Chillar Party (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi
Tai tai phish and it’s variant, Aa rela hai are high on catchy Maharashtrian folk, but are strictly passable. Mohit Chauhan’s dependable vocals and Nitesh Tiwari’s lyrics prop Chatte batte, but Ziddi piddi isn’t so lucky despite ambitious orchestration. It’s when Amit gets kids to express themselves that things sound better; Ek school banana hai displays flashes of Udaan’s form, while Behla do, smartly packaged in nostalgic retro-pop and kids’ perspectives, works too. Liar liar is underwhelming, the tune and the kids mouthing cheesy cynicism about the adult world, both. Functional music by a composer from whom we’ve heard better.
