I think for  heroine playback it will be  Alka Yagnik.  For pure melody  Shreya Ghoshal will sound better.

@ gopalbhai


some how the current gen under rates Alka ji and this mostly has roots in not having listened to Alka enough. I think Alka ruled in play back yet every one gets replaced by some one.

Between Alka & Shreya I would choose Shreya because Alka's voice becomes shrill in higher notes.
But I think Sunidhi is better than both Shreya and Alka.
 
 
 
 
Sunidhi is in a different genre and doesn't have the same classical expertise her strength lies in the voice quality.

very difficult to choose.......Alka, Shreya, Chitra, Sujatha and now Chinmai have beautiful and lovely voices  ( they sound feminine) which add sweetness to melodious songs.....back to the question......I don't think  I'm qualified to judge them....but I think shreya is good at solo songs where as alka is superb at duet songs......her voice blends perfectly with udit, sonu nigaam, shankar mahadevan, etc.....
 
my personal favourite is alka.....there are songs (tunes) which I dislike but many times alka made me listen to it because of her voice.....

I dont listen to Alka these days... New singers have over shadowed her.. Shreya, Sunidhi and other new singers have already taken her place.. We cant compare them, but somehow even I would go with Shreya.. Alka sounds a bit shrill while Shreya sounds sweet..

IDji u hv a knack of starting controversial topics,i thinkWinkLOLLOL...gud way of making ppl srespond t posts...no one can stay away from such topics Big smile
 
   I personally like Shreya's voice over Alka's....it has a certain freshness to it ...I also think she has a stronger classical base(her songs in SRGM,mere dholna,chale aao saiyaan) etc...But Alka yagnik is queen in  her genre of songs an totally rules in the romantic numbers..I am surprsied so many ppl hv said that her vouce is shrill in high notes...I think Alka has a sweet,soothing and velvety voice..her voice in raja ko rani se,churake dil mera,baazigar,vaada raha sanam etc are unmatched...she may not sound as gud today,but during her  peak period she was wonderful......in afct,she hasa different voice quality which wld suit certain types of songs(and heroines) better than Shreya and alos vice versa...so they really can't be compared....Alka brought the right touch to the romantic duets of the 90 s making ordinary songs sound very sweet Big smile
 
  basically, a major plus point with boths singers is that both singer  in an original way and do not copy anyone Smile

Shreya is good but I just like Alka better. Of course a lot also depends on what songs they are singing. But it is always good to have new and different voices. Expect Nihira to come in very strong in future too.
