MUSIC #90: DHARKAN 1972 (Hindi EP OST)

Yes it’s been a long time.......but.......Don’t get too excited. I am not sure if I will be doing this routinely or if this is just one of my whims but I do know that I have to convert my vinyl music collection to mp3 only because I miss listening to my music when and where I want to. So let’s play it by ear, and I hope you enjoy my “comeback” selection.

Today’s offering is Dharkan (Heart Beat) from composer Ravi, who also wrote or co-wrote most of the lyrics, along with lyricist Prem Dhawan and Ali Jalili. I cannot tell you anything about the movie because I truly cannot remember watching this as a kid as I would have been only 4 at that time. Curious enough, the first Hindi movie I could remember watching is Kati Patang. Anyway, according to the divine Miss G of Memsaab Story (see review HERE), it is obviously no lost as the storyline is a shocker and the only saving grace are the songs. And I wholeheartedly concur. From the bop-py tune of Main to Chala, to the sultry and seductress voice of Asha Bhosle in Jab Tu Neh Kuchh Na Kiya, there is something here to suit everyone. Enjoy.
My verdict – 4 stars

Side A

1.       Main To Chala – Kishore Kumar

2.       Jab Tu Ne Kuchh Na Kiya – Asha Bhosle, Manna Dey and Chorus

Side B

1.       Mere Dost Tujhe – Mohd Rafi

2.       Soja Mere Lal – Lata Mangeshkar

Your absence was deeply felt great upload though I have LP of the same album but EP has better sound quality as LP always recorded on Electronic Stereo.
