The Micro View of the Songs of 1948 @ SoY – The Duets – Female Female Duets

When I sort-listed female-female duets for 1948 from HFGK, the number worked out to be reasonably large. However, I could not find digital soft version on the net for almost half of them. Therefore, the songs that I could find YT link can be taken as fairly well-known to those who have good knowledge and interest of vintage era songs. From the perspective of my limited knowledge and interest of the songs of that era, I also found listening to these songs quite interesting.

    1. AKji,
      Thanks for the response and very rightly pointing out the error of re-proofreading the lyrics of mukhda of Mere Dil Ki Dhadkano….
      Female Female duets for 1948 have a very distinctive charm. Probably, when we look back, these set of songs seem to well epitomize the transition in character of Hindi Film Songs composition.
      Mere Dil Ki Dhadkano Mein (I have now corrected the words of mukhda) may be a very typical case, wherein music director may be considered as having no apparently direct linkage with the past tradition of music composition.
