Sachin’s singing is clearly over the top in Hairat zada hoon main, but Ravindra Jain’s tune and orchestration has a pleasant ring to it, in a nostalgic way. Ek farishta, on the other hand, is over the top in its tune, accentuated by Kavita Seth’s labored vocals. Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se’s title song is interestingly […]

Haan yahi pyaar hai overdoses on cliched lyrics (can the government declare ‘Dheere dheere haule haule’ as an illegal phrase), but has a charming ring to it. Wake up now sounds like poor man’s Vishal Shekhar; all sound with no zing, while Mahi mahi is massively cringe-worthy Punjabi template. Daler and Mamta Sharma’s Katto gilehri […]

Abhijit Hegde Patil’s Someone Somebody is blasé; its remix, even more so. George Theofanous’s Mile na tu makes up with some enthusiasm, but fails to make any impact. Sajid-Wajid’s title song is incredibly insipid that it’s a wonder that the duo were called in to compose this. That leaves Pritam with 3 remaining tracks of […]

Aravaan (Music review), Tamil – Karthik

Oruvaan iruvaan goes about in timeworn style to introduce the hero, but Oore […]

Thalabadi‘s lively tune carries it through, with generous help from Shankar Mahadevan’s vocals, while Chuttu chuttu‘s simple and catchy tune comfortably sails past the sense of ennui the song creates overall. Oopiri is where Selvaganesh stands out, ably aided by Karthik and Chinmayi; the seemingly Naatai-based melody is gorgeous! Solar Sai’s Haiyayo is an amusing […]

Top recent listens (September 2011)

Dheaon dheaon, Baatein shuru – Mujhse Fraaandhsip Karoge (Hindi – Raghu Dixit) As I had noted in my review, Raghu Dixit’s Bollywood debut doesn’t seem to do justice to the kind of music he has produced in Kannada. But that doesn’t mean it’s not good – it is! Dheaon dheaon is super catchy with it’s […]
