    Rahman is like God: ‘Rockstar’ singer Harshdeep Kaur

    Katiya karoon singer Harshdeep Kaur on AR Rahman, Ranbir Kapoor and Rockstar
    Not many people associated with showbiz are able to maintain their humility amidst all the fanfare and glamour. But Sufi singer Harshdeep Kaur has been able to do that with ease. Having won a reality show when he was very young – MTV Video Gaga at just 16 – Harshdeep has seen it all, been there, done that, thrown away the T-shirt. Performing at live shows or recording in a studio for a film or her album…it’s all part of her life now. Her latest song, Katiya Karoon from Rockstar, is a chartbuster. From being a topper in college to performing for AR Rahman more often than she can count, the 24-year-old is one of the high notes in Indian music today. But she has no airs about it. What keeps her so level-headed…is it just the Rahman effect? Click here to read more

    ROCKSTAR Music Review: AR Rahman is a rockstar

    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.

    ROCKSTAR Movie Review: Ranbir Kapoor excels, Nargis Fakhri is promising

    ROCKSTAR Movie Review: Ranbir Kapoor excels, Nargis Fakhri is promising

    Director Imtiaz Ali won half the battle when he got AR Rahman to compose the music for his film. Ranbir Kapoor helps him conquer the other half
    So you’ve seen the promos and think you know what the film’s about? Actually, there’s a lot more to it. Rockstar is not just a journey of an aspiring musician. It also charts the main lead’s spiritual path and highlights that just making it big in life doesn’t lead to inner happiness. Inspired by the writings of Sufi poet Rumi, the film is layered and delivers the goods without getting boring. Click here to read more
