Mom (Music review), Hindi – A R Rahman

O sona tere liye plays like a sedate—and soporific—lullaby, with Shashaa’s vocals clearly bettering Rahman’s trademark high pitch surges that seem labored. Kooke kawn‘s burst of faux-Punjabi energy seems rather generic in Sukhwinder’s over familiar vocals, while Raakh baaki, barring that psychedelic ending, remains uniformly bizarre. Freaking Life starts off tentatively, but steadily builds into […]

Shab (Music review), Hindi – Mithoon

Arijit’s sullen rendition in O saathi doesn’t help at all. Or, it’s just Mithoon’s maudlin tune and lyrics combination. Things don’t improve in Musafir; despite KK’s singing making a difference, Mithoon’s tune just refuses to make any headway from the current rut he seems to be stuck in. Afiya is strike three! The faux-sufi sound […]

Main hoon‘s 80s dance-pop vibe comes wonderfully alive in Siddharth Mahadevan’s compelling vocals and Tanishk Baagchi’s easy-on-the-ears tune. In Tanishk’s other song, Beat it bijuriya, co-composed with Vayu, Asees Kaur’s singing keeps it reasonably likeable. Javed-Mohsin’s Ding dang and Meet Bros’ Shake karaan are mediocre T-series style masala mixes. Vishal Mishra’s Pyar ho (and Redux) […]

Tubelight (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

A dash of Middle Eastern and a cleverly clinical variance to Balam pichkari makes Radio a great listen. Amit Mishra’s vocals and the hyper-enthusiastic backgrounds help. Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lovely lines bring Naach meri jaan alive in a big, happy chorus. In Tinka tinka, the brilliant chorus designed by Vivienne Pocha and the jaunty strings overpower […]

Jubin’s Ik vaari aa (credited to Pritam) sounds less like an electronic pop compared to JAM8-credited Arijit version, though both tunes are merely functional. Looks like producer Dinesh Vijan really likes Agent Vinod’s Raabta; after 4 versions in that film, a 5th—rather gimmicky—variant pops up here. Sadda move‘s generic Punja-bolly sound hardly works, but the […]

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 […]
