This topic comes from my previous one about SaReGaMa. Personally after watching Himesh talk down to Vishal, I realized the music side of bollywood really lacks gentlemen. For instance, take the 2 other music directors form the same show - Bappi Lahiri and Ismail Darbar. If you don't know, Ismail Darbar is one of my very favourite music directors. In fact, he falls right after the first - AR Rahman. I can't call AR Rahman and Ismail Darbar old school but really people like these 2 are what the bollywood music lacks. Himesh Reshammiya is surely a huge hit and has a good talent. Many in fact believe he maybe as talented as Ismail Darbar or even better. I, strongly disagree. Himesh Reshammiya is just another music director with a few hits. How long has he been around? Not long enough to be compared to any of the real directors. I never was a Himesh Reshammiya fan but I did always respect the fact that he was such a huge hit. Sadly my knowledge with names was never good hence I can't compare him to someone else. He is good, but not good enough to think he has the most fans as a music director. Don't get me wrong, but the way he talks on SaReGaMaPa Challenge - he does try to put the fact out that he has fans and quiet a few actually. You would never see Ismail Darbar talk to his fans, do you know how many fans does he actually have? People like me would throw over Himesh any day for Ismail Darbar or Bappi Lahiri. Next on my hit list is Vishal and Shekhar. They are good, but they aren't much different than Himesh. They have only brought so much hits to the field. Himesh too has only brough so much hits, everything that ever went flop is never spoken about. Never the less, the came up with "Allah Ke Bande" and for that they must be respected for ever (even though you could consider it a lucky one). Anu Malik. I personally like to think he has a lucky charm which he accidently stumbles upon once in a while. I mean, a person that came up with "sande se aate hain" came up with soo many flops? He is good, in fact great but how does one go around agreeing to send music out like Fareb (the one movie I started considering Anu Malik as a lucker). India has so much talent yet the Idol sings so bad? I mean, Aneek from SaReGaMa would roll Prashant any day. In fact any of the top 6 contestant cant take out any one from top 13 Indian Idol or even the previous Indian Idol, Sandeep. I will give Abhijeet Sawant a good hand because he seems to be working on his skills. All in all, the music side of Bollywood has only become to hit today, forgotten tomorrow. How many of you still listen to Aap Ka Suroor? Not many, how many would happily listen to songs from Rang De Basanti? When it comes to fast music, how many would prefer 36 China Town over Bas ek Pal (music by: Vivek Phillip and Amitabh Verma -- yeah they did better than Himesh)?
