Aisha (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

Suno Aisha, while sounding like any other track by Vishal-Shekhar or Shankar Ehsaan Loy, has enough nuances in the interludes and backgrounds that makes it instantly likeable, complete with a captivating pitch change towards the end. Tochi Raina’s Gal mithi mithi bol, pulls it off in similar style – the tune seems standard, but it is in the orchestration that Amit adds such spark that it becomes incredibly catchy, particularly that shehnai that accompanies almost throughout. Sham is lovely…the way the vocal harmony joins in select places and the overall manner in which a simple guitar adds to the tune…works perfectly. Behke behke is nothing short of a pulsating celebration of sorts – that punchy orchestration…that vaudevillian sound and Anushka Manchanda’s superb vocals…absolute delight! Anusha Mani towers above other singers in the mellow Lehrein…Amit proves yet again that his magic lies in the way he arranges the songs far more than the tune; even a seemingly standard tune comes beautifully alive. And then… By The Way! One heck of an alluring song, with Anushka’s enthralling singing in a brilliantly energetic rock package. Composer Amit Trivedi is here to stay; his Aisha proves that beyond any doubt by being supremely entertaining!
