Shaitan (Music review), Hindi – Prashant Pillai, Ranjit Barot, Amar Mohile, Mikey McCleary, Anupam Roy & Bhayanak Maut
Prashant Pillai’s Bali is trippy, but perhaps goes overboard. He gets his groove in Nasha and O Yaara – eminently tuneful, both! It’s also easy to identify Amit Trivedi in his adequately-grungy Fareeda. Amar Mohile’s RGV-influenced mediocrity thankfully ends with Josh, while Mikey McCleary’s reggae-recreation of Hawa hawai is Suman Shridhar’s show! Chandan Shive’s superb vocals power Ranjit Barot’s techno-Maharashtrian Pintya. Ranjit’s Zindagi and Amy’s Theme work wonderfully well too! Anupam Roy’s Retro pop shit and Prashant’s Enter and Outro offer delightful soundscapes, while Bhayanak Maut’s Unleashed is music bhayanakally gone haywire. Shaitan’s soundtrack is dizzying, eclectic, indulgent and occasionally overdone.
