Jaan-E-Mann was a very different film and told in a very novel fashion. The use of colour and visuals is very impressive though the plot seemed cliched. The movie suffered more than it should have for being pitted against SRK‘s ‘Don‘ for a Diwali/Eid release. Anu Malik however did a good job with the music dept and the movie is remembered for Akshay Kumar‘s comic timing. This song in particular stands out for me and […]
‘Dil Hi Dil Main‘ was another of A.M.Rathnam‘s futile attempts to ride on the back of A.R.Rahman‘s music. Made Initially as ‘Kadhalar Dinam‘ in Tamil and later dubbed in Telugu as ‘Premikula Roju’, the movie starred a Barbie-looking Sonali Bendre and a the late Kunal Singh sporting a girlie hairdo. Nothings worth writing bout the film as I haven’t been able to sit through it despite trying thrice. However once can’t take away anything from […]
Sarfarosh is one such movie that you can watch anytime irrespective how many times you’ve seen it before. Released in 1999 every song in the album went on to be played by every music channel to this day. Brilliantly directed by John Mathew Matthan at a time when tensions were flaring, the movie was a blockbuster hit. Haven’t heard of another movie from the director again though. The song ‘Hoshwalon ko khabar’ is picturized on […]
This song is from a very forgettable movie called ‘Tarkieb‘ that featured a whole array of stars in a whodunit murder mystery. But this post is about the song and not the movie, and therefore ladeej and juntalmen I give you, ‘Kis ka Chehra’. Shot on a very young looking Tabu and Milind Soman(now you know why women still swoon at his mention!) this song is backed by Jagjit Singh and Alka Yagnik on the […]
‘Tu jo nahin hain’ was eclipsed by the super duper ‘Kya mujhe pyaar hain’ sung by KK for the film ‘Woh Lamhe‘. I don’t say that Pritam is a great music director but even Anu Malik churns out his best for the Bhatt stables. This song wasn’t again part of the promos and featured in the beginning of the movie along wit h the titles. It’s a possible chance that may have even missed it […]
‘Bol na halke halke’ was probably one of the most underrated and forgotten songs of 2007. Brilliant vocals by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Mahalaxmi Iyer but with the film(Jhoom Barabar Jhoom) sinking at the box office and the absence the promos, this song is unheard by many.

Husn bhi aap hain, Ishq bhi aap hain Jis taraf dekhiye aap hi aap hain Baaghon mein kamini, Mandir mein moorti Dekhi na aaj tak yeh khoobsoorati Ganga bhi aap hain, Jamuna bhi aap hain Jis taraf dekhoon aap hi aap hain Update: The song is from the movie Shapath and sung by Anup Goshal and compesed by Bappi Lahiri If you are in India download it form here, and in the US you can […]
Kehta Hai Pal Pal Tumse Ho Ke Dil Ye Deewana Ek Pal Bhi Jaane Jana Mujhse Door Nahin Jana Pyaar Kiya To Nibhana Pyaar Kiya To Nibhana This is a rather old and possibly long forgotten song. The lyrics are pretty simple and nothing to boast about, same can be said about the music. But there is some ting highly intoxicating and addictive bout it. See for yourselves, if you don’t believe me…..
Jab nahin aaye they tum tab bhi mere saath they tum dil mein dhadkan ki tarah, tan mein jeevan ki tarah meri dharti, mere mausam, mere din raat they tum jab nahin aaye they tum… phool khilte they to aati thi tumhaari khushboo har hasin shaam jagati thi tumhaara jadoo aaine mein mere har din ki mulakaat they tum dil mein dhadkan ki tarah, tan mein jeevan ki tarah meri dharti, mere mausam, mere din […]
wen all u can think of is protocols, sockets n code? This song has been in my head all this week. Lyrics below… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJAHsmv-kNI[/youtube] aapki kashish sarfarosh hain aapka nasha yu madhosh hain kya kahe tumse jaane ja gum hua hosh hain baairiyan chav ka jaadu joh chal gaya deewana main hua dil machal gaya halka dhuan utha mausam badal gaya roshan hua sama parwaana jal gaya jaagi re jaagi re main soyi teri hi […]
