Javed Akhtar is against song-less films

The veteran lyricist is all praise for Bollywood’s young filmmakers and their experimental creations, but he is not particularly happy with films that have no songs

What makes Indian cinema stand out in the crowd of global films is its vibrancy, its colours and its unique dance sequences. It’s difficult to imagine Bollywood without songs. That’s the point Javed Akhtar made recently. Though the seasoned writer-lyricist is impressed with young filmmakers and their movies, he doesn’t quite approve the idea of making these without songs and dance. “Songs have always been the highlight of the Hindi movies, but these youngsters are following the European and the American style and omitting songs from movies. I don’t like this. It should not be done,” said Javed at a recent press conference.

Akhtar really liked recent films like Udaan, Kahaani, Rock On! and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. The 67-year-old also said that he is awestruck by the kind of dialogue, structuring, script and drama projected by the young makers on the big screen. Akhtar is keen to watch John Abraham’s production Vicky Donor. “I have not seen Vicky Donor, but have heard so much about it that now I want to see the movie,” he added.

We hope Javed sa’ab will manage to squeeze some time out of his hectic schedule and catch Vicky Donor. We are sure he will come out of the theatre humming Paani da rang….
