Allah allah gets its Shivajinagar muslim lingo well and the tune is functionally catchy too. Anoop’s singing is competent, given the kind of song it is. Anoop sings the possibly coffee-themed (!) song, Latte latte that also includes calling the film’s leading lady Rasagulla, while the tune is simple and catchy. The title song is […]

Sapura kati starts off promisingly enough, with its Arabian-style rhythm, but devolves into something utterly familiar. Nanna pedde preethisu gains a lot from Samanvitha Sharma and the possible shades of Karaharapriya raaga, particularly in the anupallavi! The title song is as banal, generic and pointless as it can get. The soundtrack’s absolute best is Hogi […]

Perhaps owing to sentimental reasons, Arjun ropes in Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam to sing the same tune in Kanasalu and Gamanisu, respectively, like they sang Mungaru Male’s Araluthiru and Anisuthide, respectively (though Jayanth Kaikini wrote both versions in that film; he writes only the latter here, the former written by the film’s director Shashank)! […]

Dheerendra ropes in Joel Dubba for Mugilu matte matte, a spritely song that has owes its captivating backgrounds to Live Banned’s Fake You. Sowmya Subramanian joins Joel in the song’s edgier version, Teerada jotheyali. Dheerendra and his banned-mate Amrit Rao take turns composing Da Ra Bendre’s poem Yarigu Helunu Byada. Amrit’s version is minimal and […]

Kotigobba-2 (Music review), Kannada – D.Imman

The title song is almost a Yuvan Shankar Raja song, with its pulsating rhythm and Middle Eastern sounds evoking Saroja’s Kodana Kodi. Saaluthillave is Imman continuing his time-honored tradition of offering one fantastic melody to Shreya Ghoshal – it works yet again, as always! Jithinraj leads the catchy Hunna hunna that comes alive with some […]

Ajaneesh’s singing continues to be patchy, but the man sure knows how to cook up a immensely likeable pop melody in Muddu pori. Interestingly, Nee nadhiyaagi flows seamlessly after Muddu pori, with a similarly pleasant melodic feel. Ajaneesh’s singing awkwardness is in full show again in the pensive, engaging tune of Nanna kanasina, though Chinmayi […]

Bolo iska naam is energetic, but beyond Chandan Shetty full-throated singing, it’s commonplace. Ishta ishta is street-smart and catchy, with a brisk rhythm. Kannalliye savira is a crafty melody, with a whiff of the retro, while Karthik and Shreya ace Maayavi kanase, a sweeping melody with lovely strings; the Unplugged version is a lovely listen […]

Jhanak jhanak is a cleverly obvious and catchy take on Pankaj Mullick’s Piya milan ko jana and Puneeth handles it perfectly. Marula is a lovely duet, made better by Soham Chakraborthy and Supriya Lohith’s singing, and that absolutely gorgeous second interlude! Manikanth does an encore with an equally good second interlude in Summane, another lovely […]

Niladri creates a heavily stylized rock variant of the evergreen hymn in Aigiri Nandini. Hoo mele hani, featuring Junne Banerji and Savani Mudgal, is an immersive melody that showcases Niladri’s soundscape. Neenilla and Neenene offer the same contemplative and highly melodic tune in two voices, by Mohan and Jonita respectively. The ghazal’ish lightness of Aalangisu […]

Kai ethi thaddhandre, a funky song depicting Udipi’s dreaded gangster Arumuga’s life, comes alive in Ravishankar’s menacing vocals! Naa gudsi has a whiff of Vidyasagar—Villadhi Villain’s Bombai Maami—and the sweet duet has Anuradha Bhat in fantastic form. Ding dong has nothing to do with Tamil Jigarthanda’s Ding dong and is a Gana Bala style kuthu […]
