Syllable-abuse in southern film music

Posted by Karthik

Former Outlook journalist Krishna Prasad’s rant about Kannada composers using non-Kannada singers seems justified, but as a Tamilian, I’ve been through this phase and somehow managed to extricate myself out of Udit Narayan’s Tamil syllable-abuse. To be fair, Sonu and Sadhna have genuinely improved recently. However, attributing this trend to a possible lack of self-esteem seems far-fetched. After all, this is cinema, whose objective is making money. As long as these lingo-terrorists don’t invade the folk and bhavageete territory, I frankly don’t think there’s any cause for concern. Let’s look at better ways to promote better forms of music, instead.

Keywords: Ee Preethi Yeke Bhoomi Melide, Prem
