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.

Listen to the songs:

    I dont understand this new trend of making almost every lead actor sing a song in the film. Just because you have this technology? Its crazy. Even with the technology, Sonakshi is evidently struggling. I believe they are doing it for the ‘WOW’ value but its really crazy. Nahid Afrin did a good job at the same song. And why you need 3 versions of the same song? The Nahid version and the remix was enough. But other than that, good album. Vishal-Shekar are in form after a great outing in Sultan.

    I just hope they can use the auto-tune technology in a way where diff singers sing for the actors but can be made to sound as if the actor himself/herself is singing. That would be awesome. Use the concerned actor’s voice texture and blend it with the singer’s recording and see if the final output can be made to sound as if it fits well. Because most songs these days are recorded by singers whose voices dont even remotely suit the concerned actor who is performing to that song (e.g. AR Rahman singing for Vijay in Azhagiya Tamizh Magan and for Rajini in Sivaji – the songs themselves were amazing, but onscreen they looked hugely awkward).

    Kehkasha Tu Meri is rework of Vishal Shekhar’s own marathi song – Haravleli Pakhre from movie Balak Palak which was also sung by Shekhar and you had also raved about.
