Laxmikant Pyarelal: Dushmun (1973)


Another score with a great instrumental, and not very much else. 'Dushmun' [review] has loads of dialogue, and songs that are mostly nondescript and forgettable; 'Main Ne Dekha Tu Ne Dekha' being only a tad more interesting than the rest.

'Title Music' is what's worth the price of admission. It sounds a bit like Ennio Morricone guesting on the 'Dharmatma' soundtrack; a rolling rhythm, hypnotic snake charmer's flute, atmospheric strings and all sorts of delectable details. Wonderful stuff!

Track listing:
1. Title Music
2. Kishore Kumar: Sachchai Chhup Nahi Sakti
3. Lata Mangeshkar: Balma Sipahiya
4. Lata Mangeshkar: Paisa Phenko Tamasha Dekho
5. Lata Mangeshkar: Dekho Dekho Dekho Biscope Dekho
6. Lata Mangeshkar & Kishore Kumar: Main Ne Dekha Tu Ne Dekha


  1. I LOVE Sachchai Chhup Nahi of my favorite Rajesh Khanna songs. And the Mumtaz "Dekho Dekho" is lovely too.

    Look forward v.v. much to the Title Music of course! Thanks :)

  2. I'm happy that others are enjoying the tracks I don't necessarily like :-)

  3. Hey PC!
    Wonderful stuff! This is one of the biggest soundtrack of early 70's! Thanks once again.

  4. Another gift from PC :)
    Thank you !

    Harshi :)

  5. Hello PC,
    just posted a vinyl Lp from Shankar-Jaikishan - Pagla Kahin Ka...small payback for all your past uploads :)

  6. Last track by Latji and Kishore Kumaar is definitely the best song of this album
