after reading this article i came to knw he has given so much gud music in bwood. also was used to read in media that rahman is original. this also got clarified that he is copying from old songs.. pathetic.. very few musicians are there in world who are original.
some one called him lengendry bappi-oh my goosh! such a copy cat which later was 'awarded' to annnnnnnnnnu malik. sharabi was good but all knows who has done that. and they gave him the padma!!! no suprises when saif ali got the national award for some stupid film!!!! goosh hw long this northies will give money and get the awards??? sorry Dilip/Amithab saab you guys are excluded.

TRUE, HOW DO THEY DEFINE A GRADE AND B GRADE. MAWALI AND JUSTICE CHOUDHARY HAD A GRADE STAR CAST. MAWALI HAD SRIDEVI , JAYA PRADA AND JEETENDRA, JUSTICE CHOUDHARY HAD JEETENDRA, SRIDEVI, MOUSMI, HEMA MALINI. PRODUCTION HOUSE WAS GOOD, MUSIC WAS GOOD,EVERYTHING WAS GOOD ABOUT THE MOVIE, THAT WAS THE WAY MOVIES WERE MADE THEN , THOUGH THEY WERE NOT CLASSICS BUT STILL MANAGED TO EARN MONEY AND GET THE CAREER STARTED FOR ACTORS LIKE SRIDEVI.

Could not agree more. Esp...That was the way movies were made those days and managed to entertain people as all these movies were BO successes. How can you call a movies starring Jeetendra, Hema Malini and SRIDEVI a B Grade?? All the 3 actors are definitely among the most successful actors in the history of Bollywood.

First the title itself is nonsence. Why should I know Alam Ara. It was for my grand father. Same is the case for DD.
all his songs are direct/shameless copies from existing disco tunes of that time. He is an embrassment to the country. Disco dancer is a pathetic movie, shame that a good actor like mithun is associated with these movies.
"Also, 'Jai ho.' I did 'Ramba ho' in 1985. Rahman combined three of my songs and got Best Original Score. The 'Ho' came from me. Who brought it? Bappi Lahiri brought the ho to Bollywood." All we can see here is the 'I-am-kinda-big-deal' attitude of Bappi.. His famous number 'Zooby Zooby' is a direct lift of song 'Brother Louie' by German band 'Modern Talking'... He's jealous of Rahman and that has made him blind.
