With the much hyped music of JODHAA AKBAR failing to create much of an impression amongst hardcore Bollywood music lovers, all eyes are now set on Pritam to carry on the great run he enjoyed in 2007.
In recent times, except for SUNDAY and to an extent SUPERSTAR, none of the other albums have made much of a dent at the music stands. In fact Pritam's own MY NAME IS ANTHONY GONSALVES along with music from films released recently like SHOWBIZ, HALLA BOL and BOMBAY TO BANGKOK have all been royal failures.
There was much expected from A R Rahman to set 2008 on a fast track with JODHAA AKBAR but that too hasn't happened so far. However, there are expectations of some momentum building up as the movie gets near to release with an extensive promotional campaign being planned.
Till then, one looks forward to Pritam to churn some entertaining tracks. Expectations are that his RACE, the music of which arrives later this month, would indeed be 'racy' enough and get the foot tapping, as evident from the title song which is currently on.
Later, in the month of February, soundtrack of JANNAT would also be released. The music is expected to be special here since it reunites Bhatts and Pritam after a hat trick of successful scores in the form of GANGSTER, WOH LAMHE and AWARAPAN. Incidentally, both RACE and JANNAT would be seeing a theatrical release on the same day i.e. 21st March.
Some of the other films in the coming days for which Pritam has composed music are HAR PALL, SINGH IS KINNG, EK - THE POWER OF ONE and BHRAM.
