Anushka Sharma doesn’t belong to a filmy background and has achieved everything in the industry on her own. She intended to pursue a career in journalism and modelling but ended up being one of the most successful actresses in the industry. The “Zero” actress is extremely proud of what she has achieved and so are we.

“Ek Onkaar” as we know represents the one and the only supreme reality and is a central tenet of the Sikh religious philosophy. Jasbir Jassi Bains’ loud and vibrating voice booms through in a beautiful way, hence exuding divine magic. RATING: 4/5
A sweet and spicy composition by Tanishk Bagchi sung beautifully by the experts Arijit Singh and Asees Kaur. “Ve Maahi” is a heavenly romantic number penned down by Bagchi himself. RATING: 5/5
A mindblowing, patriotic number which will make emotions ooze out of you and make you nostalgic for your land, your country etc. Manoj Muntashir and Kumaar have penned down the most heartfelt lyrics. Arko Pravo and Tanishk’s composition, as well as B Praak’s singing, will make you swoon and fall in love with this song. RATING: 4/5
“Sanu Kehndi” is a jhakaas, dance number that will make you put on your party shoes and dance💃🏽 like crazy. Romy and Brijesh Shandilya have sung it really well. The dhol by Hanif Aslam & Group and live rhythms and percussions conducted by Dipesh Varma are impressive. They also add to the Punjabiness of the track, but the lyrics by Kumaar outshine everything else. RATING: 3/5
Ajj Singh Garjega
This power-packed song sung by Jazzy B starts with the beautiful music from the Punjabi folk instrument Tumbi. The fierce, patriotic spirit shown by Akshay Kumar and the other warriors is worthy of appreciation and accolades. Kunwar Juneja’s deep lyrics will surely motivate you. RATING: 3/5
“Deh Shiva” has both the male and the female versions of it. The male version is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and the female version by Jasleen Royal. You’ll love Jasleen Royal’s version more than the male one, as she has composed the music on her own. The lyrics have been written by the 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji himself. This song is a dose of spirituality and is unlike anything else that you’ve heard before. RATING: 5/5

“Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi” starring Kangana Ranaut takes us back to the 1830s, ’40s and 50s when Rani Lakshmibai reigned as the queen of Jhansi in North India. The film is based on the life of Rani Laxmi Bai and her war against the British East India Company, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
The film’s soundtrack is composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy (the phenomenal composer trio) and the lyrics are written by Prasoon Joshi. Many Super-talented singers came together to sing these wonderful songs. Let’s read the GaanaP review for these songs below.
Speaking about the song ‘Vijayi Bhava’, Shankar Mahadevan had reportedly said that in any musician’s career, a film like “Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi” becomes a landmark. According to him, it was a challenging and musically enriching experience as a singer and composer. Even the chorus did a mindblowing job. The official video is out and looks absolutely dazzling. Rating: 3/5
An outstanding melody composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, written by Prasoon Joshi and sung by Shankar Mahadevan. “Bharat” will make the patriotic feelings ooze out of you like lime juice. Prasoon Joshi recites the poetry part in the song. We are anxiously waiting for the official video to release. Rating: 3/5
Bolo Kab Pratikar Karoge
A brave, hair raising song in the voice of accomplished singer Sukhwinder Singh, “Bolo Kab Pratikar Karoge” asks for Pratikar or revenge for all the brutality and misdeeds of the British. Prasoon Joshi’s smashing lyrics and the chorus part sung by the adept chorus comprising of Mani Mahadevan, Arun Kamath, Nihal Shetty, Vikas Joshi, Varun Uday & Rituraj Sen add life and energy to this motivating song. Rating: 3/5
A mesmerising track dedicated to the Maharaja of Jhansi, Raja Gangadhar Newalkar. Pratibha Singh Baghel and Ravi Mishra’s mellifluous singing will steal your heart and make you elated. It’s an absolutely classy and heart-touching composition by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy for the mighty king. Rating: 4/5
A reworked version of the original Shiva Tandav Stotram written by Ravana, the king of Lanka. Shankar Mahadevan modified and altered it in a convincing manner. This track goes really well with the theme of the film. Rating: 5/5
“Taki Taki” is a sugary, syrupy sweet melody sung by the extremely talented singer from Madhya Pradesh, Pratibha Singh Baghel. This mesmerising melody is shown to express Kangana Ranaut’s delicate emotions. Rating: 5/5
“Dankila” sounds like a festive love song. Prajakta Shukre, Shrinidhi Ghatate, Siddharth Mahadevan & Arunaja contribute to singing this fabulous dance song. “Dankila” will surely add a spark to all your celebrations in 2019. Without help from the chorus, the singers wouldn’t have been able to perform this well. Rating: 5/5
‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi’ is directed by Krish and Kangana Ranaut and also features actors like Jisshu Sengupta, Ankita Lokhande, Suresh Oberoi, Danny, Denzongpa and others in the key role.

Album Info Music: Tanishk Bagchi, Lijo George, DJ Chetas, S.Thaman Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed, Rashmi Virag, Kumaar Singers: Neha Kakkar, Mika Singh, Kumar Sanu, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Asees Kaur, Nakash Aziz, Tanishk Bagchi, Dev Negi, Goldi, Arijit Singh Album Released: December 2018
The story of Sangram “Simbaa” Bhalerao played by Ranveer Singh, an orphan-turned-cop from Shivgadh, the same town where Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgan) was raised, takes us back to the Singham movie. Quite Opposite to Bajirao’s integrity and honesty, Simbaa takes complete advantage of the situation and leads the life of a corrupt cop. However, when his dear ones are abused, he finds himself changed and is forced to select a more righteous path.
Below we’ll talk about the songs composed by Tanishk Bagchi, Lijo George – DJ Chetas and S. Thaman.
A dhamakedaar party track to make your new year super-awesome. Tanishk Bagchi has been extremely creative with the composition. Kumar Sanu is back after a long time along with Neha Kakkar and Mika Singh to make you put your dancing shoes on. Enjoy this song on the GaanaPehchaana app. Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan look gorgeous in this song. Rating: 4/5
Tanishk Bagchi has intelligently retained the nostalgia and mushy melody of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s original track “Tere Bin Nahi Lagda Dil Mera” while appropriately mixing it with a modernistic arrangement that today’s generation can relate to. Asees Kaur, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Tanishk Bagchi’s voices mix together to create magic. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan always does justice to his father’s remakes. Rating: 5/5
Aala Re Aala
“Aala Re Aala” is a bang on colourful number which launched Ranveer Singh in the movie ‘Simmba’. He is seen performing a super-energetic dance sequence along with an entire crew of men and women decked up in Maharashtrian costumes with saffron flags. Listening to “Aala Re Aala Simmba Aala” in Dev Negi and Goldi’s voices will make you dance like crazy. Rating: 4/5
Mera Wala Dance
This song shows Ranveer Singh, Sara Ali Khan and Ajay Devgan dancing together in one frame. Ajay Devgan’s grand entry looks absolutely smashing. Kumaar is the perfect lyricist for this song. Neha Kakkar and Nakash Aziz create a booming party atmosphere with their marvellous voices. Rating: 3/5
Bandeya Re Bandeya
“Kanka Num Tara Num, Tandar Na Num Tara Num, Bandeya Re Bandeya, Bandeya Re Bandeya, Raah Pe Chal Bandeya”. This one’s a musical masterpiece composed and programmed by Tanishk Bagchi, sung by the sensational Arijit Singh and Asees Kaur along with support from the phenomenal chorus including Chayan Ghosh, Nickhiel Jain, Rahul Pandey, Purnima Solanki & Unnati Shah. The music by Bagchi is such that it will connect you to the basic theme of the film. Rating: 5/5
Simmba Theme 1/ Theme 2
We have 2 theme melodies for this film which are played as soon as we have some moment of victory for Simmba (Sangram Bhalerao) our head of police. The first one is composed and programmed by Tanishk Bagchi, the master musician himself with additional percussions by Krishna Kishore and Team. The music was mixed and mastered by Eric Pillai. The 2nd theme track was composed by S. Thaman. Rating:2/5
The film is a full-on entertaining one and there are many people who wish to watch it more than once. It’s not just the movie that’s a super-duper hit one, but the songs and their videos are absolutely amazing as well. They are sure to rank amongst the best songs of 2019. THREE CHEERS FOR SIMMBA!!!
OUR PICK(S): We choose “Tere Bin” as our most favourite song from the album.
