Kal Manja (Music review), Kannada – Emil

Komal mast kamaalu goes all out with an arsenal of catchy sounds but nothing works in unison. Saindhavi’s vocals rock Yaare yene helidharu, while Emil’s tune and orchestration sound considerably better. Jassie Gift’s Knock out is a regurgitated kuthu track with nothing original. Binny’s Indhe kanno seems like a curious combination of the Hamsalekha-style tune […]

Top recent listens – January 2011

Rumor has it – Adele (Album: 21) Adele’s second studio album, 21, is one of the best reviewed albums in recent times. That was enough for me to sample it and I love the album. ‘Rumor has it’ in particular, is a permanent fixture in my office drives! Jaanu na jaanu na – Utt Pataang […]

Paesu (Music review), Tamil – Yuvan Shankar Raja

Vennira iravugal is typical Yuvan – every bit of the song is reminiscent of Yuvan’s signature style, topped by his own singing that goes stylishly off-key occasionally. En per devathai and Unthan varthayil seem like a labored melodies reflective of Yuvan’s former, middling self when this film may have been conceived. Ithayam pesuthey starts off […]

I was indeed in town, things happened quite fast and I got an invite for the Shankar Ehsaan Loy Unplugged gig at The Leela, courtesy Standard Chartered Private […]

Tanu Weds Manu (Music review), Hindi – Krsna & RDB

RDB’s Sadi gali sounds as good as it sounded a few years ago – Lehmber Hussainpuri’s earthy vocals is one huge reason why this catchy tracks works almost immediately! Debutant composer Krsna opens his work with Mika’s Jugni, a perfect template for a techno-Punju dance track – still a great listen, hitting all the right […]

The title track starts of intriguingly even as Chinmayi brings in the pleasant melody amidst breathlessly appealing rap by Iraj, Bullet and PsychoMantra. Karthik and Mahati rule Anthi neram and Kannale‘s gorgeous tunes respectively, ably supported by PsychoMantra’s occasional, equally lilting rap. Krishan and Iraj’s J-Town Story is full-fledged hip-hop, with a catchy tune and […]
