Now is the time for the album sales
to shoot further with the premier of 'Where's The Party Tonight'. A
lot rests on this track that is expected to consolidate on the
super success of 'Mitwa'!
With great power comes great
expectation! The same holds good for the music of KANK that is been
seen with a hawk's eye ever since it enjoyed a world premier. No
wonder the makers would be nervous to see the audience reactions to
their 'item-song' 'Where's Is The Party Tonight'!
The song VCD of the film is out
which means that the album would continue to be in news till the
time another biggie from YRF arrives
Would the music VCD at the least
would be publicized better than the audio CD?
Though Bhatts, Hashmi and HMV have
always enjoyed each other's company while delivering hits after
hits, the man who has benefited most by the super success of the
album is Pritam! One of the most in-demand composers today, he is
being signed on by makers like Milan Luthria for 'Hat-trick'
With the album meeting with a global
success, there are hardly any minuses that one can cite for
'Krrish' survives the scare from the
release of the new albums; and that too by a big margin as Rajesh
Roshan melodies continue to sell well, especially after the super
success of the film
The album supports itself on two
pillars - 'Beedi' and title song 'Omkara'. Incidentally it's the
rustic flavor of both the songs that has enabled the album to
straight away debut at No. 5. Impressive!
Beyond the 'two pillars', remaining
songs are situational and are meant for a fixed set of class
For the first time since its entry,
the album has slid down by a place. Still the sales are remarkable
and it's a matter of time before the album marches up back in the
Top-5. A surprise winner of the season, PKSE is a sweet success for
PNC and Pritam after a disheartening outing in 'Ankahee'
Mainly targeted at young crowds
One of the best albums of the first
half of 2006, 'Ahista Ahista' is surprisingly hanging around
towards the bottom of the charts. There are hopes though that the
sales will zoom after the film's release since the look of 'Ahista
Ahista' with new pairing of Abhay-Soha looks interesting!
None. It is the best that Reshammiya
fans could have wanted. This is why one is surprised why the album
is still not at the top!
One and Only Himesh
Another set of best songs that
Reshammiya fans could have ever wanted. ABA, Aksar, Aap Ka Surroor,
Ahista Ahista, HDKG, PHP, TDH and CCK - it has just about every hit
song from these films
The album hangs on at the bottom
though the film releases today. The music, inspite of being good,
hasn't really grown so far. The fate of the film should now decide
the course of the album sales
Since there hasn't been much gap
between the album and the movie release, if the film turns out to
be a turkey [that doesn't seem to be a possibility though], the
album would go with it and hence a good soundtrack would be
Finally! After being on the stands
for more than 3 weeks, 'The Killer' has finally found a place for
itself in the charts. Arriving at a snail's pace, this Sajid-Wajid
score has at least two good numbers - 'Teri Yaadon Mein', 'O
Remaining numbers are ordinary.
Credit to the choreographers/directors for a lavish look and
stylish presentation that has made even the most ordinary number
look good on screen
