Hemant Kumar: Sahib, Bibi Aur Gulam (1962/1970)

Sahib, Bibi Aur Gulam

'Sahib, Bibi Aur Gulam' [review]: A nice one from Hemant Kumar; old school, charming, sweet. And I like Geeta Dutt. I don't have a lot featuring her, but what I do is generally lovely. 'Piya Aiso Jiya Men' (especially) and 'Na Jao Saiyan Chhod Ke Baiyan' are no exceptions.

(Capsule review, designed to facilitate catching up on posting.)

  1. Thank you for posting this one. This movie is one of the best that I've seen, though so terribly sad. I wrote about it here:


    I'd consider "Sakhiya Aaj Mujhe Neend Nahi Aayegi" to be the hit from this, but that's partly because hearing it always brings to mind that fantastic mujra scene with Minoo Mumtaz.

  2. yay - been waiting for a new post! amazing cover art.

  3. Avocado Kid: It's a generic reissue cover (previously seen on Dharmatma and Sambandh) which I'm not very fond of to be honest. Parties, Sarees and Melodies posted the original.

  4. I've been searching for sahil ki taraf kashti le chal (unreleased song) - Sahib Biwi aur Ghulam - 1962 - Hemant Kumar - Shakeel Badayuni
    for a long time! if someone has it do ping me.

  5. Just when I think I've seen the grooviest album cover or typeface, another one comes along.

  6. Do you happen to have the siddartha sountrack by hemant kumar....thanks very much for the great music
