Akshay Kumar's stunt washed away by rain
By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, Sep 15 (IANS) What was planned as an explosive stunt featuring Akshay Kumar with the all-girl contestants of the daredevil reality show "Fear Factor 2" turned out to be a damp squib.

At Mukesh Mills, the entire prop from which Akshay was supposed to plunge 30 feet below came crashing down in the torrential rain that hit the city Monday afternoon.

"Akshay had been practising rigorously for the stunt for two days. Disaster struck a day before the event when during the dry run one of the contestants Mandira Bedi got a hairline fracture. And if that wasn't bad enough, just before the event the whole prop crashed down and so did the area we had cordoned off for the press."

Colors TV channel CEO Rajesh Kamat confirmed the incident, saying: "It went wrong. Akshay couldn't do his stunt. Doesn't matter. There will be many other occasions." Akshay Kumar Khatron Ke Khiladi Level 2 Press Meet

A R Rahman proves his prowess yet again with Blue Movie Music Review

Rahman proves his prowess yet again with 'Blue'
By Ruchika Kher

Film: "Blue"; Music Director: A R Rahman; Lyricists: Abbas Tyrewala, Mayur Puri and Raqeeb Alam; Singers: Kylie Minogue, Sonu Nigam, Sukhwinder Singh, Shreya Ghoshal, Vijay Prakash, Rashid Ali, Blaaze, Raqeeb Alam, Sonu Kakkar, Neha Kakkar, Jaspreet Singh, Udit Narayan and Madhushree; Ratings: *** 1/2

India's double Oscar winner A.R. Rahman returns with another hit musical score in underwater film "Blue". The album boasts of both racy and slow songs and brings forth contemporary sounds that generate a lot of interest.

The film, which is set to hit theatres Oct 16, stars Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar and Lara Dutta among others. The soundtrack has seven originals.

The listener is provided with a breezy and soothing experience with "Aaj dil gustakh hai", a romantic song sung wonderfully by Shreya Ghoshal and Sukhwinder Singh. With the strumming of the acoustic guitar, the song becomes hip and rich in contemporary sounds. It sure is a delight to hear.

Up next is another likeable number "Bhoola tujhe". The song crooned by Rashid Ali is a poignant offering and is slow in pace initially. But the tempo gradually increases. It has a unique quality that strikes a chord with the listener and Rahman spins his magic yet again.

Next in line is the theme song. It changes pace many times and also shifts from western to Indian influences and back. A power-packed number, it has Blaaze, Raqeeb Alam, Sonu Kakkar and Jaspreet Singh behind the microphone.

Then there is the much-awaited song "Chiggy wiggy", which features international pop singer Kylie Minogue. Not only does she sing the number, she is also seen in the video. that is already on air. Kylie is supported by Sonu Nigam for the vocals.

The first part of the song is in English and is completely western, but Sonu enters with the sound of the dhol and gives the song an Indian feel. The track is neither bad nor brilliant.

"Fiqrana" by Shreya Ghoshal and Vijay Prakash is another fast-paced number. But it doesn't impress very much.

Up next is "Rehnuma", a sensual number with influences of jazz. The song is crooned by Shreya Ghoshal yet again along with Sonu Nigam. It's in a different league altogether. Rahman's signature style can be felt at places. A nice track indeed.

Finally there is "Yaar mil tha", which has vocals by Udit Narayan and Madhushree. The song, a fusion of western and Indian styles, is not as interesting as others. It really doesn't stand out as extraordinary.

But on the whole, Rahman has proved his musical prowess yet again with this soundtrack.
