Music review: The Great Indian Butterfly (Hindi – Assorted Artists)

Posted by Karthik

Shibani’s markedly North-Eastern Thodi thodi saanjh is hugely impressive, while her other track, Keh leh dil se exposes her vocal limits and passes muster. Deepak Pandit’s Kangana has a ghazal-like texture and Ghulam Ali’s version saves it from mediocrity. His other songs, Meera and The Jesus song merely meander. Gourav Dasgupta’s English numbers, Alone and Pretty butterfly, carry a failed Indian band singing in a dingy pub feel – Shweta Vijay’s vocals accentuating that unfortunate feeling. A couple of other English tracks filling this soundtrack too hold a similar outlook, with either messy singing or compositions. This butterfly seems swatted!
