Golmaal

The title track is uber cool and before long you’re humming it non-stop as Anushka sounds hep! The prominent hook really hooks you. Your eyes go wide and jaws drop as Aage peeche starts! Whoa…that 50s retro feel is groovy dudes! Sneha Pant does a fab job of Noorjahanizing her voice! Javed Ali has a […]

Aran

Mugilae and Pooncholai are reminiscent of Rahman’s melodies, complete with carnatic, alternately-pitched-choruses et all as interludes. The tracks do manage to excite you since they blend in melody and a mod orchestration well. And, Mugilae gains significantly from Srinivas’ vocals. Joshua returns to his familiar turf in Thottaal. Racy…and barely able to grasp the words. […]

Pyar ke side effects

Pyaar Karke is one hip track that has you grooving immediately…Labh Jajua and rapsters Bob & Suzy completely rock! Dil tod ke na’s arrangements are mighty hip too while the qawali’sh tune and vocals – both Rakesh Pandit’s and the more racy Mika-Smooch-Singh’s, sound fantastic! Alisha’s version of the flashy, hip-hop’ish Bad Boy is better […]

Yun hota toh kya hota

Viju Shah is in his usual form in the techno-mellow title song. Neat track with Kunal and Sunidhi doing a great job! Ek baar jaana is an elaborate techno-folk that is catchy ‘cos of its repetitive words and rhythm. Out of the other filler tracks that Times Music shoves on us, only Sowmya Raoh’s Pyaar […]

Something Something Unakkum Enakkum

Devi Sri Prasad tries his luck in Tamil again, but with strong Andhra flavor since the soundtrack largely reuses the Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana’s tunes. Un Paarvayil and Pooparikka are the picks of the album, with good arrangements and hummable tunes. Aagaayam and Kozhi Veda Kozhi reek too much of Telugu and fall flat. Jassie Gift’s Kiliye […]

The Killer

That the film is an unabashed copy of the Tom Cruise starrer Collateral is a sure sign of skeletons tumbling out of the songs too, what with Bhatt’s reputation of being unapologetic plagiarist and Arabic and Spanish words thrown in….! Well, Hibbaki has a great groove while Alisha manages the raunchy Abhi toh mein with […]

Ahista Ahista

The title song is awesome, with fab vocals & very imaginative orchestration. Ishq ne and Aawan akhiyan are both rhythmic & catchy…impress instantly! Despite the Himesh overdose, Love you unconditionally’s infectious rhythm and the sufi-feel of Allah Kare stay on your mind. KK takes on from Himesh in Tanha tere bagair and Himesh the composer […]

Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna

SEL give into the Johar school of music for the melodious title song while maintaining some of their sounds. Shafqat is the star of Mitwa, but the percussion is getting rather repetitive! Though not similar tune-wise, Where’s the party and Rock n Roll Soniye seem to be modeled along Its the time to disco and […]

Kedi

Aadhivaasi, Vaanam pola & Chumma go the whole hog in creating mod sounds though you don’t quite carry the tunes home. College life is unlikely to be sung in campuses, despite the desperate attempt at being student-friendly while Kedi Paiya with its nursery rhyme-like tune and moronic lyrics manages to get bang on one’s nerves. […]

Mehfuz

To be fair, Soneya, Mehfuz and Roshni make for good listens. Dil has an enjoyable massy rhythm, Rab Jaane’s structure hooks your attention, the arrangements of the traditional Doha and the filmi sounding Kyna’s Song are more-than-decent. A few of the other tracks hopelessly have the beginning-of-Indi-English-pop sound a la Indus Creed. Its perhaps Palash’s […]
