Manna Dey's strengths were obvioushe could hold high and low notes, he could handle complex arrangements and always sang clearly
It was a longstanding grouse of singer Manna Dey that he rarely got an opportunity to sing for the hero in Hindi films. It was not as if he was not as good as his peers such as Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh and Kishore Kumar, or that music directors did not acknowledge his excellent, tuneful singing. But they could only think of him for songs sung on screen by the comedian, or for classical, raga-based compositions or those anonymous, background songs, usually with a philosophical content.
