Thaman’s recreated title song lives on the borrowed steam of Vishal-Shekhar’s original 2006 version. The kuthu elements Thaman adds are trite, at best. Maine tujhko dekha has Amaal Mallik awkwardly proving that he is indeed Anu Malik’s nephew! He lifts, just like his uncle, Linear’s Sending All My Love again, in the guise of insipid […]

Shugal laga le and Banjara are heady melanges! Raghu mixes racy Celtic-sound with rhythmic desi folk; the former, with its Kerala folk mix works flawlessly! Darmiyaan is Raghu’s trademark – intimate and engaging rock ballad, with a melody reminiscent of Happy New Year‘s Preetiya hesare neenu, but with higher guitar quotient. Nikita’s fantastic singing props […]

Barring that energetic rhythm and Sonu Nigam’s singing, Goggle Song is painfully generic. Amaal Mallik’s second song Jatt Jaguar is no different – that breezy interlude featuring Apeksha Dandekar is a good diversion, though. Rishi Rich and Yash Anand’s title song is completely banal while trying something Pancham’y in the background. Gourov-Roshin’s Haathon mein is […]

Uff yeh Noor has an Amit Trivedi vibe! Undeniably bouncy, really well sung by Armaan Mallik and a vibrant set of instruments by Amaal, particularly the brass part. Gulabi 2.0 (and the Redux) are adequately pulsating enough to make R.D.Bur…n the dance-floor. Jise kehte pyaar hai bubbles with a lovely 90s pop lilt and a […]

Aashiq surrender hua is a dedicated Bollywoodisation of an infectious, foot-tapping South-Indian kuthu song! Amaal’s second, Roke na ruke, is the complete opposite! The song transcends conventional Dharma pathos templates riding on Arijit’s affecting singing. Akhil Sachdeva’s—Nasha Band’s vocalist making his Bollywood debut—Humsafar is a passable Pakistani-pop knockoff. Tanishk Bagchi closes the soundtrack with 2 […]

Beyond the jingoistic ode to the Indian Army, Rang laal has nothing going for it, given it is a loosely strung set of dialogs and occasional outbursts of so-called tune. Gourov-Roshin’s remix of Mr.India’s iconic Kaate nahi in O janiya has a distinct 90s Indipop feel and Neha Kakkar’s labored singing doesn’t make it any […]

Armaan’s vocals work perfectly with Amaal’s tune in the gorgeous Besabriyaan, reminiscent of Rahman’s Netru illaadha (Pudhiya Mugham). Jab tak too is Armaan and Amaal’s show, with a sweeping tune and orchestration combo that works effortlessly. The redux version adds a spunky new layer. Palak Muchhal is effortlessly good in Kaun tujhe, with lovely lines […]

Kho gaye hum kahan, with its serene guitar backdrop and ethereal vocals by Jasleen Royal (also its composer) and Prateek Kuhad, is an incredibly calming listen. Jasleen’s other track, Nachde ne saare is the opposite – conventional Bollywoodized-Punjabi catchiness. Dariya has Arko going solo with competent faux-Punjabi melancholy. Sau asmaan is Amaal Mallik answering, ‘Sooraj […]

Amaal Malik’s Kuch to hai is a simple tune, evoking classic waltz-style ballads, but in Armaan Malik’s vocals, it’s a good listen. Babli Haque’s sufi-tinged Jeena marna is largely predictable, but pleasant, in two versions, by Altamash Faridi, and the other by Palak Muchhal. Ankhiyaan, composed by Arjuna Harjai, is a pretty good melancholic Punjabi […]

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’ […]
