Raichand Boral : The father of Indian Cinema Music

Rai Chand Boral who is commonly known as R. C. Boral (1903 - 1981) was a famous composer and is referred to by connoisseurs as the father of Indian Film music.



Life and career
R.C. Boral was born as Rai Chand Boral in Calcutta in 1903. His father Lal Chand Boral was a classical musician (expert of Dhruphad). He had three sons, and Rai Chand was the youngest. Musicians from Rampur and Gwalior were invited for lessons. These include Ustad Mushtaq Hussain Khan, Masit Khan (tabla player), and Ustad Hafeez Ali Khan (sarod player). Rai Chand learnt "Sath Sangat" on the tabla and attended music conferences in Lucknow, Allahabad, and Banares. Rai Chand joined the Indian Broadcasting Copmany in the year of its inception which was 1927. In 1931, he shifted to the New Theatres Ltd. in the silent era for supporting the stage with live music. He dissolved the Ghazal style of singing from Northern India into the 19th Century Bengali tunes with string instrument medium. In 1935, he introduced playback singing forthe 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 a dance sequence. He came to Bombay in 1950s. After coming to Bombay, in 1953, he composed music for Dard-e-Dil (1953) with Lata's songs. Music for some basic records were composed by him. Anjangarh (1948) was his last famous film with New Theatres. He is correctly complemented by late Anil Biswas as the Father of Indian Cinema Music. He had directed music of 150 films including Hindi and Bengali films. He received the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 1978 at the age of 75. He passed away in 1981 at the age of 78.



His famous films were Puran Bhagat, Chandidas, Dhoop Chhaon, Manzil, Anath Ashram, Vidyapati, President, Abhaagan, Jawani ki Reet, Sapera, Haar Jeet, Lagan, Saugand, Wapas and Wasiat Nama. Anjangarh (1948) was his last famous film with New Theatres. He is known for introducing play-back singing for the first time in the Hindi feature film Dhoop Chhaaon (1935). The song 'Main Khush Hona Chahun Ho Na Paaun..' had an all women chorus led by Parul Ghosh with Suprova Sarkar and Harimati picturised in a dance sequence. Other playback singers of New Theatre were Radha Rani, Ila Gosh, Dhananjay Bhattacharya.

I had been listening to a lot of Saigal lately and was wondering more about this MD, thanks for the info.

If someone could clarify who KC Boral is - does that mean Khemchand & Boral worked together?

It's just a typing error.They mean R.C.Boral. If you scroll down on the same page you'll find Chitragupt spelled as Cjitragupt, Avinash Vyas spelled as Avinash Vays, Raja Nene spelled as Raja Naine, etc. :)

Ok, thanks Milind, I was beginning to think it was either a team, or a father or son, appreciate that. :)
