The last two weeks of December are usually relatively busy weeks for me. I say “relatively” only in the context of the rest of the year for me, which is reasonably relaxed. My generally lazy nature gets a thorough jolt and wake-up call, in these last two weeks.

Digging for songs by the so called second rung music directors is the same as wading through unheard and lost melodies from films that are now obscure, and even more rare than the songs themselves. One can just imagine – the time that these movies would have been created and released. Whatever the film, the team that creates it always has a motivation for enthusiasm – whether that motivation be money, or fame, or simply the love of the art. The team knows that it does not have the (so called) best of players or directors or writers or composers. And yet, I am sure, as the film is being created, as the songs get written, and as the music gets composed, there would be a keen eagerness in the minds of the team members, that they have a winner this time. The songs, the story line, the music, the acting, all seems very great to the folks who are doing those things. And the release and distribution is planned, posters are printed, and then displayed for generating public interest. The film comes to the cinema hall, some people do surely go and see it. If the star attraction is more, and the hype about the film is great, then a large, very large number of people will go and see it. And at times, the music is so catchy that it becomes the talk of the streets.
