The title track has an extremely addictive sound along with Shankar Mahadevan’s lively vocals. Its other variants too are striking, particularly the techno-layered JBJ. Neeraj Sridhar and Alisha attempt a hiphop’ish tune in Ticket to hollywood, but beyond one catchy hook, the track just plods. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Mahalaxmi’s Bol na, with its […]

Chor aur chand must be one of those rare films where a plethora of incredible tunes were wasted on an utterly inane script. As many as 6 songs are worth raving about, even today. While Anuradha Paudwal was present in every song, the choice of SP Balasubramaniam was rather surprising – and he pulled it […]

Even Jaane do na’s Hindi […]

Top 7 (+2) recent listens!

Alvida & O meri jaan – Metro (Pritam, Hindi) KK literally powers Alvia and O meri jaan, while Pritam works his magic in the backgrounds. The build-up to both the songs are truly inspiring. Metro finally showcases an Indian doing very good Indi/ Hindi rock without depending on our friends from across the border, who […]

Anand Raaj Anand dishes out an utterly bland item number in Mere yaar. His other track, Unke nashe mein is marginally better, with confident orchestration. Mika does seem to have another vocation, besides his labiolingual exploits – his street-smart Ganpat is not bad at all, and his vocals work well to showcase the bhai’ish irreverence! […]

Mohit Suri, director of Awarapan, when asked about the film’s plot, says, “Its storyline is derived from a Korean film. I am not hiding it. There is a Korean film that I have seen…there’s something in the film that made me feel that I should make this film. I believe that every director needs some […]
