movie tracks

Off late, movie tracks are becoming increasingly rotten.... considering both, Hindi and Kannada.

The movie Sevanthi Sevanthi was released a few months ago...leading to packed houses......and it did complete 100 days of film screening.....to an empty theatre. Claiming that the highlight of the movies.... i.e., the music......is the most stupidist thing......to be heard in recent times.

The music...is folk by nature......is jumbled with some drums etc....making it harsh to hear. I've always liked folk music...but this anything but the degradation of the original tracks. Kunal Ganjawala has given voice to most of the songs if not all. It is indeed difficult for anybody to sing folk songs........Kannada playback singers themselves find it a tough job. Ganjawala is from the Hindi industry and sings Kannada folk tracks......which is in plain terms..... is surprising. This guy is not being picked at.....but why would anybody want somebody from a non-kannada background to sing folk material.....which sounds heavenly only with the local accent...the correct pronunciation of words...etc....taking the example of pronouncing yellow as ellow!! In addition...the music is harsh...on the ears......with the original tantalizing nature easily forgotten. Not to forget the choreography.....if it may be called so.


Why are the old melodies being converted to dull stereotypes......with the old charm lost.

The latest in this list is the recently released movie Gandugali Kumararama. Being a periodical movie...it has the modern sound of the drums....... in the least they should have been made to sound music belonging to those times.

Pathetic!!!

hi mouna,
you are right, in kannada several oldies are being converted in to modern types, but only reduction in quality. But to me, billywood giving good compostion, recently Gangster, Fanaa, krishh etc...are nice. So there is enogh in hindi but sadly not in kannada:(

hindi music is also terrible apart from some numbers which are very few in number.... the music these days is really terrible.... like himesh reshmiyya....and personally speaking....i did'nt like krishh....or gangster....

yes...
each one's tastes different, so i may like one which you hate...but i agree that these days dhamaka songs like Reshamiyas coming in large numbers, still i feel there is a ray of hope in bollywood

mouna said...

yes ....u said it right....a ray of hope being a rahman, a vishal bharadwaj, regarding are kannada songs.....some of them actually good...in the sense can be listened to oce or twice...but the lyrics are awful.... one uses everyday language....

now a days majority movies are dubs. i think they want to release more and more movies than to have quality movies. earlier days i.e., prior to 1970s good classic movies were released but the number wise they were few in a year.

anyhow, good presentation of facts.
