5.0 out of 5 stars Covers it all!
This is a great summary of Bollywood music. The first CD covers some of the early big-band tunes, which are jazzy and bluesy. The second CD deals exclusively with funk, and you won't believe that the tunes aren't nicked from Western artists (they aren't). The third CD expresses the unfortunate state of Bollywood today, tacky, cheesy, tunes without distinctive melodies or...

3.0 out of 5 stars Just above average Bollywood Compilation!
I bought this collection almost ten years ago and was slightly disappointed with some of the selections in the compilation. Even so, this Beginner's guide to Bollywood is just above average and was not impressed with CD 3. In CD 3, there was only 4-5 good tracks like: "Tujhe Deka To"; "Aye-Dil-e-Nadan"; "Zindagi Jhoom Kar";"Ek Ladki Ko Dekha"& "Ek Pal Ko Jeena"...

The third CD expresses the unfortunate state of Bollywood today, tacky, cheesy, tunes without distinctive melodies or interesting themes. But this is certainly worth a buy for the first two CDs which I've been listening to for months and months!

4.0 out of 5 stars review, 31 Aug 2010
Very good. The 1st 2 CDs of vintage and 70s are probably more to my ear than the last (modern Bollywood). Asha Bhosle also gets most of the songs, though for all I know she may have sung most of the soundtracks. She's very good anyway.

This is a great introduction to the fab music of Bollywood's movies. A good selection of the most famous one and a great introduction to the genre. I loved it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Just above average Bollywood Compilation!, 6 May 2013

Overall, the previous 2 CD's Vintage and Funky Bollywood reflected the heyday of Bollywood and the present day "Modern Bollywood" is not the same anymore with many indistinctive tunes and melodies.

It is worth buying for the first two CD's in the collection.
