    Farah Khan said, "Pancham Da was pure genius. If we write about the history of Hindi cinema's music, his name would be on the top. Even today when his songs are played on radio, television and films it feels like they are songs from a recent movie. The songs are still very fresh and relevant even today."

    Ace composer, Shankar Mahadevan said, "His musical contribution gave birth to many iconic characters in Bollywoo d. For example, he composed the character background score for Gabbar's (in movie ‘Sholay') entry by combining different unconventional musical instruments such as the ghungroo."
