  •     Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu
    In the soundtracks like Aamir, Dev D, Wake Up Sid and Aaisha, Amit Trivedi has given enough evidence of his multi-faceted talent as a composer-singer-lyricist-musician. Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu is another welcome addition to his repertoire. ...
  •     Agneepath
    After dominating Marathi film music over the last few years, the composer-duo Ajay-Atul made a successful if not too impactful entry in Bollywood through Singham. In Agneepath, they seem to have got their Bollywood bearing right and thus we get an al...
  •     Band Baaja Baarat
    When it is a Yash Raj Film soundtrack and that too with a title like Band Baaja Baarat, then obviously it is time for Bhangra and marriage-songs! So following that dictum, the album features some robust rhythmic Bhangra-pop numbers like Ainvay Ainvay...
  •     Break Ke Baad
    Composers Vishal-Shekhar continue their good singing-composing form and deliver a trademark peppy Hinglish- flavoured rom-com soundtrack. The album is full of westernized rock-pop styled tunes, specifically tailored for urban audiences. Prasoon Jos...
  •     Meri Kahani
    Atif Aslam’s edgy piercing vocals have already made quite an impression on Indian sub-continental pop music scene. In his latest album, Atif spares no effort to show off his versatility. Nostalgia about lost love seems to be the central theme. Th...
  •     Guzaarish
    Maverick film-maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali decides to give his creativity full free reign and takes up baton as the composer. The songs he composes for his film are more like mood-building atmospheric background music-pieces. Contemplation about love ...
  •     Action Replayy
    Shreya Ghoshal’s nicely rendered romantic tracks O Bekhabar and Baaki Main Bhool Gayi stand out amongst Pritam’s tunes for this Vipul Shah’s back-to-70s comic film soundtrack. Daler Mehdi’s Jor Ka Jhatka may have proved popular but is now mir...
  •     Golmaal 3
    For Rohit Shetty’s crazy comic caper, Pritam composes some enjoyable upbeat numbers. Through their title-song KK, Anushka Manchanda and Monali Thakur remind us that Golmaal Is Back Again! The latter songs Apna Har Din (Shaan-Anushka), Ale (Neeraj S...
  •     Anjaana Anjaani
    From Jhankar Beats to I Hate Love Storys, Vishal- Shekhar have established themselves as the go-to composers for urban rom-coms. For this romantic comedy, too, the composer- duo comes up with a handy mix of modern romantic ballads, duets and party-so...
  •     Dabangg
    Behind a successful Hindi film is usually a successful soundtrack and Sajid-Wajid’s music in this superhit Salman Khan-film proves that rule. Going with the film’s Uttar Pradesh-based story-line, the music uses UP-folk-style to great effect in ro...
  •     Lafangey Parindey
    Ex- Agosh- member/ jingle-maker R. Anandh turns a new leaf to come back to Bollywood as a composer. His Rock-styled compositions and guitar-synthesizer- dominated arrangements make their mark in this Yash Raj- soundtrack and Swanand Kirkire's fittin...
  •     Once Upon A Time In Mumbai
    Pritam comes up with some outstanding tunes in this album. Mohit Chauhan's superbly rendered Pee Loon and Tulsi Kumar – Rahat Fateh Ali Khan's mushy duet Tum Jo Aaye are two imaginative tracks, where the central romantic melodies are nicely fused...
  •     Khatta Meetha
    Kunal Ganjawalla's spiritedly rendered Hip Hop-styled, Marathi-tinged Nanachi Taang has already become a huge chart-buster but otherwise Pritam's music is pretty average in this soundtrack. KK- Sunidhi Chauhan's romantic duet Sajde, Daler Mehdi ...
  •     I Hate Love Storys
    Vishal- Shekhar return to form with a youthful soundtrack, seamlessly melding melody and rhythm. Vishal Dadlani chips in as a singer with two foot-tapping westernized tracks – Jab Mila Tu and I Hate Love Storys. Shekhar Ravjiani shows his singing s...
  •     Rajneeti
    Musically speaking, Prakash Jha's films have hardly been impressive but Rajneeti changes that trend. It is a varied and melodious soundtrack featuring tunes of multiple composers- Pritam, Aadesh Shrivastav, Shantanu Moitra and Wayne Sharpe. Breezy r...
  •     Raavan
    When artistes of the caliber of Rahman, Mani Rathnam and Gulzar come together, sounds of Roja, Bombay and Dil Se start making rounds in mind. But the music of Raavan comes nowhere close to those classics in terms of quality as well as popular appea...
  •     Housefull
    This must rank as the most frivolous soundtrack created by the Team SEL and yet, true to their talent, the trio makes it interesting and entertaining. Using crunchy beats (Oh girl you are mine and Loser) , corny lyrics (Hush hush hush papa is sleepin...
  •     Paathshala
    Hanif Shaikh's heavily rock-influenced music does come up with some interesting tunes in this album. Salim Merchant's Aye Khuda Mujhko Bata and Kailash Kher's Teri Marzi are two excellent mellow contemplative numbers. Lucky Ali's piercing Beqarar...
  •     Na Ghar Ke Na Ghat Ke
    Soundtrack of this off-beat comedy brings back Lalit Pandit (of the erstwhile Jatin- Lalit pair) as a composer and he does a fair job. Remo Fernandes renders the breezy title-song Na Ghaar ke Na Ghaat Ke with his typical gusto and later the same song...
  •     Kites
    The Roshan- trio (Rakesh, Rajesh and Hrithik) have proved to be a winning combination in Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, Koi Mil Gaya and Kkrish, But in Kites, their musical chemistry fails to sizzle. It is an album that seems to be too introspective and too mell...
