With SCV Channel going live for most of the day, people call in throughout the day to request songs of their choice.
Some observations from the requests. The great Sirichu Sirichu Vandhaa Seena Thaana song from Vasool Raja seems to be topping the requests. Every hour atleast it’s been asked for nearly 5 times and played thrice. Every hour. Appidi Podu from Gilli ranks second. Reema Sen’s dance number May madham song from Jay Jay is also one of the top requests.
Lessons learnt – Item numbers are people’s choice. Appidi Podu isn’t a item number in the literal sense. The other two are certainly the best examples available. This being a representation of what people ask for, you know why producers and directors are hell bent on having Item numbers on their movies. What you ask for is What you get.
On a related note, a program on Zee Music called Item bomb, seems to bring a tease club into the drawing rooms. Item Bomb is an India wide search for bombshell girls who want to dance Item Numbers in the ‘worthy’ Bollywood movies.
Being called as a reality show, they follows closely the participant girl of the show and bring on-screen their prepartion and the performances during prelim rounds. It looks like show for Peeping Toms. Reality TV is been screwed up, completely. Why wouldn’t we think of rating the TV shows. This one would be rated A++ or RR.
