Do you remember 02 good songs to come out of Bombay based Hindi Music Industry in the last 5-10 years?

Something that you have gone back to and listened on loop!

Very hard to find some. Lets look at this decline where Bollywood songs no longer have a shelf life.
I am not going to give a brief here on Bollywood music, but it can be roughly categorized as following:

1950s/1960s: Semi Classical
1970s: Era of Pancham and R&R
1980s: Complete Crass Content
1990s: Neo Classical Revival
2000s: Remixes and fusion
2010s: Hooks & Taglines

Watched ~40 min of another #Bollywood antiHindu Masterpiece, starred by @SrBachchan. That girl (@iamRashmika who seem to be super modern) is dating a Muslim (obviously shown as innocent) comes home after mom (@Neenagupta001) death & LITERALLY HATES everything about Hindu rituals.
I cannot understand what kind of poisons did the foreign invaders & Marxists feed the Hindu people? Have we ever seen such kind of movies/documentaries about some other religions? The freedom Hindus were given, the ability to question, debate, discuss had been completely MISUSED?
Deep hatred of Hindu religion, traditions, rituals, culture are ingrained in every institution...HOW the hell did we reach this point? How did we put the Bollywood people in pedestal of "icons", "heroes", "celebrities" who spewed venom against Hindutva(ism) & continue to do so?

#November26 or the 26/11 will always be a date that I wouldn't forget. I did not experience the terror attack but my extended family did. In fact that family broke!

It was my father's maama living in #Mumbai , he lost his life in the blast that ripped through the train
..and I saw the family suffer quite a lot post that, selling their only property, eldest son & daughter in law passing away and my father's maami having no place to go but to an old age home!
I'm sure many families would've gone through worser times post the #MumbaiTerrorAttack
What hit me hard was the absolute lack of will to exact revenge by the Central Govt of the day! - BTW I was apolitical at that time

What hit me harder was the Hindu terror angle trope that Congress played and #Bollywood supporting it!

Bhawanrao 'Balasaheb' Pantpratinidhi (1868-1951) who ruled Aundh in #Maharashtra was an unusual king. His work at reforming criminals & convicts inspired V.Shantaram's acclaimed ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957). Balasaheb was born on 24 October 1868
#history #Marathi #films #art
Unlike rulers who tried to cling to power even when the end of British rule was evident, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi handed over the reins of the state to the people much earlier in an experiment inspired by #MahatmaGandhi. He also helped freedom fighters & revolutionaries.
In a sense, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi was among the reformist kings who tried to birth welfare states in colonial India. He was also associated with one of the most popular forms of exercises—the suryanamaskars.

#Brahmastra wipes out over ₹800 crore wealth of PVR and Inox #investors

businessinsider.in/stock-market/n…

By @jainrounak
Forget making back money, it looks like Brahmastra is taking down PVR & Inox investors with itself. With early reviews pouring cold water on #Brahmastra’s prospects, India’s largest theater chains PVR & Inox have cumulatively lost over ₹800 crore in market capitalization today.
In Indian mythology, #Brahmastra is known as a weapon of unstoppable destruction, which can only be stopped by its counterattack astra (weapon). Ironically, the movie could end up being a victim of the weapon it is named after.

#Mumbai #India #Bollywood Mumbai is a really cool, hip city that's India's most populous but richest.

रिमेकचं भूत
जेव्हा मी लहान होतो, तेव्हा आमिर खानचा 'गजनी', सलमानचा 'वॉन्टेड' आणि अक्षय कुमारचा 'रावडी राठोड' आला होता. त्या काळात रिमेक म्हणजे काय हे कितीतरी लोकांच्या गावी नव्हतं. त्यामुळे सीन टू सीन कॉपी केलेला चित्रपट आम्ही
बघायचो आणि अचंबित व्हायचो. त्या चित्रपटांनी जवळपास 100 करोड गल्ला जमवला. ही झाली 2011-12 पर्यंतची गोष्ट. नंतरसुद्धा हॉलिडे सारखे चित्रपट रिमेक होऊन येतच होते. हिटसुद्धा व्हायचे.
गोष्ट अशी झाली,की त्यानंतर भारतात OTT ने जम बसवला. Youtube तर होतंच. डब मूवी च्या
नावाखाली जिथे सेट मॅक्स वर नागार्जुनचा 'मेरी जंग: One Man Army', 'Don No. 1' यासारखे मोजके चित्रपट बघायला मिळायचे, त्या जागी आता बरेच मूळ चित्रपट,मग ते दाक्षिणात्य असोत किंवा जगभरातील कोणतेही चित्रपट उपलब्ध होऊ लागले. माझ्या मते शेवटचा सुपरहिट ठरलेला रिमेक 'Simba' आहे.

From #BoycottLalSinghChadha to #BoycottBrahmastra, every time a #Bollywood movie is announced, Twitter goes abuzz with the boycott trends.

Here are some things, that we should be thinking of boycotting instead of #BoycottBollywood

timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/spo…
1. Smoking

This is one habit that has absolutely no positive effect of any kind on anyone.

Why are we not protesting against it rather than boycotting a work of art and creativity - our movies!
2. Rape

It is the most violent thing you can do to a human being - physically and mentally.

Why are we still tolerant towards this evil?

THREAD on #AamirKhan and #Bollywood - In the last few years, there has been a sudden explosion of Bollywood actors/actresses taking political stances, specifically against @narendramodi and #hinduism - Lets look. (1) is the support they are receiving from those countries. /#1
(2) Secret Superstar & Dangal - Aamir Khan as a producer - garnered 60% earned by the top 10 grossers in China. #aamirkhan and @ayushmannk have benefitted most. Andhadhun’s Chinese earnings were close to 5 times the earnings from the rest of the planet, including India! /#2
@ayushmannk became politically vocal right after Andhadhun - Supported #CAA when condoned violence by tepid response - it was an insurrection as like #CapitolRiots which he and others called "protests". Andhadhun's 75% of its total global collections were ONLY from China! /#3

Gauri Khan says #Bollywood glamour becomes a baggage for business #women like her

@gaurikhan @bonitodesigns

businessinsider.in/business/news/…

By @Bhaktimakwana18
Starting a business is never easy, more so for women. It is hard to find validation and convince people that you mean business.

Movie producer turned interior designer #GauriKhan, who ventured into creating luxurious spaces has not had it easy with her brand Gauri Khan Designs.
In conversation with @BiIndia, #GauriKhan says it is difficult for people to have real faith in you. “There will be a lot of people especially in my field, when they will have faith in you it is because you are married to so & so but on the other hand it's a drawback.” said Khan.

GUITAR IN BOLLYWOOD (1/7)
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

(1/5)80 के दशक में रामायण धारावाहिक को घर-घर तक पहुंचाने वाले रामानंद सागर का जन्म 29 दिसंबर 1917 को ब्रिटिश इंडिया के पंजाब में हुआ था। अब यह जगह पाकिस्तान के लाहौर में है। रामानंद सागर के बचपन का नाम चंद्रमौली चोपड़ा था। रामानंद को उनकी नानी ने पाला और

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?
