Lucky (Music review), Kannada – Arjun Janya

Hoovina santhege is very, very Pritam’ish – basic, functional rhythm and a slow, catchy tune – and is a good listen. Baba Sehgal’s Chennagidiyalle is strictly perfunctory with nothing standing out – the tune or the hook. Mandyadinda has an addictive folk touch to it, at least in parts; Ravi Bansare’s earthy voice helps significantly. […]

Lachhamma has a coarse, street-smart tone to it – curiously catchy! O priya priya is tuneful, but is also a very standard melody; Adnan’s vocals do help and so does the heroine, Nithya Menon’s! Chinnadhana, the last of the three songs by Anup Rubens, is his best in the soundtrack – simple, rhythmic and addictive […]

With its Raja-styled violins and mesmerizing vocals by Chitra, Ponnodu poovai is fabulous! The tune is typical Sharreth…seemingly complex, but beautifully crafted. Yesudas is effortless in the other version, as always! Mano’s Kannaram thumbi‘s percussion is interesting for the periods where it doesn’t play; this is a song that revels in its breaks. Rajalakshmi, in […]

Sura sura sundara holds its mock semi-classical base very well. Love all seems similar to Cher’s Dov’è l’amore and meanders pointlessly, but Anthare ivananna is incredibly rhythmic and catchy, in typical Gurukiran fashion – Gururaj Hoskote’s vocals, in particular, is apt! Rajesh Krishnan handles the haunting melody of Ninnindane really well even as Gurukiran’s orchestration […]

Rang (Music review), Hindi – Nadeem Shravan

If there’s anything in recent times that deserves the ‘Blast from the Past’ tag, it’d be the new Rang soundtrack. While everything is consistently a decade old, Abhijeet’s Ye meri dua and Babul Supriyo’s Ye to mumkin ji nahin are actually good in a nostalgic way. Khuda ki kasam tries hard but is embarrassingly repetitive, […]

What kind of music reviewer am I?

This is going to be tough, but I need to get this off my chest. Milliblog is 5+ years old. I have ‘reviewed’ 100s of soundtracks across languages. Initially when people used to mail me that they love my reviews and that I have great music sense, I used to feel good. After 5+ years, […]
