A lot has been said about the association of S-J with RK. But I feel they were awed, muted and constrained under the great Showman. Whereas when they were given a free rein by other banners it unleashed their creative best. I give below a selective list to prove the point. Compare the songs of RK Films and those of Amiya Chakraborty, Verma and Kishore Sahu – as also down the list, and in singular performances too. Please give your opinion.
