    Musical masterpiece? Lol…its not even good…forget mastepiece!

  2. rowdy

    This is the proof that JTHJ music is not appreciated and is well below expectations.
    So they have taken such desperate measures by promoting the not so popular music on the merit of big names…
    A big let down by A.R. Rahman..

  3. jacksparrow

    barring jhalla. album is shit

  4. Khan.1

    JTHJ has easily the best album of this year with 4 awesome songs Heer, title song, ishq shava and challa. Saans was avg untill SHAH said yesterday dat it was his fav.
    Only Jiya re is a disappointment

    1. ank_16n

      khan.1—-Songs are beyond Listening….!!!

    its nt masterpiece bt is easily best of d year.. Esp heer is super awesome..
    If this music was of amir,akshay or salman’s movie, here in ng every one must have been saying its best experimental music bt unfortunately its of srk movie so acord to ng its crap of decade..
    Bt mark my words al of u tht ths crap music wil win hearts in cinemas,money at boxoffice nd awards 4 ar rehman

  6. Harsha

    Masterpiece? Seriously? with just an average song like Challa worth very less repeat listening, this album is not even close to be called Good.

  7. Rockyy

    Album is nt masterpiece i wud say but amongst the top 5 albums of the year..

  8. Tashan

    hahaha… saans main saans mili and mushq shava hahaha masterpiece… even an elephant’s fart wud sound better than this album…

    worst of the year imo

    only challa n heer can be called okay to decent, rest is just garbage.

  9. khiladi

    Roflllll Desperate SRK PR as usual agar yeh masterpiece album hai to Maya Memsaab was family movie :D
    Only one song challa is good that also without its video in which SRK is looking too old. Rest whole album is crap.

  10. Dr.Nisheet

    if you call this good songs….what are songs like Bichdan and HALKI HALKI KHUMARIYAAN….they are too good…..just listen this you will feel ashamed to call JTHJ songs even average….

  11. FS

    3masters n their musical junkyard, sunte raho jab tak hai kaan ;)

  12. diva

    It seems Jab Tak hai Jaan album is burning lot of people here. If not masterpiece then almost all of it songs are ruling every music chart and are chartbusters much better than Chinta ta ta and your Po Po songs.

  13. FS

    All because of rahman it is “challa” or else Gulzar had it as “chakka” the epitome of JTHJ :P

  14. suprabh

    JTHJ music is a clear case of legendary artists coming together to give out a dud. Here’s the thing, the soundtrack is actually not bad as many anti-fans may term it but the fact of the matter is, its actually not good either… Yes the possibility of not meeting the gigantic expectation of Rahman-gulzar combo could be a reason but honestly even if for one moment you remove those names, the songs are still plain average.

    challa- a decent to good song. I feel it could have been better but its missing the typical rahman magic that makes the listeners connect with his work.

    saans- the worst song of the album and possibly of the decade- both lyrically and musically. (Having said that I dont mean chintata or po po songs are better but those songs are too useless to be even considered for comparison…)

    Jiya re Jiya re– very very average song–reminds one of rahman’s old Nanna re nanna re re..barso re megha megha.. (Guru) which was another irritating number

    Heer – A decent song and those who are calling it amazing and what not should go and listen to punjabi albums especially songs by jaspindar narula..there are many songs such as this and this one just doesnt top them.

    Title track- I havent heard it yet so no comments.

  15. aravind_66

    just saw mtv unplugged ar rahman episode…the ‘nenjukkul’ song from his next mani ratnam’s tamil movie was beautiful(even more beatifully sung by shakti)….now that’s the rahman i know…not the rahman who composed jthj which is strictly avg….

  16. danish

    though his films have had very good music yash chopra is not a musician and he is dead so i will leave him alone.

    as for the fraud master A R Rahman, the less said the better. after 20 years in bollywood its difficult to recall 20 great songs from the media made paper tiger. bappi lahiri has a better record anyday.

    that brings me to gulzar. it pains me to write this but though gulzar has disappointed a few times in the last 5 years, this is the 1st time he has churned out something ‘shameful’. i am the biggest gulzar fan and i put him amongst the greatest legends of bollywood but i refuse to believe he penned these mediocrities himself.

  17. suprabh

    danish, here are some great songs by AR Rahman, there are many more than the list that follows.

    1) Tu Hi re
    2) Roja Jaaneman

    5) Tanha Tanha yahan pe jeena
    6) aawara bhanwre
    7) Taal se taal Mila
    8) Nahi saamne
    9) chaiyya chaiyya
    10) Ramta Jogi
    11) Khamosh raat
    12) Sunta hai mera khuda
    13) Que Sera sera
    14) chale chalo
    15) ghanan ghanan
    16) Raadha kaise na jale

    32)Tu hi toh meri dost hai
    33) Tu muskura
    34)Kaise Mujhe tum mil gayi
    35)Genda Phool

  18. danish

    @SUPRABH – 1-10 are definitely classics. so also paathshaala, luka chhupi, tu hi to meri dost hai and one song from veer (i cant recall i right now) and off course genda phool. thats only 15 songs in 20 years. apar from that u have just made a list of ALL rahman songs, including teh most forgettable. in which world o humdum and neem neem shahd shada classics or great?

    and which song is this chupke se lag ja gale? i havent even heard of it.

    and calling maula or ye jo des hai mera great songs betrays ur lack f sense of music, nothing else.

  19. suprabh

    danish,

    Chupke se lag ja gale is from saathiya (doston se jhooti moothi doosron ka naam leke, teri meri baatein karna)
    I didnt mention any maula song
    which reminds me , i missed mentioning Piya Haji Hali–another great song

    also other great songs

    Ae Ajnabi tu bhi Kabhi
    O paalanhare
    Bombay theme
    Humma Humma
    Jaage hain
    Boondon se baatein

    I do find, Tu muskura, Mera rang de basani chola, rang de bsanti great

    P.s> my music sensibilities are not great as yours. :)

  20. Action

    @Suprabh Imran Khan’s debut film is JTYJN and music composer is non other than AR Rahman.Isse achchi opening kya ho sakti hai ek ‘uvarte’ hue kalakaar ke liye.
    What is your take on singers Zubeen Garg and Papon?Ye dono Assam(my home) se belong karta hai.

  21. Khan.1

    Lol this is a perfect example of akki fans dumbness. They are calling it a PR article when a fellow akki fan has made this post. Ha ha

  22. Engineer

    ishq shava is d bst song of albm…be it picturisation,music,choreography,lyrics and dance performance by srkat,chemistry is awsm…

  23. Engineer

    the albm is not as good as cmpared to the previous masterpieces of ar rahman bt it is undoubtdly the bst of the year..

  24. Engineer

    only 7 days to go…
    Jab tak hai jaan

  25. danish

    @definitely suprabh u cant have as refined music sense as me. for that u need to listen to beethoven, mozart, bach, bade ghulam ali khan (not the ghazal singer) kishori amonkar, shobha gurtu (not shubha mudgal) pt bhimsen joshi, lata mangeshkar, salil chaudhary, sd/rd burman, khaiyaam, and not a r rahman. and then they say modesty is my middle name!

    having said that u r just making random list of rahman songs and cxalling all of them great wen most are not even good. the only two other songs that i can think apart from the 15 mentioned above are ‘mast mahol’ from fiza and urvashi urvashi from humse hai muqabla. another 3 forgotten ones wud make it 20 great songs in 20 years. which is wat i said originally.

    p.s. one of the remaining 3 can be pappu cant dance saala.

  26. suprabh

    true danish,

    I haven’t heard of any of

    beethoven, mozart, bach, bade ghulam ali khan, kishori amonkar, shobha gurtu, pt bhimsen joshi, lata mangeshkar, salil chaudhary, sd/rd burman, khaiyaam

    Actually I dont even know who these people are.

    Beethoven and Mozart sound as if they are people from Europe, but who knows they can be from Aligarh..as I said im just too immodest

    who is Bade Ghulam Ali khan ? Is he man or woman?..sounds like a classical singer whose thumris are rather famous..but…how can I say I havent heard any of his/her work…I am just too immodest

    I should not even dare talk about kishori amonkar and shobta gurtu..because I am not good enough to talk about them considering I dont know who they are..I have only heard Anu malik and Ar Rahman..and also i am just too immodest

    Who are Sd/Rd burman– are they from Burma? Or should I say Mayanmar..well who knows..I just make random lists..and as I said Im just immodest

    Is bhimsen joshi related to Sunil Joshi? Well how can someone like me tell..I dont even know what classical music is.. i always though dhinka chika was classically complete..well in case you missed..Im just immodest.

  27. danish

    @suprabh – so, as a tau (an an affectionate adress to an elderly man from haryana) wud say – ae re! jab tere bas ki na thi to bhida hi kyun tha?

    1. suprabh

      Very good Danish..excellent reply….

  28. danish

    @suprabh – i knew u wud love it! after all u loved the ‘chup ke se lag ja gale’ song from god-know-which-film, didnt u?

    1. suprabh

      danish ab kya kar sakte hain– tumhe apne fav gulzaar ke gaane hi nahi pata toh…aap kitne modest jo hain

  29. rafee

    Suprabh bro. did you watched skyfall?

    1. suprabh

      No Rafee, skyfall is releasing in US on Nov 9

  30. rafee

    Also Ted and Paranormal Activity 4 ?

    1. diva

      I have watched TED . Its fun sweet film (specially if you’re familiar with the much loved cartoon series of his) also sentimental in the end. 3.5/5

  31. danish

    @suprabh – i like artists for their work. if gulzar writes an inane song, why wud i bother to remember it. i had found the songs of saathiya rather mediocre (yes lyrics) but was relived that he got back in the groove with bunty aur bably. the bad influnece off course was a r rahman. gulzar has done his worst work for a r rahman (saathiya, yuvraj, jab tak hai gxxnd) dil se perhaps is the only exception where he wrote excellent lyrics for rahman.

    and i mistakenly credited rahman above for a beautiful song in veer which was by sajid wajid.

    1. suprabh

      Kyun nahi Danish, I totally unerstand your reply…Jo gaana aapko achha na lage woh toh inane hi hoga..after your music sensibilities are so high..

      btw you may want to keep a log of your mistakes,,,mast mahol (or Mehboob mere which was the original title) was not composed by Rahman,,it was by Anu Mallik.

      aapki music sensibilities sar aankhon par..dhinka chika (composed in raag Gadbadi)

  32. Dj

    Danish..Suprabh ko kuch bhi kah lo but don’t say anything to Chupke se lag ja gale song. Have you heard the lyrics of this song. For me Saathiya album is one of the best in BW history. Even that Manglamyam song is my caller tune and it is over 10 year. Only chori-pe-Chori song is a little bit let down.

    As far as JTHJ music is concerned it is a dud gor me. Yash chopra ke Faasle or Parampare jaisi filmon ki yaad dila di.

  33. Serenzy

    Music Album is ‘Miles’ away from being a Classic Masterpiece.

    Keeping Aside the HUGE Expectations, Even than the Album does Not Even Match Upto Something Like Chalte Chalte, VZ , OSO etc.

    Only, Challa and Heer are Good but ISHQ SHAVA was the Best Song from the Album.

  34. danish

    @suprabh – yes u are right. and the proof of the fact that this the saathiya song u mentined is inane is here.

    its never telecast on tv, may be rarely. since there is no published data on this i wil take youtube, which is more ‘rahman territory’ than say an annu malik territory of sajid -wajid territory.

    well chupke se yutube clips (4 of them_ have roughly 4-5 lakh hits

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAlPgrm0vr4 – 259063

    a similar non popular/slow song from veer – surili by sajid wajid has 24 lakh hits on just one clip.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjSOKZ4juzs – 2480276

    annu malik’s slow song (i am deliberately avoiding comparisons to maashaallah) sau dard hain has 36 lakh hits on two clips

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4VPfNSQVrQ

    annu maliks flop film with flop musn and a starless vehicle filhaal had a song ‘le chalein dliyon mein tumhe hum’. well its top clip has roughly half the number of hits of the saathiya classic u mention.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4NtQApTNQ0

    and all this in youtube, the rahman territory. i am not even counting how many cds did the truck drivers buy for saathiya. i know the answer is – none.

    and since u belive truck drivers have no say in selecting a classic, i have gone by youtube.

    give me any scitific proof of this saathiya song being a classic.

    or u must agree that anything (song, film) u like is a classic.

    annu maliks flop film with flop musn and a starless vehicle filhaal had a song ‘le chalein dliyon mein tumhe hum’. well its top clip has roughly half the number of hits of the saathiya classic u mention.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4NtQApTNQ0 roughly 2 lakh on soem clips

  36. danish

    @dj – it doesnt matter wat chup ke se song means to you. i will only go by either my view on it or , since i respect democracy, the majority view. which i have shown in the above comment. saathiya song chup kese is the most inane, wannabe and forgettable song. at best its at par with filhaal songs of annu malik.

  37. suprabh

    danish,

    bahut achha….kaafi entertainment ho gaya..thank you sir.

  38. danish

    @suprabh – entertainment ke liye kuchh bhi karega!

    but i wish saathiya song had more entertainment to kam se kam 1 million his to aate 11 saal mein.

    1. suprabh

      very good danish…superlogic and I hail your music sensibilities.. Dhinka Chika
