One of the most outstanding pieces of music of all time in hindi films. A truly mind-blowing medley.
If you haven't heard this brilliant medley, your hindi-movie experience is incomplete. This is one extraordinary, super-saturated musical extravaganza. Right from the first note of the b-flat trumpet, accompanied by the latin congas and the electric-guitar, through the ballad-ish 'chaand mera...', the fast-tempo 'aa dil...', to the Afrobeat-ish 'tum kya...' and the rhythmic 'mil gaya..' ....it has the stamp of Pancham's unbridled flamboyance.
And the visually stunning 'shining-seventies' stuff. The sunglasses, the puffed hair styles, the bell-bottoms, the garish sets. That's quintessential bollywood of the 70s. Sheer nostalgia. Takes you right back to the good old days. And.....the absolutely charming, boyish Rishi Kapoor. His sweet smile must have had girls weak in the knees. And his dance. What immaculate timing. Sheer delight. Nobody was as natural in songs, especially qawwalis, as he was.
The best of the best hindi music. Enjoy!
