Substantive share of Lata Mangeshkar+ songs in the Female Female duets category for the year 1949 also can be taken as one more indicator of her emergence as THE playback singer. Of course, she does share space with all other major (so-called) competing players in this category, which seems to have weighed in her favor.
So let us listen to the female female duets of singers other than Lata Mangeshkar.
