I am. Music Review.

Amit Trivedi. 3/6. Vivek Philip. 1/6. Rajiv Bhalla. 2/6. And a good album. Onir does it quite well it seems. A review.

The album starts with Amit Trivedi’s Baangur, sung by Mame Khan and Kavita Seth. The song has that typical Amit Trivedi beat in the background but even though the album bears Amit’s signature, it is completely worth listening to. While Mame sounds a bit like Mohan only, Kavita makes things interesting for sure. A good combination of singers and music.

When the second song Isi baat pe starts, for once you may feel it’s the first song going to be repeated, but then in comes probably the first big name of an Amit Trivedi composition, KK. But somehow, since the song has the same background as Bangur, it doesn’t leave so much of an effect. A good song, nonetheless.

The next song Bojhal se, is sung by KK again, but is a composition of Rajiv Bhalla. The song is definitely one for KK though as there is very minimal music in the background and the whole ballad is lifted by KK alone. The lyrics are wonderful and all I want to say is, listen to it when u are at leisure, and you’d love it.

The next, Aankhein, is a Vivek Philip composition, and sounds like one. The song seems to follow the same style composition as in Jalte hain of Sorry Bhai. A soft, romantic, slow, but beat based song that will probably be liked the very first time you listen to it. And then, some really wonderful singing by Karthik. Do try.

In his next song, Saye Saye, Amit Trivedi gets a bit experimental and keeps Rekha Bharadwaj and Mohan singing kind of separately from the background beats. My guess is that the song is gonna be loved much by people in due time. Sounds like a slow addiction to me. Do listen to this one as well.

The last song Wandu yerudu (means one two), composed by Rajiv Bhalla, has some Hindi/Punjabi/Telugu words, in fact for the first half minute, one may think the song is Telugu only, after which Punjabi words start appearing. Not a great composition and definitely nothing like the other songs of the album. Probably an addition to the album for those who wanted a dance number, but I wonder how much it’ll work.

Anyway, overall the album is great and out of the six original tracks, five are definitely worth a listen, while Bangur and Aankhein are something to be loved. And then, Saye Saye can be the big surprise. Lovely album.

    My sincere apologies. Recently I was on a shop and talking to the Mallu shopkeeper in Kannada counting. And I suddenly realized my blunder. I know it’s Kannada but I somehow mixed it up while writing. Will correct. Thanks.

  8. I feel u should give it time to grow..All the songs have subtle touches which u may not get in one or two listenings..Especially Issi bat pe and Aankhein…Interestingly I found Issi bat Pe Remix better than original one..As an album it is pleasure to listen these songs in a loop..Onir has this ability to work with multiple MD’s and get best out of them..I feel this is on par with his masterpiece Bas Ek Pal..I would have loved to see him work with Mithoon and recreate the magic in Bas Ek Pal..
