Swanand Kirkire’s wonderful imagination powers Manjha, while Amit sings it with his usual panache. Additional plus is the absolutely gorgeous use of Esraj, a peculiar choice given its East Indian origins against the film’s Western base! Shubhaarambh features an inventive staccato variant of the Dandiya rhythm, while Shehnai and Bagpipes make love in the background […]

Kiklikalerdi is rhythmic and catchy, no doubt, but is also rather rudimentary. Motorwada gets it right with funky Punjabi layer on hip-hop. The title song is wonderfully earthy, but also so un-Amit’ish with its bare minimum, authentic sound; its instrumental version carries Amit’s signature, though! Harshdeep Kaur sounds stunning in Luni hasi and literally carries […]

Aiyyaa (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

Dreamum wakeupum’s Mehmood-style South Indian parody works wonders. Soumya Rao’s singing is impeccable, but with rib-tickling lyrics, Amitabh Bhattacharya is the real hero of the song. Wakda takes the Mehmood-feel – sound-wise – with that comic, faux-carnatic infusion, but Amit’s own spirited style underlines the song more than the parody. What To Do is better […]

Badla nazara, beyond the frivolous techno sound, carries enough nuances – like quirky wordplay and the squeaky title hook – to hold one’s attention. And Shilpa Rao can seldom go wrong anyway, while Amit’s own version is a good attempt too. Shilpa also carries Gustakh dil brilliantly, with its immersive slow rock sound with a […]

Chokra jawan amply demonstrates Vishal Dadlani and Sunidhi’s vocal chemistry – they are electric in this rustic coming-of-age celebration with inventive lyrics; its tune moves to a spectacular band-bajaa sound with an endearing free-flowing’ness! Jhalla wallah does seem to ape Bunty Aur Babli’s Kajra re – and there are many instrumental cues to it as […]

The title song is breezy and foot-tapping in a predictable way, while Gubbare ushers in strong Aisha recall for assorted reasons, with a horn-filled, dreamy feel. Ash King pulls off a neat desi-Elvis in Aunty Ji, even as the track references multiple genres in a likeable hodgepodge. Aahatein lays it thick with the filmy, Karan […]

Tai tai phish and it’s variant, Aa rela hai are high on catchy Maharashtrian folk, but are strictly passable. Mohit Chauhan’s dependable vocals and Nitesh Tiwari’s lyrics prop Chatte batte, but Ziddi piddi isn’t so lucky despite ambitious orchestration. It’s when Amit gets kids to express themselves that things sound better; Ek school banana hai […]

Wundoo yeredoo‘s multi-lingual mix is fabulously packaged in a pulsating techno wrapper. Rajiv Bhalla’s other song, Bhojhal se works big time with its affecting tune and KK’s engaging vocals. Karthik tries hard in Vivek Philip’s Aankhein, but it is largely staid. Then…we have Amit Trivedi! The musical nuances in Baangur and Saye saye are undeniably […]

Aali re has that uniquely Rahman’ish tinge that throws a listener off course – that excessively South Indian-sounding nuance, but with a plethora of singers including Tochi Raina, Biswajit Chakraborty, Shriram Iyer, Raja Hassan, Anushka Manchanda, Sonu Kakkar, Aditi Singh Sharma and Sonika Sharma (Phew!), this unconventional party track just rocks! More Rahman shades in […]

As one Milliblog loyalist (Yaju Arya) so thoughtfully noted in Aisha’s review, it looks like Amit Trivedi is the only composer who has got maximum 200 word review from me! Yaju also traced…or recalled a comment from me about how I felt, way back in February 2008, that Amit is a talent to look out […]
