One of the most dazzling events to kick start the Times of India Film Awards was the opening night’s Musical Extravaganza held Thursday night at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver. Hosted by the peppy and energetic Neha Dhupia, the concert featured Sunidhi Chauhan, Mohit Chauhan, Hard Kaur, Shalmali Kholgade, Abbas Hassan, and Kavita Seth. It was an evening full of wild flames, wonderful dancing, but felt rather improvisatory and rushed.
The event started a full half an hour late, which you can naturally forgive given the amount of prepwork that goes into pulling off such a huge event. When we hit the show running, choreographer Shiamak Davar decided on the unconventional route and sang his signature tune, ‘Jaane Kisne’. Instead of bringing out his troupe, Davar sang his tune around the stage alongside two dancers conveying that yearning and hope to the seductive beat. Davar can hold a tune »

They say that the three digits '786' are very auspicious. And true to this, seems like Khiladi 786 has been blessed into becoming a blockbuster not just at the B.O., but also on the small screen.
When the Akshay- Asin- Himesh starrer Khiladi 786 was shown on TV, it recorded a Trp of a breath-taking 5.1. This response matters more to Himesh as he is also the co-producer of the film. With Khiladi 786, Himesh has struck gold for the sixth time in a row as a music director, the previous ones being Bodyguard, Bol Bachchan, Omg Oh My God, Son Of Sardaar, and also the recently released Special 26 (where he was the guest composer).
With Himesh purchasing the remake rights of Jatt And Juliet, sunny times are definitely ahead for this man on a musical mission! »

2012 was a reasonably good year for Bollywood overall, with trade pundits stating that in terms of innovation & commerce, the year set a benchmark. With the 2013 movie calendar looking additionally promising, it’s a safe bet that the year will have enough drama, action and (hopefully) moolah to keep everyone thoroughly entertained. But while 2012 was high on taking risks, leaving the old out and embracing the new, it left us desiring for more a little more in terms of alliances, trends and outlooks. Hence, though Christmas is a month past us, we are hoping that in the event Santa is working overtime, we have a small wishlist for the things we desire from Bollywood in 2013.

Looking back at 2012 song-ically, it certainly was a year of cool sounds, new voices, groovy and groovin’ beats and over all some killer tracks. Many of the songs brought a new vibe to the music of the movies, songs flavored with new influences, and songs that we never would have thought we would hear in a Bollywood flick. There were classic beats that got us up and dancing not to mention the grooves of today that got us to move to the music. We met some new singers we can’t wait to hear more of and some of our favorites blew us away with outstanding vocals. 2012 was full of surprises and we enjoyed so many of them, 50 in fact and every single note! As always we loved these songs when they first came out but once we saw them in the movie we loved them even more! Check out »
