Today's offering is Lootera, a 1965 soundtrack from Laxmikant-Pyarelal and lyrics by Anand Bakshi (except for Raat Se Kaho Ruke Zara' which is by Asad Bhopali). This is a request from Gabrujat.
I have to admit I cannot remember listening to any of these songs as a child and the only reason I have this record is because it was on a list of freebies to choose from my record purchases. But having said this, I really do not mind the songs and they do keep in the tradition of the songs during the arly and mid 60s. I guess one has to hear them a few times to truly appreciate the songs. I let you be the judge of it. I give this soundtrack 3.5 stars.
Note: Notice that there are no male songs in this soundtrack? Interesting.
