Cult Clip: Purab Aur Pachhim (1970)

Bollywood meets Swinging London? That will be Purab Aur Pachhim.

I've not seen the movie, but Bossbeat (check out his Bollywood clips for more of the same) put us onto it. The title apparently translates to 'East and West', with the plot revolving around 'a good Indian boy going to swinging London in the 60s'.

Want a clip? Check it out below. No sign of it being available in the UK right now, but I'd guess some specialist sellers will have a copy.



I actually have the soundtrack to this movie on LP. Weird thing is that this song isn't on it.
Still this looks way cooler than what I thought it would look like, from listening to the soundtrack!

This song.....I must have it!!

The film has a good amount of mod scenes in it; the DVD is quite easy to find in South Asian neighborhoods as well as online (with subtitles), as it was a hit film. The song, written by Kalyanji-Anandji, is featured on the CD "Bombay The Hard Way" under the title "Ganges A Go-Go", and on "Sitar Beat Vol. 2" CD as "Someone To Love". The real title is "Love Me", the singer is Usha Uthup, and it was on the very rare 2-LP set soundtrack released on EMI India in 1970, but not on the more common single LP


The entire soundtrack of this film, 2LP version including the above song, can be found here:
