Daawat-e-ishq (Music review), Hindi – Sajid-Wajid
The title song is a pleasant, catchy power qawali sung with the perfect verve by Javed Ali and Sunidhi – lovely listen! Mannat starts off dreamily, but eventually – and disappointingly – moves on to Sanjay Leela Bhansali territory, thereby diluting the impact completely. Rangreli, despite the energetic sound, is outdated 90s music. Ditto with Jaadu tone walliyan, that, beyond the pulsating sound, sags with sheer pointlessness. But Shayarana closes the soundtrack on a high with its imaginative rock’ish qawali mix, though Shalmali seems to be trying a bit too hard with her fangled vocals. Sajid-Wajid get two songs right!
