Shankar Jaikishan: Anari (1959/1979)

Vintage Shankar Jaikishan, 'Anari' [review] [2] is delightful as can be. Lovely melodies, chirpy choruses, lively accordions, romantic strings, bicycle bells, Lata Mangeshkar... hard to resist really. I believe 'Nineteen Fifty Six' is the famous one, and it's indeed wonderful. But so is 'Ban Ke Panchhi'. And 'Tera Jana'. And at the moment I can't think of anything sweeter than 'Dil Ki Nazar Se.
