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.

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
