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 […]

Neerja (Music review), Hindi – Vishal Khurana

Starting with Gayatri mantra set to Queen’s We Will Rock You set-up, Aankhein milayenge builds well into an anthemic sound. Jeete hain chal too opens with a mantra – Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra, but in a more serene way, set to a thrumming and rousing melody. Sunidhi is fantastic in Aisa kyun maa, a pensive and […]

Fitoor (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

Yeh fitoor mera is very Amit; a dual-mukhda structure that hammers the simple, evocative tune with a gradual build-up and a rousing ending, all wonderfully handled by Arijit. Pashmina ups the ante further with its oh-so-gentle melody, evoking Rahman’s Kaatre en vaasal (Rhythm) in the orchestration, and Amit handling the vocals impeccably. Zeb Bangash’s voice […]
