Salil Choudhury is perhaps the first music director to have done the background score without giving the music for the songs of the same film. He could grasp the situation, the storyline and the emotions of a given sequence so well that very often, he created a music track that was distinctively his own irrespective of whether he composed the songs for the same film or not. It began with Bimal Roys Devdas (1955) where, though SD Burman composed the music for the songs, Roy asked Salilda to compose the background music. Kanoon (1960), BR Chopras film without a single song, had its phenomenal background score done by Salilda. Salilda composed the background music for a large number of Hindi, Malayalam and Tamil films and also for quite a few documentary films for the Films Division of India. He also composed the background score for several documentary films for the Films Division of India.
