  •     Lottery
    Santhokh Singh has composed a few good romantic tracks in Lottery but they are most likely to go unnoticed thanks to the film sinking badly at the box-office. Definitely the main attraction of this album is Abhijeet Sawant. From a middle class simple...
  •     Sikandar
    This album featuring compositions from Shankar-Ehsan-Loy, Sandesh Shandilya and Uday- Justin, presents a few interesting off- beat songs. Dhoop Ke Sikke (Shankar Mahadevan- Anusha Mani) is a superb soft rock-number, blessed with Prasoon Joshi’s tho...

  •     13 B
    For a movie that is supposed to be a sci-fi horror flick, 13 B features surprisingly soothing and melodious music. Shankar- Ehsan- Loy have composed some nice songs that linger in memory for quite some time....
  •     Chal Chala Chal
    If this movie was forgettable, then the music is no better, perhaps is even worse! Composers like Anu Malik, Anand Raj Anand and Sunil Jha come up with utterly insipid and mediocre tunes. Even presence of seasoned singers cannot save these compositio...
  •     Delhi 6
    Rahman does it again! The man currently seems to be at the peak of his musical powers as he composes yet another memorable soundtrack showing his full range as a composer, arranger and programmer....
  •     Raaz, The Mystery Continues
    The second installment of Raaz has been panned by the critics as ‘Horror of horrors’ but if there is one redeemable feature about this movie, then, it is its music. No, not the unimaginative background score but rather its varied songs. This Bhat...
  •     Slumdog Millionaire
    First the Golden Globe, now in line for the Oscar. Will A.R.Rahman never cease to amaze us with his dizzying ascent in the world of music- or should I say World Music? Well, if you look at his 15 year-old career, Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack ranks ...
  •     Dev D

  •     Dasvidaniya
    Popular singer-composer-lyricist Kailash Kher teams up with his composing partners-Paresh and Naresh to create some memorable songs for this non-mainstream film. Sonu Nigam starts off the album with Aawara Raahi Gumshuda- a stylishly fluffy song urgi...
  •     Heroes
    Monty Sharma and Sajid-Wajid compose a soundtrack dishing out mostly uninspiring clichéd situational fares like Badmash Launda- a UP-Bihar folk-styled item song, Makhna- a Bhangra-dance-track, Mannata- a romantic number with a Punjabi touch and What...
  •     Ghajini
    An Aamir Khan-movie is an event in itself and when A.R. Rahman steps in there as the composer, it becomes even more significant! In the past this peerless actor-composer association has given us some memorable albums like Lagaan, Mangal Pandey and Ra...
