Both can happen na ? Most llieky Balki did research a medical condition just so he could pull off a casting coup, BigB as LittleB's son. It also incidentally turned out to be a wellmade film.The problem with the Balki's of the world is that they are bent upon taking uniquely southie music & reinventing them for the north. With ARR, you don't have that problem because his compositions are different for a hindi movie eg RDB. But Raaja is a hardcore southie, his tunes and their range suits southie style lyrics. Attaching hindi words to them is just not right. You get garbage like udi udi mudi mudi etc. Balu made the same mistake with Sadma. Surmayi Akhiyon Main cannot hold a candle to Kanna Kalaimaane since the intent, melody and meaning are all sacrificed just to come up with hindi lyrics to fit a well-known southern tune. There's prolly a list somewhere of incredibly good songs that have become an embarrassment after undergoing this translation torture. And the Balki's of the world want to add to that list.
