This time we look at the best songs sung onscreen by Mumtaz, Hema Malini, Rekha, Jaya Bhaduri and Zeenat Aman. Enjoy this collection featuring some of their best songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar or Asha Bhosle.
As we look at the next set of leading actresses we discover that the best ‘she’ singing for ‘her’ continues to be Lata Mangeshkar.
While Lata Mangeshkar was the preferred playback singer of every leading lady of Hindi cinema in the 1950s and 1960s, Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt too had some memorable moments of success.
Which singer suited Raj Kapoor’s voice best? And Dilip Kumar’s and Rajesh Khanna’s? Which singing voice suited which actor the best? These are fun questions to ask among lovers of Hindi film music. And the answers take you to another madly nostalgic journey of melody and music
As Lata Mangeshkar enters her 84th year, I pick my ten favourite Lata songs. I of course realize that on another day, or at another time, I might pick 10 completely different songs. And this could go on for many weeks!
