Milliblog Weeklies – NOV12.2017

Given the proliferation of singles over full soundtracks and considering the fact that I make playlists for myself every week consisting of new music (both singles and songs part of fully released soundtracks), I have decided to share those playlists as well without being constrained by the full soundtrack release or reviewing that first. I […]

Marali marali offers Arjun’s usual arsenal of fusing desi elements like thavil and violins to a funky college song with a catchy ‘College kumara’ chorus. Naavu last bench too extends the sound, riffing off the iconic ‘We will rock you’ and adding a layer of Kerala folk percussion for added effect. Hasi bisi is lovely! […]

Vishal Mishra’s Khatam kahani has the same verve of a Krsna song; this too written by Krsna’s frequent collaborator, lyricist Raj Shekhar. Nooran sisters’ exuberant singing pitches the song into a racy, wacky qawali zone. Their other song, Jaane de, featuring Atif Aslam, is the complete opposite – a serene melody befitting Atif’s dreamy voice. […]

Kukkotti kunaatti moves seamlessly from the child’s perspective—Praniti’s delightfully innocent “Aala marathula yeraadhey, maangaya parikkaadhey; maanga marathula yeraadhey, thengaaya parikkaadhey“—to the duo singing about the child herself. It’s a package that works wonderfully with imaginative vocal harmonies and sparkling Ukelele, violin, viola and cello. Oothakkaadu Venkata Subbaiyer and Ray Charles go to a bar and […]

Guru Randhawa spruces up his Tu meri rani (2016) into Ban ja rani, with help from the former’s mixer Rajat Nagpal; a significantly better version. Tanishk uses Kavita’s original vocals in Hawa Hawai 2.0 and hits another remix jackpot. His original, Manva likes to fly, is an ebullient tune articulated with infectious enthusiasm by Shalmali. […]

Ranjith holds Sevatha pulla in great stead, with a reggae-ish sway and a particularly neat anupallavi. Oru veettil and O sathiye are good old Ghibran, with multi-layered sound, splendid chorus and excellent singing by Shashaa Tirupati and Inno Genga, and Armaan Malik, respectively. Laali laali extends that sound, with a catchy background that carries enjoyable […]

2.0 (Music review), Tamil – A.R.Rahman

There’s more sound-led glitz in Endhira logathu sundariye than a cohesive tune. Sid and Shashaa’s voices are digitally mauled, perhaps owing to the ‘robot’ theme, a musical cue that plagued Endhiran‘s soundtrack too. Madhan Karky’s enjoyably clever lyrics doff the hat to ‘computerized Rajini’ (KaNini Rajini nee!) and a 3-word phrase that fits his father’s […]
