Some masterpieces of Shankar Jaikishan – Violin orchestrations

SJ were known for excellent use of huge violin orchestra in their music, as much as for piano accordion.
Here are some very interesting links:

And here are two of the great songs, with these preludes and interludes which we can normally hear when we see the full movie:

The first one is from film April Fool. The song is an anticlimax of the emotions that have vibrated when you listen to the song. Rafi’s litliting matches subsequent clarinet.

This one is the gem, in fact equally or more when you see on the big screen, The visuals more than match the music. Raj Kapoor was not known as the greatest showman for nothing….
