Kasam Paida Karnewale Ki Bappi Lahiri EMI Odeon (India) ECSD 5972, 1984
Kasam Paida Karnewale Ki album cover

As Bollywood moved into the 1980s, disco was taking India by storm so it was a natural progression for its film music to reflect the change in tempo and feel. This rare soundtrack from a hit movie moves away almost completely from traditional classically-influenced Bollywood film music to a contemporary disco sound, heavily based on Michael Jackson songs. As usual, the sound quality is not that hot but the instrumentation and music certainly makes up for it. There's a superb slowburn 80s funk groover in 'Come closer' (loopable open bassline too), uptempo disco, and even a shuffle-feel cut. Good stuff!

Overall Rating: 4
