Milliblog’s Top Recent Listens – October 2016

Posted by Karthik

Trying this new: listen to (almost) all the songs from this list via Saavn in one playlist

Note: This playlist does not include songs from Chennai 600028 II: Second Innings (Tamil), Aanandam, Team 5 and Thoppil Joppan (Malayalam) since they are not available on Saavn yet.


Darkhaast – Shivaay (Mithoon)

Teri fariyad and Dil nawaziyan – Tum Bin 2 (Ankit Tiwari)

Title song, Channa mereya and Alizeh – Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (Pritam)

Listen to Alizeh on Saavn.


Sugar Mint-u Kari – Bruce Lee (G.V.Prakash Kumar)
That a GVP starrer has music by another composer is news by itself (though he is acting in a film with music by Rahman, of course). But the 3 song soundtrack has 2 songs by Ganesan Sekar and the only listenable song is by GVP himself… this lively rock ‘n roll song sung by GVP and M.M.Manasi.

Oyaa oyaa and Dhikku dhikku – Kaashmora (Santhosh Narayanan)

Mazhai ingillaye and Rotora paadhayile – Ammani (K)

Sirukki vaasam and Ei suzhali – Kodi (Santhosh Narayanan)

Idhukkuthaanae aasappattain, Yaenadi, Yaenadi (Shreya Ghoshal solo) and Andha pulla manasa – Adhagappattathu Magajanangalay (D.Imman)

Idhu kadhaiya and Nee Kidaithai – Chennai 600028 II: Second Innings (Yuvan Shankar Raja)
Listen to the songs on DooPaaDoo: Idhu kadhaiya |

Neee, Naan ini and Ennullae – Yaakkai (Yuvan Shankar Raja)

Nee tholaindhaayo, En pulse yethitu and Un kadhal irundhal – Kavalai Vendam (Leon James)

Naan konjam karuppu thaan and Idhayam idhayam – Kaththi Sandai (Hiphop Tamizha)

Hey Paathu podi and Iravinil Aattam – Kadavul Irukan Kumaru (G.V.Prakash Kumar)

Asathuthe – Rubaai (D.Imman)


Ela ela ela – ISM (Anup Rubens)


Payye veesum and Khule raston pe – Aanandam (Sachin Warrier)

Ororo kunjichodum and Minni chinnum – Kolumittayi (Sreeraj Sahajan)

Megha pakshi and Neela shankhu pushpame – Team 5 (Gopi Sundar)

Chil chinchilamai – Thoppil Joppan (Vidyasagar)


Thangaali – Santhu Straight Forward (V.Harikrishna)
Looks like the makers of the film were happy with the mere fact that they have Kannada industry’s top pair and gave Hari a free hand to whatever he wanted. The result is that barring this one song by Sonu Nigam, the rest falls flat! This one though is very well done, with a wonderfully rhythmic sound and a funny faux-lullaby chorus. Sonu, as usual, is fantastic!

News nodi and Baduke baduka kalisu – Rama Rama Re (Vasuki Vaibhav)

Jilka jilka, Jogulave, Mugilu belmugilu and Baana thoredhu neeli – Pushpaka Vimana (Charan Raj)


Neeye – Phani Kalyan (Singers, in Tamil: Yazin Nizar and Sharanya Srinivas)
That Phani Kalyan is a protégé of A R Rahman is mighty apparent in the way the tune is constructed and orchestrated. Not to take anything away from Phani, the melody is wonderfully rich and flows as seamless as the lead dancers move all across the music video (featuring Shreya Deshpande and Niranjan Harishth, and choreographed by Vishwakiran Nambi) at appears for the song, and is an innate part of the song.

The Storm – Donn Bhatt (Album: Connected)
A recent Indian album that I loved! Donn Bhatt’s sound is electronica, something that I don’t pick up very often, but this one clearly is a lot likeable and that too, instantly. The best of the album is The Storm, with wonderful sarangi by Suhail Yusuf Khan!
