As circumstanced, Bappi Lahiri, being purturbed and hopeless in Mumbai decided to return to Kolkata, just when he chanced to compose music for "Zakhmee' . It was literally the "Acid Test" for Bappi. He poured his emotions wholeheartedly for his compositions. The film was super hit and so was Bappi. Each song proved Bappi's novelty. Bappi's signature number was , of course, "Zakhmi Dilo ka badla chukane aye hain diwane-diwane".The music became the balm for his "Zakhmi dil". Homecoming cancelled.
