Akira (Music review), Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar

Posted by Karthik

In Rajj rajj ke, while Sonakshi struggles hard, Nahid Afrin—the Indian Idol finalist from Assam—handles the angsty tune effortlessly in the other version. The remix evens out the angst to make an odd dance track. Purza is vintage Vishal-Shekhar! Breezy tune, brilliantly sung by Arijit, with a dash of Latino, and a surprising smattering of thavil in the second stanza! Shekhar is fantastic in the rhythmic, North-Eastern’ish melody of Kehkasha*. Baadal is Sunidhi’s show all the way, though the pop tune is conventional enough, but with some inventive guitar work by Adil Manuel. Vishal-Shekhar in good form again, after Sultan.

Keywords: Akira, Vishal-Shekhar

*Kehkasha is based on Vishal-Shekhar’s own Marathi song from Balak Palak, Haravali Pakhare.
