Laxmikant Pyarelal remain a force to reckon with, even today, years after they stopped composing. Last year (2019) alone saw many of their songs being remade, not that i appreciate the remakes, but the Composers popularity still stands strong. They created anthems for the nation and actors that created hysteria, soulful songs that represented all relationships and they remained on the hearts and lips of Everyone. Utsav carried the same appeal and whilst its popularity only grew as time passed, Its class and quality remain constant.
Jaidev Verma (commonly known as Jaidev), a name synonymous with brilliant musical scores, yet the world seems to have forgotten this genius. Unduly underrated and forgotten by his peers and the film world, his music stand bounds apart from the general sound and feel of this film-world. He favoured the Classical music system in his compositions and it came across really creatively. Gaman is definitely a universal soundtrack that will find many admirers, but let us not forget Jaidev and what joy he gave us.
