Halkat Jawani bySalim Merchant and Sulaiman Merchant, sung by Sunidhi Chauhan or Saaiyaan by my fave Rahat Fateh Ali Khan?
Khwahishein is beautiful too. Composed by Salim-Sulaiman and exquisitely sung by Shreya Goshal…
Beautiful melodies. This is what I love about Bollywood films. Later on, when I recall them, I remember them by their music. I start humming the songs, on my way to work, in the shower. sometimes I wake up to a Bollywood melody and it makes me want to see the movie again.
this never happens when I start thinking of Hollywood films, even though some may have a good soundtrack. It’s an irony that what I disliked most about Bollywood movies initially, now I love most. I look forward to the moment when the songs get released prior to the movies themselves.
Seeing a film for the first time is like going on a blind date. Bollywood lets you take an advance peek. And when you then come to meet that song again on the silver screen, it’s like meeting a friend.
Bollywood has perfected the art of integrating songs in a movie, may it be a daydream, a memory, fast forwarding or backtracking in time. Writing a song into a film is a wonderful cinematographic and narrative tool that Hollywood ought to rediscover.
I am definitely going to buy the soundtrack of Heroine.
