Prasoon’s lyrics faintly touch SEL’s Achha lagta hai, from Kuch Naa Kaho, in Achha lagta hai(!), but changes tone into a playful, colloquial, immensely addictive banter. What works significantly in favor of Mauka is the ‘Other Mahadevan’ factor; the ‘chanace’ given to Raman Mahadevan adds wonderfully fresh appeal to this high-energy track. Pt. Channulal Mishra […]

Haal-e-dil is gorgeously resonant! The track is treated appropriately by the composers; minimal music and even that tabla (or, is it mridangam? Valid query from @Sharathpadaru) entering later in the track adds great value! The title song is a nice, catchy acapella gimmick, including vocalizing the electric guitar to decent results! In comparison, the dub […]

Music review: Teen Patti (Hindi – Salim Sulaiman)

Bachchan’s probability mumbo-jumbo sounds silly in an otherwise-enjoyable, Bond’ish Life is a game; fantastic vocals by Sonia Saigal and Anushka! Summertime (George Gershwin’s original used as-is) has corny lyrics, but the zingy pop works instantly, thanks to Joe Alvares’ vocals. The title song is likeable techno-pop with a psychedelic soundscape. Sunidhi is scintillating in the […]

Music review: Rann (Hindi – Assorted composers)

Jayesh Gandhi’s Remote ko baahar is plain ridiculous. Sanjeev Kohli’s thematic Rann hai is best suited as background material, while the two obviously catchy tracks – Amar Mohile’s Mera Bharat Mahaan and Imran-Vikram’s Gali gali mein – are utterly predictable. The rest – Besharam, Kaanch ke jaise and Sikkon ki bhook – are completely pointless. […]

Music review: Paa (Hindi – Ilayaraja)

Mudhi mudhi (and Udhi udhi) is one of the trendiest songs of the year; zingy, superbly sung by Shilpa Rao and exceptionally orchestrated! Gumm summ, after its various versions – one in Hindi itself (Aur ek prem kahani’s Sunday ko), still sounds as lilting as the original, Olangal’s Thumbi vaa. Hichki is muddled, at best, […]

Music review: Aladin (Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar)

Tak dhina dhin is Pancham all the way, with a punchy new sound to the boot, much like Bachke O Bachke, which has select portions of its tune in the Pancham genre, but the overpowering orchestration, well…overpowers the song. Genie rap is a considerably better AB-rap than what his bhakt-for-life, Aadesh, composes – that is […]

Re-ranting about Aadesh Shrivastava

<!–adsense–> I’m outraged at Aadesh Shrivastava brainlessly expressing his outrage at Bachchan’s portrayal in Slumdog Millionaire. So, here’s a quote-to-quote response, besides those incredible comments he’s been getting in the page linked above! “How dare you degrade our national icon Amitabh Bachchan?” Meaning: “I need to say these things about the B so that I […]

God Tussi Great Ho (Hindi, Sajid Wajid)

Let’s party is a lame attempt at the Shankar Ehsaan Loy kind of music, while the title song is an irritating mess. The Aati kya khandala knock-off with the Malad angle, Tujhe aksa beach ghuma doon is surprisingly neat with a childishly catchy tune! Neeraj Shridhar sounds unlike his usual ebullient self in the stylish […]
