Holiday (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Arijit’s delightful singing lifts the already gorgeous tune of Aaj dil shayarana. Pritam’s tune is unusually structured and makes fantastic use of violin the background. Irshad Kamil’s lyrics completely dominate the sombre Naina, Pritam opting for a Rahman’ish pensive sound and Arijit is great form again. Blame The Night is punchy techno dance done well, […]

Harry’s not a Brahmachari has a frenzied techno sound that sits well atop the essentially Punjabi tune; Jazzy B and Divya Kumar seem perfect for the high-pitched song. I’m sorry tumse pyar ho gaya rides on Nikhil Paul George’s awesome vocals (and ably supported by Neeti Mohan and Mili Nair), but yes, Pritam’s spritely tune […]

The title song‘s 3rd variant is more glitzy, pointless sound the original tune; Naya’s Arabic version feels mildly different thanks to the language. Malang sounds safe – throws in Middle-Eastern exotica, familiar sufi to concoct an easily catchy song. Kamli holds some frenzied and innovative orchestration, while conforming to YRF’s Punjabi guidelines. Mohit Chauhan carries […]

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 […]

R… Rajkumar (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Gandi baat would put to shame any Tamil/Telugu composer – perfect in its energetic kuthu appeal, brilliantly sung by Mika and Kalpana Patowary. Saree ka fall is no different – harmonious South Indian rhythm and tune concoction – wonderfully foot-tapping, with fantastic vocals by Nakash Aziz and Antara Mitra. Mat maari is where things get […]

The very-Goan Tu mere agal bagal and the almost-kuthu Dhating naach are energetic, masala fun, but Hey Mr.DJ is plain bananas… err, corny. The gorgeous Main rang sharbaton ka is significantly better with Atif and Chinmayi singing it; Arijit seems oddly flippant in his version! Atif and Sunidhi ace their respective versions of Janam janam, […]

Javed Bashir gets another faux-sufi song in Ye tune kya kiya, but where earlier songs like this at least scored was in the vocals – Javed’s gruffy vocals actually goes against the template here. Tu hi khwahish tries best to recreate the 80s flashy sound but the tune hardly works… even Sunidhi sounds out of […]

Badtameez dil is heady and addictive; Benny rocks with his vocals! Balam pichkari too… foot-tapping holi song with superb singing by Vishal and Shalmali. Ilahi’s guitar-driven sound and children’s chorus is endearing; so are the two versions by Arijit and Mohit, but the tune is oddly unmoving. Ditto with Kabira; two versions and four singers, […]

Pritam re-use of a part of Bally Sagoo’s Gud naal ishq mitha is competent – heady Punjabi’ness; Tochi’s version trumps Sukhwinder’s, incidentally! Aao na is more energetic than the usual Pritam melody – good listen, barring Tulsi Kumar. She’s intrudes in Halki halki too, where Shaan tries hard to salvage the predictable goodness-all-around tune. Falak […]

Roxen’s Mustafa Zahid offers an extended version of the band’s own acoustic hit, Kaisay jiyein, in Hum jee lenge – largely predictable and staid Pakistani pop. Of the three songs by Pritam, Teri jhuki nazar, by Shafqat Amanat Ali, hardly raises above the familiar template. Ditto with Jaata hai tujh tak, sung by Nikhil Dsouza […]
