Haan yahi pyaar hai overdoses on cliched lyrics (can the government declare ‘Dheere dheere haule haule’ as an illegal phrase), but has a charming ring to it. Wake up now sounds like poor man’s Vishal Shekhar; all sound with no zing, while Mahi mahi is massively cringe-worthy Punjabi template. Daler and Mamta Sharma’s Katto gilehri […]

Chori kiya has a simple tune, simpler arrangements; perfect rhyme from last century. Dabangg theme is full-on Latino masti, with smart dialogs too, while Humka peena hai seems to have been conceptualized with Salman’s foot in mind – standard folksy tune, however. Udd udd dabangg seems highly influenced by Vishal Bharadwaj, but is no patch […]

Rashid Ali soars far above the predictable tune and orchestration in Keh do zara and infuses life into the ballad that seems vaguely modeled along Kabhi kabhi Aditi from JTYJN. It’s remix version too is quite a good listen! Nacha main evokes a generous dose of ennui, but it does hold an enthusiastic streak that […]

Music review: Veer (Hindi – Sajid-Wajid)

Taali is no doubt ambitiously mounted, but it’s still a largely lackluster and standard package, while in Surili akhiyon wale, Rahat sings something that seriously stereotypes him – it is a pleasant listen, however. Salaam aaya is a rather old-fashioned melody that strangely works for its sheer simplicity. Meherbaniyan has the Salman-style, street-smart appeal, while […]

Nazar se nazaria pays a rich, lavish tribute to Pritam’s already inspired Crazy kiya re, even though the main similarity is camouflaged quite skillfully. Ya Rabula Rabbi is actually sung Yaar Abdullah Al Ameen and sounds like a catchy knockoff of a Middle Eastern track while Jack & Jill is a torture in every way […]

The obviously Panchamesque title song is too predictable to impress. Aalam guzarne ko is old-school, Anand Milind-styled melody, easy on the ears, while Sonu doing a Mika in Soniye billori is just silly. Aasman jhuk gaya uses Anu Malik’s Latino template and Jashn hai josh hai is steeped in filmi Middle Eastern style – both […]

Strangely enough, when Sajid Wajid get Palash Sen to croon the catchy Salma-O-Salma, beyond the rhythmic backgrounds, there’s a strong Euphoria element that seeps in. The title song is frivolous and boring, while the usually ebullient Neeraj Shridhar seems to have a gag on his mouth while singing Pal yeh aane wala. That gag is […]

God Tussi Great Ho (Hindi, Sajid Wajid)

Let’s party is a lame attempt at the Shankar Ehsaan Loy kind of music, while the title song is an irritating mess. The Aati kya khandala knock-off with the Malad angle, Tujhe aksa beach ghuma doon is surprisingly neat with a childishly catchy tune! Neeraj Shridhar sounds unlike his usual ebullient self in the stylish […]
