His Music

Over a career span of 25 years (1950 - 1975), Madan Mohan composed music for 95 released Hindi films and 12 shelved films. These 100 plus films featured almost 700 songs, many of which are remembered to this day while some have been lost over the years. He was extremely versatile, but he is best remembered for his ghazals, pathos-laden songs and classical based songs due to their immense popularity. His songs with Lata Mangeshkar in particular have become a part of Indian Film Music history.
