Jo Dooba So Paar, It’s Love in Bihar: Music Review

Of course, the movie is supposed to be interesting and so is the music in case of Jo Dooba So Paar, It’s Love in Bihar, if you have seen the promo even once. Here is a review of the album, composed by Manish J Tipu.

The album starts with Tochi Raina and Pia Sukanya’s Shiv ka baaje damru. The song, which is supposed to be romantic, has been added some linguistic elements which can make you laugh too, like ‘chanda bhi kankhi se dekhe tujhe, kudrat ka khela hai tu full too.’ The music and arrangements are simple but powerful and suit the settings of the movie.

The next song, Raghubir Yadav’s Andey garam garam is a satire with the basic tune of Andey garam garam going on that of Vande Mataram. The lyrics of the song, which are probably the most important thing here, are quite interesting, and in places quite thought-provoking. In short, even though this one is not as straightforward from the first line as Mehngai Dayan was, I’d say the song is bang on.

Mod: Music Review (Tapas Relia)

Shivam Pathak and Shreya Ghoshal’s ‘Tu hi tu‘ is nice in music, its orchestration, and singing as well. The slow, restricted number with relatively light music is easy on ears, while Shivam Pathak’s so-heard voice seems really nice in the song.

The next song, Ae meri jaaniya, happens to be a solo for Shivam, and he, kind of expectedly, sounds a lot like in the footsteps of Sonu Nigam, in his early days, though the husky touch give a different character to his voice. Nice singing by him on the slow number, but I guess there is scope for improvement for him, more in the level of confidence.

Peepli Live: Music Review

Aamir Khan is a pucca perfectionist. This time round he makes a movie touching the very Indian ground of Indian villages and who he chooses to compose and sing – Indian Ocean, along with Nageen Tanvir, Ram Sampath and Raghuvir Yadav. Here is a review of his album Peepli [Live].

The album starts with Indian Ocean’s Des Mera Rangrez ye baabu. The song is a typical Indian Ocean piece with their familiar voices and instruments. The song is a satirical one on India and the country’s system from top to bottom. Swanand Kirkire and Sanjeev Sharma write some good lyrics and words like ‘raai pahaad hai kankar shankar’ say a lot among them. Must listen. For all the music and words.

Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge: Music Review

Atithi tum kab jaoge is not the music album you were expecting. But then, it gives you an idea of what you can expect from the movie.
