After 2nd Mumbai Shorts International Film Festival and Hollywood Shorts Reel-14, Aawaz wins two awards at the Noida International Film Festival - Best Music and Best Music Video.

The music video and the song aim to sensitize people of various social evils like sexual violence, child abuse and marital rape. The core idea behind the song is to encourage people to speak up and not hush up matters like this.

Copied songs of Bollywood - music piracy?

There are hundreds of songs in Bollywood which are directly copied, adopted or inspired from other songs. Some of these songs saw huge success in the Bollywood film industry. What I don't understand is, where we have certain music directors who have been engaged in making their own music and mark, how can another bunch think of coping the tunes of some other songs and present as their own work? Well, below are few very famous Hindi film songs which got the popularity among Indian people, but actually were adopted or copied from works by other musicians and music directors.

Will be adding more songs to the list in future.
