Dance Basanti is hardly representative of Sachin Jigar’s current form – a catchy, but thoroughly derivative song that could have easily been scored any Punjabi composer with random Z or J in his name. Aslam Keyi composed Ungli pe is no different! Salim Sulaiman’s Auliya is serene and makes one long for the duo’s proper […]

NW1W. Himesh back to his painful form. Keywords: Action Jackson, Himesh Reshammiya

Alcoholic continues Yo Yo Honey Singh’s festish for assorted spirits and he is clearly the best in creating catchy songs built around them. Manali trance goes a step beyond mere spirit, into the realm of hallucinogens, and in Neha Kakkar’s appropriately intoxicating vocals, this one’s a heady mix too. Hard Kaur composed Aashiq Mizaaj, in […]

Happy Ending (Music review), Hindi – Sachin-Jigar

G phaad ke is a bloody catchy mix – Divya Kumar and Shefali Alvares scorch the dance floor with their enthusiasm. The tune moves in intriguingly captivating directions before comfortably settling on the addictive hilke nacho hook. Paaji tussi such a pussy cat has a heady, corny twang and along with its hilarious lyrics, it’s […]

The title song sees the trio playing a superbly flamboyant and addictive tribute the classic Spaghetti Western music. Shankar Mahadevan and Sonu Nigam are in blistering form here and even indulge in some cool yodelling! Sweeta rides on the cool vaudevillain sound, a tune bordering on Pancham’s Jeevan ke har modh pe (Jhoota Kahin Ka) […]

Krsna builds on Pancham’s original Pyar mein dil pe on predictable lines, but Bappi Lahiri, with his verve, is the real hero of the song! Krsna’s other track, Khamakha has a nice conversational feel to it and Mohit Chauhan’s is the best version among the three. Sonu Nigam’s version of Arko’s Dildara is the best […]

Ghoor ghoor ke is catchy, no doubt, but is too simplistic, and not fitting the standards Ram Sampath is known for. Tod de kataar is progressively worse – despite Labh Janjua’s spirited singing, the tune has hardly anything interesting. The title song has a foot-tapping retro sound to it, but where Ram really wins is […]

Bang Bang (Music review), Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar

Meherbaan‘s structure – the softer parts alternating with bouncy Punjabi’ness and a guitar-laden vocal choir – is mighty neat! Shilpa Rao and Ash King, are, as always, highly effective! The song’s unplugged reprise is a great listen too! Tu meri‘s boy-band sound is punchy and wonderfully catchy. Uff has that kind of rhythm and lyrics […]

India Wale is standard-issue Farah Khan chorus song, with carefully thought-through lyrics to evoke maximum jingoism. Manwa laage is earthy and highly rhythmic, while Satakli’s one-hook is adequately repeated to make some impact. Nonsense ki night‘s utterly corny lyrics helps the mish-mash, while Dance like a chammiya has an addictive ring to it. Sharabi sounds […]

Haider (Music review), Hindi – Vishal Bhardwaj

Vishal Dadlani is the perfect choice for Aao na‘s grunge rock, with the composer playing with captivating guitar hooks! The song’s alternative version is the lone sore note in the soundtrack. Bismil‘s Central European sound is a complete kicker; Sukhwinder Singh and the chorus deliver Gulzar’s storified lyrics beautifully. The song’s other version, Ek aur […]
