Bhoome gundramga and Godava are every bit the kind of dancy tracks one expects from Devi, and the man sure knows how to push the right buttons even amidst the mundane. Neeraj Shridhar’s Telugu Bengali and Jaspreet Jasz’s (and Suchitra) Ye pilla are heady and instantly catchy masala numbers. Hello hello and Diwali deepaanni are […]

Singham (Music review), Hindi – Ajay-Atul

Sukhwinder Singh’s title song is emphatic and very South Indian-style hero-intro’ish! The remix is decently functional too, surprisingly! And, about the other two (only) tracks, there is nothing fundamentally wrong with them – Maula maula, featuring Kunal Ganjawala and Richa Sharma’s vocals is harmonious and beautifully tuneful even as its remix completely kills it. But […]

Veera (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Ekkadekkada is predictable Thaman-material, but is still engaging, mainly due to NS Ramya’s confident vocals. O meri bhavri too employs all familiar Thaman stock-sounds to good effect in a tune that mildly resembles Band Baaja Baraat’s Dum dum. Chitti chitti reuses Thaman’s own Nagaram tune – sounds fresh, still. Hossanam (O sanam?) works like a […]

Everything that Devi adds to Rao gari abbai, Light theesko and Aakasam badhalaina only makes them more jaded – mega recycle; Sagar and Megha do make desperate attempts to save the last one with their lively vocals. Dol dol dol baje escapes a similar fate because of its rhythm, while the techno pathos in Badhulu […]

Brindavanam (Music review), Telugu – Thaman S

Remo’s Yuvakula is at best a poorly-sung, noisy mess. But the composer works up a catchy, bombastic techno-folk number in Eyi raja, while Karthik and Suchitra’s Nijamena is what Manisharma’s melodies are usually made of; similar in sound, scope – pleasing nonetheless. Vachadura is standard, rhythmic jingoistic fare, despite composers like Koti and Keeravani pitching […]

Naan Mahaan Alla (Tamil, Susindran)

If there’s one recent Tamil film that evoked a rather loud ‘What the f***?’ from me, it is Naan Mahaan Alla. Here’s a film that has everything going for it but actually ends up making a hapless mishmash of it all! The template seems largely similar to Vetrimaran’s vastly-superior Polladhavan, starring Dhanush. The stark lower […]

Oru maalai neram…neat flute phrases, but tedious tune. The pathos-laden Theivam illai…even more so! That leaves us with just two more songs in the soundtrack and that’s where Yuvan scores big time! Iragai pole is vintage Yuvan, if that word can be used for such a young composer! It has everything one expects from the […]

I have this terrible habit of postponing to watch certain films…for no apparent reason. Magadheera was one of them and I saw it just last night, almost after an year of its release. Now, I have read many reviews about the film – most were ecstatic and many were reasonably satisfied giving it 3.5 out […]

Hosahore is literally racy and settles into a nice groovy rhythm, while Benny Dayal’s Yeyo goes full blast in glitzy orchestration and vocalized effects to support Prabhas’ snazzy dance moves. Bulle is that mandatory folk’ish item number that sounds every bit forced and predictable. Pranama‘s regurgitated arrangements can help an already stale tune only so […]

Music review: Oum Shanti (Telugu – Ilayaraja)

Even though the distracting rhythms belie the usual Ilayaraja-standard, Ottesi chebutha is pretty street-smart and catchy. In the title song, even if the dated synth jars, Raja works his magic on the curiously retro-style tune, while the cringe-worthily-titled Flying on the moon’s pallavi and interludes is a throwback to the classic Raja format and is […]
