- Professor Pyarelal
Kalyanji Anandji is a name brothers Kalyanji Virji Shah and Anandji Virji Shah used when composing music for Bollywood films. Since 1950s they together did music to over 250 movies and at the same time had some other productions too. Together with other famous Bollywood composers Laxmikant Pyarelal and R.D. Burman, Kalyanji Anandji are the best known Bollywood composers of all times.
The movie Professor Pyarelal seems to be released in 1981 although this soundtrack is from 1980. It’s a basic story of crime lords, police detectives and one mans struggle between those. The music itself is mostly quite basic, slightly funky Bollywood stuff with vocals sung by the greats Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi and Kishore Kumar. The best track is the almost instrumental title theme “Professor Pyarelal”, a funky uptempo Bollywood jam with breaks in the middle. The horn riff is quite catchy too.
