@sumitsharan Reminds me of Kill Bill.
@krtgrphr Realised the mistake as soon as I hit ‘Post’. Followed it up with a correction. Damn Murphy!
Woops, http://rahmania.posterous.com/ is by @_viju and @aishu_s. Sorry for the error! http://twitter.com/ohnoir/status/12234554618159104
An ode to “the phenomenon that is Aaromale”, guilty of suspending many a night. http://rahmania.posterous.com/aaromale
Amit Trivedi returns to his ‘Dev.D’ roots with the grungy and edgy ‘No One Killed Jessica’ after the polished and refined ‘Aisha’.
Hooked to the gripping ‘Aitbar’ from Amit Trivedi’s latest release, ‘No One Killed Jessica’.
Sudhir Misra’s leaked Tera Kya Hoga Johny gets a mish-mashed, genre conforming trailer http://youtu.be/JLDl1CG35t0 /via @sumitsharan
The aforementioned ‘No One Killed Jessica’ has Raj Kumar Gupta’s direction and Amit Trivedi’s music. The same team that gave us ‘Aamir’.
Not everyday you hear an interviewee begin every 2nd answer with “I disagree”. V Bhardwaj, saying it like it is: http://youtu.be/dIPBnr64oxc

Song of the day: ‘Fiqrana Ho Ke’ from Rahman’s ‘Blue’.

Faith, Babri Masjid verdict and Delhi-6. http://is.gd/fr1Ii
@sumitsharan Want to sample more tamil music? Try ‘Va Va Nilava Pudici’ from the same album or of course Rahman’s massive body of work.
‘Iragai Pole’ from ‘Naan Mahaan Alla’ is like a whirlpool. Sucks you in in an extremely trippy and satisfying manner.
Amazed at the rapid inclusion of the new Rupee symbol. Why, it’s even found its way into movie titles! http://is.gd/fkTcv
‘Pam Pa Ra’ from ‘Jhootha Hi Sahi’ sounds like a missing track from ‘Rangeela’. Love it!
http://soundcloud.com/rahmanism/ if 17th September seems too far away.
@sumitsharan Interesting. Let’s wait till it goes on the floor.
Liked Peepli [Live]? Do yourself a favour and check out the extremely underrated Anwar.

Been out of touch. Any interesting developments catch your eye recently?
Callout to ‘Aandhi’, my favourite R.D. Burman album and arguably one of his finest. Do you have a number one?
Song of the moment: “Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera, Swades Hai Tera, Tujhe Hai Pukara”, rendered by Rahman, who else.
Seven husbands, (Piggy) chopped. Bond, Ruskin Bond. Bharadwaj, Vishal Bharadwaj. Saat khoon, maaf! #didyouknow

Sudhir Mishra, Shantanu Moitra, Swanand Kirkire, Chitrangada Singh … no, I’m not talking about Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. :-)
Song of the day: ‘Main Kaun Hoon’ from ‘Lamhaa’, Mithoon’s latest. Never heard Palash Sen sing a ‘Yeh Hai Meri Kahani’ type song before.
For Teja, for Tilu, for GoGo, for Raawbert, for anginat laughs @AndazApnaApna94. Hindi comedy at its best.
@AuteurMark Good luck to you! When do we get to watch it for ourselves?
3 days to come face to face with Beera and Ragini, Ram and Raavan, Rahman and Sivan, with Mani Ratnam’s latest. Can you feel the thrill?
30 second previews of Delhii Heights: http://preview.fm/219128060
You might’ve heard Rabbi & Avengi Ja Nahin, but have you sampled the Delhii Heights album, also composed by Rabbi Bullah-Ki-Jaana Shergill?
So much to quote, so little space.
Jhini (title track) was itself composed for a little known film called Swaraj (The Little Republic). http://www.indiepixfilms.com/film/3081
‘Des Mera’ from Indian Ocean’s 2003 album ‘Jhini’ <http://preview.fm/159717034> features on the upcoming Peepli Live soundtrack.
Music: the one saving grace when stuck doing.. anything. Tabla artist Talvin Singh’s ‘Ha’ currently rescuing me from exam prep. #fusionmusic
@sukhi_c Dev.D and Aamir had some of the most refreshing compositions from the Hindi film industry in a long time. Hope Udaan has some more!
The movie: Udaan, by debutant Vikramaditya Motwane. Might remember him as Dev.D’s screenwriter. Also, Amit Trivedi.
An Indian film competed at this year’s Cannes festival, the first to do so in 7 years. It was screened for Un Certain Regard. #didyouknow

Relive the glorious crime thriller magic of old with fine candidates from the 2000s — Johnny Gaddar and Manorama Six Feet Under.
Song of the day: Indian Rain by Colonial Cousins. A lovely serenade by Leslie Lewis, backed with classical vocals by Hariharan. #fusionmusic
Heard of ‘Admissions Open’? Probably not.
Amit Trivedi’s music is worth checking out, esp ‘Roshni’ by ‘Paayaliya’ singer @ShrutipathakS.
Raajneeti, Raavan, Inception and Toy Story 3; June & July couldn’t come any sooner.
Movies, movies, मूवीज़!
