O.P. Nayyar: Tumsa Nahin Dekha (1957/1978)

Tumsa Nahin Dekha

A short and sweet oldie from the King of Rhythm, O.P. Nayyar. (I had meant to post it last week but noticed at the last minute there were glitches in the initial rip. Hopefully it's OK now). There's nothing on 'Tumsa Nahin Dekha' that amazes me in a big way, but for vintage sounding songs and nice rhythms, you could do a lot worse. Best track is the bouncy 'Aaye Hain Door Se', with 'Jawanian Yeh Mast Mast' running a close second.

Track listing:
1. Mohd. Rafi: Tumse Nahin Dekha
2. Asha Bhosle & Mohd. Rafi: Aaye Hain Door Se
3. Asha Bhosle & Mohd. Rafi: Dekho Kasam Se
4. Mohd. Rafi: Jawanian Yeh Mast Mast
5. Mohd. Rafi: Chhupne Wale
6. Mohd. Rafi & Asha Bhosle: Sar Par Topi


  1. Thanks. Another nice one from an early Shammi film.

  2. Soothing and enchanting for me. Not too peppy or anything from the Nayyar house but still a great movie with a pleasant soundtrack. I wonder whats next in store for all of us eh PC? ;)

    Thanks a bunch. Keep up the great work.

    Harshi :)

  3. In general, or at least often, what's next in store can be glimpsed in the gallery

  4. Oh BE STILL MY HEART. Love the cover photo!

    These songs are gorgeous, especially in the context of the film. Thanks :-)

  5. Hey PC!
    Just was curious to know that do you have Love Story, Silsila, Lawaaris, Namak Halaal, Prem Rog in your collection?
