4 Very Good

Ra.One

Indeed, this is a BIG one. SRK, Vishal-Shekhar and Akon ... couldn't have been bigger! The album lives up to the hype whether it is Akon's Chamak Chalo or Shauqat Amanat Ali's Dildaara. The latter sounds great, though it does sound like Shauqat's earlier songs. I love Right By Your Side by Sid Coutto. It is such a brilliant composition and sounds very different from what V-S have composed in the past. Raftaarein has an R D Burman flavor but this Vishal Dadlani rendered song soon takes on its own and emerges into another favorite. There's Bhare Naina and Jiya Mora which are also good numbers. The theme pieces are also brilliantly composed. All in all, one of the best and most commercial soundtracks of this year. Vishal-Shekhar have done it once again ...
