Realism is a far cry in new age Bollywood, says veteran lyricist-scriptwriter Javed Akhtar, who feels the depiction of the common man in today's films is misleading and the quality of songs has deteriorated. "Where's realism in today's films? Maybe yesteryear films were more dramatic in treatment, but they had more realism. They had a common man's depiction the way the common man was," Akhtar says.
