Sonik Omi: Umar Qaid (1974)

Unsurprisingly, it's the cabaret number that highlights this otherwise not very interesting score from Sonik Omi. 'Aag Men Jale Jawani' is full of bounce and rich in detail, falling somewhere between the jazzy rock'n'roll of 60s' Shankar Jaikishan, and RD Burman's later sonic adventurousness. An excellent track.None of the other songs are very memorable, and the arrangements fail to excite me.
