Chu liya, Bhool saari baat and Dil ke rahi are the kind the songs that made Indipop tolerable in the 90s and 00s! Easy-on-the-ears, guitar’y pleasantness and well sung (Papon and Neha Rajpal are very good in the lilting Chu liya, in particular). Meheram mere could easily be mistaken for a Pritam song – Mohit […]

Qatl-e-aam, in its Unplugged version, has a phenomenally beautiful—very ghazal style—melody at its core and Sona Mohapatra delivers it incredibly well. The soft, lilting Punjabi rhythm and the persistent guitar backdrop makes the tune all the more better. In its other techno version, Ram pushes the envelope mindbogglingly ahead, with an unsettling and enormously interesting […]

Amaal Malik’s Kuch to hai is a simple tune, evoking classic waltz-style ballads, but in Armaan Malik’s vocals, it’s a good listen. Babli Haque’s sufi-tinged Jeena marna is largely predictable, but pleasant, in two versions, by Altamash Faridi, and the other by Palak Muchhal. Ankhiyaan, composed by Arjuna Harjai, is a pretty good melancholic Punjabi […]

Neeraj Shridhar offers a minor ray of hope for the stock dance tune in Nachange saari raat, while Meet Bros Anjjan dust their stock library once more for the title song. Meet Bros Anjjan’s last, Pagalon sa naach loses it completely, with its slapdash 90s style. Armaan Malik handles Jeet Ganguly’s 80s pop sensibility-laden Mujhko […]

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 […]
