With two great years in succession, Geetaji became the undisputed number one singer in
the nation. She was virtually unchallenged at this juncture in her career. The hitherto established singers like Rajkumari and
Shamshad Begum were relegated to lower spots. There was only one spot at the top and that belonged to Geetaji. At least for now!
Geetaji was busy like a bee during 1949. She sang many scores of songs during that year in at least 25 different movies. Again, she performed for several big name music directors and some new ones. But irrespective of who she was performing for, whether well known or hardly known, she sang every song with the same zeal and enthusiasm that were very characteristics of her success.
Some of the music directors she worked in 1949 include Anil Biswas, Husnlal & Bhagatram, C. Ramchandra, Naushad, Vinod, Ghulam Mohammed, Gyan Dutt, Hansraj Behl, Krishna Dayal, Bulo C. Rani, and S.D. Burman.
Geetaji sang for Husnlal & Bhagatram in six movies in 1949. These were “Amar Kahani” (two solos), “Bansuriya” (two solos), “Hamari Manzil” (four solos, a duet, and a triplet), “Naach” (a triplet), “Rakhi” (two solos) and “Sawan Bhadon” (two solos).
C. Ramchandra gave music to three movies in 1949 in which Geetaji sang. These were “Roshni”, “Sanwariya”, and “Sipahiya”. In all these movies Geetaji sang a duet.
Hansraj Bhel provided music for six movies in 1949 in which Geetaji sang. These were “Chakori” (four solos), “Kaneez” (two solos), “Karwat” (two solos and two duets), “Raat Ki Rani” (a solo and a duet), and “Zevraat” (three solos).
