It is a well-known fact that the singing career of Suman Kalyanpur in Hindi film industry remained under the shadow of Lata Mangeshkar mainly because many in the Hindi film industry felt that her voice was too close to that of Lata Mangeshkar. When Suman Kalyanpur started her playback singing career in 1954, Lata Mangeshkar was already well established in Hindi films. When the choice came for the music directors between the two, producers and/or distributors would pressurize music directors to engage Lata Mangeshkar as her songs were more saleable than that of the new comers.

What happens when a tragedy queen acts opposite a comic genius ? The tragedy queen begins to act cheerful. Thus we have seen a cheerful Meena Kumari opposite Kishore Kumar in several movies of 1950s.

Even Kishore Kumar’s elder brother acting opposite Meena Kumari could have the same effect on her. “Farishta” (1958) was a Pancholi Production movie. It was directed by Ravindra Dave. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Mubarak, Anita Guha, Sohrab Modi, Mehmood, Nana Palsikar, Sheikh Murad, Mridula etc in it.

There have been three movies titled “Sanskaar”, which were released in 1940, 1952 and 1958. The songs of these three movies are difficult to come by. Conventional wisdom suggests that songs of recent movies should be more easily available but the case is just the reverse here. Songs of “Sanskaar”(1940) and “Sanskaar”(1952) are more easily available than that of “Sanskaar”(1958).🙂

Dr Surjit singh ji put the list on RMIM forum and I copied it from there.
