A couple of notes on the film. The first Hollywood production house Bollywood film that received good press in the NY Times at this link:
The studio behind “Saawariya,” Sony Pictures Entertainment, is the first in a wave of American studios to produce their own kaleidoscopic Bollywood musicals. The American studios are keen to make money in India, but in a nation where $19 of every $20 spent at the box office goes to indigenous films, the studios are deciding to join Bollywood, not conquer it with their American-made fare.
Fair enough. Initial reactions to the soundtrack lead me to comparing this to the soundtrack of Jaan-e-Mann (2006) starring Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Preity Zinta and Anupam Kher. I'll have a more extensive music review later on.
For now, suffice it to say that this is one soundtrack to cherish. And one movie to look forward to.
