Soulful melodies like ‘Tere Naam’ in Salman’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo

The music album of ‘Tere Naam’ is the most soulful album of Himesh Reshammiya’s career and arguably the best of the 2000s too.

The ace-music composer, who gave partially gave up his super-successful career as music director and singer to try his luck at acting, reunites with Salman Khan for Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.

A source close to the film has revealed that the 9-song music album will have traditional Barjatya feel and will mostly be soulful melodies, something that is rare in today’s times.

“Himesh Reshammiya has composed all nine songs on the album. They will have the traditional Barjatya touch and will mostly be soulful melodies. Himesh has roped in some of the best talents in the industry to sing his songs. He is making sure the album stands out, without any item numbers.” a source said.

He also added that the title track will be sung by two of the most popular songs of 90s and 2000s – Sonu Nigam and Kumar Sanu.

“Sonu Nigam and Kumar Sanu will sing the title track. Salman will lip sync to Sonu’s voice whereas Neil Nitin Mukesh will lip sync to Kumar’s. Also, Palak Muchhal will sing a romantic track that will have Sonam Kapoor and Salman romancing typical Barjatya style. There will be two soulful Sufi numbers – one sung by Shafqat Amanat Ali and the other by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.”

And guess what? Salman is in love with the music of Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, which releases in theatre during Diwali this year.



  • It’s good news. However, looking back at Himesh’s recent music albums, it is difficult to expect memorable soulful music. Anyway looking forward to Songs from Sonu & Kumar Sanu. Though Sonu’s voice is rarely heard these days, he has a magical unique voice which cannot be matched with any of today’s male singers including Arijit, Mohit Chauhan, Atilf Aslam.

  • My favrite songs from tere naam all of them r fabulous
    2)tere nam sad
    3)tumse milne
    4)lagan lagan
    5)tune saath
    still listening

  • Plz dnt go over board to make it too soothing becoz some peoples may not like it they like lungi dance kind of songs

  • but I don’t remember the last time he gave good songs.maybe be namsate London but glad he will not sing himself all the songs…..songs are very imp for romantic film and himesh must give his 100% on prdp music than on his six packs…he seems to be the only hurdle for prdp right now

  • Expecting a soulful album after a long time, happy dat salman khan is doing other than Masala Genre to prove his versatility to burn the #Haters in hell :)

  • I hope this film is very different from what Salman is doing in recent times….

    Also I feel that these type of music are necessary in today’s times & I am happy that salman is not at all collaborating with the CRAP SAJID-WAJID who makes 3rd class music…

  • Even I love that type of songs like 90s or 2000s and with Kumar Shanu and Sonu Nigham that’s called 4 Moon Attached.

    But not want any Song by Himesh Megastar because he will start………oooooooooo Huuuuuzooooor pak gaye sare khuzooooor……

  • 2day tere naam can easily do 300crs
    so prdp 400cr for sure
    hope the melodies are not like manwa lage v want some thing like
    dard dilon ke,banjaara,sunn raha ne tu kind

  • Ok….so todays albums like Ek VIllain, Aasiqui 2 and Badlapur are just not soulful or melodious enough???

    @Indicine Plz make an article with the user reviews for Badlapur as it is going to be first hit of 2015 and it deserves special treatment!!! And make that article for each biggie released please!!! Tnx in advance

  • Himesh is a brilliant music director . The fact is that he is losing respect by acting in movies . He should understand that he is meant to do music and sometimes singing but not acting . Tere Naam is a very good movie and Salman gave a terrific performance in the movie . Tere Naam had great songs and i hope PRDP also has soulful songs . I am waiting for PRDP because of the following reasons :
    1. Salman without Masala .
    2. Salman – Sooraj Combo who have given MPK, HAHK and HSSH .
    3. Salman in an performance oriented role .
    4. Salman coming on Diwali . He always prefers Eid and also got Christmas for Dabangg 2 in 2012 so if i am right this is the first time Salman coming on Diwali .

  • This year highest TRP on t.v > akshays Entertainmnt !!
    now decide who is more popular in smaller areas Akshay or salman ?????

  • prdp will be biggest blockbuster of recent times sure. Youth are fools if they dont interested in this kind of family drama.

  • Great news, PRDP music will be rockz. If songs and music are good then it will be DECADE highest grosser. Waiting for Salman movie…..

  • All family audience waiting for epic family drama movie.
    Prem = 200cr
    Ratan = 200cr
    Dhan = $ money
    Payo = Salman receive.
    PRDP = 400CR domestic collection.
