Half Girlfriend (Music review), Hindi – Tanishk Bagchi, Farhan Saeed, Rahul Mishra, Mithoon, Ami Mishra and Rishi Rich

Posted by Karthik

Tanishk Bagchi’s Baarish is a mighty pleasant melody and the choice of instruments make a huge difference. Farhan Saeed’s Thodi der, with its earthy sound, makes an impact, but its lyrical twin, Stay A Little Longer falters with its muddled sound. Rahul Mishra’s quasi-power-sufi Tu hi is passable, while Phir bhi, its reprise, and the theme hark back to Mithoon’s stock tunes. Ami Mishra’s Lost Without You is interesting world music, on a middling tune. Rishi Rich’s Mere dil closes things on a catchy triphop’ish note, with an annoying dialogue version. Half of the 6 composers impressively woo this girlfriend.

    Why such a late review Karthik? Its almost two weeks since the music has released. Also you have not consider these songs in your recent listen for April. Look forward for new music through this site hence the enquiry 🙂

    Rather disappointing soundtrack. Maybe it’s not fair, but the last two movies based on Chetan Bhagat novels had fantastic soundtracks (Kai Po Che and 2 States).

    I rather like Thodi Der, probably the one track I might remember after the movie has come and gone.

    I’m most disappointed in Mithoon’s contribution though. Arijit sounds good, as he usually does for Mithoon, but it’s such a generic tune. And I thought Mithoon had turned the corner after some very good tracks last year (Ji Huzoori, Sanam Re, Keh Bhi De, Darkhaast, Neki Ki Raah).

    Rishi Rich Mere Dil is Very similar to his own composition in Hum Tum
