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' amongst others!
With the album meeting with a global success, there are hardly any minuses that one can cite for 'Gangster'
'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 oriented audience
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 lost
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 Sanam'!
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
