Four delightful and very polished songs - absolute gems really. Asha's rare performance after a long time and what a beautiful song. Just listen to the background orchestration in the antara. The prelude and the interlude to "aaj koi nahi apnaa" is just outstanding. His use of bansuri with santoor in the mukhDa and then the lush cello and violins in the antara is pure Salil. The same song in bengali, also sung by Lata is another classic but with completely different arrangement. In fact two very different songs !
