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 […]

Armaan’s vocals work perfectly with Amaal’s tune in the gorgeous Besabriyaan, reminiscent of Rahman’s Netru illaadha (Pudhiya Mugham). Jab tak too is Armaan and Amaal’s show, with a sweeping tune and orchestration combo that works effortlessly. The redux version adds a spunky new layer. Palak Muchhal is effortlessly good in Kaun tujhe, with lovely lines […]

Jeenay de mujhe, by Pakistani rocker Faiza Mujahid, literally screams women’s emancipation, in the Bryan Adams rock mode. The second Pakistani connection of the soundtrack is Qurat Ul Ain Balouch (or, QB) singing Shantanu Moitra’s poignant tune in Kaari kaari. The song’s rock turn mid-way and the veena-like interlude seem like questionable choices, however. Anupam […]

Lo maan liya has all the earnestness of a nursery rhyme. Raaz aankhein teri is no different – a mildly Latino-tinged, cloyingly predictable melody. It’s other version Hummein tummein is even more maudlin. The Sound of Raaz is based on the same tune too, frustratingly. Things get slightly better with the celtic whiff in Yaad […]

Banjo (Music review), Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar

Bappa, in Vishal’s energetic vocals, works perfectly as a masala-pop bhajan. Om Ganapataye namaha is more pop than bhajan, but the stadium’ish grandness of the sound is impressive. The pulsating festive sound carries in Rada too that Vishal, with his full-throated singing, holds confidently. Pee paa ke loses some steam relying on a catchy hook […]

Akira (Music review), Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar

In Rajj rajj ke, while Sonakshi struggles hard, Nahid Afrin—the Indian Idol finalist from Assam—handles the angsty tune effortlessly in the other version. The remix evens out the angst to make an odd dance track. Purza is vintage Vishal-Shekhar! Breezy tune, brilliantly sung by Arijit, with a dash of Latino, and a surprising smattering of […]

The title song is a straight-to-the-point fun track that hammers Pag, Peg, Swag set amidst glitzy Punjabi coolth, with a cute outing by Tanishkaa. Ditto with Beat pe booty‘s catchy Punju-Hiphop. Sachin-Jigar aim high in Toota jo kabhi tara‘s sweeping melody and it works pretty well, in Atif Aslam and Sumedha Karmahe’s confident vocals. Atif […]
