Music Review: Why Cheat India

7 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS Music of an Emraan Hashmi has to be special. However, since Why Cheat India is more of a concept based film that deals with education nexus, one doesn't really have much of an idea around what to expect from the entire soundtrack. Multiple composers, lyricists and singers come together to create half a dozen songs for Why Cheat India. MUSIC There is a surprise in store right at the beginning though with a Punjabi club number kick-starting the proceedings. This isn't something that one expected from Why Cheat India and hence a rollicking start like this is much welcome. An all-around Guru Randhawa show in terms of composition, lyrics and rendition, 'Daaru Wargi' is a fun number that should find itself as a hot favourite amongst the DJs at the clubs and the dance floors. Chartbuster material. Punjabi mood continues in Why Cheat India with newcomer singer Prabhjee Kaur giving a good account of herself in her major Bollywood outing. A celebration number that is..
                 

Music Review: Hum Chaar

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS There was a time when a Rajshri film was special and its music was much awaited as well. However, of late the production house has slowed down its operations, at least when it comes to feature films. Their last biggie was Prem Ratan Dhan Payo and now they are coming up with Hum Chaar which features four newcomers. Though Barjatyas have traditionally worked with a single composer for music of their films, they bring on board a horde of composers for Hum Chaar. Shabbir Ahmed writes. MUSIC George Joseph is the composer for 'Friends Bhi Family Hain' which has night club music feel to it. That said, somehow the music overpowers lyrics (by Abhishek Dixit) and hence somehow the rendition by Aaman Trikha and Rajiv Sundaresan is lost in the middle of it all. Moreover, the core hook of the song is the kind that sounds more like an ad jingle than a film song. Team SARA gets to compose maximum number of songs in Hum Chaar with three of these to their credit. First to a..

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
While Emraan Hashmi’s upcoming film is counting a lot of controversies, the makers of the film Why Cheat India are proposing to putting in a formal application to make the film "tax free".

With strong disciplinary action being taken against cricketer Hardik Pandya for his deeply sexist comments it looks like the axe may also fall on Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee With Karan. Sources close to Star Plus, the channel that hosts the popular show, “are considering their options considering the uproar over the content.” Many in the know feel that Karan Johar as the show’s architect and helmer should have exercised more control during the editing. A prominent filmmaker who has so far desisted from going on Karan’s show says the onus of propriety in the presentation lies with the producer. “It is your show. You have complete control over what goes into it. If an invitee loses control over his mouth, you as the show’s anchor and producer know where to draw the line.” Sources say Hardik Pandya could very well prove to be Karan’s show’s waterloo.
