Naach Madhubala is like a banal Salman intro song; they introduce a bhoot instead of bhai. Nahin dungi and Sheeshe ka try mock recreations of the 50s sound, and Rupmatii’s faux singing mauls them. Manoj Mishra does a better job of this in Jaayen to jaayen. Dasni sharab is techno sound gone nuts, and Ishq […]

NW1W. Have nothing to say except that Ummbakkum is easily something Southern composer Thaman may have composed – it has his trademark rhythm after all. Keywords: O Teri, GJ Singh, Hard Kaur

Beyond the silly lyrics, Sajid Wajid’s catchy tune does make an impression in Besharmi ki height, with that Ek tuu hook and generally amiable techno sound. Tera hero idhar hai cleverly appropriates Pancham’s Jahan teri yeh nazar hai and Pritam’s Dil mein baji guitar for its hook and has similar body-shaking impact, with confident crooning […]

With Baby doll, it seems like composers Meet Bros Anjjan are yet to get over Truth Hurts’ Addictive – the same rythm regurgitated with a new, middling tune. Mustafa Zahid does well in Pranay Rijia’s serene, but largely droning Maine khud ko, while Chirantan Bhatt’s Lori of death joins the composer’s illustrious list of other […]

Jeet Ganguly, in his sole track, Suno na sangemarmar, deftly uses his Bengali tune, Ki kore toke, from Rangbaaz with a perfect choice in Arijit to croon it. Even the remix is pretty nifty! Of Shiraz Uppal’s two songs, Mere khuda is generic Pakistani pop, but he surprises with a very-Rahman’ish qawali in Daata di […]

Anvita Dutt’s lyrics stand out in Gulcharrey with her unusual choice of words almost all through; Raghu’s tune and music is upbeat and immediately appealing, besides the enthusiastic singing by Benny. Neeti Mohan’s music-less solo opening Khamakhaan is lovely and the song eventually builds into a thoroughly likeable, guitar’y ditty with enjoyable lyrics by Habib […]

Total Siyapa (Music review), Hindi – Ali Zafar

The title song, along with the quirky lyrics, dialogs and sounds, is good fun. Ali Zafar fares really well in Palat keri jaan, singing, writing and composing the lovely ballad. Nahi maloom has a captivating Middle-Eastern + Latino blend sound and is sung particularly well by Ali and Fariha Parvaiz. The composer-singer uses a reggae […]

Gulaab Gang (Music review), Hindi – Soumik Sen

Gulaabi‘s anthemic, prayer-like sound appeals, along with Malabika Brahma and Shilpa Rao’s vocals, and Neha Saraf’s rousing lyrics. Neha’s lyrics work in Dheemi dheemi too, with Kaushiki Chakraborty’s fantastic vocals. The desolate, melodious Ankhiyaan and the catchy, filmy-folk’ish Rang se are again Kaushiki’s show! Sharm laaj seems like an awkward 80s drunk song. Madhuri Dixit, […]

Harry’s not a Brahmachari has a frenzied techno sound that sits well atop the essentially Punjabi tune; Jazzy B and Divya Kumar seem perfect for the high-pitched song. I’m sorry tumse pyar ho gaya rides on Nikhil Paul George’s awesome vocals (and ably supported by Neeti Mohan and Mili Nair), but yes, Pritam’s spritely tune […]

Queen (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

London thumakda is the soundtrack’s most straight-forward and accessible song – simple, catchy tune, sung with earthy flavor by Labh Janjua with the right dollop of enthusiasm. O gujariya too falls in that zone – easy listening techno ditty with the right punch and disapassionately manic singing by Shefali and Nikhil. Badra bahaar sees Amit […]
