Today Kalpana Patowary is the most sought after singer of Bhojpuri Cinema and is the best-selling female artist - Kalpana Patowary has made an indelible impact on the Bhojpuri music industry and audiences everywhere.

But years back the story was not the same. Whereas the first Bhojpuri film produced by Vishwanath Sahabadi in 1961, Ganga Maiya Tohe Piyari Charaihobo, post 1961, only five films were released in next 10 years. In 1978 Bhojpuri cinema got an impetus with Ashok Jain making Dangal. Dangal phenomenon gave way to a reasonable number of successful films from 1980-1990, that included Bitia Bhail Sayan , Bhaiya Dooj, Bairi sawan, Bansuriya Baje, Chandwa ke take Chakor, Dharati Maiyya , Dulha Ganga par ke, Ganga Kinare Mora Gao, Ganga Ghat, Ganga Ke Tir, Ganga Mare Laheria, Hamar Bhauji, Piya Nirmohiya, Saiyya Tere Karan, Sonwa ke Pinjra and Senur. Not too many you can count them on your fingers, and that was supposed to be golden era of Bhojpuri cinema!!!1990-2000 is supposed to be the darkest period in Bhojpuri cinema as there wasn’t a single movie released during this period.

The next big thing was “ Sasura Bara Paisewala”. Made on a budget of 30 lakhs this film went on to make 25 crore Music of this film really turned to be a milestone and here comes Kalpana Patowary’s golden voice to fulfill a long cherished dream of forming a platform to sustain the dying Bhojpuri film industry. Years later she is being compared to the golden voice of Indian cinema Lata Mangeshkar. Yes, Kalpana Patowary is respected as The Lata Mangeshkar of Bhojpuri Cinema.


Hereafter, there was no looking back and today Bhojpuri film industry is the fifth largest film industry in India. From that time till now Bhojpuri film industry has evolved so much that now it has become a global industry. She has sung in more than 200 Bhojpuri films near about 10000 songs on her part as playback vocal. Other than that she sings in 28 other languages and 7000 other songs on her credit.
