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. […]

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. […]

Arko’s Jogi gets 3 versions, and the pleasant song’s melodic soul comes out best with Shafqat’s version! The other 3-version song, Rashid Khan’s engaging Tu banja gali Benaras ki has all 3 variants in good stead – Asit Tripathy, Asees Kaur and Shafqat. JAM8’s Main hoon saath tere is a passable poor-man’s Dharma ballad. Raees […]

Girishh does something interesting in Kaarigai kanne – what is a whispery and gorgeous melody in Tamil and Telugu, it transforms into a mighty likeable Mohit Suri-style melody in the Hindi version, O mere sanam! The former variants include 2 singers, with the female singers (Shaktishree and Chinmayi) offering tantalizing spoken lyrics, while the Hindi […]

Thaman’s recreated title song lives on the borrowed steam of Vishal-Shekhar’s original 2006 version. The kuthu elements Thaman adds are trite, at best. Maine tujhko dekha has Amaal Mallik awkwardly proving that he is indeed Anu Malik’s nephew! He lifts, just like his uncle, Linear’s Sending All My Love again, in the guise of insipid […]

Meghna Mishra’s debut, Main kaun hoon, has the earnestness of a newcomer, thanks to poignant lyrics by Kausar Munir. Kausar’s lyrics work even better in Meri pyaari Ammi, with its lived-in feel, though Nachdi phira is trademark-Amit rock that’s relatively less engaging. The combo’s best is Sapne re, with an old-world charm accentuated by Sanket […]

Thodi si jagah has fantastic Carnatic-style strings by Finix Ramdas amidst the lively rock sound! Arijit is in his effortless, Amit Trivedi-mode. Arijit’s other song, Dhundlo tum is a soaring, soulful melody that expects a lot from the singer, and he, expectedly, delivers! Yeh mera man captures the Calypso’ish joie de vivre in Ash King’s […]

The generic Middle Eastern sounds and familiar rhythm are downers but Nickk’s tune in Fashion queen is catchy, and works pretty well in Raahi’s vocals. Jeet Gannguli’s Thoda aur is left to Arjit Singh and Palak Muchhal to salvage given the melody’s extremely generic sound – it does have a throwaway pleasantness. The desi hiphop […]

Shugal laga le and Banjara are heady melanges! Raghu mixes racy Celtic-sound with rhythmic desi folk; the former, with its Kerala folk mix works flawlessly! Darmiyaan is Raghu’s trademark – intimate and engaging rock ballad, with a melody reminiscent of Happy New Year‘s Preetiya hesare neenu, but with higher guitar quotient. Nikita’s fantastic singing props […]

Sandeep Shirodkar does a pretty good job in improvising the catchy sadak-chaap’ness of Anu Malik’s original in Chalti hai kya featuring Dev Negi and Neha Kakkar. In Oonchi hai building 2.0, Sandeep gets Anu himself to sing it again, in a confidently spruced up package, and Anu gains a new accent for words like ‘razawmand’. […]
