About Hemant Kumar.. our HEMANT DA..
Though he left the mortal world yet he remains alive to all his admirers through his golden voice,songs and immortal meloies.. we miss you a lot hemant da. there could be never another you ..., you continue to live in your music in our hearts...Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay (Bangla: হেমন্ত কুমার মুখোপাধ্যায় Hemonto Kumar Mukhopaddhae) also known as Hemanta Mukherjee (June 16, 1920 September 26, 1989) was an Indian singer, composer and producer. He sang in Hindi films under the name Hemant Kumar.
Hemanta was born in the city of Varanasi, India. His family hailed from a village named Baharu in West Bengal.
In the late 1950s, Hemanta ventured into movie production under his own banner Hemanta-Bela productions. The first movie under this banner was a Bengali film directed by Mrinal Sen, titled Neel Akasher Neechey(1959). The story of this film was based on the travails of a Chinese street hawker in Calcutta in the backdrop of India's freedom struggle. The movie went onto win the President's Gold Medal the highest honour for a movie from Government of India. In the next decade, Hemanta's production company was renamed Geetanjali productions and it produced several Hindi movies such as Bees Saal Baad, Kohraa, Biwi Aur Makaan, Faraar, Rahgir and Khamoshi all of which had music by Hemanta. Almost all of these, except Bees Saal Baad and Khamoshi, weren't major commercial successes.
In September 1989, he travelled to Dhaka, Bangladesh to receive the Michael Madhusudan Award. He performed a concert in Dhaka as well. Immediately after returning from this trip, he suffered a major cardiac arrest on September 26 and breathed his last at 11:15 pm in a nursing home in South Calcutta. Interestingly, even 15 years after his death, Gramophone Company of India releases at least one album by him every year, repackaging his older songs, because of the commercial viability of his songs. His legacy still lives on through the numerous songs he has recorded, music he has composed and through many male singers in Bengal and the rest of India who continue to imitate his singing style.

English filmography as a composer
1972: Siddhartha

nayi manzil nayi raahen naya hai maharbaan apana

na jaane jaake thaharega kahaan yah kaarvaan apana

na chamakegi jahaan bijali na aayega jahaan tuufaan

banaaenge usi daali pe jaake aashiyaan apana

bharosa hai muqaddar par tumhaara bhi sahaara hai

kahin dushman na ban jaaye yah zaalim aasmaan apana

dikhaaenge hamein yah chaand taare raah manzil ki

banate ho agar dushman to ho saara jahaan apana
