Kalyanji Anandji: Hera Pheri (1976)

Hera Pheri

'Hera Pheri' initially came to my attention due to its title music, Kalyanji Anandji's instrumental reworking of Joe Simon's 'Cleopatra Jones' theme. Both original and copy are fantastic blaxploitation workouts, and the latter is undeniably this album's selling point. That said, I'm very fond of Asha Bhosle's contributions to the soundtrack as well; the upbeat and funky 'Aapka Sarkar Kya Kuchh', and the suggestive, sultry sounding 'Mujhe Pyar Me Khath'. There's a great sense of drama inherent in both.

Track listing:
1. Title Music
2. Kishore Kumar & Mahendra Kapoor: Dialogue - Waqt Ki Hera Pheri Hai
3. Asha Bhosle: Dialogue - Mujhe Pyar Me Khath
4. Kishore Kumar: Dialogue - Barson Purana Yeh Yaarana
5. Asha Bhosle: Dialogue - Aapka Sarkar Kya Kuchh
6. Lata Mangeshkar: Dialogue - Kaun Anjame Ulfat

  4. 'Barson Purana Yeh Yaarana' is one of my favorite/best/underrated melancholy Kishore Kumar songs in existence.

    Love this album and the film is a trippy fun time as well, thanks for posting!

  7. I always wanted all the tracks from this movie. Hella rare!
    I donno why but "Barson Purana" sounds a lot like "Jaane Jaana" from Jaanbaaz (1986). Like, specially pay attention to the lines ".....jaise meraa rab rootha" from Barson Purana and compare to "....kya too meraa laage" from Jaane Jaana.

    Hear anything similar?? Both are KA house productions.

    Harshi :)

  13. Thank YOu!

    But why do the Bollywood blogs never rip at 320kbps? The quality of the recordings is harsh enough and the mp3 compression takes away some of the beauty!

    any chance you can start uploading in 320kbps?

  14. Nope, afraid not. For (amongst others) the reasons outlined here.

  16. This is getting tiring to be honest. Which part of "no re-uploads" is it you don't understand?

NOTE: If you plan on requesting a re-upload or a specific future soundtrack, please read the FAQ-page first, thank you.
