Couple of bad judgements botch up the musical section of Screen Awards

Star-Screen-Awards-2010-NominationsThe Star Screen Awards unfolded today with some unpleasant surprises, atleast in some of the music categories

The best Music Director Award went to A R Rahman for Delhi 6, a clear and distinctive winner by far, considering that Amit Trivedi for Dev D, which could have compared to Delhi 6 was not even nominated. However, Delhi 6 clearly deserved to win in 2009, with its wonderful lineup.

Kavitha Seth won the best Female Play back Singer for Iktara from Wake Up Sid, an amazing composition by Amit Trivedi, who won the best Back ground Score for Dev D, both  deserving winners.

Rahat  Fateh Ali Khan won the best Male Playback Singer for  Aaj Din Chaddeya from Love Aaj Kal, which was surprising. Neither was the song a winner nor was the rendition outstanding, notwithstanding Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s superior capabilities.

The best Lyricist award was another surprise. To start with, Gulzar was not even nominated for this award, for his work in Kaminey. Further, Irshad Kamil For Chor Bazari ( Love Aaj Kal), definitely did not deserve to win over the impactful lyrics by Piyush Mishra for Gulaal; Disappointing to say the least.
