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

Muh Dikhai – Shafqat Amanat Ali

The first track is a punjabi number (maahi maahi) and even though Shafqat's singing is flawless, the song sounds cluttered due to various instruments which are used. You can't help but feel that the nature of the song didn't need such a wide array of instruments. Mind you, the instruments are in sync but there is … Continue reading Muh Dikhai – Shafqat Amanat Ali

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

CokeStudio at MTV – Season 2, Episode 1

Saathi Salaam - Ustad (yes I would address him as 'Ustad'. So what if MTV doesn't?) Sawan khan shakes and stirs the soul with a captivating start to this composition and Clinton quietly makes space for himself alongside the Ustad and delivers what is easily the most powerful song of this episode. The coordination, music … Continue reading CokeStudio at MTV – Season 2, Episode 1

Zindagi na milegi dobara – Music review…well almost! :)

1. Kab tak giney- Yes it is the electric guitar with quick tempo drums...what else do we expect from a movie with SEL (shankar ehsaan loy) these days. Ok Ok it does add a little bit of youth quotient to the sound of it.  Shankar mahadevan, Joi and Suraj Jagan sing this one.
