Paisa Yeh Paisa - from "Karz"

Lyrics & Chords

A great, foot-tapping, energetic song from “Karz”. This is brilliantly rendered by Kishore Kumar to the powerful music of Laxmikant Pyarelal. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi. The movie came from Subhash Ghai banner.

The movie’s concept was based on reincarnation and it became a big hit, with Rishi Kapoor and Tina Munim playing the main roles. Other great songs included in the movie were Dard-e-Dil (also rendered by me and can be found on my page, should you decide to listen), “Om Shanti OM”, “Main Solah Baras Ki, Tu Satraan Baras Ka”, and the very famous “Ek Hasina Thi”.

Please listen to my attempt on this high pitched, and energetic rendition. Will be awaiting feedback with baited breath.

A big U-turn from your previous upload! You sounded good as always! Energy dept. mein thoda aur paisa daalna tha….:-) It needed to be little more hard-hitting. Nonetheless, a daring attempt!

Shailu bhai ….Paisa ho to musibat ….na ho to bhi musibat……i liked your rendition….its very hard to match kishoreda’s energy like what you have stated….I consider this as an excellent attempt ….liked your open throated singing a lot !! Honestly I havent yet heard a cover of this song….so kudos for trying something different from the norm.

What I loved in this rendition is the right attitude you adopted. It’s a challenge for a singer who otherwise prefers soft singing….and you have made a decent attempt in your voice and style. Great going :)
