If you can abuse and take pride in it then a career in Bollywood awaits you! With Batameez Dil ruling the playlist, Nautanki Sala soon hitting the screens and Har Ek Friend Kamina Hota Hai competing for the status of Generation Y's (or is it called Z) anthem you sure have a chance with your swearing skill set in Bollywood. Oh and just in case you have forgotten the DK Bose… and of course all the ‘beeps’ in Delhi Belly and yes the soon-to-be-released chilled out film, Go Goa Gone. A little reality check for Go Goa Gone makers… you are confusing swearing for comedy!
Now I completely understand that swearing is very much a part of our daily vocabulary these days (times have changed from parents scolding & punishing their children on swearing… swearing is cool for all age groups…sigh!) and swinging to peppy beats is a lot of fun but I am sure we can do a lot better when it comes to lyrics. The sad bit while we look back at the music our parents used to listen from Arth to Anand to Mili to Saath Saath… I wonder what the next generation is going to call ‘classics’? Perhaps a Munni Badnam will be for them what Tum Itna Jo Muskara Rahe Ho is for us.
Call me old fashioned but the badnam, batameez, sala, kaminey….is sure not my kind of music. I say bring on the ‘so-called-cool’ lyrics & create cheerful beats but do it sans swearing.
