Milliblog’s Top Recent Listens – August 2017

Posted by Karthik

Single Saavn playlist of (almost) all the songs
(missing songs: Simran’s Baras Ja, all 4 songs from Velipadinte Pusthakam, 3 songs from Mugulu Nage and Chintamani by Raman & Jirka)

Hindi

Sweet tera drama, Nazm and Bairaagi – Bareilly Ki Barfi (Tanishk Bagchi, Arko, Samira Koppikar)

Laagi na choote, Chandralekha and Bandook meri laila – A Gentleman (Sachin-Jigar)

Kaavaan kaavaan, Rangdaari, Meer-e-kaarwan and Baaki Rab pe – Lucknow Central (Arjunna Harjaie, Rochak Kohli, Tanishk Bagchi, Mychael Danna)

Barfani, Ghungta and Chulbuli – Babumoshai Bandookbaaz (Gaurav Dagaonkar)

Lagdi hai thaai, Pinjra tod ke, Baras ja, Majaa ni life and Title song – Simran (Sachin-Jigar)

Kho diya and Trippy trippy – Bhoomi (Sachin-Jigar)

Mere rashke qamar and Socha hai – Baadshaho (Tanishk Bagchi)

Kanha – Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (Tanishk-Vayu)

Tamil

Surviva, Thalai viduthalai and Kadhalada – Vivegam (Anirudh)

On nenappu, Tappu tippu and Sunday na – Kathanayagan (Sean Roldan)

Iravil varukira, Abimaaniye, Title song and Ayyo ayyo theri ponnuda – En Aaloda Seruppa Kaanom (Ishaan Dev)

Telugu

Kannu kannu kalisai, Title song and Padhamari – Paisa Vasool (Anup Rubens)

Dhooram, Telisiney na nuvvey, Emitemitemo, Madhurame, Mari mari and Gundelonaa – Arjun Reddy (Radhan)

Yelugula teraley, Neevalaney, Adedo maayalley and Enno enno bhavaley – Yuddham Sharanam (Vivek Sagar)

Miss Sunshine and Freedom – LIE (Mani Sharma)
Miss Sunshine has Anurag Kulkarni and Sinduri Vishal deliver an immensely listenable (barring cringe-worthy Teluglish) beach song! Mani is a master in such melodies and this one just works effortlessly. There’s a lot more spunk in Freedom with Mani showcasing fantastic flair with the orchestration even as Anurag Kulkarni and Ramya Behara handle the singing duties in style.

Etuvaipo – Oye ninney (Shekar Chandra)
Shekar’s melody is highly engaging and tuneful, with a haunting tinge of pathos, but his choice of Chaitra for the singing is the masterstroke.

Merise – Aanando Brahma (K)
The short soundtrack with just 2 songs and 4 background pieces was perhaps apt for a horror film like this one. S.V. Jananie’s Merise is easily the pick of the soundtrack with K’s trademark resonant and likeable melody.

Sukhibhava Annaru – Nene Raju Nene Mantri (Anup Rubens)
This soundtrack that released perhaps a bit too close to the film’s release was full of bombastic music pumping up Rana’s character, coming close on the heels of his Baahubali high. Shreya Ghoshal’s Sukhibhava is the one song that really stayed with me, with Anup choosing a lovely melody that almost sounded like Mani Sharma’s with neat violin strains and ably supported by Rohith and that ‘nuvve nuvve’ hook.

Malayalam

Pranavaakaram and Divayanam – E (Rahul Raj)

Aaradyam and Orayiram – Matchbox (Bijibal)

Veerangana and Melakey – Crossroad (Amrutha Suresh, Abhirami Suresh and Anitha Shaiq)

Tapp tapp, Kavalam painkili and Kilivathilin chare nee – Pullikkaran Staraa (M.Jayachandran)

Entammede jimikki kammal, Karayum kadalum, Neeyum and Mele arimulla – Velipadinte Pusthakam (Shaan Rahman)

Arikil ini njaan varaam – Adam Joan (Deepak Dev)
Arikil is a surprisingly effective guitar-led ballad featuring Prithviraj. He sings with a slight untrained edge and that actually helps keep the ballad’s melody intimate and real!

Enthavo and Nanavare – Njandukalude Nattil Oridavela (Justin Varghese)
Suraj Santhosh’s highly engaging singing of debutant Justin’s winsome melody is Enthavo. The melody is simple and easy on the ears, with Justin adding catchy layers with ukulele and banjo. Justin has a winner in Navare too, getting Tessa Chavara to handle the lazy drawl in the melody backed by the amplified sound of a clock’s ticking!

Kannada

Roopasi, Kannadi illada oorinali and Ninna snehadinda – Mugulu Nage (V.Harikrishna)

Marathi

Gaaz yeta go and Virlya kevha – Mala Kahich Problem Nahi (Hrishikesh Saurabh Jasraj)

Indipop

Enthavo – Job Kurian

Chintamani – Raman & Jirka
