The fifth "trend" was that there was confusion in everyone's mind about which way trends were going, or should go! Evolved listeners across all ages and groups waiting for that elusive good song and score had little to fall back upon to satiate their cravings, unlike the ghazal and bhajan alternatives in the similar discordance of 1984. The result was that below-par traditional scores like Ravindra Jain's Ek Vivaah…aisa bhi (despite his brilliant lyrics), Monty Sharma's Chamku and Ismail Darbar's Mehbooba were rejected as fast as Rajesh Roshan's 'fake' trendy motif in Krazzy 4.
And if Karzzzz and Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na were the only scores that helped their films get great openings, the music of Dostana, Fashion and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi picked up only after the films became hits.http://www.screenindia.com/news/confused-pitch/402002/
Music lost a lot of its importance, as evidenced from its perfunctory use in so many films where the music album (normally released weeks earlier to boost a film's opening) arrived on the shelves after the film hit the theatres and not even promoted for obvious reasons. The current club of music makers seems hardly inclined to outdo themselves (unlike in the past) if a super-star featured in a film and if Singh Is Kinng, Dostana, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Ghajini and now the audio of Chandni Chowk To China are indications, you can either have an A-list star in a film or A-grade music - but not both!
