Javed Akthar Explains The Dumb Lyrics Of Om Shanti Om

1,309 views


Om Shanti Om, Farah Khan’s next film came out with huge hype surrounding it. There was a lot of hype surrounding, Shahrukh’s new look in the movie ( his 6 pack ab shirtless look). But when the song Dard -E -Disco promos started making rounds on the television, the song did get some criticism. I was infact shocked at the abysmal lyrics of Dard E Disco. I checked again, was Javed Akthar the man who penned these lyrics. How could Javed Akthar write such lines? Now Javed Akthar himself gives the reason for the “dumb lyrics of Om Shanti Om”.

Javed Akhtar has a good laugh and says: “You must understand every song in a film has to go with the given situation and character. The dumbing-down, as you call it, in ‘Dard-e-disco’ comes from the fact that the guy who sings it is a bit of silly goose … not exactly intellectually equipped to sprout poetry!”

The lyricist adds: “In the film-within-a-film in Om Shanti Om, it’s shown that the hero (played by Shah Rukh) insists that an absurd song be composed for him to sing and dance on stage. While writing lines I had to constantly keep reminding myself that the song wasn’t for Shah Rukh but the character that the star plays in a film within the film. “We had to constantly keep checking my poetry to make sure it didn’t sound intelligent. Every time I’d come up with a poetic image I’d be shouted down.”
