Laxmikant Pyarelal: Khazana (1978)


Cheesy music in a cheesy cover. 'Khazana' is short (it's a 45 RPM mini-album; several soundtracks from that period were) and sweet. Well, kind of. 'Ham Tabiyat Ke Bade Rangin Hain' is the sort of stupidly catchy number that gets in your head (and on your wick) given enough listens. 'Khazane Ki Chabi Mere Paas Hai' has a great dramatic intro and could've been a contender, there are some cools breaks in it, but... I dunno, the verdict's not in yet, but I think something's lacking for it to be a truly great track.

BTW, it's the IMDB and not me who has the date wrong on this film.

Track listing:
1. Mohd. Rafi & Chorus: : Ham Bhi Musafir, Tum Bhi Musafir
2. Shailendra Singh, Amit Kumar, Anwar & Chorus: : Ham Tabiyat Ke Bade Rangin Hain
3. Asha Bhosle: Khazane Ki Chabi Mere Paas Hai
4. Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Mohd. Rafi & Chorus: Mehfil Men Sayano Ki, Diwana Aa Gaya


  1. Superb - short but very sweet and intense - Thanks

  2. Could you please re-upload the album?
