All throughout my life music and dance have given passion to drive my soul at a level I can’t describe. They have acted as backbone in all phases of my life. Hindi music is enormous that we have songs for all seasons and reasons. Just take the Hindi film music only we have songs like “Dekha Ek khawab toh yeh silsile bane” or “Aaj kal phano Zameen“ or “Aaanewal Pal” of 1980’s to “Sheila Ki jawani” or “Muni Badnam hue darling tere liye” to latest to this list is “ Bhaag Bhaag DK Bose”. As the Indian society have changed so has changed the music to keep audience enticed. Neha Dupia has once said only 2 things sell in this industry “SRK or cheap slangs”. So when one stopped selling at box office, film makers have resorted to other.
But shift in just one year is mind blowing from a gal singing “Munni badnam hue” portraying the character of the someone who doesn’t fear to display her affection for a guy in this world to Sheila Ki Jawani , gal who doesn’t need a guy to make her feel pampered.She is happy just being with herself and knows how to enjoy life. So, easy expression of love has become and single status is now people vouch for. To challenge Munni and Sheila, Deepika Padukone added the quotient of Dum Maaro Dum Phir kaahe ki society, saali kaahe ka paakhanda where she just said stop carrying about this damn society and everyone has almost same needs so why care about the hypocrites. Then with jazzy pop beats Party Abhi Bakki Hai lyrics just conveyed where people have learned to party harder on weekends to avoid frustrations of the office. When gals were creating so much buzz I think guy felt left out and its time to take the lead so our all time favourite bachelor living heart on the shoulders said what people have been saying to him Character Dheela Hai. Then the last one in the list “Bhaag DK Bose” was bizaare for me.First the lyrics “Daddy mujhse bola, Tu galati hai meri Tujhpe Zindagani guilty hai meri Saabun ki Shaqal mein, beta tu toh nikla keval jhaag, these lyrics made think how struggling the life of people have become but punch was the word “Bhaag DK Bose”. It was just accidentally that I realized this fact when I was watching the Zoom Channel and a director pointed out how can censor board approve of the “Bhaag D.K.Bose” Song? This compelled me to Google on the same and I just felt naïve. It just raised a question in my mind Are we really the Mango people with Mango desires or we are accepting whatever is coming our way. With all the tamaash going around us is it truly only the music being jeopardize or our souls? If somebody finds any retort to balance this act just help the emotional people who found peace in the music of Mozart or Pandit Ravi Shankar or Mohd Rafi or Kishore Kumar list would be long and today’s five minute fame songs.
