|Possibly the best soundtrack of all Salil films- a true celebration of folk music with amazing orchestration. From Assam to Kumaoun and then from Nepal to Poland ! "Madhumati" has always been a great favourite of film writers and music reviewers. All the songs are unique and evergreen. "Kancha le kanchi le" is based on a Nepaleese song, my favourite, the haunting melody of "zulmi sang aankh laDi" is based on a Kumaouni folk song and then the rhythmic "chadh gayo paapi bichhuaa", a tribute to his Assam childhood. Pity the Dwijen Mukherjee song "Tan jale man jaltaa rahe" was deleted and it didn't get much press either. Salil used the low-pitch voice of the actor Bhudo Advani as the "Bass" voice in this song ! The lyrics of this song was written by Majrooh.
The surprise song is "Dil tadap tadap ke kah rahaa hai" - based on a very popular Polish folk song " Szla dzieweczka do gajeczka" that originated in the Silesian (South-Western) part of Poland.
