Today’s first post is Bollywood Geetmala – 1955. This is a continuation of my post, Bollywood Geetmala – 1954 that I posted last week. Like I have mentioned in the very first post in this series, I am no expert and don’t attempt to copy my idol, Ameen Sayani the RJ of the Binaka Geetmala program, regarding these kinds of posts. But I have attempted to get inspired from Ameen Sahab. I write what I like about music and what I don’t. It’s my honest opinion.
Coming to the Bollywood music releases in the year 1955, amazing songs by amazing music composers like C Ramchander, O P Nayyar, etc. (I don’t intend to insult the others by not mentioning their names.) Amazing lyrics by Rajinder Krishan, Jan Nisar Akhtar, etc. Singers – Mohammad Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Geeta Dutt, etc. – have also done a great job in expressing the compositions of the above stalwarts. The second part of this post consists of just some of my favorite songs from Bollywood movies released in 1955. I hope you like them.
