Piku (Music review), Hindi – Anupam Roy

Bezubaan is an easily likeable, evocative tune that goes a wee bit more than the standard-issue Hindi song where the leads are mooning over the good times. Journey Song is charming too, with Shreya singing in Bengali mid-way and the tune remaining engaging all through. Anupam sings Manoj Yadav’s poignant verses in Lamhe guzar gaye […]

Arijit sounds oddly labored in Chirantan Bhatt-composed Teri meri kahani, with a predictable Pakistani-pop sound. Chirantan’s other song, Coffee peetey peetey does sound like something composed over the music playing in the coffee store, while drinking coffee! Yo Yo Honey Singh’s Aao raja is his usual stuff that he composes, seemingly under the influence of […]

Foreign balamwa is an un-Mikey’ish item song, worsened by Sonu Kakkar’s exaggerated vocals. Prasoon’s lyrics and Rachel Varghese’s diva-style vocals hold the Clapton-style Choone chali together. In Meri aadat, Mikey’s ode to R.E.M’s Losing My Religion, Anushka delivers like only she can. Mikey comes into his own in the English tracks – the jazzy I […]

To ju hain sees Ankit churning his standard template to the hilt. Where Ankit really scores is in his other two – Shukrana starts off meanderingly, but soon a pumping rhythm takes over and lifts the song up, while Alif se has catchy techno break-beats that work well. Jeet’s title song has a Bond theme’ish […]

Sneha Khanwalkar’s Bach ke Bakshy is mind-bogglingly eclectic, with a curiously addictive sound! Byomkesh In Love, by alt-rock band Blek is a less impressive reworking of their own superlative 2012 song Fog + Strobe. Joint Family’s Life’s a bitch and electro-alt-punk duo Mode.AKA’s Chase in Chinatown are fashionably and flamboyantly grungy, while Peter Cat Recording […]

Uzair Jaiswal mildly spruces up his 2010 Tere bin and sings it too, sleepily. The female version is by Tulsi Kumar… period. Amaal Malik’s lone song, Saiyaan superstar, is insipid. Dr.Zeus hands Kanika Kapoor a super catchy Desi look and she does a great job. Tony Kakkar’s Khuda bhi is jaded Bhatt template, while his […]

Yo Yo Honey Singh’s Birthday bash is his standard one-hook, barely functional song. Dr.Zeus’ Tipsy hogai has a nice enough Latin twang to tide over the predictable tune, while Indeep Bakshi’s Tere liye is adequately soporific. Tiger Style’s (!) Zaalim dilli and Milind Gaba’s Saddi dilli are terribly templatized Punjabi ditties, the former salvaged only […]

DJ‘s appeal is primarily the catchy music and that it delivers darn well. Sunidhi, along with the occasional Ali Zafar, handle the middling tune adequately. Bulbul goes full-on desi dance dhamaka, Mumbaiya style, and in Himesh Reshammiya and Shreya Ghoshal’s vocals, it barely makes an impact. Anu Malik and Mika maon through Line laga in […]

Hunterrr (Music review), Hindi – Khamosh Shah

Hunterrr 303 is a neat throwback to the Bappi disco period, while Chori chori is a sedate old-world melody with a new coating – very listenable, in Arijit and Sona Mohapatra’s vocals. Thaali hai khaali and Amit Trivedi-sung Bachpan have corny, bizarre lyrics; the former breezes through with catchy charm and the latter is just […]

Sanjeev Darshan pitch in with a strong Chhil gaye naina with the right amount of grunge in it. Mohit Chauhan, Shilpa Rao and Arijit adorn Le chal in 3 versions, a languorous composition by Bann Chakraborty that’s wonderfully lounge’ish, but it’s the fourth, differentiated variant, Khoney de, featuring Mohit and Neeti that tops all! Composers […]
