"inglish is a heartfelt exploration of the ups and downs of being part of the world’s fastest-growing floating tribe—part global citizen, part cultural refugee."
"While it’s fair to assume there are questions of struggling to assimilate or “internal biases” among Indians and those of Indian origin, the first glimpse of inglish — “postradition” – isn’t exactly intense or anguished as it is charismatic in its blend of Indian classical, jazz, rock, prog and more."
"The big draw is that instead of being driven from the excitement of intellectual musical ideas, Saran lets emotional aims guide his creation – and that separates ‘inglish’ from the majority of the work in the genre."

"[Hmayra] features rich climaxes as well as intermittent valleys and peaks, with Saran’s solos veering in and out like a pedestrian weaving through a packed sidewalk in Bangalore."
- Jazz Weekly
"There's a simple, straightforward goodness to these songs that are a pleasure to hear. His intermingling of his Indian heritage with modern jazz sounds show great skill without insisting upon itself."
"[Saran's] exposure to Western music helped him come up with a unique style that is a mix of classical and contemporary Indian music, modern jazz, neo-soul, and rock."
