Action Jackson is an upcoming action/comedy starring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam and Kunal Roy Kapoor in the leading roles. Directed by the great Prabhudeva, the film is scheduled for release on 5 December and promises to be an adrenaline-pumping action caper. The music to the film has been composed by Himesh Reshammiya, with lyrics from Shabbir Ahmed. So does the music to Action Jackson offer us anything interesting? Read on to check out our thoughts on it!
To kick start the album, we have Keeda sung by Himesh Reshammiya and Neeti Mohan. The song sounds strange to me and I think this is due to poorly produced music by Himesh, as well as bad lyrics too. It just does not spark your interest in any way and I found it difficult to engage with the song overall. A disappointing effort on Himesh’s part who I feel could »

The song launch event saw debutant Manasvi Mamgai grooving stylishly to the beats of ‘Gangster Baby’. The actress who was looking smoking hot called Ajay Devgn by the end of her performance and Prabhudheva joined the duo later on the stage.
The peculiarity of this song lies in its fast paced beats that make it very apt for a party number. Neeraj Sridhar and Neeti Mohan are the artists who have lend their vocals to this floor thumping track that adds to the action punch of the movie.
Check out the song and some pictures from the event!

The song has been composed by Music Director, Singer, Actor and Producer Himesh Reshammiya. Himesh has proved once again why he truly is India’s first Rockstar, by composing this song. Rock music has generally not been embraced by Bollywood and where it has, it has often been misunderstood or toned down. ‘Gangster Baby’ is one of the first (almost pure) rock songs for Bollywood. Himesh has composed some excellent electrical guitar sections within the song and the piano even makes a cheeky appearance during the opening of the song.
Singers Neeti Mohan and Neeraj Shridhar have lent their voices to this gutsy composition. Neeti has given powerful vocals and this is probably one of her most experimental songs as a singer. The lyrics have been written by Shabbir Ahmed.

Bobby Jasoos is Born Free Entertainment’s second offering after the romantic comedy Love Breakups Zindagi. The film is set in Hyderabad and stars Vidya Balan as an aspirational detective. Balan is supported by an impressive list of artists, comprising of Supriya Pathak (Ram-Leela), Arjan Bajwa (Fashion), Ali Fazal (3 Idiots and Fukrey) and Tanvi Azmi (Dushman).
The musical-lyrical duo of Shantanu Moitra and Swanand Kirkire (3 Idiots, Parineeta) are the helm of the soundtrack, which features the vocals of Neeraj Sridhar, Shreya Ghoshal and Papon (‘Kyon’ – Barfi) amongst others. It is a short fare comprising of 5 tracks, thankfully devoid of any mindless filler remixes.
The album commences with the celebratory Jashn, which is energetically rendered by Shreya Ghoshal and Bonnie Chakraborty. It is a fast paced track with a nice Southern vibe and decent lyrics from Kirkire. It feels like an introductory track for the film’s heroine with the first »

Homosexuality, gay rights and a traditional Indian family.
Can the above really be placed within the same sentence?
They certainly can and they certainly should be.
This fact has been portrayed through a recently released music video, The Welcome.
The courageous and revolutionary music video stars Bollywood celebrity Celina Jaitley and portrays homosexuality openly within a traditional Indian family setting.
As a young man proudly introduces his male partner to an eagerly assembled desi family, The Welcome inspires hope for family acceptance to both gay persons and loved ones.
Not only does the music video normalise homosexuality, but the openly honest portrayal within an Indian family setting encourages family acceptance of homosexuality.
Indeed, why should homosexuals have to hide and feel they cannot be part of immediate and extended family, when actually, sexuality is not a choice and love is love?
Unfortunately, honesty and acceptance can be complicated and also »
