2017 – Hindi film songs I liked (Playlist link embedded)

This post first appeared here - https://moifightclub.com/2017/12/24/rewind-2017-film-songs-moifightclub/ To quote Stephen Witt, Listening to hundreds of new releases a year could lead to a kind of jaded auditory cynicism. Last year, I wasn’t expecting a lot, and the year was fine. This year, I wasn’t expecting much yet some albums surprised me (Thank God I have always been … Continue reading 2017 – Hindi film songs I liked (Playlist link embedded)

Music review – Hamari Adhuri Kahaani

Like it or not, Mohit Suri gives out contemporary melodies which resonate long after the film leaves. Hamari Adhuri Kahani music is no different. With a new talent 'Ami mishra' giving out the 'teri galiyan-sque' song for the film and Arijit in top form in the title song (Thanks to his collaboration with the soothing … Continue reading Music review – Hamari Adhuri Kahaani

Music review – Dil Dhadakne do

A soundtrack which will depend on 'Great locales', 'exotic settings' and 'tourist attractions' to get wah wah from the crowd. On standalone basis, it is a disappointing joke of an effort from S.E.L. who sound exactly how they have been sounding since quite a while with rare exceptions like D-Day, Bhaag Milkha and few more. … Continue reading Music review – Dil Dhadakne do

Music review – Bombay Velvet

Sharing my music review of Bombay Velvet.. http://www.bbc.co.uk/hindi/multimedia/2015/05/150515_bbc_music_vm.shtml Shallow, over the top presentation of tunes which could have been so much more, but are let down due to lazy lyrics. Appears over produced and is not at all durable. Buckle up people! Please don't feed me bullshit about how hard you have worked for an … Continue reading Music review – Bombay Velvet

Inkaar – Music review

A very ‘electric’ start to the song (titled Darmiyan), might trick you into believing this is one of those ‘wannabe bollywood rock’ sort of song but then Swanand kirkire intervenes melodiously and makes you smile. The tune is playful, the tone romantically secretive and the music arrangement - excellent! At times (especially when Swanand goes … Continue reading Inkaar – Music review

Jab tak hai Jaan – Music review..Almost

The way ‘Saans’ starts, one does feel the sound of A.R. Rahman trying to hit you. Shreya Ghosal comes up with an echo (and a lot of ‘dhafli’ in the background and some unnecessary violins that more or less go on and on). Mohit Chauhan has probably done a doctorate in such slow mood songs … Continue reading Jab tak hai Jaan – Music review..Almost

ik Bagal mein chand hoga – Lyrics – Gangs of WasseyPur

Self explanatory 🙂 इक बगल में चाँद होगा, इक बगल में रोटियां,  इक बगल में नींद होगी, इक बगल में लोरियां,  हम चाँद पे रोटी की चादर डालकर सो जायेंगे,  और नींद से कह देंगे लोरी कल सुनाने आयेंगे.  इक बगल में खनखनाती सीपियाँ हो जाएँगी,  इक बगल में कुछ रुलाती सिसकियाँ हो जाएँगी,  हम सीपियों में … Continue reading ik Bagal mein chand hoga – Lyrics – Gangs of WasseyPur

Gangs of Wasseypur – Humnee ke chhori ke – lyrics & meaning

Rockstar – Music review

This post first appeared here - http://bit.ly/moifightclub In the times of ‘gone with the click’ I cannot remember the last time when the curiosity of a music score being released was even half as it was for the soundtrack of ‘Rockstar’. Guilt is my witness as I shamelessly searched all the ‘shady’ sites to catch hold … Continue reading Rockstar – Music review
