A glimpse into the old world

Partial list of the legends of yesteryears and some blockbusters of that period. Do not feel disheartened if your favourite singer or movie is not in the list. This is not the complete list. These are old screenshots. My vintage songs collection has multiplied manifold since then. The list is first arranged decade-wise and then in alphabetic order. Scroll each column vertically to get the right glimpse.

You may refer to this list if you want me to post specific songs. Feel free to point out the errors in the list if you find any. Thanks.

    Movie: Sangeet Samrat Tansen (missing in list?).

    Saw this as a kid on tv; it had Mukesh’s famous “jhoomti chali hawa”. I’m unable to find the diya jalao song (not sure of exact lyrics, but the song that lights up lamps… the singer was probably Rafi). I’m pretty sure that this is different from Saigal’s diya jalao which I could find easily.

    I have taken note of the movie. Tansen (1943) is, however, there.

    I think Krishna Chandra Dey probably had sung some numbers in Hindi films during the 30s – 50s. Could you please confirm and if available, post some of them. Thanks,

    This is only a list of movies, posted here for the benefit of my readers. The purpose is to allow you to pick a movie of your choice and make a request to post its songs in one of my future posts.
