Zanjeer Music Review

The opening song of the album, Chirantan Bhatt’s Hum Hain Mumbai ke Hero is an addictive tune. But the lyrics of the song are so bad that using Amitabh Bachchan and Pran’s voices in the same song sounds bad to the legends. Anyway, Mika’s singing in the song is better than Priyanka’s acting, who, as pointed in a GIF, gets almost …

Haunted – 3D: Music Review (Chirantan Bhatt)

The album starts with KK singing Tum ho mera pyaar which for once gives you an illusion that it’s a Nadeem Shravan song with its beats and by the time I was finished with the song, I was remembering the days when Pritam used to get KK for one hit song in almost every movie, especially around Gangster. Nice and nostalgic.

The next, Jaaniya, by Siddharth Basrur, is a lovely ballad with some captivating beats. May not sound too good immediately after a rocking Tum ho mera pyaar, but a wonderful song with its own identity, nonetheless.

The next song, tera hi hona chahoon, brings in Jojo with Najam Sheraz. The song that interestingly starts with a Tabla, later turns into almost full-fledged rock number. And I’d say kudos to Chirantan for pulling that off quite well. Third song in a row that is not bad, at the least.

Next comes Mujhe de de har gham tera, which is a sad song by its lyrics but sounds soothing by its music. Interestingly (for me at least), the combination generally makes a great, at least quite good song, in longer term. And I am liking the song already. Good, but takes time, as I said.

The next name is of Nikhil D’Souza, who comes up to sing You’re so beautiful, an expectably romantic, and not-so-expectably Hindi song, in his own typical style (yeah, he has one) which gives the album a little more variety, something the album kinda lacks even with such beautiful songs.

The end of album comes with the actress Tia Bajpai singing a song called Sau Baras, and quite admirably, she sounds good even with very few instruments playing in the background. The song is more like poetry, at least the first half of it. Nice, kinda gives the album it’s only song with a female as Tum ho mera pyaar hardly gives Suzi a chance.

So overall Haunted – 3D is a ‘not bad at all’ album which one would like to listen to even though it doesn’t have much new to offer. Probably because it takes you back to those days that you haven’t probably realized have passed, or maybe simply because of its good, if not ‘very’ good, quality. Wait, was that last sentence too philosophical for a review?

Allah ke Banday: Music Review

Allah ke Banday is an album with various composers coming up together while Chirantan Bhatt seems to be leading with his Maula running already. Here is a review.

The album starts with a Sufi-rock Maula Samjha de Inhe, the song composed by Chirantan Bhatt and sung by Hamza Farooqui and Krishna. A combination that I have never seen yet but the way the song sounds all good and is running successfully, I will not be surprised if I see Hamza and Krishna singing together more in future. A complete like, with the plea made by the two leads showing up in the right attitude and the words sounding perfectly matching in the context of the movie.

The next song, kya hawa kya baadal, is composed by Kailasa, that is Kailash Kher, Naresh and Paresh, and sung by of course, Kailash himself. The song has Kailasa touch quite clear, with added electronica effects, which make the song align more to a theme type than a typical lyric-based song of the band, though the song still is a good deal about the lyrics, which is another good thing about the song. A thumbs up again.

Music Review – Shaapit: Aditya Narayan is here

The meaning of Shaapit is cursed but I don’t think Aditya Narayan will consider himself cursed for starting his career with the movie. At least the songs of the film suggest that.

Shaapit’s songs are not great but most are certainly good and worth a try. Son of prominent singer Udit Narayan, Aditya gives his voice to four songs out of seven in the movie and sounds fairly good if not a rock star. The interesting part is that Aditya is not just the hero and singer but even composer for a song. Here is a music review of Shapit.
