Nationalistic Canticle and Laxmikant-Pyarelal Music

Nationalistic Canticle and  Laxmikant-Pyarelal Music

India is celebrating #72Republicday today. Laxmikant-Pyarelal have composed some phenomenal nationalistic canticles. 

— Pyar Baantate Chalo Ky Hindy Kya     “Hum Sab Ustad Hai” (1965)

(Kishore Kumar        Asad Bhopali)

One of the rarest of rare Patriotic songs sung by Kishore Kumar. Laxmikant-Pyarelal have composed this song in western beats with  “Rock-N-R0ll” and “Twist” style. “Prelude” of 46 seconds is mesmerizing. Train Sound of Crank-Shaft/Flywheel is brilliantly generated as well as synchronized with the VIOLINS and ACOUSTIC  GUITAR.  One of the best songs filmed on the train. Kishore Kumar is simply awesome,  both in rendering and in acting, as well. The song has a harmonious BONGO DRUM ‘rhythm’. 

— Mere Desh Main Pawan Chale                “Jigri Dost” (1969)

(Mohammad Rafi           Anand Bakshi)

An extremely melodious ‘folkish’ type composition, elaborating Indian Village Culture. Mohammad Rafi simply outstanding. The song is filmed on Jeetendra. 

— Mere Geet Hai Anam,  Anam Shahido Ke Nam       “Jurm Aur Saza” (1974)

(Mohammad Rafi         Ram Bharadwaj)

On The Occasion Of Republic  Day !  Laxmikant-Pyarelal and Mohammad Rafi  A Rare GEM. “Jurm Aur Sazaa” 1974. This  Song Is Awesomely Orchestrated With IRANI SANTOOR and A Melodious Rhythm. The Song Is Written By Ram Bhardwaj (Father Today’s Music Director Vishal Bhardwaj) 

— Fauzi Gaya Jab Gaon Main                  “Aakraman” (1975)

(Kishore Kumar           Anand Bakshi)

Typical ‘Punjabi’ Bhangra composition. 45 seconds of prelude is  orchestrated with the rhythm orchestrated by using  EKTARA /  TANPURA, GHUNGROO BELLS, BANO, NADASWARAM, DHOL as well as awesome Humming from Kishore Kumar. Rajesh Khanna has danced swimmingly on single Leg. 

— Dekho Veer Jawano Aakraman (1975)

Kishore Kumar Anand Bakshi

— Kranti Kranti                                     “Kranti” (1981)

(Manna Dey, N Mukesh, M Kapoor, Lata, S Singh     Santosh Anand)

An extremely melodious song. DHOLAK rhythm,  singing and rhythmic ‘pauses’ in the song gives additional inflection. Lata Mangeshkar’s singing is wonderfully overlapped by CHORUS. Multi-Starrer song, Dilip Kumar, Manoj Kumar, Hema Malini, Shatrughn Sinha, Shashi Kapoor. 

— Mere Desh Premiyon                   “Desh Premi” (1982)

(Mohammad Rafi           Anand Bakshi)

This is patriotic song giving a philosophical touch by Anand Bakshi.

— Dil Diya Hai Jan Bhi Denge                “Karma” (1986)

(Kvitha Krishnamurthy – Mohammad Aziz      Anand Bakshi)

The most popular, widely acclaimed patriotic song composed on BANJO. Many of Laxmikant-Pyarelal compositions are orchestrated with BANJO. This is a very famous song, it can be heard today, 26th January, the republic day and on 15th August, an independent day. Entire song is woven around the glimpses of BANJO. BANJO sounds ear-pleasing in the entire song including the ‘interludes’. Famous BANJO player Mr. Rashid Khan, a regular musician in Laxmikant-Pyarelal orchestra has played the BANJO in this song. It is filmed on Nutan – Dilip Kumar

— Meri Jaan Tiranga Hai           “Tiranga” (1993)

(Mohammad Aziz         Santosh Anand)

Awesomely orchestrated by using Army / Military BIGUL.
