Arijit carries the title song wonderfully – he expresses the desperation in Rashmi Virag’s lyrics beautifully, set to a poignant tune by Jeet. The Jeet-sung version is a great listen as well. Jeet’s other song, Yeh kaisi jagah has better backgrounds than tune, but Deepali Sathe elevates that with her vocals. Papon is expectedly good […]

Rochak Kohli’s techno Honey Singh’isation – adding assorted spirits to any song – of the lullaby Lalla lalla lori is aptly techno and foot-tapping. Vishal Dadlani breezes through the catchy tune in style. Rochak’s other song, Boat ma kukdookoo rides on Mika Singh’s cool vocals and he doesn’t disappoint; the song takes a lively dandiya […]

Dil dhadakne do gets the synthrock sound and the title hook pulsatingly right, though Farhan stretching his vocal chords is balanced only by Priyanka Chopra’s far more confident singing. Pehli baar is classic rock, the trio-style – they do what they’re really good at, with Siddharth Mahadevan and Sukriti’s confident vocals. Gallan goodiyan is a […]

Move On is a frenetically paced, borderline Middle Eastern (Vakulabharanam raga based?) track that Sunidhi completely owns, while lyricist Raj Shekhar’s melancholic lines come out really well in Ankit Tiwari’s involved vocals and Krsna’s haunting, but simple tune in Mat jaa re. Ghani bawri is earthy and catchy, and Jyoti Nooran is fantastic with her […]

The title song by Jeet Ganguly uses the Aashiqui 2 template well, with Ankit delivering too. Jeet’s other, Georgia sae Jalandhar is a middling dance track salvaged by Master Salim’s enthusiastic singing. Jaidev Kumar pitches in with two songs – Arijit propels Judaa‘s sweeping tune well even as Jaidev layers the limited background sound to […]

Ikka, Arko and Intense’s (yes!) Honey Singh’ish Paani wala dance achieves its purpose of helping you visualize a wet Sunny Leone. Arko’s recreation of Pancham’s Saagar song in Aao no is fantastic – well spruced up, while retaining the flavor. Amjad Nadeem’s Daaru peeke is straight out of a Tamil/Telugu raucous kuthu. Their other two […]

After 3 minutes of lively ‘circus music’ in Aam Hindustani, Shefali Alvares arrives in smouldering style, mouthing Amitabh Bhattacharya’s amusing Mumbaiya filmy verses, with the brass band offering solid backdrop. Shefali does a redux in Shut Up too, an essentially Amit Trivdedi’esque tune, but with a really smooth jazz makeover. Shefali’s 3rd song, Mohabbat buri […]

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 […]
