Rom coms are passe. Indian audience needs more than corny love stories with tidbits of humor thrown in. There is more to fiction and drama than boy meets girl stories. Musicals are melody etched in stories through the journey of joy, happiness, redemption, melancholy, and motley of emotions. When words fall short, music does it for you, and words are not even needed, moments are created with depth that only soul understands. That is what a musical should do to you. Like Khamoshi and Aashiqui, there are only a handful of Bollywood musicals that have created magic through its stories harmonized in music.

Less than 10 Musicals in the History of Bollywood, unimpressive and ironic, given the fact that ever genre of Bollywood movies have mindless singing and dancing without the intent of making them musicals to the core. Musicals have a beautiful story that make depict emotions like poetry.
