DJ Bolli Speaks: Flop Love Songs

DJ Bolli has found herself disappointed. There are many proclaimed romantic songs that are nothing but torture to the ears.

Many would agree that it has now become a norm to keep our ears perked up for that special romantic song in Bollywood films; one that will give rise to that moony look, or possibly get us a bit emotional. However, time and again, DJ Bolli (as I kindly address myself) has found herself disappointed. There are many proclaimed romantic songs that were nothing but torture to the ears; songs with either diabetic-induced and useless lyrics or trashy melody in general. A considerable number of tracks have now become a bore, or should I say laughing stock in the name 'romance'.
This issue has just recently taken my attention and I cannot tolerate it any longer because instead of a decline, there's a steady rise in these flop love songs. Although, in the past years movies are getting better and bolder by not only minting money at the Box Office 200 Cr. Club, but also power pact content delivery, yet certain songs in them are such a drag that flicking them off is the next best option. Before you jump to conclusions, I gave many such songs a chance, but that only resulted in a 'what the heck?' expression plastered on my face as I failed to choose whether what I just listened to was a romantic track or a bunch of random words thrown into a melody and named a "song" (pun intended).
"Dhichkyaaon Doom Doom" from Chashme Baddoor and "Saree Ka Fall Sa" from R...Rajkumar certainly took the cake! How horrendous were those? DJ Bolli is still wondering whether they were actually songs or useless words in high pitch voices. It hurts me to even go on, but there are "Oye Boy Charlie" and "Dil Tu Hi Bataa" from Matru ki Bijlee Ka Mandola and Krrish 3 respectively; both of which may have sounded promising initially in a glimpse, but by the end of it all, I'm sitting here and wondering how this composition received a go for the movie? What exactly was on the minds of the singers and composers? If such is the rate of formulating a song, then DJ Bolli can join the music industry and start up too.
Listening to music as a form of entertainment is one thing, but being subjected to provocative songs is another. There is completely zero level entertainment; hence the main purpose is becoming annihilated. DJ Bolli is absolutely disappointed and left wondering about when the magic of legends such as RD Burman and Madan Mohan will be reinvented. Which other potential romantic tracks do you think became a definite miss after their release?

I disagree i absolutly love sari ke fall sa.

Articles like that are nice when they are objective not when they are biased by the writer opinion, which for that matter, clearly disliked the songs.

Dil Tu Hi Bata is actually a really good song. Don't know why the author of this article doesn't like it :S But Saree Ka Fall is the most bizarre song I've ever heard in my entire life.

What is it with IF and these constant negative articles!

It would have been useful to list both great and worst love songs

for great: Arijit Singh would top the list..his voice is like sex for the ears...esp in Tum Hi Ho and Kabhi Tho Badal Barse

this article would have been appropriate around Valentines Day..which is long gone by now!

I liked Saree ke fall se, although I didn't label it under the romantic category. The rest I agree. I think I'd like it if there were more songs. And maybe a past present comparison?

@stardust2011: BC invest in not only fact giving and thematic articles but opinionated ones as well, just to keep the balance and the monotony out.

This article seems like a personal opinion which should up on a blog and not IF. Not that the songs mentioned up here are great but how does this qualify for being an article. It would have made sense if you had a list of flop songs or list of bad movies with good songs or good movies with bad songs etc.

How can i apply to be a columnist on iF? ;-)
