The title song is typical Honey Singh – the kind that sounds annoying, but would refuse to get out of the head thanks to its repetitive hooks. For his other song, Banjarey, Honey plays against type and the result is not bad at all! Raftaar’s Dhup chik is heady Punjabi techno that is simple and […]

Muskurane is a stunningly beautiful combo – the lyrics, Arijit’s soaring vocals and the soorthing arrangement! Mohammed Irfan’s slower Unplugged version, in comparison, seems laboured. Neeti Mohan does well in Darbadar phire, but Jeet’s arrangement works better than the disjoint tune. Jeet gets the despondent, Todi-based tune perfectly with Arijit’s vocals in Soney do, while […]

Ghoom gayi has a nice languorous groove, no doubt accentuated by Sunidhi’s vocals and Hitesh’s guitar backdrop. Swaroop Khan and Hitesh sound amateurish in the title song; the middling tune doesn’t help either. Hitesh sounds appalling in Sapnon ko, though the pensive tune is not bad at all. Javed Ali raises the soundtrack’s singing standard […]

Barring Kausar Munir’s use of ‘kathai* aankhen’, Rabba is pleasant, but contrived, with Mohit Chauhan valiantly trying to save it. Ditto with Tabah – Mohit is the bright spot in the familiar melody. Sajid-Wajid get their 3rd song right though – Raat bhar‘s foot-tapping techno sound works. Mustafa Zahid and Bilal Saeed’s Tere binaa is […]

Tequila wakila is a competently foot-tapping rehash of the typical Enrique/Ricky Martin sound, with great vocals by Shreya and Ankit. Ankit’s other composition, Sawaalon mein soars with its intriguing, sweeping tune thanks to Shreya’s fantastic vocals. Gopal, Anand, Pawan composed title song is adequately background’ish. The soundtrack’s highlight is Mithoon’s Shukra tera, a gorgeously serene […]

Kisse lambe depends a lot on Gulzar’s verses and Sukhwinder’s free-flowing vocals; the mid-way shift to Pakistani pop style are good, but the chorus is jarring. Lakeerein fares much better with a uniform texture and fantastic vocals by Papon (along with another, uncredited singer, like Hariharan, perhaps?), not to forget lovely lines by Gulzar. The […]

Ice Cream, despite cringe-worthy lyrics, is an enjoyable Pancham-Shankar Jaikishan mash-up. Himesh’s fascination for Tum hi ho is apparent in Dard dilo ko, while the Xpose theme is banal. Despite Honey Singh and Himesh’s fangled vocals, Hai apna dil‘s captivating tune salvages it! Its Blues Mix cranks up the speed, to impressive result. Ditto with […]

The very-guitary Yaari yaari is at a best passable ‘friendship’ song; hardly in line with the film title’s original, by Ali Haider. Yeh beetey din works considerably better as a lilting farewell song; its acoustic version, even more so! KK does wonderfully well in Dil aaj kal, a breezy and instantly likeable melody with a […]

Sanjeev’s Pancham imitation helps the title song and its reprise, though the other Pancham’ish melody, Kaafi nahi, featuring Asha Bhonsle, gets it better! Despite the Omkara’ish sound, Thaayein kare is middling, but Sanjeev nails the Vishal Bharadwaj’ish sound in Sulgi hui! Rekha Bharadwaj delivers the rhythmic folk Banna banni well; Saawan ki too holds a […]

One-song-per-soundtrack specialists Meet Bros Anjjan join Palash Muchhal for Party to banti hai – good fun, thanks to the ebullient rhythm. Of the three songs by Ram Sampath, Har had gange seems surprisingly bland and devoid of anything from Ram’s current standards, but the man makes up with Dharavi rap, a spunky kids rap featuring […]
