Many songs on this album. Not all great, but still good. The classic "Mujhe Kisi Se Pyar Ho Gaya" is one of my favorites. As well as "Barsaat Men Ham Se Mile" which are the songs that stand out on the record.
"Palti Kamar Hai" is most appreciated, while watching the film. The longing village girl (played by Nimmi) sadly waits the return of her lover, but in a parallel montage, you see he is dancing with an other woman without any care in the world. Great use for a song in a flick.
Great duet, "Chhod Gaye Balam" Lata and Mukesh's vocals are great. Again, this is better while watching the film. This is not the case of the film being better that the soundtrack, it's just that the images and the songs really do complete each other.
I also enjoy "Ab Mera Kaun Sahara", even if it is a sad song. Well when you thing about it about 90% of the film, the characters are kind of depressed. It's melancholic (Not as much as Aag, but still) and a romantic view of despair and seeing no hope, but looking and singing really well as you do it.
I recommend this soundtrack , but I recommend the film (because you have both) more. Also because the imagery (especially the lighting) is brilliant.
