While posting songs from the golden era of Bollywood movies, I have tended to concentrate more on the songs of 1950s and 1960s, even though I grew up with songs of 1970s.

O P Nayyar, who ruled the roost in Hindi movie music scene in 1950s and 1960s had lost much of his ground by the end of 1960s. But I find that the music that he created in his last few movies was perhaps as outstanding as any music that he created in his earlier more heralded music. It is another matter that the music of these movies were not lapped up as much as they should have been for various reasons.
