In summary, a decade where music was just average …No real stand out film in terms of music, that will be remembered by all for many years. No music director or lyricist seemed to own the decade. But in singing , Arijit Singh and Shreya Ghosal are way ahead of others.Among the stars who debuted Alia Bhatt in females has made a big impact. Same cannot be said in males. Ayushmann and Ranveer’s recent run of hits keeps them ahead. The quality of movies being made has certainly improved , But the importance of music in movies has gone down considerably.
