While some may attribute the success of the growing trend of recreating old classics to nostalgia, composers have pointed towards an inept music industry. Bappi Lahiri too believes those in the field of music need to up their skills. "Today's songs are like one-day cricket matches. They release, gain popularity, but soon slip from people's minds," he says. The veteran singer points out to the lyricists of Bollywood for the declining longevity of songs.

"The wordings of today's songs might be meaningful, but they lack the catching power... The music that we get to listen today - singers like Arijit Singh, Ankit Tiwari, KK or Shaan — they all have their own unique styles and are singing beautifully, but they [the songs] miss out on wordings," he says.
