rare finds

Despite the rains and gloomy weather that dominated yesterday, I managed to add a little bright spot thanks to a trip (at long last) to Sona Imports. My cachet included The Legend of Bhagat Singh, Zor, and (the moment the bulb glowed) a sealed sole copy of Jhoothi Shaan, a rare RD Burman release from Sigma Music for a film starring Mithun Chakraborty, Poonam Dhillon and Shabana Azmi ("an emotional story revolving around royalty and reality" as one cable channel schedule puts it). Yep. Made my day all right. Incidentally, the film also goes by the name of Parbat Mahal (doesn't help matters much, does it?). Raanii Kii Nikalii Sawaarii, one of the songs on the album, had its share of fame, when it became the first song that Pancham recorded when he returned from his bypass operation.
