Bey yaar sapna nava has a decent pop sound that doesn’t add anything beyond managing to sound generically good. But Sachin sings the song’s other, more pensive version, Bey yaar tara vina and this one has a lot more heart! Kirti Sagathia handles Rakkhad in his quintessential style, with generous Gujarati touch too, while the […]

Fanny re is so un-Goan, employs very Punjabi lyrics and is sung by a Rajasthani singer, Mukhtiyar Ali! The song has a wacky, distinctly-European sound, and carries an undeniable charm! The song’s other version, Mahi ve, is ditto, with just Fanny replaced with Mahi! Mathias Duplessy croons Ding dong himself and the French-Portuguese mix is […]

Johnny Johnny is insanely catchy and with such intoxicating lyrics that it may just be banned in Gujarat! Priya is particularly fantastic with the female vocals! Veerey di wedding treads on similar territory, and gets at least the hook bang-on! Tera naam doon is breezy enough melody and sung well by Atif and Shalmali, but […]

Of the three songs by Sharib-Toshi, ironically, the only song that works is their recreation of Jawad Ahmed’s original, Samjhawan that is spruced up well, with engaging vocals by Arijit Singh and Shreya Ghoshal. The other two, Saturday (another recreation, original belonging to The Titans and Badshah) and Emotional fool are regulation style dance tracks. […]

Sachin Jigar get the Telugu masala idiom mighty well in Rowdy fellows, but it is a bit too templatized, with a very familiar and predictable hook to make any difference. But the duo get back to their Shuddh Desi Romance territory in Meher meher – lovely, breezy melody, with the harmonium’ish sound as the highlight, […]

Sachin-Jigar’s Issaq tera and Jheeni re are reminiscent of Pritam’s Jab We Met. They sound fantastic, nevertheless, thriving on excellent vocals by Mohit Chauhan (and Smita Jain for duet), and Rashid Khan and Prathibha, respectively! With Rahul Ram’s vocals, Sachin Gupta’s Bhole chale has Indian Ocean’s heady, free-flowing flavor. Sachin’s other song Aag ka dariya’s […]

Atif and Shreya are in great form in Jeene laga, a hummable breezy tune, despite the slightly spruced 90s sound. Shreya joins Atif again in the pleasant, lilting melody in Bariyan, while Atif even briefly sings in a falsetto in Rang jo lagyo, his spritely, Atif’ishly sweeping solo. Mika’s Hip hop pummy is a perfectly […]

Talia Bentson’s tantalizing vocals kick-start the heady Slowly slowly, while Jigar takes highly addictive ode to the good, dancy night to new heights! The anti-Monday anthem, Khoon choos le ups the ante further – a thoroughly enjoyable and wacky track with the occasional sitar and hilarious lyrics. Babaji ki booti, a trippy, smoked-out track has […]

Sajid-Wajid’s recreation of Bappi Lahiri’s super-hit, super-kitschy 80s originals – Naino mein and Taki taki – use the source material well, resulting in fairly entertaining versions in a fresh, new-kitschy way! It’s when the duo is entrusted with creating new material that they flounder – Dhoka is plain horrendous, while for the moronic Bum pe […]

Sachin Jigar’s reworking of Chaalbaaz’s Naa jaane is sufficiently funky thanks to oomphy vocals by Anushka Manchanda. Their other 2 songs – Capuchino, a cool offering with interesting vocals by Abhishek Nailwal and a neat Celtic hook, and Darbadar, a wonderfully arranged mod qawali of sorts, superbly sung by Monali Thakur – work very well […]
