Shab (Music review), Hindi – Mithoon

Arijit’s sullen rendition in O saathi doesn’t help at all. Or, it’s just Mithoon’s maudlin tune and lyrics combination. Things don’t improve in Musafir; despite KK’s singing making a difference, Mithoon’s tune just refuses to make any headway from the current rut he seems to be stuck in. Afiya is strike three! The faux-sufi sound […]

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 […]

Bolo har har har is almost medley’ish, trying to do something for everyone – Badshah’s rap stands out amidst the busy-everything. Darkhaast is vintage Mithoon – dulcet melody, expertly mounted with a sound that alternates between serene, minimal sounds and an energetic Coldplay’ish backdrop. Mithoon’s last song, Tere naal ishqa, is the soundtrack’s most jaded […]

Neki ki raah is resonant and fits the sermon-like lyrics; Arijit Singhs (!) it in his characteristic style. Keh bhi de is lovely – a serene and beautifully orchestrated duet that gains tremendously from two good singers – Benny Dayal & Palak Muchhal. Palak tries an encore in Kuch der, but the pensive tune painfully […]

Of the two songs by Mithoon, the title song works smoothly given it mixes racy guitars with his trademark melody, sung darn well by Arijit. His other, Tere liye, is mind-numbingly maudlin. Amaal’s Hua hain aaj is an odd throwback to Nadeem-Shravan’s music, while Gazab ka hain is middlingly breezy, propped by Arijit’s vocals. Falak […]

Devi Sri Prasad faithfully recreates his Telugu hit for Daddy Mummy, with the Tamil version’s lyrics. It remains absurdly catchy. Yo Yo Honey Singh’s Aankhon aankhon is right up there with Daddy Mummy for its thumpy catchiness and marginally better lyrics. Arko’s recreation of Sajid-Wajid’s original for Sonu Nigam’s Deewana, Iss qadar pyar works easily […]

Shabbir Ahmed’s wishful thinking of 4 Saturdays in a week is the only solace of Amaal Malik’s Char shanivaar. Himesh gets Arijit for Baaton ko teri, but the tune is monotonous and painfully simplified. But Himesh’s other two songs are pretty good – the catchy Punjabi mix of Yolo, sung fabulously by Sreeramachandra, and the […]

Arijit carries the title song wonderfully – he expresses the desperation in Rashmi Virag’s lyrics beautifully, set to a poignant tune by Jeet. The Jeet-sung version is a great listen as well. Jeet’s other song, Yeh kaisi jagah has better backgrounds than tune, but Deepali Sathe elevates that with her vocals. Papon is expectedly good […]

Ankit Tiwari plays with Katra katra‘s backgrounds impressively, and nails the endearing tune as well, besides singing it really well, along with Prakriti Kakar. Mithoon’s Awaara has a tune that is both familiar and oddly enough, middlingly sung by both Altamash Faridi and Saim Bhatt. Jeet’s Chand aasmano se laapata is right up his alley […]

Tony Kakkar’s sole contribution, Sawan aaya seems like an odd, dated mix of Mithoon and Nadeem Shravan. The Unplugged version, despite being awkwardly sung by Tony, brings out the melody better. Mithoon opens his account with Hum naa rahein, yet another track that sounds exactly like any Mithoon number, but Benny’s soft turn offers good […]
