Wajid does a surprisingly good job in singing the bubbly Mukhtasar that, for some inexplicable reason, sounds a lot like London Paris New York’s title song! Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s Allah jaane is predictable, but is wonderfully serene and pleasant! Jabse mere dil ko‘s guitar and retro outlook is very appealing, as is Sonu and […]

Agneepath (Music review), Hindi – Ajay-Atul

Deva shree Ganesha plays out in filmy-frenzy bhajan format, but the duo crank up the creativity in the interludes, and the backgrounds. Chikni chameli turns out to be average fare – the composers reuse their own Jatra number from Marathi, but the rest of the country has already channeled this typical Marathi sound into South […]

The Kalinka-inspired Darling has an underwhelming rhythm…for such a mesmerizing tune! Usha Uthup and Rekha Bharadwaj make an incredible combo, but get their due only in the other version, Doosri Darling – the soundtrack’s magnificent highlight! This one gets an exciting and authentic Russian background, while Rekha’s vocals acquire a naughty edge. Vishal’s own vocals […]

The Pancham touch is smart and subtle in the title song‘s background; the enthusiasm quotient, in large part by Nikhil D’Souza and Monali Thakur’s vocals, is obvious and addictive. The second title song, featuring Vishal and Shilpa Rao is completely different and fuses Vishal Shekhar’ish rock with the Indian impressively! Lucky Ali completely rocks Hairat; […]

Alisha starts the soundtrack reasonably well with its spunky arrangements and fabulously cool vocals by Anushka and Salim Merchant. Even the title song has a pleasant tune that, without trying too hard, manages to retain its genial charm. It’s only with You and Me that a fatigue sets in – it does sound zingy but […]

If you’ve made a pact with Sohail’s annoying voice early on, it’s in Pyaari pyaari that things get excruciating. The first 4 tracks are – to be fair – pretty good; the sax-loaded title song, guitar-driven Jao na, the catchy Aja lehraate and the lovely melody in Bikhri bikhri, that is. Things take a painfully […]

The surf guitar-loaded DhanTeNan is no doubt reminiscent of Dick Dale’s legendary track, Misirlou (more popularly referred to as the theme from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction), but beyond broad, genre-influences, it stands on its own, as a hyper-enthusiastic dance track, with infectious vocals by Sukhwinder Singh! Fatak plays along predictably, but only till the guitar […]

Music review: Billu Barber (Hindi – Pritam)

Marjaani is a thumping, high-energy item song, but Love mera hit hit is Pritam pushing his luck – age-old hooks and stock rhythm. Neeraj is much better in the relatively slower You get me rockin, but for the auditory diarrhea in music; a similar problem in the rambling Ae Aa O too. Raahat Fateh Ali […]

The terribly predictable templates of Tujh mein rab and Haule haule are extremely annoying – but the earthy simplicity in both, along with heartfelt lyrics in the former just about salvages both tracks. Dance pe chance follows the long line of Punju-infused dancy tracks – pitiably humdrum. The nostalgic medley Phir milenge chalte chalte is […]

Music review: Dostana (Hindi – Vishal Shekhar)

Dostana is one of those mixed bag soundtracks that has Vishal and Shekhar sticking to their familiar, tried and tested sounds. So, while we have a bouncy Jaany kyun with fab vocals by Vishal, we also have a terribly cringe-worthy Desi girl! Saleem’s Ma da laadla is good fun with catchy hooks, while Shut up […]
