Talvar (Music review), Hindi – Vishal Bhardwaj

Pakistani singer Arooj Aftab is the soul of Insaaf. She brings her best known trait—breathy vocals that rocked her cover versions of Pakistan’s and the sub-continent’s iconic classics—to add stupendous value to Vishal’s minimal sound. Vishal does an encore with Shaam ke saaye, using Arijit’s voice to create sheer magic in an almost-Pancham tune with exotic lounge’ish music that ends spell-bindingly in the last minute! Patli gali and Zinda are the opposite – Sukhwinder and Rekha Bhardwaj get songs that they’re pigeon-holed at, and beyond the lyrics, they are less interesting. 2 out of 4 again for Vishal, like Drishyam.
