I am so grand. I am so grand. I am very grand. Also, did you know I am grand? My innocent question - Where did the melody go? A forgettable outing for Pritam, but what a fabulous pen Amitabh Bhattacharya has got here. My review below. https://soundcloud.com/almostareview/bbc-music-review-kalank-19-04-2019
You can listen to the review of this album here. I apologise for the bad quality of sound, all my fault. This review appeared first on B.B.C. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06jqmhp Do yourself a favour and explore Katyo chuko at every platform you can. Mohammed Muneem Niazi is a treasure. Loved the song. a bit. too. much. Pity … Continue reading Laila Majnu 2018 – Music review
You can listen to the music review of Dhadak here - https://www.bbc.com/hindi/media-44824468 Loved the album, though I would still prefer 'Yaad laga' over 'Pehli baar' and boy did I miss 'Atach baya'

You can listen to the review of this album here - http://www.bbc.com/hindi/media-43126708 An album that reminds me of Shiv kumar Batalvi in le dooba and saare sapne kahin ho Gaye (from Tum yaad aaye) in Yaad hai.

With Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra teams up with the ‘usually good but slightly out of touch these days’ Shankar Ehsaan loy. Lyrics are by Prasoon Joshi. Predictably, the album has a brilliant ‘Gurbani’. While Daler Mehndi does a good job, it is the excellent violins throughout and the cello in the beginning that … Continue reading Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013) – Music review
You can listen to my music review here http://www.bbc.co.uk/hindi/entertainment-40829653 An album that plays very well within the brief it is provided with some excellent artists at work.
You can listen to my review of the music of Naam Shabana here http://www.bbc.com/hindi/media-39385736 The album that has a distinction of being brought down to the lowest common denomination thanks to the remixes and reimagination (overdone) of an old song. The other two songs are good though
You can listen to my music review of Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya here - http://www.bbc.com/hindi/entertainment-39156009 Energetic, missing the mark often but with two solid filmi songs which are original, thankfully. You can listen to the full album and find all artist credits here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTRsPv3r5b0
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
Shreya Ghosal has teamed up with Deepak Pandit to give us a ghazal album Humnasheen. The album starts with Ye Aasman. With rich music arrangement (that remains so throughout the album), this ghazal is treated like a typical ghazal and that's a relief. The ghazal has just the right amount of 'thehraav' that you come … Continue reading Humnasheen – Ghazals by Shreya Ghosal
With the O.S.T. of some films 'celebrating 100 years of cinema' hooked and cooked with, here comes an unashamedly party album that is not confused about it's identity and presentation. Slowley Slowley - Heavy bass arrangements and a ‘phunk' start scream ‘party song’ right from the word go! The atmosphere is created superbly within the … Continue reading Go Goa Gone – Music review
I know this isn't a professional blog. Actually it's not even a blog. I don't even have my domain name, plus my twitter handle doesn't have 'music' or 'centimeter' in it! So this tracklist is not confirmed at all and I accept no liability whatsoever on it's correctness. Please consult the actual 'blogs' for the … Continue reading Go Goa Gone – Tracklist (unofficial)
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
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!
Ala Barfi! - Right from the first moment when you hear the whistle, you know this song is all about fun! A narrative of the alleged 'sad' life of Barfi, the song takes a lighter take on the situation rather than brooding over it (Sanjay Leela bhansali, take note). There are 2 versions of this … Continue reading Barfi! Music review…almost
Mashallah - (Composed by Sajid wajid) All the cliches start this song (a girl going 'oh yalla' and all that). The mood is truly Arabic and a 'bhaijaan' chrous makes no bones about the fact that the song is indeed for Bhaijaan to lazily walk in and out and do some actions in between, if he feels … Continue reading Ek tha tiger – Music review
There was a time when I used to feel Vishal Shekhar (hereafter referred at times as VS) are the hope for hindi film music. Then so many similar soundtracks happened and it all faded away. I was (Still am) vocal of their 'same sound'. The soundtrack of 'Kahaani' gives me a gentle punch by showcasing … Continue reading Kahaani – Music review
