Asha Bhonsle adds gravitas to the ghazal’ish Prem mein tohre, but age-related strains are evident in her vocals. But compared to Kavita Seth’s oddly detached rendition, Asha’s version seems more nuanced and soulful. Anu Malik handles the music well, particularly the strings in the background. Rahat and Sonu go through the motions in Aazaadiyan, with […]

NW1W. Atrocious mess, between 7 credited composers (9, if you consider Meet Bros Anjjan as 3 individual composers). Keywords: Not Welcome Back, Anu Malik, Meet Bros Anjjan, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Siddhant Madhav, Mika Singh, Music MG, Abhishek Ray

Anu Malik channelizes his Ashoka/Refugee form again in Moh moh ke dhaage and in the two versions, by Papon and Monali Thakur, has a clear and easy winner! The title song is a messy hodge-podge, despite Kailash Kher and Nooran sisters. Barring the mod keyboard sound, Kumar Sanu’s Tu is a lovely, nostalgic throwback to […]

Hisss (Music review), Hindi – Assorted composers

Anu Malik’s Lagi lagi has some old world charm, but gets drowned in overindulgent music. His other song, Lafanaa, is item’ish chaos with borrowed rhythms and recycled hooks. Beyond the snake sees Shruti Haasan in fantastic form, thanks also to DKFP! Mallika Sherawat, in her singing debut in Sway hisses, chants, speaks and lets out […]

Bappi’s Miss Baabaloo is pitiably stupid while the middling Paki rock he attempts in Tere bin is noticeably better. Anu Malik raps inconsolably in Laal quile while his Chal mera haath pakad is irritating. If the soundtrack still survives it’s because of debutants, Sachin-Jigar! I will be there for you is effervescent with sparkling guitar, […]

From the promos, Om mangalam by RDB sounded mundane, but ironically, that is the best track of the soundtrack. And, it’s merely a passable track inspired no doubt by Singh is King’s sound. Anu Malik mauls the rest of the soundtrack with terribly jaded tunes and the most predictable sound arrangements – Lakh lakh is […]

Music review: Victory (Hindi – Anu Malik)

Money money is an irritatingly outdated dance (sigh!) track and Balla utha is as naive and silly as motivational tracks go in Hindi films. Aisa toh socha na tha, the sad song, is plain sad, with 90s Anu Malik touches while We love Kirket mind numbingly boring. Tu ne re digs from Malik’s 90s melody […]

Aegan is the perfect example of an entire crew pandering brazenly to a star, like many other star crews from Tamil Nadu. So, you have a soundtrack which forgets to mention the lyricist anywhere in the CD sleeve and starts with an uninspiring inspirational track, Odum varayil and a disheveled Hey salaa. Chale jaise hawayein […]

The Anu Malik Top 10!

In one of his 90s interviews in India Today (if I remember right!), Anu Malik gloated that people will definitely love his music in Main khiladi tu anari. This was post his super successful Baazigar, who’s songs were playing almost everywhere those days. I did like the songs of Baazigar and was quite intrigued by […]

Maan Gaye Mughall-E-Azam (Hindi, Anu Malik)

The title song is beyond mere blasphemy, since it ventures into completely incoherent cacophony, dragging with it a memorable line that we Indians hold dear! Anu shows flashes of his yesteryear sound in Marmari baahein, but the updated tune and strained vocals by Kunal Ganjawala and Mahalakshmi Iyer do no good, while the quasi qawali-ghazal, […]
