Lonely in insanely… insane; an atrocious hodge-podge of assorted genres, topped by Himesh’s ‘lonely lonely’ nose. Balma attempts aping Pancham, with middling results, thanks solely to Shreya. Long drive‘s hiphop Punju sound is appealing, courtesy Mika’s vocals, while, barring Himesh’s horrendous singing, Sari sari raat‘s melody is actually endearing! Hookah bar is terrible techno, even […]

Go Go Govinda is repetitive… and addictive! Mika and Shreya rule the song; Aman Trikha kills the reprise. Don’t worry plays on Dum Maro Dum’s memorable prelude and works as a danc’y tune! Tu hi tu, Himesh’s last song is in his awkward, earlier form; messy modern bhajan. Meet Bros Anjjan’s Mere nishaan, fabulously sung […]

Desi Boyz (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Make some noise for the Desi Boyz sees Pritam employ every trick in his book to create reasonably listenable and relentless Punglish noise. Subha hone na de, with its nursery rhymishly addictive hook, is pedestrian techno pop, while Jhak maar ke whips up a catchy mix that is a bit too reminiscent of Action Replayy’s […]

Jassi’s vocals make a huge difference in Laung da lashkara, a passably catchy track; but Rola pa gaya is severely weighed down by its stereotyped SEL sound. Hans Raj Hans’ Tumba tumba is delightfully earthly and tuneful, while Shafqat’s Kyun main jaagoon and Vishal Dadlani’s Aadat hai voh are both brilliantly scored, with fabulous lyrics! […]

Shirish Kunder’s stagey title song is interestingly gimmicky – with Sonu Nigam’s impressive Dasavatharam-style multi-voice singing topping the list, while Sheila ki jawani is a zingy, rabble-rousing scorcher that is mainly Sunidhi’s show! The only thing differentiating the energetic, well-sung techno qawali Wallah re wallah from Shankar Ehsaan Loy’s repertoire is Shankar’s missing vocals…thankfully! Badey […]

Action Replayy (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Only Pritam’s punchy arrangements stand out in Baki main bhool gayi, but Daler’s Zor ka jhatka works big time as an addictive item song! Chhan ke mohalla and Dhak dhak are merely regular dancy stuff, while O bekhabar is forced sweetness. The zingy Brit-rock’ish I am dog gone crazy is super fun, while Luk chup […]

Aila re seems like a raucous homage to Pancham’s Jahan teri yeh nazar hai and works well – Daler and Kalpana Patowary vocals are high on enthusiasm. The Marathi-pop Nana chi taang is conceived like a breezy 80s pop track and is solid fun; Kunal Ganjawala is a brilliant choice! KK and Sunidhi’s Sajde* is […]

Oh Girl you’re mine is an unfortunate opener to the soundtrack since it’s the least interesting song with a terribly lame pattern and predictable sounds. Then, the soundtrack delivers all the fun! Papa jag jayega makes brilliant use of Neeraj Sridhar’s vocals and that ultra-catchy hook, while the Dhanno-remix of Laawaris’ memorable classic adds neat […]

Rahat is getting typecast and it is clear from the maha-predictable forced-pleasantness of Rishte naate. Gale lag ja works marginally, only because of Javed Ali, but Paisa (by RDB), with its faux-coolness is pretty sad! The calypso genre explored by Pritam in Baamulaiza is mindless and scatterbrained, despite 3 vocalists, while the folk-fusion attempted in […]

Music review: Blue (Hindi – A R Rahman)

Blue sees Rahman offering his massiest sound in quite some time, but – as always – with enough cues that denote his going the extra step, even within the commercial limitations. Rehnuma is perhaps the best example – starting with a compelling bluesy base, it takes on a dazzling James Bond theme tone soon! Aaj […]
