Kaho is very Enrique’ish and the song is middling at best. Atif’s other composition, Hona tha pyar, is the real deal; lilting guitar, beautiful tune and brilliant vocals by Atif and Hadiqa. Sajjad Ali’s Din pareshaan hai is a fabulous listen with a deeply affecting tune. Director Shoaib Mansoor’s three tracks are diametrically different – […]

Hale dil by Harshit Saxena seems like a good enough tune complete with a Pritam-styled humming phrase, but that incongruent rhythm and Harshit’s own vocals jar. Its acoustic version fares much better, in comparison. Of the two songs by Sangeet & Siddharth Haldipur, Aa zara is the one that scores with superlative vocals by Sunidhi, […]

Evan ivan seems pedestrian as a tune, but the composer’s lovely little nuances make up for that. Laka laka is a decent kuthu, well orchestrated, but Prasanna’s relatively softer lead vocals plays spoilsport. As is norm for any composer in Tamil, Ponga vechom goes native folk with a vengeance, while the title song goes bombastic […]

Rocking shocking family, despite blatantly reusing Jaidev’s own incredibly popular track’s – Jassi’s Dil le gayee Gujarat di – format and rhythm, still makes for a catchy listen. Dance like a Punjabi has a massy, Pritam’ish outlook, more so because of Neeraj Sridhar’s lead vocals, but it is foot-tapping, no doubt. Tere bin jiya na […]

Airtel Super Singer’s Alka Ajith makes a scintillating debut with Chirakengu; a mesmerizing combination of the little girl’s vocal prowess and Sreenivas’ brilliant tune. The song’s duet version pales in comparison, but the alternate tune is endearing too! Sujatha is in great form in Ithile, as usual, but the serene tune takes a strange, half-heartedly […]

Beyond the cleverly unparliamentary premise, Bhaag D.K. Bose also has attitude-loaded lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya and a highly energetic guitar-backed arrangement, both of which make this manic track thoroughly endearing! Nakkaddwaley disco sees Keerthi Sagathia doing a Nusrat, but with hilarious sentences; this one’s almost like one of Nusrat’s international fusion projects…just that this is […]

Prashant Pillai’s Bali is trippy, but perhaps goes overboard. He gets his groove in Nasha and O Yaara – eminently tuneful, both! It’s also easy to identify Amit Trivedi in his adequately-grungy Fareeda. Amar Mohile’s RGV-influenced mediocrity thankfully ends with Josh, while Mikey McCleary’s reggae-recreation of Hawa hawai is Suman Shridhar’s show! Chandan Shive’s superb […]

Aashish Rego and Shree D’s title song is cinema-school-love template all the way. Antenna is standard Pritam material – the kind he makes Neeraj Shridhar sing usually…Benny Dayal does the honors here; foot-tapping and catchy. School ke din, Better not mess with me and Undi the condi form the perfect regurgitated, messy triumvirate – exactly […]
