Befikre (Music review), Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar

Nashe si chadh gayi, barring the annoying chipmunks’ish intrusions, is a lovely listen, with a hypnotic, Middle-Eastern tune and wonderfully voiced by Arijit. More Middle Eastern sound in the title song, but it is also significantly more predictable. Je T’aime is exotic European sound and that charm alone carries it easily, while You and Me‘s […]

Mehram is almost entirely powered by Arijit Singh’s impactful singing. Clinton’s music is aptly restrained, letting the smooth melody reign with Arijit leading it, and it taking on an anthemic, repetitive ring eventually. Lamhon ke rasgulle‘s whimsical lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya work perfectly on top of the easily catchy, synth-driven 80s one-hit wonder style pop […]

Love you zindagi has an ebullient tune, but is too steeped in predictably—including Jasleen’s now-familiar woman-child voice—Amit Trivedi’ish sound (the club mix, featuring Alia, has more spunk). Ditto with Vishal Dadlani’s swagger in Let’s break up and Sunidhi politely requesting dil to Just go to hell; way… too… familiar! Amit mounts Tu hi hai and […]

Beyond the jingoistic ode to the Indian Army, Rang laal has nothing going for it, given it is a loosely strung set of dialogs and occasional outbursts of so-called tune. Gourov-Roshin’s remix of Mr.India’s iconic Kaate nahi in O janiya has a distinct 90s Indipop feel and Neha Kakkar’s labored singing doesn’t make it any […]

The title song is wonderfully sweeping, with Pritam’s spellbinding orchestration accompanying Arijit’s fantastic vocals. Bulleya‘s sound is instantly ebullient, but not very different from our neighboring country’s bands. Channa mereya is on similar lines, a sweet, almost-sappy melody, led by Arijit’s brilliant vocals. Ash King is effortless in the gospel-styled ballad Alizeh, backed by excellent […]

Tum Bin 2 (Music review), Hindi – Ankit Tiwari

Teri fariyaad is worth just for Jagjit Singh’s voice; strips the corny backgrounds of the original, well handled by Rekha Bhardwaj. Ishq mubarak is T-series’ roster-composers stuff from 2001. Dekh lena fares mildly better, but Tulsi Kumar starts singing. The title song is more melodic (than the earlier film’s) without being mushy. Vishal and Neeti […]

Bolo har har har is almost medley’ish, trying to do something for everyone – Badshah’s rap stands out amidst the busy-everything. Darkhaast is vintage Mithoon – dulcet melody, expertly mounted with a sound that alternates between serene, minimal sounds and an energetic Coldplay’ish backdrop. Mithoon’s last song, Tere naal ishqa, is the soundtrack’s most jaded […]

Parched (Music review), Hindi – Hitesh Sonik

Mai ri mai is an enchanting combination of Swanand Kirkire’s lovely lines and immersive melody by Hitesh. Kalpana Patowary rules the item’ish Bhookamp, and Hitesh adds distinctive funk to drown the bawdiness! Neeti Mohan’s Kachhuva has better lilt, with a riot of funky sounds. Of the two traditional songs curated by Rahul Vohra and produced […]

Rock On 2 (Music review), Hindi – Shankar Ehsaan Loy

You know what I mean is a perfect sequel to Socha hai and Pichle saat dinon mein. Farhan’s gruffy vocals is almost manageable and those energetic guitars rule. In a more indulgent melody like Manzar naya, Farhan’s voice seems woefully inadequate, though the trio’s tune sails through effortlessly. Jaago, a soul-sister to Rock On’s title […]

The title song is a sprawling effort! Too sprawling, given the medley’ish ways it splinters into. But it is also mighty impressive, pulling in many voices led by Daler Mehndi, a phenomenal vocal chorus and a grand, thumping sound. Gulzar’s sparkling imagination headlines Teen gawah, propped by Siddharth Mahadevan’s fresh-sounding voice, set to a wonderfully […]
