Rahul Dev Burman: Kasme Vaade (1978)

TITLE

'Kasme Vaade' is another one of those RD Burman soundtracks that’s impossible to dislike yet difficult to get really excited by. The songs are kind of nice; 'Kasme Vaade Nibhayenge Hum', 'Gum Sum Kyon Hai' and 'Aati Rahengi Baharen' are poppy and pleasant, 'Mile Jo Kadi Kadi' has a likeable groove (traditional, not Western) and 'Kal Kya Hoga' is a typically Burmanesque mishmash of styles and themes. So what’s wrong then? I’m not sure. It’s hard to explain… perhaps there’s just not enough passion. I have no idea what RD’s brief (or mindset) was for this one, and I may be wrong but I get the sense of it being created on autopilot. It sounds adequate; not particularly great, but good enough.

And is that really good enough?
