Have u caught the Swades music? ...no?!!!! then go to www.raaga.com asap. A.R. Rehman is in full form. There is not an iota of doubt that the guy is a genius. Some people accuse him of being repetative & cast aspersions on his talent . Well...then compare him to his contemporaries. Just see what Anu Malik did to Asoka. Asoka music was good...no doubt.. but it DID NOT have the period feel to it. Lagaan had. Swades though is not a period film. It is set in todays times right from an Indian village to NASA( wonder which IIT ShahRukh graduated from to go to NASA)...and the village songs do have an earthy touch. My favourite is Pal Pal hai Bhari. U enjoy the song more if u have a look at it's setting. Click here for the Ramleela pic from Swades.
NB: Did u know that the voiceover for Ravan in this song has been done by director Ashutosh Gowarikar!
