Q.

Shreya Ghosal is no doubt a very good singer. Even being a layman, I find beautiful tone, rhythm in her voice and it reminds me the younger age of Great Lataji. But it seems to me that despite being a very good artist and having enough period of shine, Shreya will not be able to reach the mile stone what Lataji has achieved ! Your valued views and kind opinion please.

Tags: good singer, music, shreya ghosal

Dear ashish da , my opinion differs here . It was the impact of time , good music, good lyricist, good composers and quality muisc lovers that Lata jee had enjoyed . She had no competitors like Shreya. We can count well how many other female contemporary artiste there were during the time of Latajee. It was such a time when Latajee had strong comand over musicians and msuic companies as many survived because of her but now the scenario is quite different . Singers are at a stones throw . every one can sing . musicians have amples of choice . Indeed singers have no role in industry . Its very true that shreya Ghoshal is a very prolific singer but not politician. She has to learn how to retain top position . Singing alone cant give prosperty at this juncture . Bollywoood Indsutry is having very tough time . So far singing concers I love her softness but feel she is yet to learn how to sing fast nos with commanding voice .She is a very good human being and never fights or request f ...more

Shreya Ghoshals voice mesmerized viewers on the television show Sa Re Ga Ma not once but twice after which, Shreya became one of the most sought after playback singers in Bollywood.Shreya Ghoshal won the National Film Award for Best Female Playback Singer in 2002 and 2006, for Bhairi Piya from Devdas and Dheere Jalna from Paheli respectively.

In 2006, Ghoshal was awarded the Filmfare RD Burman Award for New Music Talent. She has also won the Filmfare Best Female Playback Award four times for Devdas, Jism, Guru and Singh is Kinng, as well as for the Tamil movie Sillunu Oru Kaadhal.
This is very pathetic how many know about other champions of our country like so many games and sports including chess champion people know only about cricket:;We lac proper recognition, this discrimination is going on since centuries.

Dear ashsi it is very difficult to compare any person of repute. Moreover, I have jus heard the name of Shreya Ghosal, as i never listend to todays's singers song. As each and every person says she seems to be a good singer. In Devdas i listened to Dola re Dola , I think there are two singers in it , i do not know who is Shreya as both the singers sang beautifully. As far as Lata is concerned, as Joyesh have said in those days there were good musicians, good lyrists and i think Lata got a hold over the musicians and hence she was unconquered in those days, When Lata was at her best during late fifites and sixties , most of the singers retired and Noor Jahan left the country. Shamshad Begum retired and Gita Dut expired and hence except her sister, no one can conquer her. For Asha she use to sing cabret and other song. Only O.P.Nayyar have not taken Lata due to reason best known to him, as Lata was totally dominating the scene. Even Suman Kalyanpuri use to take second fiddle to he ...more

Only time can prove that...Latajis legendary status was not achieved in one day...or only singing a few good songs.

Lataji is Lataji and Shreya is Shreya,there cant be any comparism. You cant say that what lataji has achieved, Shreya wont be able to reach, She may achieve more than that. KAL KISI NE NAHI DEKHA.
