Milliblog Weeklies – JAN28.2018

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 9: Playlist on Saavn. (Only on Saavn this week, given the absence of quite a few songs on Apple Music. Some songs are missing on Saavn too, so have added them as YouTube embeds.) A note on each song in the playlist. — Kareja […]

Hawa vich‘s buoyant tune gets a mighty bump from Diljit’s, and in particular Sunidhi Chauhan’s, fantastic vocals, and the lively folk rhythm. Diljit rocks the joyous melody in Kalliyan kulliyan, though a minor musical phrase at 0:39 (commercial loop?) is a faster version of Ajaneesh Loknath’s Kalkond Bitte (Sundaranga Jaana) prelude! Ho gaya talli is […]

Dawn Cordo’s ethereal vocals go perfectly with the main tune of Satrangi that is equally dreamy orchestration to boot, besides Arijit Singh’s involved singing. The jaunty garba rhythm is no doubt catchy—ending in a frenzy, at that—but Gori Radha ne kado kaan has a thoroughly engaging melody as well. Zindabad re (and Amdavad re), despite […]

Hitman – November 21, 2015

Originally published in The Hindu. Paatta podunga ji – Oru Naal Koothu (Tamil – Justin Prabhakaran) As if Justin Prabhakaran’s Ilayaraja invocation isn’t enough—when the violins play in the first interlude of Enakkaaga porandhaaye, from his debut, Pannayaarum Padminiyum, one can almost picture Rajinikanth in white and white, with his hands in the pocket walking […]

Bey yaar sapna nava has a decent pop sound that doesn’t add anything beyond managing to sound generically good. But Sachin sings the song’s other, more pensive version, Bey yaar tara vina and this one has a lot more heart! Kirti Sagathia handles Rakkhad in his quintessential style, with generous Gujarati touch too, while the […]

The title song, by Kunal Ganjawala and Sumitra Iyer, could well be a Bollywood-Pritam tune – highly engaging! It’s remix and sad versions work too, thanks to Navraj Hans’s singing. Amrinder Gill’s rules over Rubaru, a delightful melody, fabulously orchestrated by Jaidev. Aaja bhangra and Laltain Nachdi are bhangra fare that deliver an enthusiastic high, […]

NW1W. When it is not embarrassing, it is outdated. And vice versa. Keywords: Ousephachan, K.Niran, Rudolfsan, Nirmalya, Dam999, Damn 999

Kandireega (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Gentleman‘s catchy chorus hook is what makes it tick; enjoyably massy even as the overall tune around it fumbles aimlessly. Champakamala is typical Thaman material! Beautifully orchestrated simple, foot tapping tune…generous sprinkling of mindless English phrases and super singing by Karthik and Suchitra – winning combo! Nenkudithey has a plethora of singers (six!) and is […]

Prashant Pillai’s Bali is trippy, but perhaps goes overboard. He gets his groove in Nasha and O Yaara – eminently tuneful, both! It’s also easy to identify Amit Trivedi in his adequately-grungy Fareeda. Amar Mohile’s RGV-influenced mediocrity thankfully ends with Josh, while Mikey McCleary’s reggae-recreation of Hawa hawai is Suman Shridhar’s show! Chandan Shive’s superb […]
