My thoughts on some of my favorites...

I really like Shankar Jaikishan's lovely theme for Bombay Talkie. Its so contemporary it feels like it could have been written yesterday and it has such a soothing, lilting groove that it just grows on you with every listen. Kalyanji's Anadji's music for Zanjeer, on the other hand, has a classic seventies feel to it. I love the melody and the arrangement that accompanies the atmospheric video. R.D. Burman's haunting title music for Caravan has been a favorite of mine for years. It features a great wordless vocal by Usha Iyer as Asha Parekh helplessly drives a runaway car down a mountain. Yikes!

    Thank you ever so much!


  2. Thanks, Suzanne. I truly appreciate the kind words.

    I really don't get much feedback. So, its encouraging to know that my DVDs are being enjoyed and my efforts are appreciated. As long as I get nice comments like yours, I'll continue making new ones. :D

  3. Thanks. Looking forward to this (I'm grabbing the torrent).

  4. Just finished downloading - can't wait to watch it!

  5. Hope u like. A lot of the title music in this collection didn't appear on the OST album of the movie.

  6. This is amazing! Everything is so beautifully restored. I have stacks of filmi dvd's and vcd's and have dreamed of a comp like this for ages. Thanks for all these labors of love. Shabash!

  7. You're welcome.

    Thanks for the feedback and kind words. Enjoy! :)

  8. HOW DID I MISS THIS??!!!! Hope it is still being seeded!!!! My stupid job is really cutting into my blog browsing. Arghh.

    *runs off to bwt*

  9. Glad you finally found this post. I was beginning to think u weren't interested. ;-)

    Bwt still has plenty of seeds. Hope u like the DVD. :)

  10. thanks for this great blog !! i would love to see your compilation DVD's.

    it seems that the link to part 21 is dead.

    is there a way to download the DVD's somewhere else ? Bwt is a little messed up i think. i can't donate and emailing them didn't work either.


  11. Thanks for the feedback.

    Yep, link for 21 was broken. Its OK now. :)

    Try again.

  12. yeah, now it's working. even on my mac.
    watching it now. it's an amazing piece of work you did. thanks !!

    what is the secret about to register on Bwt ?

  13. Yw, glad u like. It took me a while to make, but I think it turned out rather good.

    About Bwt...get my contact email from my profile and send me a note.

  14. This was a really great idea for a DVD. I especially love the menu showing all the clips in action.

  15. Hello!

    I'm trying to download this DVD through MediaFire. But Bollywood's Best Movie Titles.part10.rar is missing on the MediaFire page. Is there something wrong? Or I should rename all the numbering of the rar files?

    And it's out of the topic, but I can't comment on the original post so I have to put it here. I was also trying to download Helen of Bollywood 3, but some of the rar files are invalid and cannot be recovered. I tried downloading everything from MediaFire again but it still doesn't work. What can I do?

    Thank you very much.


  16. Hello Royce,

    Download all the files for Bollywood's Best Movie Titles including the par files. Use QuickPar and it will repair and replace the missing file. If you have more than one missing and the QuickPar is unable to replace then you'll have to go to Bwtorrents @ and use the torrent. I just looked and I see there are no seeders. However, if you post a comment and ask for someone to please seed the torrent, you should get help from those who have downloaded the DVD before. As for Helen of Bollywood 3, I'm afraid that Mediafire has begun to delete those files due to inactivity. So, you'll have to go again to Bwtorrents @ and ask for help. Good luck :)

  17. Thank you for your quick reply. :-)

    I've downloaded everything and ran through MacPar, but since there's no part10.rar, though the rest of the files are fine, I can't process further. Anyway, I will try Torrent again later. Thank you very much! :>

  18. I don't know why MacPar failed, but I put more than enough par files so QuickPar will work if only 1 file is missing. So, if you can try it on a PC with QuickPar it should replace the missing file. Hope u someday get the DVD and sorry for the trouble you've run into.
