Sadda Haq ban: making a mockery of the CBFC
Punjabi film Sadda Haq is a cinematic look at the separatist movement in the state from the militants’ point of view and is purportedly based on true events
First of all, let us clarify that we are not referring to the AR Rahman’s hit song from Rockstar. That’s so 2011. We are talking about Mandeep Benipal’s Punjabi film Sadda Haq that was due to release last Friday but was banned at the last minute by the governments of Punjab, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir and Delhi on the grounds that it might fan the flames of communal disharmony. This is Benipal’s second film after 2010’s superhit Ekam: Son of Soil. Sadda Haq is a cinematic look at the separatist movement in the Punjab from the militants’ point of view and is purportedly based on true events. Click here to read more
AR Rahman: ‘Rockstar’ is not my best work
For the first time ever, AR Rahman performed live for a film promotion event for Rockstar. An excerpt from a chat with the maestro..
Is Rockstar AR Rahman’s best album yet? The music maestro didn’t have a clear answer when we asked him that just after the Rockstar concert in Mumbai last evening. Trying to laugh it off, he said, “I don’t know. I’ve not done this kind of music before. But it’s teamwork again. There’s a lot of inspiration…. Imtiaz (Ali) and me, we have been discussing the Rockstar story for the past four years. Then we had a break and the whole story took a turn. We thought we’ll make it more accessible to our Indian audience. Y’know, some people don’t care about rock and some people care about it too much. So, we had to find a balance in the music. Because it’s about a desi guy who becomes a rockstar not out of choice, but…(circumstances).”
So, which is his favourite song from Rockstar? “Saadda Haq,” said Rahman. Click here to read more

ROCKSTAR Music Review: AR Rahman is a rockstar
Cineswami had anointed Vishal-Shekhar’s RA.One album as the soundtrack of the year. It pales in comparison to Rahman’s tunes for Rockstar
“I hear music when I close my eyes. When I open my eyes the music does not go away. I often can’t follow the words that people speak, but I get the music of their soul. It’s good that way, because words can lie but music cannot. Pleasant or disturbing, music is always the truth.” These profound words echoing a Sufi saying can be found on the album inlay of the Rockstar CD. The words could very well be a reflection of the musical mind of India’s greatest living composer AR Rahman, the creator of the Rockstar soundtrack. Ranbir Kapoor may be the star of the film and Imtiaz ‘Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal’ Ali, the creator, but Rahman is the driving force of this musical. Not so long ago, Cineswami had anointed Vishal-Shekhar’s RA.One album as the soundtrack of the year. Though undeniably good, it pales in comparison to Rahman’s tunes for Rockstar. This masterpiece of an album greatly benefits from some truly inspired lyrical poesy by Irshad Kamil. Mohit Chauhan has been chosen as Ranbir’s voice for the album and he delivers in spades.

Singing the Bollywood tune…
The Bollywood music industry is in a state of flux, imbibing character from everywhere, from songs of the South to rock flavours from the West. But does this cocktail work? Where does Bollywood music stand at the end of 2011?
If your ears are usually glued to FM radio, you like surfing channels and websites and you sing Hindi gaana in the shower, then you probably listen to any one popular Bollywood number more than three times every day.

ROCKSTAR: Is this the story of Ranbir Kapoor’s new film?
Imtiaz Ali’s musical hits the theatres this Friday and we heard about the story from someone in the know. Thus, in keeping with our tradition of sharing all the goss and buzz that we chance upon, here’s what we think is the story of Rockstar
This is the story of Janardhan Jakhar, a boy-next-door who harbours the ambition of being a rockstar a la his idol, Jim Morrison. He is from a humble background, but that doesn’t stop him from chasing his dream of making it big in the musical world. Thanks to his ignorance and silly attitudes, all he gets is ridicule and humiliation from everyone. Click here to read more
