april2017

Hindi

Haareya, Yeh jawani teri, Iss tarah & Khol de baahein – Meri Pyaari Bindu (Sachin-Jigar)

Murshida – Begum Jaan (Anu Malik)

Hoor – Hindi Medium (Sachin-Jigar)

Tamil

Aalangiliye, Karukku kallangolu & Andha madhiri ponna – Neruppuda (Sean Roldan)

Yemma yea azhagamma, Silu silu & Pachai uduthiya – Vanamagan (Harris Jayaraj)

Adi vaadi thimiraa, Title theme song, Karu Karunnu, Carratu Pottazhagaa & Time Passukkosaram – Magalir Mattum (Ghibran)

Ettoorum kekkum – Thondan (Justin Prabhakaran)

Mella mella, Bodhai poo & Maya masthava – Maayavan (Ghibran)

Ithuvarai naan (Chinmayi version) & Mattikkiten – Padai Veeran (Karthik Raja)

Akka maga & Uravey – Thiri (Ajesh)

Nee illai endraal & Mannippaaya – 8 Thottakkal (Sundaramurthy KS)

Telugu

Kanulake teliyani – Mister (Mickey J Meyer)

Egire, O Maya & Thanevaro – Venkatapuram (Achu)

Malayalam

Vaanam thilathilakkanu – Comrade In America CIA (Gopi Sundar)
Gopi doesn’t demand much from his star singer, Dulquer, but hands him a multi-lingual (though he handles only one language, leaving the Spanish part to Carolina and the Hindi part to Mohammed Maqbool Mansoor) song that is immediately catchy.

Aakaasham panthal – Rakshadhikari Baiju Oppu (Bijibal)
Innately simple and charming, espousing the beauty and life of innards of Kerala. Who better than Bijibal to articulate it with music!

Va va vaikaathe – Puthan Panam (Shaan Rahman)
A lot like Enne Thallendammaava (from Oru Vadakkan Selfie; not just that they are both sung by Vineeth Srinivasan), but still a lot likeable.
Listen to the song on Saavn.

Ko ko kozhi – The Great Father (Gopi Sunder)
Prarthana and Pratheeksha’s lead vocals, along with the kids’ chorus helps Gopi’s simple, almost rhyme-style Christmas song.

Oruvakkinal – 1971 Beyond Borders (Rahul Subrahmanian)
Rahul’s music is expansive, with lovely sweeping strings. M G Sreekumar lends the song the needed gravitas, along with Shweta Mohan.

Joleem kooleem, Omal chiriyo & Kabadi kabadi – Georgettan’s Pooram (Gopi Sundar)

Madhumatiye & Theyyum thindaka – Sakhavu (Prashant Pillai)

Aaro nenjil, Wow Song & Innalekalil – Godha (Shaan Rahman)

Kannada

Chukkubukku Railige – Eleyaru Naavu Geleyaru (Anoop Seelin)
Anoop’s handling of the kids’ chorus/voices is mighty good, though the tune and rhythm are predictable. The kids make it worthwhile, though.

    Good list! On the topic of Haareya from Meri Pyaari Bindu, is it just me or is this track almost perfect for Ayushman Khurana? Why is Arijit singing it on the soundtrack when Ayushman Khurana is a talented singer (or why not just have a reprise version on the soundtrack)? Reminds me of Dear Zindagi with the two tracks that were perfect for Ali Zafar, but were sung by Arijit on the soundtrack (but by Zafar in the actual film)

    Also, I imagine you’ll have a review of Half Girlfriend up soon. Very curious to hear your thoughts.

      Yes, Haareya seems tailor-made for Aayushman’s range/voice and it is surprising that the actor-singer didn’t get to sing it himself!

      Half Girlfriend, soon. Was on vacation last week 🙂
