However, from the 1940s, songs based on semi-classical genres such as Thumri, Dadra, Khayal and folk music began to playe a predominant role in Hindi film music. The impact of Begum Akhtar on film music was evident as even ghazals were sung in thumri format in the films. At the same period, Kolkata based music directors were greatly influenced by Rabindra Sangeet while composing Hindi and Bengali film songs.

On the way, heavy rains forces him to take the shelter below the staircase of a building. The rains continue and the boy starts singing. An elderly person comes down from the upper floor of the building and takes the boy to his room. He asks the boy to sing the songs again which he was singing a short while ago. He is impressed by the boy’s singing. The rains stop and he accompanies the boy to drop him at his home. The elderly person requests boy’s mother, a school teacher, to let the boy join his music school. Before he completes his sentence, the mother tells him that she had no money to pay the fees. He assures her that he would not charge any fee for his music lessons. The mother is still not comfortable about her son joining the music school. She tells him that she does not want the boy’s schooling to be affected. The elderly person once again assures her that he would teach the boy only after his school timing is over.
