Laxmikant Pyarelal

Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar and Pyarela l Ramprasad Sharma, popularly known as Laxmikant-Pyarelal in the music industry, were at the zenith of their profession during the 70s and 80s. Ek Do Teen and Jumma Chumma were the top charters during the late 80s. Laxmikant was born on 3rd November 1937 and Pyarelal on 3rd September 1940. Starting their careers in orchestra, this duo frequently did ghosting for music directors. While Laxmikant got to learn violin, Pyarelal imbibed music skills. The first flick which had this duo composing music was Parasmani in 1963. The songs of the film were a smashing hit. In their career spanning more than 3 decades, they only worked with top notch singers. Possibly this duo had entertained the music lovers with the maximum number of compositions. They have been admirably nominated for 25 times in Filmfare, winning 7 awards. Sureel Kala Kendra was the place in which Laxmikant-Pyarelal first met. The Kendra was an initiative of Mangeshkar family. Since this duo had the financially pitiable background, Lata Mangeshkar introduced them to top notch music composers of that day. They got only insignificant opportunities and hence travelled to Chennai. But they again returned to Mumbai. This duo has assisted most of the music composers. Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar got only less money as pay when the duo was struggling. This pair of mesmerizing voice were sang under the composition of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Kishore Kumar also sang several songs under the amazing direction of this duo. The flick Dosthi was a turning point in this duo’s career.  During the 80s the music of Laxmikant-Pyarelal was not up to the mark as they focused more on numbers. The friendship of this duo was commendable and they maintained it till the death of Laxmikant during 1998. After that, Pyarelal composed music, without sacrificing the name Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
