Shantanu Moitra sounds like a veteran musician

Shantanu Moitra has only 6 or 7 movies on his resume but don't let that baffle. He works with great poets such as the great Gulzar and has composed music for movies that have turned a new leaf in the history of bollywood such as Parineeta and Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. And in each of his songs is a newness that isnt often seen in bollywood. I can go as far as saying that he makes AR Rehman sound repetitive. His songs wont get on the popular charts as often as the cheapness that the likes of Himesh Reshammiya spit out.

Let me list some gems from Moitra to give you an idea
- Urzu Urzu Durkut (Yahaan)
- Man Yeh Baawra (Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi)
- Piya Bole (Parineeta)
- Kasto Mazza (Parineeta)

I hope to savor his music for years to come
