Joker Music Review

Written by on August 8th, 2012

GV Prakash Kumar makes his Bollywood debut dragging some heavy baggage along with him: he’s the nephew of the universally esteemed maestro, A.R. Rahman. Inevitably, his work is going to be judged (fairly or unfairly) as to how well it stacks up against his famous uncle’s. Joker isn’t a perfect soundtrack: it comes along with […]

Bol Bachchan Music Review

Written by on June 9th, 2012

Yes it’s a Himesh Reshammiya soundtrack – and he’s back to turning his hand at composing, something he usually does very well. With a mere four tracks (and four remixes) the Bol Bachchan soundtrack is very brief. But is it any good? The title track Bol Bachchan opens with some nonsensical dialogue, very reminiscent of […]

Aazaan Music Review

Written by on September 26th, 2011

Aazaan is an upcoming thriller based around biological warfare, starring newcomers Sachiin Joshi and Candice Boucher in what has already been labelled the most expensive Bollywood film ever made.

Damadamm Music Review

Written by on September 20th, 2011

Himesh Reshammiya has a tendency to divide listeners into the love him or hate him camp with that distinctive voice of his – so if you already know you’re not a big fan of Himesh and his characteristic nasal delivery, you might be wise to steer clear of the super-sized Damadamm soundtrack, since Himesh provides […]
