Allah ke Banday is an album with various composers coming up together while Chirantan Bhatt seems to be leading with his Maula running already. Here is a review.
The album starts with a Sufi-rock Maula Samjha de Inhe, the song composed by Chirantan Bhatt and sung by Hamza Farooqui and Krishna. A combination that I have never seen yet but the way the song sounds all good and is running successfully, I will not be surprised if I see Hamza and Krishna singing together more in future. A complete like, with the plea made by the two leads showing up in the right attitude and the words sounding perfectly matching in the context of the movie.
The next song, kya hawa kya baadal, is composed by Kailasa, that is Kailash Kher, Naresh and Paresh, and sung by of course, Kailash himself. The song has Kailasa touch quite clear, with added electronica effects, which make the song align more to a theme type than a typical lyric-based song of the band, though the song still is a good deal about the lyrics, which is another good thing about the song. A thumbs up again. Continue reading “Allah ke Banday: Music Review”
And here I find something that is compelling enough to make me watch a movie. Allah ke Banday, the acting debut of the movie’s director, is a something that moves you with its trailer itself. A story of two children who are called ‘born killers’, 11 years after they are put into Jail, for murders as can be easily guessed from the trailer. Interestingly, I can see Sharman Joshi and Atul Kulkarni together after long, in a movie that reminds me of Rang De Basanti. And yes, Naseeruddin Shah looks wonderful as always. Here is the trailer.
Frankly, after watching Rann, Ishqiya is quite out of my mind. But one thing which I can surely tell you is that when I was watching it, I was loving it.
Ishqiya is an entertainment package. While the story of the film is okay with an old cliche given a new form, the direction of the movie is good, acting of Naseer, Arshad and Vidya is high quality, Vishal’s music is awesome and Rekha’s voice is beyond words.
Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti might be awaited, but NOW, it will be really awaited. I think we need such trailers for movies to be hit. The trailer reminds me of Mahabhrat (intendedly, of course) with a wonderful voice over that sounds like that by Nana Patekar. Well, no discussions on that for now. Watch the trailer. Listen to the voice over. To Vande Mataram. And wait for May 28th. Continue reading “Rajneeti: Trailer”
