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.

Side A

1. Neend Nigahon Se Kho jati Hai - Lata Mangeshkar

2. O Dilwalo Saze Dil Pe Jhoom Lo - Lata Mangeshkar & Chorus

3. Kisi Ko Pata Na Chale - Lata Mangeshkar

Side B

1. Raat Se Kaho Ruke Zara - Lata Mangeshkar

2. Sanam Rah Bhoole Yahan - Lata Mangeshkar

3. Mujhe Dekhiye Main Koi Dastan Hoon - Lata Mangeshkar

4. Patli Kamar Nazuk Umar - Shamshad Begum, Kamal Barot & Chorus

It is A grade music from a B grade movie which was often the case those days.

Hi Squarecut

So true, B grade movies with A grade songs. Now we get A grade movies with B grade songs. Win some lose some I guess.
