Bollywood continues to churn out R.D. Burman tributes

By Subhash K. Jha, Indo-Asian News Service

Mumbai, Aug 10 (IANS) Eight years after his death R.D. Burman continues to inspire Bollywood, with two forthcoming films claiming to be authentic tributes to the legendary music composer.

There are striking similarities between Anant Mahadevan's "Dil Vil Pyar Vyar", which opens early September, and Sujoy Ghosh's "Jhankar Beats", slated for release a little later.

Both of them are directed by newcomers and were conceptualised as tributes to Burman.

But while Mahadevan's film tells its tale by interweaving Burman songs into a three-tiered story, Ghosh's film has opted for an original music score, by Vijay Shekhar, with some of Burman's music.
