Poster of Yuvvraaj movie of Subhash Ghai starring Anil Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Zayed Khan & Salman Khan, music composed by A.R.Rahman & lyrics written by Gulzaar
By : Rahmaniac (Farzad Khaleel)

If initial sound of Yuvvraaj is any indication, Subhash Ghai, A R Rahman and Gulzar have a winner in hands. The teasers of this yet another magnum opus from Ghai are out and so far, reactions from all around have been positive all the way.

Though one is yet to hear the words in the song, just the sound of piano playing in the background with some well etched frames featuring the quartet of Anil Kapoor, Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and Zayed Khan are collectively good enough to promise a lot in the offering. Add to that a lavish look of the film and one can almost sense a Taal round the corner.

Years back Ghai and Rahman had created magic with Taal which finds itself amongst one of the all time great soundtracks. Though Rahman along with Ismail Darbar did come up with a very good soundtrack in Kisna as well, it went largely unnoticed. Now with Yuvvraaj, Ghai is back with Rahman and one expects nothing but magic from the showman and the maestro!

Stay tuned as the film’s audio is expected to arrive around the middle of October.

First look of Yuvvraaj is out and while reactions from the industry as well as the common man are still awaited, those associated with the film are ecstatic to say the least. This is what they have to say about the music which is expected to hit the stands soon:

Salman Khan - “When Rahman and Subhashji come together, they give you the best music. The music of Yuvvraaj is outstanding. Its very soulful, peaceful and carries a sweetness of its own with powerful lyrical value.”

A R Rahman - “Subhash Ghai is very different from other directors. He has really worked hard on the visuals. They look really colorful and really romantic. It’s almost treated in a musical way where it’s more realistic than just background music.”

Gulzar - “When I saw the songs of Yuvvraaj on screen, I sent a message to Rahman saying that they were magnificent, and this is a very honest opinion of his songs and picturisation. Great showman puts up a great show! I think the performances of Subhash’s Yuvvraaj will go a long way in carrying this film ahead. It touches your heart.”

Shridhar (Sound Engineer – Yuvvraaj) - “I think its gonna rock, well, its gonna orchestrate… It’s going to reach a lot of people… and touch their minds and souls…”
