In our previous Micro View for the years 1948,1947 and 1946 – the so-called last few years of vintage era – we had had food many of duet songs tat could be classified in terms of the respective male singers. However, even as the overall numbers of duet songs for the year appear to be relatively less, it also appears that it may not make much sense to try to segregate these duet songs w.r.t. a male singer. Therefore, what follows is a collection of duets that has been listed in the alphabetical order of name of the film, and if required sub-grouping songs w.r.t. a male singer.
