Kalyanji Anandji: Sachaa Jhutha (1970)

Sachaa Jhutha

'Sachaa Jhutha' is another Kalyanji Anandji score that's sought after... Asha Bhosle's 'Karle Pyar Karle' being the main selling point I think. It's a decent enough Hindi rock 'n' roll number, but I've heard better. 'Kehdo Kehdo' also has a bit of a beat to it, the second 'Meri Bahenian' is quite bouncy... and that's about it. So an OK but never great album.

Side one (tracks 1-3) has dodgy sound quality btw - possibly just my copy; on the other hand the vinyl looks OK so it might be the entire pressing. Anyone know, or have a better one?

Track listing:
1. Asha Bhosle: Karle Pyar Karle
2. Mohd. Rafi & Lata Mangeshkar: Yunhi Tum Mujhse Baat Karti Ho
3. Kishore Kumar & Lata Mangeshkar: Kehdo Kehdo
4. Kishore Kumar: Dil Sachaa Aur Chehra Jhutha
5. Kishore Kumar: Meri Bahenian (Part I)
6. Kishore Kumar: Meri Bahenian (Part II)


  1. I think this may have been reissued by Universal of India... or something... but not with original artwork. I like it better your way.

  2. Thanks again PC
    Cannot say how much I appreciate all your posts :)

  3. PC where do you want me to mail you the good copies of Kehdo Kehdo and Meri Behenian (part 1 and 2).. of Sachaa Jhutha?

    Leave your message here. I will send a test message to you before I mail the files.

    kkd :)

  4. I'm glad you posted this. I was actually going to suggest you write a piece on this as it's one of my favourites.

    Since it seems you're not instantly sold on all Kalyanji Anandji stuff, may i suggest you give Katilon Ki Kaatil a go at some point. It's wonderful funky and moogy.

  5. I falled in love with asha with karle pyar karle

  6. Hi PC,
    Would you please upload the good copies (as mentioned by the anonymous poster on Nov 30), if possible?

    Thank you,
