Javed Akhtar & Shabana Azmi Interview | Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi speak to Anupama Chopra about that horrific car accident, the ‘atrocious’ nature of today’s music, and why India should be proud of lip-sync songs.
The music scenario in India is pathetic and who can explain better than legend lyricist like Javed Shaab. He hasn’t written anything nice since ages as more and more movie makers are trying to cash upon 80s & 90s popular songs as remixes. There is nothing left in the name of creativity all these people do is generate some high pitch or high bass sound and repeat them in the loop with some hook tune. Then chreographer brings in some scantily dressed foreign ‘gori’ to gyrate their hips and bounce their bosom. Is this what we call entertainment these days ?
Well, Javed shaab is hopeful some day better music director and lyricist will come and once again bring back melody in the cinema.
