Milliblog Weeklies – MAY27.2018

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 25: On Apple Music | On Saavn | On YouTube 23 songs this week. No playlist has all the songs 🙁 YouTube has almost all of them barring one – Rasthe Pakka Boddi Haida from the Kannada film, Kannadakkagi Ondannu Otti. Apple Music is […]

Episode 5 of Milliblog Monthlies, featuring the music of Mithoon. I found the music (multi-composer) of Bas Ek Pal promising, in my review (August 2006). I had liked Mithoon’s 2 songs in the film, and had even built my review of Anwar (November 2006) on that foundation. I loved the 2 songs by Mithoon in […]

In Yella Halli Love Story, Vijay Prakash, the adept singer he already is, adds an affecting edge in his voice, while also playing around with falsettos and some fantastic free-form vocalizing in the interlude! Arjun’s music is an enjoyable mix of soul, searing electric guitars, a dollop of jazz and most interestingly, tabla! It all […]

Milliblog Weeklies – MAY13.2018

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 23: On Apple Music | On Saavn | On YouTube A packed week – 20 songs in the playlist! Apple Music has it all. Saavn is missing just one – Old Is Gold’s Oru Poovithal, while YouTube is missing quite a bit. A note […]

Seema Weightu extends Veera Thurandhara, with a similar Ilayarajaesque swag, but adding some Mumbaiya mix too, along with Dopeadelicz and Arunraja Kamaraj’s rap. Katravai Patravai is the soul-twin of Neruppu Da, Keba’s electric guitar replacing Jhanu Chantar’s. Instead of Neruppa Da’s searing appeal, when Yogi B roars, “Unnayum maNNayum vendru vaa Thee (Thee)raatha or thevaiyai […]

Oh Priya‘s minimal pallavi is interesting, consisting of ‘Oh Priya Na Priya’ and ‘Mehbooba’; the rest of the song too has a slow, somber appeal. Naa pranam‘s sweeping melody is Varijashree’s show; she’s fantastic with her involved vocals. Ambika Jois beautifully handles the catchy Saiyaan, with fantastic guitar work in the anupallavi and smoothly blends […]

Barring Sunidhi’s spirited singing, the rest of Pappi le loon is plain zany, while Bhangra da sajda—and White Noise’s Laaj sharam—is predictably spirited Punjabi wedding dance material. But Sashwat Sachdev drops the bass to great effect in Bass gira de raja, and Aa jao naa, where lyricist Raj Shekhar’s pensive deliberations get a beautifully somber […]

Hey Hey ILU‘s plethora of smartphone notification sounds is as annoying as Right Right – both outdated tunes. In Nijama manasa, Sharreth alternates M.M.Manasi’s tantalizingly slow parts with Yazin Nizar’s outburst; the mix works beautifully, like Sharreth’s own Premika, a searing pathos amidst the aggressive chorus. The soundtrack’s best are Chiniki chiniki, an unusual melody […]
