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 […]

Main woh chaand is droningly Himesh, and Darshan Raval does well, given the limited material. Much like Bekhudi, that fares better, as a tune, though Aditi’s nakhras seem overdone. Wafa ne bewafai works its repetitive hook’s charm well, as Arijit leads it in style. Himesh sings Teri yaad with all his nose and the Aashiq […]

Despite the Justin Bieber plagiarism, Music Is My Art is catchy, thanks to Ashu’s electronic sound and Rachel Varghese’s captivating vocals. Ashu’s electronic coating works wonders for Ajj sanu and Dhruvtara‘s Punjabi soul too. Where it stretches its luck is in Kori pukaar, with a droning sound, and a series of 5 Punjabi tracks, and […]

Suresh Peters resurfaces again! His Hindi composing debut in Do You Wanna Dance With Me mixes shades of Michael Jackson’s Beat It with Punjabi music. Pretty good mix, delivered well by Sunidhi, and Natalie Di Luccio, and Harshdeep Kaur in two versions. A similar attempt by Salman Ahmad in Yaaro sounds kitschy, while his other […]
