Music was the central theme of the film बसंत बहार .The Chitradurg Estate Singer's son Malaiyya,when sings,he always twists the notes of every raga composition and distorts its correct form.His father sings for him to teach proper presentation of Aalap in रागमालकौंस .The aalap in the film is sung by पंडित भीमसेन जोशी with the traditional lyrics:"पग लागन दे महाराज के ...."for राज गायक on the screen.मलैय्या fails to adopt it,but Estate Astrologer's son Gopal(played by भारत भूषण ) repeats the Aalap lesson correctly as it should be and gets appreciation for it .मन्ना डे gave playback for Bharat Bhushan in the film.It is a very rare piece of melody composed by Music Directors: शंकर -जयकिशन .
