Padmaavat (Music review), Hindi – Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Posted by Karthik

Ghoomar‘s steady percussion is as hypnotic as Shreya Ghoshal’s vocals, though the tune is functional. Sanjay’s tune works better in Ek dil, a maudlin melody that gains from Shivam Pathak’s singing and the orchestration. Sanjay’s effort in bringing the Central Asian sound in Khalibali works well within its catchy outlook, while a similar approach in Binte dil falls flat, with Arijit Singh sounding awkward. Nainowale ne is the soundtrack’s best, with its lilting retro’ish sound and Neeti Mohan’s fantastic vocals! The traditional Manganiyar/Langa Holi song is handled with grace and authenticity. Largely mawkish soundtrack in true Sanjay Leela Bhansali style.

    Bhansali is a good composer and his soundtracks come out well, but I feel he’s going to struggle to hit the highs of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas on his own…

  • Sarthak Parashar

    I just came to know that 3 of Shreya’s songs haven’t been included in the soundtrack. They would’ve been beautiful.

    • Janasheen

      Really? There are no more songs in the film. Even Nainowaale ne is not there in the film.

  • Janasheen

    Loved Nainowale ne, Binte Dil, Ghoomar and Ek dil hai. Nice soundtrack.

  • I loved Binte Dil but still can’t believe that is Arijit Singh! 🙂

  • Noufal

    I quite liked arjit in binte dil actually. …yes he sounds different but I guess it’s a welcome change from his habit. of sounding the same regardless of what type of song it is….as stated nainowale is a song and half with impeccable vocals by neeti….the rest didn’t work for me…. Decent album this…. cheers….
