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