Kalyanji Anandji: Muqaddar Ka Sikandar (1978)

Muqaddar Ka Sikandar

(Been a while since the last post, sorry about that. They're going to be slightly less frequent than they have been over the next couple of months though - I've just bought a new flat and am in the process of selling my old one; that and the whole business of moving is a time consuming affair. Still, I'll try to get an album up every 7 to 10 days or so - but don't go too hard on me should there be longer lapses.)

This one's quite famous, primarily because of the huge disco anthem 'Pyar Zindagi Hai' I think; it is indeed stellar, guaranteed to fill any discerning dancefloor. 'Muqaddar Ka Sikandar' [trailer] [review] has more to offer though: 'Rote Hue Aate Hain Sab' with plenty of funky bounce, 'Zindagi To Bewafa Hai' which is a Hindi death dirge, very melodramatic, and 'O Saathi Re', the loveliest of lounge numbers (I could only find the Kishore Kumar version on YouTube; I think I prefer Asha Bhosle's though). An excellent soundtrack!

Track listing:
1. Kishore Kumar: Rote Hue Aate Hain Sab
2. Asha Bhosle: O Saathi Re
3. Lata Mangeshkar & Kishore Kumar: Salam-E-Ishq
4. Mohd. Rafi & Chorus: Zindagi To Bewafa Hai
5. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle & Mahendra Kapoor: Pyar Zindagi Hai
6. Lata Mangeshkar: Dil To Hai Dil
7. Kishore Kumar: O Saathi Re
8. Hemlata: Wafa Jo Na Ki

  2. pc, you take your time, and congrats on your move. Thanks a million for this one, one of my favorite albums. For years I was after track number 8, it was not on the OSTs before, it's one of the first of many missing songs I bought from the iTMS, interestingly the DVD that was released for this film cut off the intro of that song, but included a different verse. No point in me saying what a fabulous rip, but I'm gonna say it again anyways. THANK YOU!!! For this one and all other treasures you have shared with the world.

  4. Hi - Pretty excited about hearing these albums. for some reason the links won't take me to the easy share site. any reason why it isnt accessible?

  5. The links work fine from this end - could be their servers were down for a bit when you tried it. Or you have some sort of filter or blocker installed in your browser? Hope you manage to get it working.

  6. Far from being an anthem "Pyar Zindagi Hai" is actually an obscure and maybe even despised number of the movie. The rest were huge hits during the release and even to this day.

  7. Really? Wasn't aware of that. Among latter day Bollywood enthusiasts in the West though, "Pyar Zindagi Hai" has definitely been the selling point - going down a storm in clubs.
