Just ranting, because it is in vogue. This isn't a review 🙂 (because even this is in vogue) Long time back, when I was learning to push keyboard of the computer without fearing that it will explode and something might go wrong, I went to the online world to read and write about films, music, … Continue reading All events are real and not Fictional
Episode 4 Aamay Bhashaili Rey – Alamgir sahab started this in what is called Dhaka bangla, I am told. A heart breaking and tear inducing request made to the ‘majhi’. Alamgir sahab isn’t new to singing so it was hardly a surprise to see him taking this traditional composition and hugging it out melodiously. Fariha … Continue reading Thoughts of Episode 4 & 5 – CokeStudio Pakistan Season 6
ilahi This song appears twice in the soundtrack. Mohit chauhan's version has a dash of fun-n-frolic to it with Mohit getting hysterical in bits. All while accompanied by an excellent all kids backup vocal army! Arijit singh's version is free flowing and scores slightly above Mohit's version in terms of melody. Both versions however smell … Continue reading Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani – Music review
Do you know that Lootera music in the teaser has striking resemblance to a Hollywood film? O.K. having ticked the fainthearted self-declared 'rebels', now on to serious business. Googled and Googled about Ek thi daayan songs and the internet threw some song titles as the tracklist, hence sharing it. Am quite sure this might not … Continue reading Ek thi daayan – Tracklist (not officially confirmed)
So cokestudio at MTV still sells the music and not makes it available to us for free like the pakistani version? Alright....no review. I know it doesnt mean much to MTV but well...mera blog, mera mann.

That's me. When it comes to music. While I try very hard to nod along with the people who look down at film music (because it's so 'chalta hai' sorts), I do enjoy film music off and on. So when I saw everyone going overboard with this song, I told myself - 'Typical middle path … Continue reading Rigid

Be it your first ever concert I attended in Lucknow Be it the first ever album I got 'dubbed' (In Search) … Continue reading ‘New’ year?
What can one 'blog' about Mirza? Absolutely Nothing. Just wanted to register it here, that I thank God for his kindness that I was born in an era (with hearing, seeing and understanding faculties), when I was able to come across Ghalib sahab's work. How can I not mention Maalik (Gulzar) who made it possible … Continue reading Mirza Ghalib
I guess I was in Class 8. It was the month of may and we were attending a marriage in Hardoi (a small town near Lucknow, my hometown). It was long back. It was 1993.As one would associate with small towns, the evening was dark evening because there was no electricity and to add to … Continue reading GhazalJeet Singh
Yet another attempt to capture a good song....just can't get over it. And I wished for so long...cannot stay. All the precious moments...cannot stay. It's not like wings have fallen...cannot stay. But still something's missing...cannot say. Holding hands of daughters and sons, And their faiths are falling down. I have wished for so long... How … Continue reading Eddie Vedder & Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan- The Long Road – lyrics
