kaisii lag rahii huu.N mai.n (Jhootha Sach)

Another of those classic Pancham-Majrooh songs. Lata, past her prime, puts in the grace nevertheless, that the song asks for. Kishore is in his usual 80s style - heavy, mature, convincing and yet naughty when required. Everything fits in the song. Majrooh puts the 'chhe.D' in
the song in his masterly way. And Pancham goes on to show that even in 1984, you could have as good a light romantic song as it can ever get.

This song also reminds me to share an observation with you. I have found it very common with his songs to have some beautiful antaraas, at times with complex melodic patterns, plus some great work done in the interludes, and yet have a simple, even at times unattractive, mukh.Daa.
That's where, IMHO, most of the beauties of Pancham are hidden - in the antaraas and the body of his songs. That's one reason why unless one listens to him full, one is sure to miss a lot. And also on the other side, the more one listens of him, the more one gets fascinated.

Okay. Here I stop. That's, as I said, just one personal generalised observation. Needless to say, opinions can differ. But still here's a personal advice - Never judge a Pancham song merely by its mukh.Daa.
