I agree with your perception 100%, ..
Let me put my perceptions this way..
Creativity knows no boundaries and limits.. RabindraNath, Kaji Nazrul wrote poetry and made music about varied subjects and was not bounded by a script dictated by a Producer. Or a Baul or a Folk musician is not bounded by producers..or even classical musicians or Pop-stars.. Their imagination is their limit...and they structure their ART henceforth.. Hence, it is vast. In Filmy music what I feel is it is only bounded by typical situations in the story and situation and hence musicians/Artists/Lyricists/Composers are not stretched to their limits. To have a Semi-claasical music they may need a situation or a Period film..
When a Hariprasad Chaurasia plays the flute, I can conjure up an imaage of Radha-Krishna in a leela or just a shephard playing it get the sheep back or it may lull me sleep and give me peace..or in a full moon night I may dream of my beloved........the image is on the state of my mind then...
When masses conjures up an image to film songs it is the film situations and filmstars which comes to our minds (atleast my mind).....but when I listen to non-filmy I conjure up myriad images... Hence I feel Playback singing is a bit limited in that sense, nothing wrong in it, but I would love see Singers associated with their own images. They got success because they has successful films which gave them recognition..and as a result raised their BRAND value, which later helped them sell their music.
Who knows, Lata ji may have give us even greater music if she did not have to keep Madhubala or a Waheeda Rehman or a Madhuri Dixit in her mind when she sang and modulated her voice?
just my humble take. But agree with your view also...
PS: I am great fan of yours and your articles..

so true, because no matter how much publicity they get at the end of the day srgmp contestants atleast have sung a song like debojit for id vinit for hr himani for ad sharib for id what's the use of so much publicity that u can't even get a song i and by the way amit sana also sung for kalyug. i feel pity for indian idol all they can give their contestant is publicity and more publicity no songs nothing just raising the TRP of the channel.
