
