Published at


One thing that makes our living easy is music, it is a universal stress-buster, no two ways about it. 2018 was a mix in terms of music, from soul-stirring songs to party anthems. To sum up the year, we bring you the most liked and grooved on songs of the year.

# Ghoomar (Padmaavat): Starring the ethereal Deepika Padukone, sung by the melodious Shreya Ghoshal and choreographed by Kruti Mahesh Midya, Ghoomar was an audio visual treat. Considering Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s (SLB) penchant for making larger-than-life films, Ghoomar has a stunning set, beautiful costumes and jewellery which enhanced the already beautiful Deepika, and made it one of the best numbers of the year. The music was composed by SLB himself, and lyrics are by A. M. Turaz.

# Tareefan (Veere Di Wedding): The Veere Di Wedding cast (Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania) gave us a chartbuster. Though a promotional song, Tareefan in Badshah’s voice is the most loved and played number from the album. The video of the song is quirky and unique. Composed by Qaran, Tareefan was on top of the list of party tracks in 2018.

# Dilbaro (Raazi): Gulzar sahib’s soulful words met with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s soothing music and magic was created. Featuring Alia Bhatt, Dilbaro is a song that talks about the poignancy of the father-daughter relationship, and was instantly loved by the audience. Garnering appreciation and buckets full of tears, Dilbaro was a highlight point in Meghna Gulzar’s 2018 hit Raazi.

# Dilbar (Satyameva Jayate): The old hit song Dilbar, originally sung by Alka Yagnik, got an Arabic makeover for John Abraham starrer Satyameva Jayate and impressed us the same way the old one did. This time, with Nora Fatehi dolled up in all her beauty and dancing like a wave, Dilbar was a treat to listen to and in visuals as well. The new version is sung by Neha Kakkar and Dhvani Bhanushali, and is composed by Tanishk Bagchi.

# Bom Diggy Diggy (Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety): Another party number to enter our playlists was Bom Diggy Diggy from Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (SKTKS). Zack Knight remade his own 2017 hit for SKTKS in 2018, produced by Knight and Yo Yo Honey Singh. Bom Diggy Diggy was high on beats, huge in Bass, and catchy with lyrics that made you groove when played.

# Tera Yaar Hoon Main (SKTKS): The entire SKTKS album was a hit. But the standout ones were Bom Diggy Diggy and Tera Yaar Hoon Main. Arijit Singh, the man known for his heart-touching songs, sang a number on friendship, and aced it this time as well. With lyrics by Kumaar and music by Rochak Kohli, Tera Yaar Hoon Mein was the perfect song to dedicate to your best friend.

# Chogada (LoveYatri): The only thing good in Aayush Sharma and Warina Hussain’s debut film LoveYatri was the song Chogada, which was liked and appreciated. Written by Darshan Raval and Shabbir Ahmed, and sung by Raval and Asees Kaur, it is a catchy number that stays with you. This song will be on loop during the Navratri season, for some time to come now.

# F for Fyaar (Manmarziyaan): Anurag Kashyap’s new found synonym for sex, ‘Fyaar’, is the word of the year for Bollywood. Amit Trivedi’s music in Manmarziyaan was unique and not similar to any of the mainstream Bollywood tunes. F for Fyaar was the very first song and was quickly liked. Quirky lyrics, rock music and new feel made it a fun and high-energy number.

# Ishq Di Baajiyaan (Soorma): Remember when I said Gulzar and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy coming together is magic? Here Diljit Dosanjh’s deep voice adds the perfect flavor to that magic. I don’t think this song needs any validation in any sense. Let’s just listen and marvel at this soulful composition.

That was a great mix. Indian Cinema is popular to a large part because of its music and the variety of music genres it endorses. As a follower of Indian Cinema, one thing for sure is that you sign up for amazing melodies.

Gully Boy, Manikarnika – 3 music albums we are waiting for in the first quarter of 2019

Which music albums are you waiting for in the first quarter of 2019 – Gully Boy, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi or Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga?

Published at


Music is an essential part of Hindi Cinema and one aspect that makes it unique throughout the world. We have songs for every situation and emotion; happy, sad, love, hate, party, wedding, and some you can’t even imagine. For a country that has an abundance of music maestros, music is in our system and there’s no running away from it. Last year, we got to listen some melodious music albums, from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s Dilbarooor, Amit Trivedi’s Namo Namo or Naina Da Kasoor, they were on loop. With the music game growing strong and new stuff being introduced, we expect 2019 to have some superb film albums with heart-touching tracks. Let’s have a look at some of the albums we are excited about.

# Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi: This period drama is a film based on the life of Rani Lakshmibai, so we can expect some dance numbers, traditional folk music, and the historical essence. The trailer of the film has already given us a feel of how this album is going to be — exciting. And since the music is composed by our favourite music trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, that, in itself, promises a great album.

# Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga: When the title of the film is itself a line from a soothing love song of the past, the main music album must be amazing. The trailer gives us a story-line and music that look equally promising. Rochak Kohli is the music composer of the film. The trailer features a remix version of the famous Punjabi track Gud Naal Ishq Mitha and people are possibly already grooving on it at parties. With Rochak on board, a romantic song is also very likely.

# Gully Boy: Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s most anticipated film of the year Gully Boy, has to be the most anticipated in terms of music as well. For a film based on a rapper, and the hip-hop scene in Mumbai, the makers will have to up their game. The music of this film is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.  Maybe this will be the album which will introduce India to real rap culture and have us look at it with respect, rather than the cringe lyrics which we are familiar, passing off as raps. This film’s music might become a game-changer in many ways.

Let’s hope that our expectations of good film music this year aren’t squelched. Yes, we do  have our lovely, amazing old songs for our sustenance, but this is the kind of line-up we need. Which is the album you are looking forward to Let us know what you think by voting in the poll above!
