If G.one is the ubercool superhero, why name the film after a villain?!? SRK mulls over new thoughts, ideas and a belief that “The villain is so big that we need a superhero to defeat him. So I thought keeping the villain’s name as title will be a bit different.” Well, I really don’t see any logic. Also, recently he revealed that G.One and Ra.One are created from electricity and they come from a virtual world! The movie’s all about G.one’s journey of triumph over Ra.one. It’ll have the same superhero ingredients, same formula, however all these things will come with a desi-touch.

SRK is aggressively promoting, marketing the movie to a whole new level; every inch of media is filled with RA.ONE’s posters,songs, columns! An article says ‘A total of 64 products were created with the fabulous Ra.One style and art.’ Video Games, Comic Books, Toys, Clothing, Gadgets and the list go on and on!

Ok, so how big is the music?

Ra.one has OMG. 15 tracks!!! 7 of them are the regular ones, 3 instrumentals, 5 remixes out of which 4 belong to Chammak challo alone!

 ‘Chammak Challo’ of Akon, Hamsika Iyer, ‘Chammak Challo’ (Punjabi Mix) of Akon, Hamsika Iyer, ‘Chammak Challo’ (Club Mix) of Akon, Hamsika Iyer , ‘Chammak Challo’ (International) of Akon, ‘Chammak Challo’ (Remix) of Akon, Hamsika Iyer
After snooping on all the CC tracks, you would probably end up with something very vague feeling towards the number. Too much of Akon overdose…. However, the video choreographed by Ganesh Hegde is just amazing! Tamil verses by Hamsika Iyer are really good, Kareena Kapoor , the lady in the red is utterly beautiful esp when she sways her delicate fingers, it looks so elegant! Chammak Challo is such an enjoyable dance song. “The only thing I do is dance to Chammak Challo,” says SRK :)

‘Dildaara (Stand By Me)’ of Shafqat Amanat Ali, Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani, Clinton Cerejo
Heavily influenced by Ben.E.King’s ‘Stand By Me’, Dildaara is a mushy-feel good track rendered pleasantly by Shafqat Amanat Ali’s quixotic vocals.

‘Criminal’ of Akon, Vishal Dadlani, Shruti Pathak , ‘Criminal’ (Club Mix) of Akon, Vishal Dadlani, Shruti Pathak
It is a fast paced western-eastern hybrid dance number, a typical club up-tempo hit. It’s typical of Akon.. ohohohoh.. It’s crimiiiiinalllll baby booty goin’ Wop wop wop… :P

 ‘Bhare Naina’ of Nandini Shrikar, Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani
Jus Wow! It has choir from Prague Philharmonic orchestra, terrific lyrics from Panchhi Jalonvi, striking English lyrics for the background and extraordinary playback singing from Nandini Shrikar. Great composition from Vishal-shekar.

‘Right by Your Side’ of Siddharth Coutto
something in terms of Pyaree pyaree se roothna manana song …:)

‘Raftaarein’ of Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani
Modish number which makes an effort to stretch out burman’s already established unique, grunting bass singing style.

‘Jiya Mora Ghabraaye (The Chase)’ of Sukhwinder Singh, Vishal Dadlani
Mix of Eerie,trippy,electronic,scruffy grunge with a quantity of classical notes from sukhwinder. Probably this track occurs background when R.one chases G.one ?!? (when g.one’s jiya is petrified, stupefied??)

‘Comes The Light (Theme)’ (Instrumental), ‘I’m On (Theme)’ (Instrumental), ‘Song of The End (Theme)’ – (Instrumental)
All the themes are neatly performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. These are distinctive superhero themes that very much strive to sound and be cool just like Hollywood counterparts .

For Vishal-Shekar, Ra.One is their best ever music compilation, they’ve collaborated with a variety and have experimented with different styles of music. Ra.one music has freshness in it, more of a commercial type rather than strictly superhero-style, which is obvious because the G.one’s Ra.one is a Desi Superhero film.

My Picks: Bhare Naina, Chammak Challo, Dildaara
