The title song and Baatein ye kabhi na are vintage Jeet – wonderfully mellifluous and easily likeable, thanks also to Arijit’s vocals. Palak is darn good in the latter’s other version too, while the title song’s Unplugged version is Arijit’s show all the way. Bobby Imran’s lone tune, Tu har lamha (and its Anupam Amod-sung […]

Ankit Tiwari plays with Katra katra‘s backgrounds impressively, and nails the endearing tune as well, besides singing it really well, along with Prakriti Kakar. Mithoon’s Awaara has a tune that is both familiar and oddly enough, middlingly sung by both Altamash Faridi and Saim Bhatt. Jeet’s Chand aasmano se laapata is right up his alley […]

G V Prakash Kumar sounds awkward in Sooraj hai kahaan; the generic tune doesn’t help either. But the composer makes up for it in Papa, a poignant melody that he hands over to dependable Shilpa Rao. Even Nichod de, beyond its limited item-number aspirations, works, thanks to GVP keeping it simple and catchy, along with […]

Aambala (Music review), Tamil – Hip Hop Tamizha

Madras to Madurai is wonderfully raucous; lays on its catchy, loud rhythm thick and in-your-face, and stays at it till you start moving your feet and shoulder. Vaa vaa has a super cool sound that’s instantly catchy! Mohit Chauhan, Amrita Shekar deliver it darn well too! The two songs sung by Hip Hop Tamizha – […]

Nanbenda (Music review), Tamil – Harris Jayaraj

Enai marubadi brings back memories of Harris’ better form days… till a lady not-so-helpfully pitches in with gibberish humming. Still, good listen – lively tune, well sung by Vijay Prakash. Oorellaam‘s highlight is integrating ‘Nayantara’ aptly in the lyrics – besides the pleasant tune, the electric guitar playing veena’ishly and Unnikrishnan-Bombay Jayashree’s vocals. Nee sunno […]

Beeruva (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Bye bye bye nails the simple, foot-tapping tune really well – instantly likeable tune, easy on the ears, thanks also to Nivas’ singing. Chinnadana chinnadana too is adequately catchy, but for the Thaman template stock-rhythm playing peekaboo generously. Deepak handles Cheliya cheliya‘s sweeping melody well, and Thaman too keeps the backgrounds minimally techno’ish and interesting. […]

Sonu’s vocals rock Saiyyan bina, an eclectic concoction laid over chaste Hindi lyrics, that ends on a scintillating note! Paane chala‘s addictively simple tune gets better as it progresses, though the digital additions to Sonu’s voice jars. Khamaka‘s flamboyant sound is fantastic and Sonu manages the oddly flowing lyrics in his versatile voice beautifully. Walida […]

Beyond the catchy rhythm of Vaiyambatti lies a lovely tune, with the right amount of punch, and most importantly, Vairamuthu’s absorbing lyrics espousing the blissful living of tribals in the hills. That it is also wonderfully sung by Anthony Dassan and Priyadarshini is the icing! Kondaatamae‘s reasonably monotonous background don’t pull the song down given […]

Kakki Sattai (Music review), Tamil – Anirudh

The title song has all the necessary coolth, topped by Vishal Dadlani’s funky vocals. Kadhal kan kattudhe sees Anirudh join Shakthishree Gopalan to deliver a very pleasant, but now-predictable, Anirudh’ish melody. I’m so cool is mighty cool till Sivakarthikeyan’s ‘Wow, what a music’ shoutout! Still, the package and chorus clicks well. Anthony Dasan gets a […]

The title song has all the pointless signs of a standard-issue Kannada film hero intro song – raising the hero’s stature to that of God and sing his praises. Pooja AV and Gana Ulaganathan try their best in lifting the sagging spirit of the supposed kuthu track Dummaangoli, but it just falls flat and meanders […]
