Like every year, Bollywood had an eccentric mix bag of movies to offer us in 2012. Some expected hits, some near misses, some total disappointments, some surprise hits.

10. Ishaqzaade

Romance has always been Bollywood’s forte, and it is sad that we have hardly had any decent love stories in the past few years.

Bol Bachchan Music Review

Yes it’s a Himesh Reshammiya soundtrack – and he’s back to turning his hand at composing, something he usually does very well. With a mere four tracks (and four remixes) the Bol Bachchan soundtrack is very brief. But is it any good?

The title track Bol Bachchan opens with some nonsensical dialogue, very reminiscent of the pseudo-scientific babble that memorably opens the Amitabh Bachchan classic My Name is Anthony Gonsalves, before launching into an upbeat, rhythmic, nearly hypnotic tune (it’s an epic 6 minutes long!). I’m not generally a fan of songs that have dialogue interspersed all the way through, but this track has a mellow groove and a catchy chorus, and the Usp of the Bachchans (Amitabh and Abhishek) taking on the main burden of the vocals (with support from Ajay Devgn, Himesh Reshammiya, Mamta Sharma and Vineet Singh). If anyone stands out in this track, it’s Big B,
