Filmmaker Basu Chatterjee expired at 93, yesterday. He was one of the stalwarts of the middle-of-the-road cinema along with Basu Bhattacharya and Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Basu Chatterjee had a penchant for light-hearted middle-class stories often set in urban situations, focusing on love and marriage and the relationships associated with them. The exceptions were Ek Ruka Hua Faisla (1986) and Kamla Ki Maut (1989), dealing with moral and social issues.

Some of my favorite songs from his famous movies are:

Yeh jeevan hai… Piya Ka Ghar (1972)

Tu jo mere sur mein sur milale sang ga le… Chitchor (1976)

Koi rokona deewane ko… Priyatama (1977)

Thoda hai thode ki zarurat hai zindagi phir bhi yahan khoobsoorat hai… Khatta Meetha (1978)

Uthe sabke kadam dekho… Baton Baton Mein (1979)

Charu Chandra ki chanchal chituvan… Man Pasand (1980)

Suhani sham aayi hai kisike aanese… Shaukeen (1982)

Tu jahan bhi chalega chaloongi… Chameli Ki Shaadi (1986)
