THE UNBEATABLE ... Rahman magic ... Ghajini ! 

Yes long awaited Ghajini ... is out on stores ! 

The movie has already dolloped its share of anxiety for many reasons and one most important for all music buffs A.R.Rahman is 'THE reason'. Yes as usual all fans would await eagerly with their heart and ears open to let that song grow in them ... And morever when it is a music made in connection to Aamir Khan , Oh! then expectations soar. 

As for Ghajini it sure is a movie that has lot of expectations especially after the original Tamil version of Surya / Asin being a super duper box office rocker !  Lyrics is by Prasoon Joshi and it is good .. :) Well actually , the guzarish and kaise mujhe is good . the other lyrics are just ok . . 

The one min trailer song of Ghajini was surely a great hit added to the amazing physique and super stills of Aamir . The six pack abs really did that and the song 'Guzarish seemed to have rocked even with the 1 min trailer .. really hummable !! 

Now with the release as usual here is my review .. 

There are in total 6 tracks with one being an instrumental . 

The tracks are sung rendered by Javed Ali (Jashne bahare..) , Suzzane , Shreya , Benny Dayal and Karthik the happening singer from South . 

1.Guzharish is one of the best in the album . Sonu Nigam has rendered a small humming in the beginning . Javed Ali really has rocked ! It is great to feel that charm in his voice and he has a great style of  singing which was really evident in the Jashn - e - Bahare too...

Lyrics for this song is great .

2. Behka is the track which is stylish , may be that is the term one could relate . Saxaphone used in this track  adds an enchanting feel for the same . Karthik has rendered it beautifully . I am sure each one would fall in love with this track for sure. It is a real tough one to immediately sing but surely a super song ..

3. Kaise Mujhe  is a melody number and just like the Tu meri dost hai from Yuvvraaj  , Benny Dayal and Shreya have again paired up for this nice number. A superb song and it takes you with the flow . The backing vocals are by Clinton , Dominique , Vivenne.

Benny is blessed to get such a superb break with these songs in Yuvvraaj and Ghajini . 

The same song is also instrumental .very soothing one. 

Lyrics of this song is just great . 

4. Aye Bachchu  by Suzzane is a fast kind of number . She has  a 'josh' in her voice and this stylish youthful number is foottapping and would be loved by all who would want to dance to the tune of music !! The song is easily likable ,. but even if you dont appreciate it , i am sure you will start loving it the more and more you listen to the same.Suzzane really has given her best and Rahman's music weaves a magic

5.Latto .. is a different track . I guess the best fast beat song tracks like the Aye bachchu . But it has a feel of a remix style . It is rendered by Shreya and in this there has been some additional special programming effects/ or the computer effect which makes it sound less like Shreya . Yet it is a small , easy and fast number. But a super number and actually i just loved this album just like all others so far from Rahman !!

One thing that i didnt like in this album is ARR has not lend his voice for any song  not even a small portion and even the album cd doesnt have his pic ! 

All lyrics for this movie is available in Rhythmic notes , my  musical blog . :) 

So dont wait .. Just check out this cool , great album and sink in to this beautiful journey of Rahman's music . 

Till then tada ! :)

Bbye ! 

Take care ...

Day 307: Happy Chingam !

Today is Chingam 1 (to be read as onnu). It is the new month according to the lunisolar calendar. This month is also called as Avani and Shravana. So, why is this month special?  This month marks the beginning of the festival season back home and the it is fun to have small celebrations through the months until  mid- December. It is also the month of Onam (Harvest festival in Kerala).

The first festival we have this month is the 'sacred thread' changing ceremony for men/boys who wear that. This is followed by usually the birthday of little Krishna and then the elephant-head god, Ganesha. Then comes Onam followed by the beautiful month of Navaratri or Durga Pooja. So, the big set of festival season is here and here is a wish to all of you on Chingam 1. Wishing you all blessed and excellent months ahead. Have fun!

Day 315 : What's on your bucket list?

Bucket List. A term that has become popular much after the famous movie with the same title in 2007. The term would have probably taken after the euphemism 'kick the bucket', which was again popularized in the movie, 'It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world'. The 2007 movie was a massive hit and how would it be not? It had Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in the lead. The term was meant to have a list of things you wish you can do before you leave this world.

It is like a goal list that can evolve as you grow and change perspectives in life. I used to have a wish list that worked as a to-do list mostly like a work list for short-term goals. However, off late, I have decided to make one and keep it as an ever evolving list.

The first one on my list as of now (that was from the past too) is to get my biggest degree in life. Hopefully I will tick that one off my list soon.

Do share your thoughts on your list and how do you plan on getting it all checked out.

Love,
M

Day 57: Manjadikuru (The Little Red Seeds)

Do you guys know about Manjadikuru ? They are the little red seeds. For anyone who is from God's own country or is familiar with Kerala wouldn't have missed this. There is something special about holding them, playing with these seeds. Usually, most homes will have a small 'uruli' or a bowl filled with these beautiful and shiny red seeds. In most Krishna temples in Kerala, you will come across a small 'uruli' with Manjadikuru. People believe that it is lucky to take these seeds with both hands and just play with them when you visit a temple. Some even leave a couple of coins as they do this.  In Guruvayoor (my favorite place), you can see a big 'uruli' with manjadi. 

So, why and how did this become prevalent ? It goes back to a story from the past. Many years ago, there lived a poor lady in northern Kerala. She was an ardent devotee of Lord Guruvayoorappan (Krishna) and always wanted to visit Guruvayoor.  She could not afford to buy any offering (nived…
