Mumbai, March 15, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio): Gone are those days when people used to say ‘Hamare zamane mein jo gaane they vo ab kahan!’ but the composers and music directors made them shut their mouth. The old classics are coming back. The composers say that their songs are not copied but they are ‘inspired’ songs. The era of so called ‘inspired’ songs is in full swing.
The song ‘Dhak Dhak Karne Laga’ is it from the superhit movie ‘Beta’ which was released in the year 1991 or from the movie ‘Nautanki Sala’ which is all set to release? The question has two answers and so as the set of audinces- The Youth and the golden Ager.
Nowadays the majority of the box office crowd is the youth. The youth wants something catchy and the cunning filmmakers and music directors are giving them what they want without even spending a little time. Because of these ‘inspired’ songs the youth can listen to the old songs which have lost their genuine touch. Even the original works of upcoming music composers, which are hard to find, is overshadowed.
The recent example of ‘inspired’ songs are ‘Khoya Khoya Chand’, ‘Hawa Hawai’ from the movie Shaitan, ‘Apni Toh Jaise teise’ from Housefull, ‘Bachna ae Haseeno’ from ‘Bachna ae Haessno’ and the latest ‘So Gaya yeh Jahan’ from Nautanki Sala and the list goes on.
