There is so little activity went on for Geetaji during the years of 1966 to 1969. It is so hard to believe that a great talent like Geetaji, who ruled the world of singing, who mesmerized music loving people all over India, went into obscurity and oblivion during these last years of her singing. It is such a heartbreaking story to think of so much talent going completely unnoticed, unrecognized and bypassed. Geetaji, who once took the nation by storm with her God-given gifted voice, was no more recognized as a part of the main-stream playback singing group.
Still Geetaji sang in six movies in 1966. Here are the details of these. For Jimmi’s “Duniya Hai Dilwalon Ki” she had a duet with Minu Purshottam. For Basant Parakah’s “Hum Kahan Jaa Rahe Hain” she had a duet with Mahendra Kapoor. In Robin Banerjee’s “Husn Ka Ghulam” she sang a solo. In S. Mohinder’s “Professor X” she had a solo. For C. Arjun’s “Sushila” (“she sang a duet with Mohd. Rafi. Finally for Kanu Roy’s “Uski Kahani” she recorded a solo.
In 1967, Geetaji sang in four different movies and a fifth one that was a reissue of “Sachche Moti”, this time under a different name “Rajoo”. The movies she sang that were released in 1967 were Dhaniram’s “Awara Ladki” (a solo), Jaidev’s “Hamare Gham Se Mat Khelo” (a solo), a solo in Vedpal Verma’s “Maya Sundari”, for Jimmi’s “Pyaar Ki Kahani” she sang a duet with Mohd. Rafi and also a solo. In N. Dutta’s “Rajoo” she sang two solos.
During 1967 Geetaji acted as the leading lady in a Bengali movie called “Badhubaran”. This was released in February 1967. It was directed by Dilip Nag. The music was composed by Kamal Dasgupta. Her leading man in the movie was Pradeep Kumar. Rakhi Biswas played the role of younger Geetaji in the movie. Ms. Biswas became a character actress in Hindi of good reputation. She was married to lyricist Gulzarji and was known as Rakhee Gulzar. Like rest of her life during this time in her career, this movie with Geetaji as its leading lady had a dismal showing.
