Anand Bakshi again This time it's a ScreenIndia article by Rajiv Vijaykar. Some the interesting tidbits:

Bakshi wrote the first recorded Hindi film songs of Shailendra Singh, Kumar Sanu (Yeh Desh/1984), Kavita Krishnamurthi, SP Balasubramaniam, Sukhwinder Singh, Talat Aziz and Roopkumar Rathod
Sang four of his seven songs as playback singer for the late R. D. Burman
His collaboration with R. D. Burman was his second most fruitful (in terms of number of films) {sidenote: Anand Bakshi is the lyricist to have collaborated with R. D. Burman for the most films/songs}
never worked with OP Nayyar, Ravi, Madan Mohan and Khaiyyam
Anand Bakshi wrote the lyrics for the first films of Sunny Deol, Jackie Shroff, Kamal Haasan, Kumar Gaurav, Rajnikant, Raakhee, Dimple Kapadia, Amrita Singh, Jayapradha, Manisha Koirala, Tabu (as heroine), Mahima Chowdhury, Namrata Shirodkar and Arjun Rampal. {previous post}

Blind Rage
And on that note another review of Aankhen. Glad someone noticed the Blind Rage angle.

Murder and Melody
As a tribute to the memory of Nasir Hussain who passed away recently, Vijay Anand recreates the making of Teesri Manzil, the one film he directed for the jubilee maker
