Music Review: Bogan (Tamil)

Composer(s): D. Imman
Listen to the songs online here: Saavn

Yet another functional soundtrack from Imman, the only redeeming factors this time being Vaarai Vaarai, a semi-classical melody sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Shreya Ghoshal, the racy Hindustani-rock fusion Yaaro Yaaro Avan (Vijay Prakash) and the breezy Senthooran (Into Genga).

Music Review: Jomonte Suviseshangal (Malayalam)

Composer(s): Vidyasagar
Listen to the songs online here: YouTube (Malayalam Muzik247)

Abhay Jodhpurkar makes a fantastic debut in Malayalam with the mellifluous Ilaiyaraaja-like melody Nokki Nokki and giving him pitch-perfect company is Merin Gregory. Balram does wonders with his impeccable rendition of the folky Poonkaattey, but it's Sujatha and Najim Arshad who deliver the soundtrack's best in the form of NeelakashamJomonte Suviseshangal showcases Vidyasagar's flair for melodies yet again.

Music Review: Befikre (Hindi)

Composer(s): Vishal-Shekhar
Listen to the songs online here: Saavn

Befikre is mostly forgettable barring Nashe Si Chadh Gayi, a groovy melody led by Arijit Singh. Je T'aime, another pick, exudes a bouncy sing-along charm, while the Middle-Eastern flavoured title song (reminiscent of Dhoom 2's Touch Me), despite Benny Dayal's exuberant vocals, fails to entice.
