Chor Pe Mor (1990) was a relatively unnoticed comedy directed by Kapil Kapoor. The film tried to bring back jodis like Karan Shah + Neelam and the odd Naseerudin Shah + Sonam pairing. It was a pretty bad film, as far as I remember, though it had moments. The soundtrack was what stood out to me, and surprise, surprise ... it was an R.D. Burman album!
My favorite song by far from the the soundtrack was the Asha Bhosle number "Baaj Uthe Ghungroo" ... it gave Neelam a chance to show of her dancing skills and Asha's trilling was perfect for Neelam's cuteness. I was humming it to myself this afternoon and thought I would share and see if anyone else remembers this song? And hey, did Aamir steal Karan's hat and wear it in Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin?
Apparently this song was based on a Bengali song ... would love to hear about the original if anyone has the deets.
You can view a clip of Baaj Uthe Ghungroo at about 0:51 seconds into the following video (the other songs from the film are featured if you view this video in its entirety):
