Today is Filmmaker Bimal Roy’s death anniversary. Bimal Roy’s notable works were from the realistic and socialistic genre like Do Bheegha Zameen (1953), Parineeta (1953), Sujata (1959), etc. His Madhumati (1958) won 9 Filmfare Awards, a record held for 37 years.

Bollywood and Filmmaker Bimal Roy’s Death Anniversary

Bimal Roy mostly collaborated with either Salil Chowdhury or S D Burman for the songs featuring in his movies. Thus, his films had quite beautiful, memorable songs. Some of my favorite Bollywood songs from his 1950s movies are:

Chali Radhe chali… Parineeta (1953)

Aajare pardesi… Madhumati (1958)

Dil tadap tadapke keh raha hai… Madhumati (1958)

Suhana safar aur yeh mausam hasin… Madhumati (1958)

Zulmi sang ankh ladi… Madhumati (1958)

Jalte hain jiske liye… Sujata (1959)
