The high-profile composer-duo, who were acknowledged by other musicians as the only ones who were 98 per cent original, had a unique style of working. Each one had thorough knowledge of music and each one was a complete composer, and it was a known fact that each used to compose a complete song individually. Later, whatever contribution Jaikishan had to Shankers tune and vice-versa was incorporated just a little before the recording. Of the two, Shanker was more classically-inclined and composed more raag-based songs. Jaikishan, who was a natural, composed the light, romantic compositions and was more versatile among the two. The two had an understanding that Shanker would do the classical dance compositions, while the background score would be handled by Jaikishan.

Most of the paired music directors except Husnalal Bhagatram were assistants to other music directors for long times before they got their individual breaks, but SJ as Shanker Jaikishen were fondly called, were assistant only once to Ram Ganguly in RK Films Aag. With Barsaat they got in full control and remained so for 25 years at a stretch. One more thing, Shanker Jaikishen were the only Music Directors who won maximum number of Filmfare trophies till 1972 in a single category, even more than Bimal Roy, whose trophies were mixed for Producer, Director, Editing etc.
