Phulki – A hindi music search engine

Posted by Rahul Narula on July 22, 2008

Do you have trouble finding the hindi music of your choice ? Phulki, a new hindi music search engine is there to help you in your pursuit. The interface is slick with search results page using the Yahoo YUI API’s to make use of the Ajax features. Some of the features that I like are

  • An in-built player to play the music directly from the search result
  • You can create you own personalized playlists of the searched songs (requires login)
  • Search possible on all attributes of a song including movie, year, singer, album etc
  • The home page list some of the popular searches, latest releases and featured playlist

A few features I would like to be added and I feel are missing currently are

  • The player should be allowed to be popped out in a new window else one may accidentally close the browser window or move away
  • A search result item should be allowed to be rated and then sorting should be provided
  • A search result should include number of times song has been played

All-in-all a very handy and a nice tool to use if you are a music buff.
