Excellent! That's the word to describe Pancham's fabulous music in Inaam Dus Hazaar. If Kishore Kumar's "Jaane bhi do yaar" is the perfect love song on a journey (Kishore sounded as youthful as ever), Asha Bhosle's "jo chham se" is a great club number. The latter has apt lyrics for the suspenseful situation. Anuradha Podwal's rendition of "kabhi yeh haath hain humsafar bhi" makes you wonder why she chose to sing mainly for those crappy Gulshan Kumar films only. She is fantastic in this song. Pancham's use of claps and other effects prove how good he was at experimenting with new sounds. However, the song that has always amazed me is the Kishore-Asha duet "chand koi hoga tumsa kahan." Starting with the long prelude (conjuring visuals of a journey) to the guitar strumming that reminds you of "kaho kahan chale" from Bulundi (1980), this is a one-of-a-kind experience. Kishore Kumar does full two antaras and Asha joins in the third in this over-8-minute song. The guitar plays a significant role: it sets the beat of the mukhda beautifully. All in all, an excellent album from the maestro, who was, by 1987, written off by many in the ruthless industry.
