Anjaana Anjaani : Music Review

anjaanaanjaani3.jpgAfter watching very first promo, I was so annoyed that they played around one of the most favorite Rahman song of mine. Anjana Anjani from Yuva. I tweeted 2-3 times too that the song is annoying, but after repeated [hammering??] promos, I am actually loving the song. And after listening to full track 'Anjaana Anjaani ki Kahani' is a favorite fun song right now. Nikhil D'Souza and [yes, Indian Idol] Monali Thakur makes it fun on the go track. Oh, and did I mention 'RD Burmanish' sound in antaras?

After mazedar track Ahista Ahista in Bachna Ae Haseeno, VS again team up with Lucky Ali to give yet another great track. 'Hairat' penned by Vishal himself [!!] is outstanding in terms of words, singing and composition. As blogger-dost Harshit puts it, Lucky Ali still 'has it' at the age of 51. Indeed. Undoubtedly my fav from the album.

A hiccup comes after such tasty tracks, as soon as I hear voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, in a stereotyped manner. 'Aas Paas Khuda' is an okay number, sounds good only because of VS's composition and aalap before last para of song.

Peepli Live : Movie Review

I am not a fan of movies that glorifies poverty. So naturally, I was not 'that' curious about Peepli Live, directed by Anusha Rizvi. Coz I thought it will be a regular 'Satyajit Ray' genre movies [which I personally, don't like], that it is easily getting accepted around festival circuit.

But on the other hand, after all, its by the production house which is going strong day by day for their 'different' movies - Aamir Khan Productions ! And you know who most reliable in Bollywood is, when you are looking forward to him - he is never gonna disappoint. And the reports I was getting - that the movie has satirical touch - making it different.

And it is indeed....
