EK MAIN AUR EKK TU music review: Light and breezy!
Though not at his best here, Amit Trivedi still comes up with a soothing soundtrack for this romantic film
A Bollywood love story is always associated with its love songs. And contemporary rom-coms call for young and vibrant music. Amit Trivedi, along with lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya, does that quite comfortably with Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. Bollywood’s most amazing ability is to adopt various forms of music and make them its own. So each of EMAET’s tracks could easily be slotted as Bolly-country, Bolly-blues, Bolly-jazz, Bolly-techno and so on. Click here to read more

AGNEEPATH music review: A great musical recipe!
B-town newbies Ajay-Atul prove that they have it in them to light up a big ticket Hindi movie with their earthy sensibilities
Agneepath is an out-and-out action film and a revenge drama, so you would naturally not expect too much excitement in the music department. Yet, the soundtrack of the movie is interesting, mainly because the composers and the makers have pooled in different moods and a good variety of sounds and styles.
Ajay-Atul rose to fame with Chikni Chameli’s original Marathi song Kombdi palali from Jatra and now with the remade Chikni, they have managed to hit the top of the charts in B-town as well. Shreya Ghoshal has done a great job in adapting her soft voice to the aggressive and super-fast tempo of the song. But it’s probably Katrina Kaif’s jhatka-matkas and sex appeal and not so much the musical quality of the song that has worked in this case. Click here to read more
