Top Ten Indian Male Singers of All Time

Song is an important part of the Indian film. Fans cannot think Indian movie without song. It plays very important role to attract millions of fans to come and watch films on silver screen. Indian music industry has a rich history and it is getting rich day by day. The person who plays vital role behind its popularity is called singer. They are also getting popular with their songs.

Here, I have made a list of top ten male singers of Bollywood. They have been selected based on their popularity, versatility and voice. If you have any information to share then feel free to mention it in the comment section.

Kishore Kumar:

Kishore Kumar is a very household name among the Indian movie lovers. He has got equal success as an actor and playback singer, but received more success for his voice. Very few actors got as much success as like him.

After the release of Aradhana in 1969, he reached at the top of his popularity. Here, he lent his voice in a song titled “Roop Tera Mastana” which became hit. After that, movie lovers saw him ruling the next two decades.

Without having any formal training in music, he touched the hearts of millions of listeners around the world with his golden voice. As a singer, his popularity was increasing in such a way that past greats like Mohammad Rafi found it hard to compete with him.

He had good connection with Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan and had the chance to work with almost all lead actors and music directors of his time. With bagging 8 Filmfare Award for Best Male Playback Singer, he holds the record for the most number of Filmfare Awards won for that category. Madhya Pradesh government gave him "Lata Mangeshkar Award" for his contribution to Indian cinema.

Mohammad Rafi:

Mohammad Rafi is one of the greatest playback singers in the history of Indian cinema. There is no one who can be compared with him. He was the dominant figure in the Golden Era of Hindi Cinema. In his 35 years of career from 1945 to 1980, he has sung 7,516 Hindi film songs, 112 non-Hindi film songs, and 328 private (non-film) songs and performed all types of songs.

In his time, he has worked with almost all the music directors and actors. He won National Award and 6 Filmfare Awards. In 1967, Indian government honored him with Padma Shri award.

Mukesh Chand Mathur:

He is widely known as Mukesh to his millions of fans. As his voice was extremely suitable for the tragic films, he was called the king of sad songs. He was deeply influenced by the legendary singers- KL Saigal, Rafi and Kishore, of his time, and he had to struggle hard to come out of their shadows. For his voice, he was compared with KL Saigal.

However, music director, Naushad, helped him to create his own style and to come out of his saigal style. Though he had to go through many ups and downs, his career spanned for three decades and he is still popular today.

Manna Dey:

Born as Prabodh Chandra Dey, he got commonly known by his nick name “Manna Dey”. He has shared equal success in both Bengali Assamese and Hindi films.

Though he performed all types of songs from Pop to folk, he is ranked as one of the best classical singers among all singers of Hindi film music.

His great voice, versatility and command over classical music helped him to be a great singer. He has sung more than 3500 songs over the course of his career.

He was honored with the Padma Shri award in 1971 and the Padma Bhushan in 2005 and the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2007 by the Indian government.

Hemanta Kumar Mukhopadhyay:

Commonly Known as Hemanta Mukherjee, was the legendary singer, music composer, producer and one of the leading supporters of Rabindra Sangeet. He was the doyen of Bengal and Hindi music.

He was trained by Ustad Faiyaz Khan but his guidance was cut short by Ustad’s untimely death. He was blessed with versatility but limited by range. Despite performing a limited number of songs, he is still popular today.

Bhupen Hazarika:

Bhupen Hazarika is blessed with multifaceted talent. He has successful footstep in almost all the cultural arenas, including, writing poetry, lyrics, composing music, singing, acting, journalism and film-making, with highest repute. However, he is mainly known as singer to his fans and a living pioneer of Assam’s film industry in the Northeast.

In his songs, he talked about ordinary people and their sufferings that made him popular among all class of ethnic and religious communities not only in Assam but also in other countries outside India. He was a strong supporter of communism and that is why, fans could find the themes of communal amity, universal justice, empathy and humanity.

Most of his songs were mainly sung and written in the Assamese language by him, but have been translated and sung in many languages, especially in Bengali and Hindi.

In his long career, he won many major awards in India and performed more than 1,500 songs.

Rahul Dev Burman:

The son of singer and Bollywood music composer Sachin Dev Burman and his wife Meera, Rahul Dev Burman, is a gift in the Hindi film industry. He kept very important contribution in the Hindi film industry by revolutionizing the filmi music in Hindi films for which he is credited. His style and techniques are still followed by the composers of today. Besides composing music, he also lent his voice in eighteen movies for which he himself composed the scores.

It is said that he used to get tunes in his dreams. Being advised by his father, he used to get up as soon as he dreamt of a tune and wrote it down.

Kumar Sanu:

For his singing style, Kumar Sanu often compared with an Indian legend singer, Kishore Kumar. However, he came out of Kishore’s shadow and developed his own singing style. In the early 1990s, he reached at the top of his popularity at a time when Gulshan Kumar ruled the music industry. He has given a number of hit song to his fans.

He has been criticized for not having a range or a good voice. He won the Filmfare Best Male Playback Award over five consecutive years. In 2009, he was honored with the Padma Shri award by the Government of India.

Mahendra Kapoor:

Mahendra Kapoor is another Indian playback singer who got huge popularity among fans for his Rafi like voice and ability to sing at higher end of the octave. His career spanned five decades and sang over 25,000 songs in various regional languages. Some of his memorable songs are ‘Chalo ek baar phir se Ajnabi ban jayen hum dono’ in Gumrah, ‘Neele gagan ke taale’ in Hamraaz. But he became identical to the patriotic songs like ‘Mere Desh Ki Dharti', in Manoj Kumar’s film Upkaar.

Indian government honored him with the Padma Shri award in 1972.

KL Saigal:

Kundan Lal Saigal, shortly called as KL Saigal, is a legendary figure in the Indian film industry. The singer-actor is known as the first superstar of the Hindi film industry. He died long times ago but his popularity is still intact. It became possible because of the magic that he had in his voice.

      One more thing.... KishorDa was a versatile artist and a good singer... He became so popular just because of his deep voice(I love it)... he was not as good for classical songs as Rafi or KJY..

      well i dont know why we compare Kishore da with Md.Rafi ji....Just understand that without any formal training, Kishore da sung so well that his songs touched millions of hearts and he reached such a height that no body can be matched, whereas Md.Rafi is a trained singer.I personally used to like Md.Rafi's songs but its now been 14 years that i like Kishore Kumar songs. Kishore
      kumar's voice and singing quality was god gifted so when god was with him who can dare to reach his heights....He also won maximum no of film fare awards.

      Delete
    6. dude when rafi started his career there was no any film fare award. after that there was only best play back singer awards. when kishore came in light then there was award for best male play back singer. rafi had to share his awards with lata, asha, suriya, mukesh and kishore. now if you know kishore also came at rafi time but only he became sucsess when r. d burman composed some easy compositions for him . even rafi sang some songs on kishore's movie lke man mora tarpat etc.
      so there is only one king for male palay back is Md. rafi

    7. Muslim bhais always go for Rafi. Always communal.

    8. Why only muslims? We Hindus also like his songs. That is why he is popular. His songs of Baiju-Bawara recorded in 1952 are still considered all time classics.
      How can anyone forget his songs of TajMahal, Dosti, NeelKamal, Giude, DoBadan, HumDono, Merehuzur, MereMehboob and many more songs from innumerable movies. Perhaps he will be remembered as the all time best male playback singer of not only Bollywood, of whole India. Because none of the singers like Kishor kumar, SPB, PBShrinawas, KJJesudas, Hemant kumar and others equalled him.

      Filmfare awards were started in 1958. Md Rafi's best songs were recorded before that.(He started singing in Hindi in 1944. In 1952 Baiju Bawara was released). However in the first year itself he got the award for Choudavi Ka chand. And after that he got 5 more times, totalling 6 awards.
      He was awarded Padmashri in 1967, first playback singer to be awarded with Padmashri, at a time when national awards were so hard come by. (Todays Bharat Ratna is almost equal to Padmashri of 60's).

      He was also the first to record 25000 songs and his his name was registered in Guiness book.

      Rafi means Height(Uancha). No body can reach it.

    All of above belongs to north , so they are showing partiality ,nothing best and worst, but also they knew that only one great singer in india that is SP.BALASUBRAHMANYAM,he have perfect male voice and he can sing any song as per the body language of any actor, if we watch the song on screen we feel that the song is sung by the actor.So to day also is singing.if music director make a doll,SPB gives life to that.

    singer means who sing the songs,which penetrate into the hearts of normal people by his hearable voice only not by the knoledge of classical music,how many classical musicians can sing a song beautifully,in india so many singers have the knoledge of classical music that's it, but they are not good singers,and they cant satisfy the all music lovers,only 8 percent of people will satisfy(who have the good knoledge of classical music )with them. But a singer who have good voice,technique,good modulation,good slang,voice clarity,good pronunciation is best singer and his voice reaches to the ears and hearts of the 100 percent of the people(including 8 pesent).so the original all time best singers are

  41. this seems to be a personal fav list of 10 singers of the person who has created it...how could anybody miss out sonu nigam who is d best singer india has ever seen, india has never seen any versatile singer to his match and on the popularity scale too...R.D.Burman as a singer? r u fooling the viewers...he is a music director and not a singer, he has used his hard voice in some parts of his compositions...

    Many singers are unique in one or the other areas of singing. We cannot rate any of them as the best, Still we can rate them as(my personal view):
    Best Singer (Classical): Yesudas
    Best Singer (Play Back and feelings) : Kishore Kumar
    Best Singer (Range and Melody) : Mohd. Rafi
    Best Singer (South):S.P. Balasubramanium
    Best Singer (New Generation):Mohit Chauhan

      Rafi's range is less... he has limited lower frequency and higher freq capabilities... but he can be considered as father of play back singing with his addition of feelings to the songs

    10. --- ( DONT FIND ANYONE WORTH A 10TH SPOT TO SHARE THE SAME STAGE WITH THESE SINGERS)

    Im from MadhyaPradesh ,have learned hindustani music. In my knowlege ,there is no one who can be staged along with K.J.YESUDAS in the music fraternity. my guru Sir.ram keshav had ones told me to listen more of K.J.Y as his range to sing hindustani - carnatic - film songs - light music (any genre) is unmatached and unparallel to anyone who has lived before him to till date. Forget the devine voice and feel which is widely known - his pronunciation ,attitude to each genre of songs and proficiency in high - medium - low pitch is the best i have i heard till date. great singer ,fabulous ambassidor of indian music. KJY - saluting you genius.

    in india, all hindi film singers(including the latest) are more popular than other regional singers because of their association with hindi as national language. just for a moment, imagine all the hindi singers in other languages and now tell me where they would have been today? nowhere or very little known. if all the regional languages are on par with hindi, then the greatest ever film singer in our country would be without a doubt GHANTASALA. even lataji and rafi considered him incomparable. a fan may prefer other singers but a pure musician always prefers GHANTASALA easily over other indian film singers.

    Mohd. Rafi is far superior singer then KK. KK admits that and a simple example is, when KK was trying to record film Hati Mera Sathi song.. Nafrat ki duniya ko.. he did try 5 times but could not sing the song of that caliber. He then requested MD to contact Mohd Rafi and let him sing this difficult song. Rest is history.. Rafi sang that song and became super hit surpassed all other song in that movie.. SO..RAFI is KING OF KING.. GREATEST OF ALL GREATS..

      This list doesnt make any sense.
      the list should be of the order :
      1. K.J.YESUDAS
      2. MOHAMMED RAFI
      3. LATHA MANGESHKAR
      4. K.S.CHITRA
      5. KISHOR KUMAR
      6. SP BALASUBRAMANYAM
      7. HARIHARAN
      8. SHREYA GHOSHAL
      9. SONU NIGAM
      10. --- ( DONT FIND ANYONE WORTH A 10TH SPOT TO SHARE THE SAME STAGE WITH THESE SINGERS)

      Im from MadhyaPradesh ,have learned hindustani music. In my knowlege ,there is no one who can be staged along with K.J.YESUDAS in the music fraternity. my guru Sir.ram keshav had ones told me to listen more of K.J.Y as his range to sing hindustani - carnatic - film songs - light music (any genre) is unmatached and unparallel to anyone who has lived before him to till date. Forget the devine voice and feel which is widely known - his pronunciation ,attitude to each genre of songs and proficiency in high - medium - low pitch is the best i have i heard till date. great singer ,fabulous ambassidor of indian music. KJY - saluting you genius.

      what a fake list is this..? where is Sonu Nigam? ..do you live in a dustbin like a cockroach who knows nothing about the world? Sonu Nigam is the only singer form India who is popular abroad. He was invited at Harvard university to perform in the front of Ex US president George bush. he collaborated with international singers, bands and musicians like Britney, Jermane Jackson(bro of MJ to tribute MJ) avicii and jay sean.He collaborated with world's best UK based Buckingham symphony orchestra. he is also popular in Asian countries like Nepal, Maldive, Dubai and Shir Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan. he was invited to take dinner with Shri lankan president. and the president of Maldive himself danced with him on stage. he is also loved by all veteran popular playback singers and classical maestros of India like Lata ji, asha ji, manna da, mehandi hasan, naushad, jagjeet sahab, pandit jasraj, Anup jalota and all and even udit narayan shed tears when sonu sang a song in front of him. he is one the most popular celebrities on facebook. see likes on his fan page. he was ranked at 4 in the list of top 10 popular singers of the world. he was mentioned in a textbook of Gk in US school syllabys. he is the only playback singer who can sing both commercials and classicals witrh same perfection..not only can sing but can play many musical instruments as well.. his name was recorded in guineas book of records for singing song Tees mar khan in 54 voices..he is the most versatile singer India has ever produced. he is the one and only who is popular in all form of music pop, playback, bhajans, classicals , gazals and all. no fact is false..you can search on google, watch on youtube, check out on facebook.

    I personally enjoy Kishore Kumar's songs more. But if we take in to consideration evaluation of great singers themselves(who is supposed to know better than us), Md. Rafi is the best of all time....
