Sivaji (Tamil – A R Rahman)

Balleilakka has intentionally-likeable lyrics but is pretty mundane otherwise. Athiradee tests Rahman’s vocals and its unusual tune and orchestration pattern sounds interesting. Vaaji vaaji is very catchy thanks to a predictable rhythm sequence and Blaaze adds his usual mishmash in The Boss. Sahana is no doubt melodious, but a bit staid for a Rajinikant starrer, […]

Lord, protect us from IndiaGlitz’s nonsense!

IndiaGlitz must be naive to do pieces like this. IndiaGlitz’s banner is very apparent in some shots of the film’s promo and it’s evident that they’re marketing partners for the film. Add to it, dumb sentences like ‘…such a feet has been achieved‘! And, ‘Speculations are that the album would stay in the Top 10 […]

Allantha doorala with its simple rhythm and basic, but captivating interludes, is a nostalgia trip down to the Ilayaraja songs that we grew up with – SPB adding significant appeal. Adnan rocks in the romping Cheli chamaku. Yuvan brings his punchy techno stuff back, in the haunting Manasa mannichamma. Naa manasuki also adds pep with […]

Pray For Me Brother (A R Rahman, Blaaze)

Judging by its intentions, PFMB would be way up there. Musically, Rahman treads a beaten path with a pop’ish sound wrapped in R&B influences. The tune is addictive enough and those desi tweaks are indeed charming. The video, despite the promise Bharatbala displayed in Vande Mataram and Hari Om, is a bit abstract, with gimmicky […]

Munna (Telugu – Harris Jeyaraj)

Anushka’s husky overtones in Chamakuro are methodically slow and fetching. Kadhulu kadhulu starts of wonderfully well but the recycled parts from Pachaikili Muthucharam’s Karu karu catches you completely unaware. This, even as the soundtrack has a more direct, adequately modified, but ultimately mishmash, Telugu version of Karu karu in Baga baga! Shankar Mahadevan sounds quite […]

Vinodayatra (Malayalam – Ilayaraja)

It’s a rather strange dual dichotomy actually. Firstly, the man gives us his best in languages other than Tamil, namely Telugu and Malayalam. The second one is that while two of Vinodayatra’s tracks are embarrassingly archaic, complete with exasperating orchestration and obsolete tunes, the other two are vintage Raja-styled gems. Kaiyetha kombathu is an exquisite […]

Metro (Hindi – Pritam)

Metro is Pritam’s finest effort yet – the composer gives us an excellent, themed soundtrack with the kind of sound we have come to love from Pakistani bands! Band Metro, as the CD sleeve calls the group, produces some truly wonderful stuff – KK’s stunning vocals Alvida & O meri jaan being the best! James […]

RMIM Puraskar 2006

It was a very proud moment for me when Vinay mailed me that I have been recommended by a few people to be a judge for RMIM Puraskar 2006. So, there I was listening to the nominated tracks and making my choice…it has all been a wonderful experience! The polling and the whole planning was […]

Sivaji (Tamil – A R Rahman, sneak preview!)

One more eagerly expected Rahman soundtrack gets leaked – just three tracks, though! Vaaji vaaji is definitely very catchy – but a tad too simplistic with a predictable rhythm sequence. Sahana is pretty melodious, even as it’s a bit staid for a Rajinikanth starrer! Oru koodai sunlight is bound to catch you completely off-guard with […]
