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 […]

Jubin Nautiyal and Altamash Faridi carry the Mohit Suri’ish melody in Ek mulaqat rather well; good work by composers Amjad-Nadeem too. Daniel B George’s Cheenti cheenti and Sapney are both catchy, while his somber turn in Sikkey works too, thanks to Amitabh Narayan, much like Raghav Sachar’s lone track, Mausam, by Kshitij Tarey. The soundtrack’s […]

Sneha’s Sound Trippin’ looms large over Engine ki seeti and Baal khade, the former, a Rajasthani funk riot, aced by Resmi Sateesh and Sunidhi, and the latter, a significantly more zany mix, with Sunidhi’s rendition making a huge difference. Maa ka phone too is pretty wacky, situationally, lyrics-wise and the supreme confidence with which Priya […]

Fanny re is so un-Goan, employs very Punjabi lyrics and is sung by a Rajasthani singer, Mukhtiyar Ali! The song has a wacky, distinctly-European sound, and carries an undeniable charm! The song’s other version, Mahi ve, is ditto, with just Fanny replaced with Mahi! Mathias Duplessy croons Ding dong himself and the French-Portuguese mix is […]

Ziddi dil works perfectly as a motivational track, thanks to Vishal Dadlani’s impactful singing and Shashi’s racy music. Mohit does the honors in Teri baari, the sound remaining energetic and lofty. Shashi’s other songs are significantly softer – Adhure is Sunidhi’s show, within the sweeping melody, Saudebaazi is Pritam melody material and Priyanka rules the […]

Tony Kakkar’s sole contribution, Sawan aaya seems like an odd, dated mix of Mithoon and Nadeem Shravan. The Unplugged version, despite being awkwardly sung by Tony, brings out the melody better. Mithoon opens his account with Hum naa rahein, yet another track that sounds exactly like any Mithoon number, but Benny’s soft turn offers good […]

Jeet recycles his own 2013 rock ballad Man majhi re from Boss admirably well in Sun le zara; the original Bengali song’s singer Arijit reprises his role as well. Singham Returns is completely insipid; it’s MBA swag remix, even more so! Ankit Tiwari’s Kuch toh hua hai is distinctly like a Vishal Shekhar number – […]
