Milliblog India Top 10, 2013

Last year, I started a new annual property, besides the language-based lists. I called it Milliblog India Top 10 (the list from 2012) and with some comparisons between how Raja’s and Rahman’s career panned out, promptly landed the post into some pointless controversy. Let me avoid any such comparison this year – last year, it […]

Aagayam‘s choir-like opening is juxtaposed with a rather disjoint dubstep mix; the result is pretty interesting!

Devi Telugufies an otherwise predictable Latino template in Aww tuzo morgh korta; kudos to Neha Bhasin for infusing life into it too! O Sayonara is an interesting idea, mixing what sounds like rock, with a folk phrase, while Sooraj Santhosh does really well in the vocals. You are my love‘s staid boy-band pop tune is […]
