Item songs seem to have become one of the most selling aspects of commercial Bollywood films and their promotion. Be it `Munni Badnaam Hui` from `Dabangg` or `Sheila Ki Jawani` from `Tees Maar Khan` or most recently the `Kala Chashma` track of upcoming film `Baar Baar Dekho`, item tracks are aggressively promoted by film makers. While on one hand they do sell along with the film they`re frowned upon in the context of womanhood on the other. What is your opinion on Bollywood item numbers?

Personally I don`t like item numbers in Hindi movies. They look very fake and they mostly tend to be very vulgar.

The item song `Pani Wala Dance` from Indian comedy `Kuch Kuch Locha Hai` is the most admirable. Undoubtedly the music is excellent but the dance moves of Bollywood one of most appealing beauties Sunny Leone made the number most-valued hence rules most popular Indian item number list so far.

She is indeed. Another 2016 track that can be counted as the biggest hit among the item numbers is `Kala Chashma` track from Baar Baar Dekho. With Badshah`s rap, foot tapping music and Katrina`s sizzling dance makes the song a truly fun track. Don`t you guys think that item numbers today are evolving from being vulgar to some extents to being fun and foot tapping party tracks?

Yet another item number of Sunny Leone has hit the box office. Guys did you watch the Laila song of `Raees`?

Shreya, this song did not score much hit as an item number.

Personally I also do not like the item songs because most of them are of no use and it becomes the objectification of a Woman. The lyrics are vulgar which make no sense, the whole plot is totally different and unnecessarily the item songs are inserting in a movie.

Bindita, what do you think, simplicity would not attract the audience in a film?

Bindita, what do you think, simplicity would not attract the audience in a film?..


Indian audience is more into a masala or commercial genre of movies but with the time it is changing. Simplicity, less commercial movies generally do not get the huge openings like the commercial ones which I have noticed. There are so many good movies which are critically acclaimed not only in India but also in outside and those movies do not perform well in Indian cinema halls. For example Radhika Apte`s `Parched`, Bengali movie `Chatrak`, `The Japanese Wife` and these movies are hardly known to us.

Yes Bindita, you are on exact point I must say. There are numerous good movies which don`t have any item numbers but also not a box office hit.
