Kya Dilli Kya Lahore (Music review), Hindi – Sandesh Shandilya

Posted by Karthik

Kisse lambe depends a lot on Gulzar’s verses and Sukhwinder’s free-flowing vocals; the mid-way shift to Pakistani pop style are good, but the chorus is jarring. Lakeerein fares much better with a uniform texture and fantastic vocals by Papon (along with another, uncredited singer, like Hariharan, perhaps?), not to forget lovely lines by Gulzar. The poet’s lyrics are even better in the poignant Jo dikhte ho, powered by Shafqat’s searing voice, while his lyrics complement beautifully with the lilting melody of Kaleje mien, sung by Ustad Hamid Ali Khan. Sandesh Shandilya makes excellent use of the soundtrack’s true hero, Gulzar!
