TE3N (Music review), Hindi – Clinton Cerejo

Haq hai, with its somber and deeply rich backgrounds plays out like a wonderfully desi’fied Praying For Time (George Michael – Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1, 1990). Clinton handles the vocals perfectly, while he’s superbly supported by the chorus. Rootha is a brilliant concoction! What is essentially a rousing pop tune gets several shades better thanks […]

Baby ko bass pasand hai starts off folk’ishly and makes good on the hook’s insanely catchy and dance-worthy techno promise! Mika’s 440 Volt is a templatized 90s-style masala track no doubt, but is infused with a lot of punchy sounds and an addictive foot-tapping rhythm. Nooran Sisters close the trio of rhythmic tracks with Tuk […]

Pyar ki, by Toshi and Sharib Sabri has one goal – make a foot-tapping song; it delivers amply, with a catchy hook and easy-singalong—bordering on the dumb—lines to go with it. Sohail Sen’s Taang uthake has very similar intentions, but instead of techno, this one goes full-on desi, with a thumping masala rhythm. Mika and […]

Dhanak (Music review), Hindi – Tapas Relia

Shivam Pathak is mighty impressive with his vocals in Jeene se bhi, an inspirational number with spritely music. Chal chalein has a nice enough melody but the music overpowers Papon, Vibha and Shivamm’s singing. The title song is simple and sweet, in a very-Bengali way, and Monali’s rendition is fantastic. Mehandi is a mighty interesting […]

Tu hai toh main hoon‘s whispery melody comes out in all its glory through Anushka Manchanda’s accomplished vocals, with Nikhil D’Souza barely whispering above her! Mikey handles Got My Eyes On You‘s catchy Swing tune with a unique gruff, with the genre’s sound, led by the horns, coming out pretty well. Waiting is trademark Mikey […]

Babu Haabi’s electrifying rap opens Chitta ve in style, even as Shahid Mallya and Bhanu Prtap take on the main tune beautifully amped by Amit’s pulsating electronic sounds. Vadiya is Chitta ve’s soul-sister – similar, manic energy amidst heavy electronica, admirably sung by Amit himself. Da da dasse gives Kanika Kapoor a tremendous tune transcend […]

Neki ki raah is resonant and fits the sermon-like lyrics; Arijit Singhs (!) it in his characteristic style. Keh bhi de is lovely – a serene and beautifully orchestrated duet that gains tremendously from two good singers – Benny Dayal & Palak Muchhal. Palak tries an encore in Kuch der, but the pensive tune painfully […]

Arijit lifts Amaal’s Salamat and Shashi-Shivam’s very tuneful lullaby Nindiya significantly, given how simple the tunes are. Sonu is dependably good in the ghazal-like melancholy of Jeet Ganguli’s Dard. Tanishk Bagchi’s Allah Hu Allah is a resonant qawali but their Rabba is heavily templatized background music. Of Shail-Pritesh’s five songs, Tung lak is heady Punjabi […]

Sonu Nigam and Prakriti Kakkar are surprisingly restrained in Tu hi na jaane; the tune is also too familiar. Jeetne ke liye has KK trying to rouse emotions in a clearly templatized setting. But Amaal wins with Bol do na zara, a Gangster-Tu hi mera style, Emraan-brand melody handled brilliantly by Armaan Malik. Pritam’s lone […]

Bhaang ragad ke‘s electronic folk brings alive the tune’s almost-bhajan like sound in Vikas Kumar’s perfectly accented vocals. Vipin’s other, Kharch karod has a punchy electronic sound, but less interesting tune; better in the slower version. Shiraz Uppal’s Mera mann is harmonious, but sounds too common. Mathias Duplessy and Mukhtiyar Ali join again in Aye […]
