This is a shortcut that entertainment industry is practicing these days to attract mass – immense hype. For movies it’s ok , we have certifications but what about songs ?
I am talking about the much hyped and played Deepika’s item number – Mit Jaye gum (Dum Maro Dum).
Play the song beats are awesome, catchy and shocking lyrics. Play it again to listen it carefully. Yes with the popular original melodious chanting “hare Krishna hare Rama” words are raunchy and if you by mistake happen to listen it with family or even your younger siblings they are humiliating.
We have moral police pressing siren for leading lady dressing in movies or few sensuous scenes or at times for complete movie, but why not for songs. If advertisements can be banned, then why not these cheap/crap/raunchy songs can be? Controversy was created on a word from Aaja Nachley ,2009. Now a full song is released full of vulgarity. What censor board is doing? Songs like Mit jaye gum should be passed with Adult Certificate only. They are not pleasing rather give pain to ears and guilt. Guilt because it reflects the mental state of society. Are we actually???
Seductive songs were made in past also. But please understand there is a difference in being seducing and cheap. Seducing can be just like expressing any other emotions but no excuses for cheap. Long back in 1986 Madhuri’s item number create such sensation – Choli ki peeche from Khalnayak. Reasons were given, that it depicts the words from a dancer and would audience expects a bar dancer type woman singing soft songs in front of a terrorist.
Few more songs that should be passed with “Adult only certificate” are
Pyaar do pyaar lo (Thankyou)
Tinku jiya (Yamla Pagla Diwana)
Kaat ke rakh dunga (Love Sex aur Dhokha)
Dum laga (Dil Dosti etc)
Khada hain khada hain (Andaz 1993)
I am looking forward to hear your views about it. For me such songs are sinful not sanity.
