Musical Sameekshaa Trimester-II Awards 2015 – Nominees (April, May, June)

Welcome to the second trimester awards for the months of April, May and June.

April was a mixed month of good and bad, experimental and commercial albums. Detective Byomkesh Bakshi turned out to be one of the most well experimented albums of Hindi film music. Ek Paheli Leela was a purely commercial album with all the typical romantic and item numbers. Among the smaller albums, Margarita With A Straw by Mikey McCleary was a genuinely good stuff. Among the big albums, Mr. X was a big let down.

May started with all good stuffs. Gabbar Is Back had Teri Meri Kahaani which was loved by all. Bengali composer Soham Roy made his Bollywood debut with Piku, another simple lovable soundtrack. Then May had also the giant one Bombay Velvet by Amit Trivedi which proved to be worth the wait. It was a tremendous soundtrack. Last but not the least, it also had Tanu Weds Manu Returns which had each song enjoyable.

June started with Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s predictably decent album Dil Dhadakne Do, had Humari Adhuri Kahaani by Jeet Ganguli, Mithoon and the debutante Ami Mishra and ended with a blast in the form of Sachin-Jigar’s ABCD 2.
