      RA.One music rating: 7 out of 10(Akhtar Ali wrote on Sep 18 2011 12:44PM)

      Shah Rukh Khan… one of the great marketers of his movies…

      When he started promoting Ra One, he got several criticisms.

      Some said Superhero & Sci-fi concepts don’t work in India, see Abhishek Bachchan’s Drona, Punit isar’s Superman or Harman Baweja’s 2050. But on the other hand we also have Krishh & Robot…
      Some said Promos are looking like a copy of Krishh, Robot etc… some said, SRK doesn’t look like superhero…
      and some said dancing and singing superhero, Shahrukh is making fun of himself…

      But even after this much of huge disparagement SRK opted a best skill he has apart from acting; the ability to promote… the first step: he called Akon to India to sing for him… then after some time, CHAMMAK CHALLO was leaked on internet… and believe me it is one of the most downloaded songs till date…

      SRK, Anubhav Sinha, Vishal & Shekhar were very clear about the subject and theme of the movie… they knew, romantic songs are the forte of SRK but it is not a need of time… if you want to promote a sci-fi… you must need a music which attracts the listeners more…

      Let’s see what variety RA ONE offers us…

      Vishal Shekhar Handled the music department and for a different and difficult topic, they offer us something different…

      1. CHAMMAK CHALLO… previously we have heard CHAMMAK CHHALLO ZARA DHIRE CHALLO, Sunny Deol performed on it in the movie Ajay… but this Chammak Challo by SRK and AKON is just a heartthrob… undoubtedly a best song of the season… Vishal Dadlani wrote the Akon’s version and Hansika Iyer’s part was later added by Niranjan Iyengar… all and all, both the two versions are fabulous….

      2. DILDARA… voices of Shafqat Amanat Ali, Vishal, Shekhar and Clinton… and lyrics by Kumar… again a decent number… this song gives a soft, romantic and tender touch to the album… Shafqat being a lead singer done a great job… and the words of Kumar also creates the magic in the air…

      3. CRIMINAL…. Is a fast track sung by Akon, Vishal and Shruti Pathak… written by Vishal and Kumar… The music is foot tapping and a very well coordinated song… A fantastic fusion of Indian and International styles of music and song…

      4. BHARE NAINA… a sad kind of touch… this song also has an Indo Classical – Soft Rock fusion… and it takes to some different mood… the lead voice of Nandini Srikar comes to your ears smoothly and reaches to the heart… Vishal & Shekhar in chorus also create the feel of Rock in this sad song… Pancchi Jalonvi did a good work by Pen….

      5. RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE… sung Siddharth Cutto… an ambitious song… written by Anvita Dutt Guptan…a kind of good song but not a great as per the album…

      6. RAFTAARIEN… written and sung by Vishal Dadlani…this song will remind you the compositions of two legendary music directors… A.R. Rehman’s OHH SAYO from Slumdog Millionaire… and R.D.Burman’s Singing style…

      7. JIYA MORA GHABRAAYE… written by Anubhav Sinha and Vishal Dadlani, but the plus point of the song is SUKHVINDER SINGH’s Classical and soulful touch to the song…and a great fusion of Indo Classical and Rock… Vishal Dadlani also supported well with his rap and rock….

      Apart from these, there are three different themes; I’m on, Comes the light & Song of the end… hope all the three will go good with movie pace….

      The Remixes of CHAMMAK CHALLO and CRIMINAL are also well paced and offer you a variety…


      All and all, the makers of Ra One has targeted the new party-freak generation as their listeners, people who love to visit clubs, pubs and discs and created the music as per that…


      In simple words…

      For me, Ra One has an International standard of Music created with Indian touch…

      Go for it, if you like a variety of some dancing, loud, soft, Indo Classical and Rock music together…

      For me Picks of the album CHAMMAK CHALLO & DILDARA though BHARE NAINA, RAFTAARIEN and JIYA MORA are also good…

      P.S. Opinions differ persona to persona, so kindly listen it once and then judged it... Though if u don't like it, but u will hear it everywhere soon...
