Amaal’s two songs – Main hoon hero and O Khuda – are engaging, and Armaan sings it with the right feel. In Main hoon’s other version, Amaal performs musical-photoshop on Salman Khan’s vocals. Jassi Katyal’s Yadaan teriyaan is maudlin, dated pathos. Meet Bros Anjjan’s Dance ke legend is loaded with every stock bit imaginable, on […]

Phantom (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Afghan jalebi, beyond the standardized Central Asian folk tune, is incredibly catchy thanks to Pritam’s clever and pulsating arrangements. While Asrar and Akhtar’s versions are identical, Akhtar’s second, Dumbek version goes one step forward in rhythmic catchiness. Its 4th version, by Nakash Aziz, pales in comparison due to a weaker voice. Saware rides on Arijit’s […]

NW1W. Atrocious mess, between 7 credited composers (9, if you consider Meet Bros Anjjan as 3 individual composers). Keywords: Not Welcome Back, Anu Malik, Meet Bros Anjjan, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Siddhant Madhav, Mika Singh, Music MG, Abhishek Ray

Brothers Anthem, as the name indicates, holds an anthemic sound and Vishal Dadlani powers it well, even though it’s the pulsating orchestration that stands out! The composing duo repackage their Marathi song from Jatra to great effect in Mera naam Mary that sizzles with Chinmayi’s rendition. Shreya’s version of Gaaye jaa rules over Mohammed Irfan’s, […]

Shabbir Ahmed’s wishful thinking of 4 Saturdays in a week is the only solace of Amaal Malik’s Char shanivaar. Himesh gets Arijit for Baaton ko teri, but the tune is monotonous and painfully simplified. But Himesh’s other two songs are pretty good – the catchy Punjabi mix of Yolo, sung fabulously by Sreeramachandra, and the […]

Kya pataa is the kind of song Vishal used to hand over to Suresh Wadkar. Then, he started singing them himself. Now, he gets Arijit to sing this whispery, ambient tune, beautifully accentuated by those jazz’y backgrounds. Ash King brings Gulzar’s typically colloquial lines to life in style, in Carbon copy, amidst Vishal’s thumping, guitar-laden […]

Masaan (Music review), Hindi – Indian Ocean

Tu kisi rail si guzarti is more Euphoria than Indian Ocean, but the charm remains intact, building a steady and lilting folk’ish tune on the back of Nikhil Rao’s guitaring. Varun Grover’s lyrics, adapted from Dushyant Kumar’s poem, is charming! Mann kasturi is decidely more Indian Ocean, again sipping into Nikhil’s fantastic guitars to build […]

Ishq karenge‘s power qawali is aptly spoofy, strongly evoking Farah Khan’s musical sensibilities, of all things! While Abhishek Nehwal and Sona Mohapatra handle it with ease, Shadab Faridi seems oddly out of sorts. The song’s EDM version blunts some of the original version’s filmy polish to add a new dimension. Hogi kranti is an interesting […]

Selfie le le and Aaj ki party are insipid and pointless. Atif Aslam handles the Coldplay’ish ballad, Tu chahiye, well! Ditto for the soundtrack’s best, Zindagi and Tu jo, where Jubin Nautiyal and KK perform wonderfully. Zindagi’s reprise with Rahat is equally good, but Tu jo’s other 2 versions, by Javed Ali and Papon, are […]

The title song starts off with Amit’s predictable scheme of things… till that second interlude and the subsequent, dramatic change in sound that puts the song in another gear! Its remix, however, is more annoyingly gimmicky. Sooiyan is an easy winner – a wonderfully pleasant melody that gains so much from the choice of singers […]
