Bollywood director Raja Krishna Menon used the remake of poet Nazrul Islam’s famous song ‘Karar Oi Louh Kapat’ in the movie ‘Pippa’. The song has been recreated by popular Indian music director AR Rahman.
But after the release of the song, this music star has come under controversy. The listeners are complaining that the melody of the song has been distorted. Netizens expressed their anger on AR Rahman.
Now the remake version of this song has been called for boycott by various social and cultural organizations of Bengali expatriates in Canada.
Shantanu Vanik, a community figure in Calgary, Canada, said, “Language, music, art work can never be blocked by any rules, no one could!” Because doing that is wrong.
We can be angry at AR Rahman’s failed attempt, we can give two insults, but at the end of the day, we can never discipline his artistic practice… because the poet is still the land of mind, Ram’s birthplace… Good effort will survive, bad effort will be lost. .. Tomorrow will decide which will survive and which will not.
He also said that this was an ill-conceived attempt, it will be a symbol of utter failure, negligence and ignorance in his lifetime golden career, that is enough.
Columnist development researcher and sociological analyst. Mahmud Hasan said, the song is related to issues like the independence of Bangladesh, which makes us bow our heads to our great revolutionaries. This is not expected from an artist like AR Rahman.
Also, various artists and organizations living in Canada have strongly protested the remake version of the song.
