Phillauri (Music review), Hindi – Shashwat Sachdev and Jasleen Royal

Posted by Karthik

Bajake tumba is earthy Punjabi template done very well, backed by Romy’s lively singing. Romy is even better in Dum dum and Sahiba, both delightfully breezy folk numbers! The former has a beautiful sufi-sound, with a captivating incantation-style twist mid-way, while the latter is an incredibly sweet melody, with Pawni Pandey joining Romy seamlessly. Diljit Dosanjh’s Dum dum is Coke Studio-clean, though. The soundtrack’s irresistible foot-stomper is Naughty billo, a hyper-enthusiastic reimagination of Jhoot boliya! Jasleen Royal—again—does her child-woman singing in Din shagna da and her out-of-comfort-zone Whats Up is rather generic. Shashwat is a talent to watch out for!

    I’ve never heard of Shashwant before this, but absolutely love Dum Dum and Sahiba. It’s a treat to hear Punjabi music that isn’t stereotypical “balle balle” or the “daroo kudi” type.

      I believe his debut was a film called Saavi – A Bonded Bride, in 2015.

    I think you missed Couple of songs like the title song by Diljit

      Ranjhana is not part of the soundtrack, I believe. Someone has added it on their own, beyond the actual soundtrack released officially by the label.

    Sahiba is such a sweet song….. and the voice is so different…. quite refreshing to listen to punjabi songs of this kind…..
