"producer Yusuf Gandhi presents the pop culture of India's Film Music ~ Bollywood" 10 Nov. 2005
By J. Lovins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Silva Screen presents "Bollywood - An Anthology of Songs from popular Indian Cinema", featuring some of the greatest Indian performers and their biggest hits from the '40s right up to the present...inclusive on a 2 compact disc compilation...of course the first Indian sound film came into being March 14, 1931 "Alam Ara", since then we've seen thousands of films come out of India...and thanks to my son-in-law Inam Rehman (India), introduced my family and I to the culture of his native land through the films of from his country...much of what I've seen is exciting and interesting...therefor my review could be on the side of being bias, hope not!

The films are always very colorful, but to me it is the music that really grabs you first...films like:

MAHAL (1949)

SHREE 420 (1955)

ASHA (1957)

HOWRAH BRIDGE (1958)

KOHINOOR (1960)

MERE SAAYA (1966)

MILAN (1967)

ARADHANA (1969)

HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA (1971)

APRADH (1972)

YAADON KI BAARAAI (1973)

KABHI KABHI (1976)

KASAM PAJDA KARNE WALE KI (1984)

HUM (1991)

ROJA (1992)

HUM AAPKE HAIN KOUN (1994)

1942: A LOVE STORY (1994)

AUR PYAR HO GAYA (1997)

THAKSHAK (1999)

KAHO NA PYAR HAI (2000)

ONE 2 KA 4 (2001)

Highlight picks are "Chand Mera Dil", featuring singer Mohammed Rafi, vocals by Hum Kisise Kum Naheen, music by R.D. Burmjan with lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri is considered by most the best popular tune of the '70s is pure captivation..."Ina Mina Dika", featuring vocalist Asha Bhosle with blends of Benny Goodman thrown in for good measure..."Na Tum Jano Na Hum", has Lucky Ali and Ramya enjoying themselves with a performance that completely gets under your skin and you're loving every minute of it...the collection is a blast and will give you an overview of "Bollywood" as they keep churning out film after film with music that will satisfy your palette.

Job well done and compiled by producers Yusuf Gandhi and Amarpal Singh Gaind, Reynold da Silva (executive producer), Lalit Mohan Joshi (liner notes) and Silva Screen Records, who within the realm of the Entertainment Industry has captured the essence of "Bollywood Films" through their music and traditions...must have for all "film-score-buffs" and "World Music" fans... in plain words, this is a keeper!

Don't Phunk with my Heart! 9 Nov. 2005
By G. Moss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you like or want to find out if you like Bollywood music, this cd should definitely be your first purchase. 23 tracks that span the history of this fantastic genre. All of the major stars, including Asha Bhosle, Lata Mangeshkar, A.R. Rahman and Mohamed Rafi.

Highlights include Ina Mina Dika,which sounds like a Bombay version of Cab Calloway, Jhunka Gira Re, which has a great exotic feel, Roop Tera Mastana, perfect for a swinging martini lounge,and Ae Naujawan Hai, which was sampled lock, stock and barrel by Black Eyed Peas for their top seller: Don't Phunk with my Heart. This track will blow you away.

This cd is a must have for those with adventurous ears, and the perfect disc for the person who wants to begin exploring the fantastic pop music of India.

Not as good as I hoped 6 Dec. 2005
By Jay Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really like some of the Bollywood stuff I've heard on my college radio station. I suppose what I've heard represents the best of various CDs. I bought this CD expecting a similar compilation but was disappointed. To my ears, the music on the first CD sounds like Indian versions of American movie music of the 1960's (not my cup of tea). The second CD is more contemporary, but I didn't discover any "gems" among the tracks. That's my opinion.
spans 3 decades 26 April 2013

From Burman to A.R. Rahman and including the most famous Bollywood singer.
This is ingenious music, frivolous and pop but also drawing from the great Indian music tradition.
Arrived really quickly 27 Dec. 2013

I ordered these a few days before Christmas for a last minute gift idea and they were here a day before Christmas. It came in time and saved the holidays.
