People listen to music to find aesthetic pleasure and dance it off. But the film industry has discovered the new money making area- item songs, wherein they objectify women. The videos are inappropriate for the young audience and the lyrics are too bad if you listen to them closely. We’ve prepared a list of some most popular songs that objectify women you would’ve definitely heard:
1. Sheila Ki Jawaani
My Name Is Sheila
Sheila Ki Jawani
I’m Just Sexy For You
Main Tere Haath Na Aani
Women calling themselves sexy and making it a competition for boys as to who gets her. Which lady does that in the real world? This is impractical and inappropriate.
2. Munni Badnaam Hui
Munni badnaam hui, darling tere liye
Munni ke gaal gulabi, nain sharabi, chaal nawabi re
Le zandu balm hui, darling tere liye
The song title itself uses the word ‘Badnaam’ or infamous for someone who dances at a bar. Objectifying her features and using such lyrics is highly disgusting for intellectuals of the film industry.
3. Chikni Chameli
Bichu mere naina, badi zehreeli aankh mare
Kamsin kamariya Sali ik thumke se lakh mare
Aayi chikni chameli chup ke akeli, pawwa chada ke aayi
You see the metaphors used to describe the body parts? Bichu naina, kamsin kamariya, really? Moreover ‘pawwa chada ke aayi’, a drunkard girl who dances for men. Technology is pacing forward and our Bollywood, backward.
4. Ooh La La
Ladki tu hai
Ooh la la…
Tu hai meri fantasy..
Choo na na
Ab main jawan ho gayi..
The song very firstly starts with awkward orgasmic sounds. The entire song comprises of such lyrics which are shameful for women. No doubt it is named ‘The Dirty Picture’. Honestly painting a very dirty picture of women around the world!
5. Blue Eyes
Blue eyes hypnotize teri kardi ai mennu
I swear! chhoti dress mein bomb lagdi mennu
Glossy lips, uff yeh tricks
Baby lagdi ai killer
Oh yeah oh yeah
Katal kare tera bomb figure
This is a song typically made to describe a beautiful blonde girl but focus on the usage of words. The rap part of this song is utter bullshit where the guy is saying whatever he wishes to and the girl laughs it off.
Mumbai ki na Dilli walon ki
Pinky hai paise walon ki
This one takes it to a whole new level where the writer not just objectifies ‘Pinky’ but shows how she chooses only those with money. From body to characteristics, they’ve shown not girls, but gorgeous gold diggers.
7. Baby Doll
Ho Mere Husn De Kone
Kone Kone Di
Yeh Duniya Pittal Di
Ho Baby Doll Main Sone Di
This song goes more towards inter-women competition that how this girl is better than any other. She met aphorises herself with gold and others with copper. Class and racial discrimination, you can find it here.
8. Gandi Baat
ABCD padh li bahut
Thandi aaheein bhar li bahut
Achchi baatein kar li bahut
Ab karunga tere saath..
There’s a reason it is called ‘Gandi’ or bad because this is not something enhancing. ‘I’ll talk and do dirty to you’, is this what women are for? All thanks to the directors to portray this to the audience.
Bebo main bebo dil mera le lo, dil dene aayi le lo ji le lo
It feels like Bebo is a salesperson and the heart is some product. Anyone, please take it? They’ve made love, a crucial feeling an objectifying object as well. The video is only for the adult audience.
10. Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast
Tera husn hi jabardast dast
Tu cheez badi hai mast mast
Calling a girl a thing? Needs any more justification? They’re not objectifying this time, they’ve made an object out of women. I’m glad how this industry is reaching heights with this crap.
