Sultan (Music review), Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar

Posted by Karthik

Baby ko bass pasand hai starts off folk’ishly and makes good on the hook’s insanely catchy and dance-worthy techno promise! Mika’s 440 Volt is a templatized 90s-style masala track no doubt, but is infused with a lot of punchy sounds and an addictive foot-tapping rhythm. Nooran Sisters close the trio of rhythmic tracks with Tuk tuk – this one has the best punch, and wonderfully enthusiastic rendition by the sisters, while the composers layer everything from dubstep to folk sounds coherently! Rahat Fateh Ali Khan does his usual best in Jag ghoomeya, a pleasant melody with an extra spring in its rhythm, while the female version by Neha Bhasin is a beautiful contrast, with its melancholic feel. Mohit Chauhan and Harshdeep Kaur’s banter-style Sachi muchi is loaded with a lovely and highly enjoyable bluegrass’y feel, while Papon gets a delightful qawali in Bulleya that gains tremendously from his fantastic vocals. The title song is a pulsating guitar showcase, clubbed with Sukhvinder’s impactful singing and Rise of Sultan closes the soundtrack in a euphoric note, with its grand orchestration. Vishal and Shekhar’s comeback soundtrack—if you ignore the one-track Fan—offers and expansive range of songs and makes for a very good listen!
