Singer Talat Mahmood’s Death Anniversary


Padma Bhushan Singer Talat Mahmood expired on this day in 1998. If he had not passed on, he would have been 94 today. He is one of the greatest Bollywood, light and semi-classical singers of all times. After Rafi Sahab, he is my favorite singer. Talat Mahmood has also acted in some movies. Since his acting career did not take off, he concentrated on singing only. He had sung around 800 songs in his lifetime, over 4 decades spanning the years 1940s to 1980s.

Seene me sulagtein hain armaan, aakhon mein udasi chhayee hai… Taraana (1951)
Dil-e-nadaan tujhe hua kya hai… Mirza Ghalib (1954)
Jayen to jayen kahan… Taxi Driver (1954)
Tasveer banata hoon… Baradari (1955)
Humse aaya na gaya… Dekh Kabira Roya (1957)
Jalte hain jiske liye… Sujata (1959)
Aha rim jhim ke ye pyare pyare geet liye… Usne Kaha Tha (1960)
Itna na mujhse tu pyar badha… Chhaya (1961)
Aansoo samajh ke kyon mujhe… Chhaya (1961)
