To ju hain sees Ankit churning his standard template to the hilt. Where Ankit really scores is in his other two – Shukrana starts off meanderingly, but soon a pumping rhythm takes over and lifts the song up, while Alif se has catchy techno break-beats that work well. Jeet’s title song has a Bond theme’ish […]

Sneha Khanwalkar’s Bach ke Bakshy is mind-bogglingly eclectic, with a curiously addictive sound! Byomkesh In Love, by alt-rock band Blek is a less impressive reworking of their own superlative 2012 song Fog + Strobe. Joint Family’s Life’s a bitch and electro-alt-punk duo Mode.AKA’s Chase in Chinatown are fashionably and flamboyantly grungy, while Peter Cat Recording […]

Uzair Jaiswal mildly spruces up his 2010 Tere bin and sings it too, sleepily. The female version is by Tulsi Kumar… period. Amaal Malik’s lone song, Saiyaan superstar, is insipid. Dr.Zeus hands Kanika Kapoor a super catchy Desi look and she does a great job. Tony Kakkar’s Khuda bhi is jaded Bhatt template, while his […]

Yo Yo Honey Singh’s Birthday bash is his standard one-hook, barely functional song. Dr.Zeus’ Tipsy hogai has a nice enough Latin twang to tide over the predictable tune, while Indeep Bakshi’s Tere liye is adequately soporific. Tiger Style’s (!) Zaalim dilli and Milind Gaba’s Saddi dilli are terribly templatized Punjabi ditties, the former salvaged only […]

DJ‘s appeal is primarily the catchy music and that it delivers darn well. Sunidhi, along with the occasional Ali Zafar, handle the middling tune adequately. Bulbul goes full-on desi dance dhamaka, Mumbaiya style, and in Himesh Reshammiya and Shreya Ghoshal’s vocals, it barely makes an impact. Anu Malik and Mika maon through Line laga in […]

Hunterrr (Music review), Hindi – Khamosh Shah

Hunterrr 303 is a neat throwback to the Bappi disco period, while Chori chori is a sedate old-world melody with a new coating – very listenable, in Arijit and Sona Mohapatra’s vocals. Thaali hai khaali and Amit Trivedi-sung Bachpan have corny, bizarre lyrics; the former breezes through with catchy charm and the latter is just […]

Sanjeev Darshan pitch in with a strong Chhil gaye naina with the right amount of grunge in it. Mohit Chauhan, Shilpa Rao and Arijit adorn Le chal in 3 versions, a languorous composition by Bann Chakraborty that’s wonderfully lounge’ish, but it’s the fourth, differentiated variant, Khoney de, featuring Mohit and Neeti that tops all! Composers […]

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 […]
