LETS TALK FILMS The musical film industry is the prime contributor of what constitutes popular musical culture in India. What goes into creating the sounds that move hundreds of millions of consumers? What is the purpose of these songs? Who drives their creation and how do they in turn drive a large part of the music industry? How do we see the role of Bollywood music evolving over the next five years? What changes do we see coming in? There was a time when every film was released with six songs or more but now remixes of one or two songs have become de rigeur with every soundtrack. How is this going to impact the way Bollywood and the music business function?

What is the way forward for this important phalanx of the Indian musical ecosystem?
