Raja Natwarlal (Music review), Hindi – Yuvan Shankar Raja

Dukki tikki obviously rehashes snatches of Variya from Pudhupettai, but what’s more intriguing is that it sounds more like a Thaman song than Yuvan’s! But he channelises the Bhatt-clan sound in his own way well in Tere hoke – thanks to Arijit too! Shweta Pandit’s reprise too is an excellent variant, orchestrated differently. Of the two songs Yuvan hands over to Benny Dayal, the familiarly pleasant Kabhi ruhani works over the uneven, strangely lyric’d Flip your collar. Mamta Sharma’s Namak paare is a largely banal item number. For a 100+ soundtracks old Yuvan, this is an oddly mild Hindi debut!
