Today is the birth anniversary of Chitragupta, a very talented but lesser known music composer of Hindi cinema. Active for more than four decades in the film line, he composed music for about 150 films. Somehow fame eluded him and lady luck did not smile as much on him as did on other music directors, as far as popularity is concerned . Maybe his talent did not get utilized to the full . However the melodies he composed for the films like Bhabhi, Oonche Log, Zabak, Kali Topi Lal Rumaal , and Insaaf Ki Manzil did get due recognition.The noted films for which he composed music are- Bhakt Puraan, Naag Panchami ,Naya Raasta, Alibaba Aur Chaalis Chor, Kismat ,Insaaf ,Bhaabi ,Pawanputra Hanuman,Chaalbaaz ,Kangan,Kaali Topi Laal Rumaal ,Kal Hamaara Hain ,Guest House ,Barkha ,Gambler,Patang ,Zabak ,Suhaag Sindoor ,Main Chup Rahoongi ,Main Shaadi Karne Chala ,Opera House ,Ganga Ki Lahren ,Samson ,Main Bhi Ladki Hoon ,Akaash Deep ,Oonche Log ,Mahabharat and Aulaad .
His two sons Anand and Milind are also music composers.
Our humble tributes !
