Before a drama serial comes out, what is it that catches your attention? Makes you want to tune into the channel to see whether the drama itself is worth a watch? What is it that you could call a “love at first sight”? How do you even get introduced to the actors???
Well well, lets put your query to rest and no, the answer isn’t “morning shows”!
Its the OST to a particular drama serial which not only gives us a hint to the story line the drama would be adopting, but also acquaints us with the actors who would be starring. It gives us our necessary first impression, on the basis of which we decide the worth of the drama.
Developing an OST is a difficult task, and involves a team effort which may or may not make it successful. This is why, Hum Style Awards have an entire category dedicated to determining and awarding the best OST of the year. Lets make the work of Hum Style Award jurors, easy, and identify the top OSTs of the year 2018!
