The good, the bad and the ugh! - The Times of India
Palash Sen -
"What really sucks are the remixes like Kaliyon ka chaman. R D Burman was the original music genius. It pains to see what they have done to his original tunes. Have you heard the Yeh vaada raha remix? Everyone now makes money on RD, so he�s looking after a lot of households and is also the breadwinner of the year."

rediff.com, Movies: Classics Revisited: Why Padosan is perennially popular
* R D Burman's first break had come courtesy Mehmood in Chhote Nawab (1961). The two friends had done Bhoot Bangla and reached their collaborative apogee in Padosan.
* In Padosan, RD gave Lata two lovely solos, the peppy Bhai battoor and the dulcet Sharam aati hai while Asha Bhosle had to share her only song, Main chali main chali with Lata.
* RD cleverly adapts the 1939 Sant Tulsidas hit song Ban chale Ram Raghurai for Dekhi teri chaturai.
