Laxmikant Pyarelal: Kala Dhanda Goray Log (1985)

Kala Dhanda Goray Log

You don't generally compare Laxmikant Pyarelal to Bappi Lahiri, yet 'Kala Dhanda Goray Log' reminds me, at least in part, of the previous score posted. It isn't a career highlight – the mid-1980s was hardly the best period for great soundtracks – but there are a few good moments on it.

It's quite percussive, persistently so on 'Ye Dastoor Hai Hazoor Kisi Ka Kya Qasoor' and 'Jab Jab Kisi Ladke Ko Kisi Ladki'. Waltz-timed 'Bul Bul Yeh Desh Paraya Hai' has a pleasant melody and loud drums; 'Allah Hoo Allah Hoo' comes with a Middle-Eastern feel. But the real highlight is 'Sha Shangrila Sha Shangrila' with its booming disco beat, electro effects and Annette Pinto's powerhouse vocals. An excellent track, which I wish had been a bit longer.

Track listing:
1. S. Janaki: Ye Dastoor Hai Hazoor Kisi Ka Kya Qasoor
2. Annette: Sha Shangrila Sha Shangrila
3. Shabbir Kumar: Bul Bul Yeh Desh Paraya Hai
4. Master Aziz & Chorus: Allah Hoo Allah Hoo
5. Anuradha Paudwal & Shabbir Kumar: Jab Jab Kisi Ladke Ko Kisi Ladki
