  •     Aladin
    Fantasy, frivolity and fun- that's what the film promises and the music tries hard to deliver. Sr. Bachchan (playing the genie!) shows off his singing through two fun-tracks a Hip Hop-styled Genie Rap (with Anushka Manchanda) and a Bhojpuri-styled O...
  •     Jail
    A realistic hard-hitting film on the subject of 'Jail' doesn't offer much scope for music and the album proves that. Bhandarkar's latest film employs Sharib-Toshi and Shamir Tandon as composers to dish out passable situational fares. Sharib- Tosh...
  •     Tum Mile
    Pritam Hear some more pleasing modern romantic songs in this Pritam-soundtrack. Neeraj Shridhar's superb rendition of the rhythmic title song Tum Mile sets the tone perfectly. This song also comes in 'Love reprise' version by Javed Ali and 'Ro...
  •     Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani
    The fast, foot-tapping fun-tracks are to be expected in this album since the film happens to be a comedy but surprisingly the mellow romantic compositions hog the limelight here. Despite his mind-boggling workload, Pritam manages to create some quali...
  •     Blue
    A. R. Rahman is back and back with a bang! In his first post- Oscar soundtrack, the modern maestro composes some sizzling tunes. Rahman's typically eclectic compositions traverse the entire world music gamut here. These catchy and crowd-pleasing son...
  •     All The Best
    Going with the fun-film theme, Pritam creates an enjoyable soundtrack full of peppy energetic fusion-tracks. Suraj Jagan – Roopam Islam's opening number Dil Kare and KK – Yashita's romantic Haan Main Jitni Martaba are heavily rock music- influe...
  •     Main Aurr Mrs. Khanna
    Fresh from their Wanted- success, composers Sajid- Wajid come back in yet another Salman Khan-starrer dishing out their typical brand of palatable but none-too-original tunes. The soundtrack begins promisingly with Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal team...
  •     Dil Bole Hadippa
    Welcome to the Yashraj's modern version of rustic Punjab! Pritam composes an energetic and enjoyable soundtrack filled up with celebratory Bhangra dance-songs set to the thumping Dhol beats and spruced up with Punjabi- Hinglish fusion lyrics.. Songs...
  •     Wake Up Sid
    Shankar- Ehsan- Loy come up with yet another patented and largely predictable soft rock- pop soundtrack centered around the theme of contemporary youth's quest for finding his own niche. Talented singers Shankar Mahhadeevan and Clinton Cerejo do giv...
  •     What\'s Your Rashee?
    It is indeed tough when you are stepping into A.R. Rahman's shoes as a replacement, composing 13 multi-genre songs for 12 sun-signs, singing 9 songs yourself and asking the film's director and his sister to join you as singers! By that token, Sohai...
  •     Wanted
    Dance and action. What else do you expect when Prabhu Deva and Salman Khan come together in a film? So going with the theme, Wanted- soundtrack is full of foot-tapping dance- tracks. The album kickstarts with Love Me Love Me Love Me (Wajid, Amrita Ka...
  •     Life Partner
    Over the years, Govinda's comedies have developed their own brand of music, which is fast, frothy and forgettable and Life Partner-music is no different! Composer Pritam just goes through the motions to create some situational fun-tracks such as Kuk...
  •     Kaminey
    Trust Vishal Bhardwaj to every time come up with something refreshingly different. Kaminey as a film was an enjoyable experience and its music doesn't disappoint either. Bhardwaj's tunes here present an enticing mix of North Indian folk music, 70s ...
  •     Luck
    If Luck proved unlucky at the box-office, then a lot of that has to do with its rather mediocre soundtrack. Salim- Sulaiman dish out a staple of forgettable club-songs like Aazma Luck Aazma, Lagaa Le and Jee Le, all centered on the theme of trying yo...
  •     Love Aaj Kal
    By his own admission, Pritam is not a terribly original composer. Time and again, he has been accused of/guilty of plagiarism but when it comes catchy sound-designing, he definitely stands amongst the best in contemporary Bollywood. His music in Love...
  •     Kambakht Ishq
    After remaining on the sidelines for quite some time, composer Anu Malik makes a mini- comeback to Bollywood's big league with Kambakht Ishq. The film has received its fair share of brickbats for being a brainless 'entertainer' (!) and the soundtr...
  •     Jashn
    After making a mark with Mahi in Raaz 2, the Sabri brothers – Sharib and Toshi compose their first full soundtrack in Bhatt-brothers' Jashn. It is an interesting album in typical Bhatts- tradition with songs of varied tones and textures. The two c...
  •     Runway
    Composer Shamir Tandon dishes out a rather palatable fare in this album. Pakistani rock- artiste Mustafa Zahid is impressive in the opening track – Khuda Ke Liye, a moody reflective ballad. KK's Teri Yaaden Dil Mein and Shaan – Sunidhi's Roshan...
  •     New York
    New York is not a typical Yashraj candy-floss musical but even within its terrorism-related story-line, music- director Pritam has managed to compose some really nice numbers that linger in mind long after the soundtrack is over. ...
  •     Morning Walk
    Music director Jeet Ganguli had so far done little of note after separating from his erstwhile music- partner Pritam. But in Morning Walk he comes into his own in style. The soundtrack is undoubtedly one of the best of the year but looking at this fi...
