Pancham arrives!
18 January 2018 | by dwaipayanguptaSee all my reviews

This movie is all about RD! Can't believe someone can compose gem of a song as "Ghar Aja Ghir Ayi" in hsi debut! Similarly, "Matwali Ankhonwale" sounds so fresh even today and carries a typical RD signature all over it. Credit should be given to Rafi for the amazing voice modulation at the beginning of the song. I like the other two songs as well - "Aaj hua mera dil matwara" and "Aam Chhum Taam chhum".
