After the terrific but highly underrated score for Aamir, Amit Trivedi comes up with his second movie score which could just be the most radical mainstream Bollywood album ever.

Trivedi composes as many as 18 tracks: angry rock, authentic classical, honey-soaked melodies, novel fusion and some plain good music, accompanied by murky, deep and rather whacked out lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

The brass band version of Emotional attyachar is probably the craziest and most original song in years while its rock version just blows your socks off –– the perfect antidote for a broken heart.

Then there’s the heady Duniya, the toxic Nayan barse and the Rajasthani-rock Pardesi.. add to all this the dreamy Dhol yaara dhol, and you get one helluva album. Way to rock!

Composer: Aamir, Amit Trivedi and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
