Milliblog’s Top Recent Listens – June 2017

Posted by Karthik

Single Saavn playlist of all the songs: (barring Role Models, in Malayalam, and Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deewana Tha, in Hindi, that are not available on Saavn)

Hindi

Freaking Life, Chal kahin door, Muafi mushkil and Be nazaara – Mom (A R Rahman)

Ik vaari aa and Main tera boyfriend – Raabta (JAM8, T-Series)

Radio, Tinka tinka, Naach meri jaan and Main agar – Tubelight (Pritam)

Main hoon, Feel The Rhythm and Beparwah – Munna Michael (Tanishk Baagchi, Pranaay and Gourov-Roshin)

Aawari – Shab (Mithoon)

Title song – Ek Haseena Thi Ek Deewana Tha (Nadeem)

Tamil

Paathum paakkaama and Annamaare ayyamaare – Kurangu Bommai (B.Ajaneesh Loknath)

Sandalee, Uruttu kannala and Nenje nenje – Sema (G.V. Prakash Kumar)

Karuppu vellai, Oru Katha Sollatta?, Tasakku tasakku, Yaanji, Pogatha yennavittu and Ghetto Chase – Vikram Vedha (Sam C.S.)

Iraivanai thandha and Dhooram nillu – Velai Illa Pattadhaari 2 (Sean Roldan)

Vaadi nee va – Meesaya Murukku (Hiphop Tamizha)
The soundtrack is more of what one expects from the Hiphop Tamizha duo, but this one song, at least, has an incredibly mind-worm’ish hook that makes for a compelling listen!

Telugu

Kaadhal kaadhal – Kaadhali (Prasan Praveen Shyam)

Gudilo badilo – DJ: Duvvada Jagannadham (Devi Sri Prasad)

Unnatundi gundey and Adiga adiga – Ninnu Kori (Gopi Sundar)

Ye vaipu choostunna, Baanisa, Eppudu Modalaindo, Party Just Started, Kaalam Nippulaa Kaalchutunde and Praayam Inthera – Chandamama Raave (Shravan)

Ninnu chudaganey – June 1:43 (Shravan)
Cheesy lyrics, yes, but Karthik infuses enough life into the likeable, lilting melody. Shravan’s music is predictable, but also has the spark.

Milamilamila mandari and Anukundantha – Rendu Rellu Aaru (Vijai Bulganin)
Vijai who made a non-descript debut in Sapthagiri Express seems slightly more in control in Rendu Rellu Aaru. His chocie of Pradeep Kumar for Anukundantha gets him fantastic results for the soulful, minimally orchestrated melody while Milamilamila mandari’s glitzy techno sound amps up the pleasant tune it holds.

Malayalam

Ozhukiyozhuki – Oru Cinemaakkaran (Bijibal)

Vaa kuruvi and Nirame maayalle (both versions) – Vilakkumaram (Sanjeev T)

Thechille penne, Theru there ororo and Kootukettu – Role Models (Gopi Sundar)

Kannile poika and Varum varum – Thondimuthalum Dhriksaakshiyum (Bijibal)
Kannile poika could almost be the soul sister to the director-composer’s earlier, Idukki, from Maheshinte Prathikaaram given the sound of water enveloping both songs set to a simpler, nostalgic whiff of a tune. Varum varum’s classic rock format is very appealing too, though a tad plain barring Bijibal’s excellent vocals.

Kannada

Mula mula and Janaganamana – Rajahamsa (Joshua Sridhar)

Marete hodenu and Marete hodenu (Unplugged) – Dayavittu Gamanisi (Anoop Seelin)
Anoop’s (most possibly) Charukesi raaga coated melody is an easy listen. V.Pradeep Kumar seems to be everywhere these days, but not composing and focusing on singing! After Anukundantha from the Telugu soundtrack of Rendu Rellu Aaru (above), here he is in Kannada, elevating a song with his endearing vocals! The other version is a lovely listen too, featuring leading man Vasishta N. Simha’s more raw’ish voice that adds a new dimension to the song.

Marathi

Chuktay, Maze tuze and Aga aik na – Muramba (Hrishikesh-Saurabh-Jasraj)

Punjabi

Hawa vich, Ho gaya talli and Glorious gallan – Super Singh (Jatinder Shah)

Indipop

The entire album! – Notun Puhor (Papon)
