WHEN COMPARED TO THE 60S AND 70S, DO YOU THINK THE ART OF LYRICISM IN BOLLYWOOD TODAY HAS LOST ITS POETRY?

Dipa Motwane Not while Gulzar Saab & Javed Sir are still around. Love Amitabh Bhattacharya's lyrics. Cant ignore Irshad Kamil. And young blood like Devanshu & Santanu (loved their poetry in Udaan) & Varun Grover also deserve mention

Rohwit I won't go as far as saying that lyricism is dead. There is just so much noise that good work gets lost amidst a lot of noise. Even then, there is a crop of good writers/poets/bakchods :) who are just not going to give up easily. More power to them and to those who support them :)

Aditya Nair It sure as hell has lost its poetic essence, lyrics back then could stand alone as poems without the music but I don't see the same with lyrics of latter day. I can't comment on Bollywood much as I hail from the south but the lyrics here have changed similarly. Though the lyrics of adage used to take a moral and preachy tone they were poetic and could move you with mere words but today they seem more like abstract sentences floating amongst the music that accompany them.

Himanshu No! I would say now we have variety. Today we have lyrical music as well as modern trendy tapori type ear catchers. variety is good. Lyrical new Naa udne ki iss dafaa thaani Parindo ne bhi wafaa jaani lyrical old Zindagi tere gam ne hamein Rishtey naye samjahye Miley jo hamein dhoop mein miley Sham ke thadey saaye
