Kailash and Rahat offer their dependably good vocals in Tak dhoom and the song too flows smoothly with a lilting hook, despite the predictable package. Daagh de is incoherent and outdated, but Kailash gets Rekha Bharadwaj to add gravitas to the item’ish Patnewaali, that helps it surface beyond its templatized sound. The soundtrack’s highlight is […]

Dukki tikki obviously rehashes snatches of Variya from Pudhupettai, but what’s more intriguing is that it sounds more like a Thaman song than Yuvan’s! But he channelises the Bhatt-clan sound in his own way well in Tere hoke – thanks to Arijit too! Shweta Pandit’s reprise too is an excellent variant, orchestrated differently. Of the […]

The title song is a pleasant, catchy power qawali sung with the perfect verve by Javed Ali and Sunidhi – lovely listen! Mannat starts off dreamily, but eventually – and disappointingly – moves on to Sanjay Leela Bhansali territory, thereby diluting the impact completely. Rangreli, despite the energetic sound, is outdated 90s music. Ditto with […]

Johnny Johnny is insanely catchy and with such intoxicating lyrics that it may just be banned in Gujarat! Priya is particularly fantastic with the female vocals! Veerey di wedding treads on similar territory, and gets at least the hook bang-on! Tera naam doon is breezy enough melody and sung well by Atif and Shalmali, but […]

Mikey mcCleary adds interesting layers to Gimme Pizza, mixing rap, reggae and sitar to a funky, frenetic coherence! The acoustic version of Saurabh Kalsi’s Tum chal diye is gorgeous – breezy guitar mixed with Arjun Kanungo’s endearing vocals. The reprise expands on the song’s musicscape significantly, to an interesting, Mohit Suri’ish effect! Shamir Tandon’s Haddiwali […]

Jumme ki raat has a definite Pancham swagger, but Himesh’s one hook repetition snuffs its life out. Mika sings it better, while Salman croaks uncomfortably. Himesh’s other song, Tu hi tu, is an engaging melody undone by its monotonous music; Neeti and Mohd. Irfan do well in their versions, while the digital corrections are mighty […]

Of the three songs by Sharib-Toshi, ironically, the only song that works is their recreation of Jawad Ahmed’s original, Samjhawan that is spruced up well, with engaging vocals by Arijit Singh and Shreya Ghoshal. The other two, Saturday (another recreation, original belonging to The Titans and Badshah) and Emotional fool are regulation style dance tracks. […]

More than that unique guitar, Ab main‘s brass section adds great value to Raghu Dixit’s utilitarian tune. His other song, Waakeyi, is a lovely, feathery ode to love. Vir Das bawls through Warren Mendonsa and Sid Coutto-composed Pyaar hai kutti cheez, while Shivi Kashyap composes and sings the catchy techno tune of Aisi hi hoon […]

Arko Pravo Mukherjee’s recreation of Laxmikant Pyarelal’s Dayavaan number, Aaj phir tumpe is pretty good, though much credit is due to the original’s tune, besides Arijit and Samira Koppikar’s vocals. There is a remix of this remix too, funnily, in the soundtrack! Kabhi aayine, by Rashid Khan, is typical Mohit Suri musical formula; limited impact. […]

Jashn has a pleasant, easy charm, with quirky sounds spoofing South Indian music and fantastic singing by Shreya Ghoshal! Tu is exquisite! Shreya’s spritely, very-Bengali sounding part works beautifuly with Papon’s gorgeous ghazal tune and Shantanu’s veena (or, sitar?) interludes go really well too! The song’s Reprise, with Papon and Shreya’s voices swapped, is an […]
