For me Shreya Ghosal is the Celine Dion of Indian pop music today. But she has to go a long way to be on that level with Celine. The crack in the voice, the modulation and the scale, pitch everything, Shreya is showing lot of promise but she should not be confined within the limitations of Film songs of Bollywood. For me her best number till now is Pal Pal Har Pal in Lage Raho Munna Bhai.

As for the male singers, I think after Kishore Kumar there is only only one name that can be uttered with semblance of respect and that is Kumar Shanu. His fortune is that he got RD in "1942 A love Story". That itself is great stroke of fortune for him. Among others, I have respect for SP Balsubramaniam. To some extent like Shreya, SP can be compared to Steve Wonder for his songs in Maine Pyar Kiya. But unfortunately it was a good peace of plagiarism for the music scorer but SPB did wonderfully well in Indianising a popular Western song " I just call to say I Love You" by Steve.

For the m ...more

No one on female side, Shreya ghosal is the best of what we have, and male side the famous one is Sukhwinder, but there was a guy names 'Ameya Date' on SaReGaMa who was much much better than any commercial singer out there.

Have heard of many critics of Atif Aslam but when he sings, he defies them all. He is good to listen to, isn't it?

I love Kailash Kher since I love Sufi Sangeet. His voice matches it best.
