My father's departure in Dec 2020 for Covid, took a lot away from within me. I developed a certain kind of detachment from watching Cinema. It stopped exciting me ever since & Have rarely seen Cinema & OTT stuff in last 2 yrs & even gave long break to our Podcast @ChaalHaal #MOMD
@ChaalHaal I did see 5-6 much awaited & recc'ed films like TheDisciple, MinnalMurali & Sherni & some segments from Anthology films of @ghaywan @Vasan_Bala, @AratiRaval & @ashutoshc06, still wasn't as excited abt new stuff as ever. But VasanB & @varungrover's new work is reviving interest
Finally am excited about a film after long as dear @Vasan_Bala's Monica O My Darling has arrived last night on @netflix. Tonight started watching & m surprised by a Kick-Ass opening sequence that it delivers. But stopped on the Titles when his name popped up, just for this thread

20 July 1972 saw the untimely demise of singer-extraordinaire #GeetaDutt at the young age of 41. But her tragically short life hasn't made the slightest dent in her lasting legacy as one of our greatest & most versatile artistes. Let us revisit 12 of her best songs!

#GeetaDutt made her playback debut under Hanuman Prasad in 1946, but it was #SDBurman whose 'Mera Sundar Sapna Beet Gaya' from Do Bhai (1947) made her an overnight sensation. Notice how her voice ebbs & rises to fit the melancholy & angst of the song. She was barely 17 here!

In 1951, #GeetaDutt sang 'Tadbeer Se Bigdi Hui', a breezy guitar-led number for #SDBurman in #GuruDutt's directorial debut #Baazi. Geeta's voice, flitting between mischief & flirtation, still sounds unbelievably fresh!

Even @VikramMotwane's #Lootera prominently features it!
