Laxmikant-Pyarelal [Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (1937-98) and Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma(b. 1940)

Music composers at the top of their profession in the 70s and 80s. Composed the two biggest hit songs of the late 80s, Ek do teen (from Tezaab) and the Bachchan number Jumma chumma (from Hum). Both musicians started as performers in orchestras, becoming arrangers for Hindi film music, which often included ghosting for composers. Laxmikant learnt the violin with Husnlal while Pyarelal learnt music from the Goan music teacher, Anthony Gonsalves (a memory celebrated in his score for Amar Akbar Anthony). Pyarelal assisted Bulo C. Rani at Ranjit; both assisted Naushad, C. Ramchandra and Kalyanji- Anandji. Their first film as music directors, Parasmani, yielded a major hit, Hansta hua nurani chehra. Broke through with Milan and the Lata Mangeshkar/Mukesh? hit, Sawan ka mahina. Real success came in the 70s with their Rajesh Khanna films (Dushman, Hathi Mere Saathi, Do Raaste) and with Raj Kapoor’s Bobby. Since then they have worked on many Manmohan Desai films (Dharam Veer, Naseeb), Shekhar Kapur’s Mr India and the film that breathed new life into their career, Tezaab, followed by Hum. They tend to ascribe their success to their integration of classical Indian and folk rhythms with electronic synthesisers. The lyrics of their songs are frequently written by Anand Bakshi.
