Baadshaho (Music review), Hindi – Tanishk Bagchi, Ankit Tiwari, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, R D Burman

Posted by Karthik

Tanishk does a good job of recreating Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s Mere rashke qamar! He weaves Nusrat’s voice over Rahat’s and keeps the backgrounds graceful. An abominable Tulsi Kumar version and an atrocious remix follow. Tanishk’s other recreation Socha hai (Pancham’s Kehdoon tumhe, from Deewar) is surprisingly good, with tasteful music adorning Jubin and Neeti’s vocals. In Piya more, Ankit Tiwari craftily recreates his 2014 song Nasha sar pe and spruces it up into a catchy concoction. Kabir’s lines get a lovely lease of musical life through Neeraj Arya’s Kabir Café in Hoshiyar rehna. Baadshaho’s recreations form a decent soundtrack.

    I really like the Mere Rashke Qamar refix, it’s well-composed and maintains the soul of the original, while still being unique. Socha Hai is nice too… I like this trend of having some of the original vocals there.

    On a side note, I’m really tired of Tulsi Kumar being forced onto composers, especially in duets. T-Series Mixtapes had some really good songs this season, but two of them were ruined by her voice.

    Same for Neha Kakkar… she’s fine in a “Kala Chashma” type remake, but beyond that, her voice is jarring.
