Kalyanji Anandji - Dharmatma [1975] + Apradh [1972] + Anjaan Raahen [1974]




Kalyanji Anandji is a name used by Indian composer duo known for its work on Hindi film soundtracks, particularly action potboilers in the 1970s. The name comes from first names of the Gujarati brothers that formed the duo, Kalyanji Virji Shah and Anandji Virji Shah.
