Pray For Me Brother (A R Rahman, Blaaze)

Posted by Karthik

Judging by its intentions, PFMB would be way up there. Musically, Rahman treads a beaten path with a pop’ish sound wrapped in R&B influences. The tune is addictive enough and those desi tweaks are indeed charming. The video, despite the promise Bharatbala displayed in Vande Mataram and Hari Om, is a bit abstract, with gimmicky B&W montage and misses the crux of the song, almost always. The album’s packaging is top-notch with it representing the coming-of-age for the ‘singles’ concept in India. And yes, Rahman could go easy on the oh-so-90s Jackson imitation and get himself a much-needed costume makeover!
