Kalyanji Anandji: Anjane Mein (1978)

Anjane Mein

For some reason, I never used to rate 'Anjane Mein' much; however listening to it now I'm thinking it's kind of alright. Both 'O Meri Jaan' and 'Gayi Kaam Se Yeh Ladki' have loads of neat instrumental bits (the singing parts leave me cold though); a nifty mix of east and west. 'Sachchai Ki Ra Men' and 'Jeevan Ke Sab Sukh Paye Too' are typically lovely Lata ballads and 'Dil Ka Rishta Jod Diya Hai' is bouncy pop with a groovy beat. The title track begins like a 60s cop show theme before heading off in a variety of directions; excellent stuff.

Reassessment pays off.

  1. Jake says nice! Thanks, another great addition to the collection :)

  2. Anything that includes Title Music and Cabaret Dance Music is okay with me :D Thanks PC!

  3. Good point. Although admittedly, the Cabaret Music on this particular title, whilst not bad, seemed to me a bit too pedestrian. Maybe I'm becoming jaded...
