    Rai Chand Boral, popularly known as RC Boral. RC Boral was born in 1903 at Calcutta, his father; Lal Chand Boral was a classical musician (expert of Dhrupad). He had three sons, and Rai Chand was the youngest. Music was in his blood but still never would let go an opportunity to learn from stalwarts of renowned Gharana’s.

    RC Boral joined the Indian Broadcasting Company in the year of its inception, 1927. In 1931, he shifted to the New Theatres in the silent era for supporting the stage with live music. It was in 1935, where he introduced playback singing for the first time in the Hindi feature film Dhoop Chhaon (1935). The song- Main Khush Hona Chahun, had an all women chorus led by Parul Ghosh with Suprova Sarkar and Harimati picturised in a dance sequence. R.C. Boral came to Bombay in 1953. After coming to Bombay, he composed music for Dard-e-Dil (1953) with Lata’s songs. RC Boral went on to compose music for more than 150 films including Hindi and Bengali films. Some of his films are Mohabbat Ke Aansoo (1932), Zinda Laash (1932), Subah Ka Sitaara, Pooran Bhagat (1933), Rajrani Meera (1933), Chandidas (1934), Dakoo Mansoor (1934), Rooplekha (1934), After the Earthquake (1935), Karwan-e-Hayaat (1935), Dhoop Chhaon (1935), Manzil (1936), Millionaire (1936), Maya (1936), Anath Aashram (1937), Vidyapati (1937), President (1937), Abhagin (1938), Street Singer (1938), Jawani Ki Reet (1939), Sapera (1939), Haar Jeet (1940), Lagan (1941), Sugand (1942), Waapas (1943), Humrahi (1945), Wasiatnaama (1945), Anjangarh (1948), Pahela Admi (1950), Dard-e-Dil (1953), Shree Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1953), Swami Vivekanand (1955), Amar Saigal (1955).
