Striker Strikes Some Chords..!!

its Yuvan Shankar Raja giving music in hindi, you know you’re a tad apprehensive.. cos the tamil film industry doesn’t exactly work the way Bollywood does …but YSR is known for his syle of music.. If there’s someone in the Raja family after the maestro himself, I wud say YSR anytime.. so there’s an expectation too.. and well..Striker lives upto the apprehensions and expectation at the same time.. Completely.. if not urs atleast mine.. When you hear a movies surrounding a game of Carrom, I don’t expect much.. With YSR’s music there has to be something to look forward to.. The usual magical strings woven with beautiful soul-stirring words.. That’s what Striker is.. 3/5 is my personal score to the album

MUST LISTENsYun Hua (VB the great J) Pia Saanwara (for the soulful folks –read HIMANSHU* 😛 ) Cham Cham(mellifluous Sonu 😀 ) and Aim Lagaa (rocking Blaaze)

Okies…now the detailed review 😀

~

Yun Hua ~ Vishal Bhardwaj –  slight reminisces of Kaminey Title songs.. But the typical VB spell.. Mesmerizing music… Soothing words.. Serene instruments.. And you have a winner.. That’s what Yun Huaa is..The BEST SONG in this album yuppies m a VB FAN 😀 honestly sincerely obviously has to be CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Haq Se ~ Yuvan Shankar Raja, Siddarth– hindi song sung by YSR 😯 I was more shocked than curious.. it has his typical touch.. it has the south Indian influence.. In some places when YSR sings he reminds u of ARR albeit with a slightly heavy voice.. its an ok listen… I think this one would take some time to grow into me.. Till then CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Maula ~ Swanand Kirkire – starts with a folk feel to it.. And like all Maula songs.. Manages to make a mark in heart and head.. Heart cos of the endearing tune and head.. Cos of the lyrics.. I see a slight Dilli -6 feel in this.. And yes its sure to be catchy and gets stuck in ur head..ESP the lyrics and the tune… but doesn’t appeal to me much so CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Aim Laga ~ Blaaze – the most rocking number of the album.. When I say rocking.. I mean it literally.. Blaaze proves his mettle again..Rapper.. The funky interludes intermingled with the slight classical touch.. Bloody brill I wud say.. The most catchy swervy ubercool number in the album.. instantly catches on to you.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Bombay Bombay ~ Siddharth– starts with a dialogue explaining the life in BOMBAY.. After listening to Siddharth in Something Something Unakum Enakum.. I was def looking forward to his singing.. But then I must say That DON’T impress ME MUCH… the music yes.. It makes its mark.. Lines are catchy.. But siddharth’s voice personally seems to be a letdown to me.. Just for YSR this is CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Cham Cham ~ Sonu –  I don’t need any more reason to like this song J Sonu is enough for me to make it a must listen.. But making an unbiased opinion (YO! ME SAINT ME) this is one of the best songs in this album.. The mere sufi-ness in this song and the qawwali-ish feel is more than enough to take an instant liking to this one.. Definitely has to be CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Pia Saanvara ~ Sunidhi Chauhan – a soulful ballad.. Been ages since I heard sunidhi at her best… so used to listening her belting out peppy numbers that forgot she has the capability to croon in a way that makes u swoon… another lovely number in the album.. Super splendiferous number this one.. Hats off Sunidhi….CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Aim Lagaa Rickshaw mix.. I don’t like remixes.. And in some ways I don’t like this one too.. But in some places its so catchy that I can’t stop swaying with it.. So I leave the decision of this number with you.. NO CERTIFICATIONS on this one 😈

That’s about Striker… Some strike the right chords some missed..

Overall not a bad listen…

That’s it from Megzone for now..

Keep Smiliing..!! Keep Rocking..!!! Keep Blogging..!!

Cheerios..!! :mrgreen:

*I’m sure Himanshu is gonna kill me for this.. This is the second time I’ve taken his case in music reviews.. And now that he’s back to pavilion.. I better be a tad careful (megs control kar yaar 😳 )

In Ishq with Ishqiya…!!

When it’s a movie by Vishal Bharadwaj you can only expect the songs to be out of this world… and true to my world.. Vishal ne meri laaj rakhli 😛

Kkiieekkiieekkiee :mrgreen:

In short the songs are superfantasmashingbulous

Here’s my review 😛

~~~

Dil tho Baccha hai jee

Magar saccha hai jee

Gaana ye ati Uttam hai jee

Isse sunna bahut Zaruri hai jee

Ibn E Batuta bagal mein joota

Masti hai is gaane mein kooti

Isne hai mera dil loota

Jo na sune uska dimag foota


Ab mujhe koi intzaar kahaan

Vishal ne kya dhun bajayi yahaan

Rekha ke Madhur awaaz mein

Kho gaya mera dil aur jahaan


Badi dheere jali raina

Is gaane ka tho wah kya kehna

VB ke music aur rekha ke awaz ne

Fir kho gaya mera chaina


Remixes hai aur teen

Wo bhi kaafi behetareen

Album ho gaya khatam

Nahi hota mujse yakeen


Waah kyaa music kaa jaam pilaaya

Muje poori tarah se behosh karke hilaaya

Remixes nachayenge sabko hi par

Baaki ke gaano ne mujhe pyaar se sehlaaya

Kkiieekkiieekkiiee :mrgreen:

Awrighty..!! Don’t worry you know me…

WATS meggie without long review posts right..??

Those who are satisfied with the above review jus leave your comments…

For those who can’t get enuff of my insanity… proceed…. :mrgreen:

Here’s the detailed analysis 😈

~~~

Dil tho baccha haiRahat Fateh Ali Khan –  reminiscent of an old song…ek na ek din yeh kahani banegi tu mere sapno ki rani banegi sung by Mukesh and yes the music too is a tad old filmy effect… but when its Vishal’s music u will love it completely 😀 Rahat’s perfect rendition not a single flaw.. Loved it…Loved it… Loved it… For all Rahat Fans Must Listen.. And for all others CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN 😈

Ibn e BatutaSukhwinder Singh& Mika – remember dilli -6.. Now combine Genda Phool and masakali – this is a super duper aviyal of them both 😀 (For those who don’t understand wat aviyal is check out Google 😛 ).. But this is simple piece of marveloustically zabrakoo number… I loved it.. The slight harkats that sukhwinder has given is splendid.. Ok agreed he can’t beat Mohit but he has done good justice to this.. Sounds like a chaotic song.. With a few funny lyrics here n there.. But CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Ab Mujhe KoiRekha Bharadwaj – A soft soulful ballad.. A perfect night time listening song.. a time when the world sleeps and you are just sitting by the window or balcony and looking outside with a full moon shining in the sky and there is a tiny song in your heart.. One of those moments when you reminisce life.. Or maybe sitting by the window on a rainy day and in a very nostalgic mood.. This is a perfect song for those nostalgic moments..In some places though this reminded me of mera kuch samaan(Ijaazat) (co-incidentally that was a naseer film too 😉 )… Never knew Rekha could explore this genre of music too.. She’s swell in this song.. And the music simply out of the world…CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Ibn e batutaremix – sigh..!! For me the funda for remixes is very simple.. If you love the original you tend to like the remix too.. And this one is a FAB number too J infact I loved the crazy frog effect given in the start.. Gives it a goofy feel.. And yes I love it I love it I love it 🙂 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN yaa I know remix hai par fir bhi 😛

Badi Dheere jaliRekha Bharadwaj – The starting reminded me of Kaa Karoo Sajni (esp the fusion version by abhijit pohankar)… Another soulful ballad… loved it… I was just so swayed in the song that mom had to actually come and tap me n call me for dinner 😳 yep that mesmerizing it is… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Dil tho baccha hairemix –  like I’ve said before if you love the original u tend to like the remix too.. I’m kinda partial in this regards 😛 a wee bit of angrezi in between paras and I love it completely like the original one too 😀 personally I wud recommend it but bein a neutral party wen it comes to review I wud give it a LISTENABLE

IBN e batutaNucleya remix– now this is wat I call a remix.. With the electronic effect and everything.. Fab fab.. A wee bit of mixing effect.. This is easily gonna take place of Dhan Te Nan… You Bet it will..!!! This makes nod my head and def LISTENABLE

~~~

With VB you can be damn sure he will not let you down.. Neither with his movies nor with his songs.. And definitely NOT with his MUSIC 🙂 I give this one a 4/5..

Why -1 you might ask… Areeee ask naaah..  cos I wanna tell why… so ask… please ask.. 😆

Sigh..!! So for those sweet souls 🙂 who asked and for those bad peepl 👿 who dint.. I still tell you why… 😉

cos I want more…. YE DIL MAANGE MORE… not just 4 songs and 3 remixes…MISTER BHARADWAJ are you listening..

We want more..!!! We want more..!!! We want more..!!!

He’s just a class of his own 🙂

Yeaa yeaa im a VB fan can’t help it 😀

So that’s it from Megzone for today..!!! 😉

Keep Smiling..!!! Keep Rocking..!! Keep Blogging..!!!

Cheerios….!!!
