In 1947, Hemant Da recorded a non-film song called "Ganyer badhu" ("The rural bride") that had music and lyrics by Salil Chowdhury. Hemant da and Salil paired again in several songs over the next few years. Almost all these songs proved to be very popular. By the mid-1950s, Hemant Kumar had consolidated his position as a prominent singer and composer. In Bengal, he was one of the foremost exponents of Rabindra Sangeet and perhaps the most sought-after male singer In the late 1950s, Hemant da ventured into movie production under his own banner: Hemanta-Bela productions. The first movie under this banner was a Bengali film directed by Mrinal Sen, titled Neel Akasher Neechey (1959). The movie went on to win the President's Gold Medal — the highest honor for a movie from Government of India. In the next decade, Hemant’s production company was renamed Geetanjali productions and it produced several Hindi movies such as Bees Saal Baad, Kohraa, Biwi Aur Makaan, Faraar, Rahgir and Khamoshi — all of which had music by Hemant Kumar. Only Bees Saal Baad and Khamoshi were major commercial successes.
His legacy still lives on through the songs he has recorded, music he has composed.
