Bollywood Running Out Of Original Music
There was a time when Bollywood used to produce good music and the main reason behind creating such music was the fact that Bollywood had some great musicians who were considered as institutions because of their hard work, dedication and experimentation. Unfortunately, today Bollywood is not producing good music at all. There are many movies releasing currently in Bollywood as compared to the number which used to be released back in 80’s and 90’s but the music is simply forgettable and fails to register. Now, the reprise versions of old songs or inspirations of classics are added in most of the Bollywood movies. Let’s not talk about the movies which released in the past and featured older tracks with upgraded music (Read: Copied Songs Of Bollywood Become Inspiration – It Happens Only In India); let’s focus on upcoming films for now!
Fanney Khan’s Halka Halka Suroor is actually an upgraded version of Late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s famous Qawwali with the same name. Although the music is rearranged and ever the lyrics are reworked a bit but the grounds on which the song is composed is the same.
Amma Dekh Tera Munda Bigra Jaaye is one of the most popular songs from 90’s and reused in Pakistani and Indian films quite a few times. It was filmed on Jackie Shroff in Stuntman where he romanced Zeba Bakhtiar, the same song was also filmed on Jan Rambo (Afzal Khan) in the movie titled the same (Munda Bigri Jaaye). Cut to 2018, in Nawabzaade the song is again reworked and will be shown on Raghav, Punit, Isha, Dharmesh and Shakti. This song is again musically reworked to multiple levels and have rap verson added to it as well.
Jan Rambo’s Amma Dekh
Who can for forget Sushmita Sen’s first ever sizzling number “Dilbar Dilbar” from Sirf Tum, Sanjay Kapoor starrer which bombed at the box-office like his other outings. Sushmita Sen took the level of Dilbar Dilbar to another level and many watched the film just to watch that song, back then. Credit also goes to Alka Yagnik for singing it so well. The same song will be seen in John Abraham’s upcoming film Satya Meva Jayate and the song is more like an item song filmed on Norah Fatehi.
