An interesting throwback season is upon us. We have Salman teaming up with Barjatya after all these years and with the added rumor that this is a Raja aur Runk (prince and the pauper) remake. And then of course there’s SRK with Kajol and that title. There might be two nostalgia blockbusters around the corner! What’s even more interesting is that Salman in completing this circle has also now cornered the family audience. BB was a bridge in this sense and Barjatya of course really takes him back to his roots. If this too proves to be huge we might well see a Salman less dependent on those Telugu masala remakes (or inspirations). This would be entirely a good thing!
Perfect movie for Sonali to display her wooden acting skills…I can recall many memorable wooden acting performances in a Barjatya flick…starting with the other sonali in HSSH, and then of course Abhishek in MPKDH…last but not least, Sallu in all three of his Prem roles. Let the tradition continue.
Cheers for bringing in the traditional singers back to the fold and what a bunch is ganging up for this album. Hope there is something there from my fav bihari babu Udit Narayan too!
“The music for the film has been composed by Himesh Reshammiya with lyrics by Irshad Kamil and features 10 songs in the album. The Title Track is a duet between Sonu Nigam and Kumar Sanu. Sonu Nigam as Prem and Mohammed Irfan as Vijay performing for Salman Khan’s characters and Kumar Sanu singing for Neil Nitin Mukesh’s character Niranjan. The movie also features a romantic song between Salman Khanand Sonam Kapoor’s character Maithili that has been performed by Palak Muchhal. All the songs will be in the traditional Barjatya style. It also has two Sufi songs by Shafqat Amanat Ali and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. This album leads singers are Kumar Sanu, Palak Muchhal and Sonu Nigam with supporting singers are Mohammed Irfan, Shafqat Amanat Ali and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
The music rights of the film were sold to T-Series for an estimated total of ₹17 crore (US$2.6 million), making it the most expensive music rights deal in the Bollywood film industry at the time.
I do miss the voices of Udit and Kumar Sanu so it’ll be nice to hear from them but the real voice and ‘x factor’ in Rajshri/Salman films were Lata and then S. P. Balasubrahmanyam. Does S.P. still sing?? He was the voice of Salman songs for so many years…so many famous songs from him. After listening to today’s crappy music…the late 80’s and 90’s music sounds like Mozart and I still listen to it.
Agree. And also music directors of those earlier films contributed a lot. Melody was the buzzword then. Noise and weirdness are buzzwords as of now. Rajshris are old fashioned and Salman Khan can save them inspite of their terrible stories.
TV is the perfect medium for their stories and now even TV is experimenting with fresh themes.
Wish they had Nitin Mukesh sing in for Neil. The old man is going strong at his age. Recently, had been at a wedding where he sang non-stop from 12am to 6am!! Pretty much covered his father’s (ie Mukesh for all you babies) entire legacy of songs from the 40s onwards. The previous night there were Vishal-Shekhar who went phus in about 2.5hrs. And they kept taking breaks after every 15 mins. Amazingly Nitin Mukesh just kept going like the energizer bunny, he was so passionately engrossed in his singing, and as he stated, his gift from God to be able to sing his father’s songs.
Funny as I have complete opposite views of this. Firstly most likely Neil Nitin Mukesh won’t be having songs as he’s playing the negative role here. Also, Nitin Mukesh is a has been singer with broken voice now(thinking word to describe it). Having stamina for singing long is not the point.. V-S and other top singers are ‘cautious’ with their voices and don’t over strain it. Once your vocal cords are broken, you just end up singing for stage shows and not good fit for movie recordings. Its not even the case of only Nitin Mukesh who’s in mid 60’s but everyone from Amit Kumar(Kishore’s son) to Kumar Sanu to Shabbir Kumar, Mohammad Aziz.. so on end up singing long hours on stage now as there is no need to be cautious about their voice as their prime has past them.
Agree Bala Subrahmanayam voice and the combo connected so well for a long time esp Patther Ke Phool and that classic from Love wth Revathy …Saathiya Tune Kya kiya… I think with Baaghi the change happened and Amit Kumar sang Kaisa Lagta hai and Abhijeet had Har kasam se badi hai kasam pyaar ki…
If you are interested on SonyMix there is an hourly music program – Retweet ….something .
It has all the 90’s hit songs of Kumar Sanu , Abhijeet, Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik etc . Last weekend they had a good collection which mostly had aamir-srk-salman-akki-ajay songs.
I remember there was Jatin-Lalit doing quite well, and Ram-Laxman (for those Rajshri movies especially), Viju Shah (for Rajiv Rai movies), Rajesh Roshan (for papa Roshan’s movies as always) coming up with some good stuffs. It marked the end of the era of LP, RDB and Bappi Lahiri but they also provided some real gems towards the end of their careers. Who can forget RDB’s soundtrack for 1942- A Love Story?
remaking his father classic which is out of reach of present day audience
people remember hum aap ke hai kaun but rarely remember rajisri’s nadiya ke paar the original similarly how many will recall rajishri’s production 60’s classic raja or rank though its back 50 years later unofficially
I hope Sonam will prove wrong her detractors who cant see beyond Deepika.
Both Salman and Sonam look very good together in the latest poster. Sonam has retained some innocence and that is appealing. Deepika lost that innocent look and looks more and more like a temptress nowadays than a coy heroine.
As for age difference, will audience accept Madhuri opposite Salman here?
When Sonam Kapoor lovingly wiped off the sweat from Salman’s forehead
According to a Mumbai Mirror report, it was all about Prem at the first look launch of Salman Khan’s upcoming Diwali dhamaka, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Sonam Kapoor lovingly wiped off the sweat from her Prince Charming’s forehead and the two shared chai from the same blue mug on stage as director Sooraj Barjatya rhapsodised about their reel life romance. Sonam later recalled that when she was 14, she fought to be allowed to go on the sets of her dad’s film because he was shooting with Salman. “We spoke for an hour in the vanity van but Salman doesn’t remember that,” she pouted.
We Miss our Alka Yagnik in this movie. Instead of Palak Muchal.. Alka Yagnik & Shreya Ghoshal would have been a right choice. Alka Yagnik was one of the favrouite of Himesh. Now what happned? We are missing the duet of Kumar Sanu & Alka Yagnik..
