Lata Mangeshkar with Lesser Known Male Playback Singers

I can't believe It's been a year! It was a Sunday last year when the sad news of the demise of Lata Mangeshkar hit me. Though she was already hospitalized for a period, it was still a great shock. Of course she's alive in our minds with her immortal songs. I was planning yearly review …

(Part – 2) The Bicycle Saga

I started the series on Bicycle songs in November last year and presented the first part. It was based on the songs picturised on a group of bicycles. I must confess that it wasn't an easy task at all. As I was looking for songs picturised on bicycles for the full length of a song, …

The ‘Fusion Songs’

A few years back, when I had just begun blogging, I had posted a list of songs having 'Two Different Moods in a Single Song'.

Continuing the yearly review of Lata Mangeshkar's Hindi film songs, I'm presenting today my favourites from the year 1955. Here I want to clarify that the year mentioned corresponds to the year of getting censor board certification. The majority of the books enlist the films as per the year of censor board certification.

One Lady Sings, The Other Dances

Hindi films are full of song and dance. Many people wonder why Hindi films or Indian films in general have songs? But for us it's a routine, almost an essential part! Isn't it? At the drop of hat, the hero and heroine break into a song. It's not mandatory to have a situation. We have …

Afsana Likh Rahi Hoon – Remembering Umadevi

I wanted to dedicate a post to Umadevi for a long time. But I am not so organized when it comes to the tribute posts. All of you must have noticed I always regret missing the birthday centenary years of the stalwarts of HFM. That's because I just do the post that comes to my …
