Hello Everyone
We were recently talking about the movie, dasara bullodu, which was made
quite late in terms of G's career.  I think, from this movie and from Prem
Nagar, which was also released around the same point, how the quality of
songs, in my opinion at least, declined a bit.  Somehow, I always thought
that these two movies, although popular, and with rather enjoyable songs,
symbolized the decline in writing and language that came with the 1970's.
I think the trend has now hit, in the 1990's, an all time low, but movies
from that time period, the 1970's all demonstrated a lack of the high
quality of words.  By this I mean, that previously, the music was made of
elegantly crafted telugu poetry, while the later music was written in very
average, everyday words.  I don't know if anyone else has been so bothered
by this as me, but debate on this topic is rather important because it
sort of expressed different eras of G's music.  	Sridhar
