Our GD team also was of the view that,such movies fail to create an impact as they should,in terms of opening and subsequently being remembered,like old (suspense, thrillers) classics WOH KAUN THE, MADHUMATI, MAHAL, JEWEL THIEF etc etc , is because the makers smartly added chart buster songs which also carried the story forward. Some so called self proclaimed guardians of cinema might crib why songs? , well y not in end it’s commercial cinema and when you have the tools to utilise it for maximum benefit then so be it.
