Of Sajid Wajid’s three songs, Baaki sab and Photocopy are unbearably banal, but Tere naina, that sounds like the love child of Bullet Raja’s Saamne hai and Dabangg’s Tere mast mast, is a neat listen! Amal Malik’s Tumko to aana hi tha is sappy and cheesy; the House mix (Love you till the end), even […]

Dabangg 2 (Music review), Hindi – Sajid Wajid

Dagabaz re, that post-marriage addendum to Tere mast mast do nain, uses vastly similar tricks, to impress, again. PandeyJi Seeti seems to be constructed especially for Salman’s hip movement… and occasionally ours too. After using Zandu Balm in the earlier film, it’s Fevicol’s time in Fevicol se, but the tune is so embarrassingly 80s. Saanson […]

The title song is is juvenile and silly, despite some feeble effort with the peppy rhythm. Desi beat is equally bad – banally repetitive! Thankfully, Himesh works hard on the tune of Teri meri; lovely melody, beautifully sung by Rahat and Shreya, even if the arrangements are largely underwhelming. But it is guest-composer Pritam who […]

Tai tai phish and it’s variant, Aa rela hai are high on catchy Maharashtrian folk, but are strictly passable. Mohit Chauhan’s dependable vocals and Nitesh Tiwari’s lyrics prop Chatte batte, but Ziddi piddi isn’t so lucky despite ambitious orchestration. It’s when Amit gets kids to express themselves that things sound better; Ek school banana hai […]

Mix Mika and Devi Sri Prasad’s already iconic Telugu front-bencher pleaser, Ringa ringa…and you get Dhinka Chika; easily this year’s Munni badnaam. The rest of the 3 original tracks by Pritam pale in comparison, quite surprisingly! While Meri ada bhi regurgitates Jassi’s Jaidev Kumar composed Dil le gayi kudi, Humko pyar hua apes Pritam’s own […]

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 […]

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 […]

Barson yaaron is a full-throated, rock anthem with brilliant pauses (Laakh take da) and a mesmerizing finale invoking Lord Hanuman! The choice of vocals – Vishal Dadlani and Roop Kumar Rathod – is a masterstroke. Despite the mild ennui caused by the Salaam-e-ishq’ish sound, Man ko ati bhavey is damn good fun, but Feroz Khan’s […]

Don’t say alvida is sweet, sappy and very 90s – that Hinglish title is immensely cringe-worthy. Happening, to be entirely fair, has quite a likeable techno-qawali sound…if only it didn’t ape Kajrare so blatantly. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s Rabba only helps in stereotyping the singer, with a predictable pathos tune that sounds completely jaded. Tum […]

Music review: Wanted (Hindi – Sajid Wajid)

Everything about Love me is corny and moronic, while Ishq vishq is a confused mishmash where Kamaal Khan seems to have forgotten a huge chunk of his lyrics. Dil leke does have a nice, senti melody, but that background music doesn’t gel. Le le mazaa le is groovy – exotic sound akin to Viju Shah’s […]
