Re: Re: Timeless Pancham
Well... Jab se tumko dekhaa, the "L-O-V-E" song from Kaalia is an absolute work of genius to my mind... what a
super chorus, what lovely creation of atmosphere... even without seeing the film I could have guessed
this was shot in some scenic valley, the recording of that song had such depth created due to a slight
far-away voice effect and the chorus...
If the loRD felt he had not done enough. God knows how good it would have been if he had been satisfied with it :)
... And who can forget "Tum saath ho jab apne" !! What a super melody... all through, the film was
underscored by some of the finest background music too...
In fact, I am particularly excited about Euphony bringing out a DVD with snippets like Pran's recollection
of his daughter in Kaalia...
... along with other wonderful moments given to Cinema by the loRD like "I'm falling in love with a stranger"
or "Viru and Basanti leaving Ramgarh" in Sholay at the end when they embrace in the train...
... or the police chase in Shaan ( "Aur isee ke saath aaj ke samachar samaapt hue" ;)) ) or Shakal's intro in
Shaan, Sholay's title and so many beautiful melodies that we would otherwise scratch around on Youtube to
collect for ourselves...
One may not realise it... but this is such a magnificent effort by true lovers of music, totally immersed in
Pancham !!! Hats off to Euphony, they are such a class group of people...
There's so much more actually, that such DVDs can keep rolling out... how many MD's gave a different
interlude between each stanza of most songs they composed ? Every song of Pancham's is so full... so
complete with experimentation, ups, downs and returns to the main note... its just so, so amazing to think
of... who can ever be compared to HIM ?
Take Namkeen's melody at the end... take Masoom's continuous "undercurrent" of guilt... so beautifully
composed... this man, this fair magician literally shaped sounds... literally melted your very soul and
brought it into your eyes.... like no other ever did or ever will do...
