Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat (Hindi) - Amit Trivedi

Mohabbat se hi toh Kranti aayegi! Rarely has a single line of one song been able to put an entire film into perspective. Anurag Kashyap’s Almost Pyaar With DJ Mohabbat had the phrase “An Amit Trivedi Musical” on all its posters.

Animal (Hindi) - Ensemble

The score of Animal is composed by Harshwardhan Rameshwar and its soundtrack — curated by director Sandeep Reddy Vanga himself — is credited to an impressive assortment of artists.

Jailer (Tamil) - Anirudh 

Audiences may be sceptical about the writing, performances and direction of a film, but when Anirudh is the music director, we know that “avan pathipan” (he will take care of it). And man, does he cook! Anirudh delivers banger after banger.

Jawan (Hindi) - Anirudh

Jawan marked the Hindi film debut of composer Anirudh Ravichander. The title track is a triumph, from the instantly memorable whistling to Raja Kumari’s rap verses. 

Jubilee (Hindi) - Amit Trivedi

Not once, not twice, but thrice, Amit Trivedi's music has lifted Vikramaditya Motwane's artistry into the realm of the sublime.Jubilee is the only streaming show that had a soundtrack rich enough to hold its own next to conventional film soundtracks.

Leo (Tamil) - Anirudh

The year has been good for Anirudh Ravichander, he delivered three amazing soundtracks that travelled the world in three months. Anirudh shone the brightest when he was working with his ‘EDM paiyyan’ Lokesh Kanagaraj.

Ponniyin Selvan 2 (Tamil) - A.R. Rahman

Rahman’s intuitive use of score moves the story forward, and sometimes acts even as a gorgeous substitute for emotions that are too deep to be conveyed by dialogue.

Pareshan (Telugu) - Yashwanth Nag

Yashwanth Nag’s work in Pareshan has a wild spirit that makes the composer a talent to watch out for. Pareshan is a truly inventive soundtrack with indie energy that may sound like we are stereotyping it, but it is exactly this vibe that sets the album apart.

Sapta Sagaradaache Ello (Kannada) - Charan Raj 

The highlight of Hemanth M Rao’s Sapta Sagaradaache Ello is the beautiful soundtrack by Charan Raj. He brings in his signature aural poetry to the visuals and soundtrack. The album is eclectic.

Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar (Hindi) - Pritam

Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar is a quintessential Pritam album, which means the songs feel delightfully contemporary and pleasantly familiar.
