Arunkumar Deshmukh on the arrival of the golden age of Hindi Film Music

in Atul's blog (as usual short, comprehensive seems generally correct to me):
"The fifth decade gave us musical films like, Khazanchi, Basant, Khandan, Ratan, Shehnai, Anmol Ghadi, Andaz, Badi Behan, Ek thi ladki, Patanga, Barsat, Mahal etc etc. Almost every alternate film was musical.
The Golden Era had arrived.
Filmistan’s popular film Shehnai-47 also played an important role in the history of HFM.
C.Ramchandra came into his own with this film. As newer experiments were made in HFM, the next big contribution ,after Ghulam Hyder(Khazanchi),came from C.Ramchandra. "
