In Bollywood you’ve got to make a name for yourself. And if you’re name kisses quality each time, your name becomes a brand. A brand people will follow like a religion. Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachan and Farhan Akhtar are one of those people. I went to see Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na just because of Aamir Khan. I’m sure a lot of people out there put their hard earned moolah into the movie for this very reason. Farhan Akhtar, the director made it big with Dil Chahta Hai. He’s back with Rock On!! Now here’s Farhan Akhtar the actor, the singer, the producer. Will he be a better actor than a director? That will have to wait. First let’s check out the music which was released yesterday.
Socha Hai – Farhan Akhtar
Pichle Saat Dinon Mein – Farhan Akhtar
Rock On!! – Farhan Akhtar
Ye Tumhari Meri Baatein – Dominique Cerejo
Zehreelay – Suraj Jaggan
Tum Toh Ho – Farhan Akhtar
Sinbad The Sailor – Farhan Akhtar, Raman Mahadevan
Pichle Saat Dinon Mein (Live Version) – Farhan Akhtar
Phir Dekhiye – Caralisa Monteiro
The music has been composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. The lyrics have been penned down by Javed Akhtar. At first look this might look like Farhan Akhtar’s private rock album. He has sung five out of the nine tracks in the album. And dude! He rocks! He certainly does. The music is simply good to listen to. The album starts with Socha Hai by Farhan Akhtar. This is just some brilliant stuff as usual from Shankar Ehsaan Loy. Farhan proves he can sing. And he sings quite well. So say hello to Farhan Akhtar, the singer. The next track Pichle Saat Dinon Mein is an attempt to rock. Farhan makes it sound so good. The lyrics make it even better. Chances are you’re humming the song, the very first time you hear it! The title song comes next, Rock On by Farhan Akhtar. Say hello to Farhan Akhtar, the rockstar. Ye Tumhari Meri Baatein is a solid slow soulful song. Who the heck is Dominique Cerejo? I’ve got to Google her! The rock part is not over yet. Zehreelay by Suraj Jaggan is a neat one. Tum Toh Ho by Farhan Akhtar is another slow song you’ll wanna hear again and again. You can skip Sinbad the Sailor. The album ends with Phir Dekhiye by Caralisa Monteiro. The lyrics are simply amazing. On the whole an album as expected. Go get it! You’ll love each and every song!

Rabbi Shergill is finally back with his new album titled Avengi Ja Nahin. His debut album Bulla was an undisputed hit across the nation despite zero money spent on advertising and the only promotion being a brilliant video and word of mouth publicity. His new album was earlier released on the Nokia’s N-Series platform. Rabbi’s new album comprises of nine brilliant tracks. Most of the album has been produced in Milan, Italy. Rabbi has penned down the lyrics and has composed the music for the album himself. His unique music made its way into many hearts. The new album has been released under the Yash Raj Music banner. The video for the title track Avengi Ja Nahin has already hit the national television.
The album begins with a brilliant track Chhalla. This one could give Gurdaas Mann a run for his money! This is one track you want to listen to after a hard day of work. In fact you could listen to any song in the album to relax your mind. Avengi Ja Nahin is another of Rabbi’s signature tracks. The lyrics are mesmerizing. Although I feel the video doesn’t do full justice to the song. Remember the smash hit Bulla’s video?! The video was so amazing and it went so well with the track. Next up, Tu Avin Bandra is a sweet track. Bilqis is rather interesting to listen to. If you do understand Punjabi, even a little, you’ll have a grip on the lyrics. In case you don’t, well you can still enjoy the soothing music. The album ends with Return to Unity which is another track you wanna listen to again and again. On the whole, the album is worth the money. If you liked Rabbi’s debut album you are gonna love his new album! Rabbi Shergill gets 10/10 from me!
Tashan’s music is finally out. Tashan is this year’s most anticipated flick from YashRajFilm’s camp. The music has been composed by Vishal-Shekhar duo. They have been responsible for several hits including Om Shanti Om, Tara Rum Pum, Salaam Namaste, Dus and Bluffmaster. Although no one yet knows the movie’s plot, the soundtrack could provide a hint. The music is comprised of a total of nine tracks. The music is a mix’n’match of everything. There are four intro tracks from the four main characters in the movie, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. So is it music or noise? Well, it’s a neat attempt. The music is well worth listening and makes you wanna hit the repeat mode once you’re done with it the first time.
The new album was recorded largely in hotel rooms and backstage dressing rooms around the world during the past two years and features the return of his long-time collaborator, Jim Vallance, on three cuts.
Yes Bryan Adams is back with a brand new album titled 11! The album is his 11th studio album. And does he fail to impress? No. Never! The album comprises of 11 tracks (too much of 11 eh?!). A yet another Bryan Adams must have album! Tracks that I like the most in the album are Oxygen, Walk on By, She’s got a way and I Thought I’d Seen Everything! So don’t wait, just go for it!
