15 singers, 21 actors! But something's missing...

Bombay Talkies unveils its new track Apna Bombay Talkies starring an ensemble of Bollywood actors Shahrukh, Aamir, Saif, Ranbir, Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh, Shahid, Imran, Farhan Akhtar, Saif, Kareena, Karisma, Madhuri, Juhi, Sridevi, Vidya, Rani, Priyanka, Sonam, Deepika.

But I wonder why people are calling it a Bollywood anthem.
Music by Amit Trivedi is thanda at best. It fails to live up to the theme it's commemorating - 100 years of Hindi cinema. It's barely an ode to the film industry. There's nothing exciting about it even visually. With such big names coming together, you'd expect something grander.  

PS: The only good part - Shahrukh in the end, in his signature style with DDLJ's title track on the mandolin playing in the backdrop. I can never get enuf ;-)

What do you think about the song? Like it? Hate it? Tell me in the comments below.

Or let's talk on facebook or twitter!
