O. P. Nayyar started his career by composing the background score for the movie Kaneez (1949). Aasmaan (1952), produced by Dalsukh M. Pancholi was O.P. Nayyar’s first film as independent music director, after which he composed music for Chham Chhama Chham (1952) and Baaz (1953). Noted film producer, director and actor Guru Dutt gave him an opportunity to write, compose and conduct music and songs for several of his movies, and O.P. did not disappoint Guru Dutt. Aar Paar (1954), Mr. & Mrs. ’55 (1955), C.I.D. Shamshad Begum, Geeta Dutt, and Mohammed Rafi sang most of the earlier songs in O.P.s movies. Asha Bhosle was introduced in 1956 in the movie C.I.D. (1956). Nayyar used singers who were able to bring the romance and edgy but sweet voice and depth in their songs. Innumerable hits were produced by OP, as he was called by music lovers everywhere, and many box office hits as well. In 1957 Filmalaya introduced Nasir Hussainas a new director, and wanted someone like O.P. Nayyar to provide the romantic tunes for a new hero and heroine, i.e.Shammi Kapoor and Ameeta. OP’s songs were an amazing hit and brought him in the limelight in the next Nasir Hussain film Tumsa Nahin Dekha (1957). He composed music for Nasir Hussain again in Phir Wohi Dil Laya Hoon (1964) which had popular songs in the voices of Rafi and Asha.
