Laxmikant-Pyarelal using Huge, Enriched and Melodious Orchestra. “BOBBY” 1973.

हम तुम एक कमरे मैं बंद हो !! और चाबी खो जाये !! ‘BOBBY’ 1973.

(Rishi Kapoor & Dimple Kapadia)

One of the best songs composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal using Huge, Enriched and Melodious Orchestra arrangements. It has >>Three differently tuned “Antaras” + Three differently composed “Interludes”…MESMERISING ORCHESTRA arrangements.

Toe Stepping RHYTHM :- Intermixing of IRANI SANTOOR”+ ACCORDION + BONGO Drums.Singing “Pauses”. There are many singing “Pauses” of 4 seconds, in the song. The First is at 0.27 seconds, immediately after singing..हम तुम s s s . Highlighting the wonderfully orchestrated ‘rhythm’.(हम तुम ढण ढण टण टण, ढण ढण टण टण, ढण ढण टण टण, एक कमरे मैं बंद हो ढण ढण टण टण, ढण ढण टण टण, ढण ढण टण टण

First Interlude:- Beautiful display of ACCORDION, GUITAR and VIOLINS.

Second Interlude:- VIOLA, IRANI SANTOOR Lata’s beautiful sound (आलाप) ..

Third Interlude:- ACOUSTIC GUITAR, SAXOPHONE,, VIOLINS, MOUTHORGAN, FRENCH HORN and VIOLAS.Rhythmic “Pause”. at 6.32 for 2 seconds.

Postlude:- ACCORDION + SAXOPHONE.An uncomplicated tune with simple words is mellifluously orchestrated with TOE STEPPING RHYTHM.

Another specialty of this song is the “OVERLAPPING” sound effects of various instruments in all the ‘interludes’.

I would rate this song is one of the finest compositions from the desk of Laxmikant-Pyarelal, in terms or orchestra arrangements.

FINALLY>>>You cannot listen to this song without the Original Orchestra.
Music:- Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Lyrics:- Anand Bakshi
Singer:- Lata Mangeshkar & Shailendra Singh.

  1. Such was the power of Laxmi-Pyare that the song is “inexpressible” without the original orchestra!!!
