The Shahrukh Khan and Jaideep Sahni magic has worked big time with both their films, Chak de India and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, casting their spell on the audience. On both the occasions, the songs wrote by Jaideep and picturised on Shahrukh Khan went on to become an anthem for the music lovers. Be it the title track of Chak de India or the most recent phenomenon, "Haule Haule", the songs have gripped the nation and have contributed in no uncertain terms to the super success of the films.
Much in a similar manner, Shahrukh Khan's colleague, the perfectionist Aamir Khan shares a fruitful relationship with lyricist Prasoon Joshi. Their association has yielded bountiful results in the form of memorable songs of Fanaa, Rang De Basanti and Taare Zameen Par. Music buffs still love "Chand Sifarish", the title track of Rang De Basanti and of course, the award winning "Maa".
However, the songs and the lyrics of Ghajini (barring "Guzarish") have not received universal acclaim, as was the norm for an Aamir Khan, A R Rahman and Prasoon Joshi combo. This was once again a much similar reaction to SRK and Jiadeep's RNDBJ album received when it released. But SRK and Jaideep have proved the skeptics wrong and the response to all the songs in the theatres is a live proof of the fact that it's not the critics but the paying audience who decides.
So, let's wait and watch whether the Aamir-Prasoon jodi will be able to emulate the success of the SRK-Jaideep jodi. And for that we do not have to wait long as Ghajini has already arrived in the theatres to a super response.
