Despite the droning background and absurd lyrics, Caller tune cranks up an interesting tune, along with Neeraj Shridhar’s characteristic vocals. Energetic jhankaar beats style sound of Piya ke bazaar and Hum pagal nahin hai is catchy, much like Himesh’s simple, appealing tune; Himesh actually delivers the latter pretty well too! Khol de dil khi khidki […]

Swaroop Khan pulls off the pulsating Udaari well, but the remixed-Euphoria sound has its limits. The short Uljhi depends a lot on Arijit’s vocals and the guitar, and both don’t let the song down. Shafqat is the star of the haunting, sufi penance-like Bhugol – fairly interesting sound! Bol’s Indipop sound manages to hold the […]

Holiday (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Arijit’s delightful singing lifts the already gorgeous tune of Aaj dil shayarana. Pritam’s tune is unusually structured and makes fantastic use of violin the background. Irshad Kamil’s lyrics completely dominate the sombre Naina, Pritam opting for a Rahman’ish pensive sound and Arijit is great form again. Blame The Night is punchy techno dance done well, […]

Anu Malik’s ululating yell in Tarzan is the most annoying thing one could hear all year; it seriously comes in the way of Parichay’s otherwise functional dance track. Palash Sen’s Phacebook pyaar and Welcome Maiyya are plain horrendous, sounding like really bad bhojpuri songs. His last song 1-2-3 is off the Bhojpuri trip, but is […]

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 […]
