Naushad: Leader (1963)

According to Stella at Parties, Sarees and Melodies, 'Leader' was something of a transitional work for Naushad, representing a bridge between the classic, folk-based soundtracks of the 50s and earlier, and the modern jazz & beat based sounds of the 60s and beyond. And that it thus divided its audience. It's certainly worth attention though, with interesting going-ons on both sides of the divide.
