Composer O P Nayyar’s Death Anniversary


It’s Composer O P Nayyar’s death anniversary, today. He expired at the age of 81, in 2007. Nayyar Sahab had undergone music training earlier on in his life. His career began with Kaneez (1949), for which he had composed the background music. Aasmaan (1952) was his first attempt at music composition. Chham Chhama Chham (1952) and Baaz (9153) came next. Guru Dutt assigned him for Aar Paar (1954), Mr. and Mrs. 55 (1955) and CID (1956). All India Radio had banned most of Nayyar’s compositions in the 1950s and the 1960s because they considered them too trendy.
