  • ​""The background score and music by Mangesh Dhakde act as a fine catalyst for the film. The tracks showcase Tara's journey in her riveting political career. The song, "Chidi Chidi" crooned by Swanand Kirkire is the one to look out for."  Shreshtha Chaudhury, Film Beat, January 2021

ARTICLE 15  Trailer

original score

  • ​"The background score too will keep you on the edge of your seat." - Shibaji Roychoudhari, Times Now, June 2019

  • ​"The film is heavy on atmospherics, with the top notch cinematography and background score adding to the mood." - Sreeparna Sengupta, Times Of India, June 2019

  • ​"Where Article 15 really kills it with music is in its astounding use of "Vande Mataram". Twice. And both times I had to stifle sobs because the placement of the song in the narrative rips right through the agenda of hate being peddled by extremists currently appropriating "Vande Mataram." - Anna MM Vetticad, Firstpost, June 2019

  • " Mangesh Dhakde's music also finds its apogee in these sequences, as it highlights the sense the director wants to give to each one, with the track included in the scene where Dhavle and Mastur meet being the most memorable, filling the scene with a sense of danger emitting from the latter." - Panos Kotzathanasis, Asian Movie Pulse, September 13, 2018

NARBACHI WADI  Trailer

songs "Gazaal Khari Kai", "Shabay Shabay" & original score

  • "...You know an album can be played more than once, when you can connect with the music and Narbachi Wadi is one such album. Music composer Mangesh Dhakde (who has films like Deool and Gabhricha Paus to his credit) brings the folk meets contemporary feel to this album. With only two songs in the film, the tracks spell fun, emotion and fultoo dhamaal. Speaking of dhamaal, the Gazal Khari Kay, is one song that can get you up on your feet and dancing for sure...." - Times of India, September 2013

  • "...The songs bring out the Konkani jackfruit well to the listeners. They are an unusual mix of mass and class... Mangesh Dhakde has managed to bring pure music without resorting to tricks like item songs or some western influence to catch the masses. A highly recommended music album, this is!.." The Punekar, August 2013​
