Arko Pravo Mukherjee’s recreation of Laxmikant Pyarelal’s Dayavaan number, Aaj phir tumpe is pretty good, though much credit is due to the original’s tune, besides Arijit and Samira Koppikar’s vocals. There is a remix of this remix too, funnily, in the soundtrack! Kabhi aayine, by Rashid Khan, is typical Mohit Suri musical formula; limited impact. […]

Ankit Tiwari’s very Pritam-style Galliyan is gorgeously mounted; his singing, the guitar and flute, lovelorn lyrics… all come together wonderfully! The film’s leading lady Shraddha Kapoor is surprisingly good despite the occasional rough edges in the unplugged version! Momina Mustehshan carries Soch Band’s (Rabbi Ahmed and Adnan Dhool) Nescafe Basement song, Awari’s ambient recreation mighty […]

Tequila wakila is a competently foot-tapping rehash of the typical Enrique/Ricky Martin sound, with great vocals by Shreya and Ankit. Ankit’s other composition, Sawaalon mein soars with its intriguing, sweeping tune thanks to Shreya’s fantastic vocals. Gopal, Anand, Pawan composed title song is adequately background’ish. The soundtrack’s highlight is Mithoon’s Shukra tera, a gorgeously serene […]

Mithoon overdoes his soaked-in-pathos sound in Baarish and Mujhe ishq se, both involving a searing ‘Yeeeeeeaaaaaareeeeyaaaaan’. The former works, in Aashiqui 2 mode, while the latter has Tulsi Kumar… ’nuff said. Honey Singh-composed Sunny sunny is frivolously catchy with clinical, repetitive hooks. Arko is saddled with the job of creating a ‘judai’ and an inspirational […]

Mithoon’s contribution, Tum hi ho is absolutely beautiful – Arijit’s solo, the duet with Palak Muchhal and the theme. Ankit Tiwari’s Sunn raha hai too is wonderfully impactful, with superb use of guitars and saarangi; Shreya’s version is filmy, sacharine-sweet, but. Jeet Ganguly owns the rest of the music which is strictly patchy and repetitive. […]

3G (Music review), Hindi – Mithoon & Amar Mohile

Despite its Pritam’ish chorus, Kaise bataaon is lovely, with the dependable KK and an adept singing debut by Sonal Chauhan! Its Cantabile version is perfectly a-capella’ish, aided by Abhishek Nailwal’s impactful vocals. Khalbali starts out uncannily like My Name Is Khan’s Tere naina, but gets its own flavor soon, with a punchy sound and excellent […]

Despite its questionable origins, Ye jism makes for an engaging listen; it is too Bhatt’ish for comfort, however. Arko’s other two songs work considerably better – Ali Azmat carries Maula‘s searing pain wonderfully well, while in the pleasantly tuned Abhi abhi, KK is flawless and endearing even as Akriti lends wonderful support with her part […]

Hale dil by Harshit Saxena seems like a good enough tune complete with a Pritam-styled humming phrase, but that incongruent rhythm and Harshit’s own vocals jar. Its acoustic version fares much better, in comparison. Of the two songs by Sangeet & Siddharth Haldipur, Aa zara is the one that scores with superlative vocals by Sunidhi, […]

Lamhaa (Music review), Hindi – Mithoon

Madno is archetypal Mithoon – Kshitij and Chinmayi infuse life into the predictably soulful tune, while Mika is an unlikely choice for the other version, Saajnaa; he does sound good! Salaam Zindagi sounds, at best, like a leftover Rahman tune, while Mithoon gets it wonderfully right with Main kaun hoon – fabulous lyrics by Amitabh […]

There’s hardly any doubt that I look forward to most of the mainstream composers’ new work – Rahman, Vishal Shekhar, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Yuvan, Ilayaraja, Pritam, Devi Sri Prasad, Mano Murthy etc. But, there are a few newbies who’s work I look forward to, with extra anticipation, primarily because their last soundtracks were pretty good! […]
