Heroine (Music review), Hindi – Salim-Sulaiman

Halkat jawani is one of those songs that was conceptualized as an item song from scratch, with seemingly generous instructions to include all the elements of previous ‘hit’ item songs. Harmless, but vacuous. For Khwahishein, Shreya’s diva act fits perfectly for the gorgeous pop tune. Main heroine hoon‘s Bond’ish tune sits uncomfortably over its cringe-worthy […]

Agent Vinod (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

The officially credited Rasputin homage, I Will Do The Talking Tonight, is surprisingly effective – a pulsating, catchy track that makes whimsical use of the original’s hooks! Pungi is quirky fun; funky vocals led by Mika, and an addictive, foot-tapping sound/genre strongly reminiscent of Viju Shah’s Aar Yaa Paar number, Tamma Tamma Ele! Pritam seldom […]

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 […]

Ra.One (Music review), Hindi – Vishal Shekhar

Chammak challo is Vishal Shekhar’s own Jai ho, with Akon; instantly catchy, with a musical package that incorporates Tamil verses by Hamsika Iyer, even as it seems to offer a subtle nod to Choli ke peeche, at places! Criminal cleverly morphs Akon’s predominantly western sound with the Indian sound helmed by Vishal. Dildara is another […]

Golmaal 3 (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Golmaal’s new title song pales in comparison to Vishal Shekhar’s Sean Paul’ish title song that it briefly evokes in the beginning! Apna har din‘s only saving grace is that repetitive hook that is sung, helpfully, repeatedly, while Pritam does a very, very clever version of Pet Shop Boys’ Go West, in Ale – Neeraj Shridhar […]

There is an overriding soul-style sound in this soundtrack that seems very appealing. It’s more pronounced in the piano-laden Reham O Karam, that starts blissfully serene before escalating its notes, and in Sun le dua, an all-out mellow tune that rides entirely on Bela Shende’s Shreya’s scintillating vocals. Rahat-led Aankhon mein is predictably sweet and that […]

Kuch to baaki hai, apparently, has Himesh’s pre-contortion vocals, which was mildly more tolerable – this is a fairly enjoyable tune! The title song is entirely stale and outdated, while Tum chain ho seems like a reworking of some classic number and is saved only due to Sonu’s heartfelt singing; Vineet Singh’s unplugged version sounds […]

All izz well is no doubt funky and does a 2.0 version of Anu Malik’s pet sound (dhumpachikitha anyone?), but this one-hook-trick can only go so far. Zoobi doobi with its faux-retro-filmy sound is almost pedestrian with extraordinarily predictable sounds, while Shaan’s evocatively penned Behti hawa is perhaps the best this soundtrack has to offer. […]

Music review: Kurbaan (Hindi – Salim-Sulaiman)

Shukran Allah is predictably and genuinely pleasing, particularly, the prominent title phrase rings long after the song is over. Sukhwinder and Kailash Kher have a really harmonious session in Dua, while Salim excels in the Ali maula, a phrase that has been over-used, but transforms into a haunting track here. Shruti Pathak’s Rasiya is breathtakingly […]

Don’t say alvida is sweet, sappy and very 90s – that Hinglish title is immensely cringe-worthy. Happening, to be entirely fair, has quite a likeable techno-qawali sound…if only it didn’t ape Kajrare so blatantly. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s Rabba only helps in stereotyping the singer, with a predictable pathos tune that sounds completely jaded. Tum […]
