Javed-Mohsin’s DJ bajega is an obvious ‘item’ number pandering to post-drunk state of listeners, lyrics and rhythm-wise. With Amjad-Nadeem’s Jugni peeke tight hai and Dr.Zeus’s Bam bam, it’s only lyrics-wise. Tanishk Bagchi’s Samadar has its middle-eastern sound to keep it at good stead despite droning lyrics. Dr.Zeus closes the album with Billi kat gayee that […]

Shaandaar (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

In Gulaabo, Vishal Dadlani’s swagger rocks the song, but the horn section is no less impressive given how it holds the song. Anusha Mani comes out with guns blazing in ‘zara gandh pehlado’, as does Amit, on the keyboard, producing some zingy retro-pop. The abrupt title callout in Shaam Shaandaar is as pleasant as expecting […]

Add Bollywood’s garish excesses to an inherently simple and gorgeous folk tune, you get the film’s version of Tung tung. It only forces you to head to Sneha’s own original. Manj Musik gets both his tracks right – Singh aur Kaur is a punchy Punjabi rap package with a catchy hook, and Mahi aaja has […]

Talvar (Music review), Hindi – Vishal Bhardwaj

Pakistani singer Arooj Aftab is the soul of Insaaf. She brings her best known trait—breathy vocals that rocked her cover versions of Pakistan’s and the sub-continent’s iconic classics—to add stupendous value to Vishal’s minimal sound. Vishal does an encore with Shaam ke saaye, using Arijit’s voice to create sheer magic in an almost-Pancham tune with […]

Devi Sri Prasad faithfully recreates his Telugu hit for Daddy Mummy, with the Tamil version’s lyrics. It remains absurdly catchy. Yo Yo Honey Singh’s Aankhon aankhon is right up there with Daddy Mummy for its thumpy catchiness and marginally better lyrics. Arko’s recreation of Sajid-Wajid’s original for Sonu Nigam’s Deewana, Iss qadar pyar works easily […]

Lip to lip is a breezy faux-Punjabi number that sees Ritu Pathak in great form, ably supported by Nikhil D’Souza and some cool sax interludes. Sarfira‘s largely predictable techno sound gets better only by Neeti Mohan and Siddharth Mahadevan’s vocals, much like Sau aasoon‘s familiar pathos made listenable by Shankar’s searing singing. Jaago mohan pyaare‘s […]

Amaal’s two songs – Main hoon hero and O Khuda – are engaging, and Armaan sings it with the right feel. In Main hoon’s other version, Amaal performs musical-photoshop on Salman Khan’s vocals. Jassi Katyal’s Yadaan teriyaan is maudlin, dated pathos. Meet Bros Anjjan’s Dance ke legend is loaded with every stock bit imaginable, on […]

Phantom (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Afghan jalebi, beyond the standardized Central Asian folk tune, is incredibly catchy thanks to Pritam’s clever and pulsating arrangements. While Asrar and Akhtar’s versions are identical, Akhtar’s second, Dumbek version goes one step forward in rhythmic catchiness. Its 4th version, by Nakash Aziz, pales in comparison due to a weaker voice. Saware rides on Arijit’s […]

NW1W. Atrocious mess, between 7 credited composers (9, if you consider Meet Bros Anjjan as 3 individual composers). Keywords: Not Welcome Back, Anu Malik, Meet Bros Anjjan, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Siddhant Madhav, Mika Singh, Music MG, Abhishek Ray

Brothers Anthem, as the name indicates, holds an anthemic sound and Vishal Dadlani powers it well, even though it’s the pulsating orchestration that stands out! The composing duo repackage their Marathi song from Jatra to great effect in Mera naam Mary that sizzles with Chinmayi’s rendition. Shreya’s version of Gaaye jaa rules over Mohammed Irfan’s, […]
