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! […]

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 […]

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 […]
