Bluffmaster: Borrowed background score

Saw Bluffmaster for the first time. I am not too sure if other people have noticed that in the movie whenever Priyanka Chopra comes on screen, the background score that was played was actually the song “Bitter sweet symphony’ by ‘the Verve’??

I guess expecting originality from Bollywood is expecting way too much. High hopes!!
Originality and Bollywood are poles apart. 😛

    Its one my favourite songs and I was holding my head when i heard it play for priyanka chopra’s entrance 😆

    you know i kept thinking the same thing (and was thoroughly annoyed subsequently), but it’s actually not, listen to it carefully- the refrain is just violins, and that’s why it sounds similar.

    all of ye all are corrected… it was delirately borrowed .. but then it is not the same peice..
    the staccato punches of the violons were definately planned like the way it is in bitter sweet smyponey and by the way that particular piece in verve’s track was also borrowed ! from a rolling stones track !
    which almost made verve lose out on all the earnings from that track …so i dont really call it plagarism but definately directly inspired from that peice !!!

    oh and btw .. what about rest of the scrore which was totally original ?

    where did the poles go now ///

    hmm… ohkies
    I loved the bure bure song(which i guess is an indian version of another foreign song). What I liked about say n say na was the peculiar voice of the singer. Is she the part of the band who composed for the movie?

    hi guys/varshita,

    did any of u manage to get hold of this particular piece of song (not the verve one) ?? its frustrating that its not provided in the OST. im pretty sure i heard it on a mobile phone or something. arrgh.. maybe i’ll just snip it out of the movie!!

    Can anbody tell the backgroung music tone used in aashiq banaya aapne??

  15. You, my ma’am are my savior. I heard the song by Verve an hour ago, and I knew I’d heard the tune somewhere but couldn’t remember for sure. I had a feeling it was between Dil Chahta Hai & Bluffmaster. Even looking up their official song list didn’t show any results, until I landed here.
    Thanks a tonne. This would’ve bugged me for years. 😛
    PS: Can’t believe it’s been 10 freaking years since Bluffmaster.
