Salil Chowdhury or Salilda as he was known in the Indian Film industry…mind the term Indian here and not Bollywood—would have been about 94 years old (on 19th November) if he had been there. He was an active music composer for Malayam, Bengali and Hindi movies. That is the reason for me using the term “Indian Film Industry”. Born in West Bengal he spent his childhood in the Tea Gardens of Assam. He came to Calcutta (Kolkata) for his graduate studies and that is when he joined IPTA. His musical career had a take off from here when he wrote and set songs to tune for IPTA. His film debut came in the Bengali film of 1949 “Paribortan” and his Hindi debut was Bimal Roy’s “Do Bigha Zamin” in 1952. His Malayalam debut was “Chemeen” in 1964. He did about 75 Hindi. 40 Bengali and 27 Malayalam movies. We can find his music in a few Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati, Oriya and Assamese films too.
