Tujh sang lagee‘s faux-qawali sound is familiar, but likeable. Keerthi Sagathia’s Mujh mein tu holds a gorgeous tune, wonderfully sung, with guitar and violins perfectly laid in the background. Kreem’s own other version too sounds fantastic! Dharpakad‘s nursery-rhym’ish tune seems endearing thanks to Bappi Lahiri’s vocals and the violin-based orchestration Kreem skilfully manages. Himesh’s sole […]

Update: If you go by this tweet, the film is not lifted… is actually an official remake! Is that a first for Bhatts? No, this is not about music, but an interesting digression. Trust the Bhatts to lift plots repeatedly. I took one look at the trailer of Murder 3 and immediately remembered the Spanish […]

Top recent listens (December 2012)

Haravali pakhare & Kalla – Balak Palak (Marathi – Vishal Shekhar) Haravali pakhare has just about the most engrossing sound I have heard in recent times… wonderfully sung by Shekhar too!

Amrinder Gill’s rules over Rubaru, a delightful melody, fabulously orchestrated by Jaidev. Aaja bhangra and Laltain Nachdi are bhangra fare that deliver an enthusiastic high, […]

Mirchi (Music review), Telugu – Devi Sri Prasad

Chinna Ponnu’s Mirchi is high on the typically-Devi folk mix. Mika’s Yahoon yahoon is functionally catchy, while Devi’s effort in Kailash Kher’s Pandagala shows in the interestingly mounted rhythms. Barbie girl is lively – striking Middle Eastern and Latino base, and wonderfully sung by Suchitra and Jaspreet Jasz! Darlingey is the only track that seems […]

Bramfatura’s Vaazhkaiye is entirely within their characteristic moody electronica sound, with Siddharth Basrur doing a wonderful job with the vocals. Maria pitache is yet another Remo template – catchy, albeit done-to-death Goan music, passably sung by Vikram. But Remo’s other song, Lighthouse Symphony is a captivating serenade before it ventures into his vocal circus! Anirudh’s […]
