Shankar Ehsaan Loy have become a music factory this year. Before the score of one movie starts fading, they come up with the next. This time it’s Hum tum aur ghost, starring Arshad Warsi and Diya Mirza. With lyrics from Javed Akhtar again. Here is a review. Dekho Raste mein is a fast, peppy, but [...]
Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Whenever Caralisa Monteiro comes to sing for Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, there is generally something worth looking for. Kal Tum The Yahan of Hum Tum aur Ghost, sung by Shankar along with Caralisa is no exception. Kal tum the yahaan is a wonderful, slow, and absolutely lovable song on a beautiful melody that you will most probably love [...]
Want to know how is My Name is Khan? Go to Google and start typing, “My Name is Khan and ” Stop. You will see the first suggestion there. My Name is Khan and I am not a Terrorist. Yes, you get an idea about the movie. The best thing about My Name is Khan is [...]
I don’t think I have any doubt anymore regarding Uff Teri Adaa being the best song of Karthik Calling Karthik. I have heard the song a number of times and I am getting superb responses on the song. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy give some electric music and it’s working like anything. People are in love with Alyssa Mendonsa’s [...]
You are free to disagree with me, but I do not think Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are the best in Bollywood. It’s Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy-Farhan who are the best. Be it Dil Chahta Hai, Lakshya, Rock On, or Karthik Calling Karthik. Yes, you know what I mean, they rock. Once again. So no more bakbak. Straight to the review.
(REVIEW of the album Karthik Calling Karthik is HERE.) Karthik calling Karthik is the new movie of Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone directed by Vijay Lalwani. The music, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, will be out on 18th January 2010. The promos of the movie are already out and we already have good reviews on Hey ya, [...]
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.
I can’t believe how good 2010 sounds. I mean the music of 2010 movies of Bollywood. After Ishqiya and My Name is Khan, there is another movie that seems to be bringing some great music with it. Karthik calling Karthik. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Javed Akhtar (did I see Javed Akthar written in the promo? Deliberate mistake?) [...]
Ujde se lamhon ko aas teri Zakhmi dilon ko hai pyaas teri Har dhadkan ko talaash teri Tera milta nahin hai pata.. Remember that ‘Sach hai ki dil to dukha hai‘ sung by Sonu Nigam in Kal ho na ho? I record them as one of the very best lines of Sonu Nigam. In Noore-Khuda, [...]
2010 is turning out to be great in terms of music. While Veer was unexpectedly good, Ishqiya was HUGE and My Name is Khan is not disappointing either. The album, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, has six songs, no remixes, Shankar Mahadevan in three of them but none sung alone by him. Names of Rahat Fateh Ali [...]
So the promos of My Name is Khan are finally out. And so have some pieces of music from here and there. I got a 3 and half minute clip of the song and some additional information. The song sounds good as Rahat Fateh Ali Khan sings for a full fledged SRK movie once again [...]
I am writing this post with my poll, best music of 2009, in the next tab. The poll results yet are almost the same as I expected, except for a few changes caused by one factor, a species called fans, which I had almost never seen until I started the poll. Anyway, today I am [...]
Here comes another poll. This one should not be very difficult for you. There have been a number of music directors with a number of movie albums this year. You have to select who is the music composer of the year according to you. I have given the names of their composed albums in front [...]
Composers have been singing their compositions from time immemorial. Be it a legendary SD Burman singing wahan kaun hai tera musafir in Guide or a rock-popping Anu Malik trying Ek Garam Chai ki Pyali ho, composers have always found their share of singing, especially when they compose single. But for past some years, the trend [...]
Dear Vipul, If only you knew that we, the people of India, who happen to be your audience, are living in the 21st century and not in ’70s or ’90s, London Dreams would be a blockbuster. Still, your effort was good, and I must congratulate you for a better than average movie you made. That [...]
