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 […]

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 […]

Ae watan works perfectly as a fervent prayer as much as it does as a patriotic song! The trio’s music, with beautifully layered chorus (Mani Mahadevan, Ravi Mishra, Binaya Mohanty, Arun Kamath and Arshad Mohammed), Gulzar’s verse, and a rousing sound, keeps the emotional quotient of the song on a constant high. The song’s second […]

Atif Aslam-led Sehmi hai dhadkan has a somber, deeply engaging tune that Vipin Patwa orchestrates really well, with a soaring hook that demands a lot from the singer and thankfully, he delivers pretty well. Vipin’s other song featuring Bulle Shah’s verse, Tain to uttey has another Pakistani singer, Javed Bashir, who is equally good, with […]

Ghoomar‘s steady percussion is as hypnotic as Shreya Ghoshal’s vocals, though the tune is functional. Sanjay’s tune works better in Ek dil, a maudlin melody that gains from Shivam Pathak’s singing and the orchestration. Sanjay’s effort in bringing the Central Asian sound in Khalibali works well within its catchy outlook, while a similar approach in […]

Swagpur ka Chaudhary borders on Psychedelic Funk and carries the same irreverent swag from Abhinay Deo’s Delhi Belly (which Akshat, Kaalakaandi’s director wrote). Abhishek Nailwal ups the ante with the zingy Electro Swing Jive With Me, while also giving fantastic company delivering the sedate hook to Vishal Dadlani lead in Aa bhi jaa. In comparison, […]

PadMan (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

When a man truly and completely adopts his woman’s electricity bill, you get Aaj se teri! Kausar Munir’s zingy lines lend this gently lilting ballad by Arijit significant heft even as Amit’s melody is reminiscent of Shankar Ehsaan Loy’s Bhimplas-raag number Bol na halke. Hu ba hu ushers us into Amit Trivedi’s comfort zone, though […]

Paintra is as combative as the sport the film portrays. Nucleya’s vibrant music fuses pan-Indian kuthu sounds effectively to let Divine deliver a grungy song. Mushkil hai apna is a triumph of Dr.Sunil Jog’s lyrics! His verse, with hilarious lines like, ‘Tum diwali ki bonus ho, main bhookon ki hartaal’ comes alive with phenomenal humor […]

Swag se swagat has a predictable tune and sound, but the foot-tapping fluff does have swag. Dil diyan gallan has a lovely lilt for the earthy Punjabi verse, on top of Atif’s dreamy vocals! The Unplugged version by Neha Bhasin is an equally good listen, with its sparse, very-Kashmiri sound. Zinda hai is decent background […]

Firangi (Music review), Hindi – Jatinder Shah

The title song works due to Sunidhi Chauhan’s charming vocals, Jatinder’s hammering of repetitive title hook and the steadily shifting sound, from earthy folk to a punchy EDM and eventually ballroom waltz! Jyoti Nooran and Daler Mehndi ace their wonderfully energetic folk songs, Sajna sohne jiha and Tu jit jawna, respectively; both are aptly foot-tapping! […]
