Krazzy4 music and Ram Sampath

We should all thank Ram Sampath for bringing this shameless plagiarism in Bollywood to some justice. Next time, Anu Maliks and Pritams of the big bad world of Bollywood will think twice before copying (Hey Pritam, you better watch out. Ram S just took money, once Koreans come after you with their Kung Fu wrath, you’ll be royally screwed).

First of all, I don’t know why does even Rajesh Roshan appear in the list of current list of Bollywood music directors! He doesn’t belong to this century, he is still stuck in 70’s. His compositions suck, his instrumentation is even worse. Anyone who thinks the music of Krrish well-suited the movie, probably doesn’t have a clue about music. Krrish is a modern superheroe movie and the music should have been produced with a studio full of electronic gadgets. And any idea who is the king of electronica in Bollywood? None other than very less known and outlandishly creative Ram Sampath.

Heard of Colourblind? Its one heck of a progressive electronic rock album produced in India. Here are a few songs. Composed and produced by Ram Sampath (and Siddharth Achrekar).

(Listen to that song on a good sound system, please).

You can download a good quality of music video for your iPod from Sid’s site as well as mp3s of all the songs from this awesome album.

I wish Roshans improve their taste of music a bit, and open up little bit beyond their khandani music director Chacha Roshan. (While I admit Chachu Roshan created some fine music in 70’s, but that was > 30 yrs ago).

My sincere request to Papa Roshan – the next sci-fi movie you make, please take Ram Sampath as the music director. He will rock, and trust me, your 2 crore investment will pay back! I have heard Tanha Dil (sung by Shaan, music by Ram S) some few thousand times by now, and it still one of my favs.

Desi music directors take this plagiarism as granted. To some extent I feel, they want to copy something and make it a public controversy. Its free publicity, so why not? While its okay to create a cover version of music produced elsewhere (in Pritam’s case, as remote as some tv soap in South Korea) and turn them to very popular music, what’s wrong in giving credit to the original composer? Its done all over the world, and the artists didn’t become smaller by doing so. I am glad Ram S has the guts to drag the Roshans to the court, and hope this sends a warning to Maliks and Chakrabortys alike. Bappi Lahiri did it during his time, but noone had an inkling. Thanks to itwofs reporting, its all out there.

Now Roshans (meaning Papa and Beta Roshans) are coming out in public saying Ram S strangulated us few days before the movie (Krazzy4) release, but where is the real culprit? Where is Chacha Roshan? Why is he keeping such a silence? Or is he ashamed of coming out? Long live original music, long live Ram Sampath, I hope some day Beta Roshan will be dancing to the tunes of Ram Sampath some day! And here’s one more from Colourblind before I sign off.

  1. Yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee
    Thnx a lot bro for this Blog….
    Ram Sampath is an amazing Musician,Songwriter, Arranger and a Producer…Apart from Creating and Producing Countless Jingles…he has given Singer Shaan a Big Break by Making TANHA DIL…How many people know that “Tanha Dil” was Ram’s work…”Aisa Jadoo Dala Re” from Khakee…I dont think anybody has made an Item Song like this..
    And he and Siddharth ahd already made an English album titled “Colourblind” 10 yrs ago n it’s great job…..

    And whoever says he did it for his own Publicity…Go Piss Off !!
    He has shown courage and believed in his principle and didnt succumb to the Pressures of the Probable Fallout in the Industry …

    Yes THERE SHOULD BE A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT FILED AGAINST BAPPI LAHIRI, ANU MALIK, PRITAM AND ALL THE CHOR MUSIC DIRECTORS WHO LIVES TRAVELS IN BMW’S AND MERCEDES..LIVES IN VILLAS>>>
    SAB CHORI KAR KAR KE…

    DUNNO IF THEY GET SLEEP IN THE NIGHT…WELL DO THEY CARE WHEN THEY HAVE CRORES IN THE BANKS……..ASSHOLES

  2. I dont understand why people are making such a big issue of the krazzy 4 song!!
    Wish copyrights were more strong and clear in India..
    most of the times the producers of the films are stuck upon a good song and the music derector has no say than to replicate the songs in indian version, the music director’s name gets spoiled as the producer is not keen to part with the big money that he needed to shell out to buy copyrights . I think music directors like Pritam has the ability to give life to even a not so catchy song.. Hence Pritam should not work on the terms of producers and put pressure on them to buy copyrights first and give credits to original composers – AS HE DID FOR “Kamran – Jannat”, “Bheegi Bheegi- Ganster”, “jaane kyu – Bhram” etc.
    Still there are too many loopholes in the copyrights clauses in India, I have seen critics pointing out to Pritam even for these songs where he s bought proper rights and given due credits to the original composers ..
    Wish there were sanctity and clarity on these terms and conditions..
