'The Great Gambler' [title sequence] [review]: A late 70s RD Burman effort, and as is expected of the vintage, lots of interesting stuff going on; great grooves a plenty. There's Oriental drama in 'Raqqasa Mera Naam', folky pop in 'Pahle Pahle Pyar Ki Mulaqatan Yaad Hain', groovy night club stylings in 'Tum Kitne Din Baad Mile', psychedelic exotica in 'Dance Music', and all of the above plus more in 'O Diwano Dil Sambhalo' (best track). Oddly, it's the score's hit, 'Do Lafzon Ki Hai Dil Ki Kahani' that I find the least interesting. Even if it is, admittedly, rather pretty. So, an excellent soundtrack.
