Laxmikant Pyarelal: Sharafat (1970) / Salil Chowdhury: Mere Apne (1971)


Mere Apne

Been a while, sorry about that. Busy days. But here to tide you over until I get back on something approaching a regular schedule are a couple of singles I found in the back of the 7" box.

Neither of the 'Sharafat' [review] songs are particularly noteworthy; 'Pehle Na Dekha' is an OK ballad, but forgettable. 'Mere Apne' [review] is a bit more interesting; 'Hal Chal Thik Thak Hai' is chirpy and kind of sweet, and 'Roz Akel Aae' has a nice, trippy feel to it. No pictures sleeves on either I'm afraid.


Track listing, Sharafat:
1. Lata Mangeshkar: Pehle Na Dekha
2. Lata Mangeshkar: Raja Jani

Track listing, Mere Apne:
1. Kishore Kumar & Mukesh: Hal Chal Thik Thak Hai
2. Lata Mangeshkar: Roz Akel Aae


  1. Thanks PC. Great to have you posting again. :)

  2. Hi PC, I actually did not mind 'Raja Jani' and quite liked 'Roz Akel Aae'. And I agree with Mr N - great to have you posting again.

  3. Welcome back PC!
    Interesting forthcoming attractions.. Sharafat was an all female score.. and did well when it came out.. can very well understand you not taking to it.. coz the theme of the movie is such that wont find appeal with broader spectrum of audience in these times!
    Thanx as always!

  4. What about the popular song of this film" Koi hota jisko apna by Kishore KUmar..Its on youtube, is it on the Record though?

  5. Nope, it's not on the record, otherwise I would have posted it.
