The list has no end. 

1) Baar  Baar Din Ye  Aaye     (FARZ, 1967)

 (Anand Bakshi   Mohammad Rafi)     (JEETENDRA  BABITA)

Universally HIT as BIRTHDAY song. “Prelude” of 54 seconds set up the mood for this beautiful song. Wonderfully orchestrated with VIOLINS, ACOUSTIC GUITAR, PIANO and BONGO DRUMS in rhythm.Certainly orchestra arrangements have ‘SYMPHONY’ touch. 

Lyrics  overflowing with Love. A timeless masterpiece.

2) Sawan Ka Mahina        (MILAN, 1967)

(Anand Bakshi   Mukesh – Lata)         (NUTAN   SUNIL DUTTA)

Milan”, starring Sunil Dutt – Nutan, was a musical blockbuster movie of the year 1967. The song “ सावन का महीना पवन करे सोर “ stormed the nation.  An inordinately popular song, till date. Exceptionally melodious duet. Beautiful DHOLAK rhythm.  Beautifully orchestrated musical instruments,  MANDOLIN, FLUTE, symphony VIOLINES overlapping the FLUTE.  Second ‘interlude’ again symphony style VIOLINS, RUBAB with overlapping sound effects of FLUTE. In the third Interludes’ are orchestrated in ‘western’ style with no ‘rhythm’. First ‘interlude’ have ‘interlude’ again VIOLINS in symphony style. The song topped the 1967 Binaca Geetmala Finals. Filmed on  Sunil Dutt and Nutan.

3) Dil Ne Dil Ko Pukara    “Do Raaste”  1969

(Anand Bakshi    Rafi – Lata)                         (RAJESH KHANNA   MUMTAZ)

This super hit song which has class and mass appeal. You can here the glimpses of Shiv Kumar Sharma’s SANTOOR in between the song. Inordinately melodious, fascinatingly composed duet, filmed on Rajesh Khanna-Mumtaz. Beautifully orchestrated “interludes” with VIOLINS, FLUTE and SANTOOR, in particular the synchronism of VIOLINS with SANTOOR in first / third as well as FLUTE with SANTOOR in second interlude. Another beauties of this graceful duet arehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kjkg9NlUpeM the ‘stroke’ of SANTOOR with DHOLAK, at the beginning of each of the ‘antara’’ as well as ‘pauses’ given by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammad Rafi, for 4 seconds, to highlight Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s ‘rhythm’, intermixing of  DHOLAK – SANTOOR, in the middle of each of ‘antares’.  (first at 2.44). The rhythm patterns for ‘interludes’ (BONGO DRUMS) are different from that of ‘antara’/’mukhda’ (DHOLAK).

4)  Aaja Teri Yaad Aayee         “Charas”  1976

(Anand Bakshi       Rafi – Lata – Anand Bakshi)         (DHARMENDRA  HEMA MALINI)

Laxmikant Pyarelal delivers yet another masterpiece which proves again why they were the king of hindi film music for almost three and half decades. Orchestrated with symphony style VIOLINS and CELLOS. SARANGI, BANJO, FLUTE and SANTOOR are awesomely instrumented in the interludes. Mesmerizing DHOLAK rhythm. 

5) Dafli Wale Dafli Baja         “Sargam”  1979

(Anand Bakshi        Lata – Rafi)                          (RISHI KAPOOR   JAYA PRADA)

The sounds of the DAFLI (Hand Drum) and the GHUNGAROO (Ankle Bells) are beautifully synchronised to create an appropriate “rhythm” for this extremely melodious song. VIOLINS are awesomely orchestrated in the ‘interludes’. Whenever Laxmikant-Pyarelal composed music, they always took careful consideration of the plot outline of the film. That may not seem like a big deal but it is when there are few music directors in Bollywood who don’t have even the faintest idea of what the film that they are producing music for is about. Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar excel in the songs they sing. Song is shoot in Srinagar, Kashmir. 

6) Salamat Rahe Dostana Hamara  “DOSTANA”  1980

(Anand Bakshi    Rafi – Kishore)          (AMITABH BACHCHAN   SHATRUGHN SINHA)

One of the most popular male duets, on ‘friendship’. Very simple tune and composition effortlessly rendered by legends Rafi – Kishore. Effectively acted by Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughn Sinha. Mellifluously orchestrated in Symphony style VIOLINS.
