Aladin : A quick review

This is one such movie Indian cinema has never seen. A Clear winner of Aladin, is its SFX. Blood and sweat has been put over it and it really shows. Not at any point it looks overdone. What complements the movie more is its perfect casting and characterisation. Each and every actor is cast so well that you can never imagine anyone else playing any character.

Music Review: Blue (2009)

4.0 stars out of 5 Music by AR Rahman Lyrics by Abbas Tyrewala, Mayur Puri, Raqeeb Alam So after Terabytes of reviews and thoughts about A R Rahman’s first post-Oscar soundtrack… [oops, did I forget to put TM in Oscar?? =P] I finally declare that I am liking the soundtrack of BLUE gradually. Yes it sounds little odd cause most of the reviews / thoughts I’ve read, are boasting about the music. But I was dizzy when the promos started to pour in. Music did not sound quite ‘Rahman’ish. But after getting the soundtrack on my Ipod, I am liking it with each...
