What do you think of Rahman's Commonwealth Games theme song?

What do you think of Rahman's CWG theme song?

A R Rahman recently released the Commonwealth Games theme song.

The maestro has in the past given us incredible tunes but his latest offering failed to impress the CWG organising committee's executive board member V K Malhotra, who feels the composition has 'fallen short of expectations'. 

Oh yaaro, yeh India bula liya, which was launched amid much fanfare by the Oscar-winning composer has been given a thumbs down by Malhotra, who has suggested that the song be reworked.

"This song has fallen short of expectations. We had a expected a better anthem for the Games from a composer of Rahman's status," Malhotra, also the vice-president of the Indian Olympic Association, told PTI.

"He has given some very good songs like Maa Tujhe Salaam but this song is not that impressive. We hope that the song is made better because there is still some time for the Games," he added.

While it remains to be seen how Rahman reacts to this, we leave it to you, our dear readers, to decide if the request is justified.
