Charge against Rahman

Charge against RahmanVeteran theatre personality Girish Karnad who is in the news in recent weeks for his open opinion about V S Naipaul and Rabindranath Tagore, added A R Rahman recently. Karnad opined

that "his music is overpowering that listeners miss the beauty of the lyrics". Also in tune with the flavour of the season against free speech, there is a huge uproar amongst the Oscar Winner’s fans. Karnad is seen taking a big hit in the social networking world. Amidst the chaos, Karnad’s praise for Rahman is probably lost, Karnad had also said that, Rahman's music is beautiful but so overpowering.

"Rahman is a great musician, his orchestration is beautiful and overpowering, as a result of which one misses the beauty of lyrics that once defined songs in Bollywood,"

Here is what is setting Twitter abuzz:

“Any comment by Girish Karnad on Rajnikanth yet?”

"Tendulkar should retire"- Girish Karnad.

“How is Girish Karnad walking ?? Considering both his feet are firmly planted in his mouth ??”
