Tere bina, with its sparse, Father Figure-like (George Michael) rhythm works largely because of Arijit and Priya’s soaring vocals, even as the tune is largely perfunctory. Priya’s solo sad version perhaps brings the tune’s depth better! Bantai has that immediate Ganpat connection. Perhaps it was instigated by director Apoorva Lakhia who was behind that film […]

Bhoomi (Music review), Hindi – Sachin-Jigar

Dilshad Khan’s sarangi truly stands out in Lag ja gale where Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s dependable—and predictable—voice holds the earnest melody. Tejas Vinchurkar’s flute props an already catchy Trippy trippy. Neha Kakkar rocks the rendition, interjected by Badshah. Kho diya is absolutely lovely! Sachin’s rendition of the prayer-like, serene melody is outstanding, with beautifully understated […]

Simran (Music review), Hindi – Sachin-Jigar

Lagdi hai thaai maps perfectly to the enthusiasm and liveliness of Queen’s London Thumakda, with Gujarati zest replacing Punjabi zaniness. Jonita Gandhi and Guru Randhawa rock the rendition that has a breathless, foot-tapping appeal. Jonita’s closing drunk-drawl is a lovely touch! Sunidhi Chauhan is easily and absolutely the star of Pinjra tod ke that starts […]

Disco disco supposedly had some input from Karan Johar. It shows. Amidst compelling 80s-style disco funk from Malayalam and Zeb’s Ishquiya (Lipstick Under My Burkha), this one’s bland Punjabicized abomination. Baat ban jaye fares better with its likeable bounce, though it’s templatized pop. Arijit and Shreya (lovely lower pitched antara!) are dependably good in the […]

Guru Randhawa and Rajat Nagpal get composing credit for Suit, an already super-hit 2016 Punjabi track composed by Intense (who is credited for ‘original music’, though it’s the same!) and sung by Guru Randhawa and Arjun! Catchy, competent, albeit generic song. Sukhbir produces yet another remix of Oh ho ho ho, credited to Abhijit Vaghani […]

In Maana ke hum yaar nahin, Parineeti Chopra sounds earnest enough to carry the lovely ghazal’ish melody. But earnestness alone doesn’t seem enough, as is quite evident from multiple points in the song. That there is also a duet version of the same song featuring the inimitable Sonu Nigam (along with Parineeti) only accentuates the […]

Dawn Cordo’s ethereal vocals go perfectly with the main tune of Satrangi that is equally dreamy orchestration to boot, besides Arijit Singh’s involved singing. The jaunty garba rhythm is no doubt catchy—ending in a frenzy, at that—but Gori Radha ne kado kaan has a thoroughly engaging melody as well. Zindabad re (and Amdavad re), despite […]

The title song is a straight-to-the-point fun track that hammers Pag, Peg, Swag set amidst glitzy Punjabi coolth, with a cute outing by Tanishkaa. Ditto with Beat pe booty‘s catchy Punju-Hiphop. Sachin-Jigar aim high in Toota jo kabhi tara‘s sweeping melody and it works pretty well, in Atif Aslam and Sumedha Karmahe’s confident vocals. Atif […]

Amaal’s two songs – Main hoon hero and O Khuda – are engaging, and Armaan sings it with the right feel. In Main hoon’s other version, Amaal performs musical-photoshop on Salman Khan’s vocals. Jassi Katyal’s Yadaan teriyaan is maudlin, dated pathos. Meet Bros Anjjan’s Dance ke legend is loaded with every stock bit imaginable, on […]

Bezubaan‘s redux trades the earlier version’s Western sensibilities to desi-rap, powered by Vishal Dadlani’s vocals and ending on a similar high, like the original. The original film’s song, Sun saathiya, that the makers, for some odd reason did not add in that soundtrack, finally makes it to the soundtrack here. And deservedly so! Priya Saraiya […]
