Laxmikant Pyarelal: Dil Aur Deewaar (1979)

Dil Aur Deewaar

'Dil Aur Deewaar' contains two songs I like; one good and one fantastic. 'Dhire Dhire Hole Hole' (along with the film's title music which is essentially the instrumental version) is a top pop song with a very catchy, beautiful soaring melody. (What to me at least sound like glitches at 2.01 and 3.56 aren't by the way; I had to double check and they're also in the clip.) The breathtaking 'Yeh Dhuaan' is one of Laxmikant Pyarelal's funkiest tracks; hearing it uncredited you'd be forgiven for thinking it might be Kalyanji Anandji who were responsible. It's chock-full of musical goodness; it's hot, cool, dramatic, raw, raunchy, sexy, sultry; it's superb!

The rest doesn't do a lot for me I'm afraid. The cover art raises a few questions though...

Track listing:
1. Kishore Kumar & Lata Mangeshkar: Dhire Dhire Hole Hole
2. Asha Bhosle: Yeh Dhuaan
3. Lata Mangeshkar & Asha Bhosle: Tod De Too Is Bandhan Ko
4. Title Music
5. Kishore Kumar: Mujhse Poochhe
6. Mohd. Rafi: Logon Yeh
7. Mohd. Rafi & Chorus: Wo Shola Badan

  2. Never heard about this.....many thanks for sharing such rare albums !!

  3. Woah - the cover art doesn't have much correlation with the soundtrack! But thanks for this - I can safely say I have never heard of this soundtrack or movie so always good to hear something new! :-)

  4. Superb PC! But it is irony that we usually listen only popular albums and when a film does not do well at box office and its music usually also goes flop though it is not the case with every OST, and Dil Aur Deewar is also a victim of this trend. It has few really good songs and song "Ye Duhan Kanha" can be rated as one of the all time great Asha Bhosle songs.

  6. Sorry to hear that. I've just checked and I get direct access to the download files without any installs or exes, so it might be a problem at your end.
