MJ-LOTD: Zakhm

This weekend i caught up with 'Zakhm'- a movie which was in my to-watch list. And what a movie it was! Amazing. It was made at a time when Mahesh Bhatt was still making movies sans Emraan Hashmi and sans the skin show. The story is amazing. The movie holds your attention from the starting till the end. Moving back and forth in time,the story reveals itself in small installments. The acting of all the actors was apt. The music (by M M Kreem) is very unconventional though it used the conventional singers like Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik. I had heard (and liked) 'Tum aaye toh aaya mujhe yaad' before. But song, 'Hum yahaa', is very good as well. The lyrics of all songs are very contextual and helps in taking the story forward.

MJ-LOTD is the mellifluous song, hum yahaan, composed by M M Kreem. M M Kreem, i guess, is one of the most under-rated music directors in the Bollywood. Probably, because he doesn't do too many 'main-stream' movie.

He is a telugu guy and a famous music director in the industry locally. Anyways .. I love this movie and had been a fan of even Kunal khemu since then. :)

Yeah. Kunal Khemu did a good job. I, however, haven't seen any of his adulthood films.

Zakhm is a beautiful film. Mahesh Bhatt makes amazing films as a director but something always goes wrong when he's a producer.

I believe I've loved every MM Kreem soundtrack till date. Zakhm's compositions were simple but so damn beautiful. Ditto for Paheli.
