No, it’s never easy to comment on a song composed by Rahman. Reasons are many. For one, they’re never ‘bad.’ You’ll always like them at least a bit even if at the start they sound strangest thing in the world.

But the worst thing is that u can not always be sure of disliking a song of his. Probably that is why he is Rahman.
Anyway, here is a review of his new album, Jhootha hi Sahi.

It’s for the first time that I am posting two links for one movie, and almost one song only, for the second time in 24 hours. But then Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s music is so addictive, that I cannot help it. Here it comes.

Genius + Genius = Superb Work. Mostly.
Well. Ishqiya is something like that only. Here you have Vishal Bharadwaj and Gulzar. And with them come Sukhwinder Singh, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Rekha Bharadwaj, and, Mika. The result is certainly good.
OK. First, the bad thing about the album. That there are just four songs in the album (packed as seven tracks though) which was a bit disappointing when I saw the track listing. Second, will be updated when found. 😉
Enough, a seriously good album and here comes a serious review. As good as I can right now.
