Shubha Mudgal headlines Jal de in style, the composing duo conjuring an expansive, Ahir Bhairav and Chakravakam-style sound. Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan and Suzanne’s vocal combination makes superb impact in the truly world music’ish You fill my life. Sonu sounds daringly different in the pulsating Zaalima, while Ambarish Das’s soulful vocals add depth to Paani […]

Subhash Ghai’ish chorus and Ismail Darbar’s own pulsating tune combo helps the title song. Tu sab kuch meanders along pointlessly, while Main mushtanda (music and lyrics by Ghai!) and Koshampa bring back the much-unnecessary parts of 90s music. Even with the subtle nod to Chaand chupa and Purvi-raag base, Kaisa hai dard seems labored. Kambal […]

Aaj laagi is earthy and a tad too simplistic, in Kailash Kher’s dependable vocals, backed by lovely sarangi. Aayi bahaar has extra punch in the orchestration headlined by sarangi to complement the Basant Bahar raaga. Sagar repeats the feat in Yaad saari, led by Kailash and the backgrounds working very well! Ronkini Gupta’s Kaise sukh […]

Offo goes back to the trio’s Dil chahta hai days, riding well on a heady hook and extra melody in the antaras. Locha-e-ulfat is punchy in all aspects, the rhythm, hook and the prominent instrumental piece. Mast magan holds the trio’s Dharma-trademark besides an awkward mridangam interlude, but the vocals by Arijit and Chinmayi make […]

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 […]
