Arko Pravo Mukherjee’s recreation of Laxmikant Pyarelal’s Dayavaan number, Aaj phir tumpe is pretty good, though much credit is due to the original’s tune, besides Arijit and Samira Koppikar’s vocals. There is a remix of this remix too, funnily, in the soundtrack! Kabhi aayine, by Rashid Khan, is typical Mohit Suri musical formula; limited impact. […]

Jashn has a pleasant, easy charm, with quirky sounds spoofing South Indian music and fantastic singing by Shreya Ghoshal! Tu is exquisite! Shreya’s spritely, very-Bengali sounding part works beautifuly with Papon’s gorgeous ghazal tune and Shantanu’s veena (or, sitar?) interludes go really well too! The song’s Reprise, with Papon and Shreya’s voices swapped, is an […]

Khalifa‘s steady, thrumming techno sound is instantly likeable, as is the simple, hook’y tune. Rahman’s singing, despite the digital additions, is apt for the overall feel, while the disparate rap-style interludes take time to get used to, but do add to the overall song’s charm. In fact, even the opening vocals of Mawali qawwali take […]

Ankit Tiwari’s very Pritam-style Galliyan is gorgeously mounted; his singing, the guitar and flute, lovelorn lyrics… all come together wonderfully! The film’s leading lady Shraddha Kapoor is surprisingly good despite the occasional rough edges in the unplugged version! Momina Mustehshan carries Soch Band’s (Rabbi Ahmed and Adnan Dhool) Nescafe Basement song, Awari’s ambient recreation mighty […]

Despite the droning background and absurd lyrics, Caller tune cranks up an interesting tune, along with Neeraj Shridhar’s characteristic vocals. Energetic jhankaar beats style sound of Piya ke bazaar and Hum pagal nahin hai is catchy, much like Himesh’s simple, appealing tune; Himesh actually delivers the latter pretty well too! Khol de dil khi khidki […]

Swaroop Khan pulls off the pulsating Udaari well, but the remixed-Euphoria sound has its limits. The short Uljhi depends a lot on Arijit’s vocals and the guitar, and both don’t let the song down. Shafqat is the star of the haunting, sufi penance-like Bhugol – fairly interesting sound! Bol’s Indipop sound manages to hold the […]

Holiday (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Arijit’s delightful singing lifts the already gorgeous tune of Aaj dil shayarana. Pritam’s tune is unusually structured and makes fantastic use of violin the background. Irshad Kamil’s lyrics completely dominate the sombre Naina, Pritam opting for a Rahman’ish pensive sound and Arijit is great form again. Blame The Night is punchy techno dance done well, […]

Anu Malik’s ululating yell in Tarzan is the most annoying thing one could hear all year; it seriously comes in the way of Parichay’s otherwise functional dance track. Palash Sen’s Phacebook pyaar and Welcome Maiyya are plain horrendous, sounding like really bad bhojpuri songs. His last song 1-2-3 is off the Bhojpuri trip, but is […]

The title song is typical Honey Singh – the kind that sounds annoying, but would refuse to get out of the head thanks to its repetitive hooks. For his other song, Banjarey, Honey plays against type and the result is not bad at all! Raftaar’s Dhup chik is heady Punjabi techno that is simple and […]

Muskurane is a stunningly beautiful combo – the lyrics, Arijit’s soaring vocals and the soorthing arrangement! Mohammed Irfan’s slower Unplugged version, in comparison, seems laboured. Neeti Mohan does well in Darbadar phire, but Jeet’s arrangement works better than the disjoint tune. Jeet gets the despondent, Todi-based tune perfectly with Arijit’s vocals in Soney do, while […]
