In the last 5 years, 2018 was easily the best when it came to film music. It was also the year in which the drip irrigation music release technique ('release one song when you want and let them wait for the album') was at its peak(?). At the time this post is getting baked, … Continue reading 2018 – Film Music Round Up + Playlist

What a lazy album that borders on cringeworthy and familiar cringeworthy effort. You can listen to my music review of this horrible effort by such talented team here http://www.bbc.com/hindi/media-40902523
Udta Punjab - Music review (Text and audio link)

Every project of his is welcomed by music lovers almost the … Continue reading Music review – Fitoor
After Bombay Velvet, Amit trivedi is back with a rather enjoyable album. The sound of the cheeky 'mata ka email' is crude yet adorable largely due to the lyrics. In sooiyan, we will hear Amit Trivedi going the 'typical bollywood song' way which is a relief as it shows he is also human! The title … Continue reading Guddu Rangeela – Music review
An abridged version of the review first appeared here http://www.timeoutmumbai.net/music/cd-review/album-review-queen Amit Trivedi teams up with the lyricst Anvita Dutt to give us the music of Phantom films’ Kangna Ranaut - Raj Kumar Rao starrer Queen. True to the film’s theme, London Thumakda starts in Punajbi celebration mood and Labh janjua doesn’t miss a single beat … Continue reading Queen – Music Review
This year amidst the barrage of pre tuned item numbers, there was a lot of good music that made it’s way to our ears cutting out all the noise. The year started on a good note with films like Matru ki bijlee ka mandola and Kai po che that had a good mix of folk and … Continue reading 2013 Hindi film music – Vanishing traditional touch?
Staying close to the premise of the film is not something most music composers know in our lovely industry. Recently though, Music albums of Go Goa Gone and few others have successfully wrapped themselves around the feel of the film and boy were they good! Amit Trivedi’s latest offering - Ghanchakkar joins the league of … Continue reading Ghanchakkar – Music review
Sukhwinder starts Give it up for bachchan! in a storytelling fashion reminding you of once in vogue the ‘natak-nautanki’ style of singing songs wherein singers used to talk/converse and then sing and repeat this midway into the song. Amit trivedi hits you then with neat arrangement almost immediately with liberal ‘BigB hain!’ and the neat … Continue reading Bombay Talkies – Music review…Almost!
I thought the music release of Rockstar was the most delayed but then Kai Po Che happened! Thankfully the music was released BEFORE the film released! As @MrNarci rightly pointed out, the delay in the music release could have been due to the fact that with just 3 songs, the buzz is difficult to be … Continue reading Kai Po Che – Music review
A Chimta coupled with slow beats and a naughty punjabi flute..all this along with an excellent group of back up vocals (the ‘hac! hac!’...marvellous!) arrest you when Kikli Kaler di starts. Naughty without being loud the song instantly profiles a casanova who has too many ‘balls in the air’. Pinky Maidasani Yo Yo Honey Singh … Continue reading Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana – Music review
Wakda - Excellent Morchang starts the song with the mridangam joining in later and superb nadaswaram leading the way for Amit Trivedi (who is now joined by the keyboards as well, by the way). A song talking about the ‘inevitable’. The song has a leisurely pace occassionally lifted by nasaswaram and a lot of tabla and … Continue reading Aiyyaa – Meezik review!
ये पोस्ट सबसे पहले यहाँ छपी है - The complete track listing and credits and an option to buy can be found here 1. Jiya ho bihar – The song starts with faint ‘thaaps’ as if a traditional song but soon is joined by electric guitars and then the techno arrangement leads us to the very … Continue reading Gangs of Wasseypur – Music review (Ok…Almost!)
Somewhat weird promos and an over emotive 'hero' arrested the attention. May be YRF is trying hard to sound 'raw', I thought. I heard the album and well... Ishaqzade - The title song (giving you an intense 'Udaan' sound) starts a gentle 'bigoool' starts the song in way as to tell us something big is … Continue reading Ishaqzaade – Music review…Almost!
