'Jalte Badan' [review]; a film about the perils of drug addiction. They tend to be quite fun. I don't know if the Bollywood ones were made with sincere intentions in mind or if they (too) were just exploitation, but either way, when trip-out songs were required for such films, music directors often excelled.
'Aag Se Aag Bujhale' is no exception. It starts with a long intro (sadly missing from the otherwise fantastic YouTube clip) that has the orchestra in a fast-paced and savage mood, sounding as if Keith Moon and Pete Townshend from The Who are guesting. And it continues with an utterly compelling melody, hypnotic and groovy, interspersed with demented (and loud) instrumental details. Fantastic stuff; if Punky Indian Soul Jazz were a genre, this is the track that would epitomize it.
The whole soundtrack is excellent though; the instrumentals perhaps being the other highlights. Both "Titles" and "Fire Dance" are captivatingly dramatic, as is the ominous horror music making up the majority of "Vada Bhool Na Jana Pt. 2".
