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 […]

Murabba is poor man’s Amit Trivedi; Bombay Talkies song title, contemplative guitar-led tune… though Neuman Pinto’s singing seems flat. Maula is more Amit, but Nandini Srikar’s accomplished singing holds it together. Maths mein is an incredibly lively ode to hatred for maths, with Nitesh Tiwari’s fantastic folksy lyrics. Shreyas Jain’s beautiful lines on a daughter […]

Ankit Tiwari channels his inner Coldplay in Agar tu hota, singing it competently. Amaal Mallik’s Sab tera has a familiar melody that does check-box style Bollywood pleasantness; Shraddha’s vocals are pretty good! Meet Bros’ Girl I Need You has interesting vocals by Roach Killa, though the rest led by Arijit is less engaging. Meet Bros’ […]

Cute Kameena (Music review), Hindi – Krsna

Barring Payal Dev’s grating way of singing, Twinkle twinkle is a mighty fun track, with the real hero being Puneet Sharma’s lyrics (‘baaki saare launde water vapour lagte hain‘, ‘tere dil mein Tarantino ki Kill Bill rehti hai‘). Single chal riya hai gains immensely from Mohit Chauhan fantastic singing, and Rajshekhar’s lyrics, besides Krsna’s breezy […]

Maya thagni mixes pulsating world music’ish sounds for a largely folk tune, before going completely folk and then getting back again. Tetua, Ghanghor and Binu baadar too get their mix brilliantly right – very earthy folk tunes, and folk lyrics, set amidst rousing electronic sounds, with Sukhwinder, Keerthi Sagathia and Divya Kumar doing stellar jobs […]

Amaal Mallik’s recreation of Badshah’s 2014 dance-floor scorcher Chull continues to remain as insanely catchy as the original. Amaal also recycles his Sooraj dooba hai sound in Buddhu sa mann, to pretty impressive results. Benny Dayal and Nucleya’s frenetic electronic piece, Sony Project Resound’s Tamil Fever, adds Badshah to the mix and morphs into an […]

Meet Bros’ recreation of Jaz Dhami and Yo Yo Honey Singh’s 2012 High Heels includes a brand new hook, and is as catchy as the original. They do an equally good job with the adequately foot-tapping Pump It. Their last, Most Wanted Munda, is apt for end credits when people walk out. Mithoon’s Ji huzoori […]

Bombay Rockers’ 2003 chartbuster Rock Tha Party continues to sound fresh and catchy. Ankit Tiwari composes and wails through the rock-tinged Alfazon ki tarah where the music props the predictable tune. Television veterans and debutant film composers Inder and Sunny Bawra open with the impressive Rehnuma, a soulful melody with ambient arrangements, sung beautifully by […]
