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?
