Guzaarish (Music review), Hindi – Sanjay Leela Bhansali

The title song, with its sparse European sound has a charming tune, but Sau gram zindagi sounds labored, tune and lyrics-wise. Tera zikr is dialog camouflaged as tune and repetitively hams, while Saiba gets its sound right, but everything else wrong, particularly Vibhavari’s vocals. Jaane kiske’s George Michael’ish sound endears and Udi’s nuanced, riot of North African sound too; Sunidhi rocks here! Keh na sakun, Daayein baayein and Dhundhli are indistinguishably melancholic and predictable, while Chand ki katori falls into the same pattern, but at least stands out for Harshdeep Kaur’s vocals. Please get yourself a music composer, Mr. Bhansali.
