Renowned music maverick RD Burman who was popularly known as Pancham Da won millions of hearts owing to his unique style of composing music. It won’t be wrong to call him one of the most talented and influential music composers Bollywood had ever seen. Born in June 27, 1939, RD Burman composed music for as many as 331 films and the evergreen songs from the same continue to be the all-time favourites of music lovers across the country even now. 

In his career spanning around 33 years, Pancham Da gave some of the best music scores in Hindi cinema and we get proof for the same in movies like Aaradhna, Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Jewel Thief, Pyar Ka Mausam, Baharon Ke Sapne, Jewel Thief, and many others. The musical genius, unfortunately, left for his heavenly abode on January 4, 1994. Today, on his 27th death anniversary, we pay our heartfelt tribute to him and look back at the ten most evergreen songs composed by him back in the day.

Anonymous : RDB did maximum experiments with the music composition in his songs. Therefore, I sometimes find difficult whether I should rate RD Burman or Shanker-Jaikishen as no. 1 music director of the hindi film industry till date.

Anonymous : Most unfortunate thing is the judges of the awards council did not have the mind to calculate the talent of Panchamda. He composed more classical music than any other. Hats off, Pancham.
