Nationalistic Canticle and Laxmikant-Pyarelal Music

— 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)

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.
