22nd MUSIC MASTANI MONTHLY AWARDS (AUGUST 2016)

So I’ve finally completed the reviews for August, and the albums that will be counted in these awards are ‘Fever’, ‘The Legend Of Michael Mishra’, ‘Budhia Singh: Born To Run’, ‘Rustom’, ‘Mohenjo Daro’, ‘Happy Bhag Jayegi’ and ‘A Flying Jatt’. All seven albums were unique in their own way, and I don’t think any of them were bad; the lowest rating being a ‘प’ for ‘The Legend Of Michael Mishra’! So it will be a tough time for me to decide the winners.. I just hope you agree with whatever I ultimately decide! [There are three albums that scored the same rating नी, but they are all on different levels of the rating!]

So let’s get started!
