Here it goes again. We cannot deny the fact that everyone gets influenced by movies at least once in their lifetime. Our movies have songs as their specialty in mainstream feature when compared to other countries. No movies seems to exist without them. By destiny or whatever, they ride the love wave. 99 pc of the movies have love as their main content or partly involves love as a part of it. Love songs are sometimes the greatest masterpieces. Sometimes, I remember the good old movies which have the songs as their pivotal role for the movie plot.

Now, there are indeed movies with such eccentricity, but they are outnumbered by the namesake artificial ones those which, to our frustration, lets us skip the minutes, getting us off the depth and the focus that we have on the movie. Remixes perhaps removed the meaning and significance of the original song altogether. The glitz and glamour are the mantras of the modern youngsters. However, we should appreciate some movies which have either soft, soothing background songs which add us to the impact that they have taken a plunge already. One example that comes from my feeble memory is the songs from the movie “Kalloori”. One special feature of the movie is that all the songs have been shot right before music or song was composed. We should appreciate the effort by the director, lyricist and the music director. The hard nut here is it got feeble appreciation from the lot. Simplicity and thought put to songs would greatly impact the audience and put forth a healthier appetite on quality movies.

“Eeram” is another example worth mentioning. Those who have not heard, please do so. It is quite charming, amazing and heart stealing stuff in it. If I come out with more thoughts, definitely would include that in here.

    our indian cinima is based on commercialization, hence the cinima has to cater too one and all, thats why its an assortment of things given together in form of INDIAN MOVIES

    well i dont know much about TAMIL CINIMA but then, how do u justify the expenses that they claim, if they dont put each and everything then the common public will not buy tkts.

    here every state has its own cinima and they all have to make money

    we cannot compair our model with that of HOLLYWOOD where it gets WORLD premiers and all

    hope u get the point 😛

      I agree with u, dud. The point is, our country is renowned for creating the best in music and entertainment. Good movies should change people’s opinion and outlook on what entertainment really is

    yes even i have the same feelings, but its all about the taste because we are exposed to some of the best works, our preferences have changed but the point not everybody is well aware. and hence i dont complain because its nobody’s fault.

      Hmm. I saw a lot of movies which had only background songs. It was so amazing they blended themselves with the movies and gave the added push to the effect along with the movies. It was an amazing experience.

    and BOLLYWOOD is on the right track, i mean now even in bollywood they are making radical movies which are off the track of Indian cinima, but i am sad that most of them are not marketed well. 😦
