Music review: Kurbaan (Hindi – Salim-Sulaiman)

Posted by Karthik

Shukran Allah is predictably and genuinely pleasing, particularly, the prominent title phrase rings long after the song is over. Sukhwinder and Kailash Kher have a really harmonious session in Dua, while Salim excels in the Ali maula, a phrase that has been over-used, but transforms into a haunting track here. Shruti Pathak’s Rasiya is breathtakingly beautiful – not to forget, seductive! But, the toast of the soundtrack is Vishal Dadlani’s absolutely scintillating rendition of the title track – even if it reminds vaguely of the musical duo’s earlier Nazaara hai, this is a brilliant track! A wonderful soundtrack from Salim-Sulaiman!

    An amazing soundtrack. Completely hooked on to Shukran Allah & Kurbaan. Salim Sulaiman, the dark horse of Bollywood music have come up with another gem after the brilliant Fashion and RNBDJ. Four Cheers !

    Not that impressive! Before a Salim Sulaiman album at least had one good song and rest crap. But this album doesn’t even have one decent song. IMO, it is as poor as his last album (Luck?)

    Why do composers become redundant after working with either Dharma or Yash Raj Production?

  • Rasiya, mind blowing track, shruti pathak taken the song to a diff level, a simple rendering, but very powerful and emotive.

    Shukran Allah’s easy melody & Sonu’s presence works tremedously while Rasiya is undoubtedly the best track of the album. In rest of the songs, duo sounds largely repetitive. And thats not only limited to title song. Ali Maula has close similarity to Haafiz Khuda. I guess duo, still has hang over from their mighty 8×10 tasveer score. Even Dua uses some prominent hooks they have used earlier.

    Thats not it though, a bigger downer is this minimal but striking similarity. Check out the Na Na Na part…post 1 min in this video.
