This one is going to be one big treat for Kolkata fans of Geeta Dutt…the legend, the enigma, the voice, the persona! She has been one of the most loved singers of yesteryears. Be it ‘Nanhi Kali sone chali’ or ‘Mera naam chin chin chu’ or ‘Waqt ne kiya’, she made each song come alive with her unique rendition. Liineage presents the magic of Geeta Dutt’s songs in the mellifluous voice of Shoma Banerjee. Shoma is a well known singer having been in the industry for the last 15 years. She started with SaReGaMa and went on to do playback for music directors like AR Rehman. Shoma is the perfect voice to recreate the magic of Geeta Dutt. She is being ably supported by Shiv Prasad Mallya, another prolific singer.
So Kolkata residents, get ready to revisit the Black and White era and immerse yourself in the magic of the songs of Geeta Dutt in an evening of unprecedented musical bliss!
We are presenting a series of rare photos of Geeta Dutt ji collected from various online resources. Some of the family photographs were shared by Geeta ji’s son Shri Arun Dutt ji. We are highly grateful to him for this kind gesture.
When one thinks about non-film music creations of the artists from the mainstream film playback singers, the prominent names that come to one’s mind are the great K L Saighal, Talat Mahmood, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar etc. Some popular genres which have been sung by these singers are Ghazals and bhajans (devotional songs). In some instances, a singer began taking more non-film assignments when the film song assignments were reduced (mostly due to non-musical reasons), a notable example is Suman Kalyanpur who sang a good number of soulful songs (Bhaavgeet in Marathi) or Sulochana Kadam turning to Marathi film and non-film songs as Sulochana Chavan or Manna Dey singing a good number of non-film songs in the 70s.

Few people were standing in the corridor . Anxiety,sorrow,helplessness and a little hope was clearly writ on their faces.They were all quiet.No one was talking to anyone.Their body language gave away their agony and restlessness.
