In this thread I have looked at the past 6-7 decades to classify guitar songs using genres. Please comment if I have missed any obvious songs
#Bollywood #guitar @p1j @MusicAloud @Taubashikkan @taparam @Bollywoodirect @hims_negi @parikhm
ROCKNROLL – Original rock n roll had “brass and piano” sound to a dance beat ,guitar got introduced later evolving to “classic rock”. Hindi rock n roll songs mostly used brass, piano and snare drums; some of the epic songs where guitar are used are presented here .
GUITAR ARPEGGIOS are sequential notes played on different strings of a guitar like a harp . they provide rhythm / melody for the rest of the song although they don’t get enough credit for it ! The first time a bass guitar was used in one of the RDB songs in this medley.

As Sardar Patel said in Kolkata 1949,“till yesterday you wanted Pakistan,voted for it and now you claim to love india, how do I believe you?”
The so called patriots from #Bollywood have lot to answer actually for the sins of their father, grandfather or great grandfathers.
We can start with Kaifi Azmi,father of Shabana Azmi. He wrote poems celebrating the creation of Pakistan. Kaifi Azmi was a proponent of partition and wrote a poem just before Partition"अगली ईद पाकिस्तान में" (Next Eid in Pakistan).What a pity,went & came back within few days.
Stayed here & now his children give us gyan on how much their parents loved india.
IPTA (Indian People's Theatre Association) was & remains the cultural front of Communist Party . Check Shabana Azmi & she is an active proponent of IPTA.
It was under the communist ideology

Love when Delhi journos do this romanticism of #Mumbai in the Congress mouthpiece.
So here is my two paise take (I'm born and brought up in this city):
Mumbai is dead long ago. We are choked. The blame should be on 'secular' Sena. They have ruled us for 35 years and messed it up.
#Bollywood is just one industry based in #Mumbai. It is under attack on the war on drugs. But truthfully, it is dishing out shit for years. The war is that people don't want to see this shit despite the opening of multiplexes. That's the war Bollywood has to win. Will they?
The magnetic appeal of #Mumbai was - connectivity, opportunity and work culture. Our infra is choked, projects are blocked, real estate is expensive and other states have better opportunities. So the millennials are moving out. Who is giving permissions for high rises in slums?

They defy science.
They defy gravity.
They make insane movies.
They are larger than life.
Their movies are ridiculed for their action and stunts.
Most of their stars don't work in Hindi movies and they are least bothered about it.
Many people in central and northern India don't like their movies.


I like their movies. And more than the movies, I like the fact that they are not at all apologetic about their religious beliefs. They strongly and aggressively practice the religion.
They are not ashamed of telling the world that they are Hindus. They wear it on their sleeves. This is what I like about #tollywood the most.

In the trailer of ‘The Family Man 2,’ the antagonist Raji’s, played by Samantha Akkineni, uniform matches that of LTTE, which haven't sat right with many who started trending the hashtag #FamilyMan2_against_Tamils on Twitter. #FamilyMan2_against_Tamils… Image
Some viewers noticed that in the recently-released trailer, Raji’s uniform resembles that of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a Tamil militant organization. The trailer also mentions an "unexpected coalition" between the "ISI and rebels" worsening things for the show. Image
Alleging that Tamils were being shown as "thugs," many Twitter users announced that they will be unsubscribing Amazon Prime. Moreover, assuming that the rebels depicted are from LTTE as Akkineni plays a Sri Lankan Tamilian, many Twitter users came to defend the organization. Image

1/1 Meanwhile film maker Subhash Jha said that he was keen to work with Rhea Chakravorthy, “ She is pretty and talented, I don’t mind working with her even if she is out on bail.
1/2 If Sanjay Dutt could be so busy during his bail phase why cant this girl work? She and her family have gone through a lot. All the pain would make her a better actress than she was a year ago.
1/3 Certainly Mr Jha, I agree because when Sunjay Dutt acted there was no social media and hence the awareness factor was nil. If it was today he would have been a pauper..

@KirenRijiju @narendramodi @smritiirani @SmritiIraniOffc The day the Ministry for women and child concentrates on getting rid of #WomenNChildTrafficking I will say this work is being accomplished. As of now #SushantMurder has exposed #Bollywood people in the crime, politicians cannot befriend them and speak about #BetiBachao! 1/1
@KirenRijiju @narendramodi @smritiirani @SmritiIraniOffc 1/2 this is the second term of #NamoGov, public is aware of who are the people involved in these crimes. Sushants probe points to politicians and bollywood people in #Trafficking and standing with those who do it!
