Anu Malik channelizes his Ashoka/Refugee form again in Moh moh ke dhaage and in the two versions, by Papon and Monali Thakur, has a clear and easy winner! The title song is a messy hodge-podge, despite Kailash Kher and Nooran sisters. Barring the mod keyboard sound, Kumar Sanu’s Tu is a lovely, nostalgic throwback to […]

Badlapur (Music review), Hindi – Sachin Jigar

Jee karda is an absolute kicker! The normal version, in itself, is a stupendous listen for the incredibly engaging tune and Divya Kumar’s spirited vocals. The guitars and shehnai speak to each other with panache in the song, while the rock version adds harmonium to the mix beautifully, besides significantly amplifying the guitar sound. Atif […]

Rochak Kohli’s title song has a breezy enough tune and he sings it with the necessary panache too! Rochak gets, aptly, Mohit Chauhan and Javed Bashir, for Daak ticket, yet another engaging folk’ish story-telling melody. He ends his contribution with the funky Turram Khan, superbly led by Papon, till Ayushmann Khurrana and Monali Thakur interject […]

Shamitabh (Music review), Hindi – Ilayaraja

It doesn’t matter that Anand Milind had freemixed Ilayaraja’s 1980 Tamil number from the Rajinikanth starrer Johnny, in Angrakshak’s Dil mere udaas hai! The veteran remixes it himself in Sannata, retaining the essence of the tune and getting Shruti to breeze through it, and also add her name along with Sunidhi and Shreya (courtesy Swanand […]

Amaal Malik’s Sooraj dooba hain is a mighty enthusiastic techno dance number with lively vocals of Aditi and Arijit. Meet Bros Anjjan’s Chittiyaan kalaiyaan, the desi dance number is easy on the ears with Kanika’s extra oomphy vocals. Ankit Tiwari’s Tu hai, Boond boond and Yaara re are in typical Ankit-style – soaring, immersive melodies […]

Beparwah is a fantastic departure from the usual Meet Bros Anjjan brand of music. Apeksha Dandekar’s diva-like vocals soar beautifully with the captivating tune, with the orchestration playing along approrpriately! The song’s other version (MBA swag!) is, unfortunately, pathetic. The soundtrack however belongs to M.M.Kreem and lyricist Manoj Muntashir, however, for Main tujhse pyaar! The […]

Phatte tak nachna, despite Sunidhi’s enthusiastic singing, is incredibly bland and template-driven! But Fashion khatham works big time, Mamta Sharma dishing out a punchy dance track with perfect chutzpah! Even Babaji ka thullu is a lot of fun, the hook delivered hilariously by Wajid amidst a spunky techno sound and Danish Sabri’s backing vocals and […]

The title song and Baatein ye kabhi na are vintage Jeet – wonderfully mellifluous and easily likeable, thanks also to Arijit’s vocals. Palak is darn good in the latter’s other version too, while the title song’s Unplugged version is Arijit’s show all the way. Bobby Imran’s lone tune, Tu har lamha (and its Anupam Amod-sung […]

Ankit Tiwari plays with Katra katra‘s backgrounds impressively, and nails the endearing tune as well, besides singing it really well, along with Prakriti Kakar. Mithoon’s Awaara has a tune that is both familiar and oddly enough, middlingly sung by both Altamash Faridi and Saim Bhatt. Jeet’s Chand aasmano se laapata is right up his alley […]

G V Prakash Kumar sounds awkward in Sooraj hai kahaan; the generic tune doesn’t help either. But the composer makes up for it in Papa, a poignant melody that he hands over to dependable Shilpa Rao. Even Nichod de, beyond its limited item-number aspirations, works, thanks to GVP keeping it simple and catchy, along with […]
