This 1974 effort is a companion piece of sorts to 'Jawani Diwani' from a couple of years earlier. Both films involve the same producer, director and lead actors, and there seem to be recurring characters... I'll let others either confirm or dismiss any direct thread between the two though. Because all that concerns us here is that both scores are by the same musical genius, and that the 'Dil Diwana' soundtrack is pretty much as good as its precursor.
Essentially it's RD Burman at his prime, when he could pack a million different ideas into one song, and still make it sound coherent. And absolutely fabulous. 'Main Ladki Tu Ladka' is thus one of those songs that itself is worth a soundtrack's price of admission. But the rest is great too: 'Kisise Dosti Karlo' and 'Sun Nita Main Tere Pyar Ke Geet' are both lively and hummable Bollywood pop songs to get your toes tapping, and the sparsely arranged (RD knew restraint when required) 'Ja Re Ja Beimann' would be my favourite track on most other albums. So a top soundtrack through and through.
