Naushad: Amar (1954/1977)

I know, an other one from Naushad, Amar is a pretty good soundtrack. There are few of the songs that I really got addicted too. The first is ''Tere Sadqe Balam'' it sounds great and also means something. In short, in means, take advantage of every happy moment because you never know if you will have an other like it. The second I am addicted too is ''Na Shikwa Hai Koi'' , I just love to listen to it. I wish I knew what it meant? (probably something sad)

All the songs have female vocals except for one. "Insaf Ka Mandir Yeh" is not even sung by Dilip Kumar's character, yet it describes his emotional struggle. It's a good song, but I find it more meaningful when I watch the clip.

No sitars for poor Nimmi's songs. "Oodi Oodi Chhai Ghata" is playful."Umangon Ko Sakhi" is nice, and the village song "Ek Baat Kahoon Mere Piya" is boring.

For "The sad songs" like "Na Milta Gham To" and "Janewale Se Mulaqat", I like "Radha Ke Pyare Krishna Kanhai" the best.

Basically this album is for people who like sweet soft melodies. Tell me what you think.

I hope the lack of comments doesn't mean people are sleeping on this one... because if they are they're certainly missing a trick. Great songs as you say, in addition to a killer 'Dance Music'... top album!
