bahut nikle mere ARMAAN

now the title is obviously misleading...

i have always thought that Honey Irani's film Armaan's music by Shankar,Ehsaan,Loy is the most under-estimated music of the trio. if u recollect it had some amazing numbers - "tu hi bata" - by roopkumar rathod- o how it causes ebb and tide in emotions when i hear it. the use of saxophone and violin in the jugalbandi between the father and son. The use of that spanish claps (i dont knnow what do they call them) in the Chitra song "mere dil ka tumse.." and then there is this arabian feel to that song...coupled with those claps...super...

and to top it all u had the use of beautiful strings in "mei gaoon tum gaaon..." and then the well-sung, multiple-singers - "aao milke gaien aisa gana..."... superb songs they were....

and then there were those 2 soft numbers -one where Sonu sings - "meri zindagi mei aayen ho..." and another "jaane yeh kya ho gaya..." with shankar himself

Armaan was a masterpeice missed by a lot of music enthusiasts i feel. download its music now to know what u missed. Its like the Andaz apna apna- when relaesed people dint care to see and when it was gone - it became a cult on video.

The Trio's bravo effort...

yeah..but i loved the way SEL used a variety of instruments in a single album - unlike their Jhoom barabar jhooms and Kal ho na ho s.. those were good albums - but not the complete ones!

thanks for the comment
