Yeh Rastey Hain Pyar Ke (This Path Of Love) is by composer Ravi and lyrics by Rajinder Krishan. I think this is one of Ravi’s finest works (in the classical 1960’s filmi style music) and I for one cannot fault this album. However, if you are looking for an album to bob to, this ain’t that. Most of the songs are sentimental in nature although ‘Jane Jaa Paas Aao Aao Na’ does have a slightly faster beat and some very amorous lyrics! ‘Tum Jis Pe Nazar Dalo’ is the only fast paced song in the album.
Ravi chose Asha Bhosle and Mohd Rafi to sing the whole OST – a wise choice as they both do credit to the music. I just love Mohd Rafi singing ‘Zulf Laharai Teri Aur Meri’....brings goosebumps to my skin....especially when he says, “Koi mujhse puchee, ke tum meri kya ho....mera pyar ki, ek haseen iltija ho....” (Someone ask me, who are you to me.....you are my love’s, most beautiful entreaty/desperate plea....). Sigh.....
I give this album 4 stars plus.
