Jai Maa is a highly entertaining Mata-Ki-Chowki Kaala chashma remix by Jaidev Kumar! Rishi Rich’s Jaanu remix (Pancham’s Shaan number) is the polar opposite – horrendous! Tera hoke rahoon‘s melodic turn is so-very-Pritam and breezy, given it comes his JAM8’s Kaushik-Akash-Guddu, with Arijit holding fort. Yash Narvekar’s Teri yaadon mein too, despite the familiar sound, […]

With faint echoes of Pudhiya Mugham’s Netru illadha, Hind mere jind eventually plays out like a mish-mash of a lot of likeable and familiar sounds and phrases that do not converge to hit the bullseye. In Sachin, Sachin, Rahman cleverly integrates the now-iconic stadium chant set to a punchy, and often overdone and manipulative rhythm, […]

Irshad Kamil’s poignant lines get the perfect vehicle in Harshdeep Kaur’s evocative vocals in Sune saaye. Anupam’s sitar-tinged rock sound is reminiscent of M.M.Kreem’s Zakhm. Rekha Bhardwaj aces the gentle Saat rangon se effortlessly, with a beautifully lilting percussion that is missing in the acoustic version, along with middling singing by Anupam himself. Kehne ko, […]

Tanishk Bagchi’s Baarish is a mighty pleasant melody and the choice of instruments make a huge difference. Farhan Saeed’s Thodi der, with its earthy sound, makes an impact, but its lyrical twin, Stay A Little Longer falters with its muddled sound. Rahul Mishra’s quasi-power-sufi Tu hi is passable, while Phir bhi, its reprise, and the […]

Guru Randhawa and Rajat Nagpal get composing credit for Suit, an already super-hit 2016 Punjabi track composed by Intense (who is credited for ‘original music’, though it’s the same!) and sung by Guru Randhawa and Arjun! Catchy, competent, albeit generic song. Sukhbir produces yet another remix of Oh ho ho ho, credited to Abhijit Vaghani […]

In Maana ke hum yaar nahin, Parineeti Chopra sounds earnest enough to carry the lovely ghazal’ish melody. But earnestness alone doesn’t seem enough, as is quite evident from multiple points in the song. That there is also a duet version of the same song featuring the inimitable Sonu Nigam (along with Parineeti) only accentuates the […]

Asha Bhonsle adds gravitas to the ghazal’ish Prem mein tohre, but age-related strains are evident in her vocals. But compared to Kavita Seth’s oddly detached rendition, Asha’s version seems more nuanced and soulful. Anu Malik handles the music well, particularly the strings in the background. Rahat and Sonu go through the motions in Aazaadiyan, with […]

Of the 2 songs by Revant & Siddharth, the title song barely survives—thanks to Sukhwinder Singh—but Mano ya na mano is a complete washout. Arko’s Rishta drones on between his own voice and Arijit offering minor gravitas to the strained predictability of the tune. It’s Vipin Patwa who offers the impoverished soundtrack some succor. KK […]

Uff yeh Noor has an Amit Trivedi vibe! Undeniably bouncy, really well sung by Armaan Mallik and a vibrant set of instruments by Amaal, particularly the brass part. Gulabi 2.0 (and the Redux) are adequately pulsating enough to make R.D.Bur…n the dance-floor. Jise kehte pyaar hai bubbles with a lovely 90s pop lilt and a […]

Tukda tukda caresses like a gentle breeze, thanks to Asees Kaur’s thoroughly likeable vocals and Krsna’s gorgeous melody. Seene mein lagi and Teri razamandi are both Krsna channeling his usual qawali templates – rather generic, though the latter fares a shade better. Muhabbat ko misuse‘s quirky band-style sound is interesting, but it’s let down by […]
