Pheww!!! That was an exhausting month! As much as 8 albums to review! And the bonus Marathi album, which makes it 9, and also ‘Housefull 3’, which is a June release, but I reviewed it because it released early and having done so, it is safely outta my way now! But I will include only those eight albums as candidates for the awards… Namely, ‘1920 London’, ‘Traffic’, ‘One Night Stand’, ‘Azhar’, ‘Sarbjit’, ‘Waiting’, ‘Cabaret’ and ‘Veerappan’, so here goes!!
