Week 112: On JioSaavn | On YouTubeFrom March 22nd, when I shared the last Weeklies, to this weekend… this is perhaps the longest break I have taken in writing for Milliblog since I started in 2005! It’s not just that new music literally stopped flowing […]

13

13 years of Milliblog. That’s 13 years of a hobby! From the post where I wrote about completing 12 years, where I had briefly alluded to the point, 13th has been significant. As I had reflected in my post last year, I finally took the plunge and stopped doing reviews for all/most soundtracks. And moved […]

Milliblog Weeklies – JAN28.2018

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 9: Playlist on Saavn. (Only on Saavn this week, given the absence of quite a few songs on Apple Music. Some songs are missing on Saavn too, so have added them as YouTube embeds.) A note on each song in the playlist. — Kareja […]

Hawa vich‘s buoyant tune gets a mighty bump from Diljit’s, and in particular Sunidhi Chauhan’s, fantastic vocals, and the lively folk rhythm. Diljit rocks the joyous melody in Kalliyan kulliyan, though a minor musical phrase at 0:39 (commercial loop?) is a faster version of Ajaneesh Loknath’s Kalkond Bitte (Sundaranga Jaana) prelude! Ho gaya talli is […]

Dawn Cordo’s ethereal vocals go perfectly with the main tune of Satrangi that is equally dreamy orchestration to boot, besides Arijit Singh’s involved singing. The jaunty garba rhythm is no doubt catchy—ending in a frenzy, at that—but Gori Radha ne kado kaan has a thoroughly engaging melody as well. Zindabad re (and Amdavad re), despite […]

Hitman – November 21, 2015

Originally published in The Hindu. Paatta podunga ji – Oru Naal Koothu (Tamil – Justin Prabhakaran) As if Justin Prabhakaran’s Ilayaraja invocation isn’t enough—when the violins play in the first interlude of Enakkaaga porandhaaye, from his debut, Pannayaarum Padminiyum, one can almost picture Rajinikanth in white and white, with his hands in the pocket walking […]

Bey yaar sapna nava has a decent pop sound that doesn’t add anything beyond managing to sound generically good. But Sachin sings the song’s other, more pensive version, Bey yaar tara vina and this one has a lot more heart! Kirti Sagathia handles Rakkhad in his quintessential style, with generous Gujarati touch too, while the […]
