Your review sucks!

Started this morning by staring at 2 similar comments from the same person – one on my take on Villu and the other on Aarya 2. Both simply said, “this album is nominated in filmfare awards………your review sucks….”. Quick update, if that hasn’t been made clear in the past 5 years: This blog is not […]

A R Rahman recently composed theme songs for 2 states – the first was for Gujarat, scored for Gujarat’s Golden Jubilee celebrations and the second was the theme song composed for World Classical Tamil Conference. Now, what would be the shelf life of such songs, composed for specific occasions? In case of Bharatbala’s Vande Mataram […]

The case of the missing New Year!

Shyam Benegal’s latest film, Well Done Abba featured a preposterous plot point for a valid reason – a well (well, it is indeed a well!) goes missing! Tamil comedian Vadivelu featured this plot in one of his many comic pieces too, earlier, to incredibly funny results. If you think that is bizarre, how about a […]

I love Indian Film Music!

Ever since I remember, I’ve always been fascinated by film music. Having lived in many Indian states (my Dad was a banker; meaning, a transfer every 4/5 years!), I’ve acquired a taste for listening to film songs in any Indian language – regardless of whether I understand the lyrics or not. My interest in Western […]

Kambakkht Ishq Vs Pammal K Sambandam

Forget the fact that Kambakkht Ishq is a dud of a film. What irks me the most is when director Sabbir Khan says, ‘KI was an original idea’. It goes like this, in Times of India, today, “Yes, we are aware that there are influences from Pammal…. KI was scripted after a lot of trial […]

The lack of Connections

Just realized – quite surprisingly, very late – that the post in my other blog (Beast of Traal) is very appropriate for Milliblog. It’s about A R Rahman’s new compilation album released by Universal Music, called Connections. No, this is not THE Nokia Connections album and that is exactly what this post is all about. […]

Tochi Vs Toshi!

Singer Tochi today made headlines with the news of him undergoing treatment for depression and high blood pressure at the Bombay Hospital. According to news reports (DNA and Times of India), he has lost ‘a lot of’ lucrative performance opportunities because a website (BollywoodHungama) mentioned his name as ‘Toshi’ (the Star Voice of India/ SaReGaMaPa […]

Re-ranting about Aadesh Shrivastava

<!–adsense–> I’m outraged at Aadesh Shrivastava brainlessly expressing his outrage at Bachchan’s portrayal in Slumdog Millionaire. So, here’s a quote-to-quote response, besides those incredible comments he’s been getting in the page linked above! “How dare you degrade our national icon Amitabh Bachchan?” Meaning: “I need to say these things about the B so that I […]

Milliblog goes to Twitter!

Long after the world jumped into Twitter bandwagon, here’s me diving into it too…presenting Milliblog’s Short-takes, via Twitter. No, I’m not twittering about earth shatteringly important updates on the economy/ environment – this is Milliblog-specific…a lot of music and a bit of movies! Have added a Twitter widget too, to showcase the updates – in […]

Taran’s digs on Naachgaana, hastey hastey!

Taran Adarsh’s review of the film, Hastey hastey takes his personal animosity towards Naachgaana founder Rohit Karan Batra to new heights when he writes in the second sentence of his review, “The story idea, credited to one Rohit Batra, is so tacky, so banal, so obsolete, so lifeless that you break into a big yawn […]
