An earful of molten lead

Heard the song "Rangu Rangamma" in the recently released film Bheema. Wasn't there anyone at the recording studio who couldn't point out that Kailash Kher's rendition of lyrics was murderous? There was little style (leave alone sufi style). But the substitution of meaning thanks to the singer's oblivious pronunciation !! ('Igniting desire' became 'Igniting best wishes')

If Harris Jeyaraj couldn't realise these as a music director, he deserves a spoonful of molten lead in each of his ears. Just the same fate he subjected his listeners to.
