Why I will avoid IIFA Awards 2007 at any cost - Part 2 . . . . . . . . . . .
In my last post, I discussed regarding the writing department awards. Now I'll discuss music.
(THE FOLLOWING OPINIONS ARE SOLELY PERSONAL OPINION AND THEY ARE NOT INTENDED TO HURT/ OFFEND ANYONE)
Sameer – Dhoom 2 – Crazy Kiya Re
Prasoon Joshi – Fanaa – Chand sifarish
Javed Akhtar - Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna - Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna
Gulzar – Omkara – Beedi
Prasoon Joshi – Rang De Basanti - Ru Baroo
Dhoom 2 : Again Dhoom 2? ufff! Gimme a break. The lyrics are stupid, tasteless, foolish, funless, and ..................to infinity
Fanaa and KANK - Both of them definitely deserve without a bias.
Omkara / RDB - Not bad at all. They are good.
Who Deserved too:
ADITYA DHAR, VIJAY KUMAR, SWARTMIKA MISHRA - Banjar - Kabul Express
Best Music Direction
Pritam – Dhoom 2 – Crazy Kiya Re
Shankar Ehsaan Loy – Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna – Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna
Rajesh Roshan – Krrish – Dhoop Nikalti hai Jahan Se
Vishal Bharadwaj – Omkara – Beedi
A.R. Rehman – Rang De Basanti – Ru Baroo
D:2 / Krrish - As said earlier, it is "defintely" necessary to include a Blockbuster / Big Banner/ Hhhrrrithiiiikh Rooooosshan film in every category to
raise the required money for holding the event.
KANK/ RDB - Definitely both of them deserve. I'd give a slight edge to RDB for its unique-ness.
Omkara - Again a good album.
Who deserved to be there:
PRITAM - Gangster (Albeit plagiarized, it's damn rockin' and miles better than D2) RAGHAV SACHAR - Kabul Express (definitely surprising, melodious, no-nonsense tunes from a young composer) JATIN - LALIT - Fanaa (last album from the duo, it's awesome) SHANKAR - EHSAAN - LOY - Don (The remakes were not bad. Aaj Ki Raat, Main Hoon Don just rocked)
Best Playback Singer (Female)
Sunidhi Chauhan – Dhoom 2 – Crazy Kiya Re
Alka Yagnik - Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna - Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna
Shreya Ghosal – Lage Raho Munnabhai – Pal Pal
Sunidhi Chauhan – Omkara – Beedi Jalaile
Lata Mangeshkar – Rang De Basanti – Luka Chhupi
D:2 Again: I'm used to it.
No complaints regarding others.
Best Playback Singer (Male)
Shaan – Fanaa – Chand Sifarish
K K – Gangster – Tu Hi Meri shab
Zubeen – Gangster – Ya Ali
Sonu Nigam - Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna - Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna
A. R. Rehman & Naresh Iyer – Rang De Basanti – Ru Baroo
Finally a category without D:2/ Krrish. No complaints.
