Appreciation of Hemanta Mukherjee
( Celebrated Film Maker
( Noted Lyricist & Music Composer
Appreciation of Hemanta Mukherjee : Two of the best ever adulations showered upon Hemanta came from Salil Chowdhury and Lata Mangeshkar. Salil Chowdhury - dubbed as one of the best and the most versatile multilingual music composers of all time was often quoted as saying that if God were to sing, He would have sung the way Hemanta Da used to sing.
Lata Mangeshkar, the melody queen and the nightingale of India commented that while listening to Hemanta Da, it would seem to her as if a saint were singing inside a Temple. She further commented that Hemanta Da was not only a fabulous singer, but also a great composer of unsurpassable talents and that his music was blended with the music of Rabindra Sangeet, Bengali Folk songs, the regional music elements of Assam and Bengal and Classical and Devotional Songs.
Singers of the stature of Hemanta Mukherjee are not born so often. During his over 56 years of music career, he mesmerized the listeners with his magical voice. Abhijit Bandyopadhyay - the noted lyricist and music composer of many memorable Bangla Songs - was quoted as saying that so many great singers have come. But Hemanta Mukherje continues and will continue to remain as the Emperoror of Bengali Music.
Bengali Film Director Aravinda Mukherjee was quoted as saying that though the music composition of Hemanta Mukherjee was simple, but it was replete with melody and magical touch stone. He further said, There was a great interconnection and understanding between Hemanta Mukherjee and the celebrated Bengali lyricist Gauri Prasanna Mazumdar. Just after Gaurida has completed writing the lyrics, Hemantada would right away compose the music, playing the Harmonium. According to him, Hemanta Mukherjee used to put priority to the melody. If there is no melody, the song will lose its luster.
