Ram-leela (Music review), Hindi – Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Posted by Karthik

Bhoomi Trivedi’s convincing rendition makes Ram chahe worth it, and Sanjay rocks the techno-garba Nagada sang, aided by Shreya Ghoshal’s fantastic singing! Aditya Narayan comes of age in Ishqyaun and Tattad tattad, the former, cringe-worthy, and the latter, a South Indian-style kuthu, cooked to perfection! Mor bani‘s earthy sound is amplified by excellent vocals and the hook’s persistent ring. Of the five indulgent, droning pieces left, only Arijit Singh’s Laal ishq and Shreya Ghoshal’s Dhoop make the cut, with their Rahman’ish and Ismail Darbar’ish sounds, respectively. From Saawariya and Guzaarish, this is some, limited progress for Sanjay as a composer.

Note: To save myself some time from responding to multiple comments about how Guzaarish was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s composing debut, and not Saawariya, let me add here that ‘Thode Badmaash’ from Saawariya was composed by and credited to Sanjay, not Monty Sharma. That’s where Sanjay started his composing spree.
