Burman for "Mili","Abhiman","Chaitali", R. D. Burman for "Gol-Mal","Naram Garam","Namak Haram", Madan Mohan for "Bawarchi", Salil Chowdhury for "Anand". Only the track-record speaks, how apt his selection was.

    Hrishikesh Mukherjee was ambi-dextrous in making deep-delved serious issues as well as light-spirited comedies. We have "Satyakam","Anand""Namak Haram""Anupama""Abhiman" on one hand, and "Gol Maal","Bawarchi","Naram Garam", "Chupke Chupke"," Rang Birangi" on the the other. Witth equal skill he could generate gravity and glee. He knew the art of story-telling. For serious films he was not a tearjerker, and for comedy he was not a titilater. Both the diverse streams came up sponteneously.
