I am India, the anthemic band song rides on the easy, repetitive hook and the racy ending, though Arijit sounding so much like Amit Trivedi is supremely discomforting. Amit does differentiate his voice in the song’s other version, a decidedly more street-smart version with a less anthemic sound. Hulchul, Junooni and Udanchoo are trademark Amit […]

Love you zindagi has an ebullient tune, but is too steeped in predictably—including Jasleen’s now-familiar woman-child voice—Amit Trivedi’ish sound (the club mix, featuring Alia, has more spunk). Ditto with Vishal Dadlani’s swagger in Let’s break up and Sunidhi politely requesting dil to Just go to hell; way… too… familiar! Amit mounts Tu hi hai and […]

Babu Haabi’s electrifying rap opens Chitta ve in style, even as Shahid Mallya and Bhanu Prtap take on the main tune beautifully amped by Amit’s pulsating electronic sounds. Vadiya is Chitta ve’s soul-sister – similar, manic energy amidst heavy electronica, admirably sung by Amit himself. Da da dasse gives Kanika Kapoor a tremendous tune transcend […]

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 […]

Shaandaar (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

In Gulaabo, Vishal Dadlani’s swagger rocks the song, but the horn section is no less impressive given how it holds the song. Anusha Mani comes out with guns blazing in ‘zara gandh pehlado’, as does Amit, on the keyboard, producing some zingy retro-pop. The abrupt title callout in Shaam Shaandaar is as pleasant as expecting […]

The title song starts off with Amit’s predictable scheme of things… till that second interlude and the subsequent, dramatic change in sound that puts the song in another gear! Its remix, however, is more annoyingly gimmicky. Sooiyan is an easy winner – a wonderfully pleasant melody that gains so much from the choice of singers […]

After 3 minutes of lively ‘circus music’ in Aam Hindustani, Shefali Alvares arrives in smouldering style, mouthing Amitabh Bhattacharya’s amusing Mumbaiya filmy verses, with the brass band offering solid backdrop. Shefali does a redux in Shut Up too, an essentially Amit Trivdedi’esque tune, but with a really smooth jazz makeover. Shefali’s 3rd song, Mohabbat buri […]

Update: A note by Atul, via Facebook, in response to my post, appended at the end. First, the video that kickstarted these thoughts in my head. This video is interesting for multiple reasons. Let me list them all! 1. It is hosted by Madhav Das, ex-founder of Magnasound, the label that introduced international music to […]

Queen (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

London thumakda is the soundtrack’s most straight-forward and accessible song – simple, catchy tune, sung with earthy flavor by Labh Janjua with the right dollop of enthusiasm. O gujariya too falls in that zone – easy listening techno ditty with the right punch and disapassionately manic singing by Shefali and Nikhil. Badra bahaar sees Amit […]

Lootera (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

Sawaar loon is unbearably sweet! Monali Thakur’s voice works big time, but the star here is Amit. He embellishes the tune with a lilting, old-world rhythm, gorgeously sweeping violins and a short, captivating vocal rhythm that he himself delivers just two times in the song! Amitabh Bhattacharya writes and sings Ankahee… and how! The pleasant […]
