Jodi Breakers Music Review

Jodi Breakers Music
Music Director :  Salim & Sulaiman

Kunwara : By Salim Merchant. In the Ladies vs Ricky Bahl zone. Peppy zone. Likable.
Bipasha : By Shradha Pandit and Shadab Faridi. Item song. No heavy beats but still good rendering. A good hearing. Shradha stands out.
Bipasha Remix : By Salim Merchant. Nothing grt. Still good hear.
Darmiyaan : By Shafqat Amanat Ali and Clinton Cerejo. Amanat's usual style. Slow and sad. Good for nighttime hearing. A song with classical elements executed excellently by amanat. Clinton cerejo's English is good too.
Darmiyaan Reprise : Shreya Ghoshal. Slow, unplugged nd beautiful!
Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai : By Salim Merchant. Salim proves again how good a singer he is. Good love song which is nostalgic. Excellent composition. Grt hear.!
Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai Remix : By Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Takes the song altoghether to a different level. Another example where a REMIX stands out as the song. RFAK is xcellent in vocals. Go for it.!
Jab mein tumhare saath hun : By Benny Dayal, Salim Merchant and Shilpa Rao. Situational song. Pleasent one. Pleasent hearing too. Benny Dayal is breezy. Altogether ends up in a superb song!

Overall, Jodi Breakers is a superb album whith each song standing out from each other. Has some very good melodies that is set to rule the charts if well promoted. Salim&Sulaiman comes out from the LVRB peppy mode. One good album in the start of 2012! GRT!

Ekk Deewana Tha Music Review

Ekk Deewana Tha Music
Music Director : A R Rahman
Hindi version of Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya, which was a stupendous score.!

Mohobbat : Sung by ARR, catchy tune. Minimal arrangements. Good listen.
Dost hai : By Naresh Iyer, Arya nd Jaspreet. Naresh is beautiful. Loved the raps. Tamil version was better. Still good.
Aromale : By Alphonse. Cult! Classic. No words. Beautiful.! Tamil version was better.
Hosanna ; By Leonne D'Souza nd Suzzane D'Mello. Grt piece of music. Good singing. Lyrics seems to be forced. Tamil version was better.
Phoolon Jaisi : By Clinton Cerejo nd Kalyani Menon. Hindi version of 'Omanapenne'. Average. It don't have the flow or the 'Omanatham'(or loveliness in Malayalam) in the lyrics. Good singing. Tamil version was better.
Sharminda Hoon : By Madhusree nd ARR. Hindi version of 'Mannipayya". Sweet nd Romantic. Good arrangements. Soulful tune. Go for it.
Sunlo Zara : By Rashid Ali nd Shreya Ghoshal. Wedding song. Grt singing by Rashid nd Shreya. Melodious nd chorus is catchy.
Zohra-Jabeen : By Javed Ali. Slow nd soulful. Javed does a good work. Still Karthik was better in Tamil version in terms of emotional quotient.
Broken Promises : By Shreya Ghoshal. This one's a gem!. With Shreya crooning a sombre, emotional nd nostalgic version of Aromale, rich in classical content, in an unplugged manner. It stands out in the entire album. Grt!! Grt!!
Moments in Kerala : By Prabhakar. Keyboard nd Violin. Perfect for nighttime hearing. Good.
Jessie's Land : By Megha. A light humming of Hosanna. Soothing.
Jessie's driving me crazy : Sanjeev Thomas nd Timmy. Complete hard rock. Grt arrangements. Good listen.

So overall its a superb album. Vinnaithandi Varuvaya was a fantastic one. The minuses in this Hindi version is its lyrics which seems unfitting in some songs nd unnecessary additions to the original. Maybe an independent reviewer who hasn't heard VTV may find it better. Any way go for it.!
