a) This is the first YRF project in 2008 and comes straight after double-bill disappointments in the form of Aaja Nachle and Laaga Chunari Mein Daag
b) Vishal and Shekhar have a music release more than six months after 2007's biggest success (both film-wise as well as musically) - Om Shanti Om
c) The film stars four top-line actors who have been having a great box office run - Akshay Kumar (5 successful films in a row), Saif Ali Khan (Race), Anil Kapoor (Race, Welcome) and Kareena Kapoor (Jab We Met)
d) Last but definitely not the least - absolutely nothing is known about the film's plot. No wonder, curiosity is simply killing!
Taking these factors into consideration (especially the last one), as a listener, you have absolutely no idea about what to expect from the soundtrack.
Is it going to be a full-on rock album?
Is it going to have 'bhangra' beats holding prominence since the word 'tashan' originates from North India?
Is it going to be full on 'dhinchaak' since Tashan has Vishal-Shekhar composing for a hardcore commercial project?
