Both the films, “Bobby” and “Zanjeer” celebrated the “Golden Jubilee”..(One year run in cinema hall).

The biggest news in the Hindi Film Music for this year, were

1) Laxmikant-Pyarelal refusing to Producer Premji’s big budget and prestigious movie directed by Gulzar “MEERA” ( earlier LP had worked with Premji for the movies like “Mastana”, “Dushman”, “Dost” and “Majboor” all were musically hit). Firstly it was Lata Mangeshkar who refused to sing the songs for “Meera”, as she had sung enough songs/bhajans on Meera. Finally the music was scored by Sitar Maestro Pt. Ravi Shankar and all the songs were sung by Vani Jairam.

2) Laxmikant-Pyarelal also refused to score the music for H.S Rawal’s big budget movie “Laila Majanu”. Earlier LP/HS Rawal had worked for “Mehaboob Ki Mehandi”, a super musical hit with some immortal songs. LP said they are very busy for other big projects and convinced H S Rawal to go ahead with Madan Mohan with whom Pyarelal had worked as a musician for many years. Moreover Madan Mohan was less busy on those days. It is unfortunate that Madan Mohan died halfway through the film. Later it was Jaidev who completed the remaining job for the film.

This year too Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Madan Mohan continued to work with Mohammad Rafi, while other contemporary music directors have already forgotten him. Laxmikant-Pyarelal gave some good songs for Rafi, without damaging the giant popularity Kishore Kumar.

The best award for the music unanimously went to Khayyam, his first big award, for his excellent work in ”Kabhi Kabhi”. Beating R D Burman’s “Mehbooba”, Kalyanji-Anandji’s “Bairaag”, Ravindra Jain’s “Chit Chor” and Madan Mohan’s “Mousam”.

This year’s national award for the best singer went to Sulakshna Pandit for her song Tu Hi Sagar Hai Tu Hai Kirana Dhoondta Hai Tu Kiska Sahara..(also one of my favorite songs) for the film “Sankalp”. This film too has music by Khayyam.

This year witnessed the death of great singer Mukesh .

After failing miserably on the acting part Subhash Ghai emerged as a director. “Kalicharan” became the first film.

Off course Laxmikant-Pyarelal have scored the music for all these four films.

Mohammad Rafi bounced back with the songs of “Amar Akbar Anthony”, “Dharm Veer”, “Chacha Bhatija” “Parvarish” (all have music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal). “Laila Majnu” (Madan Mohan) and “Hum Kisise Kam Nahin” (R D Burman). Music Director Ravi‘ s Aadmi Sadak Ka (Aaj Mere Yaar Ki Shadi Hai)

The association of Manmohan Desai (MKD films) and Laxmikant-Pyarelal lasted till the end of the century and their last film was released in 1998, “Deewana-Mastana”, Directed by David Dhavan, once an assistant to Manmohan Desai.

Mohammad Rafi wins the best singer award for Kya Hua Tera Vada..

Laxmikant-Pyarelal wins the best music award, the duo’s 4th award, for “AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY”..after the gap of 8 years. Beating R D Burman’s “Hum Kisise Kum Nahin” and “Kinara”, Jaidev’s “Aalap” and Rajesh Roshan’s “Swami”.

Earlier LP have won the award for the best music for ”Dosti”.1964, ”Milan”..1967 and ”Jeene Ki Raah”..1969…. They certainly deserved the awards for the best music earlier too, for the films like “Intqaam”, “Shor”, “Do Raaste”, “Bobby”, “Daag” and many more…Finally justice was done.Amitabh Bachchan also wins his first award as an actor for “Amar Akbar Anthony”…

Finally it was an “Amar Akbar Anthony” and Laxmikant-Pyarelal dominated year…
