Sultan – Music review (Text + Audio link)

Music in a Salman Khan film is always a delicate affair. The composer(s) job is to give a good thump, but not excessive rhythm because then bhai would have to dance and that is not his strongest point.

There are 2 versions of this … Continue reading Barfi! Music review…almost

Ok Ok it does add a little bit of youth quotient to the sound of it.  Shankar mahadevan, Joi and Suraj Jagan sing this one. The sudden … Continue reading Zindagi na milegi dobara – Music review…well almost! 🙂
