Anaarkali of Aarah (Music review), Hindi – Rohit Sharma
Swati Sharma is unabashedly brash in Dunaliya mein and Mora piya, the latter working fervently into a qawali’ish rhythm. Indu Sonali’s Lahanga jhaanke and Hamre jobna too are expectedly ribald. Rohit creates a poignant, beautifully raaga based thumri, Badnaam jiya that Rekha Bhardwaj handles with quintessential grace. Pawni Pandey rocks the Bhojpuri dance floor with the spirited, bawdy Aye sakhi and Mera balam, while turning Sa ra ra into a fiery revenge narrative! Rohit sounds tentative in Laal laal, while Man beqaid huva—the soundtrack’s most disparate—is a charming melody that Sonu Nigam effortlessly aces. Relentlessly bawdy and earthy, this Aarahwali!
