Dheere Dheere, jiya ko dheere dheere, apna sa laage hai saibo. Sachin-Jigar are once again here to prove themselves, and this time they use the voices of Shreya Ghoshal and Tochi Raina to prove their point.
The first song of the album called ‘Shor in the City’ is definitely not shor of city. Shreya starts the song in her soft voice with a light Punjabi accent and then Tochi almost adds a new life to it. The variation in terms of instruments is something to watch out for in the song. Wonderful use of Indian instruments in between so many western ones while Sachin-Jigar keep the melody simple. Delighting.
The next song, though, more talks like Shor. Karma is a bitch sung by Suraj Jagan, Priya and Swati is more of an experimental one and gives a feeling of Robot in some places, the way it is arranged. The Hindi rap (karma khula saand) and dera-dam-dam-dam-da are some good parts. With some publicity and a good video, the song may pick up well.
Shor, sung by the strong-voiced but much unkown singer Mohan, is yet another track to be heard. Like all other songs of him, this one again has some inspiring lyrics and even the song is not a ‘naav,’ it’s worth a try. If I say the song reminds me of Indian Ocean, you may be a bit too high on expectations, so I’d leave the comment and just recommend you the song without much specifications.
The next comes Dheem Dheem Tana, which is sung by Shriram Iyer, is yet another ‘different’ song with some Hindi rapping, in some places with Sanskrit tatsam words, the song has some good vocals and arrangements too, but somehow it doesn’t leave much impact. Okay stuff.
The album also has a remix of Saibo and Roop Kumar Rathod’s teri justajoo, Agnee’s Ujale Baaz and Kailasa’s Babam bam babam as bonus tracks.
Overall, Sachin-Jigar and Harpreet’s Shor in the City has some good songs and Dheere Dheere and Shor leave an impact. Do try this one.
