Sathyam: Cheppindi Chestaa (1978)

Cheppindi Chestaa

Track 1 off this soundtrack was included on the second 'Doob Doob O' Rama' compilation a few years back. It didn't really belong there; the series was subtitled 'Filmsongs from Bollywood', and as 'Cheppindi Chestaa' is a Telugu film, it's actually Tollywood.

Therefore the score shouldn't really be on this blog either... but I'm not that particular. And besides, 'China Daani Chirunavvulu' is great. Pretty much in the same tradition as contemporary Hindi songs, especially as done by RD Burman (and doesn't the cover have a 'Hum Kisise Kum Nahin' feel to it?); good fun.

None of the other tracks do anything for me though.

Track listing:
1. S.P. Balasubrahmanyam, Vijayalakshmi Sarma & Chorus: China Daani Chirunavvulu
2. P. Susheela, S.P. Balasubrahmanyam & Chorus: Happy Birthday
3. P. Susheela, Vijayalakshmi Sarma & Chorus: Kanne Pillalam
4. P. Susheela & S.P. Balasubrahmanyam: Koti Vuhala
5. S.P. Balasubrahmanyam & Chorus: Okaanoka Kanne Chilaka
6. P. Susheela & Vijayalakshmi Sarma: Aadaala Paadaala
