I watched Do Bigha Zamin last night, and plan on seeing them all!
The musical numbers are beautiful and hypnotic. I had a hard time staying awake during some of the music, not due to boredom but because they are so relaxing. Funny thing is, my reaction is totally different to Bollywood, which I don't really care for.
I have always enjoyed the music in Satyajit Ray's films, but Bimal Roy really shifts into high gear.
If you enjoyed the music of Madhumati I would recommend two movies which have very good songs, Baiju Bawra and Mughal e Azam. The latter is the famous fable of Emperor Akbar's son and future Emperor Jahangir falling in love with Anarkali, a dancer in the court. The female singer, the most popular Lata Mangeshkar is rather too shrill but that is what the masses like.The male singer Mohammed Rafi is different and very good.
Ravi Shanker composed the music for Satyajit Rai movies.
