Purwaiyaa builds itself into a delightful track, with the minute-long serene intro segueing beautifully into the joyous ourburst. Shivam’s age shows in his singing, but Shraddha’s voice is mature beyond her years. That manifests even better in her first solo, Shukriya, with Gulraj’s music remaining consistently engaging. The song’s reprise is even better, with a […]

Dance Basanti is hardly representative of Sachin Jigar’s current form – a catchy, but thoroughly derivative song that could have easily been scored any Punjabi composer with random Z or J in his name. Aslam Keyi composed Ungli pe is no different! Salim Sulaiman’s Auliya is serene and makes one long for the duo’s proper […]

Ganpati Bappa Morya’s orchestration is tuned to grand splendor with Prof. Dr Ganesh Chandanshive and Shankar Mahadevan getting excellent support from the chorus. In comparison, the Lalbaugchaa Raajaa aarti is conventionally pious. Bolo na bolo‘s new version pits Shivam Mahadevan’s immaculate singing with Loy Mendonsa’s fangled, intermittent vocals, while Hariharan’s Vandan ho is a lot […]

Tutiya Dil (Music review), Hindi – Gulraj Singh

Aag lage and Tutiya dil are super-efficient takes on the best of Salim-Sulaiman’s Punjabi-infused catchiness, with hilarious lyrics to boot and wonderful vocals by Alamgir in the former, and Ram Sampath and Prakriti Kakkar in the latter; there’s also a distinct Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy version 2.0 sound in the latter, the title song, particularly in the beautifully […]

Gulraj Singh sounds distinctly like Rahman in the short, ambient opener, Ganesh Mantra. Ehsaan brings his bluesy touch to cook a mighty unlikely, but highly enjoyable Ganaraj Adhiraj; that ‘Jai jai Ganapati’ chorus is a killer! Shankar Mahadevan’s son, Siddharth debuts in Tu hi hai, an addictive tune with wonderful interludes (featuring Hamsika Iyer in […]

Milliblog Weeklies – NOV18.2018

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 48: On Apple Music | On Saavn | On YouTube 22 songs this week. No single streaming platform scales up to provide for all of them 🙁 YouTube is the best bet for you this week since it has 16 songs. I’m terribly disappointed […]

Prem & Hardeep’s O meri mehbooba remix is a terrible khichdi. Peh gaya khalara fits in Jasleen’s 2nd template (the 1st being the child-woman melody) – generic, highly rhythmic Punjabi folk. Sumeet Bellary scores well with Tu mera bhai and Bura na mano; adequately funky, with eclectic musical mix. Shaarib & Toshi’s soulful Punjabi ballad […]

The last time I did this list, it was in 2014 (and in 2008, before that). It’s time there’s another list like this. Except Hindi film music, where multi-composer albums are almost the norm these days, the other 4 major film producing languages that I track consistently (Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada) are, thankfully, sticking […]

This list is for soundtracks released between December 15, 2014 to December 15, 2015. And remember, it is perfectly justifiable to have reactions like, ‘How can […]
