Bappi Lahiri: Tere Pyar Mein (1977)

Tere Pyar Mein

Early Bappi Lahiri soundtracks; I tend to like those. Predating the famous disco-era ones we all know and love (or hate), they were often excellent, and 1977's 'Tere Pyar Mein' (the film apparently released much later) is certainly worthwhile. It's uncharacteristically subtle (except for the irritating 'Ui Amma Ui Amma'); in a way it brings Rajesh Roshan's 'Julie' from a few years prior to mind.

'Aankhon Men Tun' comes with a sublime intro and a melody that reminds me of the Ennio Morricone instrumental 'Ninna Nanna In Blu', which happens to be one of my favourite ever soundtrack moments. Did Bappi draw inspiration from it? I wouldn't put it past him. In any case, this sumptuous lounge tune is among his finest songs. I like the happy version best. 'Aa Aa Meri Jaan' is a sweet pop confection, sung by Priti (aka Preeti) Sagar who did quite a bit of that sort of thing. The gentle 'Bhool Gaye Ham' proves that Bappi could effectively tackle traditional Indian composition, and 'Aankhon Men Hain Aansoo' (another great intro) is a lovely slow waltz. Sadly there aren't many clips to be found on YouTube.
