Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Music Review

27 July 2012 3:16 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Starring choreographer turned director Farah Khan, who is making her debut as a lead actress, the love story of Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi also stars the great Boman Irani. This is not a classic Hindi romance, with the young college students finding love. In fact, this romantic comedy tells the tale of love later in life and finding your soul mate no matter what your age. Produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film was directed by Bela Segal and is set to release on August 24th. Jeet Ganguly (Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, and many Bengali soundtracks) was brought in to bring the songs of the film to life. To be honest I had no idea what to expect when I sat down to listen to this Ost, and what I heard did surprise me. Was it a good surprise or bad? Read on!

From Sydney With Love Music Review

4 July 2012 11:51 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

From Sydney With Love is the Golden Jubilee revival project for Pramod Films – the production house known for films such as Ziddi, Love In Tokyo, Nastik, Deedar and Barood. The film marks the film debut of production house head Pramod Chakravorty’s grandson Prateek, who  also wrote and directed the film. From Sydney With Love also stars newcomers Bidita Bag, Sharad Malhotra, Evelyn Sharma, and Karan Sagoo.

The soundtrack has been handed to up and coming It Kid, Sohail Sen, to oversee, fresh off his successful foray into mainstream Bollywood with the hit soundtrack for Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.

Sohail Sen is seemingly going from strength to strength – and it makes me super excited for the Ek Tha Tiger soundtrack! His work on the Fswl album errs on the the side of just edgy enough to keep it interesting, but not so experiemental to alienate a mainstream audience. In short: »

Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum Music Review

1 July 2012 10:53 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Sachin-Jigar don’t often go wrong – and the effervescent, fun, poppy soundtrack to upcoming release Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum (the sequel to the surprise hit, Kyaa Kool Hain Hum) just proves the composer duo are still fully on their game! All the promos for the forthcoming adult comedy (described as a “sex-com”) have been bright, colourful, goofy and peppy – and the soundtrack is fully in line with that vibe.

Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya has already proven popular with its colourful, goofy, Austin Powers inspired video; and to be honest, I can see why: this song is one of those cheerfully in your face techno-pop tunes that it’s pretty impossible not to like. With a relentlessly thumping bass line, a catchy chorus and sparing use of autotune, with Vishal Dadlani’s voice adding just the right amount of rock “edge” to the proceedings, just try to get this »

Cocktail Music Review

16 June 2012 8:51 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

From the fun and exciting promos, Cocktail looks like a good romantic comedy that looks to appeal across the board. Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, and debutante Diana Penty are the friends caught in ménage a trois of friendship and love in London. What caught everyone’s attention was some of that arresting music by Pritam that made sure ‘Tumhi Ho Bandhu’ stuck with you, and left you wanting to hear more. Pritam has also borrowed Honey Singh’s brilliant track ‘Angreji Beat’ which doesn’t come with the album, but the album would be incomplete without such a fabulous tune! Coming off a strong year of good and fun albums like Agent Vinod, and Ferrari ki Sawaari, Pritam definitely impresses here, and he can definitely be counted on to deliver some good songs for a romantic comedy like this one.

We start with that track that became such a great earworm, »

Tumhi Ho Bandhu is one of our favorite tracks from Cocktail. Pritam’s music and Irshad Kamil’s lyrics combine well to deliver a fun song with a lot of repeat value. Hear it once, and you will be hooked. Two very talented singers Neeraj Shridhar and Kavita Seth have lent their voice. Also, what really stands out in Tumhi Ho Bandhu is the Read More »

The very first song from the upcoming fun romance Cocktail starring Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Diana Penty,’Tumhi Ho Bhandu’, has everyone grooving to the beat.

Bittoo Boss Music Review

20 March 2012 3:59 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

It all started with the snippet of “Bittoo sab ki lega” in the promos, which went viral earlier this year. The song soon stoked the ire of Censor Board who asked for a cleaner trailer, which the producers refused and that phrase has entered the filmi lexicon. This audacious move by the makers certainly got the audience anticipating the rest of the music. One might have thought that the rest of the songs might be in the same naughty vein as a ‘Bhaag Dk Bose’.  Along with the music, and hero Pulkit Samrat looking like a distant relative of the Delhi Boy played by Ranveer Singh in Band Bajaa Baraat, the movie certainly looks to capture on the success of their previous Pyar Ka Punchnama. Unlike our expectations, the music is a mixed bunch of tracks that totally get you into the party mood.

Hitting off we start with the track that got us excited, »

Housefull 2 Music Review

7 March 2012 8:31 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

From the ‘leaked’ promos and the catchy ‘Papa Toh Band Bajaye’, Housefull 2 looks to be another sure-fire hit for Sajid Khan. However this time around, Khan has roped in Sajid and Wajid to help with the music unlike the usual Shankar Ehsaan and Loy. S-e-l actually did some of their most commercial and innovative work in Heyy Baby and Housefull so the expectations are very high for Sajid-Wajid to measure to those previous gems. However Sajid-Wajid are capable composers and they definitely add their masala sound to this hugely anticipated film.

Papa Toh Band Bajaye or Papa Toh No Speak Americano? Already the song is surrounded by controversy, as their main track sounds suspiciously similar to ‘We No Speak Americano’ by the Australian DJ Americano and Melissa Kool. The beats are quite uncanny as the rhythm and repetition is plainly the same, yet in spite of the straight lift that they’ve done, »

‘I’ll Do the Talking’ from Agent Vinod

3 February 2012 7:50 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

We have an exclusive look at the first song coming from the Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor starrer Agent Vinod! With music by Pritam, the track with the title ‘I’ll Do the Talking’ was sung by Neeraj Sridhar. The cool thing is that this is Pritam’s take on ‘Rasputin’ by Boney M. He told Toi, “We have taken the rights of Boney M’s Rasputin. However, our song is based more on the Serbian folk song Ruse Kose Curo Imas. Even Rasputin draws inspiration from this song. A Turkish folk song Uskudar’a Gider Iken also has the same melody. Famous Bengali poet Kazi Nazrul Islam’s song Shukno Paatar Noopur Paaye is also based on this folk tune.”

Shridhar Subramaniam of Sony Music added, “The song Rasputin by legendary band Boney M has been an all time favourite. We are delighted that this song will now get a fresh lease of life. »

Top 10 Female Playback Singers of 2011

10 January 2012 12:30 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Our leading ladies and item girls will be nowhere near half as attractive without the talented singers that voice their musical numbers. What’s more, while our cinematic experiences with our on-screen goddesses have a time limit, our playback goddesses are always with us in iPods, tablets, computers, radios and more. This year Bollyspice salutes the 10 female playback singers who astounded us with their vocals throughout the year. 

10.  Neha Bhasin 

Ms, Bhasin (of ‘Viva!’ and ‘Kuch Khaas’ (Fashion) fame) epitomised the image of a Punjabi rock chick and commanded a nation to rock and roll with her in ‘Dhunki’ (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan).While Katrina Kaif may/may not have done justice to her vocalisations, Neha sure did make a place for herself in our hearts and on this list. 

9. Nandani Srikar

Ms. Srikar successfully vocalised a classical indian/rock fusion with ‘Bhare Naina’ (Ra.One) this year and proved that »
