Harry’s not a Brahmachari has a frenzied techno sound that sits well atop the essentially Punjabi tune; Jazzy B and Divya Kumar seem perfect for the high-pitched song. I’m sorry tumse pyar ho gaya rides on Nikhil Paul George’s awesome vocals (and ably supported by Neeti Mohan and Mili Nair), but yes, Pritam’s spritely tune […]

Queen (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

London thumakda is the soundtrack’s most straight-forward and accessible song – simple, catchy tune, sung with earthy flavor by Labh Janjua with the right dollop of enthusiasm. O gujariya too falls in that zone – easy listening techno ditty with the right punch and disapassionately manic singing by Shefali and Nikhil. Badra bahaar sees Amit […]

I’m Just Pakaoed‘s highlight is clearly Amitabh Bhattacharya’s hilarious lyrics, besides Siddharth Mahadevan’s uninhibited high pitched vocals. Kaboom sees Anushka Manchanda in fantastic form, again with fantastic lyrics by Amitabh, coupled with a lively tune by the trio. Baat kya hai‘s pensive tune is endearing and even the craftily minimal music the trio load it […]

Highway (Music review), Hindi – A R Rahman

Nooran Sisters’ earthy vocals power Patakha guddi really well, backed by Rahman’s alluring, contrasting backgrounds. Rahman mauls his version with new-fangled renditon, however. But he does well in Maahi ve, a lovely tune let down only by its middling orchestration. Sooha saha, Tu kuja and Heera hold wonderfully pleasant tunes and Rahman’s choice of women […]

With its catchy Middle Eastern sound and Ash King’s cool vocals, Mashooqana is easily likeable. Gaurav unleashes his Mithoon’ness in Main dhoondne – neat, thanks to Arijit’s soaring vocals. KK is in his dependable self in the soft-pop Soniye, but the title song goes overboard and is rather cringe-worthy! Much like the otherwise tuneful Thanks […]

Gunday (Music review), Hindi – Sohail Sen

Jashn-e-ishqa‘s manic energy is wonderfully delivered by Javed Ali and Shadaab Faridi. Tune maari entriyaan is catchy South Indian kuthu all the way (even the Bengali version), including a sneaky homage the TKS Natarajan’s 80s cult Tamil song, Ennadi muniyamma. Jiya‘s backgrounds and sweeping melody are enticing, but Asalaam-e-ishqum sounds like unimpressive early Pritam material. […]

Punjabi Wedding Song is as per the name – adequately Sunidhi Chauhan, with the right sprinkling of English hooks. Shake it like Shammi is a genuinely interesting take on Shammi-era rock and roll; fantastic singing by Benny Dayal and innovatively groovy. Drama queen, despite the energy, is standard-issue Dharma sound. It’s in Manchala, Zehnaseeb and […]

The title song is heavily stereotyped, with odd South Indian influences too like ‘Parotta’ besides Paranthe. Party sharty is no different – assembly-line and at times out of tune too, thanks to Vasundhara. KK saves Tere bin‘s predictable Pakistani-pop sound, but Wind of Change‘s wannabe pop sound is plain annoying. Khidki se zara future aane […]

Of Sajid Wajid’s three songs, Baaki sab and Photocopy are unbearably banal, but Tere naina, that sounds like the love child of Bullet Raja’s Saamne hai and Dabangg’s Tere mast mast, is a neat listen! Amal Malik’s Tumko to aana hi tha is sappy and cheesy; the House mix (Love you till the end), even […]

Dedh Ishqiya (Music review), Hindi – Vishal Bhardwaj

Vishal, thankfully, does not sing Dil ka mizaaj, like Matru’s Khamaka; he gets Rahat to do the singing, resulting in pure, dulcet magic! Rahat’s other song, Zabaan jale hai, à la Jagjit Singh ghazal’s 2.0 version is equally good! The techno-mujra Hamari atariya, despite Rekha Bhardwaj, feels contrived, but she makes up with Jagaave saari […]
