"As Gulzar, one of his closest professional associates, says: "Nobody thinks like him, nobody works like him. He understood the medium of cinema inside out." Indeed, the secret of Pancham’s unparalleled success as a music director lay in his inborn ability to come up with compositions that merged seamlessly with the spirit of a film.
He had the talent and the tenacity to rise above the obvious constraints of his calling – the Mumbai film industry, especially since the traders edged out the creators in the late 1970s, has not been known to be particularly supportive of overly gifted composers – and come up with gems that bore the stamp of genius all over. He followed his heart to the very end even when he was asked to deliver made-to-order numbers."
